I haven't written in a really long time but good things have happened! :-) I auditioned for a woman who is an aspiring manager. She's related to a major producer/recording artist and she has a lot of connections, etc. and she was looking for talent. So I went and met with her, sang some songs, told her about myself and apparently she loves me. Although she's not technically representing me cause we haven't signed anything I consider her my manager, lol. She's working on getting me into a studio to record a demo. It's kinda going slower than she had thought but I have faith in her. She seems believable and I haven't had to pay her anything so that's better than most of the people I've dealt with while trying to get in the industry, lol.
I also have a new job. I haven't started yet but I'm giving my two weeks at my old job tomorrow. I'll still be working in the same field but I'll be making $6 more an hour and I only have to work 3 days a week! :-D Sweetness... That leaves the week for working out, watching tv, reading blogs, etc. lol.
My best friend Erin is coming back from Spain on Saturday. I told her all about what's happened while she's been gone and she's really psyched for me. If I do make it she's moving with me to Cali... she has no choice. I'll need a friend lol. She'll be my sidekick.
The BET Awards were on last night. Jamie Foxx and Fantasia making out... VOMIT! Lol. I really did feel queasy after watching that. Beyonce on the other hand had an amazing performance. She and Jay-z have such great chemistry. It was definitely hot... I bet you they have lots of hot, crazy sex.... Anyway maybe in a couple of years I'll be at that show... Keeping my fingers crossed. I think my ultimate goal would be to perform at the Grammy's though... That'd be amazing.
Anyway that's the update for now. I'll try to write more often. Keep being fabulous!
Busy Busy Bee
So I've been very busy. I started a diet. I weighed myself yesterday and I was 181.6. I will keep track of how much I lose and will post the amount every Friday. I also have an audition with a agent/manager on Sunday evening so I've been practicing what I want to sing. Keep your fingers crossed for me. Other than that life has been pretty normal. I've picked up several overtime shifts because frankly I want more money than I got in my last pay check, lol.
Oh yeah I forgot! I think I'm going to go to a beach body boot camp. It starts on Monday. They're supposed to really kick your butt in shape. I'll see what the manager I'm auditioning for says and whether or not she's interested in working with me. If she is I'll do it so I can lose the weight faster, if not I'll just keep going to my normal gym and save myself the money.
I just watched Christina Aguilera perform her new single on the MTV Movie Awards and she was so amazing. She's one of my favorite artists currently out there. She says what's on her mind and she's not afraid to be criticized. I love her and the song is awesome and the performance was so energetic. I love it when you can be watching a performance on tv and have the urge to get up and dance. That means the performer is doing there job if they can make a connection with you through the tv. So great! Sigh. Hopefully someday that'll be me.
I've been looking up casting calls but they're all for lame ass reality shows. Speaking of which the one I auditioned for last month will start airing on ABC in July I believe. It's called The One. Maybe you'll see me on tv! Woohoo that'd be cool. Except that I was rejected in the second round lol. Anyway my nose is itchy from this facial mask I put on so I'm gonna go wash it off. Write more later....
Researching is Fun!
So today was a pretty uneventful day. It rained all day here in Brockton, very dismal and I didn't want to do much of anything. I will start going to the gym again on Sunday. I'm kind of excited about it. Now that I have my iPod nano I will be more motivated I feel, plus I've already lost a few pounds so that's good.
I start my new pills in a few days too so that should help with the whole acne situation. A little background: I started taking birth control pills about 3 months ago. I developeled ridiculous acne. It sucked hardcore but I didn't connect the pills to the cause of my acne. I just figured my luck of having great skin ran it's course so I ordered Proactiv after watching Jessica Simpson talk about how wonderful she looks now that she uses it. So I started using the product and nothing changed. I was kinda miffed until something made me go look up the side effects of the brand of pills I was taking and sure enough there it was, acne/rash may be a side effect. So I called my doc and she prescribed something new. So hopefully my beautiful, glowing skin will come back to me soon, lol.
I think I want to get my teeth whitened. I'm trying to prioritize and right now getting my car fixed and paying off my school so I can go back and graduate are my priorities so I probably won't get it done for a while. But it would be nice. I don't know, I always feel like my teeth are so dark and yellow but then I see them in pics and they look fine. Who knows...
Today I looked up NuStars Talent Program. I went to a free seminar they had last year and auditioned for the program and was chosen but I didn't have the money to pay for it. This year I do though so I decided to check it out and see if it was legit of if it's just another scam. A lot of people have it on their resumes as something they've done but I don't know if they would say it's what launched their careers or if it's just another thing they did along the way until they got their big break. The most notable person who did it is the guy who plays Ethan Crane on Passions, Eric Martsolf. As of right now if they come back to Boston I'm going to do it. Unless I find a smoking gun showing they suck at life and just want your thousands of dollars.
I also looked up housing in L.A. since I want to move there in a year or so. Gee whiz is it expensive. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places but I'm gonna have to make top dollar in my field to be able to afford living there and be able to have time to go to auditions and acting classes.
I already know what I'm going to do for work until I make it, I'm gonna continue being a residential counselor in some sort of program for children and adolescents with special needs. I've already found several organizations in California that are constantly looking for people. Since I already have experience and I'm going to get my degree in Child Development I should have no problem scoring a job. Plus they have very flexible schedules which will allow me to go on auditions and casting calls and whatnot.
So that's pretty much what I did all day. The Red Sox game got rained out in NYC and the NBA Finals don't start for another day or two so there was nothing interesting on tv to watch. I may call it a day early and go to bed before midnight. OMG that'd be awesome, lol. I need to stop sleeping til like noon. I don't feel refreshed when I oversleep. I have to start taking my vitamins again. I think that'll help kill the anemic symptoms. Alrighty folks, that's all for today. I'm gonna take some before pics so you peoples can see what I look like now.... until next time!Technorati Profile
In The Beginning...
There was a girl who wanted to have a successful career as a musician and actress. That girl is me. My name is Nadia, I'm 22 years old from Boston, MA. I've been singing and performing since the age of 6. I've been trying to "make it" for the last 7 years. I've been to dozens of auditions, casting calls, and interviews. I've been rejected tons of times but it doesn't phase me. Because I know I have what it takes. I know that someday I
will be on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine giving interviews about my newest album and how amazing it is. So stick around, you can say you knew me before I was famous ;-)
