Life Lately

Hello!

While I’ve been busy scrambling to get my posts together, I thought I’d just do a quick little recap of everything that’s been happening for the last couple of months.

HALLOWEEN

That’s right! Rolling into November with a halloween post, what a good indication of how well I time my posts. In any case, my friends and I went as characters from Inside Out. Our Joy and Sadness absolutely won (I wasn’t committed to dying my hair green!). Later during the night I changed and went as Mabel Pines from one of my favorite cartoons, Gravity Falls. My roommate went as Dipper, and we were adorable, if I do say so myself.

Birthday Shoutout to one of my favorite people :)

We also celebrated the fact that this one is officially not a teenage anymore!

 

El PESCADOR Y LA LLUVIA

 

Santa Monica Sunset

I spent the weekend shooting a short film for my professor (which I will share with you guys as soon as the release event happens). It’s one of a collection of shorts, all centered around the environment. Mine was focused on the drought in central California, and I was lucky enough to get to go to the beach for filming. The sunset was beautiful, and the film looks incredible. Very pleased with how it came out. It’s funny – when I’m filming things I never actually know how they’ll turn out. It’s a lot of guesswork on my part, so whenever I see a finished product it’s like a flash to the past.

RAIN

The weather over here has been steadily changing for the winter season, which is a blessing and a curse at the same time. While it’s wonderful to not feel like my face is melting (thanks, non-airconditioned dorms!), it’s now getting a little bit too cold for comfort. I’m all about sweater weather, but could do without freezing my butt off on the ten minute walk to class. That being said, I woke up a couple of days to this view from my window. There’s something almost fantastical about rain in California. It just never happens, and when it does it’s magical. Waking up and seeing the rain coming down outside felt like a balm.

I was talking to a a friend of mine about being in a creative rut. Since finished with Details (You can check it out HERE), I haven’t had anything creative that I’m looking forward to. It’s probably the worst part about being an artist for me, is the crash landing after the buzz of a performance or exhibition. These last few days I’ve been feeling incredibly lethargic and unmotivated. (It doesn’t help that the midterm slam took a lot of my energy away). I saw this comic and couldn’t stop laughing at how accurate it was. Here’s hoping this slump ends sometime soon.

 

So yes, just a brief catch up on what life has been like lately. I’m hoping to share a couple more of my writing with you guys (The feedback to my poem Monday was phenomenal! Much love to everyone, and be sure to look after yourself). I’m also hoping to post a book review this weekend (Ah, I remember reading fondly). There will also be a post later on the year about El Pescador, so keep an eye on this space.

 

Happy Wednesday!

 

XOXO
