I’m employed! Not gainfully, but at least employed! I got an internship at the Ellen DeGeneres show, and I start Monday.
This was the job I was starting to lose faith in a bit last night. The guy finally called me this morning as I was having a violent debate with my alarm clock about whether I was gonna get up.
The pay is…well, nonexistent, but this is the best opportunity I’ve had in a very, very long time, and I’m sure as hell not going to pass it up, even if it means mooching, probably ending up working 7 days a week so I don’t have to mooch quite as much, going on the all-ramen diet, and never going out.
The show is out in Burbank, which is kind of ironic, since part of the reason I ended up living in Venice and spurned the Valley was that I thought I was gonna be working in Santa Monica, and didn’t want to live on the 405 freeway. Now I’m going to anyway.
However, it’s a reverse commute and the northbound section of the freeway clears about two to three hours earlier than the southbound in the morning. And really, I’d much rather work in the Valley and live elsewhere than live in the Valley and work elsewhere. Like, totally.
But overall: YAAAAAAAAAAY!
