    I Dream Of Mine

    I have always thought I was meant for big things lol. Not sure just what yet, but man would it be great to be an actress. My name up on a big screen, I'd even take a super small part :) I just want to get to do it at least once. I have no acting training though, so who knows...

    It'S Stupid I Know.

    I was a quite mouse up until recently, and throughout middle school I did lights for our little productions. From the start I was mesmerized by people melting down backstage or in my light booth, right before crawling up and doing a stunning performance. I couldn't say I enjoyed...

    Dreams Vs Reality

    The situation's really simple, I guess. Always wanted to be a young actress and also a writer with a great culture. These are my dreams. I study phisics at university but I'm not very good at maths. My body sucks and I don't have the time I need to write. Oh, and my parents...

    Following My Dreams...

    Look I've never acted before in my life, but for some reason I knew that what I was meant to be. Like it was manifested inside of me, of course every time I say I want to be an actress out loud it sounds absurd. But recently I've been cast in a play, nothing great just a little...

    I've wanted to be an actress ever since I can remember.  Not just because of the fame and fortune, but because it's one of the things that comes most naturally to me.  While I was never in the drama club or any school plays, I know that I still have the knack for acting...

    Imagine being in a film like the "The Hunger

    Games" I know they aren't real. But to be an actress who gets to film all these amazing scenes along side amazing people. It would be the perfect life and one I wish I could live.
