    First Time Donor :)

    Finally! After having this on my list of things to do the moment I turned 18, I can finally cross it off. It was also on my list of 30 things to do before I am 30, so two birds with one stone 🙂 It was something I have always wanted to do, but it also really terrified me. You see, my dad used to give blood all the time with no problem pretty much every time he was allowed, whereas my mom can’t fill up a bag and has passed out. I wasn’t sure which one I would take after. In the end, I filled my bag, didn’t faint…

    I’m a Writer!!!

    Perhaps the title is misleading, because I have spent so much time telling you about all of the writing I have been doing, with the Nano challenges, and I have actually been writing stories ever since I learnt how to write. But this time I actually got credited as a writer. Co-writer to be specific, on a short where I came up with my own interview questions. The entire experience has been amazing so far, from the day we filmed, this credit, the short being accepted at a festival, and me getting to work on another project with the creator…I was really lucky to end up on their team 🙂…

    Filming in Cornwall :)

    One thing that slightly worries me, but that I also love about my acting career is that I generally don’t audition for the parts I get. That might sound awesome, and it is, but I also don’t get the parts I do audition for. Once, they even wrote a part just for me after I auditioned for another part. I obviously can’t complain. Today I want to share about a short I should be doing at the end of September, and a role I drove to Cornwall for this weekend. The short I was offered after having an amazing time doing a quick scene for a film competition back in…

    Websites and Background

    If you are reading this post on my website, then all of these changes are why it has taken me so long to post. If you are reading it in an email, come over and see what I’m talking about 🙂 I went through nearly every theme available to me and tried a million different things before launching at 85%.I think I am good with it now, but if you come back and everything has changed…well, that might happen… I am going to condense what has been going on, since a lot of my time has been spent hiking, learning lines, recreating my entire online profile and learning about new…

    Quebec City and A Table Read

    I just spent a lovely weekend in Quebec City, celebrating some birthdays, eating at fancy restaurants and taking in the historic views. On Saturday we walked around the city, even scaling some hills to get better views, before spending Sunday morning exploring a canyon that housed a waterfall. It wasn’t the hike we were expecting, and there were a lot of stairs, but it was absolutely beautiful. I also wowed with my slightly more than non-existent skills on the monkey bars. I promised to keep working on my upper body strength so I can do the whole thing next year 😉 Yesterday, in addition to working on some scenes and…

    Wraps, Plans and Webinars

    After a slightly emotional last day on set, I am now wrapped for Un Jour En Societe. In my head I thought it would be the easiest of my filming days, because it didn’t involve any lines, so no memorization. Instead, I had to keep walking as people catcalled me, and eventually crumble into bed basically defeated. That shows me to no longer think things will be easy just because I don’t have to learn anything. All in all though, it was a really interesting experience, and I absolutely cannot wait to see the finished product! On Tuesday, I started taking care of business before going to class. I signed…

    Job Offers and Catching Up

    When I wrote my last post, I was on my way to film my second day on a French film called Un Jour En Societe. The location was about an hour an a half from where I live, at a pub that basically let us take over. My character is a waitress/ barmaid, so I pretty much hung out behind the bar all day, sometimes saying lines and interacting with other actors, but sometimes just standing there and trying to look like I belonged. They didn’t close the pub while we were there, so every once in a while, a real customer would come by with an order, and I…

    Sur le plateau :)

    Since I had promised a while ago to write lots of short posts instead of cramming everything into a single one, I thought I would give you a little update before heading out again. First of all, there is a short I did a few months ago, Sasha: Portrait of An Artist, that has been selected for the San Antonio Laughs Film Fest. Huge congrats to the entire team 🙂 Second, I was on set Monday. A French set. Where I had to have a heated argument and talk fast in a language that I don’t normally do that in. I told you I would share how it went and…I…

    Brunch…Two days in a row

    In addition to all of the lists I frequently post on here, of things I want to do this year, this week, this month or in the next 5 years, I also have a list on my computer. It is sort of like a bucket list, but there are also a bunch of items that are just things I would like to do or try, like eating a red velvet cupcake, which I got to cross off years ago when I was in L.A. After watching Sex and The City, getting dressed up and going for brunch in the city was definitely something that I wanted to do, but I…

    Sets and Scenes

    Sometimes, I feel like absolutely nothing is going on for me career-wise, and then I look at my schedule and realize I have something every single day. That is what has happened to me since my last post. If this trend could keep up for the rest of the summer, and my life, that would be amazing 🙂 I spent two days on a French production pretending to be a high school student, which showed me that no matter how young people (including myself) still think I am, I am way older than actual high school students. Not that I have all the answers or have all these life experiences,…
