My Manifesto

A list of statements I believe in that drives me as an artist and as a person

9

I believe that goodness exists everywhere, in every crevice of the universe.

I believe in a higher power, but not that it cares about fate.

I believe that every person, and animal, has basic rights.

I believe that most of our basic rights are disrespected on a daily basis.

I believe that art is an expression of our humanity, and it binds the artists and its viewers together for a lifetime.

I believe that art is not limited, anything that is an expression of the artist is art.

I believe that this does not mean that there is not "bad art."

I believe that bad art is still good, but it is an unenthusiastic expression of humanity, sticking itself somewhere in life where it does not belong.

I believe that every person on earth is an artist.

I believe that if everyone believed the previous statement, we would be much more peaceful.

I believe that peace comes from understanding.

I believe that understanding comes from curiosity.

I believe that hatred is fear externalized.

I believe that love is something we all feel, and suppress because society tells us to.

I believe that women should be allowed to acknowledge their experiences, and their fears.

I believe that men should be allowed to acknowledge their experiences, and their fears.

I believe that people should be allowed to acknowledge their experiences, and their fears.

I believe that we have normalized self-hatred, self-doubt, and hiding our true self.

I believe that if everyone believed in their power, we would have equality.

I believe that no issue can be solved completely.

I believe that art exists to communicate about the issues we feel are important, and to fight against what we feel is wrong.

I believe that art presents an ideal world, the real world, and the worst possible world all at once.

I believe in kindness above all.

I believe that happiness is more important than success, wealth, power, or any other thing.

I believe that happiness is one of the aforementioned basic rights.

I believe that not all people are capable of happiness.

I believe in love.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
