The Jewel Tone Mafia

This is a topic I’ve really, really wanted to write about for a long time. I finally got the inspiration (as well as the extremely clever term being used as a title) after talking to a fellow actress at the UPTAS who shared the same feelings I did. For those of who who may not […]

Been a While

​I bet you all thought I was dead. Sadly for you, I’m still kicking around and have decided to stop being lazy and finally write something.  Now, I can’t remember the exact date that I last wrote a blog post (I know I could look it up, but I guess I haven’t completely kicked my […]

Peeping Tom

​Story time. So the other day I was working at my job in times square (in the rain, fun). Now for this job, I have to be engaging, outgoing and fun, three states of being that I have never managed to attain at the same time (not taking into account the fact that i have […]

Adventures in North Carolina

​I’m back! So, last weekend I went to the Outdoor Theatre Combined Auditions in North Carolina. Apart from having to wake up at 3am to make sure I got to the airport early in case something went wrong (I’m paranoid like that), I had a nice time and a good trip. My hotel room wasn’t […]

This word immediately conjured up images of actresses such as Zooey […]

Creatively Bankrupt

I’m a struggling actor. This makes me what you woull financially challenged or, if you’re not one to mince words, poor. While I am getting a bit of help from The Parents for rent, I’m working two jobs to make enough cash to eat and have some life, however modest. Most importantly, in order not […]

Parallel Jobs

Happy December!!! So, I’ve been working more hours at both my survival jobs lately in order to make that all important Christmas money. While both of these jobs are similar in that they both require me to overcome my social awkwardness, I want to mention the settings of both. For one, I’m in an enclosed […]
