I did, however, get savaged by the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival judges at their feedback session. Nearly all the negative criticism about the performances were aimed at me, which was highly discouraging. I had been saying I wanted constructive criticism, that friends always say, "Oh you were great!" no matter what...so I wanted someone to give me a review that included what needed improving, as well as what was worth sustaining. Well, I sure got it. And then some, and more than I needed or wanted. Next I will tell people that I need some real, honest, vigorous lovin'. Maybe I'll end up with too much of that, too.
And now, after getting rested, finally - I'll get back to the gym and get serious about whipping myself back into shape. I think my next big goal will be another triathlon - that served admirably for motivation in the past.
