Bear with me

Sorry for being so crabby for the past few months. Coming out of it slowly. I just need more rest and some tlc.

You seriously need to get over yourself. You're MUCH too narcissistic. Remember... you're a regional actor. That doesn't mean you're good. You're sub par at best. Move to New York and make it there... then you can walk around like your shit don't smell. Till then... grow the fuck up.

Nice. I like the idea and I appreciate the sentiment. Do you even know me in real life?

And as an FYI, I always remember that I'm a regional actor. I'm proud of that. And um...what other kind of actor is there?

Also, I'm keenly aware that there are tons of people out there in my profession that are WAY better than I am (I work with some of them, as a matter of fact) and I think that's a good thing.

"Sub-Par" is subjective and is also an opinion and I fully support your right to have one.

Are you a critic? Because if you are... then I don't take you seriously anyway.

And lastly, of course I'm narcissistic! I'm an actor.

Of course I'm narcissistic! I'm Human.

Just like you.

Thanks for calling. Next time sign your name.

Get over YOURself.

All NYC gave me was an anxiety disorder and bad credit.

Love, (another proud and working regional actor)

it's pretty damn obvious this person doesn't know you in person nor could they have ever seen you act to write such a ridiculous statement...only someone with way too much time on their hands and a serious attitude problem would ever say such a for being narcissitic?! this is your blog, if they aren't your thoughts and feelings about your life, who the hell should your writings be about? i say slough it off like water off a duck...apparently your hard work and immense contribution to the philly(as well as elsewhere) theatre scene is only able to be elevated if you go to new york (which i am confident to say that if you ever did feel inclined to head there- you would rock the apple) to which i say bullshit, anonymous...not everyone wants to go to new york. new york is not the end all and be all. only a very narrow minded person would measure someone else's success with such ludicrous terms. actors act be it new york, regional, community theatre, it's all valid and fantastic! and the few productions i was priveledged to see you in, ahren, were made ultimately better with your performances. hope you're well despite this delusional person's negativity.
