"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

So commercial headshots used to be the actor smiling. Back in the day of only having 72 exposures to make sure you "got" the headshot, actors were pretty limited. Nowadays, thanks to digital, we can delete the blinky shots or the ones where we're in the middle of talking, and we still have HUNDREDS to choose from.
And Agents especially love this, because insrtead of just haivng one smling, "commercial," shot, now they can ask for Characters! So hey, in homage to Laura Wise, I'm gonna show you a different character each day.

Here, Glow and I were going for "Natural, granola." See how the zipup says "Loves natura hikes!"? No? Well, it does. And I like how I look my age here. "Want to go to Disneyland, 8 and 10 year old kids?" Cause Disney LOVES doing commercials where the moms are in their late 20s and their kids are half their age.
At any rate, I was walking around the mall the other day, THANKING GOD that I don't have to deal with the junior's department if I don't want to. Now I can wear all that older lady crap. Being hot and trendy and stylish is just too much work, you know? Throwing on a zip up and looking mom-ish doesn't seem so bad.
So here I am, looking mom-ish. Like, oh! There's mom playing Wii-sport! Oh, there's mom pouring orange juice! Oh, there's mom mopping the floor!
Although, if you took a look at our floor in our apartment, you would be very grossed out. Antne complained the other day that he walked into the kitchen bare-foot and stepped on several things. Well, I had replied, that was your first mistake. Always wear shoes in our kitchen. Actually, don't go in our kitchen. Ever.
