what's been going on with me.
My husband's film "The Dogwalker" came out in movie theatres at the beginning of the month. We'll be in Minnesota on Sept 22 to see it at the Lagoon with his family and friends. I'm so proud of the soundtrack he composed it absolutely beautiful.
I'm leaving for New York on saturday to film my second movie this year, I'm playing a newly divorced mother of a 6 year old. I'm very excited and looking forward to drowning in creativity for a week and half.
I have another film out right now in theatres called "Conversations with Other Women"....I had a lin in the film, although I'm not sure if it's been cut.
Oh and the film I was key wardrobe on "Brick" is now available at blockbuster!!!
Things have been moving along wonderfully, working tons and enjoying the last of the hot weather in Los Angeles.
Chris and I have been planning on starting a family next year but life is what happens while you're busy making plans.
Last night Chris and I had a lovely conversation with Vincent Gallo, I love that man he was everything I thought he'd be.
I've been investigating eastern medicine lately and may schedule myself for acupuncture and a colonic due to many problems I've had with my digestion system and my back. I've been living a life of discomfort for so long now I'm desperate for relief.
We've also been looking into buying a condo somewhere in the valley but I'm not sold on the idea just yet.
Sadly listing recent activities in my life is the only journaling I can get myself to produce for now. Hopefully I'll take some time to upload pictures and get more creative with my entries.

My husband and I are about to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary. Chris has been planning an surprise weekend somewhere special. I've been looking forward to something relaxing and mellow. Lately it's been nothing but work and socializing. Expensive dinners, late club nights and hitting up the bars. I have no idea where this sudden surge to dance and eat has come from but I'm rolling with it as I know it will fade. It's been so hot here I think it's been driving us out of the house nightly.
Last week I finally found an air conditioner online that would fit in our window. I was so excited when it arrived Wednesday that I could hardly wait for Chris to get home and install it. Needless to say when he hooked it up we realized it had been dropped and was broken. I started crying I was so angry that we would have to now go through the trouble of returning it and waiting for another to arrive. I hate when shit like that happens, especially when you put in the time to do it right and you still get screwed. Oh well another week of our home sauna.
It may not have been a good idea to buy a black Saab as I've been having to get it washed at least once a week, nothing's worse than having spots all over your car and a blurry windshield.
My legs are like jello, partially from the heat and working all day, we pulled clothes for a Volvo commercial at Warner Brother's Costume house for 6 hours today. There is a early 60's scene that required us to dig through some of the most amazing vintage dresses I've ever had at my fingertips. I was so inspired to to recreate some of those cute little shift dressed and peter pan collared shirts. I put together so really beautiful outfits, if only that place was my closet I'd be in heaven.
Lately I've had some turbo family drama tugging at my heart strings. My baby sister (19) and I have been fighting for months because I disapprove of her continued relationship with my older brother who I haven't spoke to in a year...since he never showed up to my wedding he was a groomsman in. WELL since then he stopped speaking to the entire family instead of apologizing. Saturday my brother blew up on my baby sister and tore her apartment up by punching light fixtures and smashing everything in her refrigerator. No only did he scare the crap out of her but then he told her he was going to "kill her dad" yeah thats right he said he knew people and was going to have him killed. Then after she physically pushed him out of her house. He broke into her old house and stole a bunch of her things. I don't even know how to express how scary it is to watch someone you love and looked up to destroy everything around them. I've run out of ideas on how to help him and now I'm just down right pissed off. How dare he pull this with my sister? Yes everyone in my family has had some experience with his outbreaks but enough is enough. I'm tired of him hurting my family and disturbing our structure constantly. I keep imaging myself physically fighting him, like smacking some sense into him. He hasn't spoken to his 3 year old son in i don't know how long and every year that goes by the poor baby is robbed of a father. I could go on for days about this so I'll just end by saying I have a bad feeling something will come to an end soon.
Please dear god do not let my brother take his own life as his biological father did. Please watch over him and provide him with the strength he needs to believe in himself and find love in you.
I have to be onset in Burbank at 9am and then at the club from 10-4am so I should try to sleep...I just thought it would be nice to update on my life, it's only fair.

you never have to live without an air conditioner. I'm melting in my apartment. I ordered one this weekend but it'll most likely be onther week or so until it arrives. Until then I'm miserable trying to work in this heat.

Current Mood: sick
I've spent the last 4 days with the flu and it's starting to really heat up in LA which has made this illness even more miserable. Everyone has been saying are you sure you're not pregnant, No I'm Not!!! I'm so tired of getting sick every month, I know it's from working at the club. I'm constantly touching people's glasses, straws, napkins and I never get to wash my hands till the end of the night. I think I need to start caring around bacteria wipes or something for my hands because this is getting ridiculous. I take vitamins to build up my immune system but it doesn't seem to help. Well there isn't a job i know of that brings in that amount of money in two to three days, I should stop complaining...
I'm flying to New York in August to film a movie titled "Pranksters," where I'll play a mother of a 6 year old...pretty excited about it. They're filming it in a little beach town in New Jersey. I can't wait, the cast is amazing.
In two weeks I start wardrobe on a film called "Valley of the Damned," Nylon magazine is producing so we'll have tons of clothing options, it should be loads of fun!! We're shooting in the valley so it's gonna be super Hot!
I'm buying a new car this month finally, my ford Focus hates me...
Chris is doing well with his music, I think he's well on his way to getting a record deal, people here are just eating him up.
I'm thankful for all the opportunities that have come our way. I need to have faith in the future and know that no matter what things will work out. Every job that comes my way is a gift, and I need to stop worrying about the next and be grateful for the now.
My sore throat is killing me, but it's way to hot out for tea....why didn't we find an apartment with air conditioning???
Next month is our one year wedding anniversary, time flys when you're busy worrying.

Why can't Paris ever look me in the eye or respond when I wait on her? Nothing infuriates me more than when people think they are so much better than you that they don't even have to respond. Money or now money fame or no fame we're all humans and we all deserve respect. It's so unbelievable the difference between people that have a lot of money and celebrities. I wait on people that have more money than imaginable and most times they are down to earth, fun, light hearted and ope minded. But most celebrities I've encountered excluding a select few are always ready to get something for nothing and got to great lengths to treat you with disrespect. It makes me so angry that it's people like these that society obsesses over and watchs their every move. Why are we so concerned with people that don't even have the courtesy to be kind??

So it seems every blue moon I decide to write in this thing. I used to use livejournal to pass time at work, but now I just have way to much to do. I've been interviewing to be an assistant buyer for Bebe clothing, auditioning, working on two movies and working at the club. Today the producer I work for offered me a position with her company that would allow me the freedom to explore acting on the side. This opportunity comes at a weird time where I've found myself ready to settle down with a career in fashion. I'm torn between a full-time 9-5 career and the freedom explore several projects but lacking the stability and growth that a full-time does. I want to buy a home, start a family, yet a small piece of me wants to keep panning for gold in the entertainment industry. I'm leaving it in the hands of the higher power to lead me as I'm stumped.
Here's a photograph of my husband and I with my sister and two cousins on Greek Easter.
My sister and I with my parents and random family members
In other news I had microdermabrasion done today and my face feels amazing. I'm feeling rejuvenated.
That's all for now.

001. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
002. I will respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
003. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
004. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
005. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
Here are the answers from ournest's questions
1. what are the biggest perks of your life/lifestyle?
Being able to work from home and having the creative freedom to take on any project that comes my way. Also working in a certain high profile club two days a week let's me watch US magazine happen live in front of my eyes and bring home insane amounts of cash.
2. biggest drawbacks?
I'm sick ALL the time from working so much. At least twice a month now. Also it can be hard to focus and stressful with I have 50 emails I need to reply to and my phone is ringing off the hook. Plus wanting to start a family with my husband and the fighting the urge to trudge on in the career world.
3. would you rather live in the desert or arctic?
The desert for sure, growing up in California I have no tolerance for the cold. I don't understand the cold or know how to be comfortable in the cold. Heat is my friend.
4. do you subscribe to any magazines?
I used to subscribe to all the gossip magazines but then I found myself feeling guilty for reading other people's business. Now I just watch it and entertain myself that way. Although I may subscribe to Teen Vogue again as they have a small compact magazine and always huge youthful spreads with tons of fashion ideas to steal from. In my house I always have the latest Ikea catalog and the Anthropologie catalog, those are my favorites to flip through.
5. did you go to college? if so what degree did you persue/graduated with?
Yes I went to college without the support of my parents whom believed that college was a waste of money. I left home young worked 3 jobs and put myself all the way through with a BA in theatre arts. I graduated with Steven Spielberg 2002, I have a picture of him walking down the isle.

Current Mood: anxious
So today we decided to try for a baby next December 2007. Maybe earlier but I have two weddings I'll be in next year and I don't want to be the pregnant bridesmaid. I'm excited! I know it's far away and who knows what could happen before then, but it's nice to have some sort of plan. Just knowing that motherhood is close makes me anxious. I can't wait but at the same time I can and should enjoy this time with my husband. I'd like to plan a trip to Greece next summer after Kelly's wedding. We need to get Europe out of our systems before we commit our lives to another.
