Another month has flown by, and the sharp edge of Autumn’s crisp mornings are in full effect. With new artistic ventures on the horizon, the future is looking bright. Although I have not found any jobs on the education side
Christine: “I don’t think you could carry this character for a full film,” said my mentor.
A couple weeks ago I got my new headshots taken. I remember waking up that morning. My first thought was: did I get enough sleep? Sometimes I’ll jump out of bed on an adrenaline high only to realize a few
Jaylee: I think it’s really the gravity of our true strength that we are afraid of

Sarah: I know that no one holds me to as absurdly high of a standard as I do to myself
Perfectionism: The Destroyer of Worlds I’m two weeks into writing my first feature film screenplay. It’s an idea I’ve been developing for five years with a stunning lack of dedication. I’ve spent far more time pitching the idea to people
