tara x0x0 <3
1. "White Irish Drinkers" on wednesday was fun/tiring all at the same time. BEST PART : unlimiteddddddd PB & banana samiches :) it was sooo delicious. Except there was alot of smoking (herbal cigs & smoke machines) that basically made me smell like a chain smoker when i got home. Everyone was really interesting though, and i was lucky enough to meet someone else who works with Thomas (Thomas Saint Management 917.434.8092 - if you need me. haha.).
2. I went to Stanley Kaplan's Agency yesterday. Very nice man, and im gonna start working with him. This should be interesting.

GMA & ActorsFEST !
G00d M0Rning America & ActorsFEST :
1. G00D M0RNiNG AMERiCA - so much fun. i got to see shwayze and basically stand 4 feet away from they & they said hi to me, and told me they like my jacket (ZEBRA :)) and i saw Sam Champion (whose sooo pretty) lol. it was amazing being on such a crazy set and watching everyone run around like chickens without heads lol. TELEMUND0 was filming outside the studio so that was pretty cool too.
2. ActorsFest - trying & unfortunately not really worth it. Me & Seth Dale (www.sethdale.com) - got to the city at 530 in the morning to wait with hundred of other aspiring actors & actresses. People had even camped out! .. lucky for us it wasnt raining tho :) -- finally we were able to register & sign up for an audition slot of NICK/TEEN NICK. basically we were to old (even though they told me i was cute & adorable ) but i got to put my headshots into a bunch of boxes for diffrent casting directors .. so maybe itll be worth it. -- oh and did i mention i got a free bag, waterbottle & pen. yea, im that cool. lol.
Tommorow ill be doing some extra work that Thomas ( Thomas Saint Management 917.434.8092) on the set of the "White Irish Drinkers" tommorow. Its a movie based in the 70's so i get to dress like 'That 70's show" lol. ill let you know how it goes.
