Down But Not Out

I am so glad that so many have read my blog posts over at www.GeekGirlsRising.com. Writing here has been a great release for me because  I don’t have a filter, and I have found like-minded role models who are truth speakers in this journey. I don’t generally see, or speak to a lot of people these days in person.

Why? Well because on February 1st, leaving the cafeteria at the Film School I was attending, I fell on a patch of Ice so hard that I tore three ligaments in my knee. It’s really hard to tear your ACl/MCL and PCL at the same time. Usually people who get thrown off motorcycles get that type of injury. I have done hand to hand combat and skateboarding and played hockey but I’ve never been injured like this. I was even in denial about how serious the injury was, insisting that I didn’t have to leave school.

I did have to leave school, and have surgery. I can’t work on any movie or TV set. For a few months, I couldn’t even sit on this chair behind my desk to use a computer. But I have been rehabbing my knee like I am a professional athlete. I am more determined than ever. I want to work as an editor, in post production, in science fiction and action/thriller Television and movies– and I want to do it in Vancouver. This is a genre where women generally don’t exist, but I don’t care. I have so many more experiences than most people do in my almost 35 years on this planet.  Including raising a child, when I was child myself who will coincidentally be going to college at the same time as I am. To be an excellent editor, proper education is a must. I am hoping to attend The University of British Columbia in Vancouver. But I am game to pay my dues the usual way (The PA way) in Vancouver, if I could just get there. Getting the things I need together to make this happen cannot be as difficult as some of the stuff I have to go through just to be alive at this moment. Funding, equipment, support, a mentor whatever.

So thanks for to everyone who reads, and has reached out and I really will be pushing out some information about podcasts soon and I also will be setting up some crowdfunding for tuition and a camera rig set up for 4k shooting and a computer that is fast enough to edit it.

If it is within your ability to help, great, if not. Just know, I’m down. But I’m not out.

Catcher In The Lie

Reality is a lie. Lying, therefore, makes this world go around. Accept it. Embrace it. Understand it fully. And most importantly, lie well and for all the right reasons.
