Yo Tengo Agua :)

I have water and you should too!!! Drinking water is so good for you! I always thought that drinking water would make you "bigger" because your stomach would be full of it but its actually the opposite. When you don't drink enough water your body thins that you wont have water (as if your in the middle of the desert without water) so your body says "Hey Kayla's not going to have any water so I should hold onto as much as possible to last here through the rest of this desert" So you body holds onto as much water as possible therefore making you bloated or "bigger". When you drink water constantly throughout the day your body has no reason to hold on to water therefore not making you bloated and making you look "thinner". Water has also has many other health benefits. So drink, drink, drink!!!!!!! Educating yourself is going to make everything easier. So please take control and educate yourself on ways to live better and be better. Please follow me the winding road I call "My Road To Success" and we can be better together.

Eat Some, Lose Some

So I've been changing the way I eat and work out because I want to live a long happy life so I'm taking charge now! I've been going to LAFitness everyday for the past week. I go to the Cycling class at 5:30am every Tuesday and Thursday and then I attend classes such as Body Boot Camp, Body Work plus Abs, and Step Aerobics. I've found it easier to work out in a group because it pushes me to my limits, I can't slack off when there are so many people giving their all.

So cycling class kicks my butt!!! I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to get the best leg and core workout in an hour. I leave that class drenched in sweat, it looks like I just left the water aerobics class. Haha. I would recommend taking this class in the morning or just working out in general in the morning. And these are a few reasons why..
-You get it out of the way!!!
-Boost your metabolism
-Dr. Oz says so!! 

Who wants to leave work and think "Ugh Now I have to go workout". If you do it in the morning you get it out of the way and you can start off the day already wide awake and ready to go. Also tons of studies show that working out in the morning boost your metabolism. What this means is your body will burn up what you consume so much faster. The amazing Dr. Oz says the 6:35am is the best time of day to loss weight. Dr. Oz shows an amazing analogy of what working out in the morning can do for you... Check it out: 

So for me I've been cycling in the morning :) Ok so I have to go...I'm going for a swim at LAFitness :) Have an amazing day...please take control of your life and live it to your fullest. Don't let life pass you by......making little changes in life today can point you to a brighter tomorrow! Please hang out with me on "My Road To Success" and we can be better together!!!

I'm Back :)

Hey Everyone, so I took some time off from the blogging world but I'm back. I'm making a lot of changes in life from the way I eat, the way I exercise, to my wardrobe, to auditioning, working on set and more. I want to keep you updated on everything I'm doing and also give you tips to help you live a better life! If you have any questions about anything please ask and I will try my best to answer them :) Please follow me on 'My Road To Success" and we will make these changes together!!

VIDEO FOUR!!!!!!!!

Technical Difficulties uploading here you are :)

So after missing last week I thought I would do a song that I really like. More like Her - Miranda Lambert. I did something a little different this week. I posted the song with and without the guitar. I just wanted to hear the difference and to see if the guitar was helping or hindering my performance. Miranda sings it beautifully; I hope I do it some justice. Been on my feet running crazy lately so hopefully you like it. Please let me know what you think!!!!! Leave comments and suggestions  lol ( you'll understand when you watch the video)

The Breakdown

So I’m going to give you a break down on all the projects I'm working on. I'll keep them in organized sections so that it will be easy for you to follow.

Ok Let's Start...

I've been looking up potential songs for this week :) I have found 2 ok ones but I need to find AMAZING ones. So the search is still on for a song..... It’s spring break this week so I’m at my house in Lantana, FL for the week and I just went back down to Lynn last night to pick up my guitar. Now I can make some magic!!!

Musical Revue-
This is the show I'm directing!!!! Like I said in my last post, this Musical Revue is going to be a showcase of all your favorite Broadway Hits. I emailed the cast on Friday asking them if they accept their role in the showcase. So far I have heard confirmations from Sophia Barrett, Clifford McKinney, Jennifer Morano, Stephanie LoVerde, Katie Welch, Katie Arriola, and Darrick Penny. I am still waiting on confirmations from a few more...Hopeful they come through.
So right now I'm caught in a jam :( I have to find a pianist that would play for FREE and that's really hard to find. I have a potential pianist so I'm trying to gather all the sheet music and get it to her but she's not sure if she can do it yet. It's really hard to get in contact with anyone right now because this week is our Spring Break and everyone is gone, so that puts a little dip in the road. So if ANYONE knows a pianist that is will to play for free, please let me know!!! Thankies

Directing Showcase-
On Wednesday I had callbacks for the Directing Showcase. I found out shortly after that I was playing opposite Marc Castellano (Young Man), as the role of "Girl" in "While the Auto Waits" directed by Karim El Debs. I have heard little about the play and I haven't received a script or a rehearsal schedule, so I waiting to hear about it all.

Vagina Monologues-
The Vagina Monologues is a play written to stop the Violence of Women and to bring awareness to the subject. I've been working on this project since December, I believe. I have rehearsal twice every other week. It's a nice light and easy rehearsal process right now :) I am "Woman 2" in "Introduction", I am in "A 6-year-old Girl Was Asked..." and I’m "Woman H" in "Say It".  

Celebration of the Arts-
Formally known as "The Dance Knight Light", Celebration of the Arts as grown as fast as you can say Dance. It is so much more than dance now; it has singing, musicians and so much more. I auditioned last Tuesday for dance. I auditioned Bollywood, Contemporary, and Pop Jazz. I am waiting to hear which numbers I will be accepted into :) I'll keep you posted. Check out Bianca's blog (the director)

Undergraduate Repertory-
So I have to come up with a 10 minute show just involving me. A One Woman Show!!! I can do singing, dance, monologues, ect. Where do I start??? I've been looking through a couple monologue books but nothing sticks out at me. I do have a couple songs in mind for the show, so I’ll be practicing those. I haven't decided if I want to dance yet. It's would be nice to do because I can do anything I want but also I would have to practice a lot for it. And also I would have to pick a genre; would I do contemporary, tap, jazz, hip-hop, bollywood...the possibilities are endless. I need to find a theme!!!!! I spoke with Carrie and Adam Simpson (my acting professors) about it and they said find the pieces you want to do and a theme will just come. Ugh...will see what I can do.

I just received an email booking me to play the role of "Jessie" in Fragments. Directors Stephanie Williams, Grant Cumbest, and Adam Goldberg are creating a film for their Senior Seminar class and are working very hard on it. I haven't received a script yet all I know about Jessie is what I read off of their blogs.
Straight from Stephanie Williams blog...
Jessie, the 'budding writer': Next up is Jessie, a character that I developed. Jessie has just graduated from college, and is stuck in that awkward phase of being optimistic (perhaps a bit idealistic) about the future while remaining completely insecure and indecisive in the present. Having just graduated from college, Jessie is trying to establish herself as an author, but is at a complete loss as to how to begin living in the real world. To top it all off, she's been struck with a case of writers block! Jessie's episode takes place in a coffee shop as she tries to come up with ideas for her first novel, and features some exciting filmmaking techniques involving changing perspective, time lapse, and use of the steadicam!

So that's everything!!!! I hope you keep updated on my "Road to Success"

Sooooo Much To Do....Sooooo Little Time

Hey Everyone!!! So I feel like I haven’t talked to you in FOREVER :( It's been a week since I posted last and I'm sorry to say I won’t be posting a video this week. I have had so much going on that I was unable to play the guitar as much as I usually do, which resulted in poor guitar playing skills this week. I didn't have time to find a song and rehearse it to performance level.

My life is ALWAYS busy and that's how I like it but this past week it has gone over-board. For the next couple of months I will be running off of very little sleep. In addition to playing the guitar for 3-4 hours a day, I am an RA (love it!!) at Lynn University and that is a full time job in itself. I work in the Campus Recreation department at Lynn and also I am the Chair of the Women's Center Advisory Board. Then I just recently started working again at the Palm Beach Zoo as a waitress. Oh ya and I almost forgot. A little thing called College Classes and homework!!!!

And now I am involved in 6 acting projects at my school all at the same time. The Vagina Monologues, Directing Showcase, Celebration of the Arts, Undergraduate Repertory, Fragments, and Musical Revue. On Monday I had an audition for the Directing Showcase. Tuesday had Celebration of the Arts dance auditions. Wednesday I had callbacks for the Directing Showcase and also held auditions for the show I'm running. I'm also working on the Vagina Monologues and I just received the role as Jessie in Stephanie William, Adam Goldberg, and Grant Cumbest’s Senior Seminar film “Fragments”. And on top of all that I was just ask to be apart of the Undergraduate Repertory, which means I have to make a 10 minute show of just me.

Ok now let me catch my breath....

Sooo I'm directing my first show ever!!!!! :) I'm directing a Musical Revue at Lynn University which is showcased on March 23rd at 7:30pm. We held our open auditions on Wednesday and Thursday and casted the show on Friday. I'm really excited for this project. Before becoming a Drama major I only ever did musicals; in high school and at church. Lynn University has never produced a musical and this is the closes I'm getting to one for now. So if I wasn't going to get a musical, I thought I'd make one. The Musical Revue Knight Light is a medley of Broadway songs from you're favorite shows. We will sing some of the classics and also introduce you to songs you've never heard of.

So for the next 2 1/2 weeks I will be directing our Musical Revue Knight Light. And for the next couple of months I will be completely consumed in theatre, film, and music. :) Sounds like what I want the rest of my life to sound like!!!!

So what first started out to be a blog about learning to play the guitar is now growing into a blog involving everything entertainment. I will still continue learning the guitar and posting videos along the way but I will also be informing you on everything entertainment involving me. , updates on all my shows and the rehearsal process and videos of it all. I will post videos of potential songs, dances, and monologues and I will be asking your advice on everything!!!

So continue to watch the rollercoaster event entitled “Kayla’s Road to Success
