Have you ever told someone what you do and suddenly felt insecure about it? You know the feeling that makes you question who you are? Moving forces you to tell people who you are. Constantly. Every time you meet someone the question of “What do you do?” eventually comes up and every time I say […]Read more "I Feel Like A Fraud"
We live in a world inundated with “creatives.” Everywhere you look there is another “photographer” on Instagram, another “filmmaker” on Vimeo, and another “storyteller” who is all about capturing moments. At least twice a week I say to myself, “Everyone is a creative these days,” and it is followed by me rolling my eyes back […]Read more "Room For One More"
In light of what we’ve experienced in the past week, we’ve been left wondering. Wondering, why all of the murder? Why all of the hurt? Why all of the pain? Why all of the injustice and why isn’t it getting any better? Day one: father murdered. Day two: boyfriend murdered. Day three: cops murdered. And […]Read more "Is Love Enough?"

Guess who’s back, back again? #TGFTS back. Tell a friend. Please. Tell a friend. Snap it. Gram it. Share it. Retweet it. Let the world know we’re back. Did I already say please? Okay cool. It’s always a good start when you just start asking people for things right? No context. No reason why. Just […]Read more "BACK AT IT AGAIN"
I love the work that I do – personally and professionally. All the work I’ve done with Thank God for the Summertime has given me an opportunity to learn so much about myself and coincidentally about the world around me. Slowly but surely, I’ve been learning what works and what doesn’t work in the blogging […]Read more "Let Your Work Move You"
I had something great planned for today’s post, but it just wasn’t working. It still isn’t working really. I’ve tried to work it so many different ways. I’ve been thinking about it for weeks and today was the day it should’ve come out, but it isn’t. It won’t come out today because it just isn’t […]Read more "When Things Don’t Come Together"
Before writing everyday, I used to come up with a title to anything I was writing before starting. Every single time. If I didn’t have a title, I couldn’t work on it. It couldn’t be just any title either; it had to be a creative and engaging title. My title problem made working on essays […]Read more "(Insert Title Here)"
