Should Restaurant Menus Include Calorie Counts? (Thinking Out Loud)

Before I get in to today’s discussion, I’d like to thank Marina over at A Dancer’s Live-It for so kindly having me on her “Warrior Woman Series” yesterday. I’m honored to have been featured alongside so many women who I, myself, look up to with admiration. Marina is doing such a wonderful thing with this series by putting real stories out there. I encourage you to check it…

Thinking Out Loud: Change Feels Weird

Guys. It feels weird.   Yesterday I briefly spoke about how, right now, I’m feeling good. Happy, and at peace.  I still stand by this. In fact yesterday was another really lovely day. That being said, this “feeling good” comes simultaneously with a sense of also feeling really…. weird.  Especially last week, when I was just learning my new schedule and was trying to formulate some sense of routine, there were…

Thinking Out Loud: End of Summer Anxiety and Flying Away

Hi friends, It’s been forever since I’ve come here with a traditional, uncensored mind-dump, but I think this week especially could really use a good unloading of mind junk. So – I’m taking advantage of Amanda’s weekly link up and doing some major Thinking Out Loud.  First on the radar: Anxiety My anxiety has been pretty through the roof this week.  On monday I mentioned…

Creating a Life You Don’t Want to Run Away From

Many people spend their lives running.  And no, not the marathon kind. We spend so much time and energy running away from who we really are, what we really feel and what we really want to do. We distract ourselves with our iPhones the instant we have a moment of open space. We keep ourselves busy busy busy in order to avoid too much quiet time where our thoughts can get the better of us…

The Fear of Making a Mistake

I am constantly learning. Learning and re-learning. Sometimes when I’ve learned something new, I think I have just had the most profound, life changing revaluation. But then, only a mere few days later, I find this new revelation has lost all its sparkle and no longer feels like truth at all. Major womp.  Same goes for my needs. At one moment I can think I need a certain something from someone, to only find a…

What I Learned While Packing: Embrace The Mess

As you saw from Monday’s epic post, last week was a big one. I packed up and moved out of my apartment.  There was a lot of sweat, and a lot of mess.  Throughout the week – and which came as a pleasant surprise –  I came to embrace this mess more and more each day. I have no idea where you stand on the “clean obsession” scale, so you may not…

A Few Simple Words

The week before last, I had my wallet stolen (or lost? …who can ever be sure). This was the second time this happened in three months. I had just taken out cash, so yeah, in addition to everything else, I lost 100+ dollars.  I have no idea what happened, and I’m not going to spend any more time trying to rationalize it or retrace my steps. And I’m not going to spend any more…

Life, Coffee and Fatalism

A few new things have happened recently. This is my attempt to stream some of my thoughts together.   Dan and I broke up a couple of weeks ago. Actually, it was on Valentines Day. Yeah, how cliche is that? Believe me, it was neither of our intentions for it to happen this way. There was a conversation that needed to happen, though it was atleast my expectation to let the little holiday pass before delving…

Mind Dump: Rhyme Zone

It’s been a while since my last rhyme, I thought that it was time To loosen up my pencil grip and let some verses chime Sometimes ‘prose’ just will not do, to get your thoughts out loud Especially when your brain is kind of chillin’ on a cloud Life is pretty smooth right now, I’m doing what I love My corset, heels and skirt are tough, but give my boobs a shove Not sure if it…

Thinking Out Loud: Taking a Look Back

Gah. This truly is going to be some thinking out loud.  Spontaneous vulnerability makes my fingers shake. The other day I began thinking of my upcoming summer and how I should spend it. You see, I actually have what one would consider a “summer,” as my theatre conservatory gets put on hold until September.  So although I could be involved in other acting projects, I do not have a main job keeping me in place. As I got…
