Well no one reads this blog but I will update it, since I haven't written in over a month.

Sooooo I did do the play (in the undisclosed city that isn't New York) and I am really happy I did.  It was not beneath me at all and was a great learning experience.  I had a very dramatic and serious role, which I never had the opportunity do before, and I was really able to stretch myself as an actor.  Although it was unpaid and with a tiny tiny theater company it was the most professional production I have ever been associated with. Plus, I really needed the break.  2010 was probably the worst year of my life, and I really needed to decompress, and just get a way from it all.  But eventually, all good things come to an end.

During the Holidays I was able to get some temp work and was able to work at a few companies.  Two financial and one fashion company.  The fashion company was amazingly cool and the people were nice.  It was a gig that lasted only a day but a super cool experience. The other two were mediocre but I was able to get some money and pay my bills so I'm not complaining.

Since January I have been working hard core to find a permanent job.  I went on three interviews this past Monday.  One interview was to be a receptionist at a staffing agency, the second to be a receptionist at a financial firm, and the third to be a administrative assistant at a media company.  My feedback from the first interview was that I was too professional and too reserved.  What the shit is that?  First of all, lets talk about the woman who interviewed with me.  She left the interview multiple times to speak with someone on the phone. When she apologized I laughed it off, and went back to what we were discussing.  I professionally joked around with her and smiled and laughed.  However, she told my staffing counselor that I didn't have a sense of humor. I'm not sure if she was initimidated by my devastating beauty or my quick wit (ok, ok, I don't believe those were the reasons) but, "'sumpin's up w/ dat". Regardless, I'm sure it wasn't the right fit for me anyway.

The second interview, was seriously the weirdest interview I have ever been on.  I interviewed with two people. One was slightly unprofessional but she was ok.  The other, had the biggest stick up her ass.  Plus she cried before the interview!  Why do I know that? Because her eyes were still red and tearing.  Crazy.  Then as I told her I pursued acting after college, her first question after that was "Why didn't you get a real job after college?"  I told her, "Because I pursued acting."  She responded, "OHHHHH"! RIGHT!!" Then she says, "Well we really need people to be here on time, because I have no tolerance for lateness."  I swear to God, the way she said "tolerance" sent a shiver up my spine.  For a second I thought she was going to slap me.  I thought to myself, this place is CRAYZEE and I haven't heard from them since.

The third interview?  Well the guy had gray crooked teeth and the place smelled so I don't really care about that one.

So that's the update. In a few minutes, I may write another post to keep this thing current.
