Let's start with good/funny news.. So for the first time in my life they finally spelled my entire name correct in the film credits.. but this time, it wasn't supposed to be me who got the credit..

Now for the bad news.. I'm about as broke as one can be and cannot for the life of me find work, any idea why? Writer's strike, and they didn't even go on strike! The studio's shit their diapers so bad I can't find a damn thing! And then now we're all holding the edge of our seat for this looming SAG strike that the actor's are all buzzin' about.. TV f**king sucks, I wish I just woulda picked a real job

Pro-tip, DO NOT get into Hollywood, it's cut throat and annoying down to the lowest credit, pay is stupid good, but that's the only perk -_- I worked on a Sandler film recently and 'company' d**ked me around on 18hr days and I had to listen to the art director's spastic BS all day moving his half ass set around..

I remember one of the first show's I ever worked on, we had 3 day shooting on location and they had me on as a production assistant then.. I worked a 23hr, got sent home for 4, and they had me back for another 16hrs.. all the while doing my PA thing and doubling as a stand-in for our talent and doing the gaffer's job, is nightmarish! I thought moving to big time union production would left that kinda shit behind, but noooooo..

We have a thing said in the studio's, "hurry up and wait" but I swear it don't feel like that's the case with show's I work on

Where are you working?

First things first I've got to take my mod one bike test. I actually have already passed this but because they put me on the wrong bike I have to do it all again, that's Wednesday.

Thursday will be helping my mum get ready for duncombe park horse show and getting the house ready for my girlfriend arriving Friday night. Then job hunting when she goes home Sunday not trying out my new desktop that's arriving today ;) crap I don't have a HDMI capable monitor!

Well, damn. I was hoping to get into a local laboratory technician job available locally. They test lake water from around the area for various contaminants (a big thing here in Minnesota). It wouldn't be my first choice in chemistry (I'm not so much into analytical chemistry), but it would be good experience for the summer. Now I've got to settle for a summer job outside of my area of expertise.

Oh well, at least I've got a teaching assistantship and tuition waiver for my grad school.

How can something be annoying and amusing at the same time ?
