Alex: It’s been almost two months since I’ve waxed my eyebrows. That’s a record. They’re starting to look like caterpillars.
Nik: They’re a little unruly.
Alex: Where do you get yours done?  And do you wax them or get them threaded? Haha… the word threaded is fun to say.
Nik: Threaded.  Threadddded.  Thhhhhhhreaded.
Alex: You get them threaded?

I’m obsessed with… IN-Q

Thursday, September 18, 2014 , , , , 0

Alex:  If you have not heard of IN-Q then your life isn’t as complete as it could be. His poetry is my new obsession. His message, his passion, his wisdom is so raw and real. I can’t get enough. I saw him at an Allen Stone concert last year, but I didn’t know who he was. He came out during Allen’s set and performed “85. Everyone in the audience was silent, taking in his words, his knowledge.

Magical Room

Alex: Today was so exciting, Nik!!! I took notes for the first time in the writers’ room. Well, it wasn’t the main room but who cares. The writers split up into two groups and I was pulled into one of them to take notes on character arcs. I loved hearing how they brainstormed ideas. How they took turns talking and giving pitches. It was so cool to see them debate and question each other. Honestly, it was magical. I can’t tell you how hard it was to stay focused. At times my brain would wander… I wanted to play too! It feels incredible to be working somewhere where I want to move up the ladder. I had to bite my tongue so many times because

Life. Death. I’m Awake.

Nik: Every now and then something rocks you to your core. Last week I found out that a woman I know has three weeks left to live. She has been battling breast cancer for four years and kept a beautiful and inspiring blog about it. I’ve been following the blog for a while now. I’d say prayers when she asked for them. I’d silently cheer her on when she shared good news. But Tuesday night I cried. She wrote that she was in the beginning stages of liver failure and was told she has three weeks to live. I burst into tears. I kept thinking there must be something left that she can do. There must be a way to fix it. There must be a way for her to keep living. It isn’t fair. She’s in her thirties and has two young children, but was told by the people who’ve been trying to save her life that she has three weeks left. How is that possible? I cried harder than

What’s Your Favorite?

Alex: Do you have a favorite movie? I feel like I should know this. And while we’re at it, what’s your favorite song? And color? And dessert?
Nik: I actually don’t have a favorite movie.  I love everything Wes Anderson makes.  Everything David O. Russell does.  The Coen Brothers. John Hughes gave me a whole lot of happy.  Christmas Vacation is a holiday tradition. I usually can’t rewatch the movies that impacted me the most because I don’t want to ruin the initial experience.  So no. No favorite movie. Or at least not one. Song… hmm… it changes every day. I always feel pretty good about

Holy shitballs a year has passed? Wtf?! Happy Anniversary amentoramuse!

Nik: Congrats Alex! The first year in LA is the hardest – they say if you make it a year, you’ll make it.
Alex: It’s a little freaky how fast it went. Remember when we first hung out on the rooftop at Hotel Erwin and you wore SPF 50 and a hat?

Love and Learn

Thursday, July 17, 2014 , , , , 0

Alex: Dating in LA sucks balls. I started seeing someone back in January.  It was refreshing to like someone again. From the first day we met we started a conversation that never ended. It was effortless and exciting. One of the first nights we hung out we found a huge tree on San Vicente, climbed to the perfect spot, and shared our first kiss. I was on cloud nine! I felt like I hit the jackpot, winning the lotto of love. Haha, that was so cheesy. Okay back to the story… At first it was all so easy. I would wake up to a ‘good morning’ text. We would talk on the phone for hours. The sex was wonderful. It was all too good to be true. Seriously.  A few months passed and I was left scratching my head wondering what the heck happened.

100 Iconic Photos That Define The 21st Century

Thursday, July 10, 2014 , , , , 0

Alex: Whenever I think about how twenty years ago wasn’t the 80’s, it kind of freaks me out. I found this article that claims to have defined the 21st century in 100 photos. I had to check it out. As I was scrolling through the photos, I was able to reflect on the conflicts, triumphs and world changing moments that we’ve all witnessed and lived through together in the past fourteen years. These images speak for themselves. 
Nik:  Would you go to space if you had the chance?

Nik:  Buy time.

Text from Alex to Nik:  I told them I couldn’t start until the 15th.  Have you heard anything?
