Act Out Mystery Theatre - "Character Assassin "

On Saturday the 12th of October 2013, I had my first show as the understudy for the show “Character Assassin”. I played the parts of Eva and Anita, the twin sisters in the case. It was a lot of fun and I regained a lot of my lost confidence in myself as an actress. Since I was cast to be in a local production of “Noises Off” and then told that I was being dropped from the show because my “acting abilities weren’t up to the standards” that play house was used to getting. That really upset me, and made me wonder whether or not I should really work on becoming an actress or not. I had been giving that show my all, and it wasn’t enough. After the show of “Character Assassin” on Saturday and all the actors went out to meet and greet the audience, we were all showered with praise, including me. I was overjoyed, to say the least. This show I regained my confidence and conviction. Acting is fun for me, and if I can find a way to make a living doing something that I love, then I’m going to do it. 

There are several more shows left to go, if you are near Long Beach and want to see the show for a discounted price follow this link:

It seems it's the season to get job interviews. At least for me. Ever since I turned eighteen I've been looking none stop of a job, about twice a year I would get an interview. Well, for some reason the past few weeks I've gotten new interviews, one after another. So far this hasn't turned into a job, but I'm trying not to be negative. I'll admit, it's hard. After two very disappointing years of adulthood it seems real odd and kind of fake that I should be getting these calls all of a sudden. I'm trying not to get excited and at the same time, I'm hiding my cynicism while I'm actually in the interview. I suppose it's a good sign that I'm finally getting calls, but at the same time, my experience level hasn't changed all that much. I'm just writing all of this out to get all of these thoughts out of my head. I should be really grateful, right? After all my need for a job has only increased since I got my first car and I'm paying for the gas, insurance and pretty soon repairs all by myself. But I just can't stop myself from feeling as if the cosmos it just teasing me, that these aren't jobs that I don't have a shot in hell in getting because the unemployment rate is so dang high and my experience falls far from being impressive. But there again, I guess I'm being negative. I dunno, maybe I'll change my tune once I actually have a job.
