When Opportunity Becomes Real

23 Aug

So, I got the job and the part… now what!? Well, before I begin completely freaking out, I have to remind myself to Celebrate! Yay! This is what I strive for– so, yay! go me!

Ok, now freak out. Both shows occur in October, so for about a month I will be working on both simultaneously, which is, yeah, insane. But what am I going to do? Turn down an opportunity I’ve worked so hard to get? HELL no. I can make it work. If I can make it work, then why would I not do them both?

This is further proof that the more you put yourself out there, the higher the return. Even if these two opportunities are not directly related, it is no coincidence that I got them both. That’s the way the world works. I truly believe that you get what you put out. Which is why it is so vitally important to always be working on something, always submitting to breakdowns, always do those favors for your actor/producer/director friends– you never know where any of it will take you.

    Congrats! That’s so good to hear! I’m glad the wheel has spun back around in your favor.

    Looking forward to the glory stories of a sleep-deprived schedule of non-stop rehearsals and performances!

      Thanks, Nate!

      And you’re so right– those stories of a sleep-deprived schedule are coming up! Speaking of, what time is it? 1:30am?! And still so much to do…
