I have been ill for two weeks. Booooo. But I'm going to this audition tomorrow no matter what. I sang through "Will He Like Me?" and picked out my 16 bars. It's ok, makes me wish I more belty songs to throw out there when I'm not feeling well. But I'm a soprano. And I can't fake it. I just chose 16 bars that didn't include the floaty high F. :) I'm trying to fufill my dreams of only singing this song for all my auditions. I don't think it will happen but Ms. Schrock mentioned once I may be able to get away with it... Ha!

I need to get to running errands and working. I'm kinda settled in the new place. We still don't have furniture, but it'll make it here. Shelley's really high strung. I wanna punch her some days. I get frustrated easily too, but geeez. It's hard to live with someone who will always be bitching about something. Grrr. 

Oh and I saw a ballet of Edward Scissorhands last night. It was much better than I expected. Kinda dangerous. Imagine a pas de deux between a petite blonde and a tall guy with scissors for hands. But it wasn't awkward in the least, it was actually beautiful. He used his legs and other parts of his body to move her around. Hot hot hot. But I kinda doubt it's going anywhere other than Brooklyn. 

Peace, dawgs.

Ewan McGregor is hot. Moulin Rouge is on the IFC channel and I love it. 

Yesterday I took the "tram" (aka a skyride above the east river) to Roosevelt Island. By the way,  I'm scared of heights. But don't you worry, I did the raptor over there:) Seriously though it was a beautiful view and a great time to play 'I want that apartment' as we flew by. 

I am planning a trip to Louisiana the weekend after finals. Just a few days, mainly just to be with Aaron. We haven't had a trip just for us. I got us a hotel in the CBD of New Orleans and we are just going to chill. The fun part is I'm going to graduation for you fools- Betty, Maria, and Emily. I'm so excited for the trip. It's a special occasion just for us- Aaron's birthday/our two year anniversary. Gonna be freakin amazing. 

Anyway, back to my cotes du rhone and moulin rouge... congrats on the show!

I am pretty much moved into the new place, thank goodness. And to celebrate, I'm sick! Boooooo!

Hopefully I'll make it to Dinosaur BBQ tonight. I need to get better, I have work tomorrow. 

So if you want my new address just let me know. I'm off to do a little more resting before getting the rest of my stuff. I hate being sick, grrrrr!

I have an audition next week. Nothing too exciting but if I got it (probably won't, it's my first audition...) I could go equity after the tour is over with. 

I'm tired of excuses. I'm doing this. I have a life waiting on me to start. No matter where I'm taken, I've got to do some auditions.

I just got in from my wonderfully exhausting week in Louisiana/Texas. 

Austin is the best city I've been to in a long time. I wanna live there, I just wish it wasn't in Texas. Seriously though, Aaron and I both loved it and he really wants to move there and I'd love to. I want to right now. Too bad it's impossible. 

My camera's kinda broken. If i can get it to work, pictures will be on facebook. 

Kristin's wedding was amazing. She was so happy and I enjoyed being a part of it. She's my oldest best friend and I don't get emotional easily, but I almost started bawling when I saw her walk down the aisle. But I knew I wouldn't be able to sing if I did that. Damn emotional mess I am. So I was in the balcony with the organ and when I started singing, she looked up at me and waved from the altar. She's the cutest thing. I miss her and her family. The reception was absolutely stunning, looking over the hills of Austin with the sun setting- Aaron and I were in heaven. I can't wait to put the pics up.

So I was a wreck today coming back to New York. I kept crying on the plane. And I kept wondering what the guy next to me was thinking. He may have though I was crying over the Coehlo book I'm reading that Aaron gave me. Or maybe someone close to me died. Or maybe I had just gotten divorced or had some other tragic break up. But no. I'm an idiot. That's why I'm crying. I'm leaving the man who has and will always be there for me, who thinks I'm attractive even when I'm not, who takes my shit when I'm moody (and honestly, that's often) and who supports whatever I do as long as I'm happy... and I'm happiest with him. Seriously, I pondered not getting on that plane today. I want to be with him everyday so bad. 

But he needs to finish school before we can move on with our life. And I also know I'm here for a reason. I have to at least try. My aunt gave me $100 to start on my headshots. Totally unnecessary, but I nice starting point. I'm getting there. I'm just so depressed right now. I loved Austin- it has an ecclectic downtown and lots of nature too. So it pleases both of my sides- a need to be in the middle of a city that is happening and the need to be able to hike and get away and see animals and nature. Also it's nice to be within driving distance of your family.

I'm not giving up, don't judge. I'm just blah. I'm still going at my career with as much vigor as I can handle. I just don't see much coming from it. Luckily I'm going to be ok no matter what happens.

Anyway, I'm stopping here. Enough jibber jabber. I'm supposed to go out tonight but I will be a bum instead. I deserve it. I'm back to waiting tables tomorrow and I have to move this weekend. Gah, I'm over it. I will have some time off next week, so I will do what I can to fall back in love with the greatest city in the world that I am calling home for the time being.


I get lost... in your eyes...

So yeah, my vacation will start off crazy but end a bit more low key. And of course I like to be busy, as long as I'm with Aaron for most of it. 

I made $400 yesterday. It was a hard long day, but somehow it was worth it, with that money in my pocket. 

Ok time to pack, shower, and get to work.

I got to apartment in Harlem. Yessssss....!

I saw Emily Stokes tonight briefly. It was nice. It was late though- I had been in New Jersey. My friends directed and choreographed a performance of Cabaret at a high school. I had to see it to believe it. But it was pretty good. The Emcee was 15 and the best, creepiest thing I've seen in a long time. It was absolutely wonderful in that Jersey kind of way. 

Can't wait to come home. For now I have to watch some tv, sleep, and go back to work tomorrow. Such is life.

I come home next week. 
I get to sing in public next week. (*eee!*)
I get to see old friends next week. (*yesss!*)
I get to see my boyfriend next week. (*yayay!*)

I went to a wine tasting last night and I knew a lot and sparked great discussion, according to the sommelier. I love wine. I love learning about it. I can't wait to go to Napa and the redwood forest in northern cali for my honeymoon... I have years to plan, and don't think I'm not doing it already. 

My myspace got hijacked... why the hell?

I work too hard. 
I play too hard. 
I spend too much time sharing space with others in this overcrowded city. 
I get rude when I'm working. I almost feel like a nasty yankee. People don't even believe I'm from the South when they ask me. "Where's your accent? You must have been a theatre major because you have no accent. Do you do anything else besides wait tables?" And all I wanna say is "Bite me." When did serving food mean you get to give out personal information to strangers? "When did you move here? What's your name? Any suggestion as to what I should do while I'm in town? Have you been in anything I would have seen? How much do you pay for rent in the city? Which nabe do you live in? Why did you move here? Do you like it?" AAAAH! Waiting on people is one of the hardest things I will ever do in my life, I'm sure of it. Childbirth will be a breeze, I can guarantee it. But damnit, it pays the bills.

Um... this week is stressful. I still don't officially have a home. Wah. I showed everyone the raptor at work and we got yelled at for being too loud. And people video taped it. I told them it's better when I have a wig on and I'm singing "Weekend in the Country", but I guess they'll never really know. 

I can't wait to see my boyfriend. We're gonna take a road trip and have romantic dinners and lots of kisses.
I can't wait for Betty to move here. We're gonna get cultured here in the city. Ha.
I can't wait to see y'all in your natural habitat- school! Hopefully I'll catch a rehearsal, well part of one. 

I wanna read Eats, Shoots and Leaves. But I'm reading manly man short stories by Thom Jones right now. One book at a time. And then lots of magazines in between.

So I think I have a place in Harlem on 135th and Broadway looking over the Hudson River. And, no, Harlem isn't the crime scene it once was, it's "up and coming" like all the nabes claim to be... the apartment buidling is huge... and once it was the projects, but it's now nice and renovated. Shelley and I don't love the building, but figure the price is right, renovations are perfect, space is great, it's in the neighborhood we want, there's tons of security and maintenance on site... so why not make it a home? Here's the skyscraper I'll be living in, if we're approved...



I'll be on the 7th floor in tower B, the second from the right, yes, the tallest one... I think. It's pretty much insane. But it's not a walk up:) And I'm right down the street from Dinosaur BBQ, which is one of my fave restaurants in the city. I wish they delivered...

Tonight is girl's night. We're going to dinner and to see the Upright Citizen's Brigade (comedy show) and then probably drinks after. It'll be real nice. 

Two weeks till I'm home. I'm so ready.

*edit* Here's the couch/futon/chaise lounge Shelley and I are buying for the new place. 



I love how simple it is. Perfect for our place. And actually on the cheap side for Urban Outfitters!
