One of my personal goal’s for the year is not exactly for me. It’s for my brother. I want to help him land his first role in a film or television show. Even if it’s just for thirty seconds. And I’m not referring to being an extra in the background.
The guy works super hard and in some ways that hinders him. The high cost of California living forces him to work a lot of hours. Keeping him from being able to make it to auditions, casting calls, etc. He has been taking acting classes for several years now and has done a few small things he and there, but that’s not why he is living in California. He is there to be an actor.
I realize this is a long shot, but the internet has allowed myself to make connections I would never have thought possible. Therefore, I hope to use the internet to help him. Not in a cheesy, youtube, or “like” this way either. He doesn’t need that. The guy has talent and knows his craft. Also, he is part of SAG/AFTRA as well.
Anyways, if anyone has any ties that you may feel could be valuable or friends in the LA area that are there for the same reason, please let me know. Thanks for reading and here’s to making this goal a reality.
So I may have mentioned before that I never really pertain to listening to an album the moment it is released. I just don’t see the point…and although it may put me behind everyone else in the world, it doesn’t really matter because I’ll eventually listen to something if I want to.
Which brings me to discussing the current albums my ears are newly hearing:
Arcade Fire - Reflektor
The Cure - Greatest Hits + Acoustic Versions
Drake - Nothing Was The Same
Jay Z & Kanye West - Watch The Throne
Phoenix - Bankrupt!
Starcadian - Sunset Blood
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City
So far I’ve listened to the full Arcade Fire, Cure, and Phoenix albums and really enjoyed all three!
I am many things. I am a human, female, a twin sister, friend, daughter, girlfriend, and granddaughter. I am an introvert, an artist, designer, and marketing student. I am sweet, caring, polite, emotional, opinionated, activist, unique, weird, and quirky individual. I am an explorer, learner, researcher, and observer.
God has made me human and female. Biology has made me a sister, daughter, and granddaughter. My loyalty has made me a friend. A combination of my personality, appearance, loyalty, and loving nature has made me a girlfriend. My experiences and life events have shaped me into the sweet, caring, emotional, opinionated person that I am.
I know about Math, English, Science, and History. I know about marketing concepts graphic design through schooling and practice. I know about business, psychology, anthropology, Interdisciplinarity, sustainability, and sexuality. I know about music, movies, art, architecture, culture, and places. I know death, pain, happiness, loss, hurt, suffering, love growth, disappointment, struggle tests, stress, and achievement.
I know about Math, English, Science, and History because I went to grade school. I know about marketing, graphic design, business, and psychology because I go to college. I know about music, movies, art, architecture, culture, and more because of society, advertising, and self-discovery. I know about death, pain, happiness, loss, hurt, love, growth, disappointment, struggle, tests, stress, sexuality, and achievement through experience.
I don’t know why I am here. But I presume I am here to make a difference/impact in peoples lives, to make our world a better place, and to ultimately die.
Now tell me, what are you?
"This is the first day of my life, I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you.”
Today marks mine and Gev’s 1 year of togetherness. C:
Images that encompass this past week.
Love, drinks, and ambiance.
And cookie butter.
As much as we claim that the holiday season is about “giving” and being merry, and the birth of Jesus, and family bonding, the Festival of Lights, or whatever it may be that you love so much about the month of December give or take a few weeks before and after…
Majority of our society enjoys it because people like to feel good about themselves and think they’re a good person, because once a year, they decide to volunteer somewhere or donate something or buy someone a shitty or thoughtful gift. It’s an excuse to be a nice person once out of the whole fucking year and everyone, goes apeshit about material possessions, purchasing or gifting.
These are the reasons why I roll my eyes when someone tells me that Christmas or Hanukkah or whatever, is there favorite holiday. If you want to be a good person, be a goddamn good person year-round.
