Shoot Your Way to the Top!

There are some people out there that are so incredibly filled with positivity you can't help think 'wow, is this real?' Has NY jaded me so much that the purest form of joy is foreign?

My friend Monique is one of those people. She's so beautiful, so talented, so motivated. Anyone can learn a lot from this lady. She's starting a kickstarter campaign with her husband about empowering artists to create their own work on little to no budget.
Its a 'How-To' for any creative and applies, not only to the movie industry but others as well. It's about GETTING creative with your resources when you have very few.

Here's a link to the Kickstarter page. Any donated amount helps.
Please take 3 minutes to support the production of this documentary!

No Texas

Welp- the boyfriend and I broke up. (back in Sept)
It's been rough. Very rough.
Many reasons but one in particular was his thinking I didn't want to move down there. I'm not going to lie- it wouldn't have been an easy move for me but in the end, I would have done it for us. I would've made the most of it and had a successful career down there. In fact, I did want all of that, the wonderful partner in crime, the house, the yard, etc..I get caught up in things, fantasies, dreams and I think a lot of it he took literally. My friends who know me, know that it is just that, a dream. For example, I would love to live in Italy and work in fashion there- now lets be real, am I going to? Not at all, its too far from my family. I know even from my last post, the few weeks I had been starting the semester, I was getting excited at the prospects of the fashion industry. So I'm guilty of getting excited.
I just can't help thinking that the move was just around the corner and he freaked.
I also can't help thinking that wow, the guy who was supposed to love me forever, had a ring for me and a house for me and everything, isn't willing to try and work through a terrible fight. I know we all need time to heal from bad arguments. I'm willing to forgive but I guess he's not. and that hurts the most. letting go hurts second most.
