I’ve been suffering from a bought of writer’s block. I can’t even say confidently that I am over it, but typically the best way to work through it is to write something—anything—even if it’s totally crap. So, that’s what I’m doing. I’ll use this as an opportunity to give you a little update on my life as of late.
The audition from last time I wrote . . . Well, I’m not really sure what happened there. I had a really great audition. I sang well. They actually guffawed out loud at my comedy song. They smiled, asked me questions, and then nothing. No call back. Not a word. I’m honestly a little confused. It was brought to my attention that I can’t actually legally work there since this particular theater operates under an URTA contract, which requires that actors either be Equity or students. Obviously, I’m neither. However, I know some people who are neither Equity nor students and have worked there, so it beats me. I’m taking this as a sign to focus my energies on other aspects of my career that I am hoping to develop such as the commercial audition I have tonight.
I am also pleased to report that I have completed two of the items on my 40/40 list:
1. Become a morning person.
11. Learn to forgive and forget.
In truth, these both snuck up on me. I realized that I had become a morning person when I slept until 7:30 a.m. and thought, “Oh, snap! I totally slept in today!” These days, I feel panicked if I wake up and the sun is too bright. I like to get up and do yoga while the sun is rising. Yes, my friends, I am now a morning person.
As for learning to forgive and forget, this is one that I have actively been working on for a long time. In my experience as soon as I forgive, I forget. It’s just that it takes me a long time to forgive. There was a particular person in my life whom I was having a lot of trouble forgiving. However, something good recently happened for this person, and I found myself surprised by the happiness I felt for their good fortune. I realized in that moment that I was no longer angry and that I had forgiven them. It was a good feeling.
Other than that, I’m getting more into yoga, chasing Scarlett for hours on end, and trying to maintain my sanity. The usual.
