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
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.
I am writing this from bed on Day 9 of self-isolation (because I'm smart). I hope you're doing well. I think the days inside are starting to get to me. Before the pandemic it was starting to feel like I was getting my shit together. I was carving out the beginnings of a career in … Continue reading Self-Isolation Thoughts
The Quest for Constant Contentment
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. The three months I spent in Quebec as part of a student exchange in eleventh grade. The three years I … Continue reading The Quest for Constant Contentment
Thoughts on Honesty
I never really considered myself an honest person. I've been thinking about the traits I was proud of when I was younger. The ability to lie convincingly and without shame was one of them. Obviously, it isn't exactly something someone should be proud of, but I was a good liar and it protected me. So yes, I … Continue reading Thoughts on Honesty
Mental Health Awareness
Apparently it was Mental Health Awareness Day last week and I completely missed it. Oops. But I'm gonna touch on that topic now instead and I don't think anyone will be too mad at me because it's not like it's restricted to just one day anyway. The thing is, I've been pretty lucky in regards … Continue reading Mental Health Awareness
I have a new schedule. Now that I have my licence and a car, I drive my brother to school in the mornings when he's over at my dad's with us. This is good. It keeps me from working into the early hours like I used to. I forgot how much I like having mornings. … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
A Week Without My Laptop
Well, this was not how I planned to start off my year. Apologies for my temporary and abrupt leave. My laptop broke. It's four years old and over the past year gradually lost all it's little stubby legs one by one, and I forgot this when I put it on a surface which had a … Continue reading A Week Without My Laptop
As a retail worker, the holiday season means I have less and less time for, well, anything. My mornings, when I have them, are spent in the gym or in my bed. Fifty-fifty. Then work, and then an hour to get home where I'll sometimes write on the train, and once I get home I basically … Continue reading Holidays
