Less of a Blair, More of an Elle

October 21, 2015

Maybe it’s because I’ve started instagramming affirmations or maybe it’s because I realized that I needed to do something to counter-balance my resting bitch face, but either way, this has been a particularly Elle Woods-y week, and it’s only Wednesday.

Tonight I have my first ever BU auditions today, which basically just means that I’ll be performing a one minute monologue for a room full of people who know me. I’m excited, but also know that, regardless, things will play out how they do and I suppose that I’m as ready as I’ll ever be when it comes to that!

Monday evening I took my first ever test (I guess it’s a week of firsts!) in law. For me, this class is a huge make or break sort of thing. I told myself months ago, when I overloaded on credits just to take it, that if I enjoyed it, I’d seriously consider getting onto the pre-law track. Well here I am, loving it and looking to declare myself as the first ever pre-law acting major! Hello, Harvard? You called?

Tuesday was just about as equally as exciting! I adore weddings which, if you follow me on Pinterest, is pretty clear! That being said, about a month ago I applied for a job as a part-time bridal consultant at a small bridal boutique on Newbury. Several interviews later, I found myself in the store shadowing and accepting the job on Tuesday evening! While I have no idea what this will lead to, I’m thrilled to get started and so so SO happy to have found a job that I already love. But no worries, I won’t try to tell you last year’s dress at this year’s price! Bah Dum Tiss (please laugh, I’m funny)

All joking aside, I’m in love with my life right now. I believe that there’s beauty and opportunities everywhere and I’m certainly lucky to have found the ones that I do have. Coming back to Boston was difficult after a summer in Phoenix, but I finally feel like I’m making the most of it. It’s rare that I have a second to breathe and take everything in, but last night I sat down, took a deep breath, and smiled because I can feel myself growing where I’m planted rather than hoping the wind will take me somewhere else. And that is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

Xo, Willa
