Sorry about my pouty-pants post yesterday. I had my moment(s) and talked with some folks and I feel better. I was just really overwhelmed out of nowhere. So strange. I'm still kind of in what I call my quarter-life crisis, lol. The "I'm 25, what have I done with my life? NOTHING! Oh jeez! Must do! Must DO!" *run in circles like chicken without head* It's weird. I don't like it. I think really truly I'm afraid to grow up. I don't want to! It's so frightening to me. Ah well. I'm working through it.
So I AM really excited because I talked with a gal today about going to school at one of the Art Institutes for animation. YAY! Hopefully that's what I need to kick my butt out of this slump. I have a follow-up phone date tomorrow to talk more about the program, school, money, etc. so we'll see how that goes. :)
As part of the Around the Blogosphere project going on right now, I thought I'd do the assignment from Mayhem and Moxie. The prompt I'm choosing to write about is the best (or worst) hotel you ever stayed in. I'll tell about both, and both I stayed in while I was on tour with the Montana Rep a few years ago. The WORST. It was a Days Inn in Elgin, IL. The rooms were dirty, there was a black film on the bottom of everyone's tub, we saw dead bugs (and some live ones), and - bonus - someone was tackled and handcuffed on the lawn right outside me and roommate's patio door. One of our actors even found a pair of underwear in his room hanging on the bathroom door. UGH. None of us showered while we were there, I'm pretty sure, because we were all afraid of what might be in the tub. It was quite possibly the longest three days ever. The theatre in Elgin was amazing, and so were the folks, but that's a different story. The BEST hotel I've stayed in is a tie I think for the University Inn in Baton Rouge, LA and a Radison in Kansas City, MO. The Radison was really nice, very modern, high end hotel. Sleep number beds in our rooms, bar in the lobby, giant tvs, free wi-fi, etc. The University Inn doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is amazing. It had just been remodeled shortly before we got there, and I got to be the VERY FIRST person to stay in my room! It was brand new. The beds were gigantic and perfectly soft. The shower was made of stone tile. The lobby had a fountain. It was all very exotic and beautiful. We were only there for one short day, sadly.
Well folks, that's my story for today. Thanks for being supportive and letting me have my moments. :) Much appreciated!
