1.I'm working for Calphalon as a "temp" or sometimes i'm referred to as a "contract employee" none of this makes any difference as, either way, i'm making $10/hour. But i like 98% of the people i work with and it's an easy commute, so I can't complain. We even get to dress up for halloween. What?
2.Currently trying to get my artistic life back on track. I had lost my way until the end of Korea. So now, with the unfailing support of my awesome boyfriend, i'm reaching back out to the parts of my life that I hadn't really kept up with.
Theatre: i'm in a musical called The Last Five Years at the New London Theatre in Snellville...it's running through next weekend. It's one of my favorite shows ever, so I think it's a good way to introduce myself back into the performing world. I'm also taking improv classes at Dad's Garage Theatre in Inman Park. If you've never been there, you should go there. They're awesome folks.
Visual Art: a few months ago I had the opportunity to put some artwork in a show at The Highlander in midtown called Skywalk With Me. it was a Star Wars inspired art show it was awesome. A rollergirl bought
which was really exciting.
Then we got a chance to paint a Creative Loafing box for the tie-in with the Dali Exhibit, which turned out

Photography: This one is sort of come-and-go, but I really enjoy it so much. Lately the only things i've done are taking some headshots for a friend of mine and taking pictures of a friend's graphic design for her website. But I have this portfolio that i'm working on, and I don't think it's half bad.
3. Living in town is the best. I think it's one of the main reasons I've been getting so re-involved in things. Until this past July, I hadn't lived in downtown Atlanta since I was 19. So it was a welcome homecoming that i had been waiting for...for a long time. I must take advantage of all of the things our awesome city has to offer. one of which is
4. Food. I've become more of a foodie than I ever was. Within a budget, i seriously want to try every single restuarant in Atlanta that looks even remotely interesting. My favorite of recent? Hankook Taqueria. It's Korean. It's tacos. It's Korean Tacos. and it's brilliant and wonderful. go there.
Apparently this entire post is about plugging things. plugging myself, plugging restaurants and theatres. But really...i think it should read more as an expression of how amazingly happy I am to be back in this city. There is something magical about Atlanta.
So who's up for some exploring? I think Sublime Doughnuts is next on my list. ehh?? let's go!
