I only write this because since I've gotten to grad school, I look back at my years in the business and I'm disgusted with the mindset that so many of us actors carry which is "I'm entitled to it" or "Eventually the art and work will come to me, I mean, don't they know who I am?" or "How could that not be great? I spent at least 30 minutes on it!" . The truth is it will do everything in its power to stay away from us. Everything. We must never give it a reason to not believe in us.
