...has improved drastically recently. And as far as I can tell, it's directly linked to my parents laying off all their employees. Now they can work from wherever they want to, they don't have to deal with a lot of doofusey employees & they've hired me as a part-time editor! Their stress has gone down so much that my mom and I actually went a WHOLE DAY without fighting. And she laughs and gets all bantery all the way to rehearsal, which is a long walk through the city at 8 in the morning.
Oh, and that editorial job? I've made $32 off it in a month. That's 3 1/2 times as much as my monthly allowance. Plus I get to correct my parents' mistakes and they actually thank me. Pretty sweet, huh?
Tech week is coming up, so the tech team came and watched a runthrough of the show and our producer/playwrite actually cried afterward when he was talking to our director. Apparently it matched his vision so perfectly that it overwhelmed him. And the director, C, told me that I was "a wonderful actor...I'm so true to Ellen. I actually seemed 10 years older than Julie," who is a year older than me. (I'm playing her stepmom) I just need to get comfortable with touching N, the kid playing my husband, who is "quite a gentleman."
