Where to begin! If you follow Tina Tassels on Facebook, Twitter, or even Instagram you would have heard that I had some cool things going on last week!
First, I had an interview with ladies who run the recently established New York chapter of Pinups for Patriots and I was chosen to be on the team AND in the calendar!! So honored. I don't have money to donate to organizations and frankly I'm not sure how I feel about it, but this is seems like the perfect something where I can cross 2 bucket list items off: volunteer work and being in a calendar. Cray!!!
Second, I took my first ever Improv class. It was really interesting and super challenging at times. I think the hardest part for me was working off of someone. Ya know, maybe it's not that ,but I felt very put on the spot. And I feel like everyone in the class except for a couple of us were all actors in training. That was incredibly intimidating to me. I feel really comfortable on stage, alone and paying attention to my audience but when I felt a sort of responsibility for my fellow stage-sharer I immediately was closed off. What it has definitely done though is made me eager to seek out and take advantage of every FREE class being offered throughout the city. It was invigorating, to say the least!!
Had a great conversation on Sunday. It was my college roommate's wedding shower and it was perfect. So chic: no games, no present unwrapping, nothing she didn't want. It was a small reunion of sorts and a huge making of new friends. Post-shower we all went out for drinks and the last 3 of us standing ending up having such an intense chat mostly about feeling this itch for wanting more. Of taking advantage of the city we live in, of disciplining ourselves to seek out the things we want. To stop waiting. To stop making excuses. One of my fave things MC said though, was that even if you're working a job you don't really want it is your responsibility to do it and do it well. You agreed to it and owe it to your coworkers to be present 100%. Once you lose that, well it's time to move on. Sheesh, it was an enlightening way to end a great week.
On a stupid note - I need to install my air conditioner. The nights are getting warmer *sigh I love windows open, but I think it's time. My boob sweat seems to breaking records past. My girls are dripping wet. Soaking though my white top,, just begging to be cooled down by an ice cube slowly making it's way over them...
your welcome for the soft core porn.
