This is an interactive journal

It is designed for you to journal from Kera’s experience, also known as “Artist-Inspired” journaling.

How it Works:
1. Pause at moments when the story resonates with you.
2. Pull out a notebook and begin journaling. Free write distraction free for as long as you can. Pause and Play at your leisure.
3. Towards the end of the story, there is a journaling prompt for you to reflect and answer.
4. Go to the last 20 seconds of this video for the journaling prompt.

Experiencing disapproval after coming out to her parents, as well as pain from almost losing an important relationship in her life, Kera & the Lesbians’ singer, Kera Armendariz, shares how song writing and performing has brought her peace and clarity. She also dives into the inspiration behind the band’s song “Snakes.”

“If it’s a song where I can put myself in the moment, or like, allow myself to open up to people while playing, really looking into the eyes of everyone and just, like, exposing myself, it’s wonderful. It really is. I feel that we’re connected at that moment. I just do what’s genuine for me and if it catches with one person, great. I have had people tell me that it’s helped them. It’s wonderful to hear. I don’t care about money. Because…that’s what this world needs.” -Kera Armendariz 

Producer: Monica Dziak; Interviewer & Editor: Monica Dziak; Camera: Norio Chalico and Mingjie Zhai
 

Three ways of Reflecting:

A) Write down what the artist said that you can relate to and start journaling.

B) Respond to the Journaling Prompt at the end of the interview.

C) Respond to the artist quote that we have chosen for each interview.

JOURNAL WRITE

Journal Entry 1: Are you currently holding onto any skeletons in your closet that you’d like to release? What’s holding you back from doing so?

Journal Entry 2: Think of a relationship in your life that you’d truly like to work on and find peace with. Contemplate where that relationship is currently at in its course and how you can improve it.
