I decided to take life into my own hands and contact the manger I've been putting off for quite some time. The first call, the lady was sick. The second call, the receptionist told me to call back in a week. Hopefully third time is the charm! I should probably send them a postcard with some updates and a cover letter.
My friend Daniel asked why I was postponing it and for some reason I think I need to have an amazing reel and resume and be super lean. I remember a friend of mine once told me, ' think of all the jobs you're missing out on.' And frankly, I'm the type of person the needs motivation or pressure so I created it instead of waiting.
Now I have til Monday to shed some eater weight :)

On the flip side, I finally moved out of the messy hellhole I had to call an apt.
Chris and I moved into a new place closer to the train. It's the perfect size and he and I get along very well. I want to try to convince him to paint the walls bc frankly, I'm sick of the beige.
Dan was amazing and helped me out all weekend. We're really trying to work things out and maintain a solid balance. We both get tired and moody to the point where we might need a nap or a drink.
Here are some pics from the shoot and the move.

Wrapped 'The Way of Glass'

I still have one more scene to shoot but the location is tbd so I need to wait for that one.
This is my first lead role in film. I was super nervous the week leading up that for whatever reason I wouldn't know the lines. I planned out a schedule dedicating one day per memorizing a scene. That left the days before the shoot to really get into the character. It worked. a lot. My character has a lot of religious/lifestyle conflict. She has a few breakdown scenes. The first take of each scene I got an applause. It was great to hear. :)

Evaristo's 'Impura' Music Video Shoot

So the Music Video shoot went very well. 
Evaristo and Roberto were lots of fun and very professional.


New Haircut

I've been feeling extremely boring with my overall look lately and decided its time to make a change. For years, I've sported long brown hair with layers.  A few years back I did the black hair thing and loved it but it just got too long. I felt like Cher so I chopped it off Uma Thurman-esque to grow out my own color. I love my brown color but again, I'm getting bored.
Bangs were always an option but its always been scary to me and I'm a slight commitment-phobe. I'm glad I took the plunge. Voila! I feel sassy and fun again. I wanted to go shopping for my coveted leopard cardigan asap. Its funny the psychology of a haircut. At least for women. It's probably along the lines of how women feel better if they have makeup on. No se.
So here's a before picture
(simulating the cut before I take the plunge). I must say, I'm pleased with the results.

Nicole did a great job!
