Next week I start production work on another award show, the NAACP Image Awards. I'm mentally preparing now. I've worked on this show every year since 2003, I get to work with several friends on this show and I don't have to work directly with talent (which can try my patience). I've been going to weekly lectures by Marianne Williamson, and really working hard to implement the things that I'm learning, namely, to rise about the fray and stay above it. I get sick and grumpy every time I do production work (some gigs much more than others), and I don't want to be so easily affected by temporary circumstances. I need to make some money right now so that I can knock out the few debts that I have, and get new headshots that feature my BIG HAIR, which I have finally decided is here to stay for awhile. I'm past the awkward stage and it's actually looking cute these days. PLUS I've finally found a wonderful product that makes my hair behave (well, sort of) and doesn't send my scalp psoriasis into angry eruptions. Color me happy. (Sometimes it's the little things.)
I've been more social than usual, and it has been good for me to get out of my apartment for non-work-related reasons and communicate with people face to face (rather than facebook to facebook or tweet to tweet). I'm working on ME, y'all. 2010 is going to be great.
P.S. - Here in L.A., TV shows put you "on hold" before booking you. Commercials put you "on avail." I believe different terminology is used on the east coast.
