Celebration is a vital part of the journey. Celebration marks the journey. Celebration acknowledges the work you’ve done to achieve a win, a moment, a milestone.
I had a wonderful, blessed past week of artistic wins. I was able to share them with everyone in my universe and beyond. I was able to enjoy the inflow that resulted from my outflow. And I was grateful to understand that my wins are a collective. My wins are connected to my friends, peers, colleagues, teachers, classmates, etc. who have helped me get to where I am today.
I want to recap my wins for the past seven days below and how I celebrated. And now that I have celebrated, it is time to move forward with the next step of career administration. I have celebrated, and now it is time to get back in and administrate the next steps for my career.
Here are my wins from the past week and also my celebration of those wins:
**The Doppelganger, a film I wrote, executive produced and co-starred in will play at the AMC Theater this July in Manhattan as part of the Dominican International Film Festival. More film festivals to come!
**A feature film that I am in, Zombie TV, has finally received DISTRIBUTION! It’s a spoof on zombies and reality television. 8 contestants are locked in a house with zombies. The sole survivor at the end of the night wins one million dollars. Does my character win????? Stay tuned!
**I submitted a self-tape monologue to Twinkie Byrd’s Flip The Script monologue competition. The competition was in conjunction with NBC. Out of the 1,200 submissions received, she sent 64 auditions over to NBC. I was one of the 64!
**I was on the set of the SAG web series, The Rejects, playing the role of Kenny. So much fun!
**I had two commercial auditions!
**I had a wonderful meeting with a fellow Vassar graduate about the literary agent world and they gave me so much homework to do!
**I am finishing up my tweaks on the three episodes, the series bible and the season one chart for me new TV series.
I am an artistic warrior!
And here is how I celebrated:
I bought Madonna’s new album, Madame X, on vinyl. (By the way, fun fact: Madonna earned a #1 album with Madame X on the Billboard 200 albums chart and a #1 song, Medellin, on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart today. She extends her record as the artist with the most #1’s at every Billboard chart combined, with 163 number ones!!!!!!!!!!)

You are a warrior. I’ve known a few of you. They have all created monster careers, and they never stop working. I’m full of admiration for your fortitude, and your ability to do what grows your brand in an organized,disciplined way. It takes both mental and emotional strength to not getting side tracked. Congratulations on all fronts. Carole White
