Going for the Gold

Hi all,

I’m sorry for not posting for a while.  I’ve been putting together my plans for moving to LA.  The official moving date is March 22.  I will be driving down with my mom and we’re going to see Pride and Prejudice at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.  I’ve been going to the festival since I was 10 and I’ve always wanted to be in the festival.  Maybe one day I’ll get my chance.  They audition in New York and LA and for Southern Oregon locals.  I absolutely love the costumes, the sets, and the actors are the best.

I’m worried about getting a jobby job.  I will sign up with the offices affiliated with my temp agency in Oregon and another temp agency I heard about.  And I’ll be asking all the people I know in LA for advice.  I’ll be joining the Actors’ Network, which gives guidance, resources, and workshops to actors in the LA area.  Membership costs $200 per four months which considering the total cost of trade publication expenses, classes and workshops in LA is pretty great and having them all in one place as the Actors’ Network has is actually saving money.

So that’s enough of the practical stuff.  I’ve been watching the Olympics and it’s made me think about how much I want to go for the gold so to speak.  I want to make my dreams come true and I hope I can take the right steps to make that happen.  At least I’ve been paid to act and actually had a play starring myself in a major city-wide festival.  And I went to the same school Emily Watson attended.  It’s a start.

I have an audition on Saturday for a short musical student film about fingers on a hand that have lost contact with their body.  It sounds cool.  I’m wondering how they’re going to film it.

So anyhow, get out your rosaries and pray for my success.
