Ran Short Distance
It was a nice sunny day when I went out for a run this morning. Since this would be such a short distance I decided to go as fast as I could. It was a pleasant run. The only people I passed along the way were dogs with their walkers and Moms with kids in strollers.
I met up with the buyer from my Craigslist ad. I was relieved that she showed up and had the money for the tickets. She was a very nice and normal person. That has not always been the case with my Craigslist experience.
I’m so glad that I was able to sell this second set of concert tickets. This has been a nice bonus for me. I’m glad that my contest wins have helped lessen my financial stress.
Visit with Friends
I met up with my friends this morning. I hadn’t seen them in a few months. One of them is with the same agency as me. I asked him if he’s been busy and he said that he was able to take the occasional gig. He’s been able to work full-time and has an understanding boss who allows him to keep up his acting career.
His wife has been busy with her part-time teaching gig and doing some real estate on the side. She’s been busy with their two boys as well. So they are doing well, not thriving in Vancouver but at least surviving and able to keep living here despite the high rents.
Ran to Doctor’s Appointment
I had an appointment to go see a specialist this afternoon. I was lucky that it only took me three months to get it. Usually, it can take many months to get one. I had an interview and examination from a resident first and then the other doctor came in to talk with me.
In the end, we decided to go ahead and do a colonoscopy. The guidelines suggest one at fifty years old anyway, so I decided to have it done. They said that they could have it scheduled in two months, or I could wait until after the holidays. I decided to go ahead and book it for after my Dad and brother arrive so that they could pick me up. The hospital requires that I have somebody pick me up after the procedure. If I had done it earlier, I’d have to ask a friend to take off work to pick me up which I don’t want to do.
My friend gave me a buy one get one free movie voucher. It expires at the end of the month, so I need to use it up. My friend and I haven’t seen each other for a while, so it was nice to see Gone Girl. It was even cheaper because it was Cheap Tuesday.
I’ve been going to so many movies lately, but mostly free movie previews. I really wanted to see this movie, Gone Girl, because I had really liked the book. I think I would have enjoyed the movie had I not read the book ahead of time. But it was still good.
My extras agent had called me a few times today. He told me that he had a gig for tomorrow night. He told me that it was an exterior night shoot. Because of the way the weather has been lately, rainy, cold and windy, I don’t look forward to working outside.
But I can’t afford to say no to any work. As much as I don’t look forward to standing outside in the rain, I think I can handle it if I’m dressed warmly enough. It will be a night shoot. I don’t usually like night shoots, but as I said, I can’t be too choosy.
