So...if there was ever a time to update it is now...
I just got a job with the Orlando Shakespeare Festival
It's all so strange. I've been waiting so long and there were so many closed doors between here and there...I haven't quite gotten my head around it yet.
Here are the basic facts:
Start date: Aug. 15. Will be moving in the 14th
Housing: Provided...other than that no details, I know they rent 2 bedroom apartments for the interns but just how many interns they squish into said apartment is unclear at this time.
Job title: Props and Scenic Artistry Assistant
Job duties: no details...I'm the only intern in this department, but what that means exactly I'm not so sure. I'll be working on a run of eight shows, six will be equity and two will be non. Hours are Monday to Friday eight am to six pm. Or so the story goes...
Other assorted facts: I know several people in FL but no one in Orlando. They have two inside theaters and one amazing outdoor space. There is a play festival in the spring that is world famous (well, maybe not world...but it's pretty well known). I'm terrified. I'm so excited I don't know what to do with myself.
The interview itself was odd, it happened on my lunch break today and within three minutes (literally) he had offered me the job. I'm sure I sounded really unprofessional because when he asked if I had any questions I just laughed and told him I wasn't sure because I hadn't been expecting him to offer me the job so fast.
So...here we are. I haven't caught up with myself yet. I'm still waiting for the reality of the situation to set in...
