Yodels, I'm Dawna

24/f/Massachusetts.

My portfolio website! I make movies and take pretty pictures.

I talk mostly about my [boring] life, filmmaking, my photography, and some things I'm interested in.

Film major at le Fitchburg State University

I run the horse racing blog The Galloping Hat Rack

Future documentary filmmaker

I post photos of my dog a lot sorry not sorry

 

My poor car is acting up again. She turned on then shut off when I was trying to leave school earlier today, so I had my dad come down and we had to have her towed to the shop to see what was up. It looked like a battery issue, but the battery is only 4 months old and she started right up for the mechanic so we’re all scratching our heads. CAMMY GODDAMMIT STOP IT.

I would really like her to last me through another year, or at the very least the summer…

"That feeling was fear: fear the filly was just too fast, that she couldn’t go on like this, that she would use herself too much. It was a fear that everyone on the backstretch understood. When a horse came along with speed like Ruffian’s, pure, effortless, unearthly speed, they asked themselves: Was it a gift from God, or a bargain with the Devil?"

This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

jumpinglines said: Ew that’s stupid. But also it’s Fitchburg, I can’t say I’d expect them to see/recognize the difficulty of working with and photographing live animals (that’re kind of assholes sometimes), as compared to, you know, that leaf rolling by…

Yeah true. I’m 90% sure that all or a major part of the judging system they use for it is heavily biased, ya know, teachers’ favorites and what not. I got very little recognition for my last really ambitious project that involved out-of-state travel for 2 days, so on that note I’m glad I didn’t invest too much time into prepping entries.

On a brighter note, I was relieved to hear my advanced doc project “Roughshod” is getting some attention from the entire film/video department, both faculty and students, and it’s about horses. I’m sad I don’t live on campus so I can’t be there to soak it all in, especially because Fitchburg’s program is heavily into cinema, not non-fiction. Thanks again for the sympathy :P
