I’m squeezing another blog post in before March begins. March 10 is my birthday and it’s also my grandpa’s birthday. My parents and grandpa are coming down for a week for my birthday. My grandma died two weeks ago and I just feel awful without her. She was the best grandma ever. I couldn’t attend the funeral because of my nutty schedule so I sent my Mom a paragraph to put in the eulogy. I’m beginning this post on a personal note, but I couldn’t help it.
I had a great time onset for the short film now called “College Network.” I’m not sure when it will be posted, but you’re sure to love it. In other news, I will now officially have a new agency. I am signing with Dani’s Agency, a real SAG-franchised and highly respected company. I am certain that this partnership will work well. So there will be no more giving out my personal contact info online or via e-mail for auditions. I have also sworn off the community theatre and student films for the most part. I refuse to be considered or treated as an amateur ever again. I wonder how many years I must go on until the industry at large considers me a professional contender. I watched the Oscars and I was thinking about how cool it would be to actually be there. I wonder what I would wear. With my luck, I’d probably lose a sequin, rip a seam, or have my dinner land on my $10,000 couture dress. I don’t even know if you can dry clean those. A sobering reminder is that almost everyone there is in the 1% of SAG members and millionaires. I have weird luck so I just might end up part of the club. Why not?
I continue with the certification for my jobby job and a passing score on a math test stands between me and admission to the formal part of the program. Acting is hard enough without this problem coming up. I have to get a tutor and do more on-line tutorials.
