Empire State Building, as viewed from Bryant Park, 42nd Street🏙 Aladdin last night was really fun - a little bit pantomime-y, and I didn’t like Jasmine, but I loved everyone else and of course the songs and dancing were all wonderful. We had a dancer from the ensemble come to teach us our MT class this morning and that was really fun, right up my street and we did Arabian Nights which is one of my favourite numbers in the show. For lunch I had proper American mac and cheese in this lovely industrial-style restaurant, and we spent a nice half hour wandering up and down 42nd street looking at all the shops and theatres. After that we had our dance workshop which was lead by the most fabulous lady and we did Hairspray. I had been expressly forbidden by the doctor in A&E to do any dance, but once I got in the studio I couldn’t help myself, and by the end I was leaping around the room and I feel like I’m going to regret it in the morning😂 but frankly, how many opportunities will I have in my life to dance at the Ripley Grier Studios in NYC? It’s worth a swollen ankle, despite the pain. I’ve fallen in love with this city. The east village yesterday was one of the most incredible places I’ve ever been to, and I feel like I would be absolutely comfortable living there in 6/7 years. It’s crowded and loud, but at the same time spacious and soothing. I don’t want to go home tomorrow. I don’t want to face what’s waiting for me in a little box back home. NYC seems frozen in time and I don’t want it to start again. But it doesn’t have to yet. Tonight we’re going to the Ellen Stardust Diner which should be pretty fabulous. Stay in the present moment✨

I wrote a blog post about #OCD. Let's end the stigma! https://ibitthepiranha.co.uk/2017/10/17/stop-saying-youre-ocd-youre-probably-not/

Some periods of our growth are so confusing that we don’t even recognize that growth is happening. We may feel hostile or angry or weepy and hysterical, or we may feel depressed. It would never occur to us, unless we stumbled on a book or a person who explained to us, that we were in fact in the process of change, of actually becoming larger, spiritually, than we were before. Whenever we grow, we tend to feel it, as a young seed must feel the weight and inertia of the earth as it seeks to break out of its shell on its way to becoming a plant. Often the feeling is anything but pleasant. But what is most unpleasant is the not knowing what is happening. Those long periods when something inside ourselves seems to be waiting, holding its breath, unsure about what the next step should be, eventually become the periods we wait for, for it is in those periods that we realize that we are being prepared for the next phase of our life and that, in all probability, a new level of the personality is about to be revealed.
