I just got into doing cold water splashes in the morning. When we have to wake up at 4 in the morning to be on-set, I will put ice cubes in a bowl and push my face into them. Basically I dunk for apples in this tub of ice. It just wakes everything up right away, but it’s also really good for your blood vessels and your pores, and tightens your skin and gets rid of swelling. Coffee’s not going to work, this is the only way.

I want to talk really briefly on what DCM16 meant to me

I know that it was almost a month ago but I wanted to let the experience simmer and breath before talking too much about it. When I landed at JFK I felt, like the Mountain Goats said, so proud to be alive. So happy to be where I wanted to be, making an experience for myself for no other reason than I really wanted to do it. I spent a lot of the past school year really really just barely surviving. I spent a lot of my time in NYC literally lost and learning to be okay with that, to ask for help but also lean on myself. Allowing my friends to be there for me and oh my god were they, carrying me through everything. The top picture here is from waiting in line on the last day. Spending seven hours in line was actually very peaceful, making friends, being there alone was completely fine with me. Lots of five AM train rides, my face sore from smiling. I cannot wait to go next year with my dear Nadia and Hannah. 

I’ve spending a lot of time this summer doing things that are life affirming- just taking time out to recognize how happy I am, how good things are. Halloween Surprise style. DCM was a full weekend of that. Chaos, commitment, love. Thank you thank you thank you. 

The whole trip had a strong “The Best Ever Death Metal Band Out of Denton” vibe, if that make sense.
