I think the most stressful time of my life was when I was in New York and I didn’t have money to pay my rent. I was going to the mailbox every day waiting for the check to come. When you don’t have money, when you’ve got, like, a jar full of change and each day it’s “Okay, I’ve got enough to get on the train” and “Maybe that check’s gonna come today…” There’s nothing more stressful than your stomach growling. But interestingly enough, some of my best writing came when I was poor and hungry—living off water and oatmeal, mind clear.

If you’re working as a writer, that doesn’t necessarily take you down the role of being a movie star. I said yes too much. I said yes to certain projects that weren’t for me. It was somebody else’s vision and somebody else’s dream and somebody else’s artistic endeavor, but it didn’t necessarily fit in my grand scheme. I was just trying to be around the people who do what I want to do, and you know, I think it takes a little bit more investigation to figure out, does this road actually lead to what I want?

Look at my fluffy boyfriend Chadwick Vader. He absolutely loves attention especially from me. I call him “Chadz,” “Chadzwick, or “Chadzie.” His at his third home and was adopted from the local Petco. I gave  him a toy for Christmas and its his favorite one. Chadz has been getting me through the months since Riley passed away last May and I truly appreciate it.
