As an actor, I sometimes get FRUSTRATED having to survive financially OFF SET. Its like, really? really? This is what I have to do to keep a roof over my head and hold true to my dreams. Really? I REALLY have to go through unbearable situations just BECAUSE I have a dream? Wow. I guess this is what it means to PAY YOUR DUES in this industry. WALKING to an event on Melrose Avenue tonight, I was able to check my attitude as I passed Alexander McQueen, Madison, and a plethora of other high fashion stores that some only have been blessed to see in the magazines. You know what, because I’m in a confidentiality agreement, I cannot speak on the specifics of my stress causes, but I can say this: THIS WILL NOT BREAK ME. I came here for a specific reason, and that was to act. I WILL ACT, I don’t care how long it takes or how many trials I have to get through to get what I want. Bottom line.
I’ve seen many people that I started out with in 2004 drop like flies because life was kicking LIFE out of them. I’ve been sad when they regretfully just “gave up”. Man, I’ve seen it and I REFUSE to let that happen. So, if you are intentionally trying to piss me off and stress me out, please know this: GAME RECOGNIZE GAME.
Thank you world for taking the time to read a glimpse into my life.
