Miss The Bus


First off I would like to delve into how excited I am to do my rendition of Monster. For those of you who may not know what this is let me fill you in: recently I came into possession of Daniel MacIvor's play, Monster. It is a wicked one man show about a kid who kills his father one weekend while his mother is away. It then chronicles the effect it has on the community as well as complete strangers and how they become intertwined. I am planning on performing this play during the summer to help my tuition costs for the upcoming semester. Of course I also need to actually need to be accepted first. I am currently getting all my information together to apply to schools. Namely Ryerson.

The thing is, it is costing a small fortune just to apply then I also have to fly to the auditions which will also cost me. Blahh, the life of students. I know that if I get accepted though I am gonna be like, " yes!"

Which may seem like a normal response but picture me saying it with all the emotion in the world behind it. Applications are my main focus right now, other than keeping up with this. I have also been reading non stop which is also something I am enjoying. Books are nice.

Christmas is really soon. I love Christmas, it is definitely my favorite holiday. I just love the time I get to spend with my family. Under normal circumstance my family and I would hit up the movie theatre on Christmas day, but this year I just wanna not travel as much. I am spending so much time on the road, even though I have no car. Ironic to say the least. So I am stoked to just stay home eat snacks and chill. I'm just super tired.

For those of you who have not seen Black Swan. Go. Now. It is phenomenal. That is all I am going to say. It is few and far apart when movies live up to my expectations and leave me in shock after it's done. Just go. You won't regret it. Natalie Portman is a babe and she is wicked in the part. I hope she wins all she is nominated for.

Anyway I am on my way home on the bus and my battery is dying so alas, I bid you farewell for today.

See ya abyss.

I Now Understand Hiatus


I know this seems to be a reoccurring situation, but I do apologize for the lack of posts. It has been over a month since my last entry and quite a bit has happened. I really want to make one of my New Year Resolutions to post at least weekly, similar to what I stated earlier in these posts. Except I will actually follow through.

I discovered that I can totally post from my iPhone, yet another convenience. So with this new found information I can guarantee at least a post a week. My life may not be that exciting but hopefully you find enjoyment out of my obscene ramblings. Anyway, let's get down to business!

School for winter break ended last Thursday and I miss it already, the term went by quicker than expected and I learned so much. Tue teachers are all stellar human beings and I wish I could just read biographies on all of them. They seem to have been through so many experiences in their lives. Alas, I do not have this option to read about them, instead I have a giant list of plays that needs to be read before January 3rd.

I have made a point to get all my application things done before I head back to school. So that is presently what I am working on. Majority of the schools I am applying to are in Toronto and it is costing me a pretty penny to just apply, this doesn't include the airfare and possible audition fees as well. It is going to probably end up costing me as much as my first term tuition! but I need education, so it will hopefully be worth it if I actually get accepted.

I was recently involved with a couple of things; over the weekend I was in a short film that will continue filming in January as well as a work shop that is in preparation for a provincial tour, I have yet to find out if I will be cast in the tour solely due to the fact that they are casting the female lead(opposite me) from Toronto. So the whole workshop cast is just waiting to hear from the director as to whether will will be going on tour. I would obviously jump at the opportunity to tour and it would give me a credit towards my equity status, which of course is also gladly accepted. I am still working my butt of to get my Equity/ACTRA status before I head off to Toronto.

Also in the works is a show I putting together, Monster by Daniel MacIvor. I have recently obtained his one man show and emailed him about receiving the rights to it so that I can perform it this summer in my hometown and save the money for school so I can avoid student loans as much as possible. I have to unfortunately wait for a response from him until I can really put my plan into action, but I am hoping he will respond soon enough.

That is essentially it in my life at the moment. I am just about to leave for work and will talk to you tomorrow!
