Life on The Road: The View is Nice

Occasionally, I complain about the irritations of life on the road;
Let’s be honest, traveling for work is as enjoyable as going to the dentist for a root-canal.
So when I wake up in a new city, and roll over in my somewhat lumpy and uncomfortable hotel-bed and watch the sunrise over a glistening lake and soaring mountains, I have to admit that I have a pretty awesome life.
My “office” is never in the same place for more than a week.
I get paid to see the world, and however exhausting travel can be-I still appreciate the perks!



Focus

Creativity;
Constant pursuit of passion!
That is my success.

Random Note:

Household budget crisis over;
Bring on the HBO!
I’ve got a season of True Blood to catch up with.

Regret

That burning pain that seeps up from the stomach and into your chest-
No, you did not NEED that French Dip Sandwich at 10 PM last night!

Waiting is pointless.

Audition

The excitement of a potential job,
Reading through the script, making choices and preparing a character,
Running lines over and over, until you have it in your body,
Picking out the right clothes to convey the part,
Signing in and waiting in the lobby with twenty other guys that look JUST like you,
The awkward small talk in the casting office–then you slate your name and the scene begins and before you know it, your done…
Walk out feeling confident, you gave it your all and rocked it out!
Then, you wait.  You try to forget about it.  Every time it pops into your head you think, “Wouldn’t that be awesome?”  
But you let it go, and wait for the next audition.


Red-Eye

Relentless tossing;
Wide awake and craving sleep!
Sunny day, no rest.
