Last Tuesday, I had an audition. I go to Southern California with my mom. Every time. This time, my dad had the day off work, so I decided to go with him. Honestly, I don’t think my mom was too happy that I asked him to take me. My acting career isn’t something my dad deals with because he is too busy. He supports me, but isn’t always able to attend because of work. I understand. This time, he had a day off work, so I wanted to do something more than just drive down, do a 2 minute audition, and drive home. I decided we were going to go to the Griffith Observatory. I had always wanted to go! They filmed the movie “The Rocketeer” There, one of my favorite movies. My audition was over by 11:45 and it took about 15 minutes to drive there. Because there was some filming going on in Griffith park, we had to park on a road down the mountain a bit and hike up. Once we were there, the view was amazing! Very smoggy, but still a great view! The inside of the observatory had displays and interactive things that taught about astronomy and the earth’s path, rotation, the moon, our solar system in general. They had a Tesla Coil and did a demonstration. So cool! I honestly don’t think I got the acting job, even though I kinda wanted it. I don’t know why, but I keep forgetting to bring head shots and resumes with me when I audition! My dad is probably going to take new headshots this weekend of me because I was talking with him and we decided I really need some new ones. Even if I didn’t get the acting job, I’m still glad I went because I got to hang out with my dad.

Again with not posting for a while! Sheesh! What is with me?! What is going on? Oh, yeah. I have been going to Los Angeles EVERY WEEKEND except 4 for the last 5 months! It has been CRAZY and AWESOME!

In January, I joined a gym! A few weeks ago, I signed up for a 5K Rave Run n the Bay Area. I’m absolutely thrilled for this event! I’m excited!

So this summer, I am doing two classes online, traveling to Los Angeles as much as I can for jobs and auditions and to see my brother, working out, getting a bit of sun, hopefully a part-time job. This summer is going to be radically different than any summer I’ve ever had.

Before summer can actually start, I need to finish this semester of school! The next three weeks are going to be exceptionally stressful!

I am still a full-time student Monday-Thursday and then I travel on the weekends! However, things are changing.School finishes on April 30th. I did NOT get into either of the summer shows with my local theater company. Don’t ask me why. I have no idea why I didn’t get in. I did audition.So, my summer is COMPLETELY free! I am planning on taking two summer school classes. Both are online, so it won’t tie me down from traveling this summer. I need to talk with an academic counselor at school to find out how many more classes I need to graduate or transfer.Also, I want to start vlogging again this summer! It might be a bit boring at times, but you will be able to see me travel and how I deal with it!

I added my new projects and credits to my “Job Experience” page, but I need for some of them to finish filming before I can post them. I already have them on the page, though, so I don’t forget them, so I have the page pending review before publishing my latest projects! Granted, all are background work, but I got paid for two of them!

I promise I will post more once I’m out of school for summer!
