I am now 12 days into the Self-Tape Challenge, and I am learning a lot of things. For one, I now know where I can do a self tape on my own in my house, and I am also getting comfortable with them. That isn’t to say I am amazing at them, but I am trying new things and getting confident, which was the goal of the challenge. I am also taking the opportunity to learn some monologues, but for now I keep practicing things I actually want to send in as self-tapes instead. Which is really a good and exciting thing. Whether I send it in or anything comes of it doesn’t matter, it is really fun to actually work on things that are currently casting.

Looking back on the rehearsal from last Tuesday is kind of bittersweet, because I am no longer participating in that project. I completely understand, because it was easy to realize that I was not really meant for the part, but it is still unfortunate that I spent so much time working on a role and learning my lines, getting into it when someone else will ultimately play it. Every day on set is a good day though, and I got to explore a character that is nothing like me. The moral of this story is not to submit for things that are off-brand, even if I am really aching to get back on set. Lesson learned, and it was an interesting experience.

Other than some work at McGill and a lovely afternoon spent with Carolyne, the only other thing of note this week is that I bought a car. Mine was dying, so it was a necessity, but it kind of puts this career into perspective. I need to get working 😉

Also, congrats to my cousin, Steve, who ran a half-marathon dressed as a penguin today 🙂
