So in my vacationing I completely forgot that tonight was the last Friday of 2011.
WOO HOOO! END OF THE YEAR BITCHES.
Anyway, for those of you who know me, you know I do my whole year end spheal and blahblahblahblah. I get all sentimental and giddy when it comes to the New Year. I get really happy and sad, but I also get cray cray thinking of all the new things to come. Call me weird, but I’m the type of person that LOVES to make moments occasions. If that makes any sense…
One end of the year, mushy gushy, ewwy goeey, send off from Mexico comin right up! (Yeah, I’m that person right now. DEAL.)
One of the great things about this coming year is that I’m going into it with a purpose. I feel like I’m actually working towards a goal, rather than just feeling the moment and going with life. Which is fine, but over the years I’ve become the kind of person that gets lost easily if there’s no plan involved that’s driving them. I got through high school because I wanted to make my parents proud and so that I could be one of the few members of my family to say that I actually made it out and made something of myself. Something that would honor the Moreno name and our tradition of hard workers. I haven’t been keeping up with that creed and I really want to start. Spending the past few days in Mexico has reminded me of that. I’m glad I was able to go on this trip right up to the New Year.
2011 was weird year for me. I started out with an initial goal to be happy. What does that even? Happiness is different for most people. For me, Happiness meant not being sad and not letting myself get down about silly things. Well, that sorta worked for me. To be honest, this has been a year where I have had fewer days where I felt like complete shit about myself. There were days…and nights…where things got bat shit crazy. And for that I thank the people that stuck by me and let me sob until things got better. You guys are the best and I can’t tell you how glad I am that you are part of my life and that you let me into yours.
This is the year I actually started seeing a therapist. Her name is Sarah and I couldn’t have chosen a better person to help me out this year. We met through the university counseling program and then started seeing each other outside of UNT. Equine Therapy. Freightening and yet quite awesome. She’s not like any of the other counselors I had encountered who simply just made me talk. While I enjoy that very much, I feel like she’s the kind of person who pushed me to answer questions and actually did her job. A big thanks to her and I can’t wait to get back to Magno(He’s this GIGANTIC horse. Although, I don’t see him quite as big anymore. that’s what she said. hahahah….ohhh……yupp).
Show wise and career wise…this was a good year. I got two Design 3 shows, each of which tested me pretty well. In The Blood really exposed to make-up design for the first time. An All black cast. For someone who hadn’t taken make-up for a while, and for someone who is not black, this proved quite a challenge. Virginia Woolf…was another story. I can’t say I loved working on this show. BUT it did teach me a lot. Also, my renderings show signifficant improvement during this show. Cafe Des Artistes was something extrememly new. I didn’t know what to do for the longest time other than wait on the creativity of the cast and directorial staff to point me on the way. This opened a new interest for me in the type of theatre I want to be more involved in. This was some of the most hoenst theatre I’ve ever seen, and I can’t thank Tashina enough for allowing me into this process (SHOUT OUT). 5 months of working a show is intense. But I loved it. Savage/Love was truly interesting and I got to work with some awesome people. It’s become one of my favorite shows to work on and, If I do say so myself, produced a most fantastic prompt book. Just Sayin’.
I never know how to finish these. OH WAIT. I DO. Goals. Resolutions. Promises. Wahtever you want to call them, every person tries to set these at the end of each year for the next. I think it’s difficult to make promises to ones self. If ever someone was harder to trust with something, it’s yourself. That’s why this year I’m limiting myself to 3 things. 3 things that I hope to accomplish before the year is out. 3 things that I will try to do on my own and for my own benefit. The last one I borrowed from Aaronnitron, cause it sounds legit.
Go out and adventure unseen areas
Be more open to creativity and to art
End the year with at least $1, 000 in savings.
So, I hope you all have a fabulous New Years Ever. Drink, be merry, be safe. I’ll see you guys on the other side!
