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.

Struggling, in that the situations where I would normally have connected, personal, philosophical, and existential discussions have run dry. Even though I know I have plenty to discuss,Continue reading “Nothing to talk about”

Post #3 – I recorded a podcast!

I just did something I never thought I would do, and recorded a podcast episode with the lovely, inspiring human: Rebecca Reinhart. She has a podcast called The Unintentional Porn Star, she’s incredible, and I’m so happy I get to work with her on an ongoing basis!

Post #2 – Consistency, consistency, constancy

Something I have always struggled with is consistency. Building lasting habits and follow-through in my life. Whether it comes to exercise, writing, or self-care, it seems that every time, my self-discipline lasts for a week, a month if I’m lucky, before everything falls of the rails once more and I’m thrown back to square one.Continue reading “Post #2 – Consistency, consistency, constancy”
