Starting Monday, I will no longer work in the Audience department at the show.
I will be a Production Assistant at the show.
This makes me very happy. I’m not sure whether to classify it as a promotion, because it’s something of a lateral move, but it’s back under the production’s banner rather than the independent contractor I’ve technically been working for.
So it’s at least a huge step in the right direction, if not technically a promotion.
And I will actually have health insurance! Real, honest-to-goodness health insurance! There’s also a little more variety as a PA than as an audience coordinator, which will be nice.
My mom was really happy when I told her. I tried calling my dad, but since he’s in New Zealand right now, his tour group was just sitting down to tomorrow night’s dinner when I called, so I left a message for him.
I had to ask the desk clerk at his hotel to preface it with “This is good news,” since I told him I’d only call in case of emergency, and he’d probably have a heart attack if he heard from me without that preface.
Anyway, I’m really happy, and I think I need a celebratory beer, having already eaten some celebratory pancakes at IHOP. But I thought y’all would like to know.
That, plus I wanted to brag.
