It was a week of excellent auditions, castings, webinars, and seminars. I've learned that I let myself get distracted way too easily (I know. BIG SURPRISE), and I need to stay focused on the direction I'm moving. Speaking of, I've got some work to do. Yes, I know it's the weekend, but it's still a workday here. There are no weekends in entertainment. No complaints on that on my end!

I'm feeling a little distracted today. It's a good distracted, so no worries, but I'm distracted none-the-less.
Here's a fabulous quote, and then we'll move along for now.
"I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it, and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't." - Lucille Ball
It's going to be an early morning, so I'll make this quick:
I had a double audition and double callback week (yay!), I'm in talks about a role that may or may not be being written for me, Tim and I went to see a friend's trial run of her one-woman show (go Julia Sun!), and now we're helping her do the rewrite. I'd call that a good week!
"As women we're taught early on to be polite, to be nice, to not make anyone uncomfortable. But I always remember this great line from a movie: "All we have...is all these years." We can fill those years with toxic, negative people or with fun, positive people." - Gabrielle Union
I shot a short film this week with New Media Comedy TV (the team is hilarious, and they're on YouTube. Go subscribe). As always, it was a high! Now I'm getting ready for my next fix: Tim and I have a film audition tomorrow, and I have a theatre audition following it. You could say I'm in a good mood, because I am.
I particularly love how I have personal experiences I can draw from for both of tomorrow's auditions. The first one calls for a woman who detests her ex-husband, since he is truly a terrible, manipulative person (yep. Been there.), and the second calls for a woman who is calm, optimistic, and understanding around not-so-reasonable people (I go there on a regular basis). I'd say this is a good sign!
I'm going to go make a hot cocoa and study my lines. For those of you watching the Superbowl, enjoy the game! For those of you not watching the Superbowl, enjoy doing whatever it was that you were doing.
