I am working full time at a company in Hudson NH called National Granite which is a place that install granite counter tops. My first week there is in the books and I couldn;t be more happy. This what I have been waiting and working so hard for almost two years. I will be working at the Y on weekends at least until the Holidays are over and then I will focus on this new job. I am so excited!!
On the sadder side of things my grandmother lost her batttle with Alzhimer's on Sept 10th. Needless to say it was a rough month of Septembr I miss her dearly but know she is watching over me.
Got into the Holiday Show at the Amato Ctr and had my first rehearsal Wednesday. Excited to be in the Christmas play. This year we are doing two one act plays. I am a teacher in one and one of the 3 wisemen the the other. I am also doing sound design for the PTA play this yeats. CATS just wasn't my show so I decided to work backstage instead.
Life is good! Very good.
Another year.. another birthday. I am officially in the last year of my 20s! OMG!
Most of my celebrating was done last week. On the 19th I had a party with my friends. We basically just hung out. It was a Broadway themed movie night so we did musical trivia and watched Chicago. On the 20th I went out to dinner with my parents and sister at Stella Blu. It was a combined celebration as my sister left for her internship in Alaska. I am going to miss her a lot while she is gone. Last weekend Matt and I went to Massachuetts to go to the Cummington Fair. It was our first time going and it was a lot of fun. Monday we went mini golfing at Poneham Green and walking in Amherst Village and then to my parents house for dinner. Yesterday was my actual birthday and it was not very exciting because I mostly did paperwork that I need to send into Gateways and then worked. Matt and I watched a movie last night called The Big Wheel. Didn't really care for it too much to be honest. I have also been reading a lot lately. I have read about 5 or 6 books in the past month. The most recent book I completed was Silver Linings Playbook which is the book the Oscar nominated movie with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper was based on. It was really good. Highly recommended!
My job search is ongoing but I am hoping to get a job at the Nashua Center that is part time. I will also be getting some more hours at the Y starting within the next week.
My grandmother's health continues to decline. I get sadder and sadder each time I visit her in the nursing home. I really hope is that she doesn't have to suffer too much longer.
I had a play audition for Young Frankenstien with Actorsingers on August 10th. Did not get in but I am planning to help out with publicity. Was going to work backtage but decided I would much rather see the show instead.
Working backstage for Passion For Dracula at the Amato Center in Mid-October. My friend Kevin is directing it. It should be a fun show!
I am finally joining Souhegan Valley Chorus. So excited! Schedule has been my main issue with joining in the past but I am going to be working in the early part of the afternoon on Tuesdays. I am doing the YMCA Choir at least for the first two of three weeks of the semester and if I determine it is too much for my schedule I will drop out.
My mom is writing a book about my disabilities and I am going on tour with her in January to help her promote it. I am looking forward to this a lot!
Year 29 has a lot to look forward to. The celebration for my 30th birthday next summer will be EPIC!

I don't know if it's related to my disability or what. I just find it frustrating.

I feel too lazy to delete it so I will probably still keep it active updating at least once or twice a month. I am not on here as often as I used to be because I mostly post on wordpress now.

Writing prompts and random ramblings... updates on my personal life will appear in this blog every so often,
Respond letting me know if you read this still and I will still continue to update.
I haven't updated in two years. To be perfectly honest I have lost interest in keeping an online journal with relevance to my personal life, I also no longer use tumblr and have since moved to wordpress.
A brief recap
- Princess K,.I.M was a hit last fall. We had wonderful turnout. Thanks to everyone who supported us and came to the show
- I am in the PTA Play Seussical The Musical as a Who, Rehearsals have been keeping me busy 9 DAYS til opening night.
- Matt and I have been together for 6 years. We have discussed possibly getting married in 2016 but nothing is set in stone
- I have been Living in Nashua for almost 2 years and love it!
- Still working at the Y and love it! Searching for a second part time job is a stressful and ongoing process.
- My grandmother's health has steadily declined in the past 7 months. I hate going to see her in the nursing home because I can't stand to see her the way she is.
- I was hit by a car while crossing the street in August. I have recovered from my injuries. Trying to rebuild my confidence with crossing the street.

Best Book Running With Scissors I know it has been out for awhile but I finally got around to reading it. It is a good mix of funny and sad. One of the most powerful book I've ever read.
Best song: Hair from the Revival Cast Recording of HAIR
Best movie There's a tie for this category. The first movie is Precious because there are so many gut wrenching scenes in it that make you want to cry and so many times when you want to feel so happy for Precious for the way she is trying to turn her life around and Alice In Wonderland because it's just an amazing movie and Tim Burton is a genius. :)
