High School me FREAKED OUT.

This past weekend high school me freaked out. FREAKED OUT. 

I saw Good Charlotte live. They were part of the free summer concert series on Fremont Street. The crowd that showed up broke the record for number attending!

it was hot and there were a lot of people and my knees hated me afterwards, but it was so worth it! 

I’ve been a Good Charlotte fan ever since their first album, 17 years ago. It was love at first listen. I just never thought I would get the opportunity to see them live, which made it so much more special that I did. 

I love doing theatre and being in entertainment, but having a “regular” 9 to 6 job has it’s perks. Like getting to go to concerts. With the theatre schedule, I wouldn’t have been able to go. 

My partner and I talk about that a lot, having a “normal” schedule. It’s still strange for us both.

I think we’re lucky, with the perspective that we have. This time, right now, with “regular” jobs and weekends and evening free, it isn’t permeant. We both know that. We both want to go back to the crazy theatre schedules, it’s what we love, but we’re not rushing it. We’re able to enjoy the normality more, because we know it isn’t what things are going to be like forever.

So for now, I’m going to get back to my 9 to 6 job, go to the gym after work and then go home with my love, make dinner and watch a little TV and we’ll be in bed by 11pm.

And I couldn’t be more happy about it.

Life changes.

So much has happened over the past year. So many life changes.

I no longer work on cruise ships. I’m done. After 11 sign on days, 9 ships, three companies and 5 calendar years, I’m done.

During my last few contracts onboard, I started thinking about where I wanted to live when I was done. I had several lists going, weighing the pros and cons of my different options, and I landed on Vegas.

Las Vegas.

Thru a series of random events, my partner and I moved here in January of 2017. Since we’re both in entertainment, it seemed like a good place to plant out roots at first.

It’s been 6 months since we moved here, and we are actually completely happy. I’m not working in entertainment at the moment, and I’m ok with that. For so long my career was the absolute top priority in my life, and that was ok. But now, I don’t want that to always be the case. I haven’t had a real personal life in so long, that I am loving that it’s my top priority now.

We’ll both be going back to weird hours and working 6 days a week at some point, but currently, we are loving having weekends and nights! Who knew those were so awesome?! Been missing out.
