A New Day, A New Year, A New Adventure

I love the first of January, the significance of starting anew, leaving (or at least attempting) old habits behind, testing new ones, but most importantly, moving forward.

It’s so easy to take advantage of time and forget how much has changed within a year.

A year ago, if you had told me I was going to be living in New York City, meeting and working with some of the most incredibly talented people in the world; I would have slapped your face in for playing with my emotions and making fun of my dreams like that.

I really do believe if you truly want something so bad, God/ the Universe/ whatever you believe in will open the doors and clear the roads for you. It’s just up to you to decide what the next move is.

It’s just amazing how hard it is to be an optimist in this world, you have cynics every where. I remember on my formspring I had some people making fun of me calling myself an actress because I hadn’t “been in anything.”

When I was younger, I would have thought “making it” meant being on the covers of magazines and it all the box office hits but now I know it means having talent and being respected by your peers, even the rest of the world has no clue who you are.

That’s all I want now, to be happy concentrating and doing what I love. If you want to knock me for it, that’s fine but at the end of the day, you do you and I’ll do me.

My New Year’s Resolutions:

The Overall Year Ones:

1. The usual: Lose weight
Only doing it properly; eating right, working out more, & keeping the curves I love.
Oh, and DRINK MORE WATER!!

Starting weight: 122 lbs
Goal weight: 110 lbs
Extra Credit Goal: 105 lbs


[Melanie Iglesias is totally my thinspiration *sigh*]

2. Blog more!!
At least once a week. I miss writing and I want to do things a little different then I did before. All the blogs I love do the “Outfits of the Day” but I have to wear a uniform for Sephora & all black for See so my clothes are always nondescript haha so I’m actually going to do “Makeup Of the Day” since I get to experiment everyday.

3. Be more responsible:
Schedule in my calendar, learn to budget, and just stop being lazy! This city and time do not wait for anyone!

4. Pray more.
I honestly feel like there are so many blessings in my life and I’m not thanking the Lord enough 😦

5. Stay in touch more with my family & loved ones.
I’m horrible at this and I need to be better at it…

The “Fun” Ones:

1. Buy my first Louboutins (on my own penny)

2. Learn how to put fake lashes on, by myself, fluidly & perfectly

3. Finally try my first Laudree macaroons

4. Read again, one book a month

5. Give people a reason to remember my name….

    I don’t remember why I first started following you on twitter (I always have reasons), but once you caught my attention again I revisited your blog and read this. So, here’s one person that won’t be forgetting your name again. I hope to see you in some movies soon. If that’s a picture of you on twitter then you most definitely have the face for it (very beautiful).

    Try to ignore the dream killers, even if they’re people you care about, and I’ll try to do the same 😀

    No apologies! Unless…you know, we accidentally step on someone’s toe or something. It’s okay then, right?
