Sophia (on what she does during periods of unemployment?): A lot of soul searching. It's really hard and that's the down side. It does happen to a lot--even the greats have a lot of time off work. It's very rare to job hop. I do think it's important to take time off between to recharge your batteries and to go back to the real world but there's nothing worse than being forced. The thing is, if you're a musician, at least you can pick up your violin for example and play music but with this craft you have to wait to be asked to act and that can be frustrating at times and also dealing with rejection. I didn't go to university but I do feel like I have an M.A. in coping with rejection, I really do. You get so strong about it.
