Ok, so I know I was all gung-ho about going to this audition on Saturday (tomorrow morning), but I have decided that I needed to step back a little bit and assess the situation:
Night before last, I found my accompaniment music and took it home to practice it and realized I was waaaaay out of vocal shape, plus I had no idea what monologue I was going to do only 2 nights before the audition. Well, I have decided that just because something is on my life list does not mean that I want to half-ass my way through my action just to cross something off. NO! I want to be able to earn what I cross off, and look back at the event with some pride – even if it meant that I never got the part!!! Quality is the only thing that I can settle on; 2nd-best is not enough, and only I am the judge of what that means for me!!
So, as I get my crap together!!! Pick a song that I can belt out like nobody’s business, and pick a monologue that inspires and intrigues me, I am going to keep-on-keepin’-on, as a very good friend of mine used to always say!!!
Ok, now that that has been said! Whew, I feel so much better!!! 😉
I just got home from a fun night of dinner and a movie at my best friend’s house!!! She broke both of her arms last week, so I wanted to be able to help her do some of her chores, while hanging out and having fun!!! So Jason and I rushed home from work and put together some homemade lasagna that I could just throw into her oven when I got there (thank you for your help, baby!!!)!! Anyway, we had a lot of fun with her daughter, and sister; they really are such a hoot to watch – and to have that ENERGY??? JEALOUS!!!! Yes, they have become my second family – aren’t friends just such a BLESSING?!?!?!?! I love you D!!! 😉
My sweetie stayed home, I didn’t realize he wasn’t feeling too well; he had some major dental work done this week and I guess his mouth has been bothering him more than he has been letting on. So, it sounds like he pretty much slept the whole time while I was at my girlfriend’s. Poor baby, I am going to have to keep this posting short so that I can get upstairs and take care of him, and see if I can’t help make him feel a little bit better!!!
I am off to bed for the night!!! Oh, and I tracked all of my Weight Watcher points for the day – that makes 3 days in a row – and if you knew my habits before, you would know that THAT is a HUGE thing for me!!! So now, I am heading into the weekend, which in the past has been my danger-zone but,
I AM GOING TO DO IT!!!!
I AM WORTH IT!!!
Oh, and ONE MORE THING!!! I just found this quote that I absolutely love, I have seen it before, but I think it is awesome enough that I want to document it here!!!
“A woman’s heart should be so lost in God, that a man should have to seek Him to find her!”
Amen to that sistahs!!!
