Hey everyone! Sorry once again for being MIA lately! This semester has been crazy and my work load has gotten the best of me! I am interning for the Phoenix Film Festival this semester and the festival is in full swing right now. It started last Thursday and ends this Thursday. It was been a really great experience to be apart of, and it has made me really excited to pursue planning special events similar to that in the future! I have gotten to meet so many wonderful people this weekend/week, and it has made me really interested in the independent film world! I am going to post some of the links to the films I have seen, and some photos from the festival, so keep an eye out for that!
I promise I wont abandon you again

Getting out of my comfort zone is something I have been working on a lot in the past year or so. I have realized that life can really pass you by, especially opportunities if you don’t take risks, fail often, and put yourself out there. It can be really hard to push yourself out of your comfort zone, but like this says, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” You will learn more that way than anyway else, and you will be closer to success, I guarantee it! I am going forward in my life trying to live this way more often! You should too!

I found this list of “How to Feel Miserable as an Artist” and I think it is very relateable and realistic of how all artists feel. Whether you are a painter, or even an actress, there are so many things that can ruin the creative experience that we need to make sure we are aware of in order to get the most out of what we do.

In the day and age we live in, the definition of artwork that we commonly hold needs to be expanded. There are some very cool pieces of art that aren’t rendered, or film, but in .gif form. This is an example of just that. I really love this gif and it made me think about how there are so many different ways to create an image now-a-days. An image like this wouldn’t have been possible not too long ago, or at least in the same way that it is now!

This is such a stunning piece of art, and it is created using such an unconventional “canvas” of sorts! You never see floppy disks anymore, especially in pieces of art! Such an obsolete and worthless object is transformed into a piece of beauty in this painting by Nick Gentry. He has many breathtaking mixed media pieces that you should take a look at (http://www.nickgentry.com/).
That’s one thing I love about art, it changes the way you look at common things in the world!

I have had a bad case of wanderlust since I was about 10 years old. My family never really got the chance to travel as I was growing up, so I never got the opportunity to see much of the US let alone the world! I have been daydreaming about seeing far off places for as long as I can remember, and so far it has yet to become a reality. The biggest step I have made was moving to Arizona for school! haha!
As I am making plans for the future, I am getting a new intense wave of wanderlust. I keep thinking, how am I supposed to make plans for my career if I don’t even know where I want to live for the rest of my life yet?? This has made me determined to see as many new places as I can before I graduate! I am a broke college student, so it may be difficult but it is my current goal. I want to see New York City, LA, Seattle, and Chicago. And it almost goes without saying that I would die to see any of Europe (London, Paris, or Rome in particular). Hopefully before I graduate I will be able to participate in a study abroad program through my university. It would be such an amazing experience to have!
Now I just have to work on making these dreams a reality!

I thought this was clever! It makes me think of the saying “the pen is mightier than the sword.”
Choose your weapon carefully, and happy creating!

As some of you might know, one of the many things I hope to do in my life is to design window displays. There are endless possibilities for them, and I think that original creative ideas can be powerfully executed! I came across this photo that appears to be part of a window display that I absolutely love! I unfortunately can’t find the source for this so if you know what it is or where this came from please leave a comment to let me know!
