I finally made it up here to the Northwest and everything is good so far. The drive was long and tedious, but familiar faces as "pit-stops" along the way helped us get through it.
Our trip consisted of 5 days of driving. Day one - Birmingham to Dallas. We stayed with family and I was able to socialize with cousins that I do not see very often and also see some new additions to the growing family! Day two - Dallas to Albuquerque. The only night in a hotel, but we did have some AMAZING mexican food at Little Anita's. Try it out if you are in the area! Day three - Albuquerque to Vegas with a minor detour to the Grand Canyon! I stayed with my ballet teacher from BDT who relocated to the Vegas area a few years ago. And I now have a new, 4-year-old boyfriend, Connor! :) He is the most adorable child I think I have ever met! Day four - Vegas to Folsom to stay with my Uncle's family. No blood relation to me there, but we already call each other family even after such a short visit! Day five - Folsom to Seattle! After 15 hours in the truck, we finally made it to my apartment.
My apartment is finally coming together and I already have a job! I went for an interview at Great Play on Monday and started work on Tuesday! Life is falling into place!
I have a few auditions this weekend for films and then a couple more in the next few weeks. Hopefully I will get a hang of the city soon enough and I will even venture to take the bus instead of driving my car. Heaven knows I don't need to spend the gas money!
Out of the 6 days I have been here it has only rained at ALL on 3 of them and only one was really what I call RAIN. The others were mild drizzle for minutes at a time.
I miss many people already, but I know that I am doing what I love and what is best for me right now. And, just so those people know, I ALWAYS have a place for them to sleep if they ever feel like visiting! :)
Live and Love,
