Final Thoughts

I'm sure I've mentioned this before and I may have mentioned it in the video above but I think its a sincere blessing that auditions have been slow for over a month until now. My agent was on vacation for 3 weeks and I wasn't even getting much background work. Its blessing because it allowed me to focus on season 2 The Late Night Experiment with conflicts. 7 days of shooting was completed on Sunday of this week, my agent returned around the same time, my manager pops up out of no where with an audition and I end up with two immediate auditions. What a blessing.

Week 152: Good Life Preview: Judgement be gone

Weekly Video Review

Sunday, August 11, 2013

* On the way to improv, I stopped by Chipotle to pick up some rice. That's all I wanted. A 87 cents bowl of rice. After asking for rice the server asked if I wanted some beans or something else. I told him, "my budget can only afford rice." Just before I attempted to pay for my rice, a lady with a child in front of me asked, "Can I pay for your rice?" I didn't know how to respond. She said, please let me pay for your rice. I said, "okay, thank you." Then she said, "You can't just get rice by itself, you want some beans? Get some beans with your rice." I thanked her over and over. Before we departed she said, "I know who it is to eat famine like." That's what you call a blessing. The same dollar I going to pay fort he rice with is a dollar I found on the floor the day before near a strip club on La Brea and Sunset.

Final notes of this week

* Signs of things getting worse before they get better.

* Food stamp issues...

* Not pleased with my improv performance all week.

* TV issues. My digital convertor box died. My landlord gave me one she had stored away. It works great but it has no remote control. Grrrrrrr. As far as late night is concerned, all I get is CBS compared to only getting NBC previously.

* A lot of organizing...

* Financial issues are real.
