My favorite quote, quite possibly of all time, comes from George Bernard Shaw: “You see things and say ‘why?’ I dream of things that have never been and say ‘Why not?'” I think this quote reminds us to stay creative, value our imaginations, and never lose our sense of wonder. In a world of people who are constantly doubting one-another, doubting themselves, and wondering what the hell they’re doing here, I think it is important to ask “why not?”
I am from Charlotte, NC and now live in Dallas, TX. I am 24 years old, 25 in September, and live alone with my adorable puppy Puff Daddy (he will be 2 in August). I mainly made this blog so I could post my dreams where someone can see them- not that anyone will, but they CAN and that’s the important thing. I will include other content from time to time, but mainly, I will stick to dreams.
Ideally, I would like to live in LA or Denver, or Austin, just not Dallas (no offense Dallas). We’ll see, maybe one day after I pay off all my student loans; which, at this rate will be never. I’m working on being happier and trying to focus on the positives in my life but sometimes life is a bitch and I have trouble staying upbeat- my forever motto: I was positive yesterday. (another motto of mine is “words are hard sometimes” but that’s neither here nor there.
Amendment: I made it to Austin. September 2019, I packed up my life in Dallas, threw all my belongs (bed, pink velvet chairs, vibrators, etc.) into a large, yellow Penske truck, wrangled Puff and skipped down to Austin at 70mph; Succulents sitting on the dash, dog passed out in a toy basket in between the seats, Diet Coke in hand. Four months later, I’m in a luxurious, spacious apartment two miles from my office where I work with an amazing crowd of energetic misfits. We write until our fingers fall off and fuck around when we’re off the clock; I couldn’t ask for more.
In this new chapter of my life, I am on the path to thriving greatness. I am taking it day by day, accepting the things I cannot change and taking it in stride. There are a lot of unknowns in this chapter and I invite you on this journey with me to overturn the stones as they themselves reveal. The only certainty is this: I will write. I will document it all, starting from the past and writing my way into the present to, finally, finish my story.
Cliche as it may sound – it is all happening. Here. And now.
