This morning is set back by lack of hot water as I try to breathe through the compounding wieght of an empty bank account and full schedule. An overwhelming response to my resumes have this weekend packed with auditions and a film shoot and a last minute attendance to a networking mixer landed some extra opportunity.
Scheduling work and meetings with photographers and directors is an appealing alternative to the consumerism pull of the holidays not to mention the temptations of making myself sick from eating too much. I'm sorry to say, but not too disappointed by the fact that I will not purchase a single gift for anyone. I am, in a sense, forced to keep my atttitude of gratitude for every meal and every dependance on God for my provision. The greatest gift would be for me is to say that I have recieved numerous creative, paid, opportunites that would keep my schedule full.
And so I get started, again, on the preparation and exercise, the study and the searching. Somewhere along the way, I will take a shower.
