I had an audition today. After stumbling over a monologue I had minutes previously had by heart, I left feeling like I didn't do very well. I was optimistic about pursuing other roles and keeping this acting alive in me again, so I wasn't upset, I just sat down and immersed myself in animating. All of a sudden the phone rings, and it is the director, saying she wants me for callbacks! They still have a whole other day of auditions, so I was expecting that call days from now, not just a few hours later, but she said they 'enjoyed' me, so maybe that means something excellent.
I am so glad I finally did this, I've been whining about missing doing it for years, without doing anything about it, and now I see how easy it can be. Even if I don't get this role, I will get one eventually, and soon enough I'll be acting my ass off. That will be sweet!
I'm very excited about the whole thing, and even though I was so nervous I could have died, it was way so much more than worth it. If I do get it, you are all invited along to see it :P.
