Resource Girl

Missing in Action

May 26th, 2009

Yes it is true the Resource Girl took a respite for approximately the last five months. However, I want to assure you that come June the 1st, I will be back in action.

New York City is one of the most alive places in the summer. I don’t think there is any other place in the world where you can visit so many events for free. The streets and parks begin to vibrate with outdoor concerts, art shows and street fairs. One of my favorite things I ever saw was at the Fringe Festival, there were iceskaters in a small park when the degrees outside was more than 80 degrees. They placed these plastic pieces that had a frozen liquid substance on top and they iceskated. The theatrical piece in itself was forgetable but not the fact they were iceskating in the thick of the summer.

As mentioned before, for the past 5 almost 6 months, I have lived in LIMBO. No, not Dumbo, that is an actual place to live, LIMBO is a state of being where there is no past and no future. No I am not being pessimistic or dramatic. For me LIMBO LAND has consisted of seeing what is in front of me without looking at my watch or at my calender. I have always prided myself in having goals and a calender that reflects those goals. Currently my calender has the weekend taken care of, I am going to the Book Expo, and after that, well, I want to work my arse off, but other than that…

In these strange moments of LIMBO I am tasting my food more, I am noticing people’s expressions more, I really am living more in the moment. If I were to return to acting, yes, sometimes it does enter my mind, I think this time will be really helpful in that artform or in any other art form. Present in the moment, living fully in the moment, thanking God or the Universe for that moment, without regret for the past mistakes or anxiety for the future.

In June I will be posting free activities so that we can all manage in some way to enjoy our life, even in an economic crisis. I look forward to celebrating life with all of you this summer.

All the best,

RG

The Resource Girl has worked a ton, now she is going to have some fun.

In June watch for exciting updates about the diversity that this city offers.

Random tips: I found a chinese place on 34th, near the Wendy’s close to 8th Ave, where you can buy 5 items to eat for 5 bucks! Starbucks has a new combo offer, look for that.

Random things: Cock Roaches are gross. If you are thinking of moving here, it is one of the hazards.

More randomness: We did not have a Spring this year, the weather has been horrible.

Coming out of work coma

May 8th, 2009

Okay so if any of you were wondering where did the Resource Girl go…well she was taking her own advice and was working hard. Hostessing for the first time, (if I could have worn flats, wow I could have stayed for months, but after nights of crying from the shooting pain in my legs from the high heels, I moved on), doing research…mmm…yeah that was interesting, if you know me personally you know just how interesting…ho hum, yawn yawn and this week it was back to what I do best i.e. being super silleeeeeee and they pay meeee. Yes I was in Times Square in a onesy promoting www.sleeptonight.com. It was warm and since the weather here has sucked mama cow teets, was greatly appreciated.

Smiles to everyone

Expect more info about this crazy, wonderful, nutty city, very very soon. I promise to never got this long without writing. I promise.

Ciao,

RG
