Tomorrow is the last day to submit for the Canadian Film Centre's Actors Conservatory. Soon, we 2022-23 CFC Actors will have our showcase, and the 2023-24 actors will be chosen and this whole experience will be pretty much over for me, leaving my life irrevocably changed in its wake. Back in September, someone asked me … Continue reading Success.
I Finished An Acting Conservatory
This post was written in March 2023. I graduated this week. As with every other time I ever graduated from something, graduation brought with it excitement and pride, but also grief and fear. Looking back at the last six months, I am ridiculously proud of myself. The conservatory was a challenge which helped me grow … Continue reading I Finished An Acting Conservatory
I Moved To Toronto
It's one thing to be invited to the Canadian Film Centre (CFC), it's another thing to actually go. This is Part 2! Read the first post here: I Got Into An Acting Conservatory. When I was accepted into CFC, I had an apartment, a full-time job, and a chronically anxious chihuahua. Going to Toronto meant … Continue reading I Moved To Toronto
I Got Into An Acting Conservatory
Hello. It's been a while. I should probably update you and write about how completely my life has changed in a very short amount of time. I'll keep this as short as I can, but who are we kidding. I'm wordy. Back in May, I happened across an Instagram post on the CFC's (Canadian Film … Continue reading I Got Into An Acting Conservatory
An April Snowstorm
9am. No snow. Skipper goes out for her first pee of the day with no jacket. Success. I'm proud of us both. Noon. Maybe an inch wherever it isn't just melting. Skipper asks me to go out (a win), I notice (another win), and she pees outside while wearing a thin coat. There's enough snow … Continue reading An April Snowstorm
Thinking of Bones
Of all the things this Russian-Ukrainian war makes me think about, I did not expect the catacombs of Paris to be one of them. And yet, now that they're in my head, it makes perfect sense. Almost six years ago, I visited those catacombs and wrote this, which perfectly conveys what I'm starting to feel … Continue reading Thinking of Bones
It's not that I'm forgetting to write, and it's not that I have nothing to write about. It's that anytime I'm not at work or in a class, then I'm walking the pup or filming an audition or editing my novel or going over finances. And if I'm not doing that, then I'm exhausted, and … Continue reading Chihuahuas
I forgot to post this last week
I'm a precarious writer and these are precarious times. September's just around the corner and although I barely notice the seasons passing anymore, this turn of season does come with some decisions that I need to make. I love my job. Even when I get groan-worthy assignments, I feel so lucky to have it. The … Continue reading I forgot to post this last week
ADHD: A little about too much.
What a day I've had. I know it's been a while, and I'd like to say it's because I've been busy—which is true, I have been busy—but I know that's no excuse because I started this blog as a university student and wrote posts daily through uni classes, running clubs, a part time job, writing … Continue reading ADHD: A little about too much.
Life Updates: I’m Still Here
It's been a while. I got busy, but I'm still here. https://youtu.be/ZcLxtLRs2YY
