As I watched the panel discussion about August Wilson I realize that I am not that complex a playwright. Learning more about August Wilson I’m realizing that it is just the nature of the Beast. It is our vision that is directing us. I don’t even think we are in control. I guess I can stop being so hard on myself.
Today was no typical day, it was pick on Andrea day.
I think today was one of those days that people stood on a line and took turns at me. Why are so many people lacking in Customer Service? They make you feel like you are imposing on their time. What is the world coming to when you do not have a nice customer service representative to ask questions?
Has anyone out there in I’m Just Sayin’ land experienced such a thing? When did the rules change? Was it when they began to Outsource a lot of the customer service jobs to different countries? Where are the customer service training workshops? Maybe they don’t care anymore. Whatever the case is something needs to be done about it. How can the company or Corporation expect to make money if they are not providing a comfortable environment and service? If people do not get the help that they need they will walk out of the establishment & go to a more user-friendly and customer service oriented company.
What say you?

So, I’m sitting here wondering just how real this image could possibly be. A kid learns his father is someone from the neighborhood. He goes out to the area where men often gathers and says, “Who da Pappy?” holding up a picture of he and a man. All the men take off running, don’t want to assume responsibility.
Is it just me or does this NOT seem too far fetched? I’m just sayin’.
Well, it’s that time again. A time when we must reassess our lives for betterment.
I am in the process of preparing for the Fall season. How about you? Life seems so redundant, dont you think? Well, with that being said, I am looking over my plans and endeavors to make sure that I still feel about them today, how I felt about them yesterday, in 2015 when I made the plans.
I am a playwright-screenplay writer-journalist-research writer struggling with Lupus. One who loves to help people, whether personally or through my nonprofit organization, People Helping People, Inc.. When things seem to be standing still or moving in circles, and even when they seem to be going very well, I have to redefine or make an assessment of my plan, as we know, although we plan, there is one who plans much better than us, he being the all-knowing.
This is where I am now. And I have found that when I assess several times throughout the year, be it a random assessment or a quarterly assessment, sort of like a tune-up or fine-tuning of my plans, goals or endeavors, things turns out much better and I find myself that much further ahead.
Today though, I must do more than see if I’m on track to move ahead. Inching along will never do. Although I have been blessed with some great opportunities I need to seize the day. I need to be able to write in all the genres I love, direct plays & film from time to time, sell my film scripts and in between all of this, help people along the way. Is that too much to ask for?Well, it’s me. It’s my goal, it’s my life, it’s Andrea.
When I submitted in the past to Lupus and any other health issue, life as we know it, people or anything holding me back, I fell into depression and became sicker to the point I thought I was on my death bed. When a publicist told me that if I don’t pull out of it I will die and have none of my books published, none of my plays or films scene and none of my work enjoyed by the masses, I snapped out of it and I began my journey and although it is hard sometimes trying to be recognized among many, with lupus and sometimes seizures pulling at me, I still keep trying to push forward, marching ahead, knowing that through the other great talents and…I will have my day. I will achieve. I will progress much further than the road I see ahead. I will be the writer of sorts who also endulges in other areas of entertainment; who helps people; who lives, not survives, but lives through life and all of its woe.
What about you? Do you self-assess? Where does it take you?
