I'm just me. A twenty-eight-year-old saving money to study abroad in Ireland next year, with dreams of living in New York and working on Broadway.
I grew up in a small town out west, in Northern Nevada. I spent my childhood taking dance classes and performing in plays and musicals, attending touring performances at the major theater in the city, dreaming of one day being on Broadway, and wishing to travel to and study in Ireland. After graduating from university last year with a degree in Psychology with a concentration in Forensics, I decided to go back to my true passion: performing.
When I'm not dancing or working, I'm writing. I've got several novels written, and am working on a couple others, but I have nothing published. I also write opinion pieces on things I feel passionate about, especially in regards to the mental health community.
As someone who suffers from Bipolar Paranoid Schizophrenia, breaking the stigma of mental illness is something I'm exceedingly passionate about, and as a sufferer of Lupus, I try to educate people on what exactly Lupus is and what it does to the body.
I am currently working as the morning manager at the McDonald's in my hometown, trying to put $400 every paycheck away so that I can attend the drama program at Queen's University in Belfast, Ireland next September. Currently, I have about $3,000 in savings, a $3,000 scholarship and have roughly $20,000 left to save. I'm hoping with the hours I work, that I can save up enough to go.
I started this blog so that I could write down my thoughts, my opinions and just... whatever pops into my head. I'll try to stick to a general theme, but there are no guarantees. It all depends on what pops into my head at any given moment. Sometimes I'll be brutally honest, and other times, I'll be around the bush until the bush dies. It all just depends. Other than that, I can't imagine that it'll be a very exciting or interesting blog to read. My life really isn't all that exciting. In fact, I'm... rather boring, to be honest. But, I figure I'll give it a shot.
