in other words...
Posted by D. at 11:44 AM
This is a very strange position for me. I know, deep down that I am supposed to do acting and that is my long term goal. I know that, and I know that I have to pursue it. It's not something that I can idly do, on a whim, whenever my schedule allows. It's something that I have to dedicate time and effort and money to.

Right now I am temping as a receptionist at a capital investment firm of some sort,and the agency I am temping at just called to see if they could send my resume in. I said yes, but I'm not sure I'm looking for long-term work. Although on the other hand. It's steady work. I know what time I have to be up each day. I get paid the same amount every week. I have all my evenings free. I have time to cook dinner, hang with friends, plan for events, go on dates. I can sign up again for my acting class that's on Tuesday evenings. Plus, since the only things I am auditioning for right now are student projects, which generally shoot on the weekends, I can still build my reel. I can still do the work.

I don't know. I haven't been offered the job yet. They just wanted to see my resume. I'm going to try not to leap to any conclusions, especially as I don't know what's happening. It could be anything. They might just want it for their files. I did tell Wendy (the temp agency rep) that I could commit to 6 months. I think that seems reasonable, especially as I have no idea where I will be in 6 months, but this is a strange business. I could be starring in a movie, or still hustling to find Extra work.

God, please guide me through this. If you want me to stay here for 6 months, go back to class, and try to audition and work on the weekends, please make it clear! Amen.
