I realize that I've been terribly inactive, but it really can't be helped!
For the last two weeks of December, Christmas Town was open every single day! We got a one day break for Christmas, but that's it. We had 5 (25 minute) shows a day, which is very strenuous on the body when you're a muppet!
Also, on December 21 (I think), my dad was taken to the hospital. Nowadays it feels relatively normal considering his age. What became worrisome is that he was rushed to ICU on Christmas night after going into cardiac arrest. He is still in ICU and slowly getting better. I have to admit, since he has so many medical issues, I find it hard to say how he is really doing. I didn't go to work from the 26-28 in order to stay at the hospital. Let me tell you, sleeping in a hospital waiting room for 2-3 nights is not the most comfortable. The other families in ICU are amazing though. There is so much support in that waiting room, it's incredible. I returned to work for the last three days of Christmas Town with much love from my Sesame family.
Now Christmas Town is over and Busch is out of season, meaning I have no job! I may need to get something temporary, considering I have to pay 100$ worth of student loans every month, along with car insurance and my phone... I really do hate money.
I am so impatient and scared for the casting call from Busch for next year. My body simply cannot take another season of Sesame. I want to continue performing and being a muppet is not going to keep my body in the best condition for that. If they offer me Sesame, I'll regrettably have to turn it down.. All I can do is hope they liked my audition enough to get hired as a full performer there.
In other news, I WILL be attending Katsucon. I have wonderful friends helping me out financially so I can attend. I don't know what I will be wearing, but I will be there.
I'm hoping 2013 will be good to me, as 2012 was a rough year.
I suppose I'm doing alright, money is going to be very stressing while I don't have a job. I hate having these student loans while trying to save for a car... I'll pull through somehow.
