Being so young I often ponder what things from now will come around and help me later, or if that sometimes things are simply meant to be forgotten.
5 years ago, I packed up and moved to California. At the young age of 19 I didn’t really know what I was doing. I just knew I needed to be there! My entire life I knew I would be in California one day. And the biggest thing that drew me there was the undeniable feeling that I was supposed to be an actress.
I lived in LA for 3 years.
It is a beautiful, beautiful place.
Full of diversity and opportunity, people flock from all over the world to be a part of this creative metropolitan. Some people flourish, and people fall. Some people come and some people go.
They say the only way to succeed in LA is to NEVER GIVE UP.
I’m not going to lie. I am pretty Jaded from LA Like I said it has been the best and the worst 3 years of my life. I have seen some shit… (to put it light terms) Drug Deals, Shootings, Gang Fights, Car Accidents, Heart Break, Betrayal.
But I have also had some great experiences like Filming in my first film, working at a studio, touring with bands, falling in love, meeting so many people and making some really good friends.
I haven’t announced to everyone, but I have packed up and I am moving away from Los Angeles…. Not too far… an hour North to a beautiful place called Carpinteria.
I am not giving up on any of my dreams, I am simply taking myself to a place I can continue to explore the soul purpose of my existence on earth as human.
I feel it can be very easy to loose yourself in such a superficial world such as LA LA LAND. I have so many dreams why would I miss out on any of them…?
I am a Utah girl at heart, and although I want to live the glamorous life that is possible with LA. Sometimes I remember that I want to marry a cowboy and want to live on a farm. :D
So with change in the wind, for the next year I will be volunteering on a organic farm. I will also be playing Lacrosse for SBCC and studying FILM, ACTING AND taking other medical courses. I am hoping to work as a ranch hand on a goat farm but the possibilities are endless…
I am so grateful to have to opportunity to be able to get away from LA continue doing the things that I have always wanted and explore. Not only will I grow but I will learn skills that will help me throughout my entire life as a mother, neighbor and human being. That is something to be excited about.
Wish Me Luck and Let The Good Times Fly.
