Anyone who knows me knows that I’m basically always doing the most. There’s always something I have to do or want to do (and oftentimes, it's the latter, but I also think I have to do it). My life is fueled by passion, by art, by trying to understand the world more deeply. Lately, I’ve been looking inward and trying to understand myself more deeply. Practicing social distancing and taking lots of classes that emphasize self-discovery and individuality as an artist (big thanks, Business of Acting and Audition Techniques) can do that to a person. As this semester ends and I begin looking towards my last semester at AU, as I realize that I'm going to really start trying to break into this industry amidst a global pandemic and everything's going to be doubly harder, I wanted to start something that can keep my creative juices going.
For a long time, this website was in constant development, and it never felt quite right. Not professional enough, but also not really my own voice enough. And of course, I was still figuring out what exactly I wanted to do. This website first came to be in a first semester freshman level Visual Literacy class. I'm still finding my way and developing my voice as an artist and writer, though I've grown in spades since then. But I think I'm finally in a place where I can stop messing with this website and just let it be. It'll still grow and develop as I grow and develop, but the basic format finally speaks to me aesthetically and content-wise.
On this blog, you’ll see my thoughts about pretty much anything and general life updates. I don’t want to give it too much structure, but some things you might see me writing about include stray thoughts on theatre that may not necessarily ever get published anywhere, reviews of any works of art I feel compelled to write about, personal essays on my life because I want to do more creative nonfiction writing, listicles of my Spotify playlists and what certain songs mean to me at different moments, reflections and updates on my life as a creative being and just little slices of life that I want to share with the world. I don’t know how long I’ll keep up with this, but I think this will be good for me. To anyone who reads along: thank you.
