Guess who had another audition and another one coming up this week? I know, I know, me! You didn't see that coming, I'm sure. It just feels good to be doing something creative! With things still being so chaotic in so many different ways, playing a character for even the brief amount of time I get to during an audition helps me find hope in some way. If you're looking for a way to not get lost in the general hopelessness that can swallow us (war, genocide, hatred of whichever marginalized group, inflation, etc), I would recommend finding a creative outlet for you to bask in. For that matter, find ways to surround yourself by more of what makes you happy! I know many of you have one or more adorable critters you care for, or how about a favorite pastime? There's always something that we can do to help ourselves feel a little bit better, a little more sane. I wish for each of you to find a way to find happiness in some way. It can be a bit much to ask at times, I know, but I don't feel it's too much to ask for anyone.
What makes you happy?

Between auditions, interview requests, modeling work, and CPR training, it's been a rather busy past two weeks! Also been booked for a theatre reading, so I'll let all of you know the details when I have them.

More fun auditions and I'm enjoying helping Tim with one of his, too!
How are all of you doing? Things are really tough right now, so I hope all of you are feeling okay, or as okay as possible.
I've added ways to help Ukrainian refugees and refugees from other wars/occupations in my past few blog entries, but do you want to help Ukrainians fighting on the front lines, too? Here are some options:
