The more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know, and the more a personal blog seems futile. I usually only want to write if I’ve learned something worth sharing, however, my posts become pure regurgitation. You might as well go read the original material. I might as well make blogs with reference lists.
With that said, my soul craves education, and I’ve been viewing videos on Ted.com to discover new things about the world, science, culture, technology, business, and creativity that I knew not before.
For starters, check out Brene Brown’s The Power of Vulnerability on TEDtalks. It’s easy on the ears but still impactful on the psyche and soul.
As for an update on my work, I had the honor of playing “Lacey” in a new teen comedy called, “The A List”, starring Hudson Thames (of Malibu Country) and many other up-and-coming stars. Just yesterday I saw the first rough-cut of the trailer, and my heart swelled with such pride and joy! Should be released in 2013. Follow us at @TheAListMovie
Then, I booked another movie. And it got post-poned. Therefore, I won’t even mention another detail.
My buddy Jordan Fisher and I are currently working on a duet cover “just for fun”, even though we recognize that YouTube content is steadfastly becoming a means of both publicity and audition material for prospective employers. Doing it for fun retains the pure creativity and joy of sharing something we love with others. Also in the bag is a fun holiday video with other Disney/Nickelodeon/YouTube stars, but I won’t speak too soon.
I’m also in college (and loving it). I think my major is going to be neuropsychology or neurology. Science was my least favorite subject growing up, but I have a growing fascination with the connections and chemicals and functions of the human brain. I even see it helping me dive deeper into character study for acting.
I’ve taken up a new hobby that will remain unnamed for now. It challenges me to overcome perfectionism by allowing myself to fail and pursue something I know very little about. That’s okay.
Speaking of perfection, I read a wonderful book called The Gifts of Imperfection. It’s an easy read, and I highly recommend it. It’s actually by Brene Brown, the TEDtalks speaker I mentioned above.
What have you been up to? What are three things you’d like to do outside of your comfort zone before the end of 2012? What’s stopping you?
That’s enough for now. Catch up with ya later.
