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.
