An Actor's Story

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

Dang!  I just saw you but I really miss you.  And you are going away!!!!! Yikes!!!  How will I survive? lol  
Kinda funny because I’m getting ready to send off the first four days of my VO journal to my friend.  He is going to review them and then ask layperson questions at the end of each day.  I just read back through my four day diary and a part of me thinks it will be interesting to voice actors and the general population, but…….another part of me thinks it is dumb.  I am a bit afraid to send it to him.  He told me last night he is looking forward to reading it.  He is my friend.  A good friend for over 10 years.  I should feel confident sending him the pages…….but I don’t.  I think I will wait a few hours.  I am going to the movies in about an hour with my kids.  We won’t be home until midnight.  Maybe then I can send off the pages.  haha.  I don’t know why I am suddenly lacking confidence.  I am usually a super confident chick…….but not right now.  Ok….I’ll see how I feel in a few hours. ;)

Interesting that this popped up right now.  I was just telling my sweetie today at lunch that I often write down what I want to have happen in my life and often times most things come true.  And I think it happens because I truly believe it will!  The things that don’t happen are the things that I still do not feel 100% confident about. I have to figure out the blocks and then work through them.  There is one huge thing on my wish list that hasn’t happened yet.  It feels like I’m getting closer and closer but I’m just not there yet.  I’m not sure what the block is.  This requires some serious thought and meditation.  haha.  I’m not worried about it though.  I’m in a great place right now in my life. ;)

Wow….this pictures says so much.  I don’t think I have ever seen a groom hug his new wife like that.
I was recently listening to a podcast and they were asking everyone if they cry at weddings.  One person told of a time that he cried.  He said that when the bride came down the aisle and everyone looked at the groom the entire crowd broke down and cried. The groom was crying and couldn’t take his eyes off of his new wife.  I guess the guest list was extremely close to the bride and groom and it took a long time for them to work things out to be able to be married. He didn’t reveal all of the details but he said “Everyone knew how much they had been through to be together finally and it broke everyone down.”  When he told the story…..I imagined the couple to look like this.  So very sweet. ;)

Social Media Slut

I’ve been working on my friend’s Facebook “page” on and off all day trying to get the “likes” up.  I did it before for my friend’s music page and I got quite a following for him.  Oddly enough it truly translates into sales so if that is your ultimate goal, then you need to play the game.  Sometimes people get really turned off to the whole game, but I think there is a way around that.  Don’t be a slut.  

My time spent on social media is quite planned out.  I pick certain times to make the “investment,” and then I’m off……..forgetting all about it.  Play the game on your terms and then feel free to let it go.  Or……hire an intern and completely forget about it.  

In all honesty I  think of myself as “old school.”  I actually carry around a hand written calendar.  I’m a very “visual” person and my phone calendar just wasn’t cutting it.  I need to see the days with activities written in each little box (dentist, audition, visit mom, pick up RX, Max’s flea medication.)  On another note, I am extremely techy so I hide my old school calendar because my friends are sure that I have some amazing super cool app that keeps track of my every move.  Yes, I love apps, my smart phone, and I love social medial.  I wouldn’t have a clue what my 40 cousins are up to if it weren’t for Facebook.  I wouldn’t have a free plate of french fries waiting for me at Izzy’s if Yelp “check in” didn’t exist.  I wouldn’t know what casting directors are up to if it weren’t for Twitter (where they are brutally honest.)  If I didn’t have that super cool parking app I would be carrying around 10 thousand quarters.  

And we can’t forget about Tumblr.   Ah yes……Tumblr.  The platform where I can pour my heart out and not bother anyone.  Tumblr doesn’t roll it’s eyes at me.  Tumblr doesn’t listen politely and then ask “where’s the remote.”  Tumblr doesn’t judge.  And most of all, Tumblr doesn’t talk back.  I love Tumblr. :)

One of these days I may truly go “off the grid” for a week or more.  But not right now.  No…….not right now.

And we don’t see eye to eye,
My heart needs protection……….and so do I.”

So, I was submitted for The Young & The Restless.  My agent knows that I was on the soap all those years and I know the new casting director.  We will see.  lol  I actually wouldn’t mind a gig like that again.  Good money.  At least then I would be able to finance my film.  
I finished up the voice over auditions for the day, now waiting to hear if I have a callback for this new film.  I hope so.  It seems like a great script.  And they liked that I have a tattoo.  I didn’t have to hide it.  
I can’t wait for my other two movies to come out.  I hope we have some screenings so I can see how they came out.  LA has been slow these past few weeks but that’s ok.  I needed the rest.  
Life is good!!
