Woe is me: I'm submitting for work all day but I'm not getting enough responses.

Woe is me: I want more work than I can handle.

Woe is me: I miss being on a production set. 

Woe is me: I regret turning down to be in the music video called "Take Me Home Tonight." (You were right Scott)

Woe is me: If I would of did the music video I would of had to miss 2 days of Vampire Masquerade rehearsal knowing that I already missed the first day.

Woe is me: Now every time I see the movie commercial "Take Me Home Tonight" I cringe. 

Woe is me: Why won't most people email me back.

Woe is me: I hate being at home.

Woe is me: I barely received any responses on my last post

Woe is me: There are some many great things to eat in LA but I can't afford to eat them. 

Woe is me: I'm still kind of sick. I'm coughing right now. 

Woe is me: I have noting significant on my schedule next week. 

Woe is me: I want to attend an acting class or join an improv group but I can't afford it. 

Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me! Woe is me!

Day 143 = Wednesday, February 9, 2011

* Attended a Social Media Breakfast LA. It was pretty good. I even asked to be a apart of their organization but...

* On the way the way to another free workshop, I got lost and decided to turn around. On the way back I used my powers and yelled out my need to receive a phone call for some work from a producer or casting director. I was asking for immediate results. I wanted the phone to ring that moment. Ironically my phone did ring but it was just one of my acting friends/associates. It wasn't the call I was looking for but later that day we did brain storm an idea that could potentially grow into something big. Fortunately, I did get a few texts later that day indicating some potential work.

I Am Number 4 

* I attended the world premiere of "I Am Number 4" for free. Three is a lot of long waiting in line but its well worth it. Free popcorn and drinks was also available.

Day 146 = Saturday February 12, 2011

* Received a call about an audition tomorrow. 

* I spent the day at the movies at Universal City walk AMC Theatre. I saw Gnomeo & Juliet, Sanctum, & some of Tron.

This is not me. This is just a random attraction at Universal City Walk. Its call I FLY. Its a sky diving simulator. Looks good but I can't afford to even think about trying it. 

Final Thoughts

Woe is me is actually an exercise. I saw students get up and verbally shout out "Woe is me..." at a acting class I attended in Tampa for a short period of time. I never did it in the class. Writing this out is my first time doing anything like this. I guess its a good form of ventilating. Yet, what I'm really looking for results.

Woe is me! Woe is me! WOE IS ME!!!!

As the quest continues...
