Production entrance

I am in my second week of this movie. It will be over before I know it. Not sure how I feel about that. I don't like contract work at all but those are typically the best paying jobs. IF I do work another movie I am hoping to work with an actual production crew team. In this industry education and experience don't seem to matter. "It's all about who you know, not what you know."
I'll be moving in the next couple of weeks. I have until the end of April to move out of my little midtown manor. I'll be moving into a 1 bedroom apartment on the other side of town. Away from downtown, within walking distance of the studio and in a safer part of town. I am most excited about space and upgrades. My house is do little and has nothing in the way of storage, especially in the kitchen. Speaking of kitchens, I will never take dishwashers or double sinks for granted again. This whole single sink and no countertop business killed my "don't go to bed with the kitchen dirty" habit. Ha. On a bright note, I got off work an hour early yesterday and when I got to my house to get ready for date night Tuesday Justin was sitting on my couch, my kitchen was completely cleaned and Nemo's litter box cleaned. I SO appreciate the little things. :-) It was such a relief and breathe of fresh air.

Time flies

It's March already? Excuse me, but where in the world did the time go? It was just Christmas! :-)
Obviously making a big blogging comeback was not part of my new years' resolutions. I still read and comment when I can. I've been computer-less for 2 months now. I miss my laptop terribly! I mean, imagine how much more time I could waste in pinterest, blogger and social media. Haha! I do miss coupon inch though. *sigh* It just takes way to much time to do the matchups on my own.
What has happened in the past two months? Good question. I was so good at taking a picture a day for the first couple of weeks of 2012, a feeble attempt at documenting my life in some form. In the mundane day-to-day I just don't think to take pictures.
I was able to go home a lot in January and February, so I have some pictures from that. Unfortunately they're on my camera and I can only blog from my phone right now. Rather than try and even post document my life, I'll document the here and now. I am no longer the manager at work. I resigned and now bake. The hours are not full-time but the schedule is super flexible which is exactly what I will be needing in a couple of weeks. Remember on my crazy, ridiculous workaholic summer last year when I was working a day or so a week for a movie company here in town? No? Didn't think so. Haha. Well they gave offered me a full-time contract position. The start filming their next movie in a couple of weeks and will film for 8-10 weeks. I will work for them Monday though Friday. I will also continue to work at the bakery for atleast a few weeks on weekends. My biggest goal is to put the extra income from the movie into savings and my entire bakery paycheck towards debt. I paid off my first credit card on Friday and it was so nice. I finally felt like I was accomplishing something! I also plan on going back to school, either in the summer or fall. I WILL get my bachelors degree. I'm putting my stubbornness to good use!
