A Wicked Lady Tells All

I may not be the biggest BAMF in the room at any given time, but I certainly try to be in the top three.

I've been in the theatre for over twenty years as a little bit of everything. Yes, I have welded upside down from a second story set in nothing but gauzy underwear half hour before a show opened. I prefer to keep my hair purple. And I run very quickly in four inch heels.

Hey dudes! Inspired by [personal profile] lunamystic, here is me breaking down all my regular make up and face product usage and some other random special effects stuff that I use!

In this post, I talk about skin care, body care & lotion, primers, foundation, and powder. This thing got so big and so full of product, I decided to chop it up into 2 posts. Next post will be about eyeshadow, eye liner, lip color and liner, brushes & sponges, and some specialty products like false eyelashes and other things!

I have been back and forth on a masters for a while. I also just flat out need a career change.

I'm thinking outloud, internet. Tell me all your thoughts.

Pros and Cons #1 - Foreign Service Officer )

Choice #2 - Masters of Fine Arts - SMFA )

Can you see why I am sort of back and forth on this?

My biggest fear: I put myself in a lot of debt and then don't have a job again for two years. Or, I manage the FSO test and orals, get an offer, and I hate it. Like, I find out I hate it after I get there with no turning back. I fear getting trapped, because I am feel like I am trapped in my current job because I keep being the second choice for new jobs because there is just this thing about me (literally what my head hunter said to me).

I do not hate my job (just my supervisor). I am worth more money than I am paid, but I am very afraid I will never be able to earn my potential because of bad job markets, my lack up degree beyond a BS, and the blunt answer of "I'm a girl" in what is a mostly male industry, arts management (which is why I never accept jobs I am offered because they are below $30,000 year for really fucking demanding jobs; fucking artistic nonprofit salary ideas!!!)

I miss just being an artist. I have always been most happy then. I don't mind not having money, I just need to have enough money to take care of my bills. And maybe buy some shoes sometimes? And video games? Maybe? (This is also the "problem" with not being married: no one to lean on; it is just me, and that's okay damn it, why is it hard?)

WHAT DO YOU THINK, GUYS? Seriously, tell me.

I am going to try doing a public post about my word count as long as doing [community profile] getyourwordsout.

My word count for the month: 11,614

Got a little behind! I should be at 12,700 for my yearly goal, but honestly? I am so proud of me for writing that much! I am normally luck to make myself hit 2000 - 3000.

Wicked Truth

I'm a southern girl making my way through Yankeeland with a history degree and an artist's soul. I'm a geek and a dork, and I'm okay with that.

Sometimes, I even wear pants when blogging.
