Sorry I've Been Gone...

I didn't realize it's been a WEEK since my last post. Time sure does fly! Thank you to those who have contacted me expressing concern about my absence. I'll try and be better about updating. Sometimes when nothing is going on, I have nothing to write.
Let's see...what's been happening this past week? Well, I saw Spring Awakening at The Ahmanson last Tuesday. That was a really good show! :) I was REALLY tired and I struggled to keep my eyes open, but I did catch most of the play! I'm sure it would've been even better had I ordered some coffee beforehand!
I've been attending a lot of free screenings lately. In just this week, I've seen The Wrestler with Mickey Rourke, Milk with Sean Penn, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button with Brad Pitt, and Rachel Getting Married with Anne Hathaway. All good movies. Saved me some money at the movie theater this season!
Yesterday I attended a special workshop that was sponsored by PLIE (Professional Latinos In Entertainment) and Disney with casting director Risa Bramon Garcia. They hand picked 24 actors who they felt were "up-and-coming" and sponsored this workshop with Risa. It was pretty educational and it was especially nice to finally meet some fellow actors whose work I had seen and admired in the past. A few I have met before, but most were new friends.
Not much else is happening. I think my agent and manager have turned down more auditions on my behalf lately than I've actually auditioned for! Mainly because they were all small co-star roles and they are trying to actively push the guest star credits. It sucks because I get bored with no auditions or work coming in and I get ancy. I want to DO something! Doesn't look like I will do much of anything the rest of 2008. I'll be "on vacation" for the majority of the remainder of this year. I'm also eager to do a play. I'm even submitting myself for one in NYC!
So hopefully 2009 holds more for me. I'm thinking of getting into an on-going class. The one thing the workshop yesterday helped me realize is I have been out of class too long. I have been getting comfortable in some of my bad habits and I should get back to exercising my acting muscles regularly. I may audit Larry Moss's master class at the start of the new year. We'll see.
