Long Month

Where did August go and what do i have to prove that it was busy?! Not much.  

Rory's sisters came into town, it was awesome.  We ate awesome food, took an amazing road trip to San Francisco and drove back down the Highway 1, taking our time.  It was so nice.  We stopped in Santa Cruz and picked up some cheese, bread, wine, honey and an apple or two.  Then we stopped at a roadside farm stand and picked up a few pints of strawberries.  When we were about 15 min away from the Hearst Castle we pulled off the road, walked out to the edge of the cliff and sat down and had a picnic.  We sat and talked and ate and looked at the ocean for about an hour. It was great, I think the best part of the journey.

I've cooked a few meals with my girlfriend Janell.  We've made salads full of summer veggies, talpia, steak, corn and there's been a lot of brie and baguettes with a side of wine. :)  I've started exercising more and I've made a point of having at least one day off from all of my many jobs. I think I might be turning a new corner here in LA.  I miss acting. I miss the creative process.  So...I have to make it for myself. I have to just do...even if that means no time to myself and no days off, I just have to do. 

What exactly does this all mean? I'm not 100% sure but I do know that I will have to take baby steps, one bit at a time. Mini goals nothing too terrifying.  Being terrified is what has stopped me in the first place. I know I need to do my research. I need to finish making my reel again - I have new things to add. I have to move forward. On anything. 

Well. There's August. Now comes September.  I might do the NaBPoMo (right?) again.  The theme for September is Return. Seems fitting.  (Oh yeah - and I have to start thinking about planning a wedding!)

How was your August? Did you survive the heat, the earthquake back east, Hurricane Irene? Fill me in.
