Links, stories, entertainment, and other various things I enjoyed this week: The full Hollywood Reporter "Drama Queens" roundtable has been released. And if you, like me, are a TV/acting nerd, you'll really enjoy it. Could Vancouver host the 2022 Winter Olympics? Probably not. But this likely isn't the last we're going to hear on the… Continue reading Of the Week
My apologies, loyal readers*, I have not abandoned you. I've been back in Vancouver for nearly two weeks and, somehow, I've had barely any spare time. Between the job hunt, catching up with friends, and helping out on set, I've hardly had two spare seconds to rub together (not to mention discovering Tinder, playing in… Continue reading I’m Back!
Mere hours off the plane, I'm decked out in fancy rain boots, sporting zero makeup, and trudging through the rain to dine at the Na'am. Vancouver, never change. Leaving L.A. was extremely bittersweet. I'll write more about it in the coming days, I'm sure, when I've had more time to reflect. Saying goodbye to Hayley… Continue reading Back in the Homeland
While what's going on in Russia is obviously a terrible, no-good, really bad thing, I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge how well the rest of the world is responding. Keep in mind that en masse, Internet-wide LBGTQ(IA*) support is a new thing. I think we (we, of course, being a relative term, meant… Continue reading Of the Week
While it may appear that all I've been doing in Los Angeles is playing, I did in fact come here to get some work done. Some network! Get it? Work... network! #sorrynotsorry Anyway, I've had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people here and will soon be compiling all the advice they have given me into… Continue reading Writing days & movie nights
National flags made of their country's traditional food. Exactly what it sounds like. And super cute. (Online) dating in "No Fun City*" aka Vancouver. A few well written stories. All the places Canadians can get holiday/work visas. Whaaat? We have so many options! Anna Kendrick is the bestest; and the writer of this ad deserves an… Continue reading Of Last Week
This is what, I believe, the kids calls "#nofilter". I've been in Los Angeles for nearly 20 days. (Say what!?) And today I miss Vancouver. The fresh air. The rain. The short distances between boroughs. It's a god damn beautiful city and sometimes I have to leave for awhile to remember that. If you live… Continue reading Today is a grey day in L.A. (but Day 9 wasn’t).
Comme il faut: everything as it should be. Venice Beach Well, Los Angeles, it’s already been 10 full days. Where did the time go? I’m writing this from a table on the street outside an adorable little cafe on Tujunga called Aroma. Its interior holds a display case of desserts so decadent, cakes and tarts… Continue reading Comme il faut; (or, do I really want to live in Los Angeles?)
Two thousand and thirteen has come and gone. And what I year it was. I was extremely blessed last year to spend eleven and a half months in school studying writing for film and television. Storytelling has been a passion my entire life, but, as they say, the path is not straight. There are times when… Continue reading 2013 in Review
