Upside down

Last Thursday my work life has been turned upside down. I was told that my current job would no longer go on the way it has been for the first three months since I’ve been here. It was presented as a way to use my expertise and in a better way with more responsibilities, and growing possibilities within the company. This is not really the case, and I was presented with two choices picked for me to decide from over the weekend.
It’s strange that the job I was hired for is going to be taken away from me after just 3 months. It was a newly created position, which I think I started up successfully. I passed my 90 days, but not even had my 90 day evaluation, and I’m already presented with a very difficult decision, which by the way, affects several people and different departments. My decision could even mean the termination of one employee.
Today I’ll have to present my decision, but not before I will present a slightly different position that in my opinion will serve the company better. If declined, I have decided which of the choices it will be, and will set the stage for the next couple of months for my job.
After about 3 weeks of debating whether or not pursuing my acting career the way I have been doing is something I wanted to continue, I have come to the conclusion that I’m not ready to give up on getting myself out there in the industry, actively throwing myself in that pit called the entertainment industry. At least until I’ll find out what other passion I can find deep in myself that I can go after and will make me happy.
But for now, I have faith in myself that I will be able to make a living by acting, because after all…I am an actor.
