April 21, 1964, Tuesday. Can’t wait until the weekend. Going out with Dave Kendal…
Nothing happened today in school except in Drama. We’re starting a new Drama Club with only ten members. I wasn’t one of the ten and it broke my heart too. But Mr. Lauderville told me I’d be taken in September and I should bring up my grades. I went to Patricia Stevens Modeling School in Pasadena and took a Social test. Than I talked to Mr. Dunnen and Mr. Gentry. They aren’t sure about my sister Donna and I staring the course, because we would have to come on Saturday’s from 10:00 to 3:00. That would take all day and I’m not sure I want to make a commitment like that. Plus drive an hour each way. We started our first class and we loved it. I also got an interview with Mr. Louis the acting director in three weeks. Plus, we’re going on some modeling jobs in a few weeks. But, that means giving up Saffron meetings for a while.
I just couldn’t connect with anything but Drama in High School. In fact it took me until 2001 to finally complete my Bachelors Degree in Psychology I graduated from Vanguard University at 54 years of age, the same week my daughter Georgia graduated from College with the same degree. Would you call me a Late Bloomer?
