So much to do, so little time

So much going on, don't even have time to breathe, much less write. My life seems to go through phases of nothing, followed by phases of anything-that-can-be-packed-in. Right now, it's packed in. I've been slated to nanny this week, on top of barista-ing for a while now. Then I got into a show that has rehearsals this week before I open as Alice next monday. Then, realizing I was never going to make it financially on my hourly pay, filled out an application to waitress, got hired after the shortest interview ever, and started right away, which also happened this week. So. I go from one thing to the other, often changing clothes in my car at stoplights.

The TPS general audition was this week (read - cattlecall!). I did my two minutes in between Nanny-Field-Trip Day and 2nd-Day-of-New-Work. I think it went well. I did a monologue from Proof, and my song from The Music Man -- that one usually goes well for me.

I also had another interesting audition this week, for a childrens theater company. I almost didn't go - since I'm so busy now I don't know where I'd fit something in. But I'm finding with acting, you never really know what'll happen next, so best to be overbooked in the short term, with continuous employment in the long term, than have to do the auditioning round in a panic after your show ends. Other than finding myself very interested in their next season of shows, they also caught a typo in my resume that would have gotten me blacklisted in Seattle had I not changed it (The typo listed my current show as the "Children's Theater" not "Children's Museum" - two separate entities. That could have been BAAAAAD!

That's all I've got time for. Tomorrow is a three job day. Then, I hope, I'll have Saturday night off -- at least, I do so far.
