WHEW! GOT THROUGH CHARACTER VOICE DAY – mixed feelings for me. Worked with David on various ways to develop voice for the character from inside out. For me, a really talented voice actor did the same monolog as I did, and she did it first. Completely different take then mine, and it threw me a bit. But all’s well that ends well. I managed to get through it without a melt down , and I had to COMPLETELY go out of my voice print range and comfort for my dialog as a talking ‘bulldog’ yikes! But I nailed that and surprised myself. Than immediately after arriving home after all day in voice acting land, Mark and I went off to dinner and book club. It was great to see our book club friends (and NOT cook). All in all, a busy and interesting day.
CHILL. Junk TV, minor cleaning, layabout in PJs for much longer than I care to admit…
How about you?
Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.
*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.
PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. 🙂
BB (Body Balance) number 8 Sleep: 8 hours divided into 2 (good first 4, good last 4) Tummy/Gut: gut a bit more full than tummy. Ate dinner REALLY later than usual because of book club, and very hungry after not eating since breakfast due to voice acting. Hungry after 1 hour of waking. Ate part of my left over dinner for breakfast. Enjoyed that! Energy: High Moderate. Mood: Grateful.
BB is my personal criteria, and I don’t think too hard about it. I ask myself at the keyboard, what is my BB? A number between 1-10, including halves, pops into my head. I write it in my post Then I figure out why it is higher or lower and gently make note.
If you are interested these are my measures.
- Sleep. Quality and Amount.
- Tummy/Gut – If I ate what my body asked for, usually above and below the belly button feel balanced. Ate too much, below the belly button feels more full. Ate too little, the reverse.
- Am I hungry within 1 hour of waking? I have found that I feel best if I am hungry within 1 hour of waking. This tends to make my eating day even and not heavy on food in the evening. But I don’t eat if not hungry unless I’m about to ride or hike. I’ve learned I need to fuel these morning activities, or I’ll bonk.
- What is my energy level? Subjective, but telling.
- A quick look at my mood.
