Update and Re-Post

Long time no post. Things are going well on my end, although I'm just about to drop into the madness that is tech week so if I don't see you on the other side, know that I always meant to pay you back that $15 I owed you for the group purchase that we made for that guy that one time. Really.

I always get a pang right about this time of year because I remember that I have to send out a million resumes or else I will be living in my car and eating beans out of a can come October. Filling up the period between when Shakespeare Santa Cruz closes and when the audition tour starts up again is always a hustle, but I have promised myself that I will not go back to working retail again unless I am desperate. It's soul crushing, no joke.

Luckily, it looks like I will be working straight through the end of August and going immediately from show to show every month (with the exception of December), and I may even be able to work a day job or do another show between October and the end of November (I'm only working rehearsing nights most days). And shocker of shockers - I'm getting paid for all of it. Maybe not much, but getting paid nonetheless.

So that's about where I'm at - I'm trying to avoid the 3 week slump, when you're just about to go into tech week and your patience for bullshit is wearing thin. So far I'm succeeding. Remembering to eat helps with that, I've found.


On a completely different note, I read this funny post today at Dooce.com titled La Vie En Janice and it cracked me up - I couldn't immediately think of a Janice in my life, but I'm sure most of us know one.

Ta for now...

Wow, that was an AWESOME post. I certainly can't think of any Janices I know, but I think the anonymity may be part it, I mean, a friend offers you advice cool, but when a stranger does it or is invested it, bam! Janiced!

But hey, who can say, cool read though.

Love the Janice article. The vast majority of our patients here at the optometry office seem to be various degrees of Janices... every day is an adventure.
