Ladies Who Film – Ep. 30 – June 2, 2016

PROFESSIONALISM. No matter what your job is, or where you work, you will encounter people who challenge your sanity with¬†their unprofessional behavior. That’s going to happen, and sometimes…sometimes all you can do is smile through your frustration and learn from their mistakes. Whether it’s a coworker who fails to do her job to the extent […]

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 goal¬†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 […]

Chatter – Ep. 28 – Apr. 30, 2016

PINK VIRUS FUNDRAISER! This is the last Chatter I’ll be harassing you about this, and I hope this is the last time we need a fundraiser, and I pray that it’s because we finally get to push the vaccine forward and get it to market within my lifetime. We’ve got lives to save, people. Join […]

AM I TOO PRETTY TO DO MY JOB? I was having an online discussion last week, about how I’ve been told to dress more conservatively for certain meetings because I need to be taken more seriously. I’m fairly certain the length of my skirt has nothing to do with the functionality of my brain, and […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 24 – Mar. 30, 2016

BE BOSSY. Don’t be afraid to stand up and make your voice heard, ladies. If you have a solution for a problem, say it. Fix it. Make your project better, even if all the men around you are floundering. Be the rock star I know you to be. Quiet women rarely change the world, my […]

EMBRACING YOUR FEMININITY. Yeah, I said it. Be who you are, whoever that is. If you’re going into a situation where you know you’ll accomplish your goal by presenting yourself (and therefore your project) in a certain way, there is no shame in doing so. So go out there, be who you are and who […]

CREDIT. It’s hard, sometimes, to ask for the credit you deserve, especially when you’re not the sole provider of inspiration, writing, designing, etc. But when you give your time, effort, and love to a project, you should never, EVER be left feeling left out or not given the same credit as someone else. So fight […]

FOCUS. You. Yes, you. Stop trying to do every job on your project. Build a team that will stick by you, do their jobs, and let you do yours. When you don’t give up control over something you can’t handle, the thing you actually are good at will suffer. I’ve seen it firsthand. I’ve made […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 19 – Feb. 24, 2016

LIMITS. Know your own. Know others’. And don’t ever let someone try to make you go beyond yours if it’ll hurt you. Oh, and learn from my mistakes, y’all. I didn’t set limits for something, and I pay for it every day. Yeesh.

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 18 – Feb. 17, 2016

TIME. Listen, I know a lot of people don’t necessarily respect my time once I leave the office. They assume that I can just float around and wait for them to do things, and that I don’t actually need to sleep. Or do laundry. Or go to the grocery store. Or clean my room. But […]
