I had a really fun week, although I also hurt my arm. Tuesday, I went to my first stunt class, which was awesome, although a handstand during the first half hour meant I spent the following morning at the clinic, and now have to wear a bandage thing on my arm for the next week. Even so, I loved the class, and can’t wait to learn more. We did sword fighting, hand to hand fighting, trampoline jumps, falling from a ledge onto a mattress…super exciting!
Today, I was showered with love for my birthday, had coffee with some fellow actresses and went to acting class. I am with Carolyne this time, even though she isn’t in our class anymore, and we are doing a scene from Stranger than Fiction. We did it about 5-6 times, and I really enjoy working with her 🙂
I didn’t just turn 23 today though, as it also marks the one year anniversary of this “little blog” 🙂
I started it on my birthday last year in the hopes that I could share my journey, and also be motivated to work everyday towards my dreams, so I would have something to write about, and so I could make them just a little closer. To be honest, I thought my parents and close relatives would be the only ones reading it. I thought that someday, when I ‘made’ it, people would go back and read it as a how to guide. I have been blown away by all of the support from family, friends, and even total strangers. When I hear someone say they read my blog and it inspires them, it means the world to me.
And while the blog has been more successful than I could have imagined, my acting career isn’t so bad either. I am nowhere near where I plan to be, but I am so much farther than I was last year. I think it is really important to have dreams, but it is equally important to realize, and be proud of all of your accomplishments.
And here are some goals I would like to achieve.
There is still room to add more, and I will hopefully accomplish things I hadn’t even thought of putting up here. I am enjoying this journey, and I am so grateful for all of you who are travelling with me!
