I Found a Blog!!

You know what I just realized? I have a blog. You know, that I write on. Maybe I should write things on it... But in all seriousness, I have a very good reason that I haven't written anything on here since November. You guessed it, my dog ate my computer. Okay, that was the worst dad joke ever. It was really awful. Hey, at least I found something I'm good at...

Actually, these last few months have been the busiest and greatest I've ever had. I've traveled all over the country, performed in my first and last high school musical (it was not High School Musical. Sorry to disappoint.), and have done general senior-y things.

Along the way, I really kind of learned about how much I missed out on during my freshman and sophomore years. I've also taken a lot of pictures. I'm thinking about opening up a little gallery so the world can witness me in a maid outfit. Yeah, you read that right.

I'm really grateful that (even though I did nothing my first two years of high school) I did everything I possibly could these past two years. I'm so glad I took every opportunity because I've learned so much about myself. For example, I probably should never wear a maid outfit again. I've also made the most amazing friends along the way. Friends I wish I had all four years because they're honestly some of the most incredible people I've ever met. So thank y'all for these last few months especially. They've been awesome.  It's cheesy, but then again, so is pizza. And pizza is delicious.

Okay, now I don't know where I'm going with this...at all. Anyway, I think I'll be writing a lot more lately. I really miss it. Now that I found it again, I really have no excuse not to use that blog. And, like that weird chick from Mean Girls, I just have a lot of feelings. And I want to meet Tina Fey. So yeah, I'm going to write some more soon. Stay tuned!

I'm Still Not Sure

I've tried to start this post several times over the past few weeks. For one thing, it's incredibly difficult to write after not doing so for months (seven, to be exact). It's another thing entirely to admit that I don't know what I'm doing, where I'm going, or who I am.

That being said, I've done it before. Two years ago, I posted a video on YouTube entitled "I'm Not Sure". Now, if you've never seen this before, I completely understand. I just watched it for the first time since I posted it, and it was cringeworthy. This is not only because it's weird to watch 20 year old me go through her YouTube phase, touch her face too much, talk with some strange inflection in her voice. Well, that's certainly part of it. Really, though, it's because nothing's changed.

At the end of the video, I say I'm grateful that I have a year and a half left of college to "figure it all out". That year and a half has passed. I gradu…

Talking to Myself in the Mirror

I think it's a pretty safe bet that a lot of aspiring actors/writers/directors/filmy people practice their future Oscar speech in the mirror as kids. I did. Who am I kidding? I still do. It comes with the territory. My mirror talks go, ahem, went (who am I kidding? go) further.

Sometimes, I do my makeup while talking to Barbara Walters. Other days, brushing my hair turns into a podcast interview. Most of the time, though, I rehearse what I'm going to say to my heroes. These hypothetical moments are incredibly important, and I can't afford to say anything stupid, so car rides, showers, and mornings getting ready are devoted to preparation.

This probably makes me sound crazy. The word "narcissist" may also come to mind. I think one of my heroes would have appreciated both the crazy and the narcissism in this bit of oversharing, though, but we lost her this morning.

One of my first posts on this blog was a tribute to Carrie Fisher. I read it over this afternoon after…

Change is a Good Thing

I'm a binge watcher. A product of my time. There are still, however, shows I will watch as they air. Sure, most of them are award shows, but that still counts, right?

American Horror Story falls into the very tiny category of non-awards shows I'll tune into live every week. After hearing a ton of hype, I watched the first couple seasons on Netflix, then started tuning in every Wednesday starting in season three. Even if I hadn't watched the first couple of seasons, I wouldn't have missed anything. Each season is a brand new story, a chance for the showrunners and a troupe of actors to explore something new.

After the third season, though, I felt like something was missing. The cast of characters kept getting bigger, more subplots kept developing, and, to me, the series began to feel scattered and unpolished. In short, it lost its edge. Despite loving the show and the amazing cast, I couldn't finish last season.

I went into this year thinking I was going to skip it a…
