"I feel like so many young people can relate to wanting to be paid for using their skills at any opportunity. I'm fresh out of what feels like a year long sprint of internships, classwork, freelance work, networking, and more where more often than not- I was being paid for my time. No one is paying me to go to starbucks on a tuesday morning and sit with tea, dissecting ideas for a short film. And that's exactly why I have to do it."
I blogged about a recent realization that work will not always equal $ and that it’s tough sometimes but okay. If I’m not working on my film work, I won’t get get to the point where I can be paid just off of that. It’s a juggling game for a lot of creatives- practicing their craft and utilizing their time and resources for it or directing their time elsewhere. I took awhile for me to realize but after a conversation with an advisor at school I get it now. Creating has to be JUST for yourself sometimes and that’s a bigger pay off than any networking oop, check, or other benefit could be. I name dropped @tara__catherine because we’re writing a web series right now. A lot of exciting things happen when you give yourself the freedom to create for your own sake. LINK IN BIO
