I realized as I was signing off my computer yesterday that I never made an entry last night! Was too busy with some other stuff I was working on, and just never got around to it. Not much to report anyway!
I've eaten a lamb chop and artichoke for lunch every day this week, and I'm not tired of them yet. They are SOOOO yummy. And had a lamb chop and scrambled eggs with feta cheese and spinach for breakfast (at 6pm tonight). My version of steak and eggs - and it was GOOD.
Went to acting class last night, and we did our scene from "The Big Sleep" again - it has definitely improved since last week, but can go so much farther, too. Doubt I'll get to do it again, though, since my scene partner said he probably won't continue in this class next month. I may get to do it with someone else, if my coach really wants me to do it again. I do have to find a comedic monologue, too, and put that up soon. First the dramatic one, which is very intense. I wrote it (and my friend SF helped me with it) and I've got to perform it before I move onto the comedic one. It's about a mother who knows that her baby is dying - very tearful, and even though I wrote it, it moves ME every time, so it will be good to perform it in front of an audience to see how they react to it.
But I have no clue what comedic monologue I'll do. It think a trip to the library and/or Samuel French (actor's bookstore) is in order for the weekend to see if I can find something. Or I'll write something. Maybe. Writing drama is easy for me, writing comedy is harder. Yet ACTING comedy is easier for me, and drama is harder. Weird, eh?
This weekend will be busy (aren't they all?) - Tomorrow morning I'll be meeting with a 'life coach'. I decided that I need to get focused on my goals and get cracking on them, and that I need someone to prod me along that path. Right around the time I was thinking about that, I heard about this life coach, and decided to take him up on the 30 minute free session he offered. I got some good stuff out of that (I think I detailed part of the conversation here last week sometime), and he and I will meet face to face for the first time in the morning. I'm looking forward to it. He had me fill out a sheet of paper with three columns on it: What I want to HAVE, what I want to DO, and what I want to BE. I filled out the whole page, and could have done more, but restrained myself, not knowing if he meant for me to continue or to merely complete the page. I'll report back on the session when I next check in.
I have to get a bit of a nap in after my session tomorrow, because I have an audition for a reality show tomorrow afternoon. Don't know much about it, except that I won't have to eat anything weird or date anyone weird. Good on both counts. So we'll see how that goes!
Then I'm supposed to go to dinner with Mike to some club by the woman who does "ForkPlay" - here's the website: http://forkplay.com/ Seems a bit cheesy and over the top, but that can be fun, too! She's singing at a club called "Residuals" with her band the "Studmuffins". I have low expectations, and will report back on this, too!
Saturday, Tempur-Pedic delivers my bed! Wahoo! I've got to change my singing lesson to later in the day to accomodate the delivery time, but that's okay! Of course, I may have to rethink the singing lesson altogether since I may not want to get OUT of bed once it has arrived!!
Not much else planned for the weekend. Rest. Sleep plenty, in fact, on my NEW BED!
