Yesterday, as I fell asleep for 5 hours midst of the day, I had to wrote 20 pages of screenplay for the pilot episode in four hours! What a speed! I hope it will work out well for the director and as well as the TV Channel. Today the director will show this new screenplay to the producer and the rest of it is wait for an answer.
Well, it was a horrific week with lots of toothache, headache, tooth infection, fever, sleepless nights, lots of painkillers, 4 different antibiotics in a row, severe diarrhea and gas due to that, many many visits to the dental hospital, severe doses of anesthesia, 3 hours long dental operation, lots of bleeding, severe bone infection, fight with the landowner about contract renewal, having less than 100$ on bank account, unnecesary calls from the ex’es on Valentine’s Day (I guess they call everyone on their lists, and I basically told them to fuck off), severe fatigue, severe depression…
I am writing the screenplay for the documentary project job offer. I love doing this. I will work all night today.
Pray for me so it will pass the producers 🙂
Today, I organized my home, cleaned up a little bit, made some shopping, walked for an hour, took notes about everything as I forget them the next minute…
And, mostly I dreamt about what I want from my life!
There are so many things to do 🙂
I also made some lists on IMDb just for fun… OMG, I’ve watched a lot of movies and TV series. I mean, thousands of them. When did I do that? I guess, accumulating little by little works if you really love what you are doing. So, doing small things everyday become thousands one day. I want to develop a work environment like this. Do the best I do and do my favorite things every day. Here are my favorite things and I am good at them too:
– Travel & walk: I can walk for hours and I fit in everywhere.
– Meet new people who are different than me: I can learn just by watching. New excites me.
– Help people to create their vision in life: I am a psychologist and a life coach, I can talk people out of their existing place towards a more desired one.
– Write: I really love writing for an audience. That is you 🙂 I write really fast.
– Dream: I can do this all day long 🙂 It is my elixir of life
A month ago, I started this blog. I wrote 10 things about me and it was very depressing to honestly admit that I have many problems. Now, I will make the first monthly evaluation. My comments of today are marked with red. Updated on Jan 23, 2015.
1. Single, white, female like the fucking movie. I am single, never been married, I live alone. I am fucking alone. Therefore, I have no personal life or career. What do I have?
I am still single 🙂 However, I do not feel alone. I have you dear reader! Actually, I enjoy my alone time a lot. I have many projects so I do not think about my single status that much.
I have severe fibromyalgia, mitral valve pulmonerasis (heart disease), major depression, leaky gut syndrome, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome and the worst of it “candida albicans” throughout my digestive system. It is suprising that I haven’t died yet!
Here are the tips to make your about page more attractive & engaging to your target audience.
Note that attractive does not mean a marketing strategy. We are not selling anything. It is something you give to your audience to relate with you and your blog.
1. Show your authentic true self:
Who are you really? What are you doing on earth? What is it like to be you?
Remember that who you are before what is it about. Author is everything in a blog. Let the audience relate with you first, then your blog.
This is not FB so you can freely express yourself and get out of the shiny happy person image (Sorry R.E.M.)
Deepest desires, worst habits, lost hopes can be shared without any fear of judgement. Note that, I am not saying the content should be all about negative things. It should be though about the Yin as well as Yang of yourself. Show both your dark and the bright sides.
3. Clear up your mind about your purpose of writing
You do not have to do this on the first day, but it will become more clear in time. In some about pages, I get lost. You don’t want your readers to get lost. In time, clear up the unnecessary and come up with your neat, to the point purpose of writing.
4. Put some biographical information
Age, gender, location whatever you want to share. You do not have to share every detail of course but give your audience a little information about yourself so they can imagine you in front of them having a face-to-face conversation while they read your posts.
5. Put one photo of you or something depicting you as a person
It does not have to show your face, it could be anything like your hand writing a blog post for example.
Note that, putting many photos of your daily life is another distraction. You can share those moments with posts. About page should include 1 simple photo.
Just please do not put cat/flower/sunset/snowman pictures on about section. You do not have to show yourself but you may want to give an idea of yourself and you as a person.
Happy blogging 🙂
I have had short hair for the past 6 years. I shaved my head twice before, once for fun when I was in college, once to support a friend a year ago who took chemotherapy for breast cancer. I wanted to show her that a woman can still be very beautiful without hair. It meant a lot to her and she shaved her head right after me and did not use wigs since.
When I shaved my head about a year ago, I was working in a consulting firm and my stupid boss got angry as I did not informed her beforehand. Why should anyone inform anyone for that for God’s sake? My boss threatened to fire me and she thought that I was trying to protest something in the office. I did not defend myself and tell them the reason. I thought that I should not have to be explaining myself for that.
They used this as an excuse and start mobbing me at the office and I was forced to resign 6 months later.
Afterwards they learned the reason and tried to reach me but not for a sincere apology, but to prevent me from suing them for mistreatment and mobbing.
People eh? Or should I say “corporate devils”?
Anyways, you know the rest, the major depression linked with my auto-immune diseases and constant pain in my life for the past 6 months. Read more on 10 THINGS ABOUT ME
Now, jobless, depressed and sick, this 35 year old career woman starts from zero.
With a shaved head again.
Third time, but this time it was not my choice. It is for neither fun nor support. This time I happen to have Alopecia Areata, another auto-immune disease, which causes patchy hairloss on the scalp, where white blood cells from the immune system attack hair follicles and keep them from producing hair. It generally looks like this:
Now I am looking at the mirror.
Do I deserve this? No.
Am I beautiful? Well, at least I still have my head on my shoulders. I still have my fingers to blog. I still can write my story. I still have you reading it. I am grateful. But do I FEEL beautiful? No.
When I shaved my head to support my friend, I did not feel bad about my look. I felt very beautiful then. It was my bold decision made me beautiful in my eyes maybe… Now that it was not my choice I feel forced to do it. I feel helpless. So, maybe this time, it will take some time to feel beautiful for me.
And when I do feel that, I will share a photo with you 🙂 But, I am not strong enough yet.
