An Actor's Christmas List

As graduation approaches, I become more and more aware of what I'm missing or lacking. Most of the time this is because of looks, the way my voice sounds, my sad eyes, or how I perpetually look classy even if I'm wasted at the cocktail party. But the one asset that I DON'T have, but I DO have control over is my PERSONAL POSSESSIONS!

Still, "stuff" can get expensive. Hooray, holidays! Time to ask my parents. Here's my actor shopping list:

  1. Lexicon of Shakespeare's Word (Schmidt editions one and two)
  2. Business Cards
  3. Business Card Holder
  4. New dress pants!
  5. Brown boots, for the love of all that is holy
  6. A nice black jacket
  7. A nice camera, but that's not desperate
  8. A trip to the Library Book Sale :D
  9. A mini tri-pod

And there you have it! All things that I need as an actress (okay, and as a human being) to get my career off to a good start. Hard to believe this is all happening so fast!!

I've been working on my website recently. I'm still without my own domain name, but that will come! So far, I just wanted to create something that expressed who I am as an actress. Check it out!

The other best job ever

I have been incredibly lucky with my secondary job. I work as a Sales Specialist at REI, which is named one of the top 100 places to work in the country. It's a sincerely spectacular job with amazing benefits, flexibility, and community. REI is more than a secondary job for me; it represents my main source of joy beyond the theatre. I love to hike. Everyone I work with is passionate about the outdoors, and that keeps me active and enthused about my job, even when I haven't been able to get outside in a long time!

REI hires employees part time, and likes to keep a lot of people on staff. I will most likely transfer employment to REI in New York, LA, DC, or Cincinnati, but I could easily pick up another part time job.

Other jobs that I have considered include:

  • Dog Walker
  • Nanny
  • Bartender
  • Waitress
  • Substitute Teacher
  • Theatre/Movie Critic
  • Outreach Specialist
  • Zumba Instructor
