Post-Class Ramblings

It’s past midnight and I’m home from class. I’m starving but I don’t want pizza, so I’m making the only thing any single gal who hasn’t been grocery shopping in over three weeks can make: Pasta! Plain, no tomato sauce, pasta! Mmmmm!

Finally finished all my grant writing today for both Evolution Theatre and my upcoming Roller Derby show. It is such a huge relief to have that off my shoulders. I can now fully focus on Birth and my class with Michele Lonsdale Smith from Vancouver.

I feel so blessed and grateful to be taking this class. I’m not just learning about acting, I’m learning to be a better human being. I wish everyone could see, feel, learn what I learn in these classes. I’ve been studying with her for almost four years now and I know that I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for those classes. If you are in the Ottawa area and are interested in auditing a class, here’s the event info, including how you can apply to audit.

I’m going to be working on a scene from Doubt with an absolutely lovely partner and I know we’re going to have a lot of fun with it. I do, however, still need to find an outfit. I’m currently looking for a long black skirt, black shoes and a habit headpiece. Please message me below if you can help!

I am happy. I am exactly where I know I should be right now and for the first time ever I’m not scared to do the work. I’m actually thrilled to do it!

My heart is filled with so much love for everyone. If you are reading this, I love you very much and, even if we haven’t met, I think you are beautiful and strong. You can accomplish everything you put your mind to. The only thing standing in your way is you.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, my water is boiling.



  1. This is the best, most so-needed theatre post I’ve read in a long time. Thanks for that.

    Good luck with Doubt. You know she just did that play as her debut for our big Regional here, eh? That’s a pretty big compliment, I think…
