    I've been absent here lately because I've finally done it, I went back to the dark side and took an agency -ish type job as a Sr. Producer. It's still a freelance collective so the vibe is different but still so busy. So many big contracts -- it's definately more than full time. I've been clocking 70-80 hour weeks which my bank about appreciates. That's a nice change from tour manager, struggling artist life. I guess that was a nice burnout vacation.

    But, I also have this scholorship (my 3rd in a row) to UCB (Upright Citizen's Brigade) and I can't imagine having the time to write at that level for my next class. I'm planning a week off for everyone between two huge contracts. So, maybe I'll take a week long improv intensive. I hate being on stage (I went to UCB to write sketch, not act) but I think it will help with my shyness in crowds when the focus is on me. It's a strange mix of excitement to do it and natrual fear. Now I just have to line up the time.

    Hi guise!! What have you been up to?
