Monday, February 21st Update

8 Comments Career, Family

Good morning!
So, about that Disney audition… Didn’t get it. Got an email that night saying it was between me and another actress. I can’t tell you how often I get that email. Then I found out I didn’t get it the following morning.
Now, before you go feeling all sorry for me… Don’t. This is my job. I audition for work and I book a small percentage of those auditions. That’s how it goes.

Tomorrow I have a pilot audition that I’m really looking forward to. It’s for an hour-long drama and the character is very cool. Now, had I booked that Disney show? I wouldn’t have been able to go to this audition tomorrow because I’d be working. SO… I’m also a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. (Even though sometimes I bitch and moan about it.) Whether or not I book the job I’m auditioning for tomorrow, it’s an important one. I’m meeting casting directors and producers that I’ve never met, and that can be invaluable.

So, that’s my update for today. I’ve got to go do a few errands and get home so I can hang with the little man who’s not in school today! Okay, I’m not gonna lie. Two of my errands are all about looking better for tomorrow. I need my bangs cut, and I’m getting a spray tan. SO weird.

    Tell me the name of the dumbass who didn’t give you the part and I will send Kate to kick him in the knee.

    Seriously, though, I absolutely believe that we are all where we are meant to be and all things, whether we perceive them as good or bad, happen as they need to, as they are meant to. So, I wish you tremendous love and luck as you audition tomorrow. May what is meant to be and what you wish to happen be one and the same.

    There is a little of Christine in me. I could run down the people who didn’t cast you in the Disney gig. We know who would be best.
    Good luck today. Love you lots whether you get the job or not.

      Mom, the thought of you running down someone who didn’t give me a job will carry me through the rest of my auditions from now until Eternity!!! This is one of those times I wish you lived around the corner so I could run to your house and give you a big hug. Love you too!!!
