I LOVE TYPING IN ALL CAPS AND GETTING REALLY EXCITED ABOUT ACTIVITIES THAT BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. LAST YEAR I HOSTED 31 PEOPLE AT MY APARTMENT FOR THANKSGIVING ... THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR 31 PEOPLE BUT I DID IT ANYWAYS BECAUSE IT MEANT NONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WOULD HAVE TO BE ALONE ON THANKSGIVING. 

 

I DON'T LIKE GOING TO BED, AND I DON'T LIKE MEN WHO TALK MORE THAN ME. I ASK FOR DVD'S FOR CHRISTMAS EVERY YEAR. MY FAVORITE MOVIE IS DIE HARD. MY DAD SHOWED ME MOVIES LIKE PULP FICTION, THE TERMINATOR, AND CASINO WHEN I WAS 6 YEARS OLD AND WOULD SAY "DON'T TELL YOUR MOM." SOME PEOPLE CALL THAT WRONG BUT I CALL IT EDUCATIONAL! I DID NOT GO TO COLLEGE. I AM CANADIAN. I AM A DIRECTOR, AND I ALSO LIKE EDITING. I LIKE TOP-40 POP SONGS AND BRIGHT COLORS. I LIKE FIGHTING. I HAVE A LOT OF ANGER. I ALMOST RESORTED TO LIFE AS A BULLY, UNTIL I MET MY FRIEND EMMA IN GRADE 5 WHO HELPED ME REALIZE THAT ALL MY RAGE COULD BE USED TO HELP MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE, RATHER THAN A WORSE ONE. I ALSO LIKE THERAPY. 

I'M ONE HALF OF THE SISTER-RUN COMPANY LIGHT LAYER PRODUCTIONS. WE FOCUS ON TELLING WOMXN'S STORIES AND HIRING WOMXN BEHIND THE LENS.  WE ARE DEDICATED TO PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE WHO WOULDN'T OTHERWISE HAVE THE RESOURCES TO BE THE NEXT SCORSESE, KUBRICK, OR SPIELBERG SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, OR THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES FOR NEW FILMMAKERS, SO IF YOU ARE A WOMXN FILMMAKER AND YOU NEED HELP TELLING YOUR STORY, PLEASE REACH OUT HERE

THAT IS ALL FOR NOW. I'M REALLY GOOD AT WHAT I DO. I LOVE YELLING. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS ESSAY. 

LOVE, 

ARDEN
