Goodness. It's been a while. Let's try to stay constant, now shall we? 

1.) Courtney and I play at this dank coffee shop near our house called Republic of Pie. We love it. We've played 3 times, playing again August 17 from 6-7pm. WOOOOOO :D

2.) This is the view on the bike path behind my house at sunset. I enjoy runs and longboard sessions down this path. Plus, you get to check out The Iliad, only the COOLEST bookstore ever.

5.) Camden Yards and my O's. Taken from great seats obtained by my sister. Missing this staple of my summer.

6.) Court and I went to see Masters of None at LACMA. They screened my two favorite episodes from Season 2. It was BOMB.

7.) I FINALLY FIT THE DRESS. Only show up in dresses for networking and went to Cine Summit on Paramount Lot. And all was well. But those shoes suck to walk far in.

8.) Shot this film with a bunch of my friends while I was home in MD for a contest. Didn't get it. Rats.

9.) Plane views from my flight back home to Baltimore. Pretty, right? I think this was Colorado someplace.

10.) These photos back to back show our growth in a couple months. Dress to impress, always and forever. We were children back at that first one. Dresses, all day errday, when we are networking. Otherwise, activewear. But actually, Film in CA (top photo) was a rad experience to meet a ton of people in the industry around locations and such, as well as Betsy Beers. Met a great guy, Mr. Brian, who's helped us tremendously. Joined New Filmmakers LA, which is the bottom and more recent photo. Understand the difference? Ponder that.

11.) On Sundays, we play fastpitch softball in Torrence. Still very rusty, but its been a blast to play this game, my love, one more time.

12.) This one time, Court and I played soccer on the beach for 6 hours and ended up with disgusting burns. Check out that face peelage, conveniently right before...

13.) I got cast for a TV show, but Court did such a rad job covering up my face! Air date is on cable in September. :)

14.) I just took a 2 week writers intensive that was very intensive. All day 6 days a week and two of those days, throw in acting class for 4 hours and the gym, and sleep. It was CRAZY.   Bless the soul of this best friend of mine for meal prep, picking me up, and taking care of me during that crazy two weeks, and pretty much every single day. Rare breed, this lady. I'll keep her. She's a catch :)

15.) I get to drive this street frequently and it never stops making me smile.

I love living in California. And today when I was driving to a new job interview, I felt so good. Avoided traffic by taking scenic routes to and from - not on purpose of course, just because of technology and GPS. But the interview went great today, acting class was great tonight. Courtney killed her first scene. Right, back track, we are in class for the summer at the Beverly Hills Playhouse. It's fancy and fantastic. Scene study is remarkable, especially not having to focus on directing. Its a weird thing to just focus on acting, but alas. 

Also, mentioned the writers intensive I went through with Act One. Came out of it with several writing partners and a solid concept for a webseries. Very excited to get that off the ground. Currently also collaborating with 3 other individuals. Can't wait to see what this group effort brings! 

Working at a couple places, trying to keep applying to acting jobs and film jobs daily. Can't wait to be able to storytell every single day - and get paid for it. 

We celebrate Court's birthday week next weekend. August, we'll be filming three shorts and I'll be preparing my AFI Directing fellowship papers, as well as finalizing ALOT of screenplays. Praying about the direction to take about getting a new camera. I know something is going to work out. It has to.
