SETC state screenings were this past weekend and I traveled to Montevallo to audition with a piece from Othello (I did a monologue spoken by Emilia). A week from tomorrow I have auditions for Moby Dick at Alabama and then in the upcoming weeks I will have auditions for the Senior Showcase that will be in NYC in March. November 6th are auditions in Birmingham for Titus Andronicus and Fahrenheit 451 (which I can only attend if I am not cast in Moby Dick) and then before I know it I will be attending UPTAs in Nashville along with other various auditions for grad programs and professional work. Ay ya ya!
There is so much going on, and I am so thankful that I have the means to attend these auditions and continue to follow and pursue what I have wanted to do since I was 4 years old playing Dorothy in my living room. I wouldn't change a moment of my overly hectic life for anything, because it is what I love to do. Yes, life isn't always lovely in the theatre and yes, I get frustrated at not having time for normal things like laundry and hanging out with friends, but what is more fun than working and having a great time at the same time? It sure beats working in a cubicle for the rest of my life. :)
Live and love (and never give up on your dreams),
