W.O.W. This last month has been super intense- well, the last 6 weeks, really. I'm finally back from the Mission Trip with the Middle School Youth Group from my church (got back last night). We had an amazing time! However, after a week-long summer camp and now a week-long Mission Trip, I'm about middle schooled out. I slept 13 hours and had a 3.5 hr. nap today. Seriously- I was tired. My throat was sore and I was losing my voice on the trip...I thought it was just from lack of sleep and overuse from the 2 intense weeks with the youth group. However, all that sleep hasn't made an improvement and now my tonsils are swollen and I have a low grade fever. Argh.
My LA trip was brief but good. One of my friends out here grew up with a guy who is now a big shot casting director. She sent him my pics/info and he wanted to meet me. So, my flight was at 7am....I landed at 9:45am Pacific time, watched Transformers to waste some time, and then met with him at 3. It was surreal. This was a REAL casting director- where REAL Hollywood deals go down. I was the only actor in there and overheard their phone calls. "Did you get the email from Steven Segal?" "Have you called Charlie Sheen?" "Get Cheech on the phone." SERIOUSLY!!! It was crazy! I don't know if anything will come of it- I hope so, otherwise it was a waste of time and money, but it really was cool. After meeting with him, my flight home was at 9:45pm. I landed back home at 5:20am the next morning. Coast to coast to coast in 24 hours.
I've been going pretty much non-stop since our anniversary trip in May...Anniversary trip, AZ trip, Summer Camp, LA and back in 24 hours, and Mission Trip. So, now I'm back and things should get back to normal...whatever that may be....And now....I need a vacation.
