A happier life

Life is good right now.

I'm still not very good at it, but I feel like I'm in a better position than I was a year ago.

This is strange to say since my world has completely flipped on it's head since last year.

It's difficult to describe why things were not so hot last year...

I had a job I loved and I made good money. Ya da.... boring.

But I felt like I couldn't set up roots. I couldn't make a home for myself. I couldn't make a life for myself. Everything was so temporary. Every ten weeks I had a new work assignment, with a new paycheck, new classes, etc. Every ten weeks I'd bide my time to find out if I still had a decent living or not. After trying to get benefits for 3 years, I knew I'd never get them if I stayed there.

And now, I'm in Utah. I am near family and able to support them in their different pursuits. I am in a great job and I finally have a 9-5 schedule so I can do shows at night! In just a couple of weeks I will hit my 90 day probation and I'll have benefits at work!

I feel like I'm finally in a good place. I can set up roots! I can bloom in this place!

For my future, I'd like to work hard everyday for my company, continue to work in the theatre and soon become active in the community. I'd like to serve on various boards and in a few years run for office.

Meanwhile, I just need to get through the next few days without keeling over and dying!

Tomorrow, I work from 9-5, (which always ends up being 9-6) and then I'm off to my cousin's performance in the opera, then Saturday I'm rehearsing all day before performing in a talent show that night.

I am grateful for energy drinks. And now I should go to bed.

A boring post about Sleeping

I need to start blogging more regularly again. I'm going to!

This morning, I called in sick because I had to pick up my brother and his friends from the airport. When calling in--you reach an automated system. At the end of the call it says,

Press 3 if you want an automated pick me up.

I pressed 3.

The voice said something to this effect:

We're sorry you're not feeling well, but it'll be all right. Get out from under the covers. The sun will peak through the clouds and everything will be fine! We need you! You're an important part of this company!

I love my new job.

My little brother went to NYC this past week with the BYU Model United Nations team and they took everything! It was great hearing about his trip!

I went home and crashed. I slept all day.

I'm exhausted!

Six hours later, I woke up and went to a ward dinner.

And now I'm home.

My word, what a boring post!

But hey--I wrote!
