I’ve been busy for the first half of this week. Saturday was the Color Run (and following that was the cleanup and recovery from it). Sunday was the blogger brunch and trying to run errands at my house.
Monday I had my dental procedure planned. I was going to take the day off of work, and I had planned to take my panic meds to make the procedure go a bit easier.
I said “had planned” because on Sunday I found out that I had an audition on Monday right after my dental procedure. So no panic meds for me.
I did ok at the dentist (no fainting so that’s a win in my book). And I got home with time to change for my audition.
Went to the audition (for a music video) and thought I did a pretty awesome job. I had to cry in the room, which I did. I even cried so hard that one of my contact lenses fell out (I found it).
Got home from the audition, and had a wonderful text message from my agents. I had an audition for a series regular in a pilot! That’s the best thing ever (I’ll write about pilot season another day).
Right after that text, I got another text that I was being put on hold for the music video. Which shot the same day as the audition. I had to make a decision. Go to the audition and say I’m not available for the booking or cancel the audition and take the risk on whether or not I’d be booked (being put on hold normally means it’s between you and another person).
I decided to go for the audition. I emailed an apology to the casting director of the music video and said I wasn’t available.
Cut to Tuesday. I was getting ready to go to my day job, thinking the next day would just be a day to go to the audition. I get a phone call from the casting director of the music video. I booked it! But she never got my emails saying I wasn’t available.
After a couple of back and forth phone calls, this is what it is now. Today I will go to my day job from 9-2. I’ll go from my job to my audition (I want to get there nice and early to have time to get ready). Right after my audition, I head to set for the music video, which will now be a night shoot for me.
All of this happened within 24 hours. I really thought this week would just be a boring normal week for me. Now I get to spend at least one day living my dream.
