The next chapter of my life is upon me and that is horrifying and amazingly exciting fact! Two days ago, I completed my first professional contract, for the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse in Auburn, NY and sent it in. I am officially an employed actor for a month this summer! It doesn't seem like much, I know, but it's a huge step in my life. I will be a member of the ensemble and the quartet in My Fair Lady with MGR before figuring out what comes next. I'm still waiting on a few theaters I auditioned for in the last couple of months, but it is definitely official, we're not in Kansas anymore.
The weirdest fact of all this is that when the summer ends...that's it. I don't go back to school, I'm still living my life as I will. No longer do I live on a semester life schedule, no longer does september 1st mean back to school shopping and classes. It means that I will be wherever I end up, hopefully acting, working as hard as I can to make a living, and finally applying the lessons I've learned in the last 22 years of my life to the real world.
This is not a long blog post, I don't have much to say beyond that, but as I look forward to this next chapter, I'm excited by all those who stand beside me, for all those who give me support, and for all the challenges I will overcome in my path. Look out world, here I come!
But seriously, if you have a job needing filling...I would love to have it!

I find myself hilarious, and I use this blog to stroke my own ego. Thanks for indulging me.
