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…

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…

Eats From the Week and Adding Calories

I missed out on WIAW this week. It’s been a busy week with many late evenings out of the house. But there’s been some good eats, so I’m using this Friday to recap some of the goodness that’s been keeping my belly happy. I’ve been adding extra calories, since I, you know, officially made that a thing and all.  I can’t…

Current Thoughts On Food and Working Out

  So I started back to working out this week.  Well, ok, I was never completely not going to the gym.  I was still going, on occasion, over the last number of months, but my visits were so unfocused. Most of them were just walks on the treadmill or bikes on the stationary bike as a means to read my scripts or let my mind wander.  I would do some occasional all…

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…

An Intentional Day: What I Ate Wednesday

Some days… just need to be a little more intentional than others. By intentional I mean… Monday was a super hard, gross day. I just woke up so anxious. Soo anxious. A crawling-out-of-your-skin-everything-feels-uncomfortable type of anxious. I ended up leaving my house after trying to sit for 10 minutes at the breakfast table because I just had that feeling of “I need to get out of here.” &nbsp…

Taking Care of Your Body: What I Ate Wednesday

Disclaimer: As much as this following post is going to seem like a pity party, it actually isn’t.  I feel grounded and am just choosing to write out some factual realities that I am feeling.  I threw out my back. Even though I’ve lived nearly my entire life with some sort of back pain/discomfort – thanks, genetics – and even though I’ve been suffering from a disabling locked&nbsp…
