Have you ever been on a job interview and they tell you about the job and everything that you could be doing and you know it is exactly the job you want. I had one of those today. Now the only question is will I actually get the job. Sure I need the money and sure I need something else to do with my time but I think the best part of it is that it is the start of what I want to do.

I always knew that to get into the TV/Film industry I would need to start at the bottom and learn and move from there and this is the beginning of that, if I get the job. It is just a part time camera operators position at one of the local TV stations but it is a start at learning about how things work and operate on sets.
This job is not glamorous or even credited but I loved everything that this guy described. I knew when I stepped into the door of the control room that this is the place I want to be. Seeing the cameras and the sound equipment and everything made my hopes get higher and higher. Now all it comes down to is waiting until Friday to find out if I got it or not. Sure he said all he needed to do was check my references but I have been on several job interviews over the last 4 months of unemployment and I'm trying not to get my hopes up to high. In this economy there are so many people looking for jobs that it is hard to find an entry level position.
So I love my school but it is a lot of work. Not to mention it is bringing back all of this old math and science that I haven't thought about in years and am having a hard time remembering. Luckily I think it is slowly starting to sink in again and I'm grasping the material somewhat well. Good thing I love reading.
I have never felt more in control of my life than I do right now. It could all fall apart but for right now I feel like my life is following the path I have always wanted it to and I'm headed to where I want to go. How ever long it takes or the trials that may come along the way will be worth it because I can feel that this is what I was put on this earth to do. I just have to make the most of it and make it happen.
