Gypsy to Drowsy!

May 18, 2010 - New York, New York, United States

Hello Everyone!

I literally haven't updated this site in months!  I believe my last journal entry was about Anything Goes.  So much has happened since! Aiy Aiy Aiy!

After Anything Goes, I went home for almost exactly one month.  I then left to head back to Arizona on December 18th and I was out in Arizona until February 21st doing Gypsy.  I was very lucky though, I got to fly home for Christmas, so I was very fortunate and glad to spend the holidays with my family.

I had a great time with Gypsy.  It's a small show, not a huge ensemble cast, and not much for the ensemble to do.  So I had alot of down time.  Arizona was again was beautiful, although not as warm as before.  So I really couldn't lay out by the pool very much.  But I did have alot of free time to hit up the gym.

Also, this second time around I organized another volunteer trip to an after school program in Phoenix.  4 of us went and we spent about 2 hours with the kids, talking with them, and playing games with them.  We had a great time and I think the kids really enjoyed it.

I had a hard time saying goodbye this time, because with Anything Goes, I knew that I would be coming back.  However, with Gypsy closing, I had no idea when my return to Arizona would be.  But I was very excited and eager to get back to the city and audition.  Feb-April is a great time to be in the city, because there are always many auditions to go to.

I then made it back to the city and have been here ever since.  I did go home for one week for my sisters wedding.  The wedding was so much fun!  A few of my best friends were able to make it as well.  But the whole day was just so perfect. Even the weather was amazing.  Me and my friend Ashley actually sang in the ceremony.  I was so glad I was able to be a part of my sisters special day.  I am so proud of her. I still to this day think of how wonderful she is and how great she is doing!!!

Anyways, New York has been great.  I have gone to many auditions.  Have gotten great feedback.  Luckily I did book another gig.  I am actually leaving next week to head down to Florida.  I will be performing in the The Drowsy Chaperone.  I have done the show before, and was in the ensemble.  This time around I will be playing one of the supporting leads.  So I am very excited.  I will get to do a little tap dance in the show which should be fun.

I can't believe I will be in Florida for two whole months.  I am kind of really excited.  Because if you know me, you know that I like that sun! :0)

A few days ago I recently participated in the AIDS Walk here in NY.  I set a goal of raising $500.00 and guess what!! I did!  I actually raised $525.00.  I am so proud, and so grateful.  Thank you to everyone who donated.  The walk was on Sunday and it was a 10k.  The weather was beautiful.  I think in total the walk raised over 5.7 million dollars.

Since I have had alot of free time here in the city, I also have been volunteering alot in the evenings.  For the past month or so I have been going down to volunteer for the AIDS Walk.  I usually would go in for about 2 hours a night Mon-Thurs.  I met some new wonderful people. So that was alot of fun getting involved with that.

That's really it!  I mean, there has been some other stuff to, but that is a good outline of what has happened since Anything Goes.  I will try to be better with uploading entries again when I get down to Florida. I also have another job offer on the table which I am currently under negotiations with. Once I know some more details, I will share that information here with all of you! :0)

Take good care and I hope everyone has a wonderful summer!

God bless,
