Hi, I'm New Here

I may be new, but I am certainly not a first time blogger- I just thought it was time to move on from Live Journal. To be honest, the name "Live Journal" always creeped me out. "Blogger" just get's right to the point, y'know? Besides, I'm currently in the midst of a love affair with Gmail and if this is the blog they offer, then by golly, this is the blog I will have!

Anyhoo, for those of you who haven't been clued into the boring life that I've been living the last few months, don't worry...you haven't missed much. I'm currently pulling myself out of a "post-graduation" slump. Over the summer I suddenly realized that I wasn't sure what I was going to do with my life. Then, I sat around and pined over the fact that I didn't know what I want to do with my life. Acting? Peace Corps? Grad school? Laying around and doing nothing? The options are endless. But alas, it is a new year and I am less than one month away from my 23rd (ew) birthday and suddenly the unknown of my future doesn't seem so scary...in fact, it seems kind exciting!

- I currently work @ a property management company in Edgewater. It's boring, but it pays the bills and it's flexible. I work in a small office with four other people (two of whom I happen to be related to). It's surprisingly amusing sometimes, but not in the "haha" way, more in the "I quietly snicker to myself" way.

- I just recently performed in the Chicago Sketch Fest with Awkward Silence. It was a blast and well-received. It helped remind me how much I love performing. My life is lacking without.

- I'm vegan. Don't furrow your brow! I love it! Environmentalism revolves around the fork, y'all. Read Mad Cowboy by Howard Lyman and your life is sure to change for the better. Don't knock it 'til you try it.

- I'm currently looking into doing some volunteering/traveling in the next year or so. Possibly the Peace Corps or AmeriCorps? I secretly wanted to do it ever since volunteering during the summers in high school, but throughout college I was married to the idea of becoming a working actor right out of school. Suddenly the world seems a lot bigger and my interest in current events continues to grow. I'm beginning to think I'm capable of doing a lot more than just sitting in a room, waiting for an audition...we-shall-seeeee!

I'm done with my first blogger blog now. If you read all this, THANK YOU. If not, then you won't even see this part in the blog when I call you a FOOL for not sticking with me.

Okay! See around!

No more LJ? That's so sad. I've been contemplating a move as well. We shall see.
