Dear Younger Me

Dear Younger Me, You're focused on a lot of things right now, like your next Disneyland trip, Hanson, figure skating, karate, visitations with dad, and Sailor Moon. I know you're dealing with some really messed up things at home. If I could go back in time and give you this letter, this is what I… Continue reading Dear Younger Me

Go Ahead, Just Live

January 30th is not my favorite day. It's a bit odd to think that it's been 3 years since my mom died. A lot of things have happened in the last three years; I became a published author, got back onstage, found myself in a serious relationship, started working from home, and moving forward with… Continue reading Go Ahead, Just Live

I wanted to see how they dealt with the bad days, how they… Continue reading Why Stuart Scott’s Death Matters to Me

I went to the doctor since not only did I not get my normal cycle for four months, and I… Continue reading The Mentality of Being Sick

Responsibility

Well, first of all: Shame on me. It's been 5 months since I've updated this blog. But I'm happy that it's still getting a ton of traffic for my Shakespeare posts (now I know what the audience really wants). Anyway, now to catch you all up to my life as I know it thus far.… Continue reading Responsibility
