I found this half-written post from the beginning of the year and thought I'd share it... this is proof that I've at least attempted to blog in the last several months, even if I never got around to publishing anything:
January 5, 2012
Time is cruising faster and faster, and I'm having a hard time keeping up. New classes already? I'm not complaining. I love new things. I am becoming a fanatic of change--something I never ever thought I'd be able to say.
Lately I have a new appreciation for smiles and waves and simple "hellos". I never realized what a huge difference it makes in my day when someone reciprocates a little hint of happiness; it's a rare occasion, especially on a cold day. However, for whatever reason, I've been meeting cheery person after cheery person the last two days. Cheers for the cheery, please! Thank you for the smiles.
Big news: McCaye is pregnant. And not only is she pregnant, she is double pregnant. TWINS ON THE WAY!! I can hardly wait until summer to help nanny the little angels! So excited. Double excited, because this is twice as exciting as anything else.
I am officially leaving for London on April 24th. Packing up and exploring for six weeks straight. We'll be attending at least 20 plays, taking a Shakespeare and British Theatre class, spending a week in Rome, and SHOPPING. Yes. One more thing to look forward to! I may be spending the next ten years trying to pay it back, but heck. Who cares. I'M GOING TO LONDON.
The last little while, I've become obsessed with jazz music. I've experimented with singing just about every genre, from classical to opera to country to pop to religious to R&B to... whatever! But I feel like this genre, this very last style which I'm about to explore, has something in store for me. I don't know what, and I don't know when, but I'm sure excited to figure it out. Upward and onward! I love jazz because it's pure class. Maybe this will be a permanent change, and a permanent love. There don't seem to be all that many permanents lately, so I'm crossing my fingers that this one will stay.
I'm changing. Life is changing. I really do love trying to keep up with everything and trying to figure myself out along the way. If it were easy and if I could stay on top of it all, I'm positive I'd go mad out of boredom. I'm enjoying the ride and looking forward to feeling completely different about everything I've just said within a day or two. Things change fast around here. :)
