Gainful Adult Employment
When I ended last theatrical season, I swore to myself that this seasonal work thing was going to stop. I was sick and tired of moving across the country every 7 months, and feeling like I was getting older with nothing permanent to show for it.
So I did not re-accept my contract with my previous employer.
As the summer days grew on, I kept failing to reach a new contract with a full time theatre; and it was looking more and more likely that I would have to see if my position was still unfilled at my old job. (sigh) And one day out of the blue the neighbor lady came over to collect her rummage sale things and she suggested that I check on the Sentry website for a job.
I paused a second and wondered if she was nuts. Sentry is a grocery store; but near my hometown it is also a major insurance company. I thought that neither sounded like they really had a career path for a theatre technician.
Ah, I was wrong. Sentry Insurance owns a theatre. And they needed a theatre manager. And after a long interview process of many candidates, I am the chosen successor for the 'Theatre Manager' position.
My very own theatre, mwa hahahah!
I work 30 minutes from home. Not 1200 or 2000 miles.... 30 minutes. It's.... amazing!
So, that's what I have been up to. That and scads of knitting. Oh, and Hat Attack. Dear goodness. So much catch up blogging to do!
