Today's Bit

NO's ... well, only 1 of the 5 applications I put out there on the 11th was even responded too, happily it was a positive one and I will be having a phone interview next week. The other four applications I sent out, well they appear to be silent no's - this happens alot! C'est la vie!

I was busy today with things other than applications.
Selfishly my morning was spent absorbed in a book I was very close to the end of, and so I sat and read it.
Then I had to prep for my Drama Kids classes in the evening (I am a part time drama teacher with Drama Kids International), as well as a "lecture" that I will be giving tomorrow on my time in Bali, and Balinese Performing Arts. The lecture will be given to an IB Theatre Class at the local High School. Can't wait for that!

I do have two applications that I am working on right now, but they both require online applications - and I don't mean email - as well as a bit more info than "simply" eamiling a cover letter and resume, so I'm in the process of these and will give more info when they're done.

On a super sweet note, last night I found out that a good friend of mine out in Seattle has gotten me 3 weeks of work as a drama teacher / director, for a summer camp. Woo hoo! I've never been to Seattle, and I haven't seen her in almost two years!

That is all. For now. :o)


  1. Questions,
    1) what was the book
    2) when were you in Bali?
    3) seattle??? AWESOME!! can I come?

  2. Answers,
    1.) The book's called "Awakened" and it's the 8th in a series known as the 'House of Night' Novels. {Vampires. Teen Novels. Addictive. Fun.}
    2.) I was in Bali back in Nov/Dec 2008, it was my final module for my MFA. AND IT WAS AMAZING!!!!
    3.) Yes, Seattle! :o) And I so totally wish you could come. However, it's not a camp like SDM, it's day camp style.

    Oh, and you KNOW I'm always on the look out for a job - or any other way - to get my butt down to NZ! Let me know if you ever come accross something I should apply for. :o)
