What is a real job?

Is it a job you hate that you only keep for the big paychecks and the benefits?
Does it involve pushing paper? Sitting in a cubicle? Working 9-5 Monday to Friday?

Noone ever considers working in theatre a "real job". Is it because everyone in it wants to be there? Is it because we don't get paid much?

I define REAL by the things that make us who we are. Our personalities, our hopes, our dreams, our experiences, our realtionships... theatre is a way to explore those parts of us. I want to tell people's stories and I want to make people think about what is important to them. I want people to relate to the characters that I will portray. I want them to FEEL and what is more REAL than feelings?
