On the way to acting class, for the first time since I moved to London, I got off at Liverpool Street Station instead of Shoreditch High Street. I love the vibes in East London, and it’s funny to see how the scenery changes as you walk from fancy shops to more quirky ones, from one neighbourhood to the other. Trendy cafes, vintage stores, the modern architecture blends with the old one, and then as you walk towards Brick Lane, you get the more industrial feels. As I’ve never been in that area on a Sunday, I was in for a surprise. The streets were buzzing with some very talented street musicians and performers – and some less talented ones too. Market stalls everywhere, colourful fruits and veg, cool clothing and art. To me, this is like a blend of New York and Barcelona.
Anyway, to the point. I have been taking a few drop-in acting classes on Brick Lane, at the Actors Door Studio. Today we had a screen acting class to practice our on-camera skills.
Have you thought about changing your name legally?
Or even just adopting a new name such as an artist or stage name?
Or you may know someone who wants to call them by a new name?
If your answer if yes to any of the questions above, then definitely keep reading.
I just wanna share my quick story with you here. 🙂
You are also welcome to watch my videos I made on this topic.
The first video is more about my ‘why’, and the second one is about the process and how to deal with unsupportive family and friends when it comes to changing your name.
Today wasn’t the best day of my life, I have been feeling really crappy. Actually let me just say this: I’ve been feeling fucking shitty. There you go.
It happens to me, still more often than I would like it to. BUT I do have this ability to turn things around and get myself out of a funk relatively quickly.
When I woke up this morning I had no idea what I’m gonna write about today, but thanks to the fact that I’ve been down most of the day, now I have a good topic to share with you. Look for the silver lining!
I truly believe these tips can help you feel better – if you implement them.
Yesterday on the bus I have been listening to The Model Health Show podcast hosted by Shawn Stevenson. His latest episode with Ed Mylett had a really profound effect on me I must say.
I would like to mention two major takeaways I had from this podcast.
One has to do with how we can have more self-confidence and the other one is about being inspired to create the most successful version of you.
