An Actor's Story

Daily happenings in the life of an American actress, screenwriter and filmmaker. Auditions, bookings, travels, and tales.

So…I asked a professional organizer and decorator to stop by on Monday.  I’m getting a bit overwhelmed with the remodel not going exactly as planned.  I think mostly it needs someone with a good eye to help me finish this up.  The fact that it is half finished has stressed me out so much.  My work area is not flowing at all.  And it isn’t blending with my sleep area.  Everything needs to be extremely neat and organized.  I want soft lines, organized areas, small votive candles, the option of low lights or bright lights, and artwork properly placed.  I have some unique amazing pieces but I’m not quite sure how to display them.  And today I received my most treasured piece of all.  My sweetie is an amazing artist and he actually gave me one of his sketches.  I don’t think he has any idea how “over the top” happy that made me. It made me feel incredibly special.  Most creative people don’t just randomly hand out their creations so the fact that he let me take my pick……well……I can’t even begin to tell you how that made me feel.  I’m going to ask the decorator’s advice because I feel that I should have it framed and I want to make sure it compliments the style and feel of the piece.  She has amazing taste so I am sure she will advise correctly.  Anyway……just to have that sketch in front of me while I am working my voice over business……life doesn’t get any better than that. :)

Very true.  I’m always fighting battles that no one knows about and I never share that information because I figure that I can hang.  I can figure it out all on my own.  But sometimes it would be really nice to get a hug from someone who has no idea what I’m going thru. ;)

So I worked on this show yesterday and I signed hella shit that I didn’t read……so I’m not sure what I can say.  These dudes don’t seem as freaked out as most shows.  They seem cool and grateful for the publicity but…….who knows?  These days you never know.  Anyway, it was a very fun shoot day. 
I wanted to take my roommate and her boyfriend out for dinner but during the shoot my phone died and we went much longer than I anticipated.  I called her at 9:30pm (my phone finally charged while passing the Capital Record building in Hollywood on the 101,) and I asked if they already ate.  They had.  So….I stopped at Ralph’s on the way home to get a veggie wrap and some wine.  By the time I got home there were people visiting so I knew that I couldn’t really go to bed too soon.  But oh well.  It’s all good.  Nice people…..in casting…..so it’s all good for an actress.  I had tons of texts to answer too, so I kept myself busy with that. Tons of texts from about 4 different people.  One person in particular seems to know my likes and dislikes.  Interesting to say the least.  I’m very busy so…….I’m just gonna let this unfold as it is supposed to. ;)

Monologue

I’m still working on this monolgue!! I need It to be perfect when i meet with the agent on Saturday. Soon I also need to get out and run 3 miles, then work on my career some more. This is the busiest week ever. Luckily i only have to run 2 miles tomorrow. I’m so overbooked tomorrow It’s not funny. Ok, back to this monologue. Lol

Crystal Visión

Someone just asked me if I wanted a coupon for reading glasses. $5 off. I told her i didn’t need any but she gave it to me anyway. It is for Crystal Visión glasses. I actually wish I could buy glasses that could give me Crystal Visión. Then maybe i wouldn’t make so many mistakes. :(

Listen boy
Don’t want to see you let a good thing
Slip away

You know I don’t like watching
Anybody make the same mistakes
I made

She’s a real nice girl
And she’s always there for you
But a nice girl wouldn’t tell you what you should do

Listen boy
I’m sure that you think you got it all
Under control

You don’t want somebody telling you
The way to stay in someone’s soul

You’re a big boy now
You’ll never let her go
But that’s just the kind of thing
She ought to know

Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason to accept
That you’re for real

Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

Listen boy
It’s not automatically a certain guarantee
To insure yourself
You’ve got to provide communication constantly

When you love someone
You’re always insecure
And there’s only one good way
To reassure

Tell her about it
Let her know how much you care
When she can’t be with you
Tell her you wish you were there

Tell her about it
Every day before you leave
Pay her some attention
Give her something to believe

Cause now and then
She’ll get to worrying
Just because you haven’t spoken
For so long
Though you may not have done anything
Will that be a consolation when she’s gone

Listen boy
It’s good information from a man
Who’s made mistakes

Just a word or two that she gets from you
Could be the difference that it makes

She’s a trusting soul
She’s put her trust in you
But a girl like that won’t tell you
What you should do

Tell her about it
Tell her everything you feel
Give her every reason
To accept that you’re for real

Tell her about it
Tell her all your crazy dreams
Let her know you need her
Let her know how much she means

Tell her about it
Tell her how you feel right now
Tell her about it
The girl don’t want to wait too long
You got to tell her about it
Tell her now and you won’t go wrong
You got to tell her about it
Before it gets too late
You got to tell her about it
You know the girl don’t want
To wait—you got to
Tell her about it

Romance!!  Is it long gone…..or does it still exist?  

“She wanted something else, something different, something more. Passion and romance, perhaps, or maybe quiet conversations in candlelit rooms, or perhaps something as simple as not being second.”

—   Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook (via wall-lesswallflower)

Weird

I’m still thinking that it’s kinda weird that you can talk talk talk talk and not really get any response back. It’s one thing to be a quiet introverted person, but it is another thing to be completely rude.  Or just so completely anti-social they shouldn’t be allowed to exist.  lol  At least not in my life.  I’m starting to run out of patience.  I have too many options.  Now I just need to exercise them.  And I will.
