Hello friends today is day 38 sober and I am back to the grind from an amazing weekend. I am excited for my Three-day weekend coming up. A sober 4 of July!!! Some friends would like to BBQ, which sounds amazing, but another option is do a mini road trip. I’ve wanted to travel to an obscure town in CA, get a room and spend the weekend in an unknown town. The fourth of July is the perfect weekend to do so. I want to start shooting short films; I already have a few ideas in mind, I need to put them down on paper. I would also love to start shooting a documentary chronicling my struggle to stay sober from booze, past and ego. Sober is the New Black will be a great documentary but I would need to start saving for a 5d canon camera which is a few grand there is also a cheaper option which is the 7d canon. So I can take my mini trip or start saving for my camera? I probably can wait for the trip.
Film has always been a passion of mine and has saved me from a profoundly misfortunate childhood. As a child it was my escape from reality and still kind of is. So I try and watch a film a day. Yesterday I watch a film called August: Osage County it was remarkable film with such complex characters. The writing was phenomenal, it inspired me to continue to work on my nonfiction, and I am obsessed with complex characters. The cast was out of this world. Without giving too much away Meryl Streep plays Violet Weston she is a mom that’s an Addict. Her three daughters Barbara Weston played by Julia Roberts, Ivy Weston played by Julianne Nicholson, and Karen Weston played by Juliette Lewis c have to head back home for a not so good reason. Each character has conflict with each other and has to heal and evolve. A perfect film for date or date with yourself!
Today is day 38 sober and I am so grateful for every Second of sobriety. This journey so far has brought me closer to my true self and has fueled my passion that has been buried by Alcohol-ism. Sober is the New Black for me and its so sweet!
