Chatter – Ep. 29 – June 3, 2016

GRACE. It’s super easy to get swept away by the emotion of a situation, to allow yourself to embrace the first reaction. But I’m working on thinking before reacting out loud in front of other people – because, really, it’s just this moment that’s terrible/sad/stressful/frustrating. The next moment, and the one after, can be better […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 29 – May 25, 2016

DREAMS. Firstly, I’M BACK, PEOPLE! Most importantly, though, this week’s episode is all about coping. Sometimes you have a crush that isn’t reciprocated, sometimes you have a plan to reach a goalĀ and it doesn’t work out the way you expected, sometimes you think you know your path and you hit an insurmountable roadblock. So deal […]

PERMISSION. It’s time we all give ourselves permission to be happy, to put ourselves first, to do what we want and need, TO SAY NO. One thing I’ve learned in the past week is that it is vital to know your limits, to practice self-care, and to allow yourself to put your needs above the […]

Chatter – Ep. 25 – Apr. 2, 2016

PERFECT. I don’t mean model-skinny, or super rich, or anything like that. I mean…perfect. Perfectly true to who you are in your core. Perfectly authentic to your realĀ self. Perfectly, exactly where you are in your journey toward self-realization. Whoever you are in any moment of living authentically, is perfect. So don’t let anyone shake that […]

EX-RELATIONSHIPS. Not ex-partners, that’s way too much to talk about in half an hour. But ex-relationships, the baggage they create, mourning their deaths, the lessons you learn from them, and the pieces of them you carry with you in the future…yeah, there’s something to talk about. Maybe the key isn’t to avoid having baggage, or […]

Chatter – Ep. 21 – Mar. 5, 2016

ADVENTURE. I’ve discovered, over the course of my varied and often turbulent dating life, that learning and growing together is imperative to building a healthy and long-lasting relationship. But this isn’t just about romantic love. The need for adventure and shared experiences extends to other types of relationships, and that has never been more apparent […]

CREATIVITY. My dad says that there’s a solution to everything, you just need to be creative. He’s right. I don’t just mean you should be creative and paint or write or draw or sculpt. I mean, be creative in solving problems. Think of ways to get what you want/need/desire/require, because there’s a way – even […]

Chatter – Ep. 17 – Feb. 6, 2016

KINDNESS. I’ve been meeting a lot of people for work lately, and the common thread that runs through each of these conversations is kindness…or the lack thereof. Some of the people I meet rise above their situations, some need a little help. But all of them could’ve benefited from having the support of just one […]

Chatter – Ep. 16 – Jan. 30, 2016

COMPROMISE. Successful human interaction on any level – romantic, platonic, or otherwise – requires a certain amount of compromise and sacrifice. But there are limits. There need to be limits. You can’t give up everything you are and everything you want just to please someone else. So that’s what today’s podcast is all about: knowing […]

Chatter – Ep. 15 – Jan. 23, 2015

Okay, no heading today. This episode is just two girls talking about men, drinking, and food. We talk about food a lot because…well, let’s be honest, two cis girls talking about the men they’ve known is far less interesting than two nerdy humans talking about food. And beyond all else, we are very nerdy humans […]
