I’ve just finished a one week acting course here in Brisbane.
We pretty much went through the basics so there was a lot of repetition for me, but we did a lot of improvisation and I’ve realised how important practicing my intuition is, maybe I’ve been too focused on my intellect lately.
Another thing I took from this course is to actually start applying for acting jobs here in Australia through starnow.com. There was a few interesting projects that I would love to be a part of, but I’m not sure how much of an obstacle my Swedish accent is, which I’m trying to work on.
Besides that I’ve had a wonderful time with my friend Luana whom I know from Rio. We’ve been talking a lot about starting over in a new country, without our families, and it’s nice to be with someone in the same situation.
There’s a lot of thoughts going through my head about my past still, that has a tendency to put me down sometimes, but I’m trying to work it out every day. Some days feel hopeless, and that’s when I lean on to the simple things in life. I do love this passage from the Bible:
Better is a little with the fear of the Lord , Than great treasure with trouble.
Proverbs 15:16 NKJV
Anyway, after one week in Brisbane I’m ready to move on. We’re gonna hit the Gold coast on Sunday, and from there I’ll probably visit Byron Bay before going back to Sydney which has been the most interesting artistic city so far. I guess it’s gonna take a while before I stick to one place here in Australia.
Most of all I need to focus on my relationship with Christ more, cuz that’s what’s gonna bring the most fruit in the end of the day.
