"I really LOVED learning about the musicians' daily lives, because they really gave me a view as to what I should expect if I am going/would like to have the same career as them. I also LOVED learned about their health tips, as it is something I have been pondering over for quite a while. So... now that I know what to do/consider, I can follow through with those health tips and, hopefully, change the way I am living now so that I be healthy for the rest of my life! And, lastly, I LOVED learning about their college/high school experiences, as it gave me a perspective of what things/activities I should be doing now in order for me to take the appropriate steps needed to reach my goals. I want to remember that, when it comes to auditions, I should go in feeling confident. I should also go in feel myself. I shouldn't let the pressure/want of being a SPECIFIC character get to me... as it could hinder my performance. Additionally, if I don't get cast, I should just walk out saying, "Hey! You know, what? That was a good audition. I'm HAPPY."
