Patience is a Virtue

In a couple weeks, I will be approaching my four months since I had reconstructive knee surgery on my right knee. The rehabilitation process has been rocky, to say the least.

Identity

I have been meaning to write about identity and what Uta Hagen said in our readings. More than just pertaining to acting, being able to figure out your identity will help you find yourself in real life. We all have an image of who we think we are but as life changes, we are more … Continue reading
