As much as I’m tenaciously pursuing my career in acting and writing, I think it’s safe to say that I can’t stay out of the fashion realm for too long (especially since I work in it – go figure). Take a look at some of my new fall items I picked up while visiting my home state of North Carolina:
I’d like to interrupt this hiatus to share some stellar photos by fellow Brooklyn-based creative, Evan Payne (TalesofaLostBoy.com). We connected through the blog world sometime in early summer but recently had a chance to get some cool shots in the charming and eclectic neighborhood of Bushwick.
Last month marked my one year anniversary of living in New York and I feel like I’m really coming into my own. Lately, I’ve been keeping busy with a variety of projects and events in film so it’s been great getting my feet wet in another passion. While I’m in between acting classes at The Barrow Group, I’m auditioning and working on a couple student/short films. It’s been challenging, but it feels right. The toughest part is juggling my schedule – full time job, auditions, filming, networking, writing, finding time to decompress…but I’m enjoying the process of throwing myself into something that feels both foreign and natural while learning how to develop my craft. I’ve also taken to using the Meet Up site lately to connect with fellow writers and those events have been very beneficial. I’ve been able to share some of my work and get advice from professional playwrights, novelists, etc.
This past year has been quite a ride and has fortunately had more high points than lows. I think I can attribute that to my new sense of trust in my own gut feelings – walk away from what doesn’t feel right, throw yourself into what feels positive. It sounds simple enough, but you’d be surprised how hard it is to trust yourself and your ideas sometimes.
Thanks for reading, lovers. Keep dreaming, Keep Moving.
P.S. If you got the Wayne’s World reference, then you’re a goof and I adore you.
