The 100 Day Project: Obstacles

I am over 75% of the way done with the 100 day project. Wow. I knew when I started out that this was going to be a challenge; that I would grow and discover things, but I hadn’t quite anticipated what this whole journey would become. One of the things that I am learning aboutContinue reading “The 100 Day Project: Obstacles”

Saying, “No, thanks!”

My biggest career goal right now is to find theatrical representation. Don’t get me wrong, I have other goals and projects I am working on. I’m not waiting around, as if theatrical representation is the answer to all my problems… BUT I also know it’s a big step in the right direction! A couple monthsContinue reading “Saying, “No, thanks!””

Working Hard

Maybe you’ve noticed. Maybe you haven’t. I haven’t written that many blogs this year. Last spring I was writing one every week. Then I went through a period last Fall where I felt like I didn’t have much to say. In the last few months I have had much to say, but too much goingContinue reading “Working Hard”

For the Love!

I’ve been thinking a lot since writing my blog, About Quitting. I can’t tell you how helpful this honesty has been. It’s initiated several important conversations and I thank each of you who have responded with encouragement and insight into this time of my life. I think one of the biggest things I realized inContinue reading “For the Love!”

We figured out we had both moved to LA about theContinue reading “Celebrating Successes!”

Celebrating Failures!

Last week I wrote about getting over my fear of failure so that I could live life to the fullest! One of the steps in doing that is celebrating both my successes AND my failures. A couple months ago, a friend of mine and I went to an audition together. As we were leaving, sheContinue reading “Celebrating Failures!”

Get Over Yourself!

There is no such thing as absolute perfection, so get over yourself! I think we can all agree that we humans aren’t perfect. Especially when it came to auditions, I used to worry if I was the “best” or if I was “perfect for the part.” However, I’ve found this to be a useless exercise.Continue reading “Get Over Yourself!”

Own it! (Part 1)

If it follows you wherever you go, just embrace it! (…or call the police!) The first time I acted in a full length play, it was Shakespeare and I was ten years old. From that point on, I knew I would be an actor. I pursued theatre all through high school and college, graduating withContinue reading “Own it! (Part 1)”
