So, I sort of forgot to come around these here parts for the past few weeks - mostly because I've been roped into the evils of Facebook. What I find so fascinating, is the number of people I've found that I haven't seen for twenty years. It's really neat to see where people have gone, what they've done - I guess I'm fundamentally a nosey person. I like to think my nosiness stems from a more wholesome, innocent curiosity though, rather than the more common malicious variety. I really do love people, despite what my naturally reclusive state might tell you.
Not much has happened since I wrote last. I haven't had anymore big paying dance gigs (with the exception of a Korean festival a few weekends ago, and that was just a small bit of $). Costuming, cleaning and decluttering, writing, and rehearsing - that's about it. I did start working on a website for Rahma, which sparked inspiration to finally rip my own website apart and make it new, and pretty, and shiny. She surprised me with a beautiful costume piece as a thank-you: a large, gold and purple cape, that was passed down to her by another dancer. I was speechless. I certainly hadn't expected anything for working on the site, and I especially wouldn't have expected a hand-me-down from her fabulous closet of awesomesauce costumes.
I really want a Timmy Ho's coffee and a bagel right now. Zomg. Okay. After this entry. Down, stomach. Down, boy.
Relic is hiring. Again. This time for office/department assistants. I sent my resume and cover letter in last Monday - haven't heard anything though. I realized that my first interview with them, back in April, I think I came off as a bit too 'office generic' since it was my first corporate'ish interview in quite awhile. In retrospect, I really didn't show them enough of me, and what makes me awesome, and completely perfect to work there. So I took a leap of faith and wrote the most ridiculous, silly cover letter I think I've ever written in my life. I wrote donut haiku*. I actually said 'awesomesauce'.
Maybe that's why I haven't heard back? I hope not. I'm not giving up hope that easily.
Either way, if I don't hear back, I'll be starting with Intelligence again next week - which pretty much destroys my chances of doing anything dance related between now and December. Acting classes will again be postponed, because although I will have the money, I won't have the time. Don't get me wrong - I don't begrudge having some work, and it's not that I completely dislike working in film, it's just that I'd really hoped to focus more on transitioning some of my likes and hobbies a bit more into the 'career' folder this year.
Oh well. I'll keep my fingers crossed that I at least get another interview with Relic.
That's about it. I'm sorry, Mr. Blog - I'll try not to cheat on you again. At least, not too much.
*The donut haiku was in relation to a very important part of the position. The fellow who is moving up from this position, was previously responsible for writing Friday office e-mails announcing the arival of the Friday donuts. This was my silly spin on his previous sillyness.
