There have been so many changes to my life since I've last posted, some I'd prefer to keep personal but they include everything from health, to job, to relationship status, to residence, you name it.....
Lets just say after a number of years being unhappy, I finally found the courage to make some changes in my life and although it scares me some, I am better off for it. Never let anyone tell you that you can't.... too easy to prove them wrong.
Something I came across that I thought you'd all enjoy. Even though it's referring to women over 40 I think we all rock no matter how old or young we are!
Andy Rooney says:
As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are
just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to
ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn
Well anyone who knows me knows how I dread winter; just hate it. The summer we had this past year was spectacular, something we hadn't seen in several years and I loved every moment of it. I started sitting out in the sun in mid April tanning my goose bumps but I didn't care as the winter before was so snowy and cold. We were so lucky to see the snow recede as early as it did and I for one was not going to miss a single day of sunshine basking in it's warmth and radiance.
This brings me ba
Well yesterday I went on my first wine tour with a group of friends. We were 18 women with a 40 year span between youngest/oldest, yet we all still had many things in common amoung us. We rented a limo/bus to take us around so we didn't have to worry about driving/parking and could really enjoy ourselves. Everyone brought a dish to pass and we feasted in between our tastings. Each winery had a different way of directing their tastings. Almost all had a fee between $1 and $3 for the tastings
It has been the most amazing 24 hours in that I have had the oppertunity to hear/speak to/from about 6 people that I haven't had the chance to in many months. I'm just totally in awe over it and so very thankful that everyone is great . I love my friends !
I was told not to worry about it for now as the chances of it happening so soon were nill but pfft, it happened! That's what I get for listening to a man! On Wednesday morning I awoke at 6am to turn on my screen and see a message to restart my computer. There was an uneasy feeling about it as I turned the power off but there was no other choice but to.....so I did. Little did I know that it meant everything that was ever on my computer, every e-mail, e-mail address, file. photo, graphic, son
Well Country Fair Days are behind me again for another year, thank goodness as it is always a fun but exhausting event. Attendance was down from previous years but some of that might have been attributed to the weather. Saturday started out chilly, cloudy and windy but quickly heated up with the abundance of sun, followed by some of the heaviest downpours all within a 7 hour time period ! The one bad thing, not everyone anchored their tents, so some tried to go flying off. This is not s
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do. Some of you will be more willing then others to put your thought or ideas in here but I love it, makes you feel good when someone takes the time to read about you and the events you choose to share. My blog will contain random things from events in my life, public and personal (very personal at times) to updates on what I'm working on or future ideas for the board. I already have 2 active blogs but have not updated them as recent as I should. If you
All I can say is I'm so exhausted but thrilled at the same time. I can not believe how fast this is going by, just finished another 3 performances, only 2 more left coming up this Friday and Saturday. I've updated my last entry with pictures, you can see it Here if you've missed it . Saturday night will be our last performance and I have decided to host the cast/wrap party which will take place after we clean up the popcorn after the show. In other words it will start about midnight and go
Well last night was a good rehearsal, went from 7 till almost 10. We went over 3 different scenes and made some minor adjustments. It's really something to see how it's all pulling together and everyone really seems to be getting into their characters now. I found out that on Monday, it will be a full cast rehearsal and someone will be there to take publicity photos as well as cast head shots . What this means is we all have to pull together some type of costume and be dressed for the photo
First please forgive any typos as I have had 4 hrs sleep in since Tues night with a very light 3 hrs in-between.
What can I say, so far I'm having a great time although I am dead tired. I arrived yesterday at my hotel at 11 am their time (6am our) and I didn't sleep last night (I tried ) . I had walked all over the area yesterday and ended up last night at Harrodsâ€™s visiting Father Christmas (yes, I took my photo with him) and today I was all over London literally. I visited the D
Well I found out I need to be there at 12:30pm , hmm was really hoping for first thing in the morning as I am not allowed anything by mouth after midnight but I'll have time to lounge around in the morning waiting around grrr. I have everything done at home that needed to be done, more or less so now I'm just waiting. This is going to be a long night but nowhere as long as my morning will be
OK, it's now 10:16 and I'm going stir crazy as I don't know what to do with mys
Well on Monday evening, I went to meet the cast of the play. We read through the entire thing and I'll have to say that I'm really starting to look forward to this, it will be quite funny . Now as for me, as of Monday night, I had zero in the way of lines, lol. All I knew was that I'd be playing a saloon girl and that things will come in time. I had to attend a blocking rehersal last night for the first and last scenes. I now have a name and several lines. My name is Tinsel , will have
Well Saturday night was our final performance and it was great. I couldn't help but to feel excited knowing that it would be the best yet as everyone was ready to give it their all. At the same time there is also that feeling of sadness, that we would not be together anymore, everything was coming to an end. We have spent so many hours together and even though we're exhausted, we ran on pure adrenaline and motivated eachother with a renewed excitement each performance. To say this was an awe
I went to the audition last night for the play. There were 7 of us there auditioning and 3 people to listen to us read, one being the director. I have never done this before and I felt a little out of place as I was the only first timer there . I also found out after I was the only one looking at the script for the first time as the others had known about this audition for at least a week if not longer and had received copies ahead of time . I had no clue before Saturday night that it w
A Special Message To My Members!
On Friday August 11th, STCT will be celebrating our second birthday/anniversary! Wow, I can not believe how fast the time has gone and how much we've grown. We still are "technically" considered a small forum because of our number of members, but what members we have. Our content and post count far exceed forums many times our size.
I love that we are a smaller board as it allows us to be more personal/friendly with each other. We'
For staters: Happy New Year to All Who Read My Blog! :buddies:
What can I say, this past year has been a real rollercoaster for me. I have been through a few bumps, received some bruises and had some great times, had new experiences and met some new people as well. Not all have been pleasant, some have been scary and others amazing experiences that I will never ever forget. I can't get into details, sorry but if you are a close friend of mine, you'll know what I'm talking about
I know I hadn't updated for a bit but the play officially opens tonight, with last night being a final dress rehearsal in front of an audience
All went well and I'm really looking forward to tonight. I did manage a few pictures, hoping to get some more tonight as everyone was so tired yesterday, myself included. The pictures I have are from set build last Sunday as well as myself with our director and other characters from the show.
Well 3 of 8 performances are done already, I'm surprised how fast it's going and yet so glad that we have a few very much needed days off . I love this experience but am totally exhausted, probably due to all the adrenalin we build up and expend each night. Friday's show was an extremly small audience, almost disappointing in a way but last night we sold the show out including a few extra chairs that they decided to add at the last minute in one of the ailses. It was amazing as you draw so m
Well I can't help but to keep thinking about what happened to me the other weekend, not sure how I should feel about this. I was working at the store and this guy comes in with his girlfriend/wife, not sure. He's about 30 give or take a couple and as his gf/wife is looking at items in the store he approaches me. He says is your name Susan? I answer yes, he continues Susan (insert my last name here)? He continues "You don't remember me do you, my name is Lance (insert his last name) I manage
Well yesterday after I helped someone figure out their brand new lap top (loading different programs and stuff) I was just down the road from the mall so I decided to stop on in to see what kind of "Sales" were actually going on. I was amazed to see that JC Penney had multiple rounders full of clothing marked down to $4.77 an item , I had a good time going through them. I found a pretty blouse, 2 skirts, a sweater thats designed like a blazer (originally priced at $72) and 3 lingerie items f
Okay so today's episode of set building/tech practice ended early but was still productive. What we did today was decided on who was going to be taking on or off what from the stage as well as who was going to be closing and reopening the curtains when. I've taken a couple of more shots of the stage so here is what the set will essentially look like
Sorry I have not updated in awhile. The fair that the town puts on is now behind me and I'm happy to say it's over. I was so tired after that 11 hour day, too much really. It is not a favorite event of mine and after working it a few years now, I can really say that I have learned to dislike fairs. I never attend any, I've lost interest in them.
I received an e-mail about 2 weeks ago asking if I'd consider taking a small part in a play, which I agreed to do. It's going to take plac
Another anniversary is here to remind us all of a harsh tragedy that happened 4 years ago. The World Trade Center was my favorite place. Whenever I flew home the plane would always fly by it or if I was driving I'd see it from New Jersey, either way I knew that I was almost home. It was always a comfort when it was within sight and at the same time brought a feeling of excitement.
I guess that being a New York City girl, I will always have a bond with this big amazing
