My life as a comic


Except it kind of blows. And sometimes people getz mad at meh.

Hm... what can I do to make myself feel better?

...Maybe I'll just play the ukulele until I come up with something.

By the way, I'm not shirtless. It's a pink tank but it's way small and my hair is way big.

Once I was a cute little whipper snapper, with bangs, and I looked like this:

Now that my bangs have grown out, I look like this:
(that's my grandma! She looks pretty good for an old broad, right? I think we look kind of similar)

On Food in Dorms

TODAY I WORKED SOOO MANY HOURS. Namely 7, which isn't a lot compared to the normal cubicle work day, I guess. But I stood in a booth and read lines in a high pitched voice. And I got lots of free anime DVDs. I gave 'em to my brother. :-)

And now I'm gonna try to "student blog". I'll edit (i.e. censor) it for school, eventually...

Thank God I'm out of the horrid freshman meal plan, which requires you to basically eat every meal in the cafeteria so as to spend all your money or have it vanish into the black hole that is Pace's debt as a university.

I have to write a student blog, and I'm procrastinating like mad. So I'm gonna write it about food and cooking for yourself in the dorm.


My roommates are all really, really excellent cooks. Sarah makes healthy steamed vegetables all the time, Whitney has a well organized index of delicious home-cooked meals, and Rebecca always seems to be making some Brazilian dish foreign to my Texan palate.

And me? Usually I just boil water for Ramen and eat it out of the pot. OR, I eat goldfish crackers. Or frozen pizza. (Reminder: Kate needs to buy more frozen pizzas.)

Here are some recipes that are good for lazy college kids such as myself.


1. S'mores Casserole
Ingredients: Small marshmallows, a chocolate bar, and teddy grahams.
Place a square of chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, then pour marshmallows over it until you feel the ratio is about equal. Microwave for about 10 seconds or until the marshmallows puff up considerably. Take it out and pour teddy grahams, however many you like, into the bowl and stir up into a messy, sticky, teddy graham-y mess of smores tasting delight. It's the lazy man's s'mores in a bowl, eaten with a spoon. Don't blame me if you gain another freshman 15.

2. Microwave Ramen
Don't have a stove? Well, if you're dorming there's one down the hall. But sometimes you're just too lazy or they're already occupied. So you can make Ramen in the microwave if you're really desperate for that sodium-packed noodly goodness. Fill a big glass measuring cup, or a bowl, with water, and nuke for 2 minutes or until boiling. Put in noodles and boil another 2 minutes. Not as perfect as stovetop Ramen, but it'll do for a hungry student.

Other common microwave foods are easy mac, cup o' noodles, and other unhealthy shit, but those are a given. Of COURSE we'll eat those.

Downtown NY is kind of shitty for late night food choices because most of the local food joints cater to business men on lunch hours, not hungry/stoned/drunk/bored/otherwise ravenous students craving food.

Why is my blog so often about eating? Gah, y'all, Kate's a fatass. =P

I'm gonna go procrastinate more 'cuz my dad is home a couple weeks early from flight school and we're gonna go do family things, I guess. Yay for him not being in Iraq! He passed his fixed wing course! <3

Au revoir...

The Misadventures of Flying Standby at LaGuardia

I am hooooooommmmeeee!

Weird, right? I was just so excited about getting back into the business of school life, what with my Goodnight Moon poem tribute and all that nonsense, when suddenly work calls and I have to be quickly shipped back to Texas for some adventures in voice acting.

Which is kind of cool. I mean, it's really fun, despite how jaded I've become with flying in general.

I made a video during the day, starting with sitting at the airport and going until I'm sitting at my home base kitchen! (But obviously it was not filming the whole time. That would be a six hour movie. And there is only one Gone With The Wind, which is plenty.)

One of the great things about getting to visit home is that you get fed home cooked food. And if you're my mother's daughter, you get Tex Mex doggy bag food from the local Tex Mex venue. Which, considering we're in the best state for Tex Mex, is awesome.

Although I didn't like guacamole until I moved to New York...

But I veer from the point.

Tomorrow I go into work at 11 (whee! The life of an actor is sweet for those who stay up late on youtube!) and after that I may hang out with my BIRD.....

Cheese sticks.

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

It's very hard to keep a lightly sleeping roommate sleeping when you're up late and doing things. I feel bad. I tend to bang things around, sometimes.

So I wrote a poem, for very little reason other than it makes me happy to do so.

Two rivers got the best of me,
The Hudson and the Trinity;
yet only one led out to sea.
The bridges must be weeping.
While half my world is vastly paved
The other's wand'ring minds have caved
To Just How Many Souls Are Saved?
But hush, my roommate's sleeping.

Goodnight <3

It doesn't quite translate well, but screw google translate, I typed it myself and it totally makes sense.

P.S. I found this on stumble and it is pretty much me, perfectly.

"I am in a constant battle with my mind. i go from thinking that i am special for being "intelligent" to realizing that being aware of my being special is, in fact a sign that i am just seeking attention and simply something i like thinking about myself. then i realize that being aware of that fact counter-acts itself, and i am stuck in an endless paradox of myself. i have not yet learned how to stop and just say 'it doesn't matter' "

Schoolingness / Worst Audition Ever-ness

School hath beguneth again, and thus the stress of auditions. I'll spare you the aches and pains I have with the closed environment of school theatre in general, as well as my insecurities about a college major that guarantees I won't have a job for more than a year at a time, and instead I'm going to make lists! Because lists are fun!

My roommate has a ton of gorgeous clothes and I'm totes jealous,
But it's cuz I'm a shitty ass cheapskate, for the record, and therefore my clothes are shitty. Haha.

1. PRO: You.... think for yourself, I guess? psh. Everyone thinks for themselves.
2. CON: Your life is anxiety. My life IS anxiety.
3. PRO: You drink more. I will not be a lightweight dammit! ...Is this a Pro?
4. CON: Your friends sing in the streets. You say that singing in public is like using magic in the muggle world, and then they give you hateful looks.
5. CON: They hate you when your correct their grammar. I'M SORRY I JUST LOVE THE APOSTROPHE

1. Rebecca doesn't like overhead light at all, so instead we have those huge ass white paper lamps, two round ones from either corner and one gigantic wine-bottle shaped one by the window. It gives the room a romantic glow.
2. I HAVE A WINDOW WITH A GREAT VIEW OF DOWNTOWN/MY SCHOOL! :D It's next to my desk! I have sort of a little study nook.
3. I have a really sweet badass desk, with a lot of space and shelves, which is great because I already have to memorize a whole bunch of Hiragana by Monday!
3. My roomies let me put my art up to cover unsightly wall blemishes and fuse boxes.
4. We have a shit ton of kitchen supplies as well as a very lovely big kitchen.
5. All this space and I'm still in New York. Manhattan, nonetheless!

And so, I am going to TRY to have a glimmer of hope about the goodness of this coming year even though I had the official worst audition of my LIFE yesterday. Worst. Audition. Of. My. Life. And that's a lot of auditions to compete with for title of Worst Audition Ever.

Goodnight, Moon (My vers)

In the great purple room
There was a cell phone
And a red suitcase
And a picture of--
The Beatles walking over the road
And there were three little sock monkeys sitting on chairs
And two little dogs
And a pair of socks
And a little toy ukulele
And an external hard drive
And a glass and some ice and a bowl full of rice
And a sleepy college girl who said "life is nice."
Goodnight room, goodnight moon...
