“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…

MOTIVATION

Gotta keep this one short, because I’m on a deadline! You know what they say, “when it rains, it pours,” which is exactly what I was hoping for, job-wise. HURRAY! This has been a good week! I have managed to make some progress on the current draft of my screenplay, as well as do some paid work (and booked another…

“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…

“BRIEF RELIEF”

Happy Friday! Usually Fridays don’t feel any different for me than any other day (because, you know, freelance…) but today feels like a bonafide Friday! This week has been particularly overwhelming. I had some (very) low paid freelance work that is very tedious and takes more time than it is really worth and I just kept getting in my head…

“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”…

“MIXED”

WELL, HELLO, BIG DOLLOP (if you get that reference and we’re not already best friends WHAT ARE WE DOING???) So, here I am, back in NYC, fresh off of my trip to LA, which was both glorious and anxiety inducing (not sure about you, but as much as I love to travel, the act of traveling stresses me out). Throughout my…

NEW BLOG INTRO // “DOUBT”

As you may or may not know, I am moving towards shooting my debut feature film (inspired by CROW) this coming Fall (2017). This is the most exciting/scary thing I have every decided to do, so, as you can imagine, there are a lot of feelings that have been coming up. Most Notably  >>>   You also may or may…
