An Epiphany

I was just watching a preview of tonight’s episode of Smash – one where Bernadette Peters sings Everything’s Coming Up Roses from Gypsy – and I came to a realization. The essential tragedy of my life is that I want to be Bernadette Peters (or Loretta Devine) when I grow up  and I am just not fabulous enough to pull it off. *sigh*

I have also realized that perhaps the inspiration behind all of the posts I have been writing today has less to do with how fascinating my life is and is more a reflection of how desperately I am trying to avoid working on an assignment that I strongly suspect is trying to kill me. Usually, I am fairly good at writing papers and don’t get too anxious about it but for some reason, this assignment has been a horrific experience. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that it will all be over tomorrow, for better or for worse.


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
