What do you want to say to the world?

This was another exercise for my previous life coach – I’ve been looking back through things lately and thought this might be worth sharing. The exercise was, “What do you want to say to the world?” The truth is I’m not sure what I would want to say to the world: there are so manyContinue reading “What do you want to say to the world?”

In an Ideal World

I actually wrote this a while ago, as an exercise for my previous life coach, but I’ve recently been feeling a pretty significant loss of identity – no longer feeling clear on my values or beliefs or what kind of person I want to be (call it a quarter-life crisis) – so I decided toContinue reading “In an Ideal World”

Queer Eye My Life

It’s hard to know where to start because there are so many thoughts in my head. Like scraps of paper, constantly spinning away on a fresh gust of wind. I feel like I have a lot to process, but it’s hard to find an answer when you don’t even know the question. Well, first ofContinue reading “Queer Eye My Life”

New Year, Old Goals

Trigger Warning: for discussion of suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and mental health in this post. It’s that time of year again when resolutions are creeping round the corner. I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions because I find that I never stick to them, and then I just end up feeling like a failure – a feelingContinue reading “New Year, Old Goals”

Theatre, I missed you

So, I had my first in-person audition today since the start of the pandemic and let me just say, it was AMAZING. I loved every minute of it. From stepping inside the auditorium to stepping onto the stage, the whole experience was as surreal as it was wonderful. I don’t think I realized how muchContinue reading “Theatre, I missed you”

I Want

There’s something about saying the words “I want” that I dread every time. It feels selfish and demanding – bratty, even, and I absolutely hate being any of those things. Perhaps it’s the manifestation of ingrained misogyny, or maybe I’m just independent to a fault. Logically, I know it’s healthy to ask for what youContinue reading “I Want”

Troilus and Cressida

“Hard to seem won: but I was won, my lord,” (William Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida, Act III, Scene II, Cressida) Another weekend, another Shakespeare workshop. Or rather, the continuation of last weekend’s workshop. So far, Class BASH’d has been a blast, and I’m super excited to be working on this second, contrasting monologue for today’sContinue reading “Troilus and Cressida”
