Okay, I don’t want to sound dramatic, but I also, really hate lying. I am kind of a dramatic person. That’s just how it is. How did 2018 begin, and how did January fly right by? I have just become aware that 2018 is happening, and we’re already a month in!
I am starting to feel at ease, or as at ease as I ever really am. I am really into my incredible job that my Tokyo wifey Misha totally hooked me up with. I’ll spell it out: she is my saviour. She did the introduction, and I worked my charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent and turned a little wee here and there gig into a full on job. I have to give myself a pat on the back for that one. I am working harder than I’ve worked at a job, but I am so into to. Like, I am taken seriously and have trust put in me. For the first time in my life my opinions and skills are taken seriously. I have never felt this kind of validation, in my life. The managers, producers, and directors actually listen to me, and they are fully aware that I have a way of knowing what will work. After all my years of being underestimated and something of a joke, in the minds of teachers and most of my peers, my eclectic knowledge-base and eccentricities are paying off.
Plus, did I mention that I legit love what I do? Who knew that ever happened. There are times when I am so busy that I can’t think, but it is well worth the stress.
