I’m a little slow on the uptake here, but slowpokegonzales tagged me for a lovely survey and now I will actually fill it in and post it.

10 years ago I was
Starting my first semester at my Community College, working at a flower shop, and trying to figure out just what the hell was going on.

5 years ago I was
Just out of college and getting ready for my first US tour. I was still living with my parents and trying to figure out how to live and still work in theater. I’m still learning that lesson. I spent my days in a costume shop and my evenings with some new friends. I also started kickboxing around this time, if I remember correctly.

1 year ago I was
Still at the job I am now, starting my first show with the High School and trying to fit it in with the Other Theater that has the crazy new Artistic Director. I was working a few nights a month at the Concert Venue and trying not to go crazy even though I was never home, eating crap, and never seeing my friends. Not really a happy time in my life, though a relatively lucrative one. I even worked fourteen hours on my birthday that year. Yeah.

Yesterday I was
Working at the day job then having dinner with a girl I became friends with in high school and then ended up in college with. We only see each other maybe once a year, but when we do it is like we were apart for maybe a week. It is a really great, comfortable friendship. Good evening.
