I’ve been sick for the past couple of days. It’s a pretty bad cold with the sniffling and the coughing and the ewww. I haven’t been sick in over two years. The last time? I was leaving my job at the Magnetic North Theatre Festival to work at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Now? I’m leaving my admin work at the theatre to be an artist full-time. Throw in three different scripts I have to learn for the end of the month, a major project due for my college course, at least 3 more shows I need to see this week, a part-time job, writing a play, stage managing a cabaret, taking an acting course, at least one audition, and getting my place into some sort of order… well, I’m not surprised this is hitting me now.
I need to learn to say No sometimes.
