California Dreaming

Ever since I was little my dream and life goal has been to be a famous actress. I have lived all my life in California and have always been active in local theater groups because my passion for acting is real - but I never made it big. Now I am well over forty and understand that the big breakthrough probably won't come - something that would have destroyed the 20-year-old version of me.

However, I see things differently now and am instead very grateful for all the amazing experiences I have behind me and ahead of me. To be involved in small, local productions probably suits me better anyway and with all the experience I have gathered over the years, I am starting to take on producing roles as well.

I am a high school teacher, educating teens in English and Literature. I am going to use this blog to talk about acting and producing plays, but also about dreams, how to work towards them and about embracing how they change over the years. Happiness is always the number one goal.

Staying inspired

24 Jan 2020

We all have bad days (and weeks). I have just struggled through a period of not feeling motivated enough. Stress is definitely one of the reasons, because I have taken on so much working full time and also trying to run this theater project. I LOVE my job and I LOVE my project, but this time of year I always pass through this stage of stress and... well I guess you could say the blues. 

Happy to say that the energy and appetite is back. I do thank Youtube gurus for a push in the right direction :D!

New project launching

11 Dec 2019

Me and some other local theater enthusiasts in town have decided to set up a play that will involve not just ourselves, but also youth from age 15 and up. We just decided on what play, so feeling well excited! We also decided on a show date and we are cleared to use a local cinema stage for both rehearsal and show. We want a lot of time for preparation and rehearsal to keep quality high. Premiere will be late June (midsummer). Keep posted!
