My dad came to visit me in New York, and like every artistic kid who has business-minded parents, we never really agree on much. We have different opinions on basically everything. Of course, growing up under the regimen of Dictator Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, politics are a reoccurring topic in our conversations. We've argued and discussed anything and everything; the republican and democratic party, liberals and conservatives, and even that one time when the cast of Hamilton read their eloquent letter to Mike Pence when he was in their audience, about their fears and concerns of what it would mean to have Trump be our 45th President.
I am studying at an acting studio in New York City, and I have my acting lessons twice a week with two different teachers: one of them being a middle-aged rugged man who has never really *done* anything in the industry. His teaching methods are very effective, and before every class we have this sort discussion of things happening or art we’ve seen. Let it be said that I had a very high admiration for this teacher, and if not admiration, respect for the knowledge he had of the method.
