Entertainment Industry/breaking into entertainment

Entertainment Industry/breaking into entertainment

Category : Business Post

In March 2012, I found myself facing college graduation with beyond zero idea of what I was going to do with my life. The majority of my friends were either applying to graduate schools or moving to NYC to work in finance. I knew if I forced myself to work in finance, within a week, I'd either a) be fired or b) have a severe mental breakdown. So what did I do instead? The most impulsive thing I could've done - move to Los Angeles to pursue a childhood dream of becoming a professional actor. Five and a half years, countless anxiety attacks, and enough stories to last a lifetime, I'm surprisingly still in LA. And I say surprisingly because I think about leaving this industry, getting a 9-5 job and moving to rural Alaska on a daily basis. Mainly because it's hard, I mean really hard, but I'm too stubborn to quit and I'm determined to make a seemingly impossible dream come true. I'm sharing this with all of you because I've learned a lot along the way - not just about this profession, but determination, rejection, facing your fears, and most importantly, self love. I'm hoping that my failures and lessons can provide you guys with comfort or, at the very least, some laughs.

<p>Starting a day with a sip of coffee is not something strange for coffee lovers.&nbsp; For some people, it is more than a drink, but a life. When people think of coffee, it is more like an energy boost to kick start a day. But during kidney disease, the patients need to follow a restricted diet which means limiting certain types of foods and drinks. <br /><br />Many patients remain confused about the fact that whether they can drink coffee or not and if yes, then how they should prepare it because they are various ways to make coffee. By choosing the different ingredients, a person can choose the nutritional value they are taking because it is a must to keep an eye on nutritional consumption. <br /><br />Research says that drinking a single cup of coffee per day can reduce the risk of kidney disease if a person is otherwise healthy. But, what to do if you have already developed kidney disease?<br /><br />In chronic kidney disease, you have to include drinks that do not have too much sodium, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium as well. Along with that, the quantity of fluid is also considered because the kidneys cannot filter them later on. Such minerals may accumulate themselves in the blood vessels and cause a problem. Phosphorus is also found in additive creamers that are used in the making of a coffee.<br /><br />So we will tell what type of coffee is considered kidney-friendly. <br />First of all, try taking...
