The NEXT 100 Days of Self-Taping!
Almost three months have passed since I completed The 100 Days of Self-Taping. It’s incredible how quickly one can fall out of a habit once the expectations and accountability fall away. I had high hopes of continuing self-taping, if not every day, at least multiple times a week. But I have to admit that, actingContinue reading “The NEXT 100 Days of Self-Taping!”
The 100 Day Project: Process
Now that The 100 Day Project is over, I know that I have created some excellent habits and carry more knowledge and experience with me moving forward.
The 100 Day Project – 25 Days
I am 25 days in to The 100 Day Project. YAY! I am so glad that I started doing this and am grateful to The Great Discontent for initiating this. They say that it takes 21 days to create a habit.

I am generally wary of fringe theatre. I have all but stopped auditioningContinue reading “5 Factors of Fringe”
How many motivational posters, slogans, and stories have we heard? Never quit. Don’t give up. Just do it. How many times did all those famous people fail before they succeeded? As much as that makes me feel better about my failures it doesn’t make me think I will be so lucky. Not everyone “makes it.”Continue reading “About Quitting”
Have a little Faith
Back in 2008 I lived in Prague, Czech Republic and I was convinced that my destiny was to serve the city through theatre and community involvement. To do this, I interviewed with a faith organization called World Harvest Mission and returned to Seattle to “raise support.” Like with a lot of non-profit endeavors, my nextContinue reading “Have a little Faith”
