I've had a busy week in Portland, seeing friends, running errands, not getting homework done. I love Portland, despite it's inclination toward "smarmy utopianism," as a friend labelled the subject of my rant, a couple of days ago. I keep telling people I won't be able to move back here, though, because there's no way to make a theater career, here (I have no desire to pursue theater as a hobby.) But, really, if I work in regional theater, there may be no reason other than an extra hour on airplane trips not to live here. Live here, work in film here, do what theater I can here, but travel for the bulk of my career. Sounds good, but iffy. I don't want to live in Chicago or Atlanta if I can help it, though, and I can't afford New York City or San Francisco. We'll see.
I gotta do my Big Ten or I'm gonna end up in a Big Pit.
