Dear Universe,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you. Thank you for my life.

I know that's probably not something that you expected to hear right at this moment. I know it's not something I expected to be saying right now. But right now, I have to say it.

At this moment, I am in a rather unique position. I am quasi employed at a job that I (surprisingly) enjoy making not much money with a flexible schedule. I'm not to far away from a city where there are bundles of auditions of which I need to start taking part. I am close to my family, who I love dearly. I'm surrounded by friends who are intelligent, generous and loving. And I'm creating.

Tonight I had Improv Class. Class six is the class that I generally dread. Class six is (in my eyes) the make it or break it class. Class six is where I stop with the hardcore drills and let them loose to start creating scenes.

In Boston, I had a difference of opinion with the other instructors, and I drilled the basics much longer than they did before I let my folks actually do a scene that was more than 3 lines long. And then, in class six, I let them loose.

I have yet to be disappointed.

Tonight was no exception. My group (some old timers and some novices) made me very proud with the work they did. EVERYONE had at least one moment of brilliance tonight. At least one moment where they were completely and totally in the scene, out of their head, and creating. And it was awesome to watch. Everyone there tonight showed me that they can do it. Makes me all happy on the inside.

I'm glad that I've got the chance to do this.

Greedy for more
