tis the beginning

tomorrow i start my internship as a PA on a movie being filmed here in wilmington. this is my first movie. my nerves are boiling. i'm willing to bet i will throw up before my call time in the morning. 
it's surreal. this is something i have dreamed about for years. then the moment came last week when i saw my name listed as "producer assistant" on the official crew list. i had immediate butterflies, but soon enough, the nerves set in. i'm a classic over thinker (it's a real problem).
in the film world, you have one impression and that stays with your name pretty much for good. we hear it over and over again at school; how important your first job on set is for your name and reputation. 
and here it is: my first official job on an actual movie set. 
it's kind of a make it or break it situation. but.... i say, it's time to make it. 
so, here i go! day 01 tomorrow. call time: 9 a.m.  
(it's a 14 hour day. don't worry, i am going to bed, mom.)

wish me luck!

I just laughed out loud because I was saying "she better get to bed" in my mind just as you answered me in your blog! You know me too well.
I'll say a little prayer for you honey. But not that you'll do well tomorrow. Because I KNOW that you'll do great. But I'll pray that your nerves will be calmed, that you'll sleep well and that you'll have peace and confidence.
Now go break a leg Miss Producer Ass't!!! Soooooo PROUD!!!
