Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are well and having a great day. Thank you for reading and sharing in my life. You are awesome. This blog "The Journal" is about my and things that I do. Putting this together is at a time when and while I am in most eyes a "no body" but I thought that if I start now then I started. So, come with me in my journey of life. I will do my best to try and motivate you and encourage you.
I am an actor so I will start with that. When I started my journey in the of acting I was not sure how to succeed. Most people success stories had one of two elements that I did not have. First thing is money, and two connections. I had neither but I was and am determined to succeed. So, I did and I do have determination. However, I had no clue as to how to go about doing anything. So, I did a lot of things over time and one of those things was take acting classes. I still enjoy taking acting classes but I am thankful that I know more now than what I knew then. I did my best to be a sponge and learn and research as much as I could. I asked many questions and researched acting and entertainment. My focus became TV and Movie acting. I tried to learn about this portion of the industry. I did have some limited success but it was not until I started doing background work that I really started learning. Networking and meeting people is and was a very important part of my learning. I learned about the industry and about acting in general and specifically.
Everyone one's journey is different but what I can say is that what is the same is the drive and determination that you will need to succeed in any industry. I am using acting as an example but you can apply and adjust the principles to help you in any niche. One step at a time and one day at a time is very important. Having a plan and objective keeps you focused. You will have failures don't be discouraged. Learn from it and improve and keep pressing on. You can do it. However, it does take efforts, time, determination, drive and discipline.
At the bottom of a mountain looking up it looks impossible but if you just focus on taking that next step you will reach the top in no time and wonder why you was so afraid. You can do it. Thank you for reading and this is my blog for today. I will post once a month and more if I am able. Thank you again.

Hello friends, fans, and family,
Thank you for checking out my new site about me. Ah, I may not share everything here but a lot will go here for your entertainment and maybe what I share may help you. As of right now and/or today we as in the world and everyone in the USA is trying to stay positive through this pandemic. The gyms are closed and social gatherings are prohibited. Few places remain open due to necessity needs.
I workout more so that a good thing, haha. I am also eating healthier and working out at home. We are told that we can still go outside and take walks and such so I look to do that as well. I may start searching for a job in a few days as things remain uncertain. Hollywood jobs are non-existent right now so there is no amount of hustling will get some a gig.
Being an actor is not easy and I think that everyone in entertainment is going through some sort of troubles at the moment. I have been posting more on YouTube. Maybe I can get some YouTube goals accomplished while I am here at home. I think that my YouTube channel is really growing. I don't know if I will be able to monetize this year but I am going to work towards that goal. I have been getting good feed back from my YouTube (YT) channel. I think that, that is a good thing. I always try to keep my videos entertaining and informative. My YT channel has come along way. I am totally happy with the progress that my channel has made over the years.
(NEW) A quick update: With the stimulus bill passed and much needed relief on the way in the near future we can breathe a bit easier. Even though we are not out of the woods yet. The crack down on public gatherings is still in affect and people has found new ways to communicate due to necessity. I am happy to announce that a monetary relief is on the way and as an out of work actor I know that this help is going to be needed. We in the entertainment industry do not know how long this is going to be but we remain steadfast. Moreover, the whole country does not know how long this is going to last. Most churches has been heavily affected. Most churches depended heavily on their members to pay bills and for day to day operations. When the people suffers the church suffers. Before I got I am going to post the information in regards to the CARE ACT: This information came from the: Tax Foundation.org website. I have linked the website so that you can read it yourself.
The CARES Act builds on the two former pieces of legislation by providing more robust support to both individuals and businesses, including changes to tax policy. The bill includes:
So, what do I do to stay motivated? A lot of things really. one of the things that I do is workout. I enjoy working out and if helps me to focus. Another thing that I do is pray and read my bible. Yes, I enjoy meditating and God's word helps me to stay centered. He is my center and my spiritual core. Ah, I also like to draw and play video games. My computer is not working properly so streaming is not possible but sometimes I am able to get in a few games before my computer stops works, haha. I am also working on some new music and a book. All of these efforts keeps me motivated. I decided to stay focused and motivated this is not always easy but it is what i decided to do for myself.
I am going to close with, during this pandemic we as people realize how short life is and can be. It seems like a long journey until you are at the spot where you thought that you would never reach. Whether it is an age, a place in life and/or an ominous goal. Once you get there all you can think is that I never thought that I would get here. Wow, I am here. Then, oh my I am here, haha. So, through it all keep your head up and stay focused and be safe out there.
