This the beginning of an adventure. I am going to be mentored by casting director and all-around coolest person ever – Toni Suttie. Beyond wanting to learn everything I can, I want to bless these people I am about to spend 3 days with. This has been in the works for 3 months, and the time has finally come. I am excited about long days on a set somewhere. Sick, huh? I hope I can sleep tonight, I am SO excited!
I have to be honest. Even though I’ve read books and spoken to people who’ve done some acting stuff or are involved in the industry in some capacity, I still feel completely unprepared for what lies ahead. I just won’t know what it’s like until I am there. Some knowledge just comes from experience, and I lack it in a major way.
You don’t KNOW what you DON’T KNOW! I am such an amateur. Barf.
Fear can keep us away from uncharted territory. I refuse to fear the unknown. I have held myself back for a long time. I am sick to death of TALKING about things I want to do someday. I want to just DO them. Today is my someday. Today is YOUR someday, too, if you want it to be.
The 3 months leading up to this have already stretched me in ways I cannot even begin to tell you. I will say this – I am blessed beyond measure.
Let’s do this.
