IntIt’s been a long time since I last posted a blog…since the first week of January to be exact and there are a number of reasons for this. Health. Friends. Family. Work and ultimately I had lost the desire to continue writing.
I don’t think my writing style is the most enticing or what I had to write was very interesting but that is all about to change, maybe, because I quit my job, I left my family home and moved to London to pursue a career in acting and modelling. Yup you read it right. If you’re a friend of mine you’ve probably already aware of what’s going on.
If not then stay tuned.
I could basically fill up this blog with a load of ‘take a chance’ quotes but I’ll save them for my twitter and Instagram, well there might still be a couple..
This move has been a plan of mine for some time now, a lot longer than I realised, apparently since I saw my first West End show back when I was about 9. I got to see Les Miserables as part of a group trip with my drama club, I was stunned to say the least. The lights, the costumes, the harmonies and the stage! It moved! And that was it for me I went home to my mom and dad told them that’s where I want to be and that’s what I want to do.
Which brings us to now. I’m doing it, well kinda. I’m here, in London. For me personally that was half the battle, this year while I was in hospital (after my operation) I had one of those iconic light bulb moments where I said to myself if I don’t do this now I never will.
Now I’m very much a realist, I know this isn’t going to be easy being a freelance artist, I know I’ll compare myself to others succeeding, I know I’ll have to get used to my own company, I’m gunna have to get used to going to the gym more than once a week, I will perfect my craft and go to castings/auditions A LOT of them, but all of this makes me even more curious.
Being in the unknown is pretty scary, but I’m trying to replace my fear with my desire and drive for what I’m pursuing, if nothing else at least I can say I’ve tried.
I’ve only been here about three weeks and so far so good. I’ve had a professional modelling job already, booked in a couple more and applied for dozens of castings so now we wait, I’ll report back when the next exciting event happens. Hopefully that won’t be another 8 months down the line xx
