wedding season and the opposite of things

It’s officially wedding season! Both my husband’s and my cousins all decided to get married this year, and we’re pretty excited about it (one is in Croatia). If you’ve ever planned a wedding, you know just how stressful the time leading up to it, and the day itself, can be. But if all we have […]

embracing my inner child

To be honest, I’ve been feeling a bit all over the place lately. Excited about opportunity one moment…completely overwhelmed and defeated the next. For as much as I try to live in the present, I’m a worry-wart at heart: an endless planner, a list checker, a goal seeker. In the midst of all of that, I […]

the solution is simple

We live in a digital world, that’s for sure. And though I love the speed and convenience of technology, I often find myself grasping for those mediums of the past – handwritten letters, dropping off a roll of film to be developed, picking up physical books from the library. There’s a slowness in these efforts […]

life hacks

Here are a few of the easiest things that have made my life infinitely more enjoyable. 1. How to instantly look put together and feel confident: lipstick. If you have time for nothing else, lipstick automatically makes you look fancy and tricks people into thinking you made an effort to look presentable. Joke’s on them! P.S. I […]

new things

I kind of let my birthday slide this year without any musings/goals/life lessons shared, and while that is OK (and I had the loveliest weekend to ring it in), old habits die hard. Forewarning: if you’re not a fan of lists, this blog is not for you. Because you guessed it, I got another one coming […]

You may have noticed some changes around here. For one, I now own my site name (no Word Press in the web address either). I also have a brand new layout, and I’m loving it. Fresh, but still simple and easy to navigate. I’m still making some tweaks here and there, but right now I’m […]

life as of late

Man, it’s been a while. Still trying to figure out that work-life balance thing. March was a busy month for me – what with spending the entirety of my days editing, shooting footage, and recording voiceover for a big video project at work, as well as attending a slew of casting workshops in the evenings and on […]

the architect

I’m pretty sure certain I’ve spoken numerous times about the contradiction that is my brain and the anxiety that courses through it and my efforts to battle/live through/survive it. I even took a personality test, not once, but twice (because how could this be true??), and came out with this personality: Architect: INTJ-T, which apparently only […]

balance

I struggle with finding balance. To me, it’s usually an all or nothing thing. I either have to binge watch Netflix all day or cross off my to-dos like a maniac. I go from attending casting director workshops and submitting for projects and emailing industry contacts and reading Backstage articles to taking a step back and relaxing and […]
