I've never been one for compliments. I prefer to never been seen or commented on. I'd rather you insult me than tell me you like my smile. I don't know why this is, I'm just really weird. I was thinking about this more today because a friend of mine came up to me & told me I had great hair. While I've gotten this comment a lot in my life, it just really struck me today.

Do you want to know what I did to get ready this morning? I rolled off of my bed, searched through some clothes to find today's stylin' outfit (burgundy jeans & a gray hoodie) and I scratched my head.

I scratched my head.

I am so lazy when it comes to my appearance. So, I guess I feel as though I don't deserve people's compliments. Seriously, there are some girls out there that honestly wake up early & go through a lot to put themselves together in the morning, & they're the ones that deserve to be complimented. I don't mean to complain about nice words being thrown at me, but honestly.

Who knows, maybe one day I'll post about my "morning routine".

Filming, Friends, & Fun

For a while now, my friend Louie & I have tossed around the idea of starting a YouTube Channel.

Since 2007 I can remember dreaming of posting content onto YouTube and growing an audience, but much like with this blog, I've always been too afraid to. I mean, don't get me wrong, I had good reason: I hate the sound of my recorded voice, no one would actually watch, I'm really not that funny, no one in my immediate life contributes to online content so it'd just be really weird. I've had the same excuses for 7 years now, & I had no desire to face my fears and create content.

That is, until I met Louie. He and I were sitting in the on campus coffee shop, goofing off, chatting back and forth about Justin Bieber's semi-recent arrest. We were cracking jokes left & right, when all of a sudden Louie pops up & says, "we should have our own YouTube web series." In that moment, things got too real for me. I've always wanted this. Was it really going to happen? We had a platform figured out, we would take current pop culture news & release a "news segment"about each topic but instead, we'd sort of roast whatever that topic was.

Louie's tirelessly urged me since that initial day in February to do this with him, to start filming some little bits, and tonight we finally did. We didn't go with our first idea to roast everything, instead we got together with our friends, sat in front of a camera, and began.

Let me begin by saying that if you aren't used to it, sitting down & filming yourself is easily one of the weirdest things to do. I never knew where to look, or what to say, or if I should be like super happy & smiley, or cranky & snarky. I was so nervous, so I started to flow with Louie and whatever he was doing. Well, Louie was really weird and nervous too. We just sat there, attempting to do this thing that was so weird. But then we brought in two of our other friends to do the Best Friend Tag, that's pretty popular on YouTube.

All of us in frame, we began. I have no idea if there is any quality footage from tonight, but I can tell you that I had a blast. The four of us sat in a studio for almost two hours just joking around, & hopefully something great came from it. If not, that just means we get to do this again. So either way, I'm winning.



This past weekend my college hosted the second annual Captiv8 Film Festival. Captiv8 is a 48 hour film festival, in which teams have to film and edit an entire short film in just two days, the only thing they're allowed to do before the start of the competition is preproduction (i.e. script writing, location scouting, scheduling). Along with it only lasting 48 hours, each film must include 3 mystery details that are given during the opening broadcast of the festival.

This year's details included:

  1. Dialogue: "Don't you see? It's happening again."
  2. Prop: A bouquet of flowers
  3. Character: A barista
Last year, a group of my friends and I got together and formed a team, Follow Focus Films. Together we ended up producing an 8 minute short film, "Cost." It's the story of a father who gets the opportunity to show love to a child in a way he could not to his own son. You can watch it here.

This year, we got the band back together and produced something amazing. 

Now I'm not trying to toot my own horn, especially because I never do. But it turned out so well. The whole experience this year was so special for my team because it's the last year we'd be doing this, and this project is quite possibly the last project we'll get to work on together. Our story, "JIM", is about a man who develops a mental disorder in an attempt to cope with the tragic loss of his father and the shoes he left for him to fill.

As I said, we submitted this to Captiv8 Film Festival, and we were nominated for all six awards, winning "Most Captiv8ing Editor", ""Most Captiv8ing Director", "Most Captiv8ing Screenplay", and "Most Captiv8ing Short Film". I'm so excited to share this with you. 

A Little Introduction

Hello there, I'm Callie Glynn. I'm a 22 year old coffee lover & internet enthusiast. I have freckles & red hair. I currently live in Pennsylvania, where I attend The University of Valley Forge, studying Social Media Management.

I have always wanted to start a blog but I never felt like I had anything to say to an audience. Recently though, I've been somewhat inspired & I decided to just go for it. So, here I am!

On this blog, Freckle Face, I'll post (hopefully once a week) about things that I love and things that make me happy. Whether that be a YouTuber, a snack, or a lip product. I just want a way to share my life with any one that may be interested.
