So you may be thinking, “Who wants to read a site about a quitter?” Afterall, don’t they say quitters never win and winners never quit?
Well, I’ve got a saying for you:
Wait! Don’t leave! Let me explain…
You see I’ve always wanted to be an actress.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many hours I’ve spent in front of a mirror practicing making funny faces, or my “crying” face. I’ve lost track of the countless afternoons I’ve spent in the backyard acting out scene after scene to a sold-out theater.
But here’s the deal:
I’m not a good actor. Ask any of the people I’ve auditioned for. But here’s the thing…I think I’m okay with that.
After too many rejections I care to think about, I’ve come to the conclusion that while acting is fun, it’s really not a viable option for me. I mean, I guess I could waste more time, money, and hope on trying to make my pipe-dream come true, but I’ve finally realized that there are other things that I would love to do for a living that I would probably equally enjoy.
And so that is the reason for this blog. About 3 years ago I “went on strike”, so to speak, and set out to figure out what I really want to do for the rest of my life, and now I’m going to chronicle it.
Yeah, I quit. Acting. But I haven’t stopped trying to find myself and what I’m great at. So my plan is to let the world know about my attempts at discovering my own personal greatness. So I guess what I’m saying in my rambling way, is that it’s okay to “Strike LA” if it means your dream is somewhere else.
And if all that sounds a bit dramatic…well, maybe there’s still a small part of me that craves the attention of the theatric arts.
