2020 vision is clear, and goal is unchanged, but the New Year has thrown a few
obstacles my way.
started the year off with a sever cold. Actually I first got sick early in
December, and the cold came back right before Christmas and though I thought I
was getting better with the New Year I am still suffering a terrible cough and
sore throat. The later of course is preventing me from doing any real vocal
exercises, reading aloud, or even singing.
this will pass in the next few days.
next obstacle that got tossed my way was when I went back to work after the New
Year, only to find out that the part time position I’ve held for 9 years is
being eliminated and that by the end of January I am being laid off.
was quite surprised by this bit of news, but at the same time not horrified.
The position had been part-time since the beginning and there was every intent
that I would be finding a full time position elsewhere. It is more surprising
that nine years have passed since I was hired on. The position has evolved and
changed entirely from what it was originally intended to be. I have been very
blessed by the position, the knowledge I have gained from it, and the friends I
the last few years I had come to decision that it was time to move on, but I
couldn’t do that until I had a stable position lined up. So I thought. With
less than two weeks I have to kick my job searching into over drive. It’s not
easy, because I have to find new places to look than I have in the past.
Staying very positive that a job will come soon.
more positive note, I attended my first IMPROV workshop. My ongoing cough
didn’t allow me to participate as much as I would have liked, and the scenes
they set up were more complicated than I had expected for my first attempt, but
all the same it was a great learning experience. Had a good time.
had plans to be part of a one day Voice Over workshop in February, but with my
budget suddenly haltered I will have to postpone that for a while. However, I
had already put a down payment on a six-week course starting in March before
the New Year, and have saved up the rest of the money separately for that.
all things considered I am still have 2020 Vision on my goals for this New
Year, and to be learning all that I can of Voice Over Acting.
now I must also have an equally clear focus on finding full time employment.
my voice will clear up soon, and I’ll be speaking clearly. If for nothing else,
than a few wallas.
appreciate all your support.
