Anonymous said: what's bothering you dear? :(
My inability to be productive in the way that I’d want to be. My work shifts don’t allow me the free time nor energy to do what I want to do. Instead, I have to spend that time resting for the next day’s work.
I don’t have the luxury of free time to feed my urge to create you see. Whenever I’m not taking photos, or making music, or drawing, or photoshopping, or writing, I sink into an emotional recession. It’s not so much “sad” or “depressed”. For lack of a better word, I’m “deprived”.
List of things I want:
-A peer who can write as eloquently as some of the bloggers I follow.
-My fucking grant.
-Free time on weekends to work on projects.
-To quit my restaurant job and get another office job.
-An able crew and cast.
-Not to be so socially and self aware.
-To have the luxury of taking photos and filming when I want.
-To be around people that aren’t so idle and unresponsive.
-My own place.
-To be able to celebrate Janice’s birthday with her.
-Peers that can actually provide some not-so-predictable responses to the intrinsic questions I bring up.
-Time to work out.
List of things I need:
-Peace of mind.

Hellooo dear anon! :D
Okay, let’s get something straight before I answer this question. I can’t NOT sound like a bigoted, pompous ass douche if I answer this question, and also this is just my personal bias so do not assume anything beyond that. Furthermore, I AM entitled to my own preferences. They’re not going to fit with everyone else’s standards so please try to understand.
- Artistically/literately inclined. Art, music, writing, stuff in that nature. People of this nature also tend to be more understanding of emotions and abstract questions.
- I have heavy bias towards Asians but that doesn’t mean I’ve only dated Asians. I’ve dated a Bengali girl, and a Caucasian girl before.
- Sarcastic. Sarcastic people are generally more witty and are much more engaging in conversations when they feel like talking.and I love chatting with sarcastic people. Sarcasm is also a “heightened” sense of social interaction but I’m too lazy to go into this in detail.
- Willingness to communicate. Seriously, it’s the biggest thing to consider.
Everything else I would like in a girl is kind of nitpicky because they’re full of ifs, maybes and buts.
-Hard work and sacrifices are justifiable if it means being able to live my dream.
-People fail all the time in the film/photography industry for several reasons. Identify those reasons and make sure you don’t do the same.
-Know what your short term and long term goals are. 2 weeks from now, and 4 years from now.
-Research EVERYTHING and never limit yourself to what you think you need to know. How to run a company, how to photoshop, media studies and manipulation, music theory, storytelling theory, color theory, use of space in images, film pacing, whatever,
-Expand your skill set. Photography and film are only the beginning and it’s better to have a large repertoire of talents anyways. Let’s push for 2D design, animation, writing, logo design, and music.
-Don’t worry about what you’re missing out on right at this instance. This summer is going to be just as fleeting and forgettable as the last by September.
-Write down and/or save any piece of insight or information you feel you can use in the future.
-Fuck the haters. Prove em wrong.
-Don’t let your social and self over-awareness get the better of you. Dare to be something more.
-Don’t you fucking dare think that you are too young to be pursuing something this ambitious. The longer you wait, the more saturated the industry is going to become.
