2018: One Second Per Day

2018: One Second Per Day

Through this year I made a few trips west (and a couple east,) baked a couple dozen loaves of bread, ate a few more bowls of ramen, apparently still enamored with everything Mowgli does, helped (in any way I could) Vanita release a record of conviction and beauty, wrote my first feature and a pilot, actually shot and released my first narrative short, read a LOT of books, saw a ton of movies, and spent a lot of time with old friends and made some new ones.

That’s what this video shows, anyways. However, to be honest, I hated this year. It was SO hard and stressful. I failed at so much, struggled at even more, and was lost and in a fog for so much of it. I felt alone and passed by and I even got sick with stress and had shingles like an old man.

…but this video doesn’t lie, there was still something every single day worth filming that, put together, reminds me that 2018 will be a year that I will regard with importance and joy for the rest of my life. It doesn’t mean that it wasn’t hard or an endeavor to make it through, but I’m thankful to have made it to this side of the year and have (just short of) 365 seconds of video to take with me.
