I need to catch up on sleep so just a little post with lots of pictures this time. So much has gone on over the past fortnight that all I can really say is:
I have had the support, love and encouragement from some incredibly inspiring people as I have plowed though 17 consecutive 10-14 hour days.
I have filmed a two week commercial shoot with one of my longest, funniest pals by my side
Had my photography featured in a tech magazine (yep, I didn't see that coming either- the power of the #selfie eh?)
Stayed up past 6am. Twice.
Had the Renault campaign I modelled for be advertised in Stylist magazine
Been featured in a Wrangler and Kimbra music video/commercial collaboration
Had my writing debut at Siberian Lights + Blue Ash's Lets Talk About Sex, Baby jukebox night and performed my piece Never in a line up of some insanely impressive actors and writers
Had a man jump out of a wardrobe at me on an ITV Commercial
Rehearsed two of my own pieces for a new all female comedy night
Played in the fountains at 11 o'clock at night near Kings Cross
Met some insanely cool people who I'm looking forward to spending more time with
Started managing a jungle themed cinema
Attended a couple of brilliant castings
And eaten lots of brisket topped nachos
My life is inexplicably wonderful. Even when amongst all the fantastic fun stuff I had my first panic attack in over 2 years. I had to be rescued from Waterloo by one of my #PPHQ squad who came in a heartbeat. Sometimes it all just gets a bit overwhelming but having the time to breathe is necessary. Even if you're forced into it. Taking a step back and enjoying the madness is vital to appreciating it.
So yes I am thankful for so very many things. For the abundance of photos and videos of my niece and nephews that now have taken over my phone gallery, the throbbing pain in my feet, the 6am wake ups, for Iceland £2 fry in 8 minute meals, the wanted posters and I miss you texts from friends. I am elated with the madness of this life I lead and I thank you all, even if you are just a passing reader of this blog, thank you for being part of it all.
