Temporarily Internetly Homeless
The reality of it however, is that I've been without the internet for the past two and a half days at home (internet and the home phone actually, and we've yet to discover the reason for this outage) ... not counting my cell phone. What this means ... that I've been able to respond to emails etc., but I've not really been able to job hunt or apply for anything over the past few days.
Of course I haven't ceased to function entirely, haha, like some people might. But it is interesting to feel the lack of connectivity in a place one presumes they should have service. I mean, when you know you're not going to be able to get online ... well you know it so you've likely prepared for it. However, when you're without and you didn't know it would be the case, well isn't that "just" when you want to go online to check this or that ... to apply to a job ... to respond to an email more elaborately than patience on a blackberry might dictate? Hahaha! But I digress. Despite the fact that it is actually SUNNY out today, a weather pattern that has been missing the past two weeks here in UpState NY (it's been down right shite for weather lately, over cast and stormy with LOTS of rain), I'm now at a free wifi Starbucks enjoying a Grande Caramel Frap and some internets!!! :o)
I will now go in search of jobs to apply for ... see if there's anything I've got that I can apply for while I'm here (I have Drama Kids in another hour) ... and check some emails, and rather obviously, write up this here post.
Oh and just so you know, not that you really care (oiy, haha), but I haven't just been sitting on my butt at home. I'm reading a new book called "The Magicians", I've had Drama Kids classes, and I've sorted out the summer job overlap, well sort of. I've had to give up the one week job 'here' directing 'Oliver' over the summer. The positive note is that my friend in Seattle might be able to get me 3 more weeks of work. 1 more with the camp I'm already working at in August, and another two with another organization ... details to come ... and cross your fingers 'cause it's great pay!
Ok ... now onto other things.
