I gotta say, I'm amazed that people are still apparently finding and reading this blog. It's been months since I wrote anything even remotely interesting.
Okay. It's been months since I wrote anything at all.
I can't promise that I'm going to update regularly, because doing that seems to mean that I don't. And that one time that I said I was quitting the blog, I became that person who said that, and then changed my mind two days later. I don't want to be that person. So I am making no promises at all.
Some things I have done recently or am doing currently (in case anyone out there is interested):
- Switched acting schools. It's an adjustment. I'd been at the same place for years and the new place is very different. I know it's good for me and that it's what I need, but it's also frustrating because it means working in a new and different and scary (and, I gotta say, effective) way. To be honest, the frustration is part of why I know it's the right move. I wasn't growing at my old school. I wasn't learning, and I wasn't working at a challenging level. It was time to move on. I feel weird about it, but ultimately I'm glad I did it.
- Took a trip. This was several months ago. I was dying to get out of Vancouver, so I took a quick jaunt down to L.A.. By myself. It was wonderful. I met some nice people, which I did not expect. I'll go back.
- Bit the bullet and auditioned for theatre for the first time since last year's disaster. It wasn't a typical theatre audition, which is why I decided to do it - it wasn't as scary. It went fine even though I didn't get cast, so that was good. It was actually kind of a weird audition, but that was about the director and the way it was set up. I'll work my way back to "typical" theatre auditions, I guess. Baby steps. (Weirdly, I have no problem auditioning for film and tv.)
By the way, it is World Theatre Day. Support your local theatre artists!! I am going to a play this weekend. You should, too.
And if you are in Canada, you should really, really see the film Hit n' Strum. If you are not in Canada, you should come here and see it.
That is all. For now.
