Life in Act-uality

Tales of an aspiring actor/adult

Getting specific part 2

So after reviewing some of my earlier posts i realize that I an maybe see a pattern of unspecificty even in my writing! truthfully the posts I wrote initially sounded like more of an actress than mine do now. I may not be getting auditions at the moment, but I wasn’t then either! I didn’t even have an agent! So what has changed. I have stopped caring about connecting to an actor community.. Read More

Amendment: doing BETTER work

I had a couple kick in the pants moments this week remindng me to buckle down and really focus on doing the best work i can with the work i am doing at the moment. Not in being the best person I can be at this stage of my life, but in doing good, noble work. And this is uncomfortable too. At work, in health, in play. Prioritizing what we need- time ,space,  etc… Read More

Hard work

  So I’ve been trying to do the “being more specific” thing i was talking about last week. and i’m not going to lie it’s been pretty hard. A ) hard to make specific “intentions”. I can make a great to do list just fine  but what’s my intention overall?? What am I intending to do when i send an email, when i browse facebook, when I’m in class? Is super hard to.. Read More

What to do, what to do (a non specific title for a specific post)

I write to you caught up in that beautiful part of sundays where I can see the horizon of a new week, but still putting to rest the old one. Aka the perfect time to write. This week in my acting class my teacher told me I was being too general, I wasn’t being specific enough… kind of a really irritating note. I mean what am I really supposed to do with that?..

#$@# caution

SO tonight I am sitting at home despite my desire to go to class- I left home early because it was snowing- only for it to STOP snowing. But I mean I was also feeling tired at work, so felt ah well I can just go home and nap. I want to be able to start treating this like I’m a high-level performer again. Like back when I was an athlete. Recently after.. Read More

Musings in Snowpocalypse

I open my facebook and  am reminded of people who dont like me yet I’m still friends with them???? have better career or schooling choices than me are travelling more places than me are getting more auditions than me making more money than me are all seemingly in..

More to be learned

I’m not sure why but “more to be learned” was my title of choice today. And maybe thats the truth. It’s been a a weird, scary  couple of weeks friends. 1. This concussion business has kind of thrown me and the people around me for a bit of a loop. Truthfully I cant’t help but judge  almost every moodiness of mine , or any flicker of headache as symptom of a greater issue rather.. Read More

Feeling valued CTND

Well one week later and MY GOD do my words about finding my voice and feeling valued ring true. On  Monday I fell at work-  giving myself a black eye and a concussion in the process . So basically this week have just been resting and lounging about, as everyone at work takes on an extra load for me while I’m away. Now it’s been great to see my body recover, but I don’t..

Feeling valued

7 days into 2017 and already it’s been a bit of learning curve as i navigate finding a stronger voice, and being myself. This week has been all about feeling valued. I got two auditions this week ( in january? WHAT?!! CRAZY! GAH I LOVE MY NEW AGENT!!!!!!!!) for commericals, which enough said- were strange and hilarious and weird.  It was affirming to be in the expereience again, running into old actor friends.. Read More
