There definitely was. Probably a lot more than most people realize since I was pretty much certain that I wasn’t ever going to get out of Lima. But things did get better and that’s really all I care about.
Do you honestly think I was going to let Puck do any kind of decorating? He has things on his side of the bedroom, but mostly everything else in the apartment was chosen by me.
Would that have been terrible, though? I mean… I don’t know. My family is there and it would have been a lot easier to get a job. But it was starting to be less exciting and I definitely changed it up enough to be engaged again. I mean, like, in school and life. Not… engaged.
Okay, yeah. Awesome. When’s your break?
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with anyone deciding to move back to Lima to start their career and life there. It’s home, a lot of people find comfort in that small town setting. Not a lot of people want to raise a family in big huge cities and there’s nothing wrong with that.
Mine is near the end of October. Maybe we can arrange some kind of Halloween party or to find some haunted houses to go to.
Well therein lies the challenge. You have to have the right attitude about it I guess. And I think it’s harder to do for introverted people. I think some celebrities do get famous by luck, like Paris Hilton, but then a lot of people with actual talent do have to pave the way for themselves. There’s definitely connections and it’s important to push one another forward. If you’re close to someone in the industry they can give you a push but it’s really challenging. I guess as an elementary example, I have sort of a relatively decent internet following so hypothetically speaking, if you did something like partake in a film and you tweeted about it, I’d also make a tweet saying something like, hey guys, check out this film my friend is in, it’s pretty great, and if I have followers who are in the film industry they can see it and if they like it they can link back to you. People do the same thing for me and that’s how I build my following. The important thing is actually being active and doing things that can impress people, building a portfolio, so to speak.
I guess social media is a lot more important now than it would have been a few years ago. It’s almost too hard to get noticed with the sea of people who are all trying to get their name out there. If you don’t have something to offer people then they really don’t want to waste their time dealing with you. Like how easily the ‘heartthrob’ actors are replaced when someone newer or more attractive shows up. The actors who have been around for years are the most talented, but there’s no denying that there are a lot who only get parts for their looks then disappear. I guess that’s a life that we have to adjust to if we want to work in the industry. There’s probably always going to be someone more talented, more attractive, with better connections, and so on. I just hope we’re all able to find our little niches in the entertainment world and to get to do what we enjoy.
It would be pretty terrible of me if I didn’t say pugs since I know own one, right?
That’s awesome, Q. If anyone deserves to have everything she ever wanted, it’s you. And, yeah, Kitty and I are actually planning a trip up for her to come visit. I probably won’t see my parents until Thanksgiving though. How about you? You have any plans to visit Lima?
Thank you. I’m pretty happy with everything an how good things have worried out for me. We’ve all been through a lot and definitely deserve to have the best. I’m glad that you’re going to be able to see each other soon. I don’t know if I’m going back to Lima anytime soon since we decided to have Thanksgiving here.
Thanks, Quinn. We definitely had a lot of fun exploring the city and basically playing tourist all day.
That’s good to hear. Did you go to the statue of liberty and all of those typical tourist things?
