Grow young. We're up all night to get lucky. The gift of life keeps on giving. We've come to far to give up who we are, so we say screw a day job. Screw doing anything that involves sitting behind a desk. The human body was made to do great things. It was made for exploring the world. The heart is too strong to hide under a tie behind a desk. Grow guts, and work for yourself. Make you dream a reality and let go. No one person writes the rules for life, you have to be your own author. You have to live with all your heart until it pours out of you.

Sorry I've been away my loves, but... I am proud to announce to you all that I am officially a college graduate! It feels so so good! My graduation weekend was so beautiful. My family came into town and we spend the weekend in a penthouse on the 25th floor downtown laying in bed, ordering room service and laughing together. I don't know what I would do without them. They make it possible for me to follow my dreams. I think the day I grew up was the day I stopped believing that they were somehow trying to hold me back or work against me. I realized that they really just want me to be happy. They want me to be healthy and wear a big smile. My dad always says, "I'd love you if you just breathed in and out." I think that's important. It makes it so that everything I accomplish, I do so for me. Not for Mom, Not for Dad, Not for Uncle Ed, for ME!

Basically what I'm saying is follow your passion with all your heart. Let your art kill you. Express yourself until you pass out and then wake up and do it all over again. I plan on spending this summer figuring out just what I want to do with this blog, where my next steps are, and loving the people around me.

Remember, if you are an artist, that's incredibly powerful. People are scared of you. People are frightened by people who actually have what it takes to live what they love.
