Easy does it

Ok so now that i’ve found my groove with writing I’m not really feeling like stopping just yet. Fuck me, this always happens. I actually started writing just after I put the tub on.   So a few things that I have places to improve In my acting class there is a guy that i once upon a time did a scene with. And it went great!!! UNTIL that is, he abruptly left… Read More

Ego ergo

Friends i’m not going to lie i’m having a hard time figuring out exactly how i am going to be able to share the story i’m about to tell you because wll, it kind of makes me look a little pathetic. This week in class Igot my butt HANDED to me. HANDED! My teacher told me I was acting like a victim and what’s more that i enjoyed being a victim and everyone.. Read More

Time Will Tell

Im reading a book by Deepak Chopra right now and in particular a chapter on emotions. In order to figure out the best course of action, it suggets we write down our conflicting thoughts, what we followed through on and what the outcome was. Outcome? how can we know the outcome until years later when we realize- shit i should have done better on those tests in school to have more opportunities, or.. Read More

It has been an extremely weird and wonderful week my friends. Monday ih ad an audtion which seemed to go quite well. they immediately didn’t want me for the role I thought i was going to be- a nurse- so they were considering me for other roles.

Getting over self doubt

Hey guys So when we last left off I was working on getting specific. Lots happened since then I will get into it.

Getting specific part 2

So after reviewing some of my earlier posts i realize that I an maybe see a pattern of unspecificty even in my writing! truthfully the posts I wrote initially sounded like more of an actress than mine do now. I may not be getting auditions at the moment, but I wasn’t then either! I didn’t even have an agent! So what has changed. I have stopped caring about connecting to an actor community.. Read More

Amendment: doing BETTER work

I had a couple kick in the pants moments this week remindng me to buckle down and really focus on doing the best work i can with the work i am doing at the moment. Not in being the best person I can be at this stage of my life, but in doing good, noble work. And this is uncomfortable too. At work, in health, in play. Prioritizing what we need- time ,space,  etc… Read More

Hard work
