Existentially Silent

If you don’t follow my secret poetry blog, you don’t know that I’ve been writing. I’ve ben writing my emotions and struggles down. I’ve been facing an existential crisis, constantly. There’s hope, but with depression, it looks like a pipedream.

This post is an update. A brief to let you know that I’m okay. And that my website may use cookies, that the EU’s GDPR requires me to inform you of. No biggie.

I’ll be back to writing here when I can. I’d like to. Let me know what you’d like to read from a curious young trans woman with avocations of journalism and art.

Thanks for reading.

Port Jervis, Journalist Associate Wanted

Searching for answers to your questions or those of others?
Want to not only know the truth, but share it? Well, hopefully we’re both in luck!

Transparently, Brienna Parsons is looking for a journalist associate for pro bono writing.

Port Jervis, New York is a low-income city, with a median household income of hardly $35k in 2010. The major newspaper that covers the area is the Times Herald-Record. Two things are hard to come by: paying gigs and reporters.

This gig is unpaid, but includes bylines, being featured on YourPortJervisIsShowing.com, and opportunities to create amazing work that can’t help but hit the printer.

Gig requirements are that the right reporter has fair control over their free time and can manage their time well, as well as owns an iPhone or a High Resolution camera. They should be able to take shorthand notes on the fly and be prepared to record conversations and ask for attribution.

If you’re looking to learn and get into the career, this is a good place to start. I’m covering local finance news and keeping city processes open and transparent. We’re also going to look at applying as a team for internships in the career track.

I’m currently available Mondays and Thursdays. If this works for you too, great, but more open availability is appreciated as there are plenty of events that I can’t cover with this availability.

Contact via email: briennaparsons22@gmail.com.
Serious inquiries only.

Today is International Women’s Day. My drive to take photos of mother nature today was thus uncompromising. Enjoy!

A Solemn Goodnight to All

On this day in history, legendary director Stanley Kubrick passed away in 1999.

He’s known for films such as The Shining, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Full Metal Jacket.

His work, decades later, still influences pop culture, cinema, television, and a broad spectrum of media.

I’m snowed in tonight, so I’m going to watch one of his earlier flicks. I might watch one of his earlier films tonight, one I haven’t watched yet. Not Dr. Strangelove or Spartacus.

What are you watching tonight? Show? Movie? Or maybe reading a book?
