Life Reminders

I love making lists. I’ve determined however that my love is less about writing out what I have to do, and more focused on the act of crossing out a

to-do and making it a to-done.

After a bit of internal analyzing, I have mapped this crossin’ off love back to my high school drama teacher. She always carried a yellow steno-pad with her.  IT kept track of everything from to-do set building, to to-do PTA needs  for our current production.

The wonderful feeling of releasing a to-do

Most vividly, I remember her ferociously scribbling  notes during rehearsals which were then used to recite back to us in (less beloved) “notes” time. (You theatre people know exactly what I mean.)

I would watch her, after every note spoken, take her black ball-tip pen and cross out the note. That cross equaled a release. The instruction given was no longer on her shoulders, it was officially passed off onto someone else.


So yeah, thanks to her I love list making. If you’ve never experienced the sensation of scratching through a to-do, I highly recommend you try it. Start small, like a grocery list. You’ll soon join the rest of us addicts.

Write a Letter Day

Today, according to this Facebook event 726 people pledged to write a letter. Yes, a hand written, delivered by the United States Post Office letter. (See picture)

Writing letters is not unfamiliar to me. I had a pen pal during high school, and I’ve kept up with several friends from various stages of my college career through letter writing over the past 4 years, and have every intention of continuing.

If you are interested in taking part in the next Write a Letter event, there appears to be one planned already for October 15. Find out more here.

And if you hurry, you can still write a letter and get it picked up tomorrow when many of today’s letters are picked up!

Had such an incredible experience learning from actor Matthew Lillard yesterday. Major props to Animus Theatre for organizing the wonderful workshop – I look forward to many more!

Wonderful lessons learned:

Use Fuck and other awesome words to get yourself PUMPED.

Don’t give away pancakes (excessive hand gestures that disperse your energy) put it in your voice.

Everything boils down to wanting to fuck, or wanting to kill.

Finding your dance of love is useful.

“Let it be this time” warm up is an incredible tool.

Actors are like antelope on the Serengeti trying not to get attached by Cheetahs.

& Great actors can rock performing the Maids.

Jess and I super pumped after the workshop and headed off to Central Park and a fun dinner at Vintage.
