But something good did come out of it. I actually met someone there who eventually got me a new job, which I will be starting next week.
the new job is an Assistant Producer position on a show called The Wellness Hour, shot locally here in North County San Diego - Carlsbad, to be specific; I'm only a block away from one of the most amazing beaches in the county. I don't want to say too much about the business of the show, but you can see what it is on San Diego Cox Cable Channel 31 (I think) or check out the website - www.thewellnesshour.com
Anyway, this is a nice little step in the right direction. Just thought I'd fill you all in.
