Supporting Dreams


When I stop and think about the many people who support me in pursuit of my dreams, it warms my heart. I get support from not only my family members, but friends and strangers as well. I think everyone should have a dream and not be afraid to pursue it -ever.
My uncle, Rudy Blanco, just published his first book. Its titled Summer of Fifty One: Incredible Fifteen Hundred Mile Journey. My uncle has always been supportive of me, so here I am, in support of making his dreams come true.
The book is available on Amazon.com. Order you copy HERE.
Lets support each other in making our dreams come true! :)

How Time Flies!

Wow, I look up, and a month has passed! I'm so sorry I have no updated in a long time. I guess it just feels like not a lot has been happening, but when I stop to think about what to write, I realize lots has happened. Its just how the way you look at things!
Ok, since my last post, I renewed my contract with my agents at AEF. I renewed for three years! :) I also auditioned for a new show called The L Word at Sony, with the VP of Casting herself: Dawn Steinberg. That day was a hectic day because I ran out of gas (I know, I know) 30 minutes before my appointment! I tell you, never a dull moment!
I've been having an amazing time in my class with Howard Fine. I go twice a week, and work one day a week as part of a work/study program. It's pretty awesome! I've been teaching my class at Actorsite for the kids workshops on Wednesday nights and have also started my private coaching with some of the kids. I'm keeping busy in between my auditions which sometimes is slow.
Good news: Southland found a home on TNT so my episode should air in January.I've also had auditions for Cold Case and Community recently, as well as a few commercials. I'm still on hold for an industrial that should shoot in December.
I can't imagine if I still subbed for LAUSD! When would I have the time??!
I have a few more weeks before I head to Texas for the holidays and a new year begins.
Curious to see what 2010 has in store for me!
