Taking a bite out of the apple

I find it oddly fitting that I started out my day with an apple. I swear I didn’t plan it that way.

I am thinking about what I hope to do during my time here in the big city, and here are a few thoughts:

-I want to sing more. Not for anyone in particular but for myself.  I hope to find a good voice teacher to take my voice to a new level.

-I want to take advantage of the free yoga classes and other exercise classes I will be privy to at my day job.

-I want to audition well, and often.

-I want to find theatrical and commercial representation out here.

-I want to be better about how I spend my money, and despite the financial setback we have just accrued, actually leave here in a better position than when we arrived.

-I want to be better and more deliberate about what I eat.  Eat out less, cook at home more.

-I want to figure out cool things to do in the city for free and/or cheap, with a few high end experiences thrown in.

-I want to always remember: I am not alone in this.  I have a partner, two kitties and many people who love and support me.

Wow...look at me being all intentional and new-agey.  I thought New York was supposed to make you hard and jaded! I thumb my nose at that ideology!

I will keep ya’ll posted on how these intentions play out, and add more as I see fit.  Keep me accountable folks...I need all the help I can get!
