it’s been too long { post }

Keeping up with a blog is not easy when you have school work, class after class and a boyfriend you wish to give all of your time to. I cannot complain about any one of those things (okay except for maybe the assignments), but sometimes there’s just too much to do. There is SO MUCH that’s been going…

exploring Boston & NYC with my favorites

My goodness this post is well overdue. Again I have been swamped with assignments, classes and many rehearsals. Twelve to fourteen hour days at NYU are something else. Although I have no complaints, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t exhausted. At least I love what I’m doing! photo taken by Nastia Liukin {…

n y c ~ living

My first couple of weeks in the big city have been a complete whirlwind. Adjusting to a new lifestyle is always difficult, but even more exciting than I could ever imagine. I haven’t been able to document what I’ve been doing because I have just been too darn busy. I’ve been in the middle of…

the start of – NYC – { living }

The last two weeks have been a complete whirlwind, and it’s about to escalade. Last week I traveled to NYC to find an apartment for myself and my ever so darling roommates. We had a plan, and we had been chatting with many people but just like anything: you have to get out there and…

it’s all about the { people } people

Yesterday morning while driving to work I cried almost the entire way. As I reflected on the night prior, I couldn’t help but be extremely happy yet upset all at the same time. It finally dawned on me that I am in fact leaving. I’m leaving a place where I have come to know some of…

m i d w e e k — Adventures

The thing with being a performer is that you hardly ever have a case of the Mondays. In fact many Mondays end up feeling like Fridays; when most of the time the weekend falls in the middle of the week. Therefore ‘hump day’ can become pretty darn exciting. That is if you have awesome friends…

Foodie: two new restaurants and a favorite of mine

Normally I’m the type of person who likes routine, especially with my food choices. However I also enjoy exploring; I have made two new restaurant discoveries as of late. Thanks to friends and family, I continue to find new places to grub. Both new locations happen to be in different States that I call come….

Let’s celebrate !

In lieu of two major accomplishments I’ve reached lately, I decided to treat myself! What a better way to do this than with food and sports? Talk about the perfect combination, if I do say so myself.   { she’s the best they come } Saturday night after our official certification, my girlfriend Noelle and…

How NYC .d r a w s. you. in.

This past weekend, I was able to travel to the Big Apple to perform at a major event with a dance group named Keshet. Together we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria off of Park Ave. & 49th St. If you can imagine the beauty of this place, the incredible ballroom set up with the stage…

the comfort of being h o m e

Recently I have been visiting my home due to various obligations. I cannot say that I would complain about any excuse to make it back to good old Utah. Isn’t it funny how the feeling towards your birthplace changes over time? It is the sense of security and comfort that draws me back over and…
