A Wonderfully Terrible Weekend for AHTAN

Hi everybody,
So this past week has been super awesome. I’ve been working as a Best Boy /Dolly Grip on a TV series pilot out @ UCLA, as well as Dollying for an incredibly interesting documentary looking into women in the field of cinematography. I’ve also got 4 or 5 more gigs locked down in the next couple of weeks. On top of all of that, I was working on something extra special for this week’s episode of AHTAN, however Premiere Pro decided to corrupt that entire project at 2:30 am last night. Therefore, I chose to postpone that release until WEDNESDAY, MAY 25th, in addition to next week’s regular Sunday release. So look out for that to drop, because I’m gonna be changing up the game!

In the meantime, watch this week’s video (https://youtu.be/-FuU5Au0AT8) and don’t forget to come back on Wednesday! Thanks!

It’s Been Anything But Lazy

Trying to settle in to LA is like the perfect stretch, you gotta put in a little work and get a little uncomfortable. But how will I know when I’ve begun to BE an LA citizen? Who knows… Guess I just have to try and experience everything West Coast life has to offer.

Take a look at this week’s “Talks About Nothing” HERE (https://youtu.be/HavC1j64yQ8) and SUBSCRIBE to my channel to watch next week’s episode, where I talk about some of the lessons I’ve learned in Cali already… Ooops, I mean, where I talk about nothing. Really.

Journey Update

Hey everyone, thought I’d log my journey with a little travel music and multiple bathroom stops. Didn’t realize how exhausting driving actually is, because I was completely worn by the time I showed up at Kyle’s for the weekend in CO.

Only 16 hours left to drive, so help me out by watching this week’s “Talks About Nothing” HERE (https://youtu.be/SMF0GNMLrXw) and SUBSCRIBING to my channel!

Moving Forward

I have just spent 15 minutes online, looking through quotes about family, moving, and traveling, all to find something that expresses my feelings towards venturing away from home. Something to go along with my new favorite picture of Poppi and Willow, because I know how much I will miss them. Then I had a realization. That’s the wrong way to approach this. My life, up until this point has been dominated by consumption. I have created some media, but for the past 23 years I’ve functioned as a consumer. It’s challenging not to be a consumer in this social media age.

However, those people are not me. J.R.R. Tolkien is a genius in many things, but he has never occupied my mind.  Neil Armstrong broke his bonds with earth, but doesn’t know the bonds I share with my own family. Facebook knows me only as well as I do. This move is an opportunity, not just to explore more of the country, but to explore more of myself. To find my unique self.

Then what do I think of moving away? I’m afraid of being so far from all of the people that I have shared my journey with so far. Afraid of losing my family, afraid of failing and not knowing where to turn. When I think of everything that I will miss by being 2,500 miles away, I’m overcome with loss. But my memories with my wonderfully supportive family will not be lessened by distance. I can never forget where I came from. I love each of them, and that cannot be reversed by the mile. Each inch westward I will push to make them proud.  I want to show my Poppi, Mimi, Dad, Mom, Sisters, my whole family what it is that I can do. What it is that I love.  But, first, I have to find out what I can do.

Each new major life choice is not only accompanied by repercussions, but by untold opportunity for wonderful adventures. Every unexplored road houses unfamiliar experiences. This is immeasurably exciting to me. The freedom to explore and mold myself in a way that I have never been capable. So I fling myself into the abyss of unknowing. Here I come, future. Watch out.
