The Year in Review

(See also 2007, 2006, 2005, and 2004.)

Take the first line (or so) from the first post of each month of 2008. That’s your Year In Review.

January 2008:
Help me understand this, please.
Now, I’ve not done much “office time” in my working life. (Some. Enough. Believe me; enough. Rolling around on a plastic pad behind a desk gives me hives.)

February 2008:
Introducing our April 2008 Showcase Director!
I am very excited to announce our new director for the April 2008 Cricket Feet Casting Actors Showcase, Chil Kong! (I mean, c’mon, can you have a more badass name than that?!?)

March 2008:
Keith’s b’day
Tomorrow my Keith turns 50.

April 2008:
I love my showcase cast.
I know I say this every time.

May 2008:
You ride in the Humdrumvee. I’m taking the Funvee.
Just bought tickets to see Iron Man again. Second time in under 48 hours.

June 2008:
Experiment: Day Twenty-Eight
What is there to say?

July 2008:
Cricket Feet Showcase! RSVP Now!!
Cricket Feet Casting ACTORS SHOWCASE July 9th & 10th, 2008 — 8pm — FREE The Colony Theatre, Burbank

August 2008:
All or Nothing
I’m stressed. The task(s) of updating Self-Management for Actors is overwhelming at times. I need to simplify, to break it down into much smaller list items, to ask for help.

September 2008:
Twitter has ruined me for blogging.
That’s really all it comes down to.

October 2008:
The Secret to My Success
I was asked tonight (at my most amazing talk at SAG — seriously, it was one of my best-ever speaking engagements and it just so happens they taped it and will be putting up online. Oh, and I looked seriously cute too) what my secret is.

November 2008:
A Brand New Day
Everybody look around
‘Cause there’s a reason to rejoice you see
Everybody come out
And let’s commence to singing joyfully
Everybody look up
And feel the hope that we’ve been waiting for

December 2008:
Bon on The Answer B!tch at E! Online
Hee hee. I particularly love the Ishtar of it all.


What a flippin’ badass year! Yay, 2008! I am posting this on December 29, 2008, the TENTH anniversary of my move to Los Angeles after grad school. (Yes, I also lived here from August 13, 1993 to mid-September of 1994, but this time was “for real.”) I am so thrilled with all the life I’ve lived in this decade! Thank you to everyone who has joined me along for any bit of this awesome journey. I am grateful to you all for your support, love, the lessons, friendship, and general rockstarness. 🙂 Here’s to the next TEN!

Bonnie Gillespie is living her dreams by helping others figure out how to live theirs. Wanna work with Bon? Start here. Thanks!
