More with less.

It has been awhile since I’ve posted a detailed post. Perhaps I feel so busy, because I was so bored for so long; perhaps I am truly busy. Although I couldn’t wait for last week to end, it was a great experience. Working on my first film, with my first bit of legitimate equipment was a learning experience. I gained knowledge and friendships that I will appreciate always. I am excited, because we are planning a wrap party for the weeks to come.

With the end of one project, I am beginning a new one. I am going to begin pursuing my dreams for real. This Friday I am starting the journey with new headshots. Although I will be alone in the process, I am excited. I’ve been told that good headshots can really help your career. I got a call from MTV today; their casting department likes the way I look and has invited me to come out and audition for one of their reality shows. Although these shows are tacky, they act as great exposure. I will be meeting with them on Thursday for a screen test—wish me luck!

Money is still tight, but I am learning how to manage. I am simply learning to make more with less. I am lucky to have the jobs I have, but it will take time to build a solid foundation of income. I have many initial expenses that inhibit my ability to save.

St. Patrick’s Day is always a great day. It is a festive holiday where everyone seems to be cheerful. This morning, I went to LA’s parade with a few friends. After that, I headed back to the apartment and went straight to the pool. I was so blessed to have taken such a long nap outside today. Although I feel a little groggy, I am feeling quite rejuvenated. Not only is it St. Patty’s day, it is my late grandmother’s birthday and my parents anniversary. Today is a day to celebrate all around, and I am doing so thoroughly. How did you celebrate?

Nick, your getting more successful every day! Keep up the good work!
U. Sam went out with his buds for St. Pats Breakfast at our local Cornersterstone Brewery. Being that I'm still under the weather, he did bring me a corned beef sandwich for lunch and I toasted him with a rootbeer! Pretty calm compared to our usual St.Pat's celebration. Can't wait to see your headshots! You are so handsome and charming -knock em dead!!

MTV!!! Congrats!!
Okay..reality tv..tricky.
Still, be you. I hope you do get a good part that does lead to more exposure!

Sounds like you are getting more rest. Don't take that for granted because it also sounds like the pace is going to pick up.

Conserve your energy the best way you can!

Forgot to wear green. I don't really know how to get into the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, what with me not having Irish heritage. Anyway, good luck with MTV Nick. Remember, there are no small parts, just small actors. MTV shows may be tacky, but I hope you do a great job anyway. Annette

Prince and I went "Dancing With Leprechauns" at the Alamo last night. Had a few, or nine, green beers and hot wings. I don't do cabbage.
Happy birthday to your Grandmother Nick. My Grandmother raised me so I know how special they are. She lived to the ripe old age of 94 and was one of the kindest people that I've ever met. Ever....
Take good care and.......

Steady On
