I really want my friends and family to be superstars.
No really, I do.
I am surrounded by incredibly talented and dedicated people, who are doing just extraordinary things. They all have the will and way to make HUGE impacts in their respective fields.
Maybe, just maybe, they will remember me and buy some of my writing/skills :)

In Honor of Mothers’ Day
I need some serious inspiration.
I’m drained beyond belief, and I’m not sure if I should blame it on my allergies, the intense work load at the end of the semester, or the fact that graduation is about 9 days away.
Let’s just say it’s probably a concoction of all of the above.
The worst part is that I want to be creative. I want to write something really brilliant right now but the best my fingers can come up is this rant about not having anything to come up with. Sigh, irony.
I keep bombarding myself with really great works from my friends live tv shows, my sister’s short films, the lush texts and stories of Paulo Coelho, to the incredible dialogue of Miss Diablo Cody.
I have all these wonderful swirling, bitter…yet hysterical ideas. I just gotta figure a way to get them out. Some might call this writers block, I prefer creative conundrum. She’s my old enemy. I hope this time she moves on to someone else’s creative flow quickly.

Carey Grant? Yes, please!
“I don’t know that I’ve any style at all. I just patterned myself on a combination of Jack Buchanan [musical comedy star of the 1920s], Noël Coward, and Rex Harrison. I pretended to be somebody I wanted to be and I finally became that person. Or he became me. Or we met at some point. It’s a relationship.”
