My body hurts all over the place right now. I have bruised, cut, scraped myself; just about any other injury you can think of I have. This was the opening weekend for the show at the park and I was there for all three days.
My shoulder is very sore right now because I had to run from my position to try and quickly retrieve a microphone for the emcee. On my way to the microphone, I nicked the stairs on my shoulder pretty hard and it hurt! Right as I was approaching my problem, I saw my foreman taking it out to the emcee and thus I wasn’t even a solution to the problem I created. If only I had remembered to set the microphone in its place right before the show started, I wouldn’t be feeling so bad right now! And so, for the rest of the evening, I was constantly reminded not to forget that set again. It was quickly annoying but I understand why she was being that way.
I am happy to report that I will hopefully be back in Houston next Wednesday. I will be able to spend a week there working a little, playing a little, going out with as many local friends as possible, and eating way too much Tex Mex and Blue Bell. I am SO very much looking forward to that trip because it’s going to be a long while before I can get to Houston again after this.
This will be a short week for me in terms of work because I’m off ALL WEEKEND! Yay for me. I will finally be able to commit some time to some web design projects that I keep putting off. Once they are completely finished, I plan on using this in my portfolio to pitch to more people for work. I think designing could be an excellent way to supplement my unforgiving low income I make right now. In the meantime, I’ll be enjoying my internship and possibly looking at getting into some acting if possible.
Speaking of which, I was in a better position of doing some walk-ons for TV shows when I got here than I am in now. So it’s highly unlikely at the moment that this will happen. Hopefully, however, I will meet some nice people who will like what I have to offer and take me on. I don’t consider acting to be a career for me at this point, but I am very interested to try it and see if it can take me anywhere.
It’s difficult to hold such high expectations for establishing myself out here and try to get settled at the same time. I am not where I thought I would be by now in my life, especially since I am college educated, and struggling for money doesn’t help. But, as I think about it, I’m happy to be here. I am starting to learn where I could possibly be in a few years with my internship now and the possibilities look very decent. As much as I sometimes think about it, I can’t give up yet. I am determined to move on and get where I want to go. And I’ll keep you updated on my whereabouts when I can.
