No I didn't.

Today's no is really rather simple, NO I didn't do any job hunting or job applications today.


Some days it is very hard to keep motivated in this bloody field.
I've been working in - or studying - theatre for 13 years ... when is it going to feel like it, like I've actually accomplished something?
Some days I can see how much I have done and all the places I've been and things I've learned and experienced. And some days it feels like I am just another fish - a tiny little smelt, swimming next to a million other identical little smelts ... who would ever notice 'that one'?

So now I remind myself that I've just gotten a job, and a good one at that. A job that will also, hopefully, help me network some more both inside and outside the particular theatre I'll be working with. And I remind myself of all the theatre I have done - internationally - and all the places I have been ... and that I have good ideas, and that if I keep on keeping on ... perhaps, one day (SOON PLEASE) something "big" and "awesome" and "perfect for me" will happen.

I really am awesome, PERFECT JOB GOD'S ... find me and HIRE ME, please!!!
