… for the weekend, that is.
What a beautiful spring we’re enjoying here! New York City has truly transformed into a bright and blossoming landscape. Last Thursday evening offered temperatures in the seventies that put most New Yorkers outside, enjoying the first glimpse of warmer times ahead. I know I’ve said this many times before, but I just love that New Yorkers never take a beautiful day for granted. If the sun is peeking through the clouds, or temperatures reflect the slightest imitation of summer – Yankees are out and about, enjoying the day. I had a lovely weekend: improv show on Friday, a trip to the Union Square Greenmarket, some spring cleaning, a night out with friends, lots of cooking, and a Woody Allen film to finish it up. Not bad!
And in other news… I thought I would share with you some [exciting] news in my life. Last week, I attended an open call for the National Tour of Spelling Bee (the musical). That day, I was asked to come back for a second audition the following day, and yesterday was informed that they would like me to audition in front of the producer and director for a third, and final, audition. I thought about writing on this experience last week, to keep you in tune with my “attempts at Broadway,” but I was too superstitious and couldn’t risk jinxing my chances. The last audition is next Monday, a week from tomorrow, so I have some time to physically and mentally prepare myself. I felt a little jilted at Tuesday’s callback… nervous and insecure. After realizing that my anxiety affected my performance, I firmly decided to be completely prepared for next week’s audition. I’m looking forward to showing them my improv skills, as they are a big part of the audition (one of the only musicals that incorporates improv)! I’ll update accordingly, I promise.
Okay, I’m exhausted and need to get in bed. Oh look, it’s 12:49 AM. Happy Monday.
