#AboutLastNight (Thanksgiving Edition)

Standard

I love the holidays because it allows you the chance to recognize your blessings. The time to reflect on all that has happened over the last year, and who was with you, to hold your hand, cheer you on, and make you laugh along the way. I was not able to spend Thanksgiving with my blood relatives this year, but spending it with my New York “framily” was just as sweet. Thankful to have friends who gladly opened their door to guests this year. The food was AH-mazing, but the fellowship with old and new friends alike was great! Thanksgiving, once again, opened my eyes to all that has shaped me this year, and it has not been too shabby.

Ciao 🙂

November?!

Standard

Am I the only person that finds it hard to believe that we have already reached the downward slope of 2013? Meaning it’s November (11th for that matter, Veteran’s Day for another) and that Christmas trees, ice skating rinks, holiday pop up shops, and layaway options for electronics, clothes, toys and furniture are now rampant from television screens to scaffolding to lobby displays in Midtown and beyond?

Seems kind of fast doesn’t it? Especially since it’s not even Thanksgiving yet (which I’m pretty sure all retailers, sans Macy’s, have forgotten exists).

I gotta say that last week, was busy in one way and extremely mellow in another. Meaning that I was trying to find stable footing after the closing of Ivanov but was unable to with Halloween festivities, travel to Atlantic City and trying to figure out what November means for me in terms of personal goals and themes.

Let’s just say that I’m still trying to catch my breath, but it’s nice to be in a flurry of activity. Getting back in the audition room, spending time with new friends, watching my Ivanov fam kick butt in their French Existentialist plays, finally catching up with my brother on the phone, helping vote in a new Mayor for New York City,  attending an Ivy League football game (woof), and watching my Saints stomp on the Cowboys last night, I got a lot done I think.

Well the words are out, so look for picture posts today and tomorrow that will catch you up to all that was described here. Whooo.

O November, the season of reunion, family, football, and re connections. Can’t believe you’re here already, and almost halfway over at that, as always I’m curious to see what this month will bring.

Ciao

Memorial Day Weekend (part one)

Standard

What I find interesting about my current lifestyle is that when holidays come around it’s  not a really big deal, because I have days off and work nights. So when I realized kind of suddenly that Memorial Day was around the corner I honestly didn’t really know what to make of it. All I did know was that I was gonna have dinner at my friend’s apartment that would be a night filled with laughs, good food, and good wine. After waiting in the ridiculously cold wind and rain for the bus, and schlepping ten more blocks because the other bus didn’t come, I made it to Bloo’s house. Let me tell ya, you know those people you see out at restaurants or on the street who are hootin’ and hollerin’, having the best time and don’t care who sees it? That’s what it’s like when me, Bloo, Nia and Jassmine get together but we tend to do it in more private settings so as not to make others feel left out. I love those three so much and Obama brought us together (the show, not the actual POTUS).
