1. Go back to the states. (the one that makes the most sense and at least I can work)
2. Get married. (that is another story in itself)
3. Find a job that will sponsor me. (That one is my favorite. Because all my friends/family in the states say it like it's nothing)
4. Come up with a spare $250,000.00 and have myself declared a business...sad to say I'm about $235,000.00 short...maybe it's time to start a kick starter.
When you are an actor people either get your struggle or they don't ...there isn't an in between. And mostly there is just a lot of "why don't you just get a real job". Over the last 3 years alone I've invested over $20,000.00 in this profession in acting classes, putting up my own show ect. If I was to think how much money over the last 10...well I'd have a heart attack then kick myself for not going to med school as I could be a heart doctor by now and could repair myself.
As of now I want to stay AT LEAST until my student visa expires in Feb, and if all possible I'd love to work 20 hours per week...but at this rate I'd settle for 10 hours.
Nonetheless, this has been great for travel and getting my life together. I have my One woman show reel thanks to Ross Resnick, my comedy hosting reel that I did myself and this week I plan on working on a dramatic reel...this way I at least I have something to show the agents, bookers etc both here and NYC. It's a damn shame it has taken me so long to get something as simple as this together...but better late than never. Take a look:
