"Untouched with Lauren" - The Couch Bros

January 31, 2018

Hello fine friends! 

 

As per usual, it has been a while since I've had the time to sit down and type up a post, but I figured it wouldn't take too long to share some fun news! 

 

In early January, (Happy New Year!), I was contacted by another blog out of LA called "The Couch Bros" - essentially people who are trying to inspire others to get off the couch, by telling other peoples stories. These little looks into peoples lives show the day-to-day tasks of people across the globe, as well as their plans for the future. So, I am incredibly honored to be among the many featured on this wonderful site! In the process of writing for the post however, I realized I might as well share it directly on here as well - here's a little closer look into my own life!

 

1/4

 

 

     1. What is something not too many people know about you?

 

         Something that I’ve really just started learning about               myself even, is that I’m an introvert. Through social                 media, as well as in person, I come off as pretty                       outgoing, but I actually have a fair amount of social               anxiety. I think as an actor you get comfortable

         talking to people and “performing”, but sometimes it’s             hard to remember that it shouldn’t be the same thing.             So when I can, I try to take some time out for myself

         to recharge.

 

    2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?

 

        Acting. I’ve gotten pretty fortunate because

        I’m currently pursuing a BFA in Acting, combining

        work with pleasure! As a kid I was always making

        up skits for my friends and I to perform, and I never                really shook that. Aside from acting however, I’m very              big on sewing and needlework. About a year ago I                  started working in the costume studio at my university            for some extra money to put towards tuition, and it                  quickly became an escape from my day to day stresses.            I’ve always been an old soul, so I guess it makes sense            that I’m now even sewing in my free time.

 

   3. What are your goals for the future?

 

       At the moment I’ve got a few! Ultimately I want to be a           full-time working actor in either Chicago, or wherever             performance should take me. I’m very interested in                 exploring acting in the film industry, so I’m hoping this           next year will lend itself to experiences outside of just             stage performance. Eventually, I’d also really love to get           my masters in drama, whether that be in the near future,         or further down the road.

 

  4. What is your definition of success?

 

      I think success for me can be measured in happiness. I’ve        never really equated making money with success, (I am a        theatre major after all), but I think it’s really important          for people to enjoy the life they have. When I am feeling          good about who I am and where I am at, and I know the          people around me feel the same - that’s a pretty                      successful day.

 

  5. Tell us something about the projects you're currently                working on.

 

      I’ve taken a break from performing over the holidays, but        I’m currently preparing for some big auditions coming up        in the next few weeks!
