I’ve been thinking A LOT lately! My mind is constantly running and focusing on many things at once. Every day is different than the next. I have really stressful days and I have days where I am very happy and carefree. Other days I am constantly struggling with what I want to do with my life. This move to NYC hasn’t only changed my physical location, but it’s changed my outlook on my future and what exactly I want to do with it.
I’ve always had a few things that I wouldn’t mind doing as a career, but never actually thought of pursuing anything but film. I moved to NYC to pursue my career in film production because I love making movies and it’s what I went to school for. I especially love special effects and I always want that to be part of my life in some way or another.
Over the past 5 months I have come to realize how many things I want to do in my life. I have developed so many new interests and I have become even more independent. I’m not going to lie, I feel like I’ve had a lot of alone time over these past few months and I’ve tried to make the best of them as much as I could. I had some pretty depressing days, because really it sucks to be stuck in your apartment alone every single day struggling to find a job! Those days are over though, I feel very strongly that there is something for me out there and it is coming soon!
I have developed a love for writing and my blog has progressed immensely within these past few months. I love my blog and I want it to continue to grow. I’m very excited to announce that I will soon have my very own domain name. It’s currently in the works and I thank my brother in law Scott very much for helping me out with it. I hope to have it officially complete by the end of the month. I also got into an internship program because of my blog and it is helping me advance as a writer. I am currently writing for I Really Like food (dot) com and Health Kicker (dot) com. It’s been a wonderful experience thus far and I look forward to what will come out of it.
I’m at the point where I REALLY NEED A JOB, my savings has come to a close. I’ve been finding opportunities every day and I continue to stay positive. I would absolutely love to get a job on the set of a film, as a makeup artist, or even office work in a production office. But, what I’ve come to realize is that film is not the only job that will make me happy. I just want to like what I do. There are many opportunities out there that I would be happy to do. I’ve got so many plans and goals in my future that I won’t let get away even if I end up working somewhere I hate.
I would love to work in a retail store that catered to my style, like lululemon or EMS. If I had a job like that right now I would still be able to write for my internship and shortly down the line I would open up a prosthetics / makeup effects online business. I have thought about doing this for such a long time. I would absolutely love to create my own masks and sell them online. I would be able to use my creativeness and love for effects towards creating an awesome little side business.
I have no idea what kind of job I am going to end up getting. I am going to get something soon though, I know it. I have kept my spirits high and I have continued to work hard at my personal goals during all of my free time. I am signed up for my first Half Marathon and it’s very nice to have all this time to run.
I would absolutely love to become a NYC food critic. I am trying to research everything I can about what it takes to become one. There are also a few classes I am interested in taking. I found a few schools in the area that offer food writing courses and I also want to take a cooking class. They are obviously pricey, but I’m going to look into them some more and hopefully I can take them sometime in the near future.
If anyone is looking for a hard working writer/blogger/film maker/food critic/fitness enthusiast, then I’m your girl!
Thanks for listening.
