Back on the wagon. In the office.

Screening continues, and I'm wading through hundreds of pieces of paper.
Some notes:
  1. I'm amazed at the sheer number of Studio applicants who didn't write their essays in a word-processing program and then paste the answers into their application. There are spelling errors, incorrect grammar, too/to or there/their/they're or it's/its errors. The details in your application speak to the way you approach the finer points in all your studies...I'm just sayin'.
  2. Resumes: reverse chronological order. Check the spelling of your roles/operas. Make sure it's easy to read - plain text, MSWord or PDF.
  3. Head shots can be too sexy/revealing. If we can't tell if you're really wearing clothes in the picture, it's too racy. (I tried to get Kim to title this blog post "If boobs could sing." No go.)
Tomorrow is another day of immersion in the database, with a flu shot in the mix for good measure. I hate having to say "no," but am going to focus on saying "yes." One more week of screening, then scheduling and notifications and before you know it we'll be flying to LA.

Crazy stuff!

By the way, the last deadline is midnight tonight. That's eastern time, y'all.

My five:
  1. Casual Friday!
  2. Fuzzy slippers.
  3. Hot tea.
  4. Good, challenging workouts.
  5. Cinnamon.
