Home Sweet Home

Well i want to start this post with thanking everyone for your kind words. I had a really rough "terrible horible no good very bad day" and it helps to know that people really care. 

I ended up being alright (thank god) and IM HOME!!!

I love the comforts of home. My amazing bed, my full stocked pantry and fridge, my gym membership, my closet full of clothes, my favorite grocery 
stores, WHOLE FOODS, my mom, dad boyfriend and beautiful friends, my puppy! We truly take so many things for granted when we are home. Being away made me realize how much I appreciate all that I have and love here at home. 

Well now that I'm home, I have to figure out what my next move is. It is pretty scary being unemployed (I know that I just had an amazing job for almost 5 months, and i worked my butt off, but I still hate not having something RIGHT now) 
Since the economy is so bad right now over 15 Broadway shows are closing... which mean all of those veterans who have amazing resumes are out of work... which means theyre going to go for the things I normally would be going for. This makes my life 
DIFFICULT.
There are lots of tours auditioning, but Im not sure that I want to go back out so soon... i love being home, and I dont know if I can deal with living out of a suit case so soon.

I have been super interested in nutrition, health, and exercise for as long as I can remember. I was talking to my moms personal trainer about it and decided that I am going to take a course in Personal training/ nutrition. The class is super well rounded, incorporates anatomy, the business aspects of training, nutrition, creating a well balanced di
et for a client, disease and precautions while training etc. It will be a great way to make money on my off time, I can make my own hours and still audition.

Im super excited about this because I feel like its a different direction that I can move in, yet I can still persue my dream. So I will keep you all updated with how I like it and if I decide if this is for me.

Well speaking of the gym. I have been there quite a bit. Ive been spinning, running, lifting stretching.. and I LOVE IT. I really missed working out.
Here is one of my post work out meals.
Thing sliced whole wheat toast with 2 tbs of sun butter.. some carob chips, 2 medjool dates and a couple of apricot kernels. 
ALSO my favorite mango, banana, peach smoothie with rice milk and agave nectar.

I LOVE BEING HOME!!!

im going to be making something yummy tonight for dinner.. probably something inspired by one of your fabulous blogs!!!

HORRAY HORRAYYYYYY

Home sweet home! YAY! I haven't "known" you too long, but the course in personal training/nutrition does sound like a good match for you!

Enjoy your home, gym, food, family, friends and all that good stuff! :)

Yay your back home!

I just saw your comment, and yes I'm switching out of a nutrition and dietitics major into a double major of physical education and theatre.

I'm still very passionate about nutrition but I really don't want to go down the line of becoming an RD. I'm more intrested in the culinary field and I'm thinking about going to culinary school after I graduate.

Basically right now I'm gonna be doing the most i can do in dance, since that is what I want to do more than anything, but career wise I don't know how it would work out because its so hard to make it as a dancer!

Aw yay, back home. :) Home is such a relief after being away isn't it? It must feel AMAZING after being gone for so long to get back to all of those comforts.

I think the training/nutrition class is a great idea, and it sounds super interesting! I should look into something like that offered around here.

Keep enjoying the comforts of home and I hope you're able to figure out what exactly you want to do in terms of jobs/auditions etc soon. I'm sure you'll find something worthwhile!

**Just as a heads up: I will not be able to comment on blogs as often now, during this semester, due to work overload (I'm stressed already) - PLEASE know that I'm still loyally reading, but just won't have time to comment. I hope you understand!!
