“DEFENSE”

Hey strangers! I haven’t had time to blog for the past few weeks, not sure if you’ve noticed. Don’t really have time today either but I wanted to at least put up something… This post isn’t completely in line with what I usually write about but I witnessed something strange happen on the subway last night and wrote a poem/short…

“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…

“THROUGH THE ROUGH”

Today feels like a happy Friday! This was a pretty good week. I wrote almost every day and am now halfway through the 3rd act of my screenplay! Basically, the end is in sight and I am thrilled about it, not to mention this draft (#13) feels like the real deal. I mean, it will definitely continue to be revised…

“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…

“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”…
