As many of you know I am now in my 5th year at the J. I started working a week after graduating from college. In college I knew I wanted to work in theater professionally. But I assumed I would end up doing something else and just doing theater in my free time. But I did it I guess, I became a theater professional and who knows if I could do anything else.
Five years is a long time and I feel like now’s the time when I have to start thinking about next steps. I don’t want to leave the J, the mission work and people all suit me very well. Working in the Jewish community is also a blessing. It’s great to know I don’t have to explain why I have to take two days off for Rosh Hashanna. But even so, 5 years is a long time. I’m not leaving but it is time to start building a plan for the next 5 years.
And speaking of a life in theater, did anyone read this series about actors lives. I must say I have such appreciation for people who work in this career. We are, each and everyone of us, insane. But what else is there to do.
