Through a very circuitous route, I was selected to be the spokesmodel for a training video at work. This means I get to walk people through the ins and outs of how to conduct ethical research with minority populations. I've already done the voice-over recordings and tomorrow we will do the live shots. Or, as the "treatment" thing says, the "talent standup." I am very pleased with this. I am considering leaving my job and just doing technical videos for the rest of my life. Does that sound awesome? Pretty soon you'll see me the next time you get a new job and have to watch that unbearable video about harassment. Or when you take an online class on waste management and they have you do a segment learning about recycling? that's me: the pleasant-voiced, friendly-faced, racially ambiguous actress talking you through the step-by-step process of breaking down a cardboard box.
I can't wait. This bus is going places.
