Refreshed And Ready again I must apologize for not updating you like I should but these have been some of the toughest weeks . I have had some down days with bad auditions and great auditions but was not right for the part. One key thing about auditioning is you just have to get your name out there. Even if you're not right for that particular part, if you do a great job the casting director WILL remember. My brother told me before I moved to NY "Auditioning is your full-time job, a show is the vacation." That has to be the truest statement I've heard so far. Auditioning is a skill and practice makes perfect.

With all that being said.........everybody and I mean EVERYBODY needs a break to rekindle the flame for their passion. Sometimes life throws you for a loop and the very thing that makes you happy can feel like a burden. Take some time to yourself to gather your thoughts and feelings. For lent instead of sacrificing I decided to add prayer to my day 3 times a day no matter what I am doing. It has helped me tremendously! I also go to open mic nights or events where I can hear people sing. The atmosphere makes me appreciate my art and fall in love with it all over again. It's an environment where there's no pressure, no judging, just people who appreciate your talent for what it is. I was forced to sing at the open mic night last Sunday lol and had so much fun rockin' the stage. Even when I didn't know the words I free-styled.
My joy was restored that night and this week I took that same attitude and passion in my auditions. Casting directors sat back in the chairs, rocked side to side with their eyes closed and said, "wow that was amazing." I'm ready once again to take over New York!!! ::sips tea:: Until next time Be blessed!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.(Philippians 4:6)
