Hello to my fierce and intelligent tribe!
Long time no see right?
Well it's officially relaunch time and I am beyond excited to be back writing again on my little piece of the internet.
For those of you who have been a part of this tribe for a while now, welcome back and thank you. I wouldn't have a blog to relaunch if it weren't for you all. I can't tell you all how much it means to me every time you reached out expressing your excitement for the relaunch or sharing how you loved when I was honest about how about I dropped a prop onstage (#OnlyHuman). I even had an amazing heart to heart with someone who expressed how seeing me chase after my dreams inspired them to chase their dreams. I am truly shocked at how much of an impact this blog has made without me even realizing it and I'm ready to fully dive into that aspect of it (keep reading 😉)
And for those of you who may be new here, let me start off by saying, welcome to the tribe. I am so glad you are here and are interested in reading what I have to say.
This blog started my senior year of college and I officially became the Tipsy Theatre Traveler the summer after I graduated. What started as a way to keep my friends and family updated on my whereabouts, quickly grew into a resource for theatre artists to learn from both my successes and short comings in this industry.
And because the Tipsy Theatre Traveler has grown from being my blog to being my brand, it's time for a little upgrade.
Why the fresh start?
I had a rough first half of 2019. Ever since graduating college I have been moving from town to town and job to job. By the time I build a routine, establish myself, and make friends, I move to the next place. After doing this for a year or so, I thought I finally found a place that could be "home" for a little bit longer. But an unhealthy living situation (and a lot of snow) led to anxiety, stress, and self-doubt. I was overwhelmed about everything and nothing at the same time. I stopped blogging. The moments I was the happiest was often times the moments I was not there, but in my city. And now it's officially my city. My home. I'm officially an (employed) resident of New York City and I could not be more thrilled. This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember and I am getting emotional just thinking about it. There are going to be ups and downs, but I'm so glad to have a home base and the decision to rebrand was primarily because of this move.
But, as always, I am a girl on a mission. I've got so many goals, ideas, and content I want to put out into the world for you.
My mission is to empower theatre artists to live their life to the fullest potential. I hate seeing peers, friends and even mentors hold back on their dreams and not be their authentic selves because of how they think it will impact their career. I hope to give artists the tools they need to overcome the three most common excuses: I don't have time, I don't have money, and I am not good enough. I’ve made these excuses for the past few years, until recently, when I realized life is to short to keep making excuses. I invite you to join this tribe of incredible artists looking to make their mark on the industry through community rather than competition.
So what do you say, are you in?
Much love always,
