A Happy Day

21 Nov

Ever have one of those days that you look forward to, and fully enjoy and when it is over you wish you had someone to thank for allowing you to have such an awesome day?

That was my Thursday and I’m still smiling when I think about yesterday. πŸ™‚

It’s not one big amazing thing that happened, and to be honest, when I tell you what my day was like you’ll probably roll your eyes and think I’m being silly, but for me, it was such a great day that I wish I could relive it over and over again lol

So what was my day like yesterday? Here’s how it went down…

First, I got to sleep in a bit, not so much my day disappeared but late enough I didn’t feel I was dragging myself out of bed early and not getting enough sleep. Hey, sleeping in is a good thing in my book! πŸ˜›

sleep

Then I went to an audition for a tv show, I found free street parking, score! The auditions were running a bit late so I had extra time to kill in the waiting area, I like not being rushed before an audition, shrug. The audition itself went really well. It’s always hard to say how an audition went but I had a good feeling when it was done which put a happy little bounce in my step – literally, a happy bounce was in my step lol yes, apparently I am that person! πŸ˜›

After the audition I had an appointment with a debt counselor person, I’m trying to get a better handle on my debt (duh!) and thought some advice might help, it for sure couldn’t hurt! I found more free street parking, had enough time to get a bite to eat (thankfully! cause I was sooooo hungry at that point, oh poor empty tummy!). The only place nearby that I could get a quick bite was Starbucks so I grabbed a half-sweet peppermint hot chocolate made with skim milk, no whipped cream, no chocolate sprinkles (I know it sounds really boring but I like it and using skim milk and saying no to the toppings saves me calories), I also got the oatmeal, which was perfect on the rainy kinda chilly day that Thursday was. I made my appointment on time, had a super nice lady helping me, learned a lot about what I am doing right (which was shocking cause I thought I was doing nothing right lol), I also got told some options I have to help me get out of debt faster and left with some hope, some print outs and some names of people I can speak to for further advice if I so choose to contact them.

I had some quick downtime at this point so I went home, made some tea and toast, cuddled with the cat, packed a bag and went to set because I was filming my final scene in a short film that is going to be entered in to a couple of film festivals!

I had a great time on set! Filming went really well, nice n smooth, didn’t have to do a ridiculous amount of takes to get it right, it was like it was meant to be lol πŸ™‚

filming

After filming was done I headed over to my friend’s place, it was her birthday this week and Thursday evening was our evening to get together and celebrate, yay!

We both are hooked on the Hunger Games movies so I bought (in advance cause wow tickets were selling out fast!) tickets for us to the VIP theatre to see the third installment of the movie, Mockingjay Part 1. Have you ever been in one of those VIP theatres? Niiiice! Food on par with a restaurant, being served in a snazzy bar/restaurant or right at your seat. Every seat has a table, the chairs are large, and recline a bit, and are leather, and omg there is leg room! As in actual leg room, enough for tall people! No sitting with my legs at an angle so my knees don’t hit the chair in front of me, nope, lots of leg room, I stretched out my legs, stretched! Oh, and even better is the theatre is 19+ so no kids, and if I so choose it, alcohol. All in all, best movie theatre ever and totally worth the extra money to go there. πŸ™‚

look at that leg room!

To round it all off, on the drive back to my friend’s place to drop her off, she played for me a song she wrote and recorded a couple of years ago and wow. Wow! Her voice is amazing, and the song was beautiful and I felt lucky that she chose to let me hear her song.

So yeah, that was my day. Since you’re probably wondering why I think it was so amazing lemme break it down for you, I had a ratio of acting and non acting activities that was equal. I had an audition and I was filming yesterday! Any day where I get to do something acting related is a good day, but having both filming and an audition happening and then other things tucked around that were positive well, tickle me pink cause that makes for a happy day in my corner of the world, lol. πŸ™‚
