Hello beautiful beings,

Checking in from Bristol on my first week of the Spring Break. This is it. The quiet before the final storm... When we get back in April we start an epic third term that stretches all the way through August! Okay, okay, they technically split it...

Just about one month ago, I had my first day of classes at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School... it's hard to believe a month has gone by in that it's flown, but I also feel as if I've gained a lifetime's worth of acting lessons in five short weeks.

Our days are packed...

Hello my dear supporters!

I want to let those of you who have donated to my campaign already know that I am currently processing rewards—backers who are waiting on Sonnets and Soliloquies should get them very soon, and postcards will be going out in the next few weeks.....

Happy September to you all!

It's back to school month and I'm less than two weeks away from arrival in the U.K.! My oh my, how this summer flew by. Fundraising is still going strong with about $8.5k raised so far between my Generosity campaign (donate here) and outside...

So, it's been a couple weeks since I've updated you all on my journey. A tumultuous and busy month so far, August has me desperately seeking more time to finish projects, see all my loved ones, show up at important events, pack and unpack and repack suitcases. But I al...

I mentioned in my last post that I was lucky enough to have "A very important rundown with a very lovely MA Alumna". That lovely lady happens to be the brilliant Jessica Giannone.

Big news on the funding front: A very kind and generous anonymous donation was made on Saturday bringing my Bristol Old Vic Theatre School fundraiser past the 50% funded mark! This is a very big milestone for me. I’m hoping to break $10k before I get to school in Septe...

Good News! This girl has a UK Tier 4 Student Visa allowing her to study in the UK for the year.

Now I just need to figure out a way to raise the remaining $7,855 for my studies... but every day is a surprise as my generosity campaign continues to inch closer and closer...

Only a couple weeks in and Summer is already flying by. Visa panic bookended a peaceful, holiday-weekend in the country:

I somehow managed to relax with a book by the pond and enjoy the stunning Mount Holyoke College Botanical Garden while in mid-madness with my applica...

If anyone has every traveled for more than 6 months to the U.K. (or elsewhere in the world) they may know what a royal pain applying for a Visa truly can be. Not that I wasn't warned—the school sent many pdfs and emails breaking down the process in as many ways as poss...
