It’s been awhile. Seems like I’m always starting posts with that sentence, hm? I do apologize for my inconsistent posting this semester. I’ve not been feeling quite myself. Usually I’m bursting with words and ideas and creativity, so much so that it’s hard to turn even half those ideas into realities. Yet this semester I have felt very empty – I feel like I’ve lost my creativity, words fly from my mind before I can put them on paper, none of my ideas are worth pursuing. It’s been so incredibly frustrating, I just want to feel like me again! I honestly don’t know what the fix is or if there even is one, but I need that creativity, that excitement, that magic back. I’ll let you know when I find it again…
Outfit Details: Vintage Pendleton skirt, Old Navy tank, gifted scarf
An actual outfit post?! *Gasp* what is happening? I haven’t been taking outfit photos anywhere near as often as usual for the past few weeks, in part due to being busy with Comedy of Errors. It’s also been cold, I’ve been feeling uninspired, and my body image isn’t fantastic right now. But I finally took a few shots today of my rather typical autumn/winter attire. The sweater is from Street Scene Vintage and scarf from Modcloth, paired with shorts, tights, and my favorite combat boots.
As for the title of today’s post, I’ve been listening to a lot of music on Bandcamp and Soundcloud of late. The Intermission Project’s EP Sorry has been on replay for the past few days, and the lyric is from their title song. You can listen to their music on Soundcloud or buy the EP on Bandcamp.
Tonight is the final performance of Western Kentucky University’s production of The Comedy of Errors. This has been such a wonderful show to work on as it’s the first time I’ve done a full Shakespeare play. It’s been a nice challenge to make sense of and memorize verse. Not to mention how much I adore my cast. We’ve taken up some odd traditions during the run, such as pre-show workouts! If you’re in town, come see the last show tonight at 8pm in Russell Miller Theatre!

It’s been a long time. First I couldn’t access my account, then last week was far too busy and stressful to attempt to post, but I am back for the time being. Life just has very odd timing.
I’m not quite sure what to even put in this post. It’s been a very long couple of weeks. Last week was especially difficult, what with balancing tech week and performances for The Frog Prince, the beginning of tech for The Comedy of Errors, and lots of tests and due dates in my classes. This week is calm in comparison, which is surprising as The Comedy of Errors opens this Thursday!
Besides shows and classes I am at that point where I need some big project or calling to latch onto. I’ve had a serious case of wanderlust the past week, in part because all my friends are in Europe right now! In fact, you can follow my friend Adela’s adventures here. Other friends have been doing some beautiful modeling work of late and I am now dying to have a photoshoot. Still other friends are moving onward and upward with their careers post-university, moving to big cities, booking shows. So incredibly happy for them all but it leaves me wanting more. Not that I could handle more in reality. I’m a busy bee and grateful for all the events in my life at present…I just need something new to pursue, I think. We’ll see if I find an outlet…
In the meantime, I open Comedy this week, then it is on to directing scenes, developing proposals for the New Works Festival in the Spring, Curtains (I’ll be playing Bambi come late February), juries, final projects, and deciding how to spend my winter break. Torn between going to LA for the first time or returning to NYC. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
