Me! Well, yesterday, that is.
I guess you could say I’ve been in a bit of a slump lately – not sure if I’m becoming a jaded New Yorker, or if it’s just the extreme humidity affecting my perception of fun.
Either way, all that flew out the window yesterday as I had THE BEST DAY EVER. Nothing particularly fun happened – I went about my ways as any other day, including a full eight hours of work and another performance of the production I’m in, but for whatever reason, the stars aligned and I smiled.
It started off with a great workout – a great way to start a great day. Follow that with a fresh berry smoothie and a productive day of work. When I got home, I received an email asking me to audition for a new musical called “Nudists in Love” (my audition is this Saturday.) Took a midday break to get frozen yogurt with Brian (two for the price of one AND free sprinkles) and discussed with him our plans for apartment living, post-August. Came home and was informed by fellow UCB-er, Sydney, that new classes had been posted online for the next course in our series of improv education. Minutes later, while on the phone with my Mom, she got a call on the other line and found out that her recent biopsy showed the irregularity in her breast was benign (BEST PART OF MY DAY!) About an hour later, I was called by the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, letting me know that I was chosen as a new intern starting next week and they would refund me the $325 I just spent on an upcoming Sketch Writing class. Had a late lunch/early dinner of the infamous dish in my family: “Fish in Foil,” then headed to the Hell’s Kitchen area for another performance of my show. Had a GREAT performance, with a wonderfully receptive audience (including some friends: Maureen, Angie, and Ilya – thanks for coming!), then finished up my day with a lovely margarita-esque beverage with Ilya after the show. Walking back to the subway, I received a phone call asking me to audition for ANOTHER musical, “Central Park,” sometime this weekend. After getting back home, I spoke with my Mom, who let me know she purchased a mandoline and food processor for me. Umm…. hello?! Am I in an alternate universe folks? Freaking BEST DAY EVER.
