Last week I had surgery... on my face. Basically my upper jaw was too little and too far back for my teeth to fit together right, so they made it bigger and pulled it forward. It was quite invasive and I looked really silly for the entirety of last week. It was just funny though. I looked like a character from Wallace and Grommit which my family and myself found quite hilarious.
I went back to teaching today though, and I'm still a little bit swollen - the following were my favorite comments for the day
Teaching was awesome though, I had forgotten how much I love those girls.
When I got home I responded to an email asking for 8 attractive girls to submit headshot and res, to get paid to basically stand around at a convention. A friend of mine is doing some choreo for the same convention so after submitting I shot her a text to see if it was her thing and that if so I was available. And in the next 30 minutes I had gotten the job. Turns out it wasn't her exact thing but she was with the casting director when I texted and she told him he should call me (thanks Bon!). So boom. Stand around for 6 hours - $450. AND I rescheduled all my students so I don't lose anything from it either.
Then I went to the rehearsal for that, and then I went shopping for costume accessories, and now I'm home getting ready to go to sleep. Today rocked. And I have to say that this morning, I was really havin' a rough time, and I prayed that Heavenly Father would help me to feel better and get past it. And I know I shouldn't base my happiness on career success, and I don't. But a little providence like that gig today, in any area of your life, is pretty awesome and I want to give Him credit for it. So Thanks God, you're seriously the best.
Also... my face is less and less swollen everyday and I'm excited to not look like Chicken Run anymore.
