I always have a notebook around so I can write down my thoughts! Anything from scripts, short stories, novels, songs, to poems! I also love comedy and make my own funny sketches on youtube (www.youtube.com/nataliespack)
“Green light…” Matthew McConaughey's twangy Texan voice echoed through the black Jeep Wrangler as the four wheels sped down Highway 1 somewhere between Bixby Bridge and McWay falls. The audiobook perfectly filled the silence between its two unlikely and completely opposite (or so they thought) occupants. One would assume any person in the particular situation these girls were in would be talking as fast as the jeep was going — and they had been — until they realized how different they were.
Family Members at the Movies
The movie theatres are finally open again! Hoorah! Sounds like the perfect opportunity for a family outing! A summer blockbuster movie along with some extra buttery popcorn sounds like a fun, relaxing, family event! Right? Wrong.
The Lighthouse at the End of the World
Most people never questioned what was at the end of the world. They were too busy surviving their personal problems to even think about exploring the furthest extensions of the earth.

Get out of L.A.
“Get out of L.A." they all say. The pollution, the homeless crisis, the shallow friendships, and the isolation are a few things they list off for their reasoning.
