* DOS Rehearsal/Show. This is my, "I'm getting worse at improv period."

* Used my LA Fitness pass and played ball in their gym (Hollywood near Highland location). First time on their courts and I wasn't too bad. My problem is I don't know how to cut to the basket very well. I cleaned up very well. Rebounds and a couple put backs. I fell twice. Everybody was falling. One fall gave me a big bubble bruise on my left forearm. It didn't look or feel good, surprisingly it healed fast. In 24hrs it was almost gone. Before the bruise I got hit in the face slightly. I really have to get a face mask or something.

Week 184: New Audio Revelation and Mega Q1 Wrap Fest Success

Introducing The Weekly Audio Review

Sunday, March 23, 2014

* Blogging...

* Volunteering at Mosaic Church LA. It was a good day. 

Monday, March 24, 2014

* QWF work...

* Basketball and slap in the face. I was 2-0 in the game of 21 and never finished a full court game because I got slapped in the eye. The week before one of my teams hit me in the nose. In one of the 21 games I got hit in the mouth. I then joked around and said "this must be a sign." When I got slapped in the eye I slightly panicked. All I could think about was some type of mark that was left that would prevent me from booking. I didn't even finish the game. I just walked off. Thankfully there is no scar but for at least two days my right eye was hurting. The vision in that eye is still a tad bit blurred compared to the other eye. Nothing crucial.  I'm just thankful I don't have any serious blood shot. I haven't played ball since but I won't let that completely discourage me. I'll be back. I just need to find some other forms of exercise to balance out.

* Mosaic Comedy Improv level 3 with Michael. 

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

* Straight to callback audition for Farmville 2. I did too much acting in the audition. I halfway got up on a chair and...too much. 

* Mosaic Comedy Improv level 301 with Nathan. 

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

* I'll label this as a "Nothing Day." With all that I had to get done I had no desire to do anything. When I wasn't sleeping, my tablet was my best friend. Watching Teen Wolf, Turtles, Scandal, porn...

Thursday, March 27, 2014

* Another day struggling with my energy. 

* Then I got a little motivation from the app Tinder for some reason women was accepting my match. It was fun but nothing significant as come out of it yet. 

* I even updated my profile on OkCupid and started to get some matches.  

* Dollar store walk and phone talk.

* On the contrary, either late night/(am) or yesterday late night (am) I tried to meditate for a moment and Sound Cloud came to mind. That inspired the new audio edition. 

Friday, March 28, 2014

* QWF Stuff

I deserved a treat for myself. 
Can't go wrong with Ihop Bacon Temptation Omelette 

Final Thoughts 

Its Yourlisten.com. That's what I forgot while recording and I'm mentioning it now. 

A little over 24hrs after publishing this post, I remembered what I forgot to mention. Vitamin Water. Last week Friday I had a Vitamin Water audition in which I felt confident about. At the very least, I figured I would get a call back. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. It puzzled me for a while but you move on. It was possibly for the best. One of their possibly shoot dates was on the day of the Wrap Fest. If I got booked and that was the conflict, it was of been devastating. The festival isn't ready to survive without me at this point.

I already mentioned this on the audio review but it was a great blessing to have people approach me after the festival and offer to help assist me in my endeavors/web series.
