The walls are closing in...
Or, so it starts to feel. Everything is becoming more and more real each day. This is all happening to me. And, I'm excited and scared a little at the same time. It'll all turn out amazing. By this time next month, I'll be settled in and just getting ready to tape my demo!
I don't mess around. I just get all of the major changes out of the way at once. The three big arenas in which changes usually happen are all whisking me away to a new life all at the same time. New place to live, new relationship status (can you say "single?"!!!!!!!!!), and potentially a new job. Tomorrow is the interview. Now, here's the thing. Ages and ages ago I figured out how to be a great interviewee. I've aced every interview that appealed to me. So, that doesn't faze me a bit!
I had a sudden realization today. I hate the wine business. There, I said it. I just want to be able to wear perfume again (you can't sell wine and wear perfume). I don't want to worry about vineyards, points given to the wines by trade mags, whether they've oaked it, or not, if it's on goal for the company, if the account owes money. I just want to enjoy wine when I'm out for dinner and not wonder when I'm out how I could edge my wines in over the competition that currently have their wines on the list. I want to do voice overs and make sculptures, find something cool to blog about (not wine!!!!), act in a play and make people laugh, have fun, work out, hike, take an art class, do large scale calligraphy and illumination, go car racing, go to a car show, drink Champagne on a warm spring day in Reims or Ay, fly a glider, go on a helicopter ride, ride a horse at sunset, plant antique roses, paint a mural, take a stand up comedy class, join a cross fit class, throw parties and invite fun and funny people, make everyone laugh that I meet. Oh, and kiss Mr. Man. A lot.
And, you know what? So I shall. All of it.
