January 2011

January 2011

I am finally 30 years old! I am so content personally with being 30 years old; however, professionally, I am terrified, but trying to enjoy the journey! I rang in my 30th birthday in Lakeland, Florida with fellow cast members of the Nuclear Cowgirlz. They kidnapped me and took me to a gaming center. First, they threw me in the kid’s pen with plastic balls. Next we geared up for laser tag-so fun! Then we played air hockey, basketball, and skee-ball. We all had a blast! Thank you ladies for an awesome 30th birthday!

I flew to Baltimore, MD for a couple days of rehearsal followed by the Nuclear Cowboyz first show in 2011. Changes were still being made, but we all still put on a fierce show! Next stop was Dallas. While in Dallas, I had several Nuclear Cowgirlz interviews and appearances. I also visited my alma mater, Arts Magnet High School in downtown Dallas. I caught up with my former dance instructors, and I got to share my dance experiences and offered advice to dance students; it was empowering for myself as well as the students! While in Dallas, I celebrated my 30th birthday over Tex-Mex food with friends and family!

The week before Super Bowl, we had a show in Pittsburgh and the city was full of Steelers support! With snow and ice blanketing the ground, it was very cold and windy. Best part of the weekend was my mohawk created by the talented Nuclear Cowgirl, Victoria Parsons! Girl, you have mad skills and you made me look FIERCE! Be sure to get your tickets in one of the twelve cities we will be touring; you don’t want to miss it! HYPERLINK ""

During the weeks, I was in L.A. I enrolled for a couple casting director workshops so I could keep up with my acting since I placed my weekly scene study class on hold for two months. I also continued my weekly volunteer reading to 2nd and 3rd graders. Also I auditioned for some dance gigs and I even made some time to go out on dates. It was a good start to 2011!
