It’s currently 12:45 am on the East Coast. I’d love to be in bed. This is my current view. At first glance, you might think “why would she bother to post that?” It’s just a random, blurry building. Well, I had this thought on the way home from my job: this is what I do to make my dreams a reality. I should document this. These moments are part of what makes me who I am. When I first started this blog, I told you it would be about my adventures in this crazy city. Well, sometimes adventure isn’t always a fun thing. Dreams take work. They take sweat, and, as Debbie Allen put it in Fame “and right here’s where you start paying.” This is my view after working a very hot, sweaty, tough night shift that ended quite late. I’ll be back tomorrow. And the next day. And countless days/nights after that. It’s what we do as artists to survive (and not only artists do this, I’m sure). It’s hard. We work til all hours to pay for those lessons, make those auditions, get those head shots, put food on the table…and you know what? It’s all worth it. It builds tough, strong people. It builds a lot of character. So cheers to random sights at odd hours of the day. They’re good reminders that you’re following your dreams, you’re making the sacrifices, and you’re living with passion. For that you should feel good. Sleep well. You deserve it, dream followers.
