Day 339 – Halloween Rehearsal

Today, I got to spend one of my favourite holidays of the whole year doing one of my favourite things – rehearsing! We had  “make-up” rehearsal from a missed one earlier this week, and it was really fun! It feels like that scene is really coming together and starting to gel.

Also, I put together a last minute costume – Princess Anna from Frozen.

Day 338 – Eating Books

Today, I was off sick from work, so I did something I haven’t done in a long time – I read a book in one sitting. Now, granted, it wasn’t very long. But it was still fantastic! (For those curious, it was The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.) It was also a perfect pre-Halloween read.

Day 337 – Above and Beyond

Today, I proved to myself that I’m not entirely apathetic about work. There was a huge mix up, and I left my house an hour earlier than usual to walk 40 minutes to resolve it. It felt really good to go above and beyond to get something done. That’s how I usually operate, but I thought I had lost that motivation about work. Turns out that’s just an inherent part of who I am, and that makes me happy.

Day 336 – Rotato

Today, I had a Rotato – a spit-roasted baked potato. It was warm, filling, and delicious. Exactly what was needed on the first day that really felt like winter.

Day 335 – Full Complement

Today, we finally introduced our final actor into rehearsals, which means we are now really working as a full complement! It was great to get the last people of the puzzle in place…it’s making me even more excited!

Day 334 – Feet On The Ground

Today, I managed not to get knocked over or blown away by the intense wind. If you were in Edinburgh, you know what I am talking about. It was pretty crazy!

Day 333 – Jam

Today, my husband and I ended up hosting an impromptu jam session! We always say that we need to have more people round to play music, and we finally did it! It was too much fun, and I want to do it again soon!

Day 332 – Getting There Is Half The Battle

Today, I managed to get to the gym, even though I really didn’t want to. I could have happily gone home and plonked myself on the sofa, but instead I walked into the gym, and ended up having a really stellar workout!

Day 331 – Compliments!

Today, I was told by an academic that I work with that I look like Idina Menzel. What a compliment! I have been told that before, but this was a person who isn’t a friend!

He might become one though – it turns out he love musicals, and we spent the day emailing back and forth about our favourites. It’s always nice to get a compliment, but it’s even nicer to make a connection with someone new.

What do you think?

Day 330 – Writing Online

Today, I got the word that I have been published online! As regular readers know, I took a course in Web Development this summer with Thinkful. I have been working with them to write a blog post about my journey, and it’s now live – you can read it here!

I’m really proud, and it’s pretty cool!
