Happy Holidays to You and Yours

Dear Readers, Happy Holidays! I hope you’re relaxing and making time to do the things you love. During this time of year it’s easy to get wrapped up in gifts (wrapped up, get it? Wow I’m cheesy!), financial woes, and a bit of family drama, so it’s important to step back and take a little time for yourself. As with Thanksgiving, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to reflect on what you’re thankful for. I’m thankful to be back in Tucson right now, spending the holiday season with friends and family. With moving and starting graduate school, this has been a whirlwind of a year, and I’m extremely fortunate to have a strong support system of loving people who have guided me every step of the way. It’s also been immensely therapeutic to have this blog and be able to share my thoughts and feelings on any given topic.

As always, please be sure to send in feedback, submissions, or professional inquiries to catchallblog@gmail.com. …

Joe Swanberg’s mumblecore film was one of my favorites from 2014 for a handful of reasons. Not only was the dialogue completely improvised, but the production was filmed in Swanberg’s home and stars both him and is actual baby son. How cool is that?! Baby Swanberg is so entertaining that he’s enough of a reason to see Happy Christmas, but everything else about the film is quite wonderful too. Dir. Joe Swanberg, 2014 Synopsis: “After a break up, Jenny moves in with writer Kelly, her filmmaker husband, and their child. Despite a rocky start, …
