I’m pretty sure I was a Cali girl in a past life.
It’s a place for dreamers and it’s always been a dream of mine to move there.
People say, when you go there you either love it or you hate it. I’ve been to LA a few times now, and I love it. Each time a little more. Maybe it’s the sun, but there’s definitely something in the air.
My father is a realist. He’s not in to all the glitz and glam of Hollywood. Doesn’t impress him, but it makes my eyes light up. He’d always say it’s not our lifestyle, but why can’t it be? I’ve always dreamed of red carpets and attending award shows, as I’m sure a lot of you have. There’s nothing wrong with that. And there’s nothing wrong with dreaming. Your dreams make you. If you don’t dream, then what do you really strive for?
Last night I saw La La Land starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. I love musicals. Though, going into this movie I wasn’t sure what to think of the idea of a new style take on classic Hollywood. Must say, I was pleasantly surprised.

The beginning was a little slow for me, and I honestly thought I was going to hate it. I really didn’t want to, so I tried to keep an open mind.
Until, I Ran.
That was my turning point. From then on, the story picked up and it was exactly what I was hoping it would be. And then… the ending happened. Not gonna lie, it made me mad. I admire the reality of it and that they gave us a sort of optional ending to imagine, but it still upset me. (I don’t want to divulge into detail, if you haven’t seen the movie, but I recommend it for you old school movie buffs).
After leaving the theatre, it got me thinking. Thinking of my dreams and what I hope to accomplish. Not just in my life, but this year alone. I’m trying to conquer 2017 with the attitude of, you never know unless you try.
Because seriously, you never know the outcome, unless you try. And if you don’t like the outcome, try and try again.
