It's been quite a while since I've last posted and a lot of things have happend...

Got a job and have been doing that. It's been good and enjoying the experience. My co-workers are great and I just enjoy the atmosphere of it.

Did some more photography, though it was family related, but it was nice to get my Nikon D5000 out again. Though I feel a little rusty with all the different scenery around my area and need to rediscover places, so I can feel inspired again by all of it. I have found some really cool places that I definitely want to photograph and there are some places I want/have revisited that are just fun to photograph.

I have been hanging out with one of my many extended family's houses....I'm pretty much their adopted child and I'm ok with that. I love having friends that I can also have a great relationship with their family. I know at least I'm not a bad influence to my friends in their parents eyes...right!??! hahahahaha Anyways been hanging out there, when I'm not working or not sleeping...

I've noticed that I really like to be reserved. Granted being a theatre person, you'd think I be this crazy and partying person. This past month, I've enjoyed being home or with close friends. But don't get me wrong I love being in social settings, that's why I have my job...hahhaha I definitely feel I'm more of a person who'd rather be invited to events than have to plan them and hope people will show up. This might sound conceited but I'm really not trying to sound like it. I've had many times in my life where I've planned things and they haven't gone well...But I've also planned things and they've gone well...so I guess it's a hit and miss...or maybe some self confidence...

Speaking of self-confidence, I definitely got a positive boost, when I was called back for an interview for a job that works in my related field...theatre....and had played to my strengths of leadership abilities and event planning. Just being called back for the interview was more than a blessing, learning and humbling experience. Especially getting one just getting out of college. I was freaking out, but in a good way. It was something I wanted and would like to do. Unfortunately they went with someone else. But I'm ok because there was a silver lining because I got feedback about my interviewed and would keep me in mind for future opportunities. So who could say this was a bad experience!?!??! The employer said my interview was good and really saw potential in me, but just went for the person who was more suited for the position. However keeping me in mind for another in their company....WOW! So this experience was great and my job hunt continues.

But thinking of my interview and just debriefing it with friends I'm doing some deep thinking of what do I want to do with my life. I love theatre and I would love the opportunity to do film, stage, voice over anything with opportunity to perform. But I do also have a passion for leadership, education and being creative. So just trying to really hone in what I want to do has just been difficult, but it's life right?!

Anyways, I'm really excited for next week because I'll be spending six amazing days being around theatre. I've been given the amazing opportunity to go for my NINTH year to the International Thespian Festival, which is being held at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, NE. I'll be the House Manager for the Johnny Carson Theatre which will showcase shows from High Schools for Chapter Select Showcases or Freestyle Theatre. I also will have the amazing opportunity to be the stage manager running the auditions for the Thespian Playworks which features four aspiring playwrights as well as  The Welkin, by Dominic Orland. So I'm really excited!

I think this is a good place to stop. I'll definitely be blogging during the week of ThespianFest11! I even get to see some amazing people! As well as one of my best friends!
