I mentally checked out last Wednesday afternoon.
It was my birthday Thursday (“Happy birthday!” Awwe, thank you!), and on Wednesday afternoon, my boss took me and my coworkers to a drink. And I have been a little checked out ever since.
Mostly because tomorrow I go to my hometown to visit my family and friends for a week. Then I go to Austin, Texas for a comedy festival. So I’m on a 10 day hiatus from work and life in LA as of tomorrow. And it comes just on the heels of a great birthday celebration.
I can’t really submit to auditions right now because most of the stuff has auditions while I’m out of town. I can work on my own projects- as always- though my schedule priorities will be spending time with family and friends I don’t get to see often at all.
I appreciate when I get time to be “off” but I’ll admit… it makes me a little wonky. I don’t really know what to do with myself. I end up doing a lot of staring into space or making eye contact with strangers who think I’m passing some sort of judgment on them when really I’m just lost in my own weird mind world.
And my posts are a little all over the place. Just like my mind. As you can see.
We’ve got over 10 days of this wonkiness to get through together people. Prepare the chocolate bars, as they are the only comfort available.
