In Flight Recap

After my Oscars predictions, I pretty much fell off the from blogging, not because I didn't want to, but because I just didn't. But I'll try and recap what has happened since then...

March: 

My Grandlittle and very good friend came to visit as well as perform in his senior showcase in NYC. It was great to see him and know that I'll have another friend coming to the city! We also caught "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder," which is nominated for 10 awards! Fun fact a former professor is a part of the talented group and it's great to see this show doing well. If you get the chance to see it, you should!


While my GrandLittle was visiting, a friend from Michigan was also in town for a conference and I was able to catch up with her.

I also auditioned for a Broadway show that featured a hip hop dance audition, which was interesting because the musical typically doesn't have hip hop in it. The audition was so much fun and it got me really addicted to the song they used for the piece.

Since I attended nine of the same theatre festival, I have made countless friends and I had the great opportunity to catch up with a one of them. It had been over seven years since we last met up.

April:

On the 1st of April, which is also known as April Fools, I entered the Book of Mormon lottery for NY residents, to win discounted tickets for the following day's performance. To my luck I had won, which I thought was first a prank, but turned out to be a great surprise! I was able to go and bring a friend to the show. It was also my friend's first Broadway musical and they and definitely enjoyed it!



I decided on a whim to go and visit my friend in DC to see the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was my first time in DC and I had a great time! I even got to catch up with my Senior RA from my first year at my university as well as another friend. 

For Easter I was able to spend some time with family and meet some new relatives in the same process. With work my schedule, I now have the weekend off, so I was able to catch up with family and friends who normally work a 9-5/Mon-Friday job. 

Went to the New York International Auto Show with some co-workers from work. I had mentioned to some that I really wanted to go and it would be my first time going in the City. I have gone to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, but wanted to see what NY had to offer. There were definitely some similarities as well as differences. Also was a great opportunity to hang out with co-workers outside of work and make new friends!

That's pretty much what has been happening, it doesn't seem like much but after writing it all down, I can say I've kept myself busy and look forward to this month as well as what the rest of the year brings.

Oh and I also started the process of straightening my teeth, meaning I got braces. I have overcrowding in my teeth as well as an interesting bite. So I finally made the decision to get them fixed. Definitely worth the investment and luckily I'll have them off in two years. Though definitely changes the types of roles I'll go for, but again will be worth it in the long run. I'm thankful to have a job that has a good dental plan and I'm able to make this investment affordable.

I'm currently on my way back to my Alma Mater to wish one of my Little, GrandLittle, fraternity brothers and friends the best as they graduate today and tomorrow! 

(Hopefully I'll be able to add more pictures later)

May is already half way over

So I've got a lot to write and of course, I'm doing it late at night...lol

Anyways...

Graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with my Theatre Arts degree! It has been such an amazing ride these past three years. There have been plenty of ups and downs but through it all I've maintained some good friends and lifelong memories!

------------

Final days in Greeley, CO have been bittersweet! It was good to say my farewells to everyone but I know it wasn't a goodbye. Just an extended see you later. Plus I'm going to be back in Greeley in November for my fraternity's chartering! So I'll be seeing a lot of faces again in a few months.

But I had to pack up my room and let me tell you, I've accumulated a lot of things the three years I've been here. Plus all my clothes I brought with me. I donated A BUNCH of stuff and I know it's all going to good causes and besides I know I had stuff handed down to me so I'm just paying it forward.

--------------

I finally got rid of my brick phone! For those of you who don't know, I've had the old school/cheapest cell phone anyone could really have and I've upgraded to an HTC Hero (or a T-mobile MyTouch)! It's been great having a droid phone, however it's definitely making my Ipod Touch seem useless. But thankfully my IPod Touch will now just be for music and Angry Birds (I blame my fraternity brothers).

---------------

Since Graduating and packing up, I have had the distinct pleasure of moving back home. But let me tell you I feel like a guest in my own home. However this is just a minor setback to the ultimate goal...Los Angeles. The plan....work, A LOT and save up/pay some debt and catch up with some great friends I've got back here! Plus it's been pretty much two years since I've been back in Michigan, and things have definitely changed.

All in all, I'm living, learning and loving life!

I'll blog more soon! And not be in hiatus for so long...lol
