[QUOTE=ssn679doc;1161321]Sometimes those big fish in those big ponds have very sharp teeth and can cut through the thickest of skins. The good thing about those leasons is the skin gets a little thicker and you are a little better prepared for your next trip in to the big pond. Some day, you will be the big fish in the big pond.... just keep swiming![/QUOTE]
What a very sweet way to put it, there is nothing I can add to this, but my support.
“I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
― Michael Jordan
P - take care of yourself today.
I think, on a positive note, that it's pretty darned awesome that you got invited for a call back. If most of the ladies were pretty much professional, the fact that you got invited back is a sign about just how much raw talent you have!

ditto. Think on this too.. every shot you take is another way to grow. You as a teacher KNOW you learn from any and all experiences. Let those lessons make you stronger and more determined instead of feeling defeated. Find the lesson P. Love ya chickie!
I have chosen to eat well today. Thanks for all the love. The kicker. I lost 1.5 lbs over night and am at a new low weight (218). Score one for the carb refeed crowd. I'll have to think more on that later.
I am listening to the soundtrack of "Hairspray" I will watch the movie too. I have an up beat audition song ready. My 15yr old son stayed home with me today. His Dad insisted that I needed company. This is the boy who was in Willy Wonka with me. He is planning on auditioning for "Hairspray" with me on Friday, just for practice and moral support. Bill and Billy are in NYC at the Daily Show. Poor Kevin had to go to school for state testing.
I am beginning to feel better and see the positives. Yes, it is impressive that I got a call back against that competition. The J & H theater was very far and I didn't know the people I would be working with. If I don't get a role in Hairspray then I can have a straight up acting gig with Coach House in the next production. The director told me to come to auditions if the "people at Rhinebeck are idiots". lol
That's so sweet that your son stayed home (and that hubby insisted). I think it will be great for both of you to do the audition together!
Well that was thoughtful!
Hope you two get to do something fun together today.
points to hubby for being so sensitive to your needs! :)
Wt 215.8 down 2 more. Only six from my Primal low.
Honestly, however, I can't claim that weight yet because I basically did a fat fast, down day. My intake yesterday was 4 cups of coffee with a total of 8 tbsp of heavy cream. Under 500 cals.
I just didn't feel like eating. I certainly had enough sugar in my system from the day before.
Today I will eat my regular lchf plan.
My head is back on straight. I have a more realistic view of what happened. It really says nothing about my talent, just about my training and experience. I did make the classic Facebook mistake of posting something that was not yet a reality. I posted that the first audition went well and that I was called back. While essentially true, my failure in the end caused me to have to admit that I got creamed at call backs.
I am preparing for the "Hairspray" auditions, but trying not to have any expectations. I am concerned that the popularity of the show may bring people out of the woodwork. On the plus side, I am known by them as a great comedic actress, so my chances are good.
Tomorrow I will tell you guys about the Kingston HS All Star rock band...
Alright. Enough of my drama! I hope everyone is doing well. I have been reading journals, but only posting if I had something valuable to say.
Congrats on your speedy recovery. Honestly there is no shame in what you did, and "failure" is generally the only way we learn-it keeps us from becoming complacent.
psh.. the facebook item was nothing. It was true and being called back is something to be proud of and share.
