The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 10

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California.

With all of my “Farewell Tour” included, today was my tenth and final day of travel, journeying from Bangor, Maine (via Fort Kent) alllll the way to Los Angeles (well, Whittier for the night).

I awoke early in beautiful Flagstaff, AZ. These hour-shifts were really starting to mess with me. I was tired, but needed to get going, so I showered and off to breakfast I went. I couldn’t get over the beauty of this room.Read More »

The Wayward Traveler Chronicles Day 8

“The Wayward Traveler Chronicles” will be a series of journal entries recording my trip across the country from Maine to California.

I won’t sugarcoat it: this was a long day. After last night’s showing of Doctor Strange, I drove back to the hotel and began to write Day 7, but soon realized the time: It was two o’clock A.M.

When everything in my life told me I couldn’t, I simply refused to listen. And so, I begin my chronicle of the excursion across the United States.

Wow, the United States. I’ve been to only a handful of them, and I find my number unsettling, like a low number of sexual partners in your early 20s, for the number doesn’t really mean anything, but man, sometimes you wish it was higher. “If I could only live more!”

I’m Moving to Los Angeles

With a click-baity title like that, you know it’s going to be good!

 

The Great Depression

In the past eighteen months, I’ve gone through some changes, and I never shared them publically like other elements of my personal life (see My Cancer Story).

Now, I was going to provide a summary of this post at the beginning of it a lá news stories on CNN, but I realized how much I fucking hate that. Just let me read the article and stop trying to make us collectively dumber!

In June of 2015, I was at a crossroads. It had been over a year since our short film, The Tale of the Three Brothers (yes, that J.K. Rowling short story) premiered in a preview screening, and I was eager on getting my career “started.”
