The month of April was so incredibly hectic with finals, my show, moving home, and graduation prep that I wasn't able to properly sit down and plan out what my summer and forward was going to look like. Now that I'm home again, I would like to think that this summer is just going to be a quick rest-stop, as it were.
The plan as I would have it drawn up:
- Make contact with editors throughout the Globe (and other publications?) and pitch stories for freelance opportunities. Also continue to write for Blast Magazine.
- Create a home-office sort of space that would give me the right settings to focus on writing and public relations/marketing work.
- Pick up as many hours at the Globe on the City Desk and Message Center as humanly possible.
- Finalize production team and resources for Summer Scene's production of Seussical Jr.
- Find local bartending job, get back into pouring drinks...and getting paid for it.
- Hang out with Greg and Natalie as frequently as possible, because both of them are taking off at the end of the month.
- Try to start working out regularly, now that I've got more time to do so.
- Begin to map out each scene and the set for Seussical Jr.; audition program participants and cast show.
- Ask around about potential apartment-mates for the fall.
- Continue to search for and apply for full-time jobs in the Boston area.
- Continue work at Globe, Blast, bar.
- Direct Seussical Jr., make the show kick ass.
- Settle on apartment-mates and find and secure apartment near T line that will let me have car. That last part is pretty key.
- Continue working at Globe, Blast, bar.
- Hopefully I'll have a job by now - once Seussical Jr. concludes, I'll be left with only my part-time jobs, so I'll need to have something lined up very soon to work toward the apartment money.
- Part-time work throughout.
So yeah, that's what I'm hoping happens. We'll just have to see how well I can put that into action.
