All i can do lately is dream of spring and summer! Camping, hiking, gardening but most of all much less working.
I work backstage in the theatre as a costumer, during the theatre season (September to May) I work long and wonky hours as well as 6 days a week.
I find it hard to balance out life at all while I am working. The last 2 weeks have got me reeling at 55 hours and 72 hours. Sigh.
This is the life of the entertainment biz.
Feast and Famine.
Long days or nothing at all.
My job is also mentally tiring as working backstage with actors I have to give a lot of my energy to them. I must be calm and collected and at worst neutral emotionally as to not distract from their performances.
All this combined with cold weather and snow, well sort of.
Calgary is weird as we get cold snaps, sometimes lots of snow and then it gets warmer and melts everything so we are left with piles of dirty ice and mud.
Not just to complain, this post is just saying we all get a little down in the winter.
So if you a there, the sun is coming.
there are facts and then there are emotions. This is as honest as I can be about my struggles and triumphs.
