I struggled to get a blog post in today, but here I am. I woke up super early (as in 7am) to take my car into the shop before Steve needed to be at work. I had an important film audition today (ok, they are all important, but this was a particularly good opportunity), so he was generous enough to let me borrow his car for the day. Reeeeaaalllly hoping my car will be done by the end of today though. It needed its gear shift cables replaced...or something along those lines.
I have a love/hate relationship with auditions, as I'm sure most actors do. I'm always incredibly excited about them, but they also put me in a position where I am consumed with scrutinizing myself and wondering how I did. The waiting game afterwards is both fun, suspenseful, and agonizing at the same time. But I must say, the experience today was really fun and the audition was for a role I am very excited about. We'll see if I get asked to the second round of callbacks. I had my initial audition this morning (I was so tempted to sneak onto the set of "The Lying Game", an ABC Family series, which was filming in the lot next to my audition!), and was asked to come back again in the afternoon, after the director gave me some ways to rework the scene. It's always great to get notes and then have the chance to incorporate them later.
Anyway, as usual, I'm doing my best to just "let it all go" at this point. I'm having myself a little afternoon coffee break and watching Dirty Soap on my DVR. Hopefully I'll be motivated to get some work done after this...if I can quiet my brain and focus.
Tomorrow I will try and post a recap of my birthday weekend! I was awful about taking photos, but I'll see what I ended up with.
Hope you're having a great day! xx
