While on vacation (getting a little r and r) I began to reflect on one of the busiest times in my life: fall quarter 2017. That time was probably one of the craziest, most artistically fulfilling times in my life. At one point I was performing a play professionally (Hamlet); rehearsing a new-work musical (Near Love Songs); cast in a play (Gibraltar); and cast in a play with the role TBD (Richard III). (I also had a couple auditions peppered within that time). This period taught me the importance of self care and to balance a happy personal life with a fulfilling artistic one. I prioritized sleep and seeing friends, valuing a relaxing cup of coffee with a friend to decompress. At times, it was deeply challenging negotiating this time, but when again in my life will I be able to say that I was working on (to some extent) four amazing productions at once?
