A Girl’s Day

Dear Reader, I’ve never been a girly-girl, but due to a confluence of circumstances, I became one for a day. I’m sure we’ve all read and seen the books and movies where the rich female character occupies herself with shopping trips and pampering. I’m not a wealthy woman and my day of shopping and beauty...

A Tale of Three Short Films

Dear Reader, Student short films are a mixed bag of nuts. As a budding actress, I often apply for small volunteer gigs, so I can gain more experience (but also because I just love acting). Through these gigs, I have also found that some of these projects turn out to be much more work than... Continue Reading →

Sometimes We Fail

Dear Reader Sometimes things go poorly, and by “poorly,” I mean, really eff-ing badly. As you know, I’m a part-time actress (more here & here). What you may not know, is that I have gotten ALL of my jobs (short films, commercials, music videos) without ever once needing to attend an in-person audition. Until this... Continue Reading →

Stretch First, Split Later

Dear Reader, I strained a muscle, and now I am seeing the world differently. Hopefully, dear Reader, you have not injured yourself recently (or like ever), however, when you do, it can really change things both physically and mentally.

Because... Continue Reading →

Life is But a Dream

Dear Reader, Have you ever seen a sight so beautiful that it feels like you are in a dream? I felt passionately about my dreams as a kid. In fact, when I was in late elementary school/ early middle school, I even took to keeping a dream journal (where I basically outlined the dreams I... Continue Reading →

The Breakup Post

Dear Reader, How’s your 2022 going so far? Mine is turning out to be complicated…. First, I tested positive for COVID-19 right after New Year’s in Germany (more here). Then, I had to endure a 7-day isolation in a Ferienwohnung (more here) and seriously alter my travel plans. Finally, and most recently, my boyfriend and I broke up. If... Continue Reading →

The Isolation Diaries

Dear Reader, If you’ve been following along with my blog, you will know that I am writing to you in isolation as I have recently tested positive for COVID-19 (more here and here). While I was lucky to have my health (no more symptoms!), isolation in the two-room, ground-floor apartment in Bavaria, Germany was not... Continue Reading →
