Yesterday I auditioned for an on air position for a Sports Radio station. They told me they liked me , although they didn’t quite know what they liked about me.
I also took a tour of the Vocational School where the auditions were being held. I have been dreaming of going there since I was a child, when I would see commercials late at night when I had insomnia. I have always been interested in writing and media in all of it’s various forms.
I have a friend who is a producer and he encourages me quite a bit, infact if it wasn’t for my monkeybone I don’t believe I could have survived the past year. He told me that he broke into the business by being offered an internship and it was totally unrelated to what he had went to college for. He is very successful today, and has had the opportunity to travel the world, and meet people the average person wouldn’t meet.
I guess what I am at getting at is you have to jump in feet first and get them wet, submerge yourself if you want to learn anything. The key to anything is passion. I have been a writer all of my life, as well as an entertainer, it runs through my veins. I will never give up, no matter how many times I get knocked down. No one should give up, Monkeybone picked me up and dusted my butt off whether he knows it or not, and there are plenty more out there like him. Good people, who believe in eachother, willing to believe in you until you can believe in yourself.
I believe in you America. Together we can do anything.
