I have grown more determined than ever to make it.
I mean, I'm twenty years old, for Christ's sake.
By the time I graduate, I will be almost twenty-three.

I am simply itching to act again.
And I won't lie, it was The Dark Knight that lit this fire currently under my ass.
Before you say anything, it's not stupid that I feel this way.
When I started taking acting seriously, I began to look at everything very carefully.
I can very rarely get lost in movie plots and just live in that moment.
I am critiquing. I am studying. I am constantly learning.
I spent a good portion of Heath Ledger's time on screen with my mouth ajar, bewitched by his acting.
It pains me a bit to know that not everyone will (or can) truly and fully appreciate just how fucking talented he was in this role.

Also, I may have totally gotten a girl-boner for Christian Bale.
And as usual protocol with my girl-boner inspiring crush-types, for the following weeks, I watch nearly every work they have been a part of and dissect them, hoping that they actually deserve to be where they are.
I must admit, often times they do not.
However, Christian Bale is simply incredible.
If you look only at his Bruce Wayne/Batman, you might beg to differ-NOT because he lacks talent, but because you have yet to see his range.
For example, American Psycho.
Not to jam this down your throat or anything, but this is one of the most intense monologues I have ever seen...

I'm going to stop there.
It's past three in the morning, I have work tomorrow and I leave for NYC very, very early Saturday morning. And I've yet to pack.
I guess in closing, I need to figure out how to get to Los Angeles.

I had the opportunity about 2 years ago to move to LA and live with my ex-girlfriend. We were serious about moving out, found a place to live in North Hollywood and were even discussing wallpaper patterns and furniture arrangements. But then something fell through and I swear, to this day I regret not moving out there when I had the chance to.
He was very good in American Psycho.
And Heath's performance was just epic.
I try my best to keep the mentality that you only live once, so just go for it. I wish you the best of luck in pursuing acting!
I agree with EVERYTHING you said, and I wish you the best of luck. <3
Good for you!!! Go act and be awesome.
