I think the most fun thing about Facebook is having all of your old boyfriends find you there and then send you a private message. lol While I was at my class at Cartoon Network everyone was busy posting on my wall about my movie, the Spirit Awards, Sundance…..you name it…..they were talking. My phone was blowing up while I was in class with Facebook notifications but I couldn’t really look at my phone while we were all working. I ended up shutting it off because it was vibrating so much. I didn’t remember to turn it on until I stopped at Ralph’s to get some dinner. It was already 10pm by the time I got there, but while waiting in line I thought to turn my phone on and I starting going thru my e-mails. My sweetie had sent me a picture of the painting he is working on so I was really enjoying looking at that and then I suddenly heard all of the Facebook chimes. Omg……so many old boyfriends from the past suddenly resurfaced. And Wow…..did they ever change. (Not necessarily for the better.) I wonder if they think I have changed a lot. They wrote very complimentary things under my pictures so I guess they think I look ok, but I’m not so sure about them. haha. It made me think about my sweetie. He is soooo gorgeous so I wonder what he looked like in high school. I am quite sure he was popular in high school and probably just as cute as he is now. He is just so cool, adorable, successful…….and hot!!! I wasn’t necessarily popular in high school because I was in the stoner/skateboarder crowd. I guess I was popular with the stoners but I wasn’t destined to do anything wonderful. haha. So funny to think back. I think most of those people are still stoners. And I have definitely moved on. Although I still enjoy a bowl every now and then. haha.
I was listening to a really interesting voice over podcast and one of the speakers spoke about relationships with clients. What he said really rang familiar with me. Sometimes clients know that we need the money and they are having cash flow problems too so actors tippy toe around the client and allow us to grovel for the money. They ignore our terms and pay us when they feel like it. He talked about having to break up with clients when the relationship becomes so out of balance it’s not healthy. He said “sometimes the healthiest thing you can do for a relationship is to end it.” Wow. What a powerful statement. I think that this is not only good advice for client relationships but maybe for other relationships as well. In one of my relationships I am starting to feel that I’m giving 90% and the other person only 10%. Sometimes we are more balanced but not too often. And it’s my own fault. Either I need to be ok with this……..or end it. If thinking about it takes too much away from other aspects if my life well then hell yeah…….I’ll end it. But I don’t have to worry about it right now. I’m too busy and probably won’t see them for a really long time anyway so it’s not a concern. At least not today. Lol
I had no idea today would be so busy. I knew that I had two auditions to crank out but I ended up with seven, plus one last minute actual job from Europe as well. The auditions were so fun. 6 of them were for national commercials from my Chicago agent. They were really fun to record, and heaven knows I truly could use a national commercial (as far as the money goes.) That would help out immensely. I have so many upcoming expenses and now that I am maintaining two households…….well…..yikes….I’m so stretched.
Tomorrow is Hollywood again. I can’t wait to see Collette. She is absolutely amazing. For tomorrow night I selected an evil person for my voice over script. She gave a huge folder of scripts to choose from so I looked carefully thru the lot. Last week we talked about how I have been auditioning for video games but have yet to book a huge one. She said it could be because I might not be bitchy enough. She said she needs to see “the bitch” in me. I really had to laugh to myself when she said that. Everyone thinks I’m so nice, but my friends and family know otherwise. I mean, yeah, I am a really sweet person, but omg…..cross me and you will be sorry. lol So I think this “evil person” script will serve me well.
Tuesday night is with the casting director for Newsroom. She is going to e-mail me my script. I have already enlisted my friend in Woodland Hills to meet up with me and help me with that script. She is an amazing coach so if we work up the script Tuesday morning, and I practice all Tuesday afternoon…..I should be good to go by Tuesday night.
I have so much to get done in LA, meet up with friends, run, workout, and these classes. Plus, auditions and recordings. It will be a busy week.
I’m so glad my kids watched the Oscars with me. I thought Ellen killed it!!! I love her. In the middle of all of that I got my son’s laundry done, we ate an amazing dinner, and we had a lot of laughs. I showed my son my audition for the Criminal Minds casting directors (it’s on YouTube,) and I played him my State Farm VO auditions. As always he thinks I’m awesome. So fun to have kids that think you are amazing. lol
Ok time to answer all of my texts, watch Snapchats, e-mails……..I hope I can blow thru all of this quickly. I want to go to bed early and get on the road fairly early in the morning. But…..there are quite a few to go thru. lol
