Courting Grata

Funny how the universe works.

I finally find a job bartending at this small neighborhood restaurant.
After a few days, I start freaking out because I'm making no money there.
They offer me extra cash to do their website, I'm hesitant.

Then yesterday happened.
A bunch of regulars come in. A few I had already known. I start to chat up the new people and they ask about me and my life and goals, etc... I mention that yesterday I had a text conversation with my ex and he's pushing me to stay in the acting field. I also mention my current situation, whether or not I move to Texas and that I decided to start uploading my new website (shameless plug- :) lol )
One of the lady's boyfriends comes in.
She mentions 'So Frances is an actress' He goes, 'oh thats great!, does she know what you do?'"
It turns out she was a casting director. I was stunned for a sec then say something like 'oh well alright then!' . I shook off a few nerves and was able to continue talking to them. She said she didn't mention it because she didn't want me to feel like I had to act or be nervous.
Then, a little while later, a jazz cabaret singer comes in with her husband/boyfriend. We talk all about the industry and how I've been studying it, etc.. She said she hosts some nights where people sit in with her.
I left the building just completely turned in that, maybe this is where I'm supposed to be right now. I'm getting design work and I'm meeting people in my desired industries that may or may not, but lets be positive and say MAY help me in the future.

And they feed me. lol

Its like being on a date.
You don't know where its going but you're both there then the magic starts to happen.
