"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
I can't believe it's Thursday already. Seriously, I need time to slow down just a little bit and take us back to Tuesday so that I can get more done this week. Not that I've been unproductive, I've just been swamped! I just got rehired at the production company working nights. Financially this is definitely a blessing and so right on time. Remember how I said I needed to find a way to continue shooting DWP and get back in acting class? Well this will help. I don't know how long they're going to keep me on this time since it's on a temporary basis but I'm grateful for each day that I'm there. The only downside to this is that I'm not home when Jayden comes home from school so I haven't been able to help him get back into the swing of things in regards to doing homework. After having a homework-free summer he needs help with this each day and Stephen's had to take over that role since I'm not there. I feel kinda bad about it but what can you do?

Speaking of school, Inglewood Unified School District is really pissing me off right now. They don't offer the Spanish Immersion Program that Jayden was in when we lived in Long Beach so I'm trying to have him transferred into another district that does. It took forever for him to even get accepted into this other district and now that he has, Inglewood doesn't want to release him. Why? Because they lose money when they lose students. But guess what? As a parent, that's not my concern. My priority is to make sure my child takes advantage of the best education that public school can offer. If they want Jayden to stay in their district they need to expand their programs. And if they're not in a financial position to be able to do so then they need to release him! So I've had to appeal their decision twice now and it's currently being reviewed by the superintendent. I really hope they don't make me have to go there with them but you don't mess with a mom on a mission!

More updates later.

  1. A child's education should never come down to an issue of money. Unfortunately, school boards and school districts seem to not hold the same values regarding that...It's sad! I'm glad that his permit was approved.

    In reply to your comment - Thank you so much! I heard great things about "An Agent Tells" all! Now I just have to find it in a library somewhere...I'll probably end up having to order it though. I also actually spent a good part of the day making my reading list and I already took the liberty of stalking out your Recommended Reading section, hehe. :) It's very helpful. In fact, your entire blog is quite helpful. I read you on Backstage Unscripted for a while now and loved your insight into the industry and witty writing (I hope that doesn't sound creepy).

  2. Language education is a great thing at any age, and absolutely incredible when you're young. Best of luck Brandi!!
