I have been intending on posting more often, but nothing groundbreaking has happened yet. As soon as I get my new headshots, I am in with the agency. They have an excellent photographer coming to town that they have worked with for a long time. However, the person requires that clients pay the entire amount for the photo shoot before it’s even happened and there would be no way to get a refund. While I understand the reason for this, I decided it would be better to go with a local photographer that could have me pay them once I’ve received the service and from whom I could get a refund if needed. I’ve sent the photographer websites to the agency and I’ll see what they say.
I am signed up with the Friends of Southwest Shakespeare on Meetup.com. They are one of the Equity theatres in town. I got to help set up for their annual gala auction. I’ve helped my mom with a great deal of auctions and fundraisers. I very much wanted to help during the gala, but they had plenty of people to do that job. I got to meet some of the board members and some other very nice people. I had such a fun time helping out. I got in touch with the artistic director again about auditions, as he had requested. And I haven’t yet received a response, but that is perfectly understandable.
I have gotten a few tutoring clients, but not enough yet to be making that much money. And I have one little job tomorrow after I meet with one of my clients. It’s through one of the 8 staffing agencies I have now joined. Yeowww!
I’m also auditioning for the Arizona Opera Company on March 19. I had better get to practicing for that even though I’m somewhat busy this week. I am also flying home to Vancouver, WA this Saturday to visit and for my grandpa’s and my own birthday. I was my grandpa’s birthday present.
Sadly, we lost a dear family member last week: my mom’s cousin. She died after a long and awful battle with breast cancer. I hate cancer so much. I won’t be able to make the funeral though I really wanted to be there.
I hope to have some insanely good news to report soon.
