January to March 2007- I’m trying to make some cash!
I had to have medical procedures in December for my tummy and digestive system. I found out I have a hernia. A nurse from Grey’s Anatomy went with me and she was later mean to me on set. I wish I did not have the procedures done though because all they told me was what a holistic doctor had told me was wrong the week before. I was getting chest pains. My chest has gotten worse and now I take herbals for ulcers all the time. I ended up working as much as I could to try to play catch up with bills while studying web and trying to figure out a way to make funds that My conscious could accept. I worked allot at this time, so I am breaking up the year into quarters. Plus a lot of weird things happened this year. Peace and well… my work life on sets.

03/12/07 Cop The Apostles 13 hours ??? I was non-union and needed money after the cancer so guess what. I worked the Apostles from 9:30 am to 6 pm, and then ended up on Viva Laughlin which was taping in Palm Springs so they bused us there. I slept on the bus and got paid for the ride. Apostles was a pilot and they used me as a cop and paired me up with one of the principals. It did not get picked up, otherwise I might have worked it. I even heard one of the leads say something to the AD about making sure I came back. The AD I had worked with and I made myself cry for a funeral scene, and someone asked me if I was OK in between takes and I said- it is a funeral scene? hello you cry at funerals. I was acting so well the guy thought I was really upset. Funny.)

I did not trust it not coming from the Director or first AD.
