a bit about me! Annie Evelyn

Introduction:

I was born on August 3rd, and I live in Toronto with my mom, dad, sister, two cats, dog, and two birds. I live near the beach, where I like to go biking. I am a student at EHSS, studying drama in the specialized arts program. I'm a very artistically inclined individual (hence why my math mark isn't so hot), and art is a really big part of my life. I love writing, singing, and above all else theater. Theater has always been a big part of my life, and has really helped to shape me as a person. I think that my dream job would probably be being a professional clown, but as that is a little un-realistic (there's been a big decline in the industry since this "scary clown" epidemic), I'm looking into persuading communications. My favourite colour is yellow, my favourite season is fall, my favourite drink is lady grey tea, and my favourite animal is cats!

My Favourites:

I love music! But who doesn't? My favourite generas are indie and alternative, but you'll also catch me listening to a musical soundtrack every now and then.

I'm an avid reader. I love stories and storytelling (theater kid much?). I do most of my reading on my commute to and from school, so I'd say I get through about a book a week (thanks to copious subway delays).

I love going to the movies, it's one of my favourite family activities! I love them so much, that I'm currently trying to get a job at my local Cineplex (that's dedication!)

My Music:

From top to bottom: The Elwins, Mother Mother, Jr Jr, Ivory Hours, Bad Bad Hats, The Zolas, The Strokes, The Like, Young Lyre, We Were Evergreen, Pheonix, Said the Whale, West Side Story, Hamilton, Heathers the Musical, and Grease

My Books:

I'm a lover of contemporary and dystopian novels. My favourites are probably 'I'll Give You the Sun' by Jandy Nelson (top right) and 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl' by Jesse Andres (bottom right)

My Movies:

I don't watch too many movies, so I can't say that I have a lot of favourites. I really do love going out to the cinema though (it's that special popcorn smell). I'm a sucker for older films, with my favourite era for films being the 80s.

My trifecta of favourite films: The Labyrinth - 1986 (featuring David Bowie!!!), Heathers - 1988, and West Side Story - 1961

You can purchase a VHS of the classic film for the full effect:

My Hobbies

I love to write. I love working on pieces of creative non-fiction, short stories, articles, and poetry. At the moment I'm looking into studying journalism and communications at the post-secondary level, so written communication is a valuable skill to practice! I'm also a part of Carpanatomy (the school news paper) as a arts and entertainment journalist.

I've been taking vocal lessons for the last two years, and recently completed my level 5 RCM examination, and sang in the Kiwanis Festival. Previously I was in a choir that often sang at the distillery and at City Hall, and before that I did musical theater with various companies. I also do a mean karaoke version of a-ha's Take On Me

When I have some spare time I also love baking! The real dream is to run a bakery, but unfortunately what I make isn't quite that gourmet. It's a really fun thing to do with friends, with my favourite thing to bake being lemon squares!

Theater has always been a huge part of my life. I'm currently in the arts program for drama, and I've been in theater since kindergarten. Although I don't think I'll go in to it as a career, it is something deeply fulfilling and endlessly fun for me! I love working behind the scenes, doing stage managing and production design, as well as being on stage. I spend most of my summers in theater intensives, with my favourite one being a two-week clown intensive.

Past Shows:

These are some of the shows I've been in and worked on. From the top, 'The Burial at Thebes,' 'Romeo and Juliet,' One Act Play Festival: 'The Proud Assasin,' 'Oliver! The Musical,' 'Fame The Musical,' and 'Grease The Musical'

I would also argue that petting my animals is one of my hobbies, because I do it quite often. We've got two cats and a dog, Peanut (white and brown), Dawn (black and brown), and Yo-Bob the dog.

Pets:
