So I moved to LA about 3 months ago. I currently have in my checking account $5.88. What?! Yep.
I'm not saying it as some sort of "poor me" situation. I think it's amazing. I did not have enough money to put gas in my car last week. So I just drove it until I ran out...on the 170 highway. Luckily I have a support system that is willing to jump in and save me at 10:30 a night on the middle of a median (thank you Annabeth) or fill up my tank (thank you Aunt Leslie).
I'm not starving. I have a bed, and I get my first paycheck on Friday! But the most awesome thing about this situation is that I am adding to my legend. Some day when people are talking about my road to fame they will say, "Well she didn't even have enough money to put gas in her car."
You know, like they always talk about Jewel living in her car, or Charlize Theron, or Daniel Craig living on people's couches. Yes, I am basically saying I am Daniel Craig without the steely gaze, however my abs are similarly hot, well...close.
And I am an actor willing to live with less at the moment to gain more. Yeah! Let's do this thing.
