I just had an audition! Also got a photo back from one of the shoots I did last week:
Now I'm studying for next week's EMT exam. I'd be stressed if I weren't feeling good after doing said audition and last week's shoots!
"But now I'm feeling like I want to try to do some things that I want to do, even though the marketplace is crazy. So I'm trying to figure that out."
- John Turturro
After shooting scenes on Monday and Saturday, I'm feeling satiated through creativity! Now I'm getting ready to model tomorrow, Tuesday, and Thursday, training to teach CPR next weekend, and I'm still training to be an EMT through all of this. Sound like a full enough schedule? #overextended
"I'm a really nervy person, so I need to feel calm and so on. Part of being an actor is to learn about as many people as I can, to take it all on board...and there is a need for me to do that." - Guy Pearce
Thank you to everyone who came to the show! It felt so good to perform in a theatre again.
Now I'm getting ready for two shoots this week (I know! Two!!), so things are looking pretty awesome!
Happy Halloween/All Hallows Eve/Samhain!
"I'm not sure that I want to be without some lack of confidence. If you are too sure of yourself, you don't grow. You may feel confident in some things, but other fields come up as a challenge. And if you don't anticipate trouble, you will be in trouble." - Lucille Ball
Thank you to everyone for your Happy Birthday wishes!
I was sad to see that my spectacularly talented colleague and friend, Van Dirk Fisher, has passed away, but I'm happy that Tim and I were able to be there for his memorial service. Van was the creator of the Riant Theatre (Riant is French for 'joyful, exuberant,' which I feel is such a fitting way to describe Van as a person), and through his theatre he created the renowned Strawberry One Act Festival and the Jocunda Music, Film, & Theatre Festival. Thank you for being my friend while you were here, Van. Tim and I are sending so much love to your family.
On Saturday, 10/30, I am getting to play Margot Lane in a theatre production of The Shadow at the Actors Guild Hall. I and my fellow cast-mates would love to see all of you there! Here are the details:

I have a shoot next week! Also had a great audition yesterday.
For right now, though, Major Buttons wants to play hide-and-seek, so that's what we'll do!
"In creating any kind of art at this scale it can feel a lot like baking a cake in the dark. You can have all the right ingredients but in the end you really don’t know how it will come out." - Ashley Romans
I have another audition for this coming week and another shoot for the next one! I also just made brownies. I'd say that makes for a good end of this week and good starts for the next two!
"I love my characters. I play them with 100% honesty; there's no holding back. I understand where they are coming from." - Michael Kenneth Williams
I had an awesome audition! Now I'm gearing up for an awesome shoot, which will of course be a blast. Even so, it's going to be a challenge to keep myself awake an upright for a bit after the HIIT class I just did at the gym, which has turned my arms into Jello.😐 #gymfun
"I certainly came up in an era where women were really making strides and making a point to beat down doors and find their place and crash through the glass ceiling." - Gina Torres
I've been booked to act in three scenes! We shoot in the next two weeks. It feels really good to have upcoming acting work!
"As an actor, I've given up judgment of evil, as long as it's human evil - we have to see ourselves for what we really are, and we're capable of horrific things."
- John Carroll Lynch
I have an audition I'm really excited about! I'm also really tired. Should make for some good dreams😊
"I was so determined. It was something crucial to my life." - Kate Winslet
I know I'm a day late, but I'm at least happy I'm not missing another week. I'm just feeling a little overextended at the moment. Thanks for bearing with me, everyone❤
