Last night, when we were stopped for food after the Hall & Oates concert (which was amazing, by the way), I checked my email on my phone.
I got an email from someone from Kanye West’s tour, and they asked me if I would be available tonight to do makeup for his 20 backup dancers. I was in complete shock for about 20 minutes, then I was crazy excited and giddy. I mean, I had just been talking about how I’d love to do makeup for album covers and music videos!
Her email had been sent at about 9:30, and it was now 1:30. I immediately responded and said I would be available, and to call me in the morning.
About ten minutes ago, I called to see what was up, having expected to have heard from her. She told me that they already booked someone.
What a huge disappointment for me! Gotta be honest, I cried a little bit. Looks like I have to send my emails to push notifications on my phone.
Could use some cheering up, especially since now I have to move out of my apartment and am exhausted from being too excited to sleep last night.
P.S. I promise, I won’t let this keep me down too long. I know it is a big deal that they even asked me, and that it’s only the beginning of a very successful career. I hope to have many more opportunities come my way, and soon!
