It’s been a while. I got busy, but I’m still here.
I’m sorry I haven’t written in a minute, but as you can probably guess from the title, I’ve been occupied. In January, I was lucky enough to start a new job. My first permanent full-time job, and in the middle of a recession no less (although, it seems there’s a recession every year, so perhaps that isn’t as notable a fact as it looks). I’m not going to talk about the job in too much detail here, but I really like it and I feel very lucky and privileged to have it.
In my last post, I mentioned that there were two people in the world whose loss I didn’t think I could handle. Now one of them has COVID.
I wanted to call this “A Summary of Every Film-Related Thing Happening in My Life in the Last Six Months” because that’s a more descriptive and enticing title, but it’s a bit long. Similar to the quite-long title of a movie I’m in called “Events Transpiring Before, During, And After A High School Basketball Game” which is coming out soon. Here’s the trailer:
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?
Super Roommates began filming on Friday the 13th of March. It was amidst a snowstorm, and there was an accident on Deerfoot, so I arrived on set after pretty much all my cast & crew, but our location still wasn’t available to us until fifteen minutes after our call time so it wasn’t bad. Yet.
Life has become mundane.
I had an epiphany last week. I was thinking about the times in my life I was happiest—not moments, but weeks. Months. Years. And they’re really easy for me to identify.
Way back in December, I got cast in my first union role as Kelli in Ming’s Dynasty. I got to be on set for two days for this project and it was so much fun! The project itself is also super funny and creative.
I’ve had a busy weekend.
First of all, you should know I got a job. It’s a part-time thing and it came in the nick of time, according to my bank account. I don’t know what this means for the acting thing.
I was going to quit acting in November.
Well, I was supposed to quit this time last year.
