I just want to take this time to say how happy I am I’ve chosen the path I’m on. It took me a bit to get here but it was so worth the journey and the wait. I’ve always wanted a good education for myself and it took me forever to finally get the discipline and then once it was going well I remember my love for acting. And then i put discipline into that. But then I started looking at the world around me and realizing what it might become if I let get where it could possibly go.
I like to think of myself as a well rounded person. I love video games, I’m a fantasy geek, but I can school many people in politics and I like all genres of music.
When I was in school, I was learning, educating myself to go deeper into whatever I studied and always ask questions. I had great vocabulary that I’ve fallen behind on, I was a better writer which I worked very hard for.
And then i poured deep, deep into myself to really find truth in acting and I have so much more growing to do especially as I grow and change in life discovering new things about me and the world.
I started to think recently how much I missed learning, expanding my mind, gathering all the knowledge I could. And recently I can still educate myself while working on growing as an actor and making new discoveries. I can do school plays, I can still do student films and short films. None of this will stop my potential for growing as an actor.
I truly want to be a good person at the end of the day that is open minded, compassionate and proud of who I am.
And I believe the best way to do that, is to do exactly what I’m doing, all the things I want not what others tell me or experts in Hollywood as I spend more and more money on so many things that will supposedly help me get famous. And don’t get me wrong I have no disrespect for anyone in Hollywood. I applaud them, admire them and am so happy for them. But many of them besides their talent had luck on their side and that’s very fortunate. And many of them talk about this, the whole luck factor being on their side.
I just don’t want to have to wait to create, I want to create when I want and hope I can make people feel things and respond to it.
I want to write a movie. (I’m already working on a script)
I want to write a novel. (There’s two ideas both in very premature stages)
I want to be a good actor continuously growing that makes people feel.
I want to create a YouTube channel with my own content.
I want to start writing a blog. (this will happen shortly)
I want to be educated with a degree whether its an AA or BA. (currently attending college)
I want to travel.
I want to give back.
I want to be financially responsible.
The one thing I don’t want because I already have, Happiness.
It’s a choice and you can chose how you live your life. Millions will tell you, you are doing it wrong but you can just smile and move on with your day.
Do whats best for you.
And if by great happen chance I get to work with the great Hollywood with people I admire, that will be a great day and if not, that’s ok too.
