I'm starting off with the hunch that today's post is going to be a bit rambly. But it all makes sense, at least in my head. So bare with me.
So this summer has been a bit chaotic. At least emotionally, if that's okay for me to say. It's hard to even explain, except to say this summer has just been weird, and definitely the hardest of my life. I'm not trying to sound angsty, its just been hard. And every time I thought things were going to get settled, they went and upheaved themselves all over again, and then I freaked out some more. Now, I can finally and safely say (fingers crossed) that I am seeing the caboose of the crazy train. Everything still not fully settled is at least somewhat in place, and in a way that just takes time to grow roots. If that makes sense.
There is finally some semblance of a schedule returning to my life. I do social media contracting stuff in the mornings, teach in the afternoons, and then I have after school to do stuff like write, and read, and write, and go to the gym, and watch stuff, and write. Which is fabulous, because I think I've actually written words every day for the past week or so. And it doesn't look like that's going to stop, which is double fabulous.
Now I want to be in a play. There are lots of reasons for this, other than the obvious one that I plain love (SERIOUSLY I LOVE IT SO MUCH) theater. Like the fact that I can't sit still, combined with what I guess you could call an inertia problem, which means that when I do sit still it often takes outside energy to get me moving again, and being in a play is a good outside energy source. Also, since my work entails lots of people who are small children, it would maybe be nice to do things at other times that involve people who are not small children, at least on the outside. (Don't get me wrong, I freaking adore small children, but a range is good, right?). Also, I like to meet new people. Also, its creatively inspiring. Also, I try and take advantage of getting out and doing things that I actually enjoy that are not school and my computer, because that doesn't happen often, and when it does its good for me. For all those other reasons. And its been a year and a half, and that's just too long. So yeah, I'm putting it out there that I'm ready to be in a play again. We'll see what happens.
I guess this is just an extension of yesterdays post, just applied to every day life. What are your favorite...extra-curriculars, I guess you could say? What do you do to spice things up and put yourself out there? Where do you go for that zing of freshness? Clubs? Sports? Outdoors? Hobbies? Tell me, oh wise readers.
