It’s been a year! That’s a song…
Oh my, it’s been far too long since I’ve written a blog post. Things have been weird for me in the last year, and I am not one to announce things without 100% certainty. Even then… I’m an introvert.
I suppose an update is way past due.
Going part-time at the law firm last spring was the beginning of so much change. I finally felt as though I were in a position to provide for myself, care for myself, and pursue my dreams. In the last year I’ve adopted the mantra “Find what feels good” (shout out to my girl, Adriene!). The last several months have been full of changes and choices that allow me to lean in to what feels good. Some results were heartbreaking while others were surprisingly alright. I suppose that’s life. I’ve since been working on finding balance, purpose, and adventure.
I decided last summer to quit my job at the law firm altogether. I took a leap of faith, praying I wouldn’t fall on my face too hard, and started working at Starbucks. It was a huge pay cut, but between the benefits and the income from my other projects, I’ve been making it work.
Due to the pay cut, I had to move. I now have a roommate and Lilly has a dogmate.
I also performed in a show for the first time in forever. I was Miss Gardner in HCT’s Carrie, which was a unique experience. I’ve served on the directing team of several shows over the last couple years, and it was really cool to be on the stage again! I was reminded of how much fun the stage can be and am looking to pursue more performance opportunities.
Lastly, I have decided to go on my own to teach lessons in April. Coming to this decision took weeks of deliberation. I suppose I’m a lil’ entrepreneur. For more information on private vocal and piano lessons, please visit the sign-up page.
Those are a just some of the big ones. I already see more changes coming around the corner. At this point, I’m not sure where I’m going, but I’m power walking.
