Last week was a good week. Busy, but good. Like I have learned countless times before, it is truly amazing how light you feel when you are immersed in your passion. The majority of my week was centered around the three days of performance I had – which meant 12 hour days at the theatre and zero time for anything else. But boy was I so happy after each performance. It was also a week where I received a lot of help from – and connected with – friends. Just in little ways. Perhaps so small they didn’t even notice they were helping. But I noticed, and I sure did appreciate it. Those small things really can put a smile on someone’s face.
It was one of those weeks where showering and getting the dishes done at least twice felt like striking gold (a shiny sink never looked so pretty). Hennnnnce the severe lack of pictures I realized I had when starting to write this post…. sorry.
So even though my week was totally single-focused without much additional productivity – all the more reason to join Meg and pat myself on the back for checking off what I DID do!
That’s a lie. I’m incredibly and permanently nervous.
Good thing I have a lot of mugs…
Getting ready for a crazy week. Script reading happy place.
Note: Also the location of my first full caf coffee in 7 weeks. I was so excited…. and even more so after.
Random last 1/4 of a sweet potato, one lonely brussel sprout, last of my smoked tofu, last of the kale, last of my peas, edamame and sauerkraut (thank goodness not the last of this stuff). All massaged in EVOO, ACV, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Mwah!
Which involved my first cauliflower mash that actually STAYED WHITE, my new favorite make shift BBQ beans (so cheap, so easy) and some experimental WOK fun.
Meal Prep: Tuna salad made with 2% greek yogurt and avocado, baked sweet potatoes, fried eggs, broccoli, cauliflower mash, BBQ beans
Holy can you say cheap proteins week? #onabudget
Kidney Beans (any bean of choice) mixed with diced tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, onion, worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, cumin, chili, paprika, stevia
Soba noodle peanut stir fry (carrots/broccolli/pepper/onion/garlic/tofu/edamame/peas + peanut/ginger sauce)

Next week is going to be far more insane than this past one. I am in my last week and a half of my conservatory season, and although I thought I’d be pretty “free and easy” once this last performance was over – I was completely in the wrong. I have more small performances, evaluations and exams crammed in this next week than I have had all year. I’ll basically be living in the studio – and probably not getting much sleep. Its a good thing this is my happy place (but pass me the wine when its over, k?).
Have a wonderful week, friends.
Do you find you clean more when you are busy?
When’s the last time you felt permanently nervous?
Anyone else hate cleaning out tea balls?
