“ASHES”

I haven’t blogged in a while and I’m supposed to be writing right now, but instead I’m writing this.   I am choosing to feel empowered by the showing of women standing together…of no longer letting our rapists, assaulters and harassers control us. A trauma doesn’t just go away but the solidarity I feel, with my fellow women, is more…

“FATE DUST”

HEY! HAPPY FRIDAY! It has been a week! Firstly, some good news in feature film land! As you may or may not know I have been on the hunt for a producing partner for my film and though I cannot yet say that I have found that person, I feel like I have made some progress! One of the “reach”…

“THE LITTLE THINGS”

And just like that, it’s summer! (Well not officially but it’s been 90 degrees the past few days in NYC and if I leave home without my sweat rag, things get ugly.) THE LITTLE THINGS // 5.19.17 It’s that moment when, You can’t control your body, Grin and jump for joy. Feeling like a kid, “Thinking” rests in the back…

“FEAR”

What up, Friday people? You may or may not have noticed that I did not blog last week. I’ll be honest, there were just not enough hours in the day and I didn’t plan well enough ahead. I’d like to believe I had a good excuse because I was finishing up pre-production for a new short film (that we shot…

“SPRING”

Spring is here and it’s the best! Though it’s cloudy today it has been so nice out and the weather forecast for next week looks lovely. I always want to pretend I’m not affected by seasonal depression but it’s crazy how much the warmer temperatures and longer sunlight do affect my mood positively.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all…

“EXHAUSTED”

OMG it’s Friday (again) already! It is my 10th week in a row doing this blog and it’s the first time that it has felt like work. It was a really intense week on this job (long hours that were both mentally and physically challenging) and all I want to do today is chill. That being said I woke up…

“HEAVY”

Running late today because I had a (kind of intense) job all week (yay for jobs!). To be honest I have been too busy this week to really think about anything other than the job I was on but this post will scratch the surface of something that has managed to come up despite the lack of brain space. Do…

“BEFORE/AFTER”

This week started off really rough. BEFORE // 3.16.17 Sometimes I think I’m not meant to be alive. I’m not a functioning member of society. Sometimes I have trouble functioning. I can’t force my lazy self to do things I don’t want, to do, anything. I wrote this poem in the midst of a “small” mental breakdown. I was getting…

“OVERWHELMED”

Oh my goodness, it’s Friday again. I’m going to start this one off with something positive (because sometimes I need a reminder). This week I had the opportunity to meet with multiple people to gather their wisdom about making their first features and now my plan has legitimately started to form. Like, I know the first steps that I need…

“GUILTY”

Hello! Thanks for coming! I’m going to break my usual format and start with the poem this time… GUILTY // 2.28.17 I can’t figure out how to make it work. How to work and have work not feel like what it is. Spoiled maybe. Privileged, definitely. Broke as fuck, anyway. Fact: Life is too short but continuing without “almighty paper”…
