The Beginning ... 1/11/'11

365 Days ...

For the next year I am going to blog about all the places and job positions that I apply for ... and most likely, all the ways I get told "No!"

You see, for the past two years I have been applying - and all over the country - for any and all jobs I believe I am qualified for. And for the past two years I have heard - almost exclusively - "no" ... in many fashions ... so this year I am going to keep a blog of said applications and their responses ... and see what comes of it!

Who knows what this adventure might bring, perhaps nothing more than a year long dedication to one project, perhaps more.

I will give accurate theatre names and job titles of the things that I apply for, but will keep that info to myself when talking about rejections ...


Here we go!


  1. Well, this could be enlightening - funny - sad - full of great wisdom [wait I said that already]or any of a million other things - will watch to see what happens.

  2. this is an AWSOME idea.
    You know what would give you more material? Job hunting down under.
    And by that I do not mean doing naughty things for a job or money. I mean coming to new zealand where I promise there is no paid theatre work, but epic times to be had!!
