A Post of Joy: I Got The Part!

After a period of solely bad news, sickness and sad blog posts, the tide has turned. I hate to fall into cheesy clichés but, you know…every cloud has silver lining. And to throw in a Dutch saying as well: after rain comes sunshine! Because you know what? I GOT THE PART IN THE DUTCH TV SHOW! See the official announcement here!

And I have no one to thank but my wonderful army of voters; my friends, family, blog readers, twitter followers….Thank you so, so much! The competition was fierce and there were some amazing contestants. I’ll just have to do my utmost to be worthy winner!

So lots of things are going to change now. Let’s continue with the clichés: Life is what happens when you make plans… 

Tonight I’m going to get a call from the network, so I’m very excited about that because that would really seal the deal. Then I have to pack my whole LA life of 5 months, get on a plane, and suddenly be back in the Netherlands again. Or maybe I’ll just pack one suitcase and leave my homey here intact. I am planning on returning to Tinseltown after all. Who knows? Since the last couple of months my vision of the future has been turned upside down quite a few times, I am kind of developing a phobia against planning.

But it seems to be at least 99% sure that coming Saturday I’ll be on the set of the Dutch TV show, Who’s in Who’s Out, doing what I love most: singing and acting. And from there on I’ll get to stay in the show as long as I don’t get voted out. So I might have to turn into a votes beggar a couple more times. I hope you’ll forgive.

Thanks so much again and stay tuned for lots of posts here about my time on set! If the powers that be allow me of course…;)

    Hoi Shanice,
    Wat een geweldig nieuws!!! En wat leuk dat je in Wiwo gaat optreden. Ik kijk er iedere week naar en ik vind het een leuke, flitsende show met een geweldige kijkdichtheid. Een van de actrices is Carolien Spoor. Met haar heb ik nog in LOFT gezeten. Zij doet ‘t ook erg goed daar in wiwo! Uiteraard stem ik weer op jou! En wie weet wat dat je nog gaat brengen. Toi, toi, toi!!

    HI, my name is Samira and I just discovered this blog. It’s amazing! It’s great that you share your experiences and advice with other people! A lot of people will benefit from that. I want to do the exact same thing you’re doing: moving to LA to follow my dreams! I always kind of had an idea on how to do it, but reading about how you did it gives me a lot more tips to help me along the way. I plan on moving to LA in 2013. I’m also from Holland, Den Haag to be exact. Om de een of andere reden dacht ik dat er maar 1 of 2 mensen doen wat ik wilde doen, en toen ik dus deze blog vond was ik helemaal versteld. Dit is precies wat ik nodig heb, advies van een mede Hollander lol! Ik hoop dat ik vragen aan je kan stellen over het hele verhuisgedoe naar LA. Ik weet er niet veel over en jij bent er nu een beetje een expert in.:D Ik wens je al het geluk en veeeeel succes in LA!
    Xx Samira
    PS Sorry voor de comment in twee talen, 😀 ik heb geen idee waarom ik dat deed.:D
