February, being the shortest month, I knew I had to take full advantage of my time. I spent the cold, snowy, buried days as a hermit, constantly applying for jobs and looking into studios on the West Coast. I watched the Superbowl from the White Mountains, the Olympics from my parents couch and also almost completed the entire Showtime series of Dexter. Needless to say, I'm ready for fresh air, the color green, a change of pace and a gym membership!
Fingers crossed, March, I've got goals to meet!
I also want to continue sharing my favorite songs and while I'm talking about television, I may as well confess... I'm also completely obsessed with American Idol again. I've only seen a handful of seasons and haven't watched since Meme passed away. The new judges (Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick JR) are what drew my attention this go-around. And I love being a part of such an exiting journey these talented kids are on as they shine, grow and live in the spotlight for a few months. I wish them all the best of luck but I've got to give a personal shot-out to New Hampshire native, Alex Preston. I'm thrilled Mount Vernon, New Hampshire is back in the papers in a positive light. Much love!
Here he is singing an abbreviated version of Damien Rice's song, Volcano during American Idol Rush Week to make the finals. Alex is currently in the top 11.
