In early january (around the 2nd week) I am planning to go down to Los Angeles.Yup, I'm at it again. I've never been one to yield at a leap of faith so here I am again,moving right along.
Everyone knows that I've been doing modeling/performing/acting etc. on the side since I was a teen. But I've never really taken any of it seriously until really, this past year. It's always been something I've enjoyed ...I know I'm not the hottest thing on the planet, nor the most talented....but I love what I do, and who doesn't want to do something they love and enjoy? I've got to get my foot in the door somewhere, sometime, and the clock is only ticking down, so I just decided....what the hell. I'd rather say I tried and failed than that I never tried at all. I'd rather be happy and broke than sitting there wishing I was out there just living.
( and as for school, they have pretty much screwed me here at this school and won't get my financial aid done in time (again) and I don't have the money to waste getting a degree were not all of my credits will transfer to my 4 year.... if things don't work out, I will come back and finish up my last few credits for my degree.It's not that I'm leaving school behind, I'm just putting it on hold)
I already have some paid work on hold (waiting for date confirmations) and a fitting with a fairly well known brand in the works as well. While I'm down there I will be hitting up agencies, building my port even more, and working whatever paid gigs I can get and will probably have to get a part time job ATLEAST, just to get by.
So... here I am.... saving up my money to get my butt down there. I've got my ticket pretty well covered and a tiny budget to live off of, but I do need some help in some other areas..... so here they are.
1. Please DO NOT send me ANY material things for X-mas/ my b-day ( which I will be down in LA for). I will be leaving most everything with my mother for the time being, and only taking down necessities. You can send things but I hate the idea of something just sitting around. If you planned on getting me something, help financially I WILL NEED IT. I like to eat... and have a place to live.... and the first little bit,until I get settled in is going to be rough.
if you want to help, you can send money via paypal to :email@example.com
2. I NEED A PLACE TO STAY Got extra space, or know of a space I can rent, a corner, a closet, a couch....hell I don't care. I just need a place to park my butt and a bathroom to use, lol. I am not beyond couch surfing either, If I can stay even a week...it helps.I'm also willing to work out a working situation where I can cook/ clean, help out with your business in any way, whatever you fancy...get in touch with me.
3. I need work - know of casting calls, part time openings, good opportunities, etc? send them my way!
I want to say thanks as well to all the amazing people who have always supported me, my family and my friends, and all the amazing artists that I have worked with so far.... you are all amazing and I wouldn't be the crazy nomad I am today without you
