I’m sat in the warmth of my little box room, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan enjoying my day. A slightly non conventional Christmas Day, but if we are speaking honestly, the 25th of December has definitely been overthrown by commercialism over the last couple of decades.
As cynical as this blog is beginning to sound, I am actually having a fabulously relaxed day. The winter break has been well and truly needed, and deserved. I have been able to catch up on sleep that my body has so desperately craved since October and it feels WONDERFUL (and not in the ironic It’s a Wonderful Life way!)
I’m 10 weeks into my Third Semester at AMDA, and only 5 weeks away from hitting the New York Casting rooms. To quote, “Excited and Scared” (thanks Sondheim) would definitely summarize how I feel about this. I can’t wait to get back into the world of auditions, and working, however being here in New York, my future depends on my success. If I could ask for any Christmas Gift, it would be prayers and hope from my friends and family that 2018 brings me many more chapters in this city, which my heart knows as home.
I’ll save a review of the last ten weeks for the New Years
resolution , I mean, hopes blog.
For now, wherever you are in the world, and even if you don’t celebrate this holiday, take a moment to say I Love You to your nearest and dearest and have a glass of something fun and fizzy.
