<editorsnote> Nerds, meet my buddy Leah. She’s pretty rad and has an INCREDIBLY random life. Like, no – for reals … did you know she has an obsession with vampires, psychics, and tarot card readers … and she had more sex as a teenager than in her 30s … anddddd she even had two ex boyfriends die violently – one from a heroin overdose, and the other was murdered. Holy moly roli poli oli – that shit be cray cray. Either way, she’s now here to write about her life, love, and all things nerd. I only have one more thing left to say … HIT IT LEAH!! </editorsnote>
In the last #GyspyMode update, I filled you in on my Tour Managing Gig in Philly,
Just as soon as the Gig started, it ended. 10 weeks early. $10,000 early.
So now what?
Well first and foremost, I went to Vegas with my girlfriend Leila Porreca.
It was a work-playcation and the first order of business was Guns N’ Roses. I covered the show for Rock Over America. read all about it— > HERE and after a crazy night of rock ‘n roll I got a VIP tour of Eli Roth’s Goretorium, www.Goretorium.com I have a 2-part exclusive look for Daily Dead News, read part one —> HERE
Oh, and there’s some Vegas pix over on www.mobli.com/LeahCevoli
And then… I took another leap of faith.
The job was over, and I found myself in the suburbs of Philly, with no income flow, a tiny creative flow, and no car (my lil hybrid is back in LA, and the work truck was gone).
After a long week of intense heart-to-hearts with my parents, my sisters, and my sister-friends, I have found myself in mid-town Manhattan.
Me and my Keifer kitty. (He seems to have stabled on his thyroid meds, fingers crossed).
My awesome sister-friend Tanya Perez, happened to have a spare room for rent. My awesome sister-friend Tina Norris, happened to be in town and available to drive me, kitty, and a butt-load of belongings from Philly suburbs to NYC.
So here I am.
We moved in last night.
Tanya and I went to yoga today.
My friend Alan Kistler and I had dinner tonight.
I feel good.
The goal is to work work work like only a crazy freelancer (aka actor/creative type can do). And I mean 2-3 shifts a day.
With sights set on the west coast mid-January.
So we’ll see what happens.
I’m submitting to tons of Indie Films, Commercials, and even Background work. Why not? I haven’t done background in years, and never in New York, but ya know what, it’s SAG work, helps towards my health insurance, and even though it’s background it’s still being on-set… and I haven’t been on set in like 7 or 8 months.
And of course promo-tradeshow-production work, whatever comes up.
I’m also in the midst of pre-production with sister-friend Denise Vasquez for a fundraising/live event called “Be Brave Be Bold Believe” which is going to benefit anti-bullying and suicide prevention organizations. This will take place spring of 2013 in Los Angeles.
Oh, and I’ve recently begun assembling a group of phenomenal panelists for a panel I’m presenting to the 2013 Convention circuit. “Women, All Shapes and Sizes Welcome”, we’ll be discussing body image and issues in the entertainment industry, along with personal stories and healing.
So excited about that!!
But at the end of the day, I want a home. Of my own. With a gorgeous man by my side, holding my hand, sharing adventures, and living life fully.
