Chasing the Dream...Day 144

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 :)

xoxo

you must have just come into the auditioning part of entertainment. sometimes you are rejected over and over again until you just give up. if that's the case maybe you don't need to be in this business
