Thank you SO much! :)

Inspiration

Today, I spent about 3 hours in Barns and Nobles reading Jerry Weintraub’s book ‘When I stop talking, you’ll know I’m dead’

This man is so inspiring, I only hope that I can become half as successful as he is. I can actually see so much of myself in him. His train of thought, his work ethics, his morals. This mans story gives me so much hope.

I have heard it so much from my family, “You can do anything you want to do. Just put your mind to it”.

This is such a cliche saying, and though they always said “anything”, in my head, for some reason, id always set limitations. But after reading about Jerry, and hearing all of these success stories, I can see that the sky isnt even my limit.

I really can do anything I set my mind to. I have a goal, and I will some day reach it.

Hello Tumblr!

Though I am not new to Tumblr. I have made this new account to display my personal progress in life, and possibly achieve an ultimate goal. 

Being newly graduated from high school, everyone asks you 3 questions.

1. What are you doing for school?

2. Where are you going to be living? (on campus, off campus, with who?)

3. What do you want to major in?

My answers being..

1. I am going to attend Butte Community College, in Chico Ca. So I can possibly transfer to Chico State after my first 2 years of general ed.

2. I am living in downtown Chico, in a house, with 3 boys…

3. I am not really sure, I am interested in Biology and Psychology, so I was thinking maybe nursing? But I’m not sure yet.

Truth is, I had no clue what direction my life is headed. My moto in life is, just do what makes you happy. And I have a simple formula that I believe keeps me happy.

A roof over my head.

Food in my stomach.

Surrounded by people that love me.

And ambitions in life.

My most recent ambition was to live in Chico. Simple, but financially supporting myself, it was a pretty big goal. After now living in Chico for a little over a month. I am ready for my next goal.

One of my best friends is an aspiring actress. She is extremely talented in acting, singing, playing guitar, using flowery words, and drawing everyone in with her amazing story telling abilities. 

My parents worked in the entertainment industry all of their lives, and I have been influenced by there talents all of my life. Though I was not blessed with the vocal abilities they have. I believe I have the qualities to spot talent.

Flat and simple: My goal is now to become a Manager/ Talent Agent.
