The Blooper Reel (Part 2)

Dear Reader, Some bloopers look pretty fake, but I assure you, all the mistakes that I made while filming my web series “Pretty… If You Squint” airing on Youtube fall 2022 were all 100% due to my own genuine failures (#authentic lol). In part one of this post (here), I began to list some of... Continue Reading →

The Blooper Reel (Part 1)

Dear Reader, Plenty of mistakes were made in the making of my web series “Pretty… If You Squint” (more here). It has been fun (and a lot of work) making the web series of comedic shorts (to be released on the Pretty… If You Squint YouTube channel fall 2022) and I find my series of... Continue Reading →

We Walked Into the Night

Dear Reader, There’s something magical about the night. As a child, it was rare that I would ever go out at nighttime. When we did go out in the late hours, it always turned out to be an event. For example, those Harry Potter book release parties taking place in the hours before midnight were... Continue Reading →

Hit or Miss

Dear Reader, Do you enjoy chucking weapons at a wall? You do?? Well, then, ax throwing may just be the new fun sport for you. First — axe throwing… or is it ax throwing? According to Merriam-Webster, both spellings are correct but the version with the -e at the end is more common (in the... Continue Reading →

The Night Is Eternally Young

Dear Reader, There’s no place like college, and by college, I mean, the live-eat-sleep together experience. These past few days, I was fortunate enough to travel to Reykjavik, Iceland for a research program of sorts. During the week, we slept in shared rooms, ate some meals together, attended the same talks, walked to campus side-by-side,... Continue Reading →

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. Not too long ago, I posted about hitting 100 barre fitness classes (more here). Along with... Continue Reading →
