Begin the Beguine



I had to start this blog off with something a little Jazzy, a little fun, and completely out of the ordinary. 

I am completely OBSESSED with the tiny house movement. From houses on tiny trailers that are less than 150 square feet, to converted buses, to Airstream trailers, and restored vintage RVs, I love them all.

This is the very beginning of my journey into this world. I've been reading blogs and newsletters, drooling over photos, and trying to figure out the whole toilet situation in these things. (Honestly, the toilet issue is what I'm most concerned about.)

I am probably not the only one who is going to be posting here, but I'll let the others introduce themselves if they decide to write anything here.

About me: I am a 30 year old Christian actress and photographer. I am an only child and a bit of a pack rat. Up until recently, I was working an office job. I really liked the people there, but the job itself was not my cup of tea. Even though I have a degree in business, I am a very creative, artsy person, and do not do well in an office setting (I am by no means saying that artsy people can't work in offices, just that I can't). Unfortunately, as much as I was doing my work, and trying to make the best of it, my boss could see that I wasn't happy, and let me go. So now, I'm officially unemployed, trying to make the acting and photography work for me. I'm also about to try my hand at voice-overs and recording audiobooks.  Basically, I do a bit of everything, but I'm a performer at heart.

This is my current plan:
  1. Buy a bus from The British Bus Company
  2. Convert it to a livable situation
  3. Find a place to park the thing!
 Not necessarily in that order....

This whole thing is going to be a process. I (we) have to figure out everything from parking, to plumbing, to electrical (solar?), to heating (is it even necessary here in LA?), decor, to that stupid toilet issue (composting toilet, vs. RV toilet, vs. incinerating toilet, vs. other??)!!

Here we go!!
