KILLING THE LIE | I NEED TO DO WHAT SHE’S DOING

Often when teaching drama to little people, one of the things I commonly hear coming out of their mouths is: “They copied us!” Meaning another group of actors were possibly inspired by what they were doing, or did in drama class that was seen as successful, and ended up doing something similar in order to achieve similar results. I often find myself saying : “See it as a compliment if someone was inspired by your idea!” But this line of thought got me thinking recently, how as adults sometimes we… Read More

ONLINE HONESTY | INTERESTING PEOPLE YOU FIND ONLINE

I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I come across someone online who says something rather odd, ignorant, or extremely offensive I almost immediately giggle out of shock (my defense-slash-coping mechanism, I guess – hysterical laughter) then I think to myself : “Some people shouldn’t be allowed online, and shouldn’t be allowed to access the internet or wifi all together for the good of mankind.

KILLING THE LIE | WOMEN ENCOURAGE RAPE CULTURE

You would have to be living under some sort of social media rock to not know how we are finally starting an open online discussion about rape, and rape culture at large. It’s an uncomfortable conversation to have, but one that is long overdue! I was a bit nervous to touch on this sensitive topic because: A) I know this is a very personal and sensitive topic for those that have been effected by rape culture personally, and B) As a mom who is raising a boy I know that we… Read More

KILLING THE LIE | SHE IS MY COMPETITION

Last week I wrote a post entitled : ” The lies we believe as women.” I redrafted that post about a million times, as it started off as a “mini post”, then turned into a novel, then went back to simple quick easy read. But in true Cass style, I need to : elaborate more, confront, and discuss each “lie” that we believe to be true – until that lie dies, and together we move forward as empowered confident women. Hence, the series: “Killing the lie” will feature every Monday –… Read More
