job well done

The Edmonton theatre scene has just been thriving this month! 

So many styles - so many venues - so little time.

This is one of the things I love about Edmonton! 

I have - in one way or another - participated in 10 shows this month, with the 2nd Year Grant MacEwan Theatre Arts Student's Cabarets on the way!  

I wanted to say job well done to all artists that performed in a show this month. I look forward to seeing/hearing/feeling what you are bringing to the stage in April!

what i wore: 39 Steps

Dexter's Surprise.

I was just about finished watching all 5 seasons of Dexter, when my good friend D told me that he had seen Mr. Michael C. Hall play the Emcee in Cabaret on Broadway...

This was mind blowing, earth shattering news. 

How did this never come to my attention before!

I was used to seeing M. C. Hall covered in blood, holding a large knife in his hand...

But shirtless with suspenders - Nope. 

So turns out everyone's favourite serial killer is a musical theatre buff just like the rest of us!

Here are some of my latest sketches.

I think with my feet
Inspired by Kieran 

unsquare dance

I absolutely love this song, but this video cracks me up!

Danny Nielson used it as a fun/exhausting 7/8 warm up today in Breaking Barres' Mystery Men - Tap Dance Workshop! 

I have also performed to this song at the Grant MacEwan 2nd year Musical Review!
What a hoot!

quote of the day.

Usually I just press next, and try not to think of you - but I can't keep running away from the music I love.

the boys

Today I have my first rehearsal with the boys! 
Excited and nervous  - should be a lot of fun.


What talented, kind, and supportive dudes! I am finally not freaking out about Saturday WOOT!

I even jammed in high heel taps - which was a first.

A huge thanks to B for lending me her high heel taps!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011


I woke up drank a DanActive
ate toast with peanut butter and banana
left for yin yoga (my newest love)
I almost fall asleep after class
I went and practiced a tap number I am working on for this Saturday
I practiced singing
I ran the entire show for Saturday
then I ate some snacks
then I waited for the tap studio 
I tapped 
I accidentally bruised the top of my foot
because I was wearing high heel taps and hit the top of my foot with the heel
not cool


dinner time

chicken noodle soup
grilled cheese 
spinach salad

Is it better to wait? Wait till you find that perfect someone?

Or should you explore and find out who that someone is?

Is it worth getting your heart destroyed, or do you build up a resistance to ass wholes?

Do you stay still?

Do you keep calm, and know that something good will happen to you soon?


A question mark means a lot.
