Simple Pleasures

My birthday week was absolutely fabulous. It felt like the pieces of my life were starting to fall into place, which is great because I've been in such a state of turmoil for so long. And even though I have since hit a few bumps along the way, the good outweighs the not-so-good, and I've been fairly content with where I'm currently at.

A Date

I pretty much hate the whole dating game. It can be fun going out, getting to know a new guy, but overall, it's a little stressful for me. One day in San Francisco, I decided to let myself be open to new possibilities. I wasn't going to approach anyone, but I was going to be open to being approached by someone, not that I was expecting to speak to anyone. Low and behold, the cutie I passed by stopped me and asked me for my number. After about a month of not being able to meet up, I was in the city once again and even though we nearly missed yet another opportunity, it ended up working out. We hit it off and I'm looking forward to seeing him again, but I hope his free-spirited way doesn't take him away from the city any time soon.

An Audition

I've mentioned a few times that it's been difficult up here in the acting world because auditions are few and far between. I've had to miss out on a couple recently because of work and being out of town, but then I was called in again and the timing just worked out. I didn't get the part, but I'm not particularly surprised since the girl I was paired up with didn't give me much to work off of. I carried us through the audition the best I could with my improvised dialogue about the aquarium, but I guess it wasn't enough. Besides, as soon as I saw one of the match-ups before me, I had a feeling they were going to nail it. We'll see if they went with the girl and the guy, but until then, I'm just satisfied with the fact that this was the first time I wasn't even nervous!

An Opportunity
No matter how dated, I still loved the mirror tiles...taken the day I got the keys to my new place.
I've been living in my condo now for three years. It's been my home away from my childhood home and while I didn't expect to stay so long, I've grown attached to this place of mine. Okay, so it's not mine per se, I don't own it, but it is still my home. With the recent stress of knowing the place was in pre-foreclosure, I finally had a break. The owner was now willing to sell. I had done my due diligence and contacted the property management company and informed them of my desire to buy if given the opportunity and that paid off. The realtor contacted me, the seller said she'd accept my offer, and now that I've officially submitted said offer, I have to wait and see if it will all go through. It's not a sure thing, nothing ever is, but I'm hopeful. Of course if it doesn't work out, I'm ditching the place all together and moving home. I might just be the only way for me to seriously save some money so I can buy a house elsewhere.
