Examples for VanderV Kara
Well, I have been super busy recently flying between Toronto and Vancouver to film Smallville and Instant Star. Although, my schedule has slacked off slightly due to the American writer's strike. In the down time, I decided it was time for me to let go on the worldwide web. In such a fast-paced life, it's easy to get caught up in the momentum and lose sight of where you are and just live in the moment. So here I am, plugging away on this thing in the wee hours of morning just hoping to find some insight and take time to reflect. I'm so used to being on the go that it seems strange to just sit here and type. Strange and refreshing. I'm looking forward to seeing where this path will lead me and enjoy the friends I make along the way.
At this point in my life, I seem to be reverting back to girlhood. I feel like squeeling and jumping for joy to be so involved in such great acting projects. It's so good to be dedicating myself to this craft after studying psychology and English at University for the past few years and being very limited in my acting pursuits. Ever since I was little and my aunt gave me a copy of My Girl, I've wanted to be an actress. Seeing the emotional range of Veda in that movie seemed like the ultimate dream, and here I am living it. I get to be around two of my passions: acting and music as Sadie Harrison, Jude's sister, on Instant Star, and I also get to revivify a classic comic book hero with Kara, or Supergirl, on Smallville. I am so fortunate to work with amazing people and be surrounded by so many friends and family who keep me true to myself.
Ha. In honor of Valentine's Day, check out the "Superman is a Dickweed" special.
With the Hallmark holiday here, it's enough to bring the sap out of anyone, and I can't help but gush about my new boyfriend, Wentworth Miller. He is constantly sweeping me off my feet with his incessant charm and humor. Not to mention the fact that he's pretty damn cute. He has this theory that I'm going to break his heart by leaving him for a woman, but I can't see that happening anytime in the near future. He keeps me on my toes with crazy, spontaneous dates like the tattoos we got the other night. His is an elaborate angel on his shoulder, and mine is the Chinese character for love. It was the perfect choice to symbolize the moment since the Chinese character for love is similar to the one for friendship, with the lines designed to represent two hands coming together in greeting. It's kind of like Went and me. We met just a few days ago but felt an instant connection. Our relationship has been fast, but sweet. I love spending time with him just doing nothing but sitting and reading, or cuddling in front of the television while he sneezes around my cat. There's nothing like a guy whose willing to sacrifice his own comfort for you.
My older sister, Sarah, jokes that Went is a "godsend" for making me "act like such a girl!" I've always been a tomboy at heart, preferring sports and physical activity of any kind, but don't let that fool you. I love shopping, glamorous photo shoots, and a night out with the girls just as much as kicking the ass out of my punching bag, or playing Wii. It's nice to find someone who gets that. I'm no wilting flower. I can take of myself, but I do appreciate not having to shoulder the burden all of the time. I've finally found a partner, and that's a new and sometimes uncanny feeling.
Notes From the Underground
Flying is so routine as often as we need to travel in this profession. However, I'm still awestruck when watching the plane's tips soar through the clouds. I know they're nothing special, just condensed water vapor in the atmosphere, but still, to my mind they are worlds to be discovered. Maybe it comes from growing up on Care Bears, or it is a slightly childish side-effect of flying on wires in front of green screens and imagining that I am really up in the clouds. Cleansed. Distilled. Evaporated. Re-discovered.
I've been so busy lately, I've barely had a minute to myself, let alone my significant other. What am I doing following this yellow brick road down a rabbit hole? But I'm mixing my metaphors. The truth is, I miss having strong arms around my body. I miss the comforts of home, the smells of cooking, the high-powered laughter of Wii competitions, the feel of his stubble on my neck while watching television. Oh fuck, I just miss him.
The other day, I got to play with a dog for the first time in awhile. I laughed so hard. I even barked. Animals are truly amazing.
