Tallahassee Tomorrow!

Good news: My car is fixed! It was the throttle that wasn't working. They took it out and cleaned it and took care of it for free! So my car won't be a huge money pit yet again this year.
 Last night I got a call from an MFA cinematographer at FSU, and he needs help with his reel and is getting actors and models together to help him put together some creative scenes for his reel. He is using the Red Cinema Camera, which is the same camera used to film Pirates of the Carribbean. Really good quality. It's not a student film, but it's definitely film experience. He offered to take some headshots, too. I think I might just go up to Tallahassee tomorrow instead of going to Boca. I know the area better, and I can't afford the gas and missing work Thursday.

Ah, the sad financial circumstances of a poor college student. Either way, I'm happy.

Thoughts You Could Care Less About

I really need to start writing in this thing more often. Ehhh but I'm so busy and lazy. Let's see... news... news... news... oh! The Music Man was a success, we almost sold out every night and I had a blast. Things are picking up at work. More hours = more money. I'm gonna post some more videos soon of me singing as well. Stay tuned for that. I have an audition Thursday for a spokesperson role in a campaign video for a theater company that is part of a philanthropy foundation in Boca Raton. AND my car is not working properly. If this car thing isn't resolved soon, I might not be able to make the five hour drive to the audition. Come to think of it, I might not be able to go at all. If my car is gonna cost an arm and a leg to fix, I'm not gonna be able to afford to stay in Boca if I DO get the role, let alone gas for the audition. Either way, I don't really think things will be working in my favor. Not a happy camper. So not happy that I threatened my car with beating it with a sledgehammer and leaving it for a younger, prettier car.

Do you think maybe that was too harsh?

Update on Diet

  So, due to the 4th of July holiday and being in a rush constantly with rehearsals, work, and gym time, my "lifestyle alteration" has been shot to hell. I feel like I took one step forward and two back. I didn't gain any weight, mind you, but I feel like I've been eating all the wrong foods and I'm retaining water because of it. My great efforts towards that six-pack I've wanted since I was 12 are being set back.

  I guess this is the point where I step back and evaluate how realistic my expectations are with this diet thing...
