Time To Myself: An Unfamiliar Thing
Tuesday, February 18, 2014
I’m not used to having a lot of time on my hands. For the last 10 years or so of my life, I have gone from one commitment to another. In college, I thrived on leaving my dorm at 6am and not returning until 11pm. Even now, when I go from work to errands to rehearsal, I love it. Although it does exhaust me quite a bit, I still love it. Now that my show has closed, I have more time on my hands then I’m used to and going to bed at a decent hour is also a foreign concept.
I miss my cast and I miss the late nights laughing with them. For the past 5 weeks, I’ve been busy with my show and my social life. Movie outings, mini-golf, game night and of course, cast parties. It has been an absolute blast, and I don’t think I’ve laughed this much in a very long time.
I’ve also noticed that aforementioned social life has really put a damper on my attempts to get back to 200lbs. With the food, the drinking and my not being able to get a workout in you already probably have an idea as to how bad that is. While I wouldn’t trade all of those times with my cast in the world, I do know that I have to get it together and refocus. Since I have no rehearsals, I’ll be working out every day this week (even if it’s 30 minutes). There are no excuses for me not to go, unless I just really don’t feel well enough to do it. I’m feeling really positive about my ability to hit my fitness minutes goal for this week and I’m excited to do it.
Normally, as soon as I’m done with a show I jump to another one, which is may happen if I audition for another show (Sunday). I’m kind of on the fence about the whole thing, seeing how nice it is to have free time. Perhaps I should just cool it for a while…
Oh…and man have I missed my books, I have time to READ again!
Maybe time on my hands won’t be so bad after all. I almost don’t even know where to begin.
