Today was a good day. Slowly but surely I am coming out of the seclusion of the last few months and seeing my life return to some semblance of what it once was.  See, I told you 2010 would be better.

I woke up in the morning to questions that I need to work on for an upcoming book.  I’m being interviewed on making a living as a creative girl, and my work on web shows and blogging!  That’s exciting. There’s also a possible magazine interview in the works, but I’m not entirely sure about that yet.

After work I met up with a friend to discuss life and performing.  You may know this friend; if you watched Pretty Imperfect she played my roommate.  She’s actually a comedienne I’ve worked with for many years.  That hasn’t ended even though my show did.  We’re working together on a couple of performances later this month.  It feels weird, going back on stage.  It’s been a while.

After dinner and shoptalk we headed to Barnes & Noble, where Elizabeth Gilbert was speaking to promote her new book Committed. It was a madhouse.  There must have been over a thousand people there, and I’m not exaggerating.  There was security all over and TVs set up so people could see.  I saw Salman Rushdie read there before and it was like thirty people, go figure!

I really liked Eat, Pray, Love, but I’m not into extreme sports, so I ended up leaving the book reading.  I do think I’ll pick up her new book though, it looks interesting.  From the parts of the reading I heard, she and her now husband, Felipe, were dead set against marriage, having both been married before.  A tricky little thing called US Immigration, forced them to reconsider and she had to come to terms with her fears of marriage.

All in all, it was a simple day, a very normal day, but it was the first day in a long while that I felt like I was living my life again.

I think all that’s left for me is a little yoga before bed.
