I'm watching the premiere of "Crowned" right now. I've been told that I 'shouldn't' like/ watch/ support reality TV (because it puts legit actors out of work), but I believe TV is for entertainment and reality TV by and large entertains me.
This show is so ridiculous that I just might stick with it. Who can't use a little hilarity in their life?
Anyhoo--a few things:
On Friday I had a voiceover audition (my second ever), and it rocked. It was for a promo for a new Trent Reznor videogame. I left the booth thinking "I can DO this!!"
ON a sad note, I had to have my pet lovebird Lele put to sleep on Friday morning. It was sad. She was so sick, and I had done all I could do, but she still wasn't getting better (on the contrary). Rather than run tests on her, try surgery, and a whole bunch of other stuff I opted to have her euthanized. I think it was the most humane thing to do. She was 16 years old and was lively, feisty, and a real joy up until the very end. I hope I am so lucky when it's my time to go. Hope it's not soon though.
This has been a great year career-wise, but I got burned out from working around the clock. I have not yet written down my goals for 2008, but one of them will be to fit my career into my life rather than fitting my life into my career. For a long time I've thought that having a successful career (for me) was the end goal. Lately I've begun to think differently. I think this is just one experience in a long list of experiences that I will have in my life. There are so many things that I want to do in my lifetime, and to tie myself to any one thing forever would be to deny myself the opportunity to grow.
I am doing my best to build my "empire," and put some things in place so that I can be financially stable, while at the same time affording myself the chance to pursue some other ventures, and travel. This is my life, and I want to grab it by the tail and ride it until the end of the road.
