I've given my notice at my current job, and I have 8 work days until I'm outta here. I'm SO excited about the possibility of filling my days with activities that give my life meaning and joy, AND to make money doing those things.

I've also recently returned from performing with my church's vocal ensemble, Spiritus, at World Day of Prayer in Kansas City, MO. It was an honor to be invited to join the group for this momentus occasion, and to perform for a worldwide audience as the events were livestreamed. We sang something like 15 songs, crammed like mad for a month or so ahead of time, and I had such an amazing time getting to know the rest of the group. We had such a fabulous time, and I'm overwhelmed with gratitude to have been a part of it.

In the wake of this trip, I've been invited to be a swing (or, as we lovingly define it, a "Bitch On Call) for the group on a regular basis. This is just further evidence that I'm on the right path, and I can't wait to see what new blessings are headed my way.

Bring it on!

Had an audition this weekend for a dance piece. I used to dance competitively when I was younger, but I haven't really done a lot of dancing since I got out of school a few years ago. It felt pretty cool to be in a room full of dancers again, even if I'm only considered a "mover" at this point.

The style was very contemporary and modern, and while it took me a few tries to get it all down, I was proud of myself at the end of it.

I did not get a call back, but the team was super nice and friendly throughout the whole morning, and I had a great time.

I think I should try to attend more dance calls, if only to build up my ability to retain choreography that's taught very quickly. That's an important skill to have as a performer, and practice is always good.

Damn, it feels good to be getting out there again!
