My family expects me to become a successful actress, but I just want to be in love

July 6, 1964, Monday. The Beatles movie, Hard Day’s Night was released today…Mrs. Launderville may not let us go to the audition at MGM.

Went to school to practice the scene from Our Town, with Mike. Mrs. Launderville was very upset, because we were so bad. She said she may cancel us out. We went to Mike’s house and rehearsed until 4:00, until it was pretty good. After rehearsal I went shopping for something sweet to wear to the audition. We found something at “Taffy’s.” I had to have it taken in. I didn’t like it too much. I think we’ll go out again tomorrow and look. Practiced for Mom and Dad. Even sang for them. They had tears in their eyes. Daddy has a friend in the Studio, who is going to check in and see how I did on my interview. They expect so much from this. I know it’s important to them, even more than it is to me, but they wouldn’t understand that.

My family believed I had the talent to be a professional singer and actress in 1964.  I wish I had been more motivated. I was more interested in getting the perfect boyfriend.  That would always sabotage my chances of success.
