Paid To Act!

15 Sep

Today was a momentus occaision for me, Momentous! For the first time ever I got paid to act! Paid! To ACT!! wOOt! πŸ˜€ *happy dance*butt wiggle*

I am an actress, that is my official career title, but all the acting jobs I have had till now have been student projects or volunteer opportunities. Now, there is nothing wrong with those, everyone has to start somewhere and those opportunities all gave me valuable lessons but they don’t pay the bills. lol. Technically, neither does this one as I only earned $70, lol, but again, gotta start somewhere! πŸ˜€

I would love to be able to tell you watch a specific tv show on a specific date or watch a certain movie and there I will be but this video you most likely will never see…no, it wasn’t porn! Get your minds out of the gutters! lol. πŸ˜› It was a Corporate Video, so, only people involved with that company will see it although apparently it might be put on youtube…I’m not sure if that is right though cause it doesn’t make sense to put it on there…

So $70 for 3 hours of work, well done I feel but better yet I have a video credit that I can put on my resume that is a “real” acting job. Student and unpaid projects don’t garner as much respect with agents, they kinda think meh when they see those, paid jobs however, totally different reaction – much better reaction! πŸ˜€

A part that feeds my ego even more is that I got this job all on my own, I don’t have an agent, none have signed me yet, so neener neener neener to all you agents who looked at me and said no cause ha! I am marketable and I can get work without you and a different agent will see that and realize I am a good bet and they will get all the commission from my bookings in the future. πŸ˜›

Ok, that was my little gloat, I’m back to being nice again. πŸ™‚

On the note of my weight loss, I have been undereating for a couple weeks now cause of issues with the medication I am on. I’m not trying to not eat all my points it’s just that everything I eat and drink makes my stomach hurt so it kinda puts me off eating. shrug. I am trying though. I’m usually eating higher pointed but smaller amounts of food in the hopes that will make it all work out.Β  πŸ™‚

I have been managing to get my work outs in though, no worries about that! I’mΒ still doing the dragon boating and the boxing. πŸ™‚ The dragon boating season ends at the end of October and I’m not sure what I am going to do then…there is an Outrigger Team I could join, they train through to mid to end of January and there is a race involved, it’s $89 for 16 training sessions which is a really good deal but…I’m kind ofΒ a weather wimp and don’t know that I could deal with being out on the water during the winter…it’s nasty enough dragon boating in the evening if it happens to be raining but Outrigger Boating in actual winter time? in the evenings? …I dunno…seems…unpleasant…

I think it’d be a better idea to try to find something to do that is an indoor pursuit…I could try to find another Zumba class, that was fun…I think I’ll check out the Community League’s fall schedule and see what they have. Community Leagues are so great, you can try all sorts of new activities for cheaper then if you went through a gym or studio. πŸ™‚

This past week has pretty much rocked! I had 2 auditions, got paid to act, got the passport application in, got paid to act, got a smile and a wink from a hottie McHottie fireman *drool*, got paid to act, met up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while for lunch…did I mention I got paid to act? πŸ˜‰

Oh and on Sunday I have a photo shoot lined up, so I already have something to look forward to for next week, yah! πŸ˜€

    Yay! Congrats! If it ever makes it’s way to YouTube let us know! I know I would watch! That’s a really big deal! I am so happy for you and so proud of you! I think the outrigger team sounds awesome but if you think the weather may derail you then I say find something to do indoors πŸ™‚

      if it ever makes it to youtube I’ll be telling the whole world lol so for sure all of you will be included! πŸ˜€

      I was texting with a friend from dragon boating who signed up for the outrigger team, he said they are already planning to fundraise so they can go to a racing festival in Hawaii…that alone might be enough to get me out on the water during the winter lol. I’m so torn, I don’t handle cold weather well at all, I have a really low tolerance for it so part of me keeps thinking “don’t sign up, you’ll be miserable!” but another part of me thinks “it’ll be fun, and you’ll be moving while on the water so that’ll keep you warm” and then a third part thinks “all that shoulder and upper arm definition you’ve been working on will be lost if you don’t keep up with the rowing” ack! I have to find something that is indoors that will work my arms and shoulders just as much as the rowing has been…but will also work my core and give me cardio at the same time…*rolls eyes* I don’t ask for much do I? πŸ˜‰
