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 →

It’s All About the Benjamins

Dear Reader, Every two-to-three years, iPhone users return to the Apple Store for an upgrade. In my last post (more here) at the end, I went on a tangent about my dissatisfaction with the quality of the photos captured on my iPhone (which, by the way, I resolved by deep cleaning the camera lens). Because... Continue Reading →

ABBA is Awesome

Dear Reader, Do you have a favorite song or artist? For many, this answer is easy — you probably have a handful of favorite songs or bands or solo artists. For me, favorites when it comes to music has always been a struggle. Growing up, car-ride entertainment did not come from a radio but a... 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 →

Young at Heart, Discerning in Mind

Dear Reader, Dating, both online and in person, is an adventure. Years ago, before my very first relationship when I was in the “dating game,” so to speak, I remember feeling my emotions rise and fall like a wooden roller coaster. I would get so anxious about stupid things — should I message immediately or... Continue Reading →

Matchmaker, Matchmaker

Dear Reader, Would you ever hire a matchmaker to find the love of your life? With the ubiquity of free dating apps out there and because I am a cheap person — No, no I would not pay for a matchmaker. However, through my own impulsivity, I briefly became a part of an executive matchmaking... Continue Reading →

Shouldn’t You be Studying?

Dear Reader, This is going to sound lame, but do you like to study? As a school girl, I never enjoyed the process of studying. As a child very keen on meeting expectations (I’m an “Upholder,” more here), preparing for a pass/ fail situation was always stressful. Furthermore, unlike a set of math problems or...
