  FEELING:  Busy! As soon as I got a new gig, things picked up at my regular job, which meant double the work! I’ve basically gone from zero to a million. I’m so glad I write and schedule my blog posts, like, 3 weeks in advance!! . WATCHING: My latest “noise in the background”[…]

  FEELING:  Drained. Drained! I started this month with unbearable allergies. Taking Lexapro, an SSRI, for depression/anxiety. A painful colposcopy and biopsy. The bizarre balance between feeling better due to meds and yet more anxious due to my health scare has been DRAINING! Luckily, the biopsy came back negative!!! But I basically[…]

  FEELING:  Ugh. I am going. through. it. I noticed myself starting to go downhill last month, so I scheduled an appointment to see my general practitioner (primary care provider?) and instead saw a new doctor at my usual clinic (whom I liked a lot more? He let me talk[…]

🎶 Don’t Stop Me Now 🎶

  I’m one of those people who thrives on being busy. If I’m allowed to rest for too long, I fall into a depression and stop taking care of myself (see: wearing the same sweatsuit and not showering for 5 days straight while living off of mayonnaise sandwiches and frozen microwave dinners).[…]

  FEELING:  Strangely reinvigorated! I was very busy, and then I wasn’t, and I’m slowly (without putting a lot of pressure on myself) getting my life together in my downtime. Going to the dentist. Touching up my roots. Washing my sheets and blankets. I have a LOT of blankets, ok,[…]

  FEELING:  Stressed and so #Blessed! I’ve been very busy at the studio this past month, and I *love* being busy! I’ve been having a lot of pain in my back and shoulders, but I made it a point to spend a day with my boyfriend at The Met and we ended[…]

  FEELING:  Well, honestly, I’ve lost the last week and a half to being very, very sick. It started with that achy feeling in my bones, then turned into a fever that lasted for about a week, and now I have this lingering very wet deep chest cough. It really does feel like[…]

FEELING:  Ahem, WordPress. Annoyed at this weird change? I legiterally have no idea what I’m doing, I just pray to sweet Satan that this post makes it out of the gates in readable format. Um, I’m okay. Feeling my grip on sanity loosen ever-so-slightly now that I’m not working regularly, and[…]

  FEELING:  Must I say it? “INCREDULOUS that the year is already over!!!” November was a hard one. Tours and work busy, then slow, then TOO BUSY. I mean, this post is 7 days late because I simply haven’t had the time, and I don’t think I took any selfies this[…]

  FEELING:  Incredulous that it’s almost the end of the year. I mean, it’s NOVEMBER! 2019 is right around the corner! Is it just me, or do the years go by faster now than they ever did before? Work has been SO BUSY the past two months! . WATCHING: I feel like I always find a[…]

Change in the Weather

  I say this ALL THE TIME. But I say it the most when the seasons change.   In New York City, it is SUMMER until the MINUTE that it is WINTER. And it is WINTER until the MINUTE that it is SUMMER.   Theydies and Gentlethem, Welcome to Winter.[…]

  FEELING:  SO OPTIMISTIC. And nostalgic, but in that “look how far I’ve come” kind of way. My life was turned completely upside-down on this day last year. Right now, I’m working two jobs that I love, living in the most fabulous apartment, dating someone who adores me and who is so easy to spend time with,[…]

  FEELING:  Purposeful. I’m pretty busy now, but I am reaping the rewards of all my hard work and I’m absolutely loving it. Things have been a little hectic and I can’t lie, Leo season was bringing PLENTY of drama and I’m kind of happy to be in nice, organized, Virgo[…]

  FEELING:  SWEATY. This summer is HOT, HOT, HOT! I mean, yeah, duh, global warming and all that. The humidity in NYC is, as it is every summer, occasionally unbearable! I saw people PUKING from heat the other day. It’s brutally intense! As a result, I’ve been mostly a homebody this[…]

  FEELING:  Overall? Secure. “SECURE,” y’all!!! Do you have any idea how significant that word is? That’s INCREDIBLE. I can’t remember the last time I felt SECURE, okay? Maybe like, 2014. I’M DEAD SERIOUS. I sought a word for how good I’m feeling, and the one that summed it up[…]

  FEELING:  Excited. Yes, excited! It sort of feels like, overall, everything has been falling into place for me lately. I’ve been working hard, saving up, keeping going. You know, six months ago, if you told me that I’d be in this place by summer, I doubt I would have believed[…]

  FEELING:  Lots better. Lots better. I had one truly amazing therapy session and also worked almost every day of the past month, and that changed a lot for me. I went from agonizing over feeling “lazy” when I wasn’t working, to realizing that there are ebbs and flows, and[…]

  FEELING:  Deep in the throes of PMS + Mercury retrograde + depression, FUN. Fun fun fun. It’s really messed me up, and the endlessly cold and grey weather doesn’t help. I’m struggling to see a light at the end of the tunnel or any hope that things will change as I feel[…]

  FEELING:  I’d like to refer you to my previous post for a longer life update! At this moment, beginning of March, I’m in PANIC MODE! The big story THIS WEEK is, I’m in a play this weekend! The Bloody Deed of 1857, brought to you by the same company[…]

  FEELING:  Well. Today — February 1st — I had a MASSIVE therapy session where I got a lot of HUGE things off my chest, and I feel, like, relieved. January was a huge roller coaster, and I was mostly going it completely alone. I feel like I’ve finally accepted that 1)[…]
