“Look around! Look around at how lucky we are to be alive right now!”
I know it’s a day late, but here’s my List, which includes why it’s late.
BroadwayCon 2017. From Friday through yesterday, I was in “the greatest city in the world!” attending BroadwayCon. It is an amazing convention to go to if you are a fan of Broadway. I’m still unpacking the weekend, and I’m sure I’ll post about it once I have the chance to. So many amazing panels and experiences and people. I’m still getting overwhelmed when I think about it.
Hamilton: An American Musical. Yes. I finally went! Another amazing part of the weekend that I’m going to be unpacking for a while. And, again, there will be a post, but it’s not going to be too involved because there is so much about it that cannot be described!
Hell’s Kitchen. Yes. It’s geeky, but I am so excited that my hotel was in Hell’s Kitchen!
Brooklyn! I have family in Brooklyn and spent an amazing Saturday evening with them. But, again, geeking out, not because of Captain America, but because of Freestyle Love Supreme (Episode 4: The Great Debate)! But seriously, it’s wonderful there and they do have some of the best ice cream I’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting! And it’s always great seeing family.
My health. Like I mentioned before, I had a cold. I managed to jump up and down on it until it finally went away. It reminded me that we cannot take our health for granted.
My husband. I missed him like crazy, but he’s always so supportive. The only time he questions me is to make sure I’m not doing something that I either can’t afford or would be dangerous.
Quarters. I mean the coin. I know. Boring. But because of the trip I can now do 3 loads of laundry! The little things are just as important.
Broadway Cast Recordings. My playlist to get me to and from NYC was almost nothing but cast recordings. I also had my annotated Hamilton soundtrack and The Hamilton Mixtape. It made the drive so much more fun!
Remember to “look around” and remember and realize “how lucky we are to be alive right now!” It may seem like there’s not a lot, but there is if you look the right way.
