Chasing the Dream...Day 431

UPCOMING SHOWS: I will be performing at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle this upcoming Wednesday 6/2/10 at 8pm in Royal Oak, MI. I also have a show this Thursday, 6/3/10 at Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase in Ann Arbor, MI at 8pm.

I have so much to share with guys! Last Sunday, May 23, 2010 we closed HAIR at Birmingham Village Players. It was the most amazing creative experience of my entire life. The familial environment, the content of the show and the reception from the audience was a dream. It was more than I could've ever wished, hoped or dreamed for. I feel like I have made friends for life. We all share a bond that is impossible for me to describe in this blog. I am so happy and I feel so blessed to have had the experience. It was a beautiful experience. The last day we all weeped and hugged and reminisced. It was so powerful! I am such a blessed girl!

On Thursday 5/20 I was in a comedy contest at Andiamo Novi in Novi, MI. I came in second place. I didn't win but it felt amazing because the guy who won is a REALLY funny guy and it felt good to be in his company and to come in second to him was so awesome! The guy who organizes the show invited me back and told me I did a good job. It was really cool having that experience as well.

I am on such a creative high even still. I have to say that being fired 6 months ago was the best thing that could've ever happened to me. I have had the time, energy and inspiration these past few months to focus on and participate in shows and experiences that I might not have otherwise had. It's so cool! I really believe that my firing was divine intervention to help me realize where my talents lie and help me focus on what really matters. I think I had been somewhat afraid to pursue my passions. I am not anymore! How amazing this year has been?!! I've attended so many auditions, Greenfield Village, U of D Mercy, Performance Network, Waterworks Theater, etc. etc. I may not have gotten all the parts I have auditioned for but it has been a dream for me to go and see all the people in this community who share the same passion I do and for me to know that it is possible for me to do what I love in a town like Detroit.

I am so encouraged and happy right now and I can't wait to see where the next 6 months takes me.

Thanks for reading guys! I appreciate your support so much :)
