I don't review books, tv shows, or films anymore because I hate saying bad things about them, but I still want to share some great finds. So, after a year which has allowed me to consume more art than usual, I have come up with a list of my favourites. Books: I did not read … Continue reading Ivy’s 2020 Recommendations
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. ...and it's out now! If you're in Canada, you can watch … Continue reading Ming’s Dynasty
Theatre or Film?
When people find out I'm an actor, often the first question they ask is "Film or theatre?" I've always answered film because that's been what I wanted to do since I first wanted to act, and more recently screen acting is the only kind I do. But like many actors, I got my start in … Continue reading Theatre or Film?
Faves: January 2017
To be honest, the way my year has started has been probably one of the worst starts to a year I can remember. Sorry I keep disappearing. I quit my job this week and it took a lot out of me. Something about not having a regular like that, no job or school and not … Continue reading Faves: January 2017
Just because I'm busy all the time doesn't mean I don't still enjoy stuff. Here are this month's weeklies (because let's face it, these only ever happen every month anymore). Music: The perfect way to start off these 21st Weeklies is with a song from Twenty One Pilots, their most famous, Stressed Out. Suitable for a lot … Continue reading (#21) Weeklies
My Commentary on Supergirl
The following won't contain any huge spoilers, as in, nothing you won't have already guessed if you've seen the trailer or the first episode of any superhero-type of tv show ever. Still, if you get annoyed at any spoilers at all, just watch the show first. I watched the pilot of Supergirl and the entire … Continue reading My Commentary on Supergirl
I completely forgot Weeklies even existed. The last time I did one was way back in June. Oops. Anyway, I spent the weekend job hunting so I didn't have any one thing to write a post about. Thus, I have revived Weeklies where I can talk about a bunch of little things in a post. … Continue reading (#18) Weeklies
Having a break from school leaves a lot of room for...well, everything else! That plus the fact that I didn't have wifi for last week's Weeklies means I have a lot lined up for this one. Shall we begin? Food: Chinese takeout. So convenient for lazy days, and it will literally last you days. Film: As … Continue reading (#15) Weeklies
Okay, so let's do this. Film The Devil Wears Prada: Not as bad as imdb says it is. It passes the Blechdel test right away and focuses on a character who works hard to get where she is instead of having things handed to her. Not to mention there's the whole theme of staying true … Continue reading (#14) Weeklies
Fresh Off The Boat
It is that time of semester again. All my assignments except for one are due within the next two weeks. My past three days have been completely packed. I've been busy and I will be busy for a little while longer. That's why I've been blogging less. Hopefully things will go back to normal around … Continue reading Fresh Off The Boat
