Hello, Hollywood

So here's something new that I've need waiting to share for months now...

I am officially living in Hollywood, CA.

Can you believe it?! Whose life am I living?

Yesterday, I officially moved half of my stuff over to my new place, just 10 minutes away from the heart of Hollywood. My new place? Oh, it's just a little RV that a family is renting out on their property. HOW CUTE!

I've ALSO started attending....wait for it...

The Los Angeles Film School!

Ah! Again, whose life is this?? Mine??

I'm majoring in the Animation and Visual FX program that will take about 3 years to complete. It's a condensed program, so each month will be a different course, and only once course at a time. It's so fun going to school with a bunch of nerds...because I'm a nerd, too!

I'm so excited to continue this journey in the City of Stars. It's been anything but easy since moving out here 2 1/2 months ago, but I know it's worth it; I'm following my dreams!

I encourage you, whoever reading this right now, that if you have a dream that seems impossible, that seems like you could never actually accomplish it, that makes you feel that you're not smart enough to do it anyways...

If I've learned anything from the residents of LA, it's that chasing your dreams is the best decision you could ever make, no matter the cost.
