Mood because we’re taking control of our narrative & changing the way we see Mondays. Also we heard if you want different, you have to move different so we’re waking up by 8AM everyday this week. Who else? #8AMChallenge || art by @turnjurell ⚡️

"Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck." --Dalai Lama || Don’t hold so tight to your end goal that you miss the opportunities right in front of you. This week, let nothing pass you that is meant for you. ⚡️

“That is my greatest fear, that if I lost control or did not have control, things would just, you know be…fatal.”—Ctrl || We asked some of our favorite creatives what their favorite albums of 2017 were. What was yours? @thenotoriouskia loved Ctrl by @sza (SAME, SAME) ⚡️ Thank you @trafficart for capturing.

"I think it’s a terrible thing to wait until you're “ready.” I have this feeling that no one is actually “ready” to do anything. There is almost no such thing as “ready.” There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any." __Hugh Laurie || @bereolaesque for #CultureCon 📷 @trafficart

Tannis (@_itsmicole) is a doer with creative drive that is powerful, inspiring & unmatched. Last year, she decided she wanted to create a film, so what did she do? She wrote, directed, produced & sourced budget for her debut narrative short film, “Two.” The film received acceptance in numerous festivals (& did we mention that Tannis had no film school experience—she’s just that good?!) She premiered her second film “Curtis” at the 2017 Nitehawk Shorts Festival in Brooklyn & now, Tannis is gearing up for the release of her third film “I Needed You” set to debut this month. The film will be Tannis’ first experience behind the camera as cinematographer and follows a young man struggling to come to terms with his failure in a past relationship after he receives a voicemail from his ex-lover. Tannis is doing all this while working full time at MTV!! Check out the behind the scenes clip above & join us in congratulating filmmaker & tribe member Tannis. 🙌🏾⚡️
