Week In Review: A New Chapter Begins

  Well. It has come and it has gone. This last week marked my last week at the theatre school. The official end of three years.  Three. Years.    I closed out my shows after a second very successful week of runs. The shows kept getting better and better and were wonderfully received.  A Flea In Her Ear – George Feydeau Following the final show we had our graduation ceremony and awards night.  I shared the…

Week In Review: Updates from a Puddy Brain

Like last week, blog posts just aren’t flowing these days. I have much I could say. Many things, many thoughts, many transitions, many changes going on…. yet I’m having trouble grasping them all into a cohesive blog post. Anyone else find when they have more going on it is actually hardest to write? Or maybe this is part of a transition I’m finding myself currently in. Whatever the case, its…

Cora… You Need To Stop.

I need to stop.  I need to slow down.  I need to stop pushing myself; putting so much pressure on myself.  I’m running myself to the ground in the effort to eliminate space.  I’m filling every gap of time with Emails Screens Scrolling Clicking Submitting So much friggen scrolling and clicking. I’m not looking out, I’m only ever looking down. I’m running at full speed Ramped…

Bravery Is A Muscle: Week In Review

Bravery is a muscle.  Muscles are not only bulging biceps, twitching delts or popping calves built at the gym… we have emotional and mental muscles, too. And, like those muscles in the gym, they must be worked consistently if we want them to exist. These mental muscles however – in my opinion – can be some of the most challenging to work.   Sorry. Gross picture. But I had to.   Different people find different things…

Soften: It Is Fear That Paralyzes Us

Soften. I’ve had this word on repeat over the past week or so.  Not “breathe” Not “relax” Not even “release.” But… soften.  It seems to work in a completely different way than the rest. Like an authority figure that immediately gets your respect and attention. My body understands it.  If you’ve been reading recently I think you’ll know that I&#8217…

Perseverance: The Diary of an Actor Going After Her Dreams

  I feel like I may need to rename my blog, “The diary of a struggling actor going after her dreams.” As I now transition away from training mode – which is the only phase you all have ever known me – into the real world, my life is going to revolve around auditions, hope, prep, rejections, auditions, hope, prep, rejections. This blog of mine may very well serve to document the life of an…

Mind-Body Connection and Finding the Hidden Reasons for Anxiety: Week In Review

One of the things I like most about Meg’s Week In Review, is how it forces/encourages us to break down our…lives, in a sense…into one week periods. Each weekend I look back on the previous 7 days… only the previous 7 days… and assess what they felt like. How I felt, what I did, how I was affected and therefore, what I am learning.  I don’t…

Week In Review: What Is Feeling Good

For this week’s Week In Review, I’m documenting the things that seem to be feeling good right now. A retake on my “What’s Working” post. Achievements of any kind always feel good, hence why this weekly link up always feels good, but last week there were a few extra shifts which seem to be fitting a pretty nice groove.  Go visit Meg for all the list-loving-self-gratifying celebrations Doing…

Week In Review: Mood Struggles and Help From Family

Hi guys,  Last week my parents, my brother, and my sister-in-law came to Toronto to attend my performances. It meant so much having them here and being able to show them what all my hard work has been for… and to just show them what I love to do.  The shows went really well, and hanging out with my family has been so wonderful. However I still had a really tough week. I…

Is It Dangerous To Dream? (Thinking Out Loud)

Last week, I had an audition for the Stratford Festival. You may recall that this is my dream. Being an actor at this festival is the absolute, ultimate, biggest dream I have.  It was something to even be granted an audition, as this in of itself is a competitive area of decision. I was proud and so excited to even be given the chance to be seen.    The two weeks leading up…
