Last week while I was out sick I’m pretty sure there was a conference among my coworkers. Four people have asked me today if I’m losing weight. I find this especially ironic because I probably gained 90lbs this weekend while visiting my friends and family. But, hey, I’ll take it. Just strange. I guess my messy-sleepy look is flattering to my figure.
The climb is less than 2 weeks away and I’m scared, but resolute that I will be totally prepared for it. Once that’s over I’ve got a new motivation. Headshots. All actors need headshots, in a business that is so focused on your appearance they’re basically your business card. The acting world is looks first, talent second; sad but true. Mine are seriously old, they’re still in black and white which hasn’t been the industry standard for quite a few years. Since I’m getting a tax return I figured I’d buckle down and get something tax deductible for next year. They’re ungodly expensive, so I need to look good for them, which means even more challenge-success motivation. After headshots are done I think I’ll start training for a half-marathon. I definitely am the kind of person who constantly needs a carrot dangling in front of them to get my butt in gear and work harder than my comfort zone.
Speaking of my comfort zone, it must be a nice place because I totally forgot to email myself my pictures of my breakfast to add to the blog when I got to work (I’ll upload them later tonight.) So this is a picture light entry. I have rehearsal till late tonight, so my food is already set in stone.
