Every single person on this planet has at least one secret that could break your heart. If we could just remember that, there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world

the waiting game.....
So if you thought AUDITIONS were scary, remember that most auditions are not AMERICAN IDOL style. You don't get to run out with a golden ticked and hug your family, or come out crying and flip off the camera while screaming why you are good enough. no no. Instead you throw yourself out there and give the auditioners every thing you have, then you wait. If you are lucky you wait a week, but that pretty much ended in high school. For all the auditions I've done recently you wait at least a MONTH. Thats right you get to sit around for four long weeks and think about all the things you could have done differently and wonder what the auditioners are saying about you, whether or not you wore the right shoes, sang the right songs, had enough gell in your hair, updated your resume, had a good headshot, if you should have shaken their hands instead of just saying hello, brought your own accompanist, or performed your songs or your monologues first. And yes I am capable of thinking about those things all at once, usually while i'm trying to sleep. So i'm not trying to complain, i'm trying to warn anyone who has to be around me for the next little while that I might not been in a GREAT mood :) corss your fingers for me ;)
