As I wake up each day, I reach my arms high and stretch pondering where my life will lead me. I feel that I am in a state of lingering patience, a patience that is wearing me thin. Finishing University after years of toil and struggle, took it’s toll on me, but I was able to prevail.
Now that I have completed my degree’s and certifications, I feel grateful for the free time and opportunity in front of me. On a regular basis I am applying to districts and trying to get a personal touch on top of my resume’s so that I can be considered as a potential employee. I feel like this grind is becoming as stressful as the previous grind of University course work. I know, life is tough, but one can only take so much before an inevitable explosion.
On the bright side of things, my artwork and potential projects on the horizon, gleam with possibilities. I am filming a new 1.5 minute piece with a professional audio/video engineer name Omid Pakbin, a man of incredible talent and vision. This piece will showcase the best of what both of us have to offer, in hopes to clear a new path for collaborations with dance and visual story telling. On top of this I plan to submit a profile to some voice acting agencies, due to my inherent need to continuously make voices and mimic accents. I feel that this avenue to bring a lot of happiness into my life, as well as another pay cheque 🙂 .
Check out some of Omid’s work on his vimeo channel.
