It will forever be another turning point year for me, another year of challenges, another year of tests.
What started off as a great year has turned into a professional mess. Another job loss from corporate America. Another summer of job-searching and living off the dole. Yes, America, even Harvard graduates are looking for jobs in this economy.
There are some bright spots: all this free time has allowed me to spend A LOT of time with my kids. That is priceless. I have also been able to launch Latino Rebels quicker than I had planned, and of course, I keep adding pages to Franky Benítez. The blogging keeps me busy, and it does appear that I will officially join the Mundo Hispano TV team!
But nothing is official yet, and the work to keep the family fed and bills paid is 24/7. That is why I need a break.
So this Friday night, August 12, at 10 pm, I will be on stage, performing at ImprovBoston. This troupe, which has been part of my life since 1994, is family to me, and I am so excited to play with my fellow improvisors.
If you happen to be in Cambridge’s Central Square, this Friday night, swing by to the IB and say hi! Yes, post-show beer will be involved.
