My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Great for what it is - a solid list of ideas. It's also a broad list of ideas: not every idea requires a computer, which is cool for the non-tech folks.

I have a professional voiceover demo and I even became, for a time, the official voice of the automated attendant at Scholastic Headquarters in Lake Mary (north of Orlando).

And I was in a few industrials, too.

Oh yeah!

I don't talk about it much because after a while Pat got really jealous and made me quit. Of course, it is my fault I didn't stand up to her, but whatever.

That is how I met my friend Daniela. And a lot of good friends, actually. Long before Disney. But I withdrew because... well, you know the rest. About a year after that, I found LJ and found my friends online.

Wow, that's really awesome! Was this during the time you were singing, too?

Yeah... it was right about the time that I started doing the singing gigs that Pat freaked out...

I started with acting classes up in Ocoee. Then a voiceover class. Then an advanced voiceover class. Then I studied dialects. I loved it. Totally. Then I decided to face the singing demon and the coach was amazing. She's the one who helped me create the pro demo for voiceover work and got me my first audition.

Anyway, when I moved into the singing class and branched out from there... that's when Pat started freaking out about me being gone from home two and three nights a week. Although, I worked from home and...what did we ever do anyway? But it took me years to understand that it was more that she was jealous that she'd lose me to all of these new people. Etc.
