UPDATE!! Update!!

Long needed update!! Sorry that I haven't been able to post recently-a lot has been happening lately and I've  been a bit overwhelmed. From May-November 1st Mike and I lived in the LA/OC area. And it was AWESOME!! Not only did we get to meet fantastic new friends, we had so many opportunities granted to us. I did a lot of audience work on tv shows (Rickie Lake, Jeff Probst,  Let's Make A Deal, and a few more) as well as two short films plus I got to be a background actor in 'Lovesick' with Matt LeBlanc and Ali Larter). Plus Mike got to be in the season finale of 'Weeds' and in two different webseries.

In October I got to be in the Queen Mary's 'Dark Harbor.' Not only was this a badass event, I looked like varying degrees of scariness of this:
 The people were fantastic, but our housing plans fell through and we had to move back up north to Redding.  Where we've been living at my parents' house.
 Now, I am a registered voter in Humboldt County so Mike and I decided to road trip over there so I could vote. Unfortunately our car threw an axle into its engine and it was totaled and we were stranded in Humboldt at my cousin's house. That was pretty cool because I've never been super close with Zev so it was nice to get to know him better.
 So now there are two cars for my entire family: Mom, Dad, Me, Mike, Griffin (still home from college until late January) and Gideon. I worked my butt off and got a job at Cinemark Movies 14 (whoop-de-doo right?) and during the holiday season I was getting 6 days a week and loving it! Unfortunately early January came around and I was moved down to 2 days a week. Thankfully Round Table Pizza gave me an interview and then hired me by mid-January. Plus I need 1 class before I graduate from Humboldt with a Theater degree so I decided this spring is the time!
 So I was working 2 jobs and had class 3 times a week and was still trying to find Mike a job. Then my Dad's car died on the freeway. So now we're at the point where there are 5 of us in this house trying to get everywhere we need to go. We have had to call in a lot of favors (Thank you Ashley, Kassy, Saralysette, and Grandma Tripp for helping us out!!) to get everywhere, but we're really hoping a really good job comes along for one of us. It's a pretty terrible feeling, being a 23 year old bottom of the rung worker at a movie theater in my hometown. Not only do a lot of people recognize me, but I feel so unfulfilled and bored by the work I have to do over and over.
 My Round Table job did not last long. Although I loved making pizzas, didn't have a huge issue cleaning up after guests and fellow workers, but I was only getting 2 hours a day, which didn't even cover the gas to get dropped off at work, have my driver go do whatever they needed to do, and then come back and pick me up. Plus I was the only female there that didn't have a kid so I guess I didn't need any money to eat.... 8 hours a week, broken into two hour shifts is BS. I might write more about that situation later. I decided to quit this past Saturday.
Now onto some voice-over work I've been doing!! I'm currently on the site I will be updating this list from time to time with links and reviews and such :)
