The end of week one wrapped up with a couple fun events. I took part in the NFL kick off party in Time Square eating free pizza, playing games, and taking the Pepsi challenge. I eve found myself on a

As much fun as this week has been I found myself very distraught one afternoon finding MY idea for NYC work was stolen! Recap...the evening before my world was rocked I was telling friends how there was the Naked Cowboy, and me being a Native American myself, should create work being the Naked Indian. I would have suction cup arrows to keep the kids safe and I could be part of Cowboy and Indian wars in Time Square...back to reality...WRONG!!! Someone took my idea and already ran with it!
I also finished off my week with a beautiful wedding via Skype to

So yes, this week has been all about exploring
Here I have met up with a couple people I first met while working in
|Yes, that's a ridding crop.|
|Mind you this man was taking pictures and coaching here with a turn, point, and shoot throw away camera.|
|Obvi there this would happen there too.|
Mostly, I have been doing a lot of planned and unplanned thinking and stressing over my current life situations. Many phone calls resulting in tears of happiness and fear, and many reminders that I knew this wasn’t going to be easy or fast. My brother reminded me today, "You need to go back to your roots to see why you are doing this.
I still don’t know when I will be home again next or even what next week looks like. I just know if I don’t give this move my all, I will someday regret not trying or only half assing it. So, in closing, I am happy to report that this morning I received my first call! The wardrobe union and I will be meeting Thursday afternoon for my orientation into the system. A stepping stone that will hopefully bring more good things to come.
Much love and thanks for prayers and good thoughts.
