Do We Have to Choose Between Love and Passion?

Everything in life has to balance. Well, I don’t know if it does but that’s what they say; balanced diet! This is a topic that seems to blow up when I’m in school. Drama school specifically, and I think it’s because people feel the need to choose between life and work. One is chosen and …

What I’ve Learned From Being Poor (My story after high school)

This is something that has been very difficult for me to open up about, but something I’ve wanted to write about for a very long time. And not because I’m embarrassed. Not at all. But because I don’t like receiving sympathy. I hate it. I’m not sure I could tell you exactly why. I think …

When You Feel Like You’ve Had an Unproductive Day

You look at the clock. It’s 5pm. It’s already 5?! Shit. I’ve. Done. Nothing. You know those days? Those days where it feels like you’ve done absolutely nothing and deem yourself a failure at life. Because you just watched YouTube videos for 3 hours straight. Or stared deep into the wall, willing Ryan Gosling to …

Why You Should Take a Gap Year

Ironic, because I was thrown into taking a gap year kicking and screaming. It was actually the end of the world. But there was something I didn’t know back then, and it was that taking a year off from school might be beneficial for me. The idea of a “break” didn’t seem okay at all. …

What Drama School is Really Like

It’s hell. Just kidding. Kind of. I get asked about what I study a lot. “Drama” is so vague and “university” doesn’t even make it in the description. Seriously, this is not university. So here, I’ll make it a bit clearer as to how a normal day goes at Drama Centre London. I always feel …

Is it THE Dream or is it YOUR Dream?

Is that what you really want? Is that what you want to do this most? Well, that’s the dream, isn’t it? Or is it? Just because “everyone” wants to be a movie star or win the lottery doesn’t mean you have to. So many time we use the dream as an excuse to reason why …

What I’m Frightened of the Most

I know not being successful is part of it but I’m not so sure it’s failure. Maybe it’s a fear of not being happy. That’s probably it. Fear of the dark. When someone asks you what you’re scared of, more likely than not, we say something like spiders or sharks. Maybe butterflies. I don’t know. …

My Biggest Insecurities

We all have them, whether they’re big, small, physical or not—they’re there. I may not have the same insecurities as you, but they are insecurities all the same. The funny thing is, most of our imperfections are only noticed by us. I’m always so surprised by what other people tell me they are insecure about, …

I Had a Dream

You’re probably already chanting the beginning of “I HAVE A DREAM.” Ha ha, jokes. But really, I did have dream last night. Yeah, I know, this is no miracle. We all have dreams. I’ve got this weird thing with dreams where I feel like I need to find the meaning of them. Like why did …

What I’ve Gained From Living in a Foreign Country

So far, I’ve lived in 5 states and 3 different countries, including the United States. The first time I left Alaska, I was 14 and moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. The idea of it leaving an ice box for paradise had sent me over the moon, but starting fresh wasn’t full of sunshine and butterflies. Even …
