Collis P. Huntington

I’ve been watching a bunch of news recently. It seems to be a habit I formed during the presidential primaries. Back then I’d follow which candidate said what and how the eight zillion pundits thought that “changed the game.” Back then, I was busy rooting for my candidate, so at least moments of the news […]

Returning to the Gate

A few days ago I found myself in a familiar position—sitting aboard a Southwest flight. I had just spent a few days in Reno at the CA Association of Directors of Activities Convention with amazing educators who have dedicated their lives to empowering teens. It’s always an exciting and rewarding event. Still, I was looking […]

Expect the Unexpected

I’m sitting in my hotel room in Rockford, IL counting down my departure to a friend’s wedding. I thoroughly enjoyed sleeping in this morning (although I technically woke up about the same time in California), but nonetheless, it is nice when the clock says it’s 10am and you are just rolling out of bed.

It’s always a really fun event. I meet so many of these talented individuals throughout the year, and I really enjoy the chance […]

Take the Note

At the end of each one of our improvised shows, we gather together for notes. I recall doing this regularly back when I performed in musicals during high school, but that environment was different as we performed a “blocked” or planned show. CSz is different in the sense that we never really repeat anything. Yes, […]

Pulling to the Side of the Road

Today I received my second speeding ticket of the year. I really couldn’t believe it–mainly because if you asked me in January I would have told you I was a perfect driver having never been in an accident or received a ticket while behind the wheel. My first ticket came back in March when I […]
