My company holiday party is tonight. I’m excited to kick back, have a couple of drinks, and eat some delicious food with my colleagues. I know I’ve said it a million times, but here I go again: Even though my job isn’t my dream job, I am SO LUCKY to work for the company I do. My coworkers are all excellent people, and the company does a great job of treating us like real people.
My 9 to 5 audition went well. I had a callback for not one, but TWO of the lead roles, on Wednesday night, which was incredibly exciting and nerve-wracking. I feel good. I didn’t hold back at all, so now it’s out of my hands. I feel pretty optimistic about my chances, but casting a show is like putting together a puzzle; it’s not just about how I did, but who else is cast and in what roles. We all have to look and sound right together, not just independently. They will be making casting calls tomorrow morning, so I’m planning to maybe have an extra drink or two tonight when I get home from the holiday party to hopefully help me sleep soundly and not stay up all night freaking out.
I’m still not really running. I haven’t run since… *goes to look it up in Strava*… November 15. I’m still pretty ok with this. Since my in-laws got their recumbent bike last month, I’ve been using it 3-4 times a week, so it’s not like I’m living the lazy life. I’m just not interested in running right now. Part of it is my ongoing shoe issues, part of it is the fact that it’s cold out, and part of it is the lingering sense of burnout post marathon training. I don’t think I’m done with running forever, but we seem to be on an extended break.
Does your company throw a holiday party? Is it any fun?
