The cast list for RENT was posted today and I didn't get it. I gave it my all. I auditioned for two different productions. But, it just wasn't meant to be. I tried and did my best and that is all I can do. The hard part for me to swallow is that I don't really have anything to keep me distracted. I love theater! Love it! But, it is more than that right now-being back in Michigan is hard for me and doing theater/shows helps me stay distracted and focused. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to land a part this summer. So, maybe I will try again this fall for something. In the meantime, I am going to try to find a job or two that will allow me to save up some cash to get out of here again as soon as possible.
Tonight I supported an event in Detroit called BoxFest which showcases vignettes by local women directors. It was really good especially this one piece called Dodging the Bullet. I hope to be involved on some level one day. I asked someone who participated in the process how to get involved and I know what I have to do next year should I still be here and the opportunity affords itself.
I am still planning on publishing my children's book, The Pillowcase, which you can locate in the archives of this blog somewhere. I am still trying to figure out how I am going to finance the printing, but I have hope the answer will come to me.
I promise to keep pushing and not to give up. Perhaps, all of this rejection lately is preparing me for something big-soon?!!!
I am exhausted so goodnight for now :)
