Sunny With a Chance of STRESS!!!!

So it is all sunshine here weather wise but I must confess I am STRESSED out right now. Money. We don't really like talk about it as people do we? It's kind of personal and really touchy. Well let me confess I am broke right now. Like uber broke. Eating beans & lentils cuz they're cheap-broke. Now I know we've all been there-I know I will get through it but it is just so damn tough right now & work is crazy stressful. My co-worker is leaving & there is a lot that needs to be done in our office (thus 2 people doing it) and I just feel like I cannot get it done by myself. So I am stressing about all the money & work stuff and still trying to audition & have a life and it is all just a lot on my plate as of right now.

But Alex it's supposed to be Fabulous Things Friday! Well here is what is making me feel a bit more light-hearted about all this stress:

Sunny With a Chance of Zombie Shakespeare!

I just watched that Simpsons with Zombie Shakespeare-too funny!

So for this Theatre Thursday I just had an audition to be a plus size model in a runway show!! It's pretty exciting-all proceeds go to building houses in Haiti which is amazing, it also is sponsored by apple-bottom jeans, forever 21, and a few other smaller designers. The down side is I don't get paid. Thus I'm torn.

I love doing anything for good causes but as a performer I am a professional and believe in our unions and get paid for the hard work we do. Plus things are really tight in the ol' bank account and mama needs some money!

I'm talking with some dear friends who are in the 'biz to get their opinions as well as my physical therapist as this would affect my back (high heels are NOT my back's friend). I'll keep you posted. The audition was fun & staying for the rehearsal after was fun & really informative. We'll see what I decide.

Still haven't heard about the VW 1920's commercial-this usually means you can assume you didn't get it. It's a bummer but I did have fun getting all gussied up so I', keeping positive on it all. I'll just keep on submitting until it happens. No fear friends! You'll be seeing me soon on your small screen (or maybe the nearest big screen)! ;)

Til then I'm going to keep up with writing my script & with submissions & audition! :D

Take care chickens!
