Snippets From My Week

After Dan and I treated ourselves to a Thanksgiving Dinner of vegan rueben sandwiches and onion rings (hey last year it was a bottle of wine and take out pizza on a beach… you do know we are classy, don’t you?) I saw these vegan bagels at Bloomers and couldn’t not pick one up. I mean, that is the softest, doughiest bagel I have ever seen. Look at that sucker! I bought whipped cream…

Where My Life Is A Mess. And Where It Isn’t (Thinking Out Loud)

If there’s anything I want my blog to say, it is that life is a mess.  I mean if you’ve been following me, you knoowwww I’m a hot mess 92% of the time.   It’s impossible to eliminate. In fact when we try to?… things end up way more of a mess than before. Believe me, I’ve been there numerous times.  As many things as there…

Pushing Past Insecurities: Career, Relationships, Life

My Dad just texted me. He congratulated me on my day of auditions yesterday. Then he told me a quote he recently came across…   “To succeed in life you need three things: A wishbone A backbone  And a funny bone.” Reba McEntire   Yesterday I had a day off  work, but as I explained here, a day off from “work,” isn’t actually a day off. It means a day for…

Life Rambles and Recent Little Things: How to Balance Time, Work and Life Goals

  Hi friends,   I miss writing. I miss navigating my life and unraveling my thoughts through words and pictures that relate comfort.    Life rambles    I’ve been busy and feel like I don’t have time for a lot of the little things I like/want to do.  On one hand this is positive because I’m busy – or trying to be busy – putting more time into my…

Week In Review: Time At Home

Hi lovely friends, Last week, to relive all the good feelings, I recapped my brother’s wedding. I didn’t have a chance to talk much more about my time at home, though. I don’t want to let the visit go by without documenting some of the life-giving accomplishments that were had during this time, so I’m using this week’s Week In Review to go back and relive some…

A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

Levels of Stimulation: Where Is Your Sweet Spot?

Mmmmm how bout THAT for a titlating title, huh!? Don’t worry, we’re keeping things PG here on the spoon. Just doing some thinking out loud.      So the other week I was going into a coffeeshop to spend an hour or so doing some writing, as I often do. I’ve mentioned many times that coffee shops are my happy place. They are where I get the most done and…

A Day In The Life: My First Job (What I Ate Wednesday)

I have two jobs.  One, is my “joe job.” It is the one that, at the moment, is there to pay the bills. Thankfully, I love it. I host and serve at my all time favorite vegan restaurant. The people are glorious, its always crazy busy and the food is….so good.  But my first job, is my life as an actor. Even when it is not paying me money, I see this…

How Hitting Rock Bottom May Be A Catalyst For Change

Yesterday (Tuesday)… was the worst. Like, one of those days that, as it is happening, you file into your top ten collection of worst days…ever.  I got on the wrong transit route not once, but twice. After having a driver miss my stop, then running four blocks, then having to take a taxi in a panic so I wouldn’t be late for an audition. Then riding the transit for two…

Hard Decisions, (Crappy) Job Luck and Typical Life Timing

I’m doing some classic Thinking Out Loud today to catch ya’ll up on a couple things.  First up…   Jobs.   Do you remember last summer my fiasco with the business I was working for, and how they went under and didn’t pay me? Yeah, well to catch you up on that….. I still haven’t been paid. I’ve been partnered with a claims officer for the entire…
