"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
Just two more days until I finally get to pack my bags, load up the U-Haul and head out west to Hollywood...well, Burbank to be exact.

I have such a range of emotions I'm experiencing right now:

Fear of the unknown...

Relieved that the time has FINALLY come (I have been wanting to move to LA since 2000).

Anxious as I really want to just jump right in & get started working on student films & shorts so that I can begin to get footage for my reel.

Hesitant as I don't want to bite off more than I can chew and really need to get my ducks in a row before putting myself out there. For example, I need to get settled in my new place, register my boys for school & childcare and take new headshots before submitting myself on anything.

And most of all Excitement- I can't use this word enough! I'm EXCITED to be moving to the entertainment capital of the world; EXCITED to dust off these rusty acting skills and enroll in a challenging class; EXCITED to start working on a set instead of in an office; EXCITED to live near beautiful beaches in sunny weather that's lovely rather than hot as he** (i.e. Houston & Las Vegas); and most of all EXCITED that I'll be surrounded by other artists & creative beings who'll be moving & shaking, creating art (whether serious or silly) at every turn and inspiring me along the way.

It seems like it's taken forever just to get to this point and yet I know that this is only the beginning of my journey.

Just 2 more days and this marathon will begin...
