No surprise that I've been busy right? Yesterday I rode all the way (an hour) to Far Rockaway for a job interview. While I was leaving the placement agency I looked up and what do I see? I'm right up under the Empire State Building! There was a street fair going on as well. I would have stayed and gawked but I was on a mission. Plus, I hate being around stuff with no money. It smelled like a party! All the Meat! Do I sound fat? lol
Lucky for me I stopped by the deli by the shelter and got a lunch. I ate some as soon as I got on the train platform. Turkey sandwich, Pringles and a granola bar isy normal meal now a days. Healthy right? Meh. The ride was long. I was so scared to drink the gatoraid that I took sips. This bladder has embarrassed me enough to be very careful. lol I interviewed for a management training position at Aarons Rental. It was in a strip mall that could use some remodeling.
All I did on the train was read and go over my lines this AMDA audition Saturday. I did get to see a different set of performance though. Some guys dancing for money. lol not the private kind. Once back at the bed I am so nervous that I keep distracting myself with Zuma on my phone. I'm supposed to be writing 3 essays for the college application. I don't know how I forgot to have this done already. But that was yesterday!
Today is the day! I am sitting in front of Central Park watching people and eating. Some have just finished some running event. I'm waiting for my friend in Atlanta to finish feeding her baby so she can type up my essays I have to turn in with my application. For the life of me I couldn't get to a library nor would they open the computer room at the shelter. So as usual nicole is to my rescue and is going to type it and email it to me so I can print it at FedEx Kinkos. This is going to take the last of my money. I'm running out of time though I have to take a taxi. Now I am truly without money but it's worth it right?
How do that manage to do this to myself? I have missed the auditions! They started at 830 this morning. Where was I at 830? I was the shelter on the way to the subway. Some reason thought it was at 11:30. I was wrong. They were nice enough to tell me that I can reschedule for October 11th and that this type of thing happens all the time. They were very nice about it understanding. But in my mind I was distraught. But on the bright side it will give me time fix my essay and make it better because I know it can be. I'm so thankful to have good people in my corner. Last night Gerald send me I'm very last minute recommendation and I really appreciate him for that. It's time I take a rest apparently my mind is not working too well for me to have missed this audition so as soon as I get back to the room I am going to rest and start over
