Rare and Random Update

July 11th, 2011 (11:04 am)

So, what's been happening in my chaotic and crazy life? Reading over my last post (six months ago! Wow!), I see not a whole lot has changed. I'm still working at the store, still working up front. I've seen people come and go, I've seen people replace them. I've made a lot of good friends, fallen in crush, fallen out of crush, laughed, cried, complained, and comforted. The company has started a new policy in which the fastest checkers get the most hours. I'm one of the fastest, so I routinely get 35+ hours, which is nice, but it is quite exhausting, and it is not fair at all to the ones that get (I am not kidding) 8-11 hours. I very much disagree with this policy, as do everyone else at the store, even the manager. Because the company is putting so much stock in speed, that is what everyone else is concerned with, and customer service and employee morale are suffering.

I got to do Chicago this spring. That was beyond amazing. I ended up playing 4 or 5 different parts, including a couple of guy parts. That was interesting. If I never see another ACE bandage in my life, I will be happy. My director was a bitch, and I absolutely hated ever moment working with her; if she ever does another show, I probably won't audition for it, unless it is something I really want to do, like Wicked or RENT, but I seriously doubt the Sunrise Beach Little Theater would ever do something as complicated as the former or as risque as the latter. The next show we are doing is a 5 woman show, but all of the women are older, as the play progresses they age from 40-70, so I don't think I will be cast in that one. The December play is always the children's theater, so, unless I take some backstage role (which I very well might do), I won't be back onstage until *March* Ugh! But it gives me a little down time, to recharge and recuperate.

I guess that's all the major events of the last 6 months. I finally started writing again, though anything I've done the last couple of weeks is crap, and it's almost an embarrassment to post, but I figure, if I write enough, I will force myself back into semi-productive literary prowess. Pray for me...
