One thing all young adults really struggle with is to figure things out on their own. I am 100% guilty of this. So many times this year I have called my parents freaking out over certain things, and they have always responded with "Figure it out. You are an adult now."
I am terrible at this, and they end up helping me anyway. The few times I have tried to "Figure it out" I made the situation so much worse. So they minus well help me from the beginning.
One time... now I am not proud of this in anyway.. I decided to figure this out on my own and I said yes to two different projects, both filming on the same day, and figured "Well one of them I won't get, so whats the worst that can happen?" How about booking both projects. Then having to call one of them to say "Hey... so I can't film tomorrow... Sorry for accepting." Calling my manager on that one was not fun, and boy did my mother yell that day. Thats why I don't figure things out on my own anymore. I mean, at least I know how to pay my rent and sign up for classes. That should count for something.
