Life in Act-uality

Tales of an aspiring actor/adult


I’ve had a few too many interesting experiences today to not come to the page.Nothing is not synchronicious in this world. Today i happened to run into an old friend. Old friend is running a marathon. She looks fantastic and happy and there’s no reason for me to be jealous. I find myself very close to choosing thoughts  like ” oh and here i am buying a big bag of candy -way to go.. Read More

guns a blazing

SO. I have a few drafts I haven’t yet sent.. so I will try and get to those and send them your way, but i noticed something. I was about to write a sketch for my class and i was feeling like I’m in the groove. Oh yeah, there’s that sweet spot. BUT instead of actually writing, I was like well hang on i gotta do all this other stuff- all of which.. Read More

I suppose it’s premature to call it a strange end to the year but this week ( dec 21 to be exact) i had the most horrible audition. Logistically it was my last day of work before christmas holidays and the audition was RIGHT in the middle of the show, right at our MOST prized guest of the week. My hosts where both dolls of course ( trying to be extra nice to.. Read More


Well friends tonight i did a beautiful yoga session on resistance. Resisting where you are at right now… resisting the tension in our bodies etc. Andi t was a really good reminder of the basics to getting present- not needing it all figured out, not needing it to look a certain way just needing to allow it. IMust have realsed something off my chest because i was a bundle of tears. I’ve had.. Read More


Hey friends What happened this week? This is the question my acting teacher asks every week. AND I NEVER say anything. Maybe it’s because it’s usually ” oh i booked something” and my story would be ” i MAY-BE went on an audition this week , but kinda not really.” But i think its actually fear. Fear that the things that ARE going on aren’t worth me talking about, or just show that.. Read More

The tide is high

Yes my friends it is miserable dreary season here in Vancouver and the rivers are high as can be. But what exactly is happening here? Seems like the seasons come and go but how much change do we allow ourselves? This is my connudrum this week as I am repeatedly confronted with situations requiring me to be a more grown up version of myself, or accept the changing currents of who I could.. Read More

Sick over Thanksgiving

Hey friends So this week has been pretty heavy on the – things to do, people to see- front. After work I’ve been meeting up with my scene partner or meeting up with yvette to talk about the upcoming short we’re producing, plus of course the two classes i’m doing.

Gonna be quick on this one So this weekend i was going to tape a side project of mine, that i have kind of had on the back burner while I lament not having any auditions, and think about how much i hate creepy yoga guy. SO needless to say i didn’t do and the universe has been telling me ” hey you better wake up and get to it” all weekend. SO.. Read More

boo -ya

So today while avoiding memorizing my scene I came across news that my  old neighbour just had a baby! AHH so exciting. But ok, so  if I’m being honeset, I am so jealous of her older sister and her family I can’t stand it and I got sucked down this hate spiral of seeing her one post on my friends wall, in like  a 12 min facebook journey of: Wow look how photogenic..

Allowing for the room to GROW

So last week I wrote the following neurotic post which ” I was back in class today. ( editors note: a new class) Argh. I got stopped and started a million times.  I was breathing funny and embarassing myself, and it may have ben a self fufilling prophesy ( “oh wait til that guy in class sees that I’m a fraud and my ego is based in nothing grounded in acting “, or..
