Graduating!
« on: Apr 30, 2012, 01:27 am »
Hi, everyone!

So, on May 12, I will be walking across the stage of the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ! Very excited to receive of my MFA in stage management.

Any fun, helpful life lessons and advice as I embark on my new, post grad adventures? I am not looking for stage management advice (this site is chalk full of great advice), but everything else - I take free advice of all kinds! :-)

Congrats!

The best advice I got about moving to a new city was this- You need three things before you move to a new city: A Job, a place to sleep and a friend. If you have all 3, do it! If you have 2, you can still do it but you'll probably need more money than you think. If you only have one...hold off for a little bit longer.

Then the only real good advice I can give: Don't listen to advice. Things that worked for me won't necessarily work for you. ;)

Good luck!
