[Review] A Chorus Line

Dear Reader, Are you a fan of musicals? I have seen about two dozen musicals live (and a bunch more like Hairspray and Les Misérable on-screen). I have a general appreciation for musicals, but occasionally, one comes along about which I just don’t have anything positive to say (which is rare for me!). The musical... 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 →

Hello Beautiful!

Dear Reader, I’m peacing out of Boston pretty soon for the summer (more here), which is causing me early onset nostalgia for this city that is, hands down, just gorge. I’m usually a fan of words, but today, I’m going to show you rather than tell you why this Boston is lit af. So, without... Continue Reading →

An Ode to Coffee

Dear Reader, Today, I learned what an “ode” is. Simply put, it’s a poem glorifying a person, place or thing. Unlike limericks, haikus, and other rigorously constructed verse, odes can be more free form — rhyming or not, structured or not, etc.. Because I was facing writer’s block with another project, I have distracted myself... 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 →

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 →
