Have you ever done the mad run backstage when you thought you knew where your prop was and when you go to grab it, it has vanished?? Have you ever had to improvise because you simply didn't find it in time? 😱
I have! And believe you me it ain't fun! You first have what I call the "oh F^*>!" moment (forgive the language but there is no better way to describe it in my view!). Then you frantically search for it (probably in the most ridiculous of places and/or in the same place a bazillion times even though you know it's not there). All the while asking whoever happens to be within earshot whether they have seen it - only to get blank stares and/or "no" repeated many times. You search until the very last second and you either find it and thank your lucky stars or quickly compose yourself and whisper "you got this" as you walk out onstage prop or no prop. HA!!
You look back at it and laugh. But it sure as hell ain't funny at the time!
I've made "Theatre Problems" a weekly Friday feature on my page. It would be awesome if you shared with me what problems you have come across as a theatre guru or nerd in the comments below. I'd love to hear from you!
Have you ever had a dream come true and you still can’t believe that it’s real?
I dreamed up Brown Girl Brunch years ago when I discovered the incredible world of wellness. While I was so excited to be learning new ideas and growing as a person, I was the only woman of color in many of places I found myself in. It made me uncomfortable. I felt like a token WOC and felt like I couldn’t fully be me. That’s when I became committed to creating spaces of healing and learning for all women, especially women of color.
Brown Girl Brunch is an event that I co host with @shellsloft. It’s a brunch exclusively for women of color to come together and connect over delicious food and strong cocktails. Each brunch has a theme and an empowering speaker. Our next brunch is April 29 and we are featuring the incredible @cyndiespiegel .
As women of color we need spaces to just be. And that is exactly what Brown Girl Brunch is all about. You can leave the code switching at the door and you are free to open up, have fun, and learn.
Tickets are limited, so if you’re interested, grab your ticket now. More info in bio☝🏽 and @browngirlbrunch.
BGB is open to all women who identify as a woman of color and all chicas who identify as femme or female. .
Does anyone working from home have a workspace critter that keeps them company?? We're officially obsessed with this little cutie from @workspacery 😍 Who else has an animal cheerleader for their business? (Perhaps a Desk Life mascot is in order...) #colleaguegoals
Running towards Friday like 🤗 my biggest reason to run at Friday is because I get to step onto the mat not just once but TWICE with you @kalicollective 💛

That dilemma when your bub has had her afternoon nap too early, and she’s starting to get grumpy now, but if you put her down for another nap she will party all night, and if you don’t you’ll be dealing with a cranky baby until bed time! 🤦🏻♀️

**thing of the week**
This is actually from last week but I never got around to posting so congratulations everyone, you get a bonus hit of #thingoftheweek , or as I like to call it: #thing
This one is simply...a moment. Those times when hard work and perseverance pay off and you’re able to take a minute out of yourself and say ‘we did this’. If that moment is spent having lunch at @oblixrestaurant up @theshardlondon in the wonderful company of @harrydyer , all the better.
