Sorry I didn;t get back sooner. I had thought before about meeting people from from the net, but I just don't know if I'm ready yet. I mean, one of the reasons I participate in such personal discussions on messageboards is for the anonymity. I'm won't say no, just 'not yet' I hope you can understand, and wont be mad at me.
btw: today I sent my resume to a head hunter, & it was a real wake up call. The same head hunters, two years ago, were like, "yeah, we can find you something!" This time the guys said this was wrong with my resume, and that ... I feel very discouraged right now. I will have to put a lot of work into it over the weekend, and hope he likes it better on monday.
ps: Its really exciting that you are going to manhattan!
: I sure do! I have been so in over my head lately. So much going on, lots of big decisions. I am moving out east in one month, (I was going to wait one year, but I've decided I can't wait that long, I'm not getting any younger, I want to go now) and I'm going to check out it out. I am really excited about it, but *very* nervous and terrified about driving my car all the way over there (from the Midwest). I don't want it to break down, nor get in an accident once I'm there either. I paid a lot of money for it, and without knowing anyone, I won't have a way to get around without it, (unless I live close to public transportation, which I don't want to have to do all over again). I plan to work downtown Manhattan, and find a room to rent across from there in NJ (I'd rather be on the continent than island, plus closer to the outdoors and space, not stuck in the crowded city).
: Actually if you and I are anywhere close together geographically, maybe we could meet, and then talk some more, if you'd like. If so, how about exchange emails? Then again if you are busy, I don't want to intrude. Just a suggestion, but you do seem like a neat person, and it would be neat to meet someone on the enneaboard. How's your job search so far? What kind of work you looking for, or rather, what is it you would like to do? And, btw what type are you again? The same as me (4)? I'm sorry I forgot. What's your email?
: Take care,
: Margaret :)
: : I'm glad you remember me! How are you these days?
: : Rho
: : : That's not true. I remember you. You are a nice person. I ended up buying a cell phone just like you suggested. And I'm so glad I did that. Now I can take calls anytime, and not be afraid to miss something. I even think how amazing it was I lived that whole time without it! Thanks for the advice. It was great! I also understand what you mean by not liking to work at what does not interest you. However, the incredibly tense pressure society forces on you to work normal job with normal hours like everyone else is so incredibly powerful, it's too hard to go against, and definitely not worth it in the long run. And although unfortunately most work sucks, it helps if there's at least something you can find about it that you have to look forward to - it's better than nothing. Good luck!

: : : : Hey Sarah67! I think you are the only one who will remember me ... How have you been? I'm unemployed & making the best of it. I'm gonna have to get a job real soon now. My benefits wont last much longer. But I don't wanna work! I like doing the stuff I like to do!
: : : : : Hey girl!!!! long time no see. whats'a shakin?
: : : : :
: : : : : : : so i've been having the most stressful week ever. preparing/rehearsing for my finals which consists of 8 performances and 3 scored scripts, running around NYC like a chicken with it's head lopped off, freaking out over everything, too many cigarettes, not nearly enough food, too much coffee, and i've been having this dwindling long-distance relationship with sleep.
: : : : : : : So I fliped out and went to visit my father. when i got here, he had gone out and bought this HUGE tray thingy of all my favorite sushi: Philly roll, CA roll, spicy salmon, and UFO roll. way more than i could possibly handle. I ate as fast as i could so that way I could stuff down the very most possible before my brain could kick in and tell me that i was full.
: : : : : : : and he also got me my two favorite kinds of ice cream: chocolate peanut butter cup and mint chocolate chip. i can't ever remember the last time i got to eat someting besides 75cent beagle and a 25 cent bannana. so now i'm chowin on a bowl of ice cream the size of a grown man's head and it's all for lill'ole me.
: : : : : : : i'm a happy girl. ;-)
