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…

Week In Review: Being My Own Manager

Oie. Last week was a busy week.  If you didn’t notice, there was no time last week for me to give over to a blog post, let alone many things. I did not cook once.  I did shower, though.  My life as an actor means I am my own manager. I am my own business. This requires a lot of time and effort and many hours spent. On good weeks, this includes lots of…

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…

Current Foodie Health Stuff: Grass Fed Butter, Supplements and Farmers Market Excitement

I’ve now shared with you what I am currently doing to improve my mental health. I am unplugging more, finding more ways to spend time off a screen and spending more time slowing down. I am reading my novel almost every night before bed, I am leaving my phone behind for near full days and using things like a real paper planner and writing prompts. I have most definitely felt a difference in my anxiety…

How I am Learning to Unplug and Slow Down (Part 2)

In continuation of yesterday’s post… I’d like to share what I have been doing to unplug and slow down. And I do mean practice. This is work. Even after the initial discomforts, it is something that I’ve been needing to consciously put into place. Even schedule and plan. Maybe this is not needed for everyone. But for anyone like me who is sensitive to overstimulation yet finds themself…

Why I Am Practicing Unplugging and Slowing Down (Part One)

  I had much I wanted to say about today’s topic, so I am making this a two-parter. Today I am writing about the anxiety levels I have experienced over the last couple of months and the connection I found it to have with technology. Come back tomorrow when I will continue by listing the ways I have been practicing unplugging and how I am consciously making an effort to decrease my anxiety.  &nbsp…

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…

Let’s Talk About…Food. Recent Foodie Catchup.

How about we mix a little Lately: Kitchen Creations, recent eats and some random foodie rambles together. Mmm? Because as much as I prefer to eat my food, talking about it is can be pretty fun, too.  So let’s talk about… Montreal Bagels! Oh man. I’m officially such a fan. I can’t get enough of their super doughiness (FYI it took me forEVER to…

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…
