I haven't been able to blog for awhile. Not that I haven't thought about it or had nothing to share, I just didn't feel like it. I guess you could call it a blogging break.
My life is a little more different than when I first started this blog. Back two years ago, I had aspirations of being on Broadway, working towards being a full time actress, and nothing could stop me. That is until I met the love of my life. Funny how life takes us through turns. I realized that I wanted to be a little closer to where my love was and that I wanted to see where it took me. I'm exactly where I need to be right now. Currently we are going on 2 years and I couldn't be happier. I followed my heart a little more than I usually do and I honestly I'm so happy! :)
Don't get me wrong, I would absolutely LOVE to be in the spotlight either on Broadway, American Idol, or anything else. I love to sing, dance, and act. I'm CRAZY for it but ultimately that can't really pull in the big moolah that I need to seriously get by. I decided to set up shop a little closer to where I grew up and tried out for auditions for local plays and whatnot but nothing ever really came of it. I needed a bigger change something I felt as much passion about other than acting.
In June 2009 I was asked to work a promotions event and absolutely fell in love with it. I loved it so much I became the project manager for the rest of the events in my area. I worked as a project manager for the other events and realized that I'm really good at it and I love working for those types of things. I decided that I need to have a real career goal in mind. It's fine to work towards Broadway and other thins but I do have to make some money. So while working my full time job now I will be enrolling to get my bachelors degree online for Marketing. Oh yeah and did I mention I will be enrolled full-time there as well? I also will still be working part time as the events manager for different projects in my area. I'm also trying to lock down a part time job during some weeknight for some extra cash this summer. Needless to say I'm going to be a very busy girl.
My life is in a new direction now. The love and I are going to be moving in together in a couple of months, looking for a new marketing job in the field that I want to be in, going to college full time, working full time, working part time, manager to somehow have a social life, and hopefully moving to a new state within a year.
I'm honestly excited about all the changes that are going to be taking place. I'm excited for all the unknowns. For the what-ifs and what-nots. I can't wait to start this journey. While I know it won't be an easy one by any means I'm looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead.
While the Broadway chapter isn't completely closed it isn't my entire life now. Now this blog will be still be around and I may write in it from time to time, I'm opening up a new blog. To document the everyday life of regular girl, the everyday struggles, all of life's memories, and everything else in between.
I will still keep this blog open and most likely will post in it from time to time. Check them both out! :)I love you all. I can't wait to share this next journey with all of you. All my love, Sarah

It's been sometime since I wrote on here. I think a few months actually. Lately I'm just so busy or I'm uninspired to write. I'm sorry!
I've been actually quite busy these past few months. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Family Get togethers, planning vacations, getting things done for online school etc.
I promise that soon I'll fill everyone in on my life.
I'm hoping to get back online to update the blog next week so stay with me if you haven't already left. I promise I'll be back.
Love you all!!

Last night B and I went to another show about 2 hours away from M's band. They were fantastic as usual. It was their last stop in my state and then they start finishing up the tour in a few days.
I just love those group of guys. I adore them. They are so fun to be around, nice, genuine, caring guys. I love my new friends!
I was sad to say goodbye to them all but I know that B and I are making our way to Miami, FL this summer to see them there (if they aren't on tour yet) and we'll see M at Christmas time with his new girlfriend! Can't wait!
We didn't get home last night until 3 AM! I was so tired I decided to take off the morning of work and sleep for a good 4 hours.
I'm feeling much better but I def. need more sleep.
The weekend should be fun. I'm going to an Apple Festival and possibly a Pumpkin Festival. I can't wait. Saturday night is girls night and I have off Monday!
I say a pretty good weekend so far.
Well talk to you all later.
Much love, Sarah

I was going to write this fun post about cupcakes but that will have to wait. I feel like I need to write to get my feelings out because right now I feel like a big old jumbled up mess.
B's best friend we'll call him M is in a band. And not any band. They are a HUGE band and not huge like they have a lot of members but HUGE like they are so popular. B and M talk almost every other day and have been friends since they were in elementary school. The band has never played in my state before (well they have but it wasn't the "same" band) so B and I made our way over to see them play (2 hours away) on Saturday night. The band is from Miami, FL and is on tour right now so that was pretty cool to see them play live. I've met M before and I talk to him with B sometimes so that was awesome watching him play. After the show we all got something to eat and I got to finally meet the rest of the guys and really get to know them. We talked for hours all about their careers, how they got started, how they write their music, each others backgrounds, etc. It was so uplifting. These guys work so hard for everything and barely get by right now. They are a seriously famous band in Miami and the rest of FL and pretty much the rest of the South. They talk all about how crazy it is down there and then up here in the northeast they are nothing right now. These guys are going to be HUGE next year as they are in talks to tour with Nickelback next summer. Things will change for them and I can testify that they are amazing talented and awesome. I'm so proud of them!
B and I were talking on the way home about them and how awesome it is that they are doing this. B really wants to find a job and to be "more grownup" but right now it's so hard. He wants to do something equally as amazing. To come back home from living far away and showing people things that he has done. I think that is why partially he wants to be in the Navy. (We still haven't heard anything.) He wants to show people with what he is a capable of and right now he just can't seem to get it going. I was thinking about my life too. I absolutely hate my job right now. I desperately want to leave but I don't have a degree. I want to get my marketing degree so I can travel and do promotions and marketing but I need my degree and right now I'm waiting to hear about funding for that. I feel like I'm just on this see-saw and I can't seem to catch a break.
Today was like a breaking point for me. My job absolutely blows! I am harassed by vendors all day long on the phone and now other agencies in my job just yell all the time at you when they don't even know who you are. I hate my job and I need to find a new one. Ideally my job would be doing event planning/marketing as my full time job. This can happen I just need my degree so I can get that job. My job that is in left field that is becoming more difficult is acting/singing. I would love to make that happen but I couldn't quit my full time job and live off of nothing b/c that's what actors get. It's so frustrating.
Today is just one of those days. One of those days that you look at other people's lives around you and think how they hell did that happen? Why can't my life be like that? I need a change to happen soon. I just need to make it happen. My favorite quote is reach for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars. I just need to remember this and aim high. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day full of enlightenment and wishes. I hope so because this bad mood is really making me more mad.
Till next time, Sarah

I'm back from my Beach Trip. It was a little more adventurous than I would have liked but we did have fun never less.
The weather was great for the first two days and then the next two felt like I was in the Tundra. It was FREEZING!
Some highlighted points (ones that made my trip kinda bad):
- We left later than I wanted to on Wed. Therefore we got there really late and didn't do anything. We ate dinner and went to bed. Wasted Day!
- Thursday we both drank way to much and I got sick. REALLY SICK! I went back to my hotel room and slept till I woke up to find my boyfriend gone. Where was he you ask? Drunk on the boardwalk eating dinner at 9:30 PM!
- When I woke up from my coma and tried to find my boyfriend I reach for my cell phone to call him only to find out that my cell phone was broke. It wasn't turning on. GREAT! Had to use the phone in the hotel room that cost me for long distance. Luckily I got that taken care of at the end of the trip.
- When he got back from his drunken escapades he was so tired he went to sleep. Great a wasted night and I feel sick. The entire rest of the night I was deathly sick. It was miserable.
- Friday morning I woke up to find what looked like a scratch on my cheek. Turns out it was a jelly fish sting. Yes I was stung by a jellyfish on Thursday on my cheek and didn't know it and that's why I was sick the rest of the night from the venom.
- The tundra cold the last two days of my trip. I couldn't go swimming in the ocean.
- I was so tired from the night before (thurs night) that we didn't get to do anything Friday night. :(
- When we left Saturday it was massive raining and my boyfriend was getting angry because he couldn't find the Penn State game. (to top it all off they lost and he was then super angry)
Now I just have to deal with this lovely sting on my cheek that is pretty big mind you, hurts sometimes and the venom can still be in your for a while so sometimes I don't feel all that great. Wonderful!
In other news my mom moved out of my childhood house yesterday and closed on the house today. I'm very sad to leave this house but I'll always have the memories.
and to make life even better I'm still feeling crappy. I have a migraine headache, I'm achy, and I'm freezing cold. I really hope its from the venom still and not that I'm getting sick!
Sorry to be a downer just needed to vent. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

In just a few hours (okay not a few but in about 18 hours from now) I will be driving to the Beach!! I can not wait!!
I really hope its nice weather and not too cold because I wanna soak up the sun (cue in song). B and I were supposed to leave at 6 AM Wed. but since he forgot to tell his boss that he needs Wed. off we can't leave til about 1 PM. That's okay though. I'll have time to sleep in and do my last minute things before leaving.
Tonight I'm helping my mom pack up the rest of her house, while B and my mom's bf help move furniture into her POD. My mom is moving out of our house that we have lived in since I was 3 next Wed. I'm very sad about it but it's just a reminder that a house is just that a house and that the memories are created with your family. After we all get done packing tonight, my brother, my mom and I will spend one last night in the house we have called home. I'm sure we'll laugh and cry but I think it will be good for us to add some closure to our house. My hometown will always be my hometown I'll just have to come visit every now and then. :)
I hope everyone has a great week and weekend and I'll catch ya on Monday!

So this past weekend we went to our Beer Fest. It was part of my anniversary present to my love. We both LOVED it and had so much fun! B had a lil too much fun if you know what I mean! :) We both def. want to go to another one so we are on the search for one soon!
Otherwise this weekend was pretty low-key. Saturday during the day I cleaned my apartment and did laundry. I know super fun right? Sunday I hung around with B until about mid afternoon and then took Izzie(my mom's dog) to a dog show and we had a blast. I'll try to post pictures soon of it. Just have to find some camera cords!
This week I will be taking a blogging hiatus as I will going to the B.E.A.C.H!! I will gone til Saturday/early Sunday and I'm super excited. I know that it isn't the ideal time to be going but it will still be fun and we have a lot of things we would like to do such as a FREE Treasure Hunt of Jewelry and Diamonds (yes i said FREE), Festival, Playing Mini-Golf, and of course eating yummy food. I can't wait!
So I hope everyone has a lovely week! I'll hopefully return on Monday with some exciting details of my vacation!
