Actorfest Los Angeles, what an inspiring day!!

Hundreds of Actors, Downtown L.A., workshops, panels, and more. This past Saturday, 11/6/10 was awesome! I had never heard of Actorfest before, so when I came across information on it about a month ago I was really excited. After all, I have trained and I've met other actors briefly in auditions and classes but a whole day dedicated to both seemed so exciting to me I couldn't pass it up. I am so glad I went. Upon arrival there were throngs of actors in different lines and I wanted to take a picture to capture it all but my desire to get in the right line for processing and making it inside on time won out. I did however take a picture of the view from my first workshop, check it out!

A workshop on mastering the audition, along with panels filled with television and film casting directors had my brain on overload. I learned some great stuff but most of all I left so inspired! I got to meet some nice fellow actors too. A girl named Taylor who flew out from Kentucky for the day! Another girl named Michelle from Canada, a sweetheart named Angel, and a nice French girl with the coolest accent and the loveliest name, Veronique... 

The drive home had me looking up literally and figuratively. I don't hang out in Downtown L.A. too much so I couldn't help but snap a pic of my view! 

Once on the freeway, I caught a glimpse of the sky and I tell you it perfectly matched how I felt inside. Plus, I thought it looked so beautiful.

I mean what a day, I was so energized once I got home I couldn't help but dump my goodie bag out on my bed and go through all the great info and cool stuff I got. Later this week, I'm going to dig in a little further. 

I asked every Actor I came in contact with if they had been to Actorfest before and not a single person was a repeat visit (I hear it is held once a year.) As for me, I'd be open to going again next year. Of course, if I do, I'll have a different game plan to switch things up a little bit. Over all, it was a fantastic time. Thanks for reliving my Saturday with me. Cheers to networking, knowledge, and fun.

In with the new, on to the next

Hip Hop on the radio, I sit and type this blog to you with a full upheaval going on in my world. I have been going through all the items in my home as of late. Passing things on to interested people I love, donating, and throwing things away. I am shocked at how good this feels. Really, I'm finding it quite addicting.

#1. I'm finding things I had forgotten about.
#2. It brings me great joy to pass on items to someone else that could use them.
#3. It feels so much lighter to get rid of things you aren't using and truly cherishing.
#4. Seeing and living with everything so organized afterward is awesome!

If you have the chance to do this, give it a go. It feels so good! I personally like to donate to The Salvation Army but there are plenty of ways you can donate, there are even collection bins for clothes posted in various shopping centers! Believe me when I say you will be surprised to find out how rich you are right now... I'd love to hear if any of you took up this challenge! The good feeling you get is priceless and if that isn't enough for you, you can also get tax write offs. Double bonus!! If you already donate regularly, feel free to let me know how and where you donate to as well. Cheers to full and bountiful lives. You are awesome.

I'll be posting another blog soon... until then, love and light.
