I remember being in high school and thinking that joining SAG was just about the coolest thing anyone could do.

The other day I got a letter in the mail that said if I didn't join in two weeks, I could never work for SAG again.

Paying that initial joining fee -- my wallet would say that it was not, in fact, the coolest thing I've ever done.

All kidding aside, I am overjoyed to finally be able to join this community. It finally feels real to me. What a wonderful next step.

AND I can't wait to get my screeners this winter. [:
