Extra, Extra!

I had a really fun experience the other day. I'd heard about a need for extras for Southwest Airlines commercials and was like, "Oh, that sounds fun!" so I looked into it. I found it was very easy to apply so I did. Shortly thereafter, I was selected!

I'd never done anything like it so I went into it open minded and with a sense of adventure. I honestly had no idea what to expect. And I must tell you, it was a lot of fun! I now have mastered the "fake conversation" role, the "walking and looking at my boarding pass like I don't know where I'm going" role, and the "walking and talking on my cell phone" role. I'm now a pro at all these things. ;)

I had no idea so much goes into making a commercial, though! In the end, I'll probably just be a body in the background, just a blip on the screen - but, hey! my blip may end up in as many as eleven commercials, and it was an enjoyable experience! :)

Btw, I think
"Oh, that sounds fun!"is going to be my new motto. :P

Free Like a Bird

I've been enjoying the summer! I love the freedom this time of year brings! I love having so much flexibility with my schedule and being able to follow my own rhythms as far as when and what I want to do. I could never be a caged bird!

It's weird to think that there are only a few more weeks before school starts again, and everything once again will crank into high gear. I really would like to engage my free spirit more ...

Anyway, this picture is me in Native American costume. We do a little skit with the camp kids, and I had a friend help me make an outfit so I could be more in theme. Tons of fun! And I kind of dig the braids! :)
