“Start by starting.”Meryl Streep
Welcome to today’s big accomplishment. This website has been sitting here unpublished since May because I couldn’t decide what my professional presence should be like. I still can’t decide, but at least this is a start. I know it’s not official like a dot com, but I ended up going with a dot media address so I could use my first name. I think it’s kind of neat. The process itself wasn’t too bad thanks to years of customizing my Tumblr (let’s not talk about it), but tedious all the same.
I’ve been holed up in my little studio apartment all day and this started as an afternoon mission. But at some point I looked up in a huff. I’d been sitting in the pitch dark for two hours before I realized I could no longer see anything around me. The hyperfocus is real.
This morning I bought business cards (which were also on standby in my Vistaprint cart for months). My previous cards, which I probably still have all ten of, were designed in Photoshop and printed on a sheet of Avery stock. It’s about time to promote myself from production assistant. But alas, I’ve now cancelled the Vistaprint order because I need to include my fancy website, right? When I finally get them I probably won’t use them either. Certainly not 100 which is the minimum order. But I suppose they’re nice to have, plus I got to add foil to make them shiny. It’s all very legit.
I will post an update about my journey to LA soon. I haven’t even told that many people yet, which is yet another task I’ve been putting off for months. Also, I may not be the most likely to update this regularly. Maybe that’s for the best.
Now if only I had a reel…
