An Actor's Story

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

I’ve been looking at necklaces all night online.  I just love necklaces and I have had many favorites but I have lost some of the best ones I had.  I found a really cool heart one at my Mom’s house and I took it (she said I could. lol)  But I want to get another one that isn’t so long.  I love ones with hearts.  This one came in my inbox last night and I thought “oh good” I can forward this to my kids, thinking maybe they could get it for me for Christmas.  Then I realized the e-mail was from Tiffany.  haha.  My kids couldn’t afford it.  I need to send them ideas from H&M or Forever 21. lol

Awww I love this.  To me there is something really special and sensual about holding hands.  I love it.  It makes me feel close, secure, and solidly “one.”  One couple, one relationship, one unit…..facing the world together. And deeply in love. ;)

I instantly saw “LOVE,” “HONESTY,” “LUST,” “SUCCESS,” and “FUN,”  in that exact order.  Interesting because with him I feel filled with love, honesty, lust and fun.  And I feel on the brink of amazing success (with him as my witness.) lol

Rock Quotes

When it all goes crazy and the thrill is gone
The days get rainy and the nights get long
When you get that feelin’ you were born to lose
Starin’ at your ceiling, thinkin’ of your blues

When there’s so much trouble that you want to cry
The world has crumbled and you don’t know why
When your hopes are fading and they can’t be found
Dreams have left you waiting friends have let you down

Just remember I love you
And it’ll be all right
Just remember I love you
More than I can say
Maybe then your blues will fade away

When you need a lover and you’re down so low
You start to wonder but you never know
When it feels like sorrow is your only friend
Knowing that tomorrow you’ll feel this way again

When the blues come callin’ at the break of dawn
The rain keeps fallin’ but the rainbow’s gone
When you feel like cryin’ but the tears won’t come
When your dreams are dyin’ when you’re on the run

Just remember I love you
And it’ll be all right
Just remember I love you
More than I can say
Just remember I love you
And it’ll be all right

I’ve been talking to friends that have young children and this book came up with one of my friends.  She has a 3 year old and a 5 year old.  This book is probably for about that age range.   When my kids were this young I used this book constantly.  If my kid threw a tantrum, refused to cooperate, refused to eat dinner, was mean to other kids, acted up…….out came this book.  I would make my kid sit down while I read this book.  Children love it when parents read to them.  It is such an engaging activity.  So “one on one,” which is what children crave.  Particularly in families where there are two or more children.  Even if my child was over the top out of control, they would sit still for the reading of this book.  The little bear in the book is mean to his friends (the lamb, dog, pig, etc.)  They call him bossy and don’t want to play with him.  He kicks the swing, is mean to his grandpa, and refuses to eat his lunch.  His parents make him go to his room to take a nap.  He screams, kicks, and hollers…..until he falls asleep.  When he wakes up his mom puts a cold washcloth on his forehead, he goes out to the kitchen and eats his lunch, he is kind to his grandparents, and then goes down to the school yard to make amends with his friends.  
My kids loved this book and it always calmed them down and they were always nice after reading this book.  Unfortunately over the years I must have donated it when getting rid of large lots of books.  Last year at Christmas I decided to buy it from Amazon (out of print but a few sellers have copies,) and I gave each of them a copy for them to use with their own children.  They are 21 and 25 years old.  No kids yet, but who knows.  At least they will be equipped with a classic. haha.

I’ve been reading a lot about racism (in America mostly.)  Yes……..it is huge and exists at all levels.  I’m Mexican, most of my friends are black, but I also have many white friends.  I also have white and black relatives.  Honestly……….I have heard racist remarks from all three groups.  Most people that just meet me have no idea what I have endured (a lot,) and of course my black friends have me beat. lol  But….for me, a good rule of thumb is to allow everyone into my life with a clean slate.  They might be white (ancestors of all the bad guys who killed Native Americans, took away all the “40 acres and a mule,” and stole California away from Mexicans and called it the United States.  But……these white people who I am just forming friendships with, had nothing to do with those happenings so long ago.  And usually they themselves do not condone what happened.  Can they be blamed?  Of course not.  I found out that I am related to Pancho Villa.  Hopefully no one blames me for what he did.  Yikes!  So…..I will continue to make new friends and give everyone a clean slate.  But…….one racist remark out of their mouth and they are out of my life forever.  That’s a deal breaker.  My loved ones and I have suffered too much.  We will let you into our lives.  If you cross us…..you are toast!!

Giving

Learning to become a “giver” does take some practice (and some reminders. lol) Being a “giver” doesn’t mean that you don’t address your own needs. It just means that you are open, giving, and non-judgemental………for we are all dealing with some personal issues that others know nothing about. When you find yourself out in public, looking at those around you…….remember that they are someone’s daughter, son, parent, grandparent, loved one………..and they might need a touch of kindness. Send a silent “vibe” of love to this person or group of people. It can only help…….and it can never hurt. ;)

All dogs go to heaven!

This is me!!!  I seriously miss street dancing.  Skateboarding and street dancing totally defined me as a young adult.  No rules, no commitments, no promises, no guarantees.  Those terms made us remain raw, expecting nothing from no one.  No expectations.  No disappointments.
