Thank You.

print found here.

The beginning to my year has been... rocky. Just undeniably stressful and I have a difficult time managing stress (and how I act based on it.) Between my day job, rehearals every day, shows with two different casts, teaching, writing... I've just had a difficult time not going absolutely crazy. Mainly because I don't sleep as much.

Now, this is going to sound corny (like everything I say), but the one thing that has kind of kept me together is the fact that A) I'm doing what I love and B) I'm staying true to myself. If you asked me five years ago where I'd be in five years, I would have said, "God, I don't even want to know." But I think I'm in a place now that the 20-year-old version of me would be really excited about. And I'm enjoying myself and doing what I love, and sure that comes with a price and a lot of hard work. But at the end of the day, I feel good and happy with my career. And that's wonderful.

And the B. part to that is that I feel good about the fact that every day I'm being honest with myself, and everyone else, about who I am and what I want. I'm unapologetically nerdy. This is who I am... I like to flirt, I like attention, I like having fun with my friends, I can be a total selfish bitch, I don't let people walk all over me, I only like to listen to Motown and Michael Jackson and occasionally something new and different but I always find myself back with my old favorites, I'm clumsy, I'm a fan of a drink at the end of a long day and, god damnit, I like myself. At the very least, I've got that going for me.

Being you is a good you to be. 
That's all. Carry on.
