I'm back in California after my second stint has ended. This one was short. It was so short that it felt like it went by in a flash. Then again, this last month felt like it went by in a flash. So, now the question is posed: What next? My answer is I have no idea.
The plan and thought was to be back in Mississippi at the end of the month through Labor Day, but that is still up in the air. I really want to go back to make more money, but I will understand if it's a no go. I do hope at least to know by the middle of the month, so I can figure out my plans. Those plans being a trip back to Massachusetts (Peabody to be more specific).
I'm too tired to write it now, but I will probably post in the next day or two some random favorite moments in Mississippi that I failed to write about during the last month. I have a small list of a couple things that I know I never wrote about for some reason.
I will say that yesterday was bitter sweet. I know I've said some bad stuff about Mississippi in the past month, but it's been fun. I did meet some great people down there and have some great memories. I really don't regret taking this job. I actually would have been an idiot to reject it considering the amount of work and money. Last night we had a "wrap party" at the Italian restaurant at the casino and drank a good amount of red wine. At the end of the night, Andy said something like we'll be seeing each other again. I nodded by (buzzed) head, but literally have no idea. There's a good chance I won't be back. I can't wait for this job to keep coming. Plus, I'm not in the freelance business. If late August is canceled, then I'm going to move on to (finally) pursue an assistant job in Los Angeles.
We did take a crew picture yesterday and it will surely be added to my wall of fame in my room. It's a good insurance policy in case some of us don't come back. At least, I will have the opportunity to look back and remember my adventures in the great state of Mississippi.
