call it quits and move on

quitting isn't a bad thing. i've been a firm believer in seeing things through however calling it quits can save you time, energy, and frustration. it's important to evaluate what you're doing and to what end. i bring this up as i've called it quits with my annoyingly painful job as a cocktail girl. yes! a load has been lifted! it's amazing how this cosmic world works. i find myself thinking...ok. what's next? what do i want. and i'm finally putting it out there and i really want to create work that speaks to millions. more specifically i want to and will be creating films. good thing for me i've been having a go with these cyber competitions. and it helps that i have photography and acting in my back pocket. i am still very passionate about my love for the two and now filming can bridge the two loves i've kept separate for so long. very excited about this public declaration!
and to catch ya'll up to speed i've started my job at the studio and it's going great! i'm still in training and i'm actually exploring all aspects of work there to make sure whatever position i take is the right fit. i was hired with the intention of studio managing but with all my expertise and background there might be a better fit. i have no idea yet as this is my first job at a studio so i'm just excited to be inspired.
speaking of inspiration..i found this amazingly rad director/writer who is responsible for the genius that is Yelling to the Sky, Victoria Mahoney. immediately after watching the trailer i imdb'd her and read about her amazing journey. it gives me that extra nudge to follow my gut. being in the pj's, a new city, no friends, starting from scratch, hustlin' can get dim but then i find rays of hope and she's one of them.

so imma go eat now then get back to the steady hustle that is new york :)
