As you may have guessed from the title, I am no longer in Florida. In all actuality I've been back in Louisiana since October because I was basically forced to self-terminate my College Program experience. No, I wasn't forced by my managers or by anyone within the company. What it came down to in the end was money, or the lack of it. In the end I wasn't able to work enough hours each week to pay my bills and keep my head above water. It was a fun time and I had so many experiences and met some really wonderful people, both of which I will never forget, but I guess nothing can last forever. I did, however, leave on very good terms with all of my managers, every one of whom assured me that they would be more than willing to help me out should I decide to go back as a regular cast member. Will that happen? I don't honestly know at this point. What I do know is that I'm back home, settled into a new apartment and job, and I'm back in school pursuing my master's degree in teaching. Everything is moving along well, no more sweating every single penny that I spend, and my bills are finally being paid on time again. We'll see where this path leads...who knows, at some point it may lead back to Florida, but that's in a future that is still unwritten.
