Where to start?!?

OK, most people don't know this about me, but I've always had the dream of being in a movie or some other large production. I think I have the talent, but I rarely get the chance to show it and further, I don't even know where to get started. I'm especially frustrated right now because I found out a new Star Trek movie has just begun production and I'd really like the chance to even be a nameless extra in a movie like that. It seems an impossible task to find out when casting calls will be and even how on earth I'd get to them or even be considered for such a thing. I have so many hopes and dreams but don't even know how to get them started so they even have a slight chance of becoming reality. Instead, here I am trapped in Rexburg, Idaho...AHHHH!

well, im no expert BUT i dont think idaho is the place to be if ur tryin to hit it big. You should move to LA theres a gazillion casting calls there, and u would make connections (to go along w/ the cliche "its not what u kno but who u kno) its true tho! Plus, you would NEVER have to worry about being lonely cuz I would be on the first plane out to Cali every weekend! lol No seriously though, you might as well, your already a billion miles from home, whats another thousand to CA?

Coming together

Current mood: optimistic

Well, at last it seems the pieces are coming together for me to finish classes here by this coming April and student teach next fall. I got pretty much all of my classes sorted out from transfers and substitutions, plus I got into a class I needed to take this semester even though it was listed as full. I'm still waiting to hear about an English class I just found out I'm supposed to take and if I can have one of my AP credits used for that (I sure hope so!). It looks almost certain I WON'T be back in Rexburg next Fall (YESSSSS!!!).

I also need to get where I'm student teaching sorted out. I'm hoping I can student teach back in Ohio because BYU-Idaho does allow students to student teach virtually anywhere (although they prefer you stay in an area they already are familiar with like Idaho; northern Utah; Mesa, AZ; or Las Vegas). Since I'm planning on teaching in Ohio, it would make sense (to me) to student teach in Ohio so I'm familiar with their system and not Utah's or Idaho's.

School is so far off to a good start...I just hope I can keep it real and keep up. It looks like I'll be having a busy semester. I am glad my sister is back. Having her here is lots of fun, plus we are in the same ward at church, which is awesome.
