Chasing the Dream...Day 114

I got a call about the Copywriter gig and they said they are looking at other candidates and thanked me for applying. I sent them a copy of my magazine and the newsletter that I was Junior Editor for and asked that they keep me in mind if it doesn't work out with any of those candidates. I am bummed!

Last night I performed stand-up comedy at Joey's Comedy Club in Livonia, MI and I rocked it! And, I am not lying:) I surprised myself. The entire audience was laughing and it was really cool! I wanted to see if I had the courage and if I could write comedy and I DID IT!!!! Yay me! I am determined to live my life fearlessly and try to be a REALLY versatile writer. I want to be able to write anything. I want to be a "media dynamo" as the title of my blog states. I had friends and family there which also helped me. My support system ROCKS!!! I am really proud of myself and I hope to do more. I will probably do another gig in a couple of weeks.

I gave my internship an ultimatum and asked them if my internship was going to ever be permanent and they said yes. They are supposedly going to make me a Project Coordinator (and give me an office and a secretary, eventually). It sounds too good to be true. And, frankly I won't believe anything until I sign the dotted line. I have had a job or two or three or my life and I know that everything is hearsay until you sign the paperwork. But, I hope they are being straight-up with me because I want to start saving to move out of town. I have to get to the East Coast. I have theater ambitions that are too big for Michigan. It is time to move on. I am leaving it up to God though. Jah always leads me in the right direction and takes care of me when I sit still and listen.

So, I am listening. I'll let you know what I hear.
