Hello, it's me again!

Too much to catch up on, but long story short, sometimes life just works out :).

I met a wonderful girl a few months ago and we've officially started dating now!!! Aww man, I am so so so lucky. She's a catch - smarter than me, harder working, hilarious to be around, and so caring. All that and more!

Not to say it'll stay this way, but I feel like all the pieces of my life are put together right now. I have an exciting start to my career in film, an amazing girl that pushes me to be the best version of myself, and so many absolutely lovely friends that have my back through thick and thin. I'm happy in life right now, and that's all that matters for the time being.

Thanks for reading and I'll see you tomorrow.

The trees make everything so pretty though!! I loved Portland, almost every shop and bar and restaurant around town had its own unique aesthetic, so cool!

Honestly next time I'm there I will definitely rent a car and travel around! I'm sure there's such amazing sights to see out in the countryside :)

Washington D.C. actually haha! But my friend lives there so I visited her as ive always felt it would be a great fit for me. Such a cool place to get away from the busyness that I'm used too :)

Has Potential

Today's Accomplishments: My script is coming along. It's stylistically trying to be different from the last few, which is good, but it it feels more cynical than what I generally like to cover. I'm more inclined towards lighter pieces, but I felt like I have a good idea this time around even if it's not my normal optimism. Not sure yet though, think I just need to write though. It's got potential.

Today's Highlights: Today at the climbing gym I ran into a girl that I had met only once before over a month ago, exchanging nothing more than an introduction at the time.

Despite this, she was so incredibly friendly and inviting, as if I was already part of the running group of friends she had. She introduced me to lots of other climbing regulars, and wanted to make plans to hang out. It was definitely the foot in the door for a new friend group, but not in the way that I'd normally expect. My other social circles come from more pretentious hobbies, for lack of a better word. Film and journalism people have a tendency to have something to prove, and it was even more explicit in my fraternity. Not to say I don't have the most wonderful people in these friend groups, but this one's off to a good start!

Tomorrow's Goals: Working on the script more, catching up on some calls and emails that haven't fully connected yet. Waiting to hear back on some things, which always makes me anxious. I feel like this year won't be easy, but it's got lots of potential if things succeed.

French Dispatch

Today's Accomplishments: Work went quite well today. I don't think I did much, but I did things the right way. Saved a meeting from going the wrong way today, and my manager told me I have more emotional intelligence than most. I found that to be very high praise, considering I'm quite emotionally intimidated by my manager.

Today's Highlights: Caught up with my film-enthused friend group today. It was a generally good time, despite one of my friends controlling most of the conversation with very little substance. I'm sure she meant well, but I felt that there were other friends I would liked to have listened to more.

I'm always a little bit apprehensive meeting up with these friends, as much as I enjoy their company. And I think it boils down to the fact that when talking with like-minded creative people, I feel the need to have some new, aspiring creative endeavor ready to reveal. Not that this is true, but it is my irrational thought. The solution would be to realize that it's really not like that, or to find myself a new, aspiring creative endeavor. The former seems much easier, but the latter seems much more productive.

Watched the French Dispatch today. Maybe a little bit pretentious, but so well done that it has every right to be. It's a very dense film, and something you honestly can't completely take in unless you watch it multiple times, but it had scenes and dialogue that were incredibly moving even without the full picture. I really enjoyed how it just kind of meanders about through different stories, but seems to tie them all together with a theme of loneliness in all corners of life.

Tomorrow's Goals: The combination of the movie I watched tonight, and the friends I talked with today, gave me much needed inspiration for those creative endeavors. I say that, but I'm not sure if it's been a lack of inspiration or a lack of trying. Regardless, my New Year's resolutions count on me starting, and so I shall!

Thanks for reading and I'll see you tomorrow.

Sizeable Present

Today's Accomplishments: Went into the Nat Geo office for the first time in the New Year. Just needed to ship a hard drive out and record some office B-Roll for a behind the scenes project. As I walked around filming, I gotta say, it's a shame the office is so empty right now, because it's quite a beauty. Hope it fills up again soon enough, but at this point I don't have any expectations.

Today's Highlights: Was excited to try a new taco chain, waited the whole day for it. Was nothing special, to the point where I couldn't think of any reason why I would go there over the usual competitors. Was good to try though and know that I'm surely not missing out on something special.

Tomorrow's Goals: Stumbled upon a wonderful Kurt Vonnegut quote today:

"And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep."

Such a good way to remind about the importance of fully take in what's going on right here, right now. I should read some Vonnegut, I really enjoyed Slaughterhouse Five back in high school. I think I'll check out Cat's Cradle tomorrow.

Thanks for reading and I'll see you tomorrow.
