Future E-mail

This week I missed capstone because I was in New York competing in the Irene Ryan's at the American College Theatre Festival. It went well, but alas, I did not win anything. Such is life. I saw a lot of shows that really inspired me, one in particular was Waiting for Godot, which I was dragged to by my friend, but I was so happy they made me go! The acting was stellar and the entire direction and concept was so fresh and inspriring that I saw it twice. I also went to a workshop about voiceover work and met a lady named Davida Bloom. She showed us what we need to put on a resume tape for Animation or just to voiceover commercials or anything like that. She also recommended we check out voicebank.com for some more help.

From what I'm gathering from the capstone e-mail I just read, I need to send myself a future e-mail, meaning that I send myself an e-mail now and it will be delivered sometime in the future. Here's what I wrote to myself:

Dear FutureMe,
I hope this letter catches you well, as I hope that you haven't died or contracted any serious illnesses in the past months. I'm just checking in to make sure you've done the following:

Graduated College
Gotten a job
Secured residency for the time being
Kept dreaming.

Don't settle for anything. Don't let the comfort that you may have found temporarily hindered you from wanting to move on to bigger and better things. And remember, to always stay true to yourself.
Also, remember to keep track of your cash, and if you recenlty overdrew, I'm very disappointed.

Hope you're well!
Love,
The past you.

That's all the time I have for now...until next time.

No mention of kids or mate. Interesting how the women are career minded in this group and some of the guys are swinging to the domestic things in life (not that there's anything wrong with that)...it's just interesting to note.

I think that it's easier for the men to talk about families because they don't have to take maternity leave or anything like that. Right now I don't see a lot of the girls clocks ticking in this capstone class, but who knows, that could change quickly.
