I’m a month out from turning 31. Here’s what my dirty 30 year has really been like.

Honestly, it’s been some good and some bad.

I didn’t celebrate the dirty 30 how I wanted, so I did a watered down version of it. Due to losing people to coronavirus, I didn’t feel comfortable going out to bars or celebrating. For my 32nd (HOPEFULLY THE VIRUS IS GONE BY THEN!?!?! Shit.) I may have to pull in a dirty thirty and a dirty thirty one shot.

2 months into being 30, I started losing people. I won’t go into every single person that passed away, but it was literally one person after the other.

Acting

Bookings for acting projects took a hit in 2020. But in 2021, I made up for it with two bookings in last weekend (April 16th, and April 18th, 2021). I want to get rid of all my old projects on my demo reel and keep it at 2021 and up.

According to my agents, I still get cast for high school projects because I don’t look my age. On the other hand, my body is in my 30’s now. I got up for a 5:30 am call time and I was tired for days. This is a crossroads because on one hand I look young, but feel the energy drain. I do suspect some of my energy drain might be from all the stresses of losing so many people in my life. I never tell most friends how bad it gets because I told you I personally don’t like burdening people, period.

I LOVE MY GRAY HAIR I’M GETTING! I was gonna highlight my hair, but since it’s doing it naturally, why mess with the process? Because I “look younger” I welcome my gray hair!
