Quarantine makes everything more exciting.
Back at in September, I won a free “do-anything-you-want-with-your-hair” from a salon. Suggestions included a cut and dye, but I’m an actor and I prefer for my hair to remain its natural colour, so instead, in late October, I went and got a perm.
In the midst of our quarantine, a spider appeared. The minutes following will forever be known as the funniest ten minutes I’ve ever caught on video.
I met him at a cat café. I’d only been to it a couple of times, usually not as long as I’d like. This time, however, I had the time.
The Calgary Stampede was cancelled this year due to covid-19 so I unearthed footage from the last time I went to the Stampede and edited it into a video.
Back in November I attended my first feature film premiere for a film I did back in 2017. The film still isn’t out yet, but who cares about that when you can see what I wore on the red carpet instead?
For those of you who are unaware, today is Canada Day. Some of my best memories have been on this date, including camping with family, my first time going up the Calgary Tower as a kid, getting to choose a new book at the bookstore, seeing fireworks with my first boyfriend, exploring celebrations downtown with my siblings, and on and on. It’s a day that brings Canadians out to celebrate together, and makes me feel proud of the beautiful country I am fortunate to call home and connected with the rest of my fellow Canadians.
The second of my quarantine vlogs, one month into isolating from the pandemic.
Video editing is such a particular kind of work. There’s no hiding from it, and I kind of like that.
When everything changes, you have to keep going anyway. That’s what we’re learning from these last few months, I think. It’s what I’m trying to apply to my novel, too.
