Lazy Days

Square

I have been extremely lazy about posting. But that should be obvious, as my last post was nine months ago.

Truth be told I felt somewhat disheartened over the winter. It happens to all of us at times. And it happened to me.

I can blame many things, but at the end of the list of excuses is the simple fact that I’ve been lazy.

When I first graduated from theatre school I had such a fire under my ass, every day felt like the end of days and I simply had to be auditioning, talking, socializing, creating. Well, it’s been five years since graduation and sometimes I get tired. This winter was one of those times, and I essentially went into hibernation. I read a lot (the Gunslinger series by Stephen King, read it). I watched a lot of movies, and TV (big ups to Kat Dennings of 2 Broke Girls who is now my personal role model). I went to bed late, I woke up late, I perfected my chocolate chip pancake recipe, and you know what? I don’t regret a moment of it.

I took a little holiday from the constant stress I put on myself about always being on, and I feel a million worlds better for it. Now I’m in a show, it’s Fringe festival in Toronto, I’m out of my cave, and it really does feel rejuvenating in a way that I can’t quite express. It’s nice, it’s not work. I don’t feel like I have to be social, and shmoozy, I can just be. And that’s a much better feeling.

If you all only knew how many hours I spent on video games this winter… You’d think I’d tried to switch careers.

And I’m still proud of it. Being lazy was exactly what I needed.

Get ready for more posts.
