“As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.” - Franz Kafka, The Metamorphosis

Snapshot 17

I turned 24.
I survived the so-called ‘end of the world’.
I made New Years resolutions that I knew I’d be able to keep.
I made myself a promise that this year would be better.
And so far… it is!

Yes, I know it’s only February and it’s too early to say, but this is already turning out to be such a fantastic year. “How?” I hear you ask. Well…. I’m back to dancing classes after a couple of years, taking up Ballet & Tap. I already have acting work lined up in May, an audition for more work a week today & myself and my amazing Mumsy are going to see live the legendary Fleetwood Mac in October!! Not too shabby, right?

Next on my agenda of ‘Making 2013 an amazing year’ list, is finding a flat with my beloved BB [Broadway Buddy, to you] Andy in the big smoke! A big task? Oh yes!! Am I scared? Hell yes!! But I’m 24, I’m responsible and above all… I’m ready. Sometimes, you just know when something is right, an epiphany for one of a better word and when I turned 24 it hit me like a ton of bricks that this would be the year that I’d make the big move. I wish I could tell you how I know this, but I can’t, I just have do it now! Sigh.

Moving on!

This is also going to be a major year for my Mumsy as well, as tomorrow she goes into hospital for foot surgery… It’s nothing serious, but it is something that needs to be sorted. What the surgery will do is hopefully release her of pain when walking in the future, so it’s very important to her that she does this. I know it’s selfish, haha, But I can’t wait for her to be home for the next couple of months!! Ok, I know she’ll be incredibly uncomfortable and in a lot of pain, but it’ll allow myself & my dad to look after her the way she looks after us and everyone else around her! Mushy, I know but V-Day is coming up after all!

Basically, this is going to be a year of change and metamorphosis for the Quinn family [Yes, the whole family… As my dad turns 50 this year! Shhhh!].

Happy Chinese New Year!! Here’s to the Year of the Snake!

Peace & Love.
