Happy Blogtember Dolls,
This questions crops up frequently - If I wasn't at College, if I had money in my pocket and the education to take me anywhere I wanted, how would I use it?
'If I could take 3 months out of my current life, no commitments, no problems, what would I be doing?'
For me, it's a tough toss-up. I would love to go out ticking off some of my bucket list (seeing the Northern Lights, swimming with Dolphins, or maybe even building a school in Africa), but as soon as I saw this question, two things immediately jumped out at me.
(Above: An award I won for 'Most Promising Actor' at my old Drama School.)
Performing has always been one of my strongest passions. Singing, Dancing, but mainly Acting. If I could take 3 months out of College, it would be for a major film role. A film where I could star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, or Ryan Gosling (without the weird age gap of course). It wouldn't just be something for me to return to normal life and brag about, but an amazing way to jam my foot in the door and yell "here I am!".
One thing I know for sure, is that drama school isn't for me. I just can't imagine myself there and I don't want to spend all that money on something I might not enjoy. I do currently have an agent, and I go to every casting I possibly can, so fingers crossed! And if I did get that amazing acting job, let's just say that a Chanel bag would be calling my name (as well as a savings account)!
The internship would be such great experience. The industry is all about connections and the amount of people I could connect with from an opportunity like that is crazy! It might even mean that I had the skills necessary to not need to go to Uni, but use my experience to climb from the bottom upwards!
However, like starring in a feature film, this is too just a dream.
So now you know how I would spend those 3 months, how would you spend yours?
Always leave a little sparkle wherever you go, Kay xo
