So there was one resolution that I know I should have included, but I see this as more of a life goal than just a year resolution. You could honestly say that resolutions shouldn't just be a yearly thing but a lifelong betterment of oneself right?!

Anyways a goal of mine is to work on Broadway and be hopefully one day (sooner rather than later) be part of AEA and SAG-AFTRA. Now there was a really great article I just found from Backstage that explains how to join AEA.

Then there is another caveat, trying to find out the auditions.

With social media I feel like it should be easier right? WRONG! I look at the linsk and some are for different states or they're looking for "EQUITY/AEA" members and/or I just don't fit what they're casting for.

A friend of mine has said they've even still submitted their stuff for shows that call for EQUITY people only. However for me, I feel like that's some sort of taboo or they'll just throw it out the pile when they see my resume and it doesn't say I'm a EQUITY person or even an EMC (Equity Membership Candidate).

Which then lies the issue of auditions. Do I do what my friend does and submit my headshot/resume too? Do I sacrifice my time to wait in the lines with everyone else who may not be union and give it a shot?

My inner child voice says, "YES!"
But the logical adult voice says, "No!"

And I feel conflicted. However it's a new year and I know I can't get a role without auditioning or even just getting a chance to show my stuff.

I'm just rambling....
---------------------------

tl;dr
I want to be a Professional Actor that is a part of AEA & SAG-AFTRA. Auditions stress me out. I will be auditioning for anything and everything I can. New Year, New Opportunities!
