Okay, I know I said I was going to do a random news post last Saturday, but the personal thing that happened last week kicked into high gear literally the day after my last post.
Some major BS happened that basically took all of my focus and my complete attention away from everything.
And when I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!
I spent many nights not in my bed and staying up until 2 in the morning (which normally wouldn’t be a big deal) then waking up at 7 in the morning.
Now I hear you regular 9-5ers snorting in amusement, but let me add this caveat: From 7am-2am I was in a constant state of emotional distress of varying levels.
I should re-emphasize that this distress was not due to something immediately affecting me, but came from trying to comfort and help my friend through a very difficult and surprisingly teetering time.
I am not in ANY way upset about doing this. I care very deeply for my friends and will do everything in my power to help them. But this was something I had very little knowledge on how to solve or help. What I did know was that my friend needed me and that was more important than all of the other things I wanted to focus on this past week.
I don’t think I’ve ever felt so…jet-lagged without the actual jet part. I lost track of time. It feels like it’s been a month since this all started.
Out of respect to my friend’s privacy I will absolutely NOT discuss it on here. My only regret is that I have rehearsals starting next week and the week after that I will be on a cruise ship. I won’t be able to do anything beside texting my support and that bothers me.
I’m going to try to make up for this lack of posts next week with a random news post on Saturday, a post a day detailing the rehearsal process, AND a post a day the following week on the cruise which is also a writer’s conference…as much as I can….not sure how dodgy the internet will be…
Anybut……..here’s a tip for the day/life. Communication is the MOST important thing in any and ALL relationships.
