I left my job at the gym, I have enlisted the help of a personal trainer and have plans to move to London at the end of February!
Yup, a lot has changed! This year, I plan on living life to the fullest, only exuding positive energy and hopefully attracting the same! I already have an audition lined up for a theatre show here in Ireland and after that, I just need to finish my training with my trainer and then head out to London to really immerse myself in the industry over there!
So yes, this poses a good bit of obstacles, but nothing I cannot overcome! Firstly, personal training does cost money, and since I just left my job, I have to rely on savings to cover it. But I figure, in this industry, a good, fit and toned body is essential, because I don't want my body to be just another reason casting directors will say 'next!'... mmm.. So I think of it, as an investment for my career, just as a good headshot is!
Now, moving to London poses more obstacles, but I have family to stay with for a little while, and from there I will try and get myself accustomed to the theatre and film industry in the UK. Becoming a member of British Equity and Spotlight is a must! And then of course I will be heading in and out to as many workshops as possible and to as many theatre shows as possible, and just network!! Woo!
Just positive energy for this year folks! That's all I'm focussing on! Getting my body and mind in check so that I can be 'available for life to happen to me' (Bill Murray)
So that's really it folks! I'm doing it! Throwing caution to the wind and just going for it! Anyone else having the same feelings for this year? Or even any advice for London?
Thanks for reading!
