Audition #2 was the exact opposite of Audition #1. I was calm, I knew what I needed to do, and I felt prepared. My monologue was already permanently engrained in my head and I knew my lines would come. Actor's faith. I got down to the emotion and I was initially nervous when I stood up to give my monologue, but overall I felt comfortable. Obviously she saw something in me that she liked, so she offered me representation. Like I said earlier, I asked her to give me a day to think about it. I spoke with my acting coach and she told me to follow up with the last agency. I didn't. I honestly thought I would receive a letter from them. So on Friday, I called the woman who offered to represent me and accepted her offer. I felt good about it. Then I got another phone call which left me at a crossroads.

As much as I am kicking myself for not following up with the last agency, I have to remember why I liked the woman I met with initially and why I told her "yes." I felt comfortable with her. I felt a connection with her. I felt like her agency would be a good fit for me. I was obviously feeling extremely conflicted yesterday and I needed to get back to the heart of the matter. In a business where integrity is often nonexistent, I am determined to keep my own. So I called the last agency, thanked them for their time and their consideration, and informed them that I had already accepted an offer from another agency. I feel good.
