I got my first-ever acting agent not too long ago, which was a big deal in of itself. But then yesterday, I found out I had an audition, which I’ve got to admit was a bit stressful because not only was I preparing for my first professional acting audition which happened to be a kinda big role in a TV show, but I also had to finish and deliver my final project for the copyediting course I was taking before midnight, and true to character, I’d put it off to the very last minute. (Seriously, I handed it in at 12:00am and it was due at 12:00am.)
To top it all off, it was going to be my first time meeting a big casting director, and I had to make a good impression or she’d never call me for any auditions ever again! Well, maybe not that extreme unless I was truly terrible and rude to boot or something. But my point is, the pressure was on.
I got a lot (and I mean a lot) of help yesterday, and good thing, too. This morning when I woke up, I felt at peace with all of it. It was kind of an amazing feeling. I felt ready. And I went to the audition, and did very good. Not amazingly awesomely great, and I’m almost certainly not going to get the role, but it’s okay. I’m happy with myself. I’m happy with the day. I’m done my online course and I’m sitting in a coffee shop writing my novel after a decent audition for a big casting director.
It’s a good day.
