...and 3 blogs!
Not that I have a whole lot to write about this week. Well, that's not true. There's always something to write about, I just don't feel like talking about some of it, and the rest I'm contractually obliged not to mention.
That's right, I started working again. Finished my first week back after fourteen months of not working and not getting paid. Haven't been paid yet, but it's going to be nice to see a bank account balance go up instead of down.
But it's funny, I took a year off, finished my career, wanted to move on to other things, and I find myself doing the same things on the same show, and nothing's really changed. Not even me, at least as far as the job is concerned. Fourteen months, and it's like we loaded out one city last week and loaded in to a new on this week. Sure, there's new faces, but there were always new faces last time around. The show is the same, the cues are the same, and the things that have a tendency to cause problems are still the same. Rectifier faults are awesome.
This time around, I still have a definite end date, but it's what comes after that is new. Sort of. I'll be finishing out another contract, but this time I don't have any structure. I don't have trainings to finish up, and a boat to race. This time, I have to motivate myself to do this whole writing thing. Chances are, I'm going to be doing that in Las Vegas, because it's the easiest place to go back to and have the sort of lifestyle that will encourage it. And in the meantime, I get to go to a couple more places I've never been. Currently in Nottingham, we head to London, Paris, Oslo, Malmo, Stockholm, Hamburg, Rotterdam, Barcelona, Zagreb, Milan, Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Sheffield, and Manchester. And funnily enough, while I've been to Zagreb, Milan, and Barcelona, I've never been to Nottingham, Sheffield, or Manchester. It's similar to the yer I spent living in Salzburg, where I had to leave the area (Europe then, the UK this time) in order to travel around it.
And next week, I promise I'm going to start writing writing, and my blog will be all about those trials and tribulations. Probably.
