The UCB’s official class description, as it appeared on the theater’s web site in the late ’90s.
Submit a word or phrase, and I’ll post a two-page story based on the suggestion.
Alas, I did not get the job I interviewed for…I found out today. It sucks. Yep. I jumped through a bunch of hoops, went through three rounds of interviews, and that’s it. It feels like I need to have a grieving period or something…to get all thoughts of it out of my system. To kind of turn and focus forwards instead.
Yeah, so it’s tough. It makes my life more difficult, because I have to search for jobs that aren’t too plentiful. But hopefully I will find more opportunities, maybe something that fits me better. We’ll see.
I move back into New York tomorrow. I’ve got money saved up so I can pay my rent for a couple of months, and if I don’t find a permanent position, I’m hopeful that I can find something that pays, anything that allows me to stay in New York is fine with me.
The post grad world is definitely scary for me. It will be strange and difficult, I’m sure to be so unmoored and untethered from safety and surety. But I’ve also got a lot of great things going for me, I’ve got wonderful friends, an amazing community, and I’ll be living in NYC. These are good things. This is good. I expect it will be fun and exciting and scary and difficult all at once. I hope for more good times than bad.
More updates later. Thanks for all the good thoughts/wishes as I was applying/interviewing too, it really means a lot to me.
Guys!!! I’m in the next round of this interview process!!!! Yeah!!! I have my graduation ceremonies on Tuesday and Wednesday, but hopefully I’ll meet with them Thursday or Friday for a crazy interview with the whole editorial group of this imprint, it is definitely a bit intimidating, but I’m totally hopeful about this. I can do it. I’ll give more updates when they come.
