All That Power

Coming into 2019, I had 1 thing: an amazing commission. And I am so grateful for that. But having just one thing really, really messed me up. Because of my other playwright friends were like “2019 is gonna be my year” or “Wait until you hear what I’m up to in 2019.” Well. Since January…

Do You Love Me?

For the month of January, the plan was to deactivate my Facebook account. Facebook was starting to make me feel gross. Instead of celebrating my playwright friends, I was jealous of all of them. I was depressed. It was all bad. I very quietly deactivated it on Christmas and thought for sure I’d be able…

So…what now?

Being honest, I truly hate end of the year posts. Even when it was a good year. I think the biggest part of it is I’m someone who would much rather hear about your plans and what’s coming up than “best moments 20xx.” We already lived through the year. Do we really need to revisit…

A Year of Firsts

I’ll be the first to admit that based on my age I have questionable taste in music. I don’t know if all my friends are just “old souls” or if I truly have bad tastes. With that said, I have every Ariana Grande CD. Like the physical CD. (I also have every Taylor Swift CD…

Would That Be Enough?

Early Saturday morning, I’ll be driving to Kansas City for a reading of Good Bad People with Unicorn Theatre. Which despite the very depressing post that you’re about to read, I am very excited about. (I also love Kansas City so YAY FOR A WEEKEND IN MY FAVORITE CITY.)   I thought for a long…

Can I get a connection?

I get asked two questions a lot: (1) how’d you end up in Arkansas? and (2) How did you get all the connections you have? Well, both are relatively easy to answer. I ended in Arkansas because I wanted a job in theatre and this is the only place that had one. And, honestly, I…

Homecoming: YAY AREA!

I grew up in LA in the 90s. And weirdly, by the time I got to high school, despite being from southern California, all the music we listened to was from the Bay. E-40. Too Short. All of it. I remember moving to Indiana and talking about “yay area” and everyone thought I was talking…

GTFO: The Importance of Self-Care

What a trash week to be alive. Everything is on fire and everything is terrible. (My therapist really wanted me to emphasize that everything isn’t terrible and I should try to find things that make me happy but it’s my party and Imma whine because I’m a water sign. We love that sh*t.) Aside from…
