Here's how things are in my part of the world right now.
Just finished my first short script in a while, a Direct Address piece that I'm hoping to shoot in a couple of weeks depending on the schedule of the actor I want to use. I'm also in the early stages of writing another and I should have more info on that down the line.
I'm also currently recovering from Vasectomy surgery on Thursday.
I took this step for a number of reasons.
One is that one of the things I pride myself on is self awareness and I have come to the conclusion that I am in no position either financially or emotionally to become a parent.
Another is that's it's become apparent that this current administration has absolutely no interest in women's health except as a means of control. And if I'm going to pursue any relationship with anyone, I'll be damned if I'm going to make it harder on that potential partner. (Granted, if that partner does want children...well, that's another conversation. And I suspect that it may not end well but that's another headache for another day.)
Also...and this is the one that's the gut punch...I'm not entirely confident that we're going to walk away clean from our current situation.
And I will be damned if I'm going inflict this world on an innocent child.
