Walk A Mile In Another Artist’s Shoes

February 8, 2013

After looking at the awesome photos in The Redheaded Actress’ ‘A Day in the Life’ post, as well as The Political Theatre Maker’s photo essay about being on tour– I felt inspired to share what a day in my life might look like. Of course, this is just what my life was like today. I decided to choose a day when I was not working at my day job, because those days are pretty boring. It varies from day to day, however this will give you a glimpse into my life as an actress/vocalist.


These are the beady, little eyes I wake up to every morning. He is very good at getting me up if my alarm clock doesn’t.

“Coach” (my parakeet’s nickname, since he is VERY opinionated about my work) then follows me into the shower and proceeds to steam himself, while I get ready for the day.

Then it’s off to the post office to mail out demos to venues I would like to perform at and postcards to my contacts.

I hop over to Starbucks for a Venti Zen Green Tea and chocolate grahams, and I do some work on the computer. This is a great time to check my e-mail, look at social networking sites, check Actors Equity for open calls, etc.

After lunch, I head to rehearsal for an independent feature film I am going to be in!

I often see this piece of art on my commute and never tire of staring at it. I think every time I see it, I notice something else in the poster! There is so much detail, and it really depicts the types of people you see on the subway.

The rehearsal goes extremely well, and I head home again!

My roommate makes and sells Organic Catnip Toys. So, I spend some time printing and cutting out labels to package the toys. Check out her Etsy account HERE– she has some really neat, original designs!

I head out again for some fresh air and a quick pick-me-up at a local bakery! It has fruit on top, so it MUST be healthy, right….? 😉

Then it’s back to work, burning demos for my band.

My roommate and I decide to get some yummy Thai food for dinner- Mmmmm!

I finish the night by stopping in one of my favorite places to support a local band. It’s a nice way to end the day.

I hope you enjoyed stepping into my shoes for a day!

    Coach is the cutest bird I have ever seen. I want a bird now but I think I’ll settle for keeping my bamboo plant alive.

      He can be a bit of a handful at times, but I think he is a cutie as well 🙂
