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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

WORK AS THERAPY.   Here’s the thing: this year has started out pretty rough for some us, personally as well as socially and professionally. I get it. It’s been hard. But the world keeps spinning and for some reason, other people expect you to keep going, too. So when you find yourself feeling like the […]

LESSONS LEARNED. As 2015 comes to a close, let’s think about the things that happened and learn what we can from the successes and the failures. Happy New Year, my lovelies. You and I are going to make 2016 magical!

Chatter – Ep. 11 – Dec. 26, 2015

FAMILY. Man, that’s a loaded word right there, isn’t it? Some of us are born with family who we love and who love us. Some of us are closer to those with whom we purposefully surround ourselves. Some of us are lucky enough to have both biological family and friends who have become family. And […]

CAUTIOUSLY OPTIMISTIC. I know, I sound all jaded and angsty when I say that you shouldn’t just run into a situation with your entire self fully invested and your whole soul poured into it. Here’s the thing, though: things fall apart all the time, sometimes before they get started, sometimes in the middle of things, sometimes […]

Ladies Who Film – Ep. 9 – Dec. 16, 2015

ART! It is becoming exceedingly difficult to make money as an independent filmmaker and content creator. Major studios make movies with nine-digit budgets. I make movies with a minor fraction of that amount. But I can tell you this: aside from nerd favorites like things from the MCU and certain Star things, there aren’t a whole […]
