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

The Friday Funnies

You know how people ask, “you want to laugh?” A) Who doesn’t?  Really, when was the last time you heard someone reply, “No, not for me thanks.”  Exactly.  That’s just silly!  And B) there’s a 50-50 chance the person will not laugh at all after having set such high expectations.  But in all seriousness, the important question is…you want to laugh? Then go see The … Continue reading The Friday Funnies

Mommy Issues

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

The Window

There is a definite dating window of opportunity that exists before entering the well-known Friend Zone.   By definition, the Window of Opportunity is “a  brief opportunity to do something, especially something that will be beneficial or profitable in some way.”  Think about it.  When you meet someone, don’t you initially wonder what their motive is, be it friendship or more?  How can you not?  Unless … Continue reading The Window

It’s called a phase for a reason folks

When you first start dating someone, you do everything you can to impress them.  You put effort into what you wear when around them, douse yourself in perfume or cologne, put on make up, get a haircut, and make sure to have gum handy at all times.  You have butterflies before you see the person.  You wonder if you look alright or should have thrown … Continue reading It’s called a phase for a reason folks
