Last week I…
No idea what I’m doing? Go visit Meg and see what all the rage is about.
Baked. For the first time in so many weeks. It’s not that I havn’t wanted to but a) I want to clear my freezer out of ALL oldies before stuffing it with newbies b) I’ve been needing to put my time elsewhere and c) I am going through this weird non-creative phase of anything to do with cooking or baking. I havn’t felt an excitement or craving for a long time now. Hmm 🙁
I saw a new dietician, as per my nurse’s request. Mer. No comment as of now.
I had a successful date with my planner and was able to book in a dentist appointment, another nutritionist appointment, a bone density scan and an appointment with my therapist in the upcoming weeks.
I learned and practiced numerous pages of sides for a sci-fi film audition, which then ended up lasting all of 2 minutes. Typicaaallllll.
But the audition did take me to an area of the city I don’t see often, so I spent time having a picnic by the lake….
And then took pictures of flowers and pretty scenery. A little activity that always makes me really happy.
I had the most marvelous 2 hour long coffee date with a friend, on our first real summer day of the year. Got to a new cafe with the most incredible muffins and patio. Sunshine + kale feta muffins = happy.
I started and spent a lot of time with Mr. King Lear. Which also meant spending some good time with Mr. Sunshine. It’s a slight embarrassment that I had never read the play all the way through until now.
Got to another “on the list” coffeeshop which is basically a sanctuary of everything I envision my personal heaven to be. Jungle vibes, hippy couches, rustic tables, cracked open windows with warm breezes. Even its “pearly gates” had to be jiggled and kicked to open. It’s also an all fair trade and organic roastery so I’d like to be its best friend, please.
I did much better at replying to comments.
I had a second audition, which in the above mentioned post I told you that I was given the part :).
Had my first singing lesson with a new teacher!! So excited. I’m going to see her weekly even though I 100% can’t afford it.
Also put together and sent an 11 minute self tape audition. Oie.
I cleaned my shower. Um….. oh my god…
I did my laundry and cleared my fridge of all sorts of random leftovers, making for a tonne of very strange – albeit always delicious – meals. Also bottled up three new bottles of kombucha.
After a few days of feeling pretty uncomfortable, mentally and physically, I used all of my day’s worth of tips to go get a 60 minute shiatsu massage in China Town. …. those women miss nothing. NOTHING.
Lesson from the week: I didn’t like how much time I spent back on technology this week or how I “wasted away” many of my evenings. I saw why I was doing it and saw the return of anxiety to prove it. I’ve reverted back to always wanting a to do list, yet I havn’t been practicing the focus or discipline to actually do what is on my list.
Goal for this coming week: Better focus. Put more dedicated time into things without distraction and be a bit more forceful with myself to push past the discomfort of alone time. Meaning take out my book, paint, or do things like work on the monologues I’ve been wanting to get to when discomfort wants me to take out my phone instead.New coffeeshops, auditions and taking pretty pictures.
