Meet Tokio Aoyama, my long time friend artist. Based in Tokio he picked up the love for HIPHOP (je weet zelf) which is reflected in his work, as seen above. 

I have been asking him for years to come to Amsterdam and do show his work. But this year might be the year it happens.

This is how I effin feel!
Senioritis :(    
So, I have been trying to get out of the mindset of thinking that Columbia cannot teach me anymore than I already know. Everything that I do learn comes from practicing on set with my creative posse. I just think that after being a part of an institution for so long, I am seeing more of the kinks and see too much bullshit to care. I legit roll my eyes so many times in class.
Our screenwriting professors talk about having substance in our stories, yet they show us a short about some little broad trying to kill a damn puppy. If you really wanted to find a “message” in this short, you could talk about companionship. EVERYONE in the class is writing things that are a lot more sustantial. I’m just personally glad that I spoke up on that one particular day because {besides my body temperature getting hott!} but also because I just cannot handle feeling like I’m getting played. We’re not kids anymore. We’re filmmaking, attending this damn school to become BETTER filmmakers. I can say whatever because, shit I’m paying for my education. The only thing that I can thank the Film department for is a few staff that actually made a difference to me, even outside of the classroom. And finally these peopl helped me organize my creative madness.
In any case, I will stay strong for the rest ofthe semester….I just probably need a break.

Thanksgiving 2011 with best buddy and lil cuz ;) 

can-bot:

Last Night:
dinner with my buddy, her cousin and cheap wine -______-
first night of “drinking”… I don’t remember everything, just the fact that I was dancing really slow to k-pop…
They told me I might be drunk. To prove them wrong, I stood up and did the Charleston, then slipped when I finished…
I promise I wasn’t drunk… just a little off, a little happy and a little warm… it was the food ^_^
…good times
except for the wine part… I had half a cup, and it was over… never again
