With the end of the year approaching I’m suddenly inspired to reflect on 2015, take inventory of the positive, find solutions to the negative and ultimately decide what I want to bring with me into 2016. One of the things I want to bring with me is this very blog. Hey blog, missed ya! And in true Golden-fashion, I said to myself, “Self, why start … Continue reading You Can Call this a Comeback
Happy Monday everyone! A friend recently shared this extremely inspiring article with me and I wanted to share it with all of you. What better way to start your week than with a “To Don’t List” of the 30 things to stop doing to yourself. It’s a quick, moving and ultimately useful reminder of the basics that are easily forgotten while life happens. Once you’ve … Continue reading To Don’t List
This past Friday night, I visited a special lemonade stand. Yes, that is what I did on my Friday night and for a good cause. My longtime friend, Brett Gursky, is a finalist on MSN.com’s Tastemaker competition show, ala The Apprentice but for the socially inclined. Brett was given the challenge of directing and producing a fashion show for fashion week that tied in a … Continue reading Lemonade For Life!
As you know, I recently graduated from the Second City Training Center in Los Angeles. You may not know though that such people as Steve Carell, Jim Belushi, Tina Fey, and Mike Myers, those nobodies, are also products of Second City. So is John Paul Karliak, whom I was fortunate enough to be in class with and perform with him on stage. Talk about talent. … Continue reading Mommy Issues
Every Wednesday night I get together with the special people in Ithamar Enriquez’ Conservatory 4 class at the Second City Training Center Los Angeles to pitch sketch ideas and cast scenes just like we are producing SNL. These scenes are then performed again in our improv shows before a live audience. We are collecting material that will soon be used in our 8 week show … Continue reading Funny People!
Whoever said that this is “the most wonderful time of the year” should have also included that it is the most hectic time as well. I’m beat and still have New Year’s Eve to get through! Ever since I left the nest for college, I have always come back for the holidays. I usually come back for about 12-20 days depending on how long I … Continue reading Holiday Series Part 3: I’ll Be Home For Christmas
How Thanksgiving has already come and gone baffles me. Really. I mean this year flew faster than ever before. That means New Years is right around the corner and then we start all over again. This is truly the most wonderful time of the year, for so many reasons, however it seems to do funny things to people. Aside from the standard family drama that … Continue reading Holiday Series Part 1: All I Want for Christmas is You
Sometimes when I talk with my friends about my latest crush or fling, or hear about theirs, I feel a little silly and childish because of how we discuss them. Some we nickname, some we bash, and some we brag about. It’s all in good fun and it’s just what girls do. Let girls be girls! Amen. Well Amen until you hear your mom and … Continue reading The Flirting 50’s
I have never been religious by any means. Not even close. I have always felt Jewish though and connected with other Jewish people, but could never really pinpoint what I was feeling. I was Bat Mitzvahed and have celebrated the major Jewish holidays every year since I was born. But it never mattered much to me because I was born Jewish and knew that I … Continue reading Renewed Religion…Really?
I was incredibly devastated by the events on September 11, 2001. So moved, that I didn’t know what to do with my thoughts and sat down and wrote lyrics to what could some day become a song. Then in 2003, I brought my lyrics to my guitar teacher who’s name now escapes me but definitely deserves credit, and we produced and recorded Tomorrow’s Light. I … Continue reading Tomorrow’s Light
