Lesson Learned. And, Doing the Thing!
It has been a whirlwind of a year thus far in a lot of ways. I spent some time in LA this summer, and I’ve been having those “could be great, could be nothing” conversations for the past couple of months. What I’ve learned, more than anything, is just how many people in LA are just like you and me. The amount of wonderful people hustling, trying to make something happen, is outstanding, inspiring, and humbling. I got such a strong sense of community when I was out there, and though I’d absolutely love/murder/vampire slay to live out there, it’s too expensive for me right now. Sure, that could change but we also live in the chaos timeline. Literally: anything could happen.
Well? If anything could happen, sometimes the best way to facilitate that is to simply “do the thing”. I’m so happy to report that I had a wonderful time on my sabbatical this summer and I’m in the best possible space I can be right now. It really was lovely, and I recognize the privileges involved in having the space to rest, heal, and focus on me. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead!
In the category of “doing the thing”, I’m so pleased to share that I will be live-streaming two Dungeons & Dragons games to help raise money for the charity Xtra Life for Kids. This is only the second or third time I’ve live-streamed a performative game session, and I’m super excited about being in full costume, makeup, and hair for the first time.
I’ll have more updates as the month continues, I’m sure. Hope you’re all doing well. Huzzah!
