Dearest Lorin...I don't have many pictures. Just my thoughts. I'll try and keep it brief. There are even headers so you can jump down and skip sections.
I know I haven't written in over a month and for that I sincerely apologize (mother) but I'm here...all is good and life is busy :)
So this past month has come and gone in a blur. I said back in February, I believe, that I wanted to be in a tv series by the end of the summer, Labor Day to be exact...and guess what? That dream came true! I play a supporting character on the new show "Colors of Love" that will air on the access channels in NYC and Minnesota. I think that's pretty cool. I'll let you know when it will air. We shot the promo awhile back and episode one last weekend which was pretty fun.
Season 1 Scripts...pretty cool huh?
(Next dream God...I would like to have a billboard in Times Square by the end of the year and I want to be in "Sparkle")
And...I've been back and forth to Philly a few times to meet with Casting Agents and it has been super fun. I got some really great feedback and they'd like to start working with me sooner than later (which is always a great sign) I'll be going there for an audition Thursday so hopefully I'll have something to shout about on Friday. Prayers prayed, fingers crossed.
Oh...also...Check out my first radio interview I did with The Air It Out Girls
Super fun :) Love those gals.
I think I've mentioned this before...but I simply believe that the things that come out of my mouth come true (hence the reason for this blog...keep me focused and hold myself accountable) ANYWAY!!
My friend and I are writing a show and so far we've been getting some really GREAT feedback from some really amazing people which has been awesome. And what surprises me, for lack of a better word, is how willing people have been to help. Lend support, read, find contacts, etc. to make this dream a reality. I'm honestly floored. I simply believe good things are bound to happen...this show will be on a major network SOON :)
Dear Jesus in Heaven I have to write a treatment for the show by tomorrow! Eek...I mean I did ask for favor and He's giving it to me super fast! Anybody know how to write one? Ya girl could really use some help!
I also attended the Rock 'n' Wine Presented by Vanity Fair at City Winery this past week celebrating the birthday of chef Mario Batali with special guests The Roots...um can I just say UH_MAZING!!! They play with so much passion and ugh, just everything. I feel it in my soul. Not to mention I got to watch from backstage..that tends to make everything a little better :) Thanks again! It was an amazing night.
I can't stress it enough. This lady is amazing. So supportive. She said to me the other day, "I know I'm not supposed to answer my phone at work but I have to answer the calls from you because I'm just waiting for the call that's going to change my life forever."
I mean seriously. How can you not love a person like that? I believe that's where I get my positivity and beliefs from...she's the type of person that when you stop believing, she keeps believing for you. I've often said that the one person that could possibly believe in my dream more than me would have to be my mom.
I'm so blessed to have people in my corner like her. My support system is ALL THAT!
So I just noticed that I have A TON of Yankee paraphenalia, like at this point, it's becoming a bit absurd. Cups and hats and tshirts and key chains, etc. I mean I love the logo, and I LOVE Curtis Granderson...but at some point enough is enough. I'm thankful though that I get free stuff so don't be surprised if you see the blue NY in your stocking this Christmas...just saying. But they're #1 in the East right now so you can't hate on a champ. Too bad I wasn't at work the day all of the team came into the restaurant...grrrr!!
Nonetheless I was down-south, where I can let my hair down :) with some amazing people eating some incredible food.
Can't get much better.
I would also be remiss if I didn't mention and pay respect to a really important day that just passed. September 11th will be embedded in my mind forever and I'll have to say my heart still goes out to those that lost loved ones on that tragic day. You will never be forgotten.
Earthquakes and Hurricanes
So if you've been paying attention at all to the weather you'd notice that NYC/Northeast got hit with a Hurricane and an Earthquake in like the same week. CRAZY! It was definitely one of the craziest moments of my life (the earthquake) never felt that before and def don't want to feel it ever again. Really makes you take a moment and think about what you have, what you've lost, what you've gained, and the person that you are. At least it did for me.
Babies and Weddings
1. My friend is getting married in JAMAICA!!! I'm soooo happy for them I can't even stand it.
2. I'm going to be an AUNT...you already know the baby shower has been planned. Excitement isn't even the word to explain how I feel.
Note to self(and all the people that may be thinking this):
I am HAPPY that this is happening to THEM....it is not my time for either. Thanks and have a nice day.
2 Year Anniversary
So as I embark on this journey called my life...I must say that my 2 Year Anniversary passed a few weeks ago and truly it feels like it has just flown by. Things have happened, I've moved. People have come and gone out of my life and in the end I can honestly say that I'm happy. God has truly blessed me and work has been steady and good. Even in the dark times, I still believe. If I thought the first 2 years were good, I can't wait to see what's in store for me next. THE BEST IS YET TO COME :)
