Hi guys, it's been a while!
Things have been a bit crazy and sad since my last journal, but I'll spare you the details since they're actually quite painful to think about still.
But amidst all the problems I've been having, I have to say, things are starting to get better, and I think I'm starting to move on the right path for me. Ever since coming to Japan in September, I've been feeling like I really want to audition and get into acting, because the acting bug that re-bit me back in May has been burning as strong as ever. Well, fast-forward to now, and in the past few weeks I've filmed an audition for a role in Star Wars, moved from Kyoto to Tokyo, away from the study abroad program that has been pulling me down into a funk, and was asked to audition for a role I submitted for on Backstage.com that requires an American woman who can speak Japanese.
Needless to say, something is finally going right after the emotional turmoil of the past few months. What kept me going was the thought that something good has to be just around the corner, otherwise there wouldn't be such a buildup of all of these negative, hurtful things. And boy, does it feel good to be right.
And for the first time in a long, long time, I find myself thanking God for putting me in the right place at the right time.
Things are looking up, and they can only get better from here.
