Call Me, Elon Musk.

Monday, February 13, 2017


Space just gets me.
The universe gets me.
I could live on Mars.
I would be honored to go there.
Call me, Elon Musk.

Dear Universe,

Some days I want to escape from here. I believe we are so tiny and insignificant. We are just a speck in this vast universe. I also believe in alternate universes, so there's a version of me out there with a completely different experience. Therefore, I feel thankful. I may not have certain things in my life in this universe, but maybe in an alternate reality, I have an abundance in that certain thing. How beautifully reassuring is that? Just think about it.

Yes, I'm a poet by night. Today is known to some as "Desperation Day". You know, I'm not desperate to meet a man or fall in love or whatever... but I would be quite happy to meet Elon Musk or Neil deGrasse Tyson. My heroes. And Roger Federer, of course. And Stephen Hawking and Russell Brand. And then Woody Allen. Man crushing to the max.

💌 It's February 13th, although it's "Desperation Day", I'm feeling super blessed by my "singledom". I feel so much love and gratitude for the amazing people in my life, the amazing things that happen to me on a daily basis, I have my limbs, my sight, ability to hear, sense of smell and taste. Life is sweet! I feel gratitude for my ability to laugh and cry and feel. I'm riding this emotional roller coaster of life and I'm acutely aware of this journey. I have passion, drive and motivation to be this version of myself. I had a crazy January, but February is a new month to be a better version of myself. Tomorrow is a new day. So what that it's Valentine's Day?! Tomorrow is going to be awesome, regardless of my relationship status.

P.S. I'll be wearing black tomorrow, like the color of my soul! Have a beautiful day/evening wherever you are in the universe!

Much Love and Always,

How To Combat Shyness

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Russell Brand has rapidly become a great source of information and inspiration for me. I've always appreciated his outlook and sense of humor as a standup comedian, and he has always been very intuitive and fascinating. He is an articulate, eloquent and well informed individual, who happens to have had a crazy past. But that is why I have such a huge admiration for him, because he really turned his life around. That's when you have to acknowledge someone's desire and motivation to get back on their feet and make their life better.

Russell may come across as loud, brash and vulgar, but that's part of his on stage persona. He's also very insightful, introspective and observant about the world and its happenings. Some people brush him off as a news source, but I would stand up for The Trews as a great resource. He also responds to his viewers' questions and gives thoughtful advice and responses. I truly admire him and I hope to meet him one day, just to say "thank you, you are wonderful."

On a side note, it's funny that this episode's first question is "how to combat shyness?", because my first short film that I wrote and directed is called Shyness. It's still in post production and I have every intention of finishing the film this year. Luckily, I work in an environment that has taught me how to finish a film (amazing!), so I will absolutely finish it. No excuses. And that's a story for another time.

Now go out there and combat your shyness, because shyness is nice and shyness can stop you, from doing all the things in life you'd like to.

Try Everything

Saturday, February 4, 2017

I believe that is important to be brave, courageous, fearless, unfortunately it is hard to be those things on a regular basis. Therefore, it is my daily mission to work on being optimistic and hopeful. I appreciate Disney for giving us Zootopia and I love the character of Judy Hopps, although I find some parts of the story to be weak and questionable. Nevertheless, I love an independent, hardworking, tough female character and Judy was all those things and more. Oh yeah and there was Nick Wilde, the fox too.

Shakira has such an empowering presence and voice. This song truly inspires me and makes me not want to give up... ever. Thank you for the encouragement and message behind this amazing song. Don't give up!

I won't give up, no, I won't give in till I reach the end and then I'll start again. 
No I won't leave, I wanna try everything. I wanna try even though I could fail.
