In just a few weeks, I'll be packing my bags and heading to NYC. Thanks to some amazing friends, I will be housesitting for them for the month and living rent-free.
I have about a month to find a job. Ya - I'm freaking out. I've been looking around on Craigslist, but there's really not much I can do until I get there.
So this goes out to all of you out there who've moved to NYC, or currently live in NYC - What did you do when you first moved? What should I do to find a job? And leads, hints, suggestions, openings, etc?
Comment. E-mail. Call. Text. Get back to me!

I'm a huge coffee drinker. I grew up in a family who used to give me coffee in my bottle (with LOTS of milk, of course). To this day, you can walk into my parent's house and there will be coffee made - and if not, my mom will brew some for you.
It was fate that I got a job at Starbucks. Free coffee? Yes, please! I worked there for over a year and it was bliss. Many a venti coffee have graced these lips.
Well, move over venti! Starbucks now has the "trenta" size. Yes folks, trenta - like 30! It's like a Starbucks Big Glup! Since I was getting to the point where I could suck down a venti iced coffee in a matter of minutes, the trenta is just what I needed. It's not in ALL Starbucks yet, but if they have one, you should get one. Who doesn't need 30 oz of caffeine?
Well, here's a few other facts about the trenta...
Apparently it will fill your tank. :)
And - when you are done, you can put an entire bottle of wine in the cup. "I'll just have one glass of wine, I swear."

Yes, it's the gym!
If you are my friend on FB - and you should be - you are totally aware that I go to the gym - A LOT! On tour, my roommate Lindsay and I were total gym bunnies and formed TEAM SNATCHED! It started with a few others in our
journey to be super fierce for Hawaii. We did a
pretty awesome job, and looked pretty fierce, if we do say so ourselves! Here's a pic from Hawaii...
That was last summer, and I've kept up with the gym through this last tour thanks to Lindsay! But now being off of tour and back home, I've been hitting the gym on my own.
I must say that it's much harder to stay motivated without a gym partner. I always had Lindsay to make me feel guilty about not going to
the gym. And I always seem to get really good workouts when I hit the
gym with Brad. I dunno - when I go to the gym alone, I tend to wimp out, or just tire out before I get everything that I planned on done.
But, I'm still going, and trying to keep it snatched! I signed up at Planet Fitness - that's a picture of the gym up there. Its super cheap and there's tanning there, too! A 2-4-1 deal! I also can get someone in for free, so if ya wanna come be my gym partner - COME ON! Speaking of - I should probably get off of the computer and GET to the gym! :)

And we turn the page and end another chapter of our lives.
I wrapped up my tour with Sesame Street Live! a few weeks ago. After leaving them for a bit, and just doing replacement work here and there, it was crazy going back and doing a WHOLE tour from start to finish. But overall, it was a great experience.
I was supposed to be Big Bird, but right before production started, I was asked to move to Tall Understudy - meaning having to understudy 5 roles besides my own. A challenge - but I took it.
My performance director used us often and really put our understudy abilities to the test. I got to do roles I'd never done, and got to get back into some characters that seem to NEVER leave! It was hard. It was stressful. It was fun.
But now that chapter is done. I'm back home in Louisiana for a bit, and headed to NYC in July to housesit for some friends for a few weeks. Hopefully in that time, I can find a place and a job and start a new chapter in NYC. It's around that time to just get out there and start something new. A new challenge. A new adventure.

Ok ok ok, I know. I haven't touched this thing since Thanksgiving. I kinda suck at life.
But, I'm doing the tour thing - which will be coming to an end in a month, so I think it's time to focus on things a little bit and get myself prepared for the road ahead.
I'm going to start this up again. It's fun to look back and see where I've been - especially when I'm not totally sure where I'm headed next. And it's good to have a place to vent - and hopefully get some words of a advice from all of you out there on the internet.
So, these next few blogs are gonna be catching you up on what's been going on in my life! Tune in! :)
