It’s that time of the year where I daydream of all the things I would buy if I were a successful actress… As if! I daydream about that all the time. To be precise: every night before sleeping, Somewhere Only We Know by Keane playing on my iPod as a soundtrack to my happy mind-movie. But those daydreams always include the extreme: fairytale like designer dresses, Oscars, my family close to me in a house in the LA Hills…
I do have a more realistic wish list though, and according to scientists that’s extremely healthy…
If there is one thing I learned while studying Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, it’s that setting specific, realistic, challenging goals has been proven to actually help people achieve better. So not “I want to be an actress,” the emphasis is on specific. Therefore I present to you my acting Christmas wishlist for the coming year…
- An O1B visa for 3 years
- Getting my first U.S. talent agent (required for the visa!)
- Becoming S.A.G
- Winning that role in the Dutch TV show
- Getting my first car, ever.
- Getting my first paying U.S. acting job
- Finding a good friend in LA
- Convincing my BF to move to LA
- Signing with a print agent
