commit or quit

I always used to tell my dad before an audition for a show that I had to “go big or go home.” I couldn’t approach it half-way or with the mindset of “I’m just going for an extra." I wanted to give it my all and see what happened, rather than be unprepared or mediocre. If I wasn’t going to be ready or completely invested, I’d rather not try or do it at all. (There are flaws to this theory, but I do think there’s a lot to say about ‘all or nothing.’)

No number of #adulting posts really makes you an adult, so guess we should give up on that. But really - we’re all just trying recipes in an attempt to meal prep without getting sick of what we cooked (or we’re eating desk salads), trying to be social even if we’re tired, trying to juggle with long-distance friendships, and grapple with the notion that key phases of life have ended, and it’s on us to make the most of the working world and what we make of ourselves within it.

101 in 1001

As everyone who knows me knows: I’m a big believer in to-do lists. And I’m a big believer in “one day, I’d love to…” daydreaming. But it sure is easy for the “one day…” to turn into “someday…” that just might get lost in the shuffle. It's a challenge to take on for the next 2.75 years - and I can't wait to start!

happy there are Octobers

I think when the humidity broke and summer tourists fled, the city gave one large, collective “sigh,” grabbed a hot coffee and headed out on a long Sunday walk. A least, that’s what I did. I mosied to church, around Central Park and eventually made my way home.

While this little blog is mostly a creative outlet for me and a fun way to share what I'm up to with friends near and far, there may be some of you out there I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting or seen in a bit. Here are some fun facts.
