Happy Friday!

“Another opnin’ of another show!” Yes, readers, my show opens tonight, and I’ve got 5 performances this weekend! I’ll be singing, acting, and dancing my heart out all weekend, and I’ll have some interesting posts next week. What are you up to this weekend?

Finally Friday

Is it me, or has this week been particularly long? I think it’s due to the unusually short week for Thanksgiving. Either way, December is here, and the insanity gets even more intense! I’ve got a rehearsal tonight and tomorrow, a study session for stats, an apartment showing, and a concert… and that’s all before Monday! Here’s what I’m reading to kick off the weekend:

Happy Friday!

It turned cold here in Texas, so I’m looking forward a fall-feeling weekend! I’m also looking forward to a music-filled weekend, as my husband and I are attending an “Explosions in the Sky” concert tonight, I’ve got a 2 hour rehearsal for my show, and I’m singing on Sunday. Amid all that performing, I should probably study for statistics… but here’s what I’m reading to post-pone the studying as long as possible:
