Spread the Word


How do you recover from a huge failing, either moral or financial? 

Many grew up saying, "That will never be me," in regards to certain situations.

One of my colleagues grew up with drug addicts for parents. However, that didn't prevent this individual from bar hopping and smoking it up repeatedly. 

Although the person eventually quit their bad habits, it took years and the birth of children to slow that party train down. 

Why do we not honor the promises that we make to ourselves? 

When we see a counter example and tell ourselves that we'll never model our lives after that person, why do we regress and wind up doing exactly that?

Oftentimes, the most intelligent people make the most irrational decisions. Decisions that could have easily been avoided if we had stayed true to our promise of never making certain errors in life. 

When it comes to budgeting and finances. I've definitely made a great deal of errors that were completely avoidable in hindsight. For whatever reason, I keep asking myself, how did I end up so far away from the place that I wanted to be? When years ago, I reassured myself that would never be me. 

Organizational & Financial Goal$

This is my first update of the New Year. It will be a short entry. The two main focuses outside of academic and career goals are to earn more every month and get more organized every month.

If I tackle it daily, weekly, and monthly and check in with goals daily, weekly, & monthly, then maybe by December or even June, I'll be one step closer to achieving these goals. 
Creativity is high on the priority list. This year's other goal is to be more candid and creative with the updates. 

Now that I have a microphone and plan on getting more camera technology, podcasting is something that I want to commit to doing this year. 

In terms of organization, I think my level of cleanliness is average. I need to set up a system for maintaining at least above average organization every day.

Organization is a huge component of success. Waking up early is not the issue, it's what happens in those precious moments after getting up every morning. 

Some write goals afte waking up daily, I'd like to sort that habit this morning. Before tonight's cast party, I'll make sure to work out, eat healthiliy, and clean my room. By the end of next week, I want to get in the habit of making my bed regularly.

Tonight, we'll watch the play together reminisce and talk about the future of the cast. Alright, time to pack my gym bag. 

Everything's Alright

There are some snow flurries outside, it's my seventh full year in Pittsburgh. My ad is around town, most notably it's near Heinz Field, the Carnegie Science Center, and Three Rivers Casino.

The photo shoot was a little over two months ago, I remember it like it was yesterday because it was the first paid gig I'd had as a model. Now, I'm less than three weeks away from opening night at the Kelly StrayhornTheater. 

The only thing I have to do before then is memorize my singing solo, practice feeling the lines, and work on getting into character regularly. 

The show will do well in Pittsburgh, but I'm more concerned about the traveling and how it may impact my work schedule. 

Depending on when we travel, I may have to take off work. We're going to the South and the Midwest. North Carolina: Greensboro and Charlotte. Illinois: Chicago. 

We may do other theaters around town and add cities to the roster. Well, this is a significant milestone in my life. The back-to-back interviews, auditions, and paid gigs means that things will only get better next year.
