Quick update then off to bed!

It has been a very hectic but promising week! I had two auditions this week. I cannot go in to detail what they are but I am keeping my fingers crossed! I also found out what song I will be auditioning with for “Mary Poppins”. Supercalifragilistic…etc.  Though I am familiar with the song, I will have to get with Mr. Bill Newberry to work on it.

Tonight was a fun night, I got to go bowling with my church!

Keeping Busy!

I had my photoshoot with LeisureFoto over the weekend so I am really looking forward to seeing how they turned out!  Once we get some proofs I will post them on here.  Also, I have my audition for “Mary Poppins” coming up so I have been practicing my singing.  I am a pretty busy kid, but life is good! :)

What a busy week!

It has been a busy week in our house!  As for me, I attended an actors workshop earlier in the week hosted by Matt Clement, a well known commercial director with many credits under his belt. I was the only child in attendance but I must say, I held my own with the adults when doing a commercial monologue!  On a scale from 1 to 5, 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest, I scored ALL 5s!!!  He said the only thing that would hold me back in booking the fictional gig would have been my age.  I was too young (it was a fictional commercial for Guild Guitars).  But outside of my age, I would have theoretically booked it. :)

My mom’s car battery died this week too...

My thoughts on the latest ‘The Walking Dead’…

So, are you as shocked as I am over the last TWD?!?!  Oh my goodness!  I knew Lizzie was crazy, but THAT CRAZY???

*** TWD SPOILER ALERT ***

If you have not seen the latest TWD and do not what to know some key plot points, you do not want to read any further!!!

Lizzie killed her little sister Mika with a knife. She is smiling, saying that she only wanted to prove to everyone that the Walkers are just like everybody else and was waiting for Mika to regenerate as a Walker. Lizzie says she was just about to turn Judith, too!!!  I thought that Carol handled it with care.  Carol leads Lizzie into the woods to pick flowers for Mika “for when she comes back”. Lizzie begins to cry because she believes Carol is mad at her. “Just look at the flowers, Lizzie,” Carol says in a shaky voice...

“The Single Mom’s Club” was AWESOME!

Over the weekend we saw “The Single Mom’s Club” and it was AWESOME!  Such a very well written and acted movie!  The highlight of the movie for me was seeing one of my acting mentors, Helen Ingebritsen!  She had a great scene with dialogue (she plays a piano teacher).  SHE DID AWESOME!!!  We also saw my daddy twice in a scene (at the birthday party at the Mexican restaurant about 30 minutes in to the movie).  As for me, hehehe, well guess what?  Yes, I was in it.  Yes, I saw me.  And yes, IT WAS THE BACK OF MY HEAD!!! LOL!  Oh well, if they ever give Oscars for “Best Back of Head” I will be a prime contender! :)  But that does not matter to me.  I am just sooo happy for Ms. Helen!!!

I’m going to see ‘Annie’!

Ok, so my Gotcha Day present was two tickets to see the Atlanta Lyric Theatre’s production of, ‘Annie’  on April 19th!  I am so excited me and my Mommy are going!  I can’t wait to see Mr. Kevin Harry play Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks.  He is such a amazingly talented actor and singer and super nice!  He also played Inspector Javert in the Aurora Theater’s production of Les Mis last year (where I played ‘Young Eponine’).  Also, the Music Director for the show is none other than my amazingly talented vocal coach, Mr. Bill Newberry!  What an awesome Gotcha Day (though it was a day late :) ) !

It pays to have forgetful parents, LOL…

Ten years ago yesterday was my “Gotcha Day”.  “Gotcha Day” is an term used by some parents in the adoption community to describe the day of adopting a child.  I like to think it means, “I ‘gotcha’, and I am never letting go!”  It is almost like having two birthdays in the year!  That being said, both my mom and dad and myself, forgot that yesterday was my Gotcha Day! LOL!  So we are celebrating tonight at my favorite all time restaurant, Texas Roadhouse to feast on my favorite all time food, steak!  My mommy also said she will let me know what my Gotcha Day gift is.  I can’t wait!  Once I find out I will post on here!
