Today is a monumental day for me! I have been chasing my dreams vigorously for 100 days! So, let me catch you up on some of my most recent endeavors and what's up next for me.
I am still chasing a Copywriter position I am really interested in. My internship has yet to turn into something permanent and with my 90-days interning coming this Tuesday if it's not going to be something permanent, I have to move on. It's really unfortunate because I love it there. And, I will be doing some standup comedy at a local comedy club this coming Monday since I have been unable to land any parts on stage recently. I decided to create my own opportunities and this will be one. I also have an audition mid-July.
I am still pushing and I am even thinking about resurrecting I Love LuLu (my magazine) by doing it as a newsletter every month, instead.
I want to end on a positive note about my life as an artist because I usually end with what I didn't accomplish this week or that week or this day or that day. So, let me say this...
My whole life, since I was 3, I have created. I have been artistic. I have been a self-starter. I have been really ambitious. I would choreograph modern dance routines for me and my niece, I wrote songs at six, I started my own store at 9 (selling chips and soda to our bible study group at our house), I even organized and designed t-shirts for a fashion show in my parents basement. I've written two manuscripts, I edited and wrote (along with the help of 9 of my friends/family) my own magazine, I have interned for radio, TV, a magazine, online newsletter and had a PR internship, I have a college education, I have done several plays (1940's Radio Hour, Carmen, Tommy the Rock Opera, Anne of a Thousand Days (showcase for Detroit Rep's Actor's Workshop, I have been in a movie (InZero:Fragile Wings), I have driven myself around the country to live out of the box and out of my comfort zone and did tons of writing (press releases, poetry and a comedy routine). I have done a lot! And, if I were to die today, I would be happy and fulfilled. Sure, I haven't done any of those things on the level that I would like. But, I did it darn it! I did it! And, a lot of people can't say they have done a lot of the things they would like to do. I thank God for giving me the ambition, the fearlessness and the creativity to do what I love and if it goes to a higher level I thank HIM! If it doesn't I thank HIM! I'm still in my 20's and it has been one heck of a ride!
