Boy am I tired but I enjoyed being a production assistant. There were some changes made today and I had to get adjusted quickly. I was nervous and the stress of the fast pace Production life was about to get me but @jenillemarie made sure that I was straight. This is just the beginning and I'm loving it! I even managed to snag a few selfies. ๐Ÿ˜Š #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #screenwriter #thevillageseries #chicagoauthor #creative #windycity #purple #saturday #rainyday #sleepy #work #play #fun #producer #production #experience #all #the #way #up
I didn't realize how tired I was until after I got home and fell out. I'm grateful to be a production assistant. Its fun and rewarding. I even got the opportunity to add my own advice to the performers so that I could do my job better. In one of these pics you'll see the booth I was in and I had to walk up some stairs where in person it looks really scary. #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #writer #writersofinstagram #creative #producer #production #screenwriter #booth #stairs #fearless #all #the #way #up #blackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #blackgirlsrock #superhuman #artist

I decided to admire my fitness results before my morning workout. I'm loving how my waistline is slimming down and my legs toning. I woke up excited and ready for this workout. Now I will incorporate arm and stomach routines. #a #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #fitness #workoutmotivation #kanye #workoutplan #work #it #out #cardio #strengthtraining #strength #stressfree #healthy #this #chick #bad #baddie #focus #fit #fitlife #fitnessmotivation #morning #morningmotivation
Last year I decided to make myself a priority and it's one of the best things that I've done. Losing weight, career is popping, family is taken care of and I am happy and focused. It will only get better. When you focus on you the little things don't bother you! I'm loving the space I'm in. #self #love #peace #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #life #readersareleaders #readers #leaders #wife #mom #daughter #sister #family #fit #mentally #physically #emotionally #spiritually

Mrs. Simmons was my first guest on the show and gave us her perspective of being a teacher.

My munchkin is reading Matilda and he loves it! So I asked him if we could read it together. It's amazing hearing his thoughts about what he reads. I definitely want him to be able to think, form his own opinions, and solve problems while understanding that there are no limits to how far his mind will take him. #readingisfun #readingisfundamental #myson #authorjrivers #authorsofinstagram #matilda #glasses #words #wordsonthepage #readersareleaders #leader #leadership #thinkers
I finished reading "This Present Darkness" yesterday and I swear I felt so lost. I get attached to the characters like we are actually friends. Now I'm back to the drawing board! Choosing a new set of friends is hard at the moment.
