Baby Steps

A few weeks ago my family visited me, and it was a lot of fun getting to be a tourist with them for a week.  I learned a lot about New York City and fell in love with the place even more.  I had mentioned a call back in my previous post.  Unfortunately, I did not get past the call back due to my weight at this time.  Not going to lie or beat around the bush.  That is the situation.  They called me in with a couple of other girls to tell us that they wanted to keep us, but unfortunately, due to our weight, they were unable to.  They told us to come back in May, and if they see improvement, they may have a spot for us.  I appreciate getting the feedback and I will try to use this as motivation to work even harder.  On a happier note, I did get accepted into a small contemporary modern dance company.  I am still doing auditions and classes when I can, but I also have been looking into getting a marketing or social media job part time.  These classes don’t pay for themselves you know.  I have gone to a couple of interviews, so hopefully I will have some good news about that in the future.  I did an audition for a specific role in West Side Story.  I learned that I need to do more research before an audition if it is for a specific role because I did not look like a tomboy like I should have.  Anyways, as of right now, I am just trying to get into better shape, dance when I can, and learn anything I can in my free time.  I am trying to force myself to read novels and pretend to enjoy it, so maybe I will be able to teach myself how to like reading.  We will see.  I am also doing my taxes.  A lot of just random collections of things I am doing right now because I do have free time, which is weird for me.
