  1. Default 1st Year Blues

    My first year as a professional haunter is officially over and all that remains is days of clean up and packaging. We had a good attendance, front page articles in both local papers, nothing but awesome reviews, and a staff that was almost crying to see their first year as haunters end. As I begin walking the trail and packing things up I feel really really depressed. Sad that it's over. Sad that we didn't break even. Sad that almost all my purchased prop masks were stolen in the last hour of operation. Sad that I have to spend the next two weeks cleaning up by myself. Sad that I will have to go get a temp contract job in corporate America just to get our finances back to what they were before the event. Sad that so many of the props were broken during the event by wildly enthusiastic actors.

    Is this haunt postpartum depression normal? Is it a sign that this haunt thing isn't for me?
