Sorry for the late upload again! My YouTube account was acting up, but I finally got it to work!

This week, I don’t get lost, but instead I’m late getting to Rockville for an audition for MC’s production of Twelfth Night. I’m not exactly the greatest when it comes to transportation. I should really get my license.

Update: I did get a callback!

"Only 19, but my mind is older." 

My name is Patricia Isabel Pablo. My parents call me Trish, my siblings call me Ate, my family calls me Patis, my friends call me Patty, but it doesn't really matter what you call me right now because in 10-15 years when I'm accepting my Oscar, everyone will know my name. I'm a 2nd-year, full-time student at Montgomery College. I'm a Theatre major who one day aspires to become an author, screenwriter, cinematographer, and director, but some days all I want to do with the rest of my life is play video games for a living. 

To paraphrase and totally butcher the beautiful words of Gertrude Stein, the Philippines is my country and America is my home (and vice versa, honestly). I was born and raised in the Philippines, but I've been living in the United States for the past eight years. I've moved around several times since, but Montgomery County is where my heart and cheap rent currently resides. Yes, I can speak more than one language. 

I'm a strong, passionate, confident woman, so don't let my being only 5"1 fool you. I'm an intersectional feminist, activist, and Gryffindor, and I never stop fighting for the things I believe in. Most of my nights consist of me simultaneously binge-watching a show I've already seen on Netflix and furiously writing overzealous, empowered essays on civil rights for my own leisure. Education is extremely important to me, not just in a classroom setting, so I often keep an open mind to everything. Despite my introverted activities and tendencies, I still find the time to go out with my best friends and experience new things. I am the love child of Alexander Hamilton and Angelica Schuyler in personality, but when it comes to looks, I am 50% Philippa Soo and 50% Renée Elise Goldsberry. 

I am best at Harry Potter & Buffy the Vampire Slayer trivia, baking cheesecakes, and flawlessly applying makeup in a moving vehicle. I imagine my life as a series of musical numbers, and you will often find me talking/singing/dancing to myself if you catch me off-guard on my own. Writing is my one true passion in life, and I write like I need it to survive. My life revolves around books, theatre, and musicals, and the best parts of my life are lived behind a camera lens. 

Feel free to say hello to me if you see me around on campus (I have multi-coloured hair, so I'm easy to spot), but don't always expect a full-blown conversation with me as I'm either heading home/to class or listening to the Dangerous Woman album or a Harry Potter audiobook. One of my goals in life is to allow other people to view life from my eyes through my art, and I hope that I can momentarily achieve that through my vlogs. I'll see you around! Don't forget to be awesome!

  1. Hey Patty, sorry to hear you missed the first round of auditions, but overall, it seems to have worked in your favor….closer to home AND a call back. Fingers crossed – I have positive vibes. That aside, however, the effort you went through to get to campus on time and then still miss the audition after using hours of your day really highlights what many of our students go through on a daily basis to make it to class! You have to appreciate their dedication! I am not sure a car is any better honestly! That used to be the case, but a 30 minute drive can become a 2 hour drive in this area when there is a mishap. Keep me posted!

    1. Thanks, Jane! I do enjoy public transportation and the easy access to it, but this is just one of the disadvantages to it. Definitely won’t stop me from using it, though!
