“SWAMPED”

Ohhhh, the ups and downs of freelance life! Currently, I’m on an up (LITERALLY WRITING THIS ON A PLANE) and it feels great, mostly because I’m actually getting paid to be creative and it is AMAZING. I barely have time to do anything but work and sleep but right now, I don’t really mind.   I always find that my…

“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”…

“REFLECTION”

Hey there! Happy Friday! It has indeed been a while. Personally, I’ve been crazed! It’s true what they say, especially in the freelance world, when it rains, it pours! So it has been figuratively pouring on me in job form for the past 1.5 months. This has been so wonderful, not just for my bank account but also for my…

“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…

“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…

“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…

“MONEY”

Hello from (sunny) LA! Actually, it’s raining today…as it would when I’m in LA…womp womp. Good thing I’m a little bit of a weird weather junkie (<nerd alert). ANYWAY…There are a lot of things that stress me out but as a freelancer, money (or lack there of) is what digs at me the most. First of all, let me say…
