My coworker Stacey brought a giant box of pastries into my office first thing this morning. Words cannot describe what a delightful start that was to my Friday. I made an extra cup of coffee and sipped and munched and YES.
I didn’t do my meal prep stuff this past weekend and I’ve been struggling all week because of it. For a while, I was on a roll with prepping meals for the week on Sunday mornings, but I’ve definitely fallen off the wagon. I need to get back on, quick. Buying lunches every day (plus dinners on rehearsal days) is causing me to spend way too much money.
I think I’ve decided to audition for only one show this summer, and will only accept a lead role. Like I’ve said before, stating that I’ll only take a lead role makes me feel like a total schmuck, but I just can’t commit to another three months of rehearsals unless it’s a lead role. I don’t anticipate getting this particular role because I’m not right for it physically, but I need to practice auditioning more so that it’s less stressful for me, and going into an audition where it’s not super high stakes emotionally will be good for me. I’m mostly looking at it as a practice audition at this point.
Do you bring your lunch to work, or do you buy lunch?
