I like this town

yesterday marked one month of being graduated. (i think...) im probably wrong.

anyway, I have now booked 2 commercials. The first was unpaid and speculative. The second is paid. and airing. and films tomorrow! I have booked 2 music videos (unfortunately could only film one cuz a shoot went over. But I got paid (well i might add) and Im a lead in it. and its a band i like... so look for it! the song is called "Beatbox" and its by The Sounds. I also got a lead in a play here in Hollywood and got a lead ina new indy that starts next week. I am also planning on meeting with producers for a hosting gig on the style channel (but Im debating that cuz of the buyout) and Im now officially part of 2 promo moeling groups that get paid to wear certain clothes and go to bars. this is a good thing. But Im not allowed to 1.- get drunk, or 2.- go home with anyone, or 3.- go to the bathroom without a buddy. lolz. I have yet to sign with a theatrical agent, cuz i honestly cant decide. and Im gunna give it a bit more time, cuz Im getting new headhsots in 9 days (for free! God Bless promo videos.)

Ok, I dont know who reads these things, but maybe one day I'll come back and look at it and be like... wow- good month, tash.

Oh yeah, and Ashton Kutcher is following me on twitter. still. Hes written me twice. That may be the coolest thing thats happened to me.

Im still waiting to hear about a pilot thats all improv. a la The Office. Hope that works out. Other than that Im stoked for my shoot tomorrow and to start rehearsing this wekend for my play!

Very Busy. Very fulfilled. Very Surprised. and thanks to today's dentist visit, very numb.

Over 'n Out.

jobs?

updates schmupdates. now i wanta cupcake.

so i filmed my first commercial. speculative only. but for a superbowl spot for careerbuilder.com - which is radical. Im filming 2 (count em) music videos on monday. one is a rap video in which i dance in a bikini- gotta love that college education. The second is awesome though. Its for a band i really like called the sounds. The song is "beatbox" and i get to beatbox in the intro and be one of a few actors throughout the video who "create the sounds" of the song... or something. either way im getting paid and its gunna be awesome. The just played letterman, and i think this song is gunna be pretty big cuz it is so freakin catchy. yes. also have two auditons for tuesday. wednesday is open but i might be disneylanding it on thurs, friends b-day on friday, and clubbing on sat. now all i need is the money for said adventures...

oh, and also very cool- im getting $550 headshots for free for doing a promo video for the photographer. well, techinically theyre 450, but the makeup is $100. Im so stoked, i just get to do the shoot with someone filming me then i get interviewd about working with the photographer. easy. as. pie. and i must say this woman is AWESOME. allow me to namedrop tracy birdsell to anyone looking for new shots.

also, i officially weigh the least i have in 6 years. holy crap. eating tons, but working out an hour a day. oddly enough- its one of my favorite parts of my day. and get this... i lost my mp3 player and have been doing it sans music for two weeks and im loving it. weird. sure do hope this phase doesnt pass me by. but in all reality ive been on this "excercise kick" since the end of february... so its been almost five months. damn. since summer of two years ago- I have lost 28lbs. aw hell yes. now i dont know if i spelled february right. how come this blog doesnt have spellcheck?

ya know whats weird. i dont miss school. like, maybe a teensy bit only. a few people, a few oppurtunities, a few places. but i mean, this freedom is AWESOME. My wings were so ready for flight. im loving meeting new people, exploring this city, being a professional actor. i even bought secondhand jeans on melrose two days ago. i mean, how official can i be...? ...someone please punch me for writing that.

ok, happy end-of-july-fourth everyone. im going to bed.

peace, love and twitter.
