Good idea, Bad idea
We're getting into Spring now, so I thought I should go ahead and start gettin' me some sun. So, I figured I usually shoot hoops before I work out, so why not shoot hoops in the sun? I'll tell you why not: It's stinkin' hot out there and the sun will sap all your energy if you let it. Sure enough, it let it and it did. So, I shot around for about a half hour, hopefully getting some sun, and then I went ahead and started my workout. About two sets in, I felt awful--tired, nauseous, sweaty, dehydrated--and all I wanted to do was go home. Looks like I need a new way to get some sun. Maybe I'll have to resort to reading by the pool.
The books are in
The books that my acting instructor recommended have arrived and I'm well into Acting in Film. So far, I've found it to be a very practical book with a lot of good information for a guy like me who hasn't ever been anywhere near a set. The book's not about "being a tree" or the ethereal part of acting, but it covers more of the basics like how to act on a set, how to prepare a scene and things like that. It's really interesting and I'm sure it'll help me even next week at my lesson. Best of all, it's an information-packed, fast read.
A week from tomorrow, I'll be in Jacksonville, beginning my version of Spring Break. I'm really looking forward to it and I'm sure it'll do me some good to rest up, but I'm not yet to the point where I feel I need to "get away". I think that's good, though, because I'm not getting stressed at work and I won't put unrealistic expectations on my trip. I'm looking forward to seeing my family and friends and just sittin' around and gettin' paid.
