Now remind me to keep writing in 2011! lol I am bad about not posting but once every few months and I have so much I wanna share!
Happy New Years Yall…..
Its 2011, one year after 2010, the next decade, the year I am suppose to graduate, one year before the world ends….HA…I’m lying…but ya’ll saw 2012, I didn’t so you tell me how its gonna go down….
Meanwhile I’m gonna reflect back, 2010 was a good year, it gave me what 2009 didn’t. 2010 was a successful year for me; I accomplished more than I set out to. I achieved feats I never thought I could achieve, went places with doors open that I thought were locked and never could open, explored and grew and matured beyond my previous growth and experiences and maturity, but most of all I got some pieces of my life back on track. It was a year for success because I had experiences much growth in 2009 and 2010 was much like my redemption year. There was much good created business-wise, I met success and failure but more of the former, I met the ladder with correction business-wise. I moved into my own apartment and finally experienced total solitude which actually was successful in its purpose, my high rent and alone-ness helped me to work hard and appreciate myself and the abilities that I have gained over the years to survive and make it in this cut throat environment and life. I had the blessing of great friends and people that helped me grow and support these abilities and Brian-nature that was sent to be made into a blessing for others. I appreciate God more for the ability to wake up, work hard, reach some success at my newly found internship or on a video project through O4K, or just the ability to sit out on the lakes and listen to him tell me what my life is guided towards. But also there were some dark hours and minutes while in 2010 and I felt that I became too complacent in my newly acquired happiness and allowed many of the goals I set out for 2010 to be deferred to 2011 because I didn’t concentrate my efforts into projects and actions that promised return. I sold myself short in many ways but was blinded by my lowering bar of expectation. With much success and knowledge comes the responsibility to serve and to share but there is a fine line when you are doing too much as a servant of others. There comes a line where once crossed that beef needs to be settle, where changes need to be made, and where you have to learn to trust, pray, and let go, instead of invest, loss, and ask where time went because you thought you would be successful doing things your way…or seeking someones gratification or acceptance on how you can succeed.
And I just want the money….money and cars…..cars and clothes……….. you keep the rest…….Ill trade the latter for love, trust, happiness, and companionship.
So Imma be successful in 2011, I’m not new me, or gonna be brand new, I’m just gonna be improved and more redefined. I’m gonna be seriously taken if I was never taken serious but I serious never should have not be taken there….I raised the standards and goals, because that’s what you do when you meet them…I reminded myself that God’s will is more powerful than mine, so why wouldn’t I do things his way? They supernaturally make sense but naturally always work in the best way…(Make sure you catch that…its soo important). IF I’m told that something needs to be done, then done will be the status I don’t even need to question why, and how will be given to me in wisdom…
Complacent I’ll never be, I’ll always work to achieve more because the day I stop working I die, and the day I stop chasing purpose will be the day I lose my own significance to become a puppet of the never sleeping, constantly wandering devil. The day I quit will be the day that Earth explodes, and the day I allow myself to be a grand excuse of a man will be the day that I should die a quick social death so I can be like a phoenix and rise out of ashes…
Humbled by life so that I don’t let arrogance rule my world, because too much pride occurs right before destruction but strong enough to not be swayed by obstacles, to not be defeated with barriers, and to not be held down by the weight of situations and occurrences that didn’t line up in my master plans because my eye stays on the prize and the chase never ends even when I reach it….just the aim changes.
I lend my support, my hand, my heart, my love to you in 2011 to be very productive, happy, successful, loved, and overall blessed in 2011………
My name is Tina Kerr and I am the Extras Casting Director for two television series (NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” and FOX’s “The Good Guys”) which are currently filming in the Austin and Dallas areas. On both projects we would like to have a better representation of the African American community, but do not have a lot of people in our talent pool who fit that demographic. We are looking for African American Men, Women and Children – ALL Ages, NO experience necessary! In addition to the general extra types (neighbors, football fans, high school students, restaurant customers, etc) that we will be using, we are also in need of others with the following special skills – football players, basketball players, barbers, police officers, business men and women with professional attire, precision drivers, paramedic/EMT’s, firefighters and many other skills. Extras do get paid and rates vary by location/project. In Austin for “Friday Night Lights” the rate is $7.25 per hour with an 8 hour guarantee of $58.00 plus time and 1/2 after 8 hours. In Dallas for “The Good Guys” the rate is $8.00 per hour with an 8 hour guarantee of $64.00 plus time and 1/2 after 8 hours. Meals are generally always provided and it can be a fun, new experience to work in television & meet new people. Work days can average anywhere from 4-14 hours per day and filming is usually done during the week with weekends off. I need all the help I can get in getting the word out to the African American communities in both areas and hope you are able to help with this.
