Making the "Big Move"

This post was originally published on my handmade jewelry blog, Design by Cassandra, on February 23, 2011.

Well, it's been in the works for quite some time (at least, in my head, on paper and through strategic planning), and now it's finally come to fruition.  There's a time in everyone's life where it becomes a - pardon my French - a "shit or get off the pot" moment, and I've finally hit it.  At the wise, yet tender age of 30 and still blessed with youthful genes, stars are beginning to align, directing me in a path that had been in front of me all along.  For some reason, I had been rebuffing and fighting this road, refusing to acknowledge it and what possible accomplishments I could achieve.  I could really try, it wouldn't be that terrible, and I would be a better person just for trying.

I'm not going to jinx it and tell you, but I'll at least let you know that I've decided to take back a part of my life that seems to be destined for something great, and most importantly, attainable ... at least now, in my current mood, I'm feeling positive about it.  (You should have seen me earlier today, you'd think you were talking to a different person!

This all still scares me, though.  Ultimately, I don't know what will happen.  I have an idea of what I will be doing, what I want to do - "Get a plan, and make it work," my father always says to me.  Well, I've got a plan, so far.  Let's see how well this works.

SHOUT! On The Radio!

We are radio stars!  Thank you, Erin Radio 101.5!

Samantha (that's Sam to me, The Blue Girl to you) gave an interview on Erin Radio's Best Medicine Comedy Show with Ray Young yesterday to talk all things Shout!  Ray has a great gig going himself: not only is he comedy king in one of the most successful community radio stations in Ontario, but he has the coveted role of Daddy Warbucks in Orangeville Music Theatre's production of Annie, playing in June 2011!  It's a family affair with Ray, too - his daughter, Shayna (a very good friend of mine!) will be in the production, as well!

Blogger's note:  On behalf of the reporter, I'd like to correct the names Josh Priess and Cassandra Watsham.  Onward!

This picture was taken when we were goofing off at the piano between breaks, but we gave it our all with lots of gusto and photo-snapping!  Maybe we'll get a chance to see the rest of the photos!
