It’s been a while since I’ve written on here. I’ve been very busy. I finished school at CalArts, did all those readings, finished up my thesis and moved to LA from Valencia. Now I’m finally working and being productive. I have a day job gig at Creative Space Summer Camp as the Acting Specialist–so I get to use my long-since-retired theatre knowledge and my writing skills to help the kids create little skits for the end of camp. The kids are ages 5-12 so they’re pretty cute and have funny ideas. I’m also about to finally have my first official client as a postpartum doula. She’s due in about a week and a half! I can’t wait. I’ve also been really lucky to find a birth company to be a part of. I now am a postpartum doula (though I have to wait to get a Birthwell client til camp ends because I won’t have time–sadly) and blogger/office intern for Birthwell Los Angeles. It’s an awesome organization run by a midwife. So far working with them has been awesome. I love hanging out up in Topanga, CA, where she lives/works. So beautiful. It’s also great because I get to use my writing skills. I finally feel like I’ve found the right profession for me. I’m also interviewing at a university to teach writing comp–which would be a great supplemental source of income between doula gigs.
It’s late, I should sleep.
