Everyday at 2pm my alarm pops up on my phone. “Write in my blog” it says. Words I wrote years ago in an effort to try and write everyday. I click “Completed” with a pang of guilt, but the only person I am lying to when I proclaim to have finished the task, is myself.… Continue reading A Writer?
One of the weird things I think about constantly is that October 4th used to just be a normal day for me. I lived for 27 years before October 4th was anything I thought about other than to write it on a check or a school paper that happened to be penned on that day.… Continue reading Year Four
There are always so many variables when everything changes, aren't there?
I think it is possible that today was one of the best days of my whole life. I made a roundabout trip from Providence to New York City with the cast of a show I am in. We are performing at Fringe Festival NYC starting this Saturday and today was our dress rehearsal in the… Continue reading My Best Day
Tomorrow I am turning 30. I think this post is mostly me trying to exist in this moment where I am still 29 but prepared for 30. My twenties felt adequately long and I don't feel like I missed them or they went too fast or anything like that. I guess I just feel strange to… Continue reading What My 30 Looks Like
It's been a crazy week. This has further proven to me that I'm a crazy person. Monday, January 25 would have been my mothers 66th birthday; one of a few torturous days that used to be just a day and that now will be forever marked.

I returned home from an incredible trip to Europe and found that I had brought back a new woman. I felt confident, happy, capable and ready to take hold of my life. I was cast a major role in a play and a short film, my coworkers made me feel right back at home in… Continue reading Just One Mile
Note: I wrote this while still in Dublin but have taken a week or so to edit and polish it, so this all actually took place May 24-28, 2015 in spite of when I'm posting it. So much to catch up on! A lot has happened since my last post and I haven't even had… Continue reading Ireland Days 2-6 (Dublin)
I landed in the Dublin airport in the mid afternoon after 15 hours of travel. One car ride, two flights, a train ride, two busses and a zillion security checks and I made it with minimal trouble or stress. As it turns out I'm a very calm traveler and I have my wits about me… Continue reading Ireland Day 1 (Swords and Dublin)
