Here’s an update for the 1 reader of this blog; I’m no longer heartbroken! The love of my life and I made up and talked things through. We hit a bump in the road but were honest enough with each other to sort through it and address some issues that needed attention. I won’t drag out what was said, but just know that we are stronger for it and on our way to a continuously growing relationship.
On a professional note, I’ve left the cruise ship comedy work. I have too many things going on at home and need to be on land when the people in my life need me. It was a great experience, but I had to hang up my sea legs.
I’ve started substitute teaching to supplement my comedy income. I don’t have very many comedy days scheduled to close out the year, so I have to make do and go to work. It’s been a struggle to get a marketing job, for which I hold a Masters degree in, so I’m going to take it as a sign to continue pursuing booking gigs and working when I’m not on the road.
I’ve been a prison guard before, but that doesn’t compare to what I had to experience as a substitute teacher for a 1st grade class. Don’t get me wrong, both experiences were terrible. One guy threatening another for being a snitch, another stabs someone with a shank made out of a pencil, people stealing food, gambling at every table, someone is tattooing people in a corner, shouting obscenities at me… oh, the inmates at the penitentiary were just as bad.
I love you, Alicia!
