Beware the Ides of March

You know how some things stick with you -  A song you used to listen to when you were 16, a favorite sweater you can still feel if you close your eyes tight enough, a bean burrito?  Well, I'm quite sure that long after the z becomes zzzzzzzzz, I will remember A to Z with Meryl and Me.  I learned so much about acting, collaboration and most important, myself.  Not that I'm saying I'm most important but introspection doesn't hurt anyone unless you get kooky with it and then you're not doing anybody any favors.  So what did I learn from Valentines' Day to Valentine's Day?  This is a question I've been pondering for over a month.

I learned that:
Some people are going to love you no matter what you do.
Some won't love you no matter what you do.
It's most important to love yourself and let the other stuff just fall in line.
Everyone's got an opinion and none of them matter, including mine.
Meryl Streep has done a heckuva lot of dramas!
I can learn any accent given enough time and effort.
I have staying power even when exhausted, distraught and starving.
I will continue to learn from this blip in time long after it's over.
and so much more!

I confirmed that:
I want to act more than anything and will continue to do so until I no longer love it.
I'm pretty blissed out just being in front of a camera and working with incredibly talented people which is a restatement of the first thing I listed and if I were to go on I would only find more ways to say the same thing.  I love acting!

Tomorrow I will post the thanks for the X scene, It's Complicated.  Then shortly after will come the Y and Z scene thank yous.  You will then notice a drop off in my posting but be sure to add my blog to your follow list because every now and then I will check in with new developments, press updates and all the wonderful opportunities that come my way because of Meryl Streep and her influence on me.

I just realized my title does not go with my post. I could make up a reason but the truth is, March 15 is one odd date that I remember every year so I guess I just like saying that!

I think that's highly logical.
