I have so much to catch you guys up on. So much has been going on...
At this point I am feeling that the office life is not for me. The last four years I have experienced so much negativity in office settings and frankly I can't take it anymore. During my most recent experience I experienced bias and I was singled out several times. It was a really weird and backwards experience. It started off well and then they flipped the script. The good news is that all of these experiences are helping me to grow and opening my eyes to what I really want out of life. And, what I really want is this... I want to perform. I want to act. I want to write novels (although I'd love to do some theater reviews every now and then also). I don't want to be stuck behind a desk pushing papers the rest of my life. Honestly, I guess I've been scared and maybe even a little lazy. I have been caught up in the mentality that I can't make a living as a performer and that it's unrealistic that I will ever get a book deal. I haven't really had anyone pushing me-my family just isn't that way. So, I have just been running along on the mouse wheel and when I got time here and there I would do the performing thing. My job (former internship) fired me. It was an unfair/unprofessional firing. But, I believe it was a sign from the universe. I believe it was God telling me to get off the wheel and go for what I really want and what I am really good at. I'm an artist and I don't think I could ever completely be happy or fit in punching a clock at 9 o'clock and 5 o'clock.
I'm a little scared because I am not sure how I am going to make my ends meet. But, I have faith that they will. Mitch Albom said it best in his book, "Have a Little Faith", and I feel the same way and that feeling is what is going to keep me going. "I am in love with hope." At this point, that is what I am holding on to.
Anyway, check me out at Shotz Bar & Grill tomorrow night in Hazel Park, MI. I am not exactly sure, but I believe the show starts at 8p.m. You can text me or go to my Facebook page to find out. As soon as I get my confirmation for the time I will update my status.
Have a good day!
P.s. I visited New York this past week and had a blast! It was one of my fave trips, ever. I am inspired. I saw FELA produced by Will & Jada Pinkett Smith. It was absolutely thrilling. Check it out if you are the NYC area anytime soon.
