So I have a B.A. in Theatre and now here I am, not being able to get my mind off journalism. What an inconvenient time to decide I want to do something completely different with my life. Don't get me wrong. I love acting and I want to make something of it. I do. But what if I can't make a career out of it? What's my back up? Writing! I really can't think of anything else. How do I make it happen though? I already got turned down by freaking Demand Studios. They say they don't have a job for me but I know they are hiring! I need advice. Any writers out there? How do I make this happen? Any suggestions? I would love to freelance, apply for internships, anything! It's just kind of hard without the background.
On another note, I have my first adjustment appointment for my braces tomorrow. Things are really moving along. My lower teeth are already straight. So hard to believe. Before I know it I'll be in surgery and wow will that be weird.
Looking at condos right now. Definitely planning on staying in town for a while.

The showcase class starts today! What a week. First I get sick, not fun, then I find out I have a matter of days to get my portfolio together to be ready for the showcase class. I got new headshots on Friday, me with my smiley brace face. In some of the pictures I look like I'm 12 haha. I'm excited though. This class will hopefully get me signed with an agency in town and I can start booking some jobs! I would love to build up my resume over the next year and a half since I have to be here for the jaw surgery, then I can make my move back to sunny California. Oh how I miss it. Or maybe I'll head to New York?! Who know's. I'm just excited to be doing SOMETHING! Still looking into a day job though.....

So my teeth are definitely moving now which is cool but my teeth feel loose. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm pretty sure I was able to wiggle a couple, not like a lot or anything, but that's how loose they seem! Maybe I'm just being paranoid but thought I would take to the blog and ask. Hope everyone is well!
