A lot of things in the entertainment industry are very cyclical; holiday shoots are done in the summer, TV castings are often late winter, etc. The modeling industry gets very quiet after Thanksgiving, but every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas Break I am running around like crazy for auditions! Some days I had multiple auditions, and three or four appointments in one day, especially if there are callbacks and self-tapes due on top of my usual lessons. This coincides with the busiest time of the year in Manhattan, when thousands of tourists come, taxis are full, traffic is everywhere.
We were very lucky that the weather was nice this December because we quickly realized that it was often quicker to walk to all of our appointments so that we would not be late. One day I checked the pedometer on my watch and we had walked 5 1/2 miles! Just another busy season in NYC!
