I just had a quick convo with one of my dearest friends, Viviana or “Vivi” for short, about life. She’s been living in Los Angeles for about 2 years now, following her dreams and being the ambitious,little go-getter that we all know her to be. Anyways, back to the conversation we had. We talked about our views and reasons as to why we’re here, how I can’t stand the fact that at times I feel as if we’re born just to work. There’s so much pressure for everyone my age to hurry up and pick a job, a career and start living life according to “the plan.” Fuck the plan. I’m born to live, to do what makes me happy and do it with good grace.
Vivi told me that she believes we’re all here to make a difference, to find our passion, to learn and grow both as a person and professional. Vivi will go far in her endeavors with her mindset. I mean, she’s partied at Tom Green’s house! She makes me a proud friend for sures. Love you, Vivers!
My professional journey has yet to begin, and yours has already started. I will look to you for inspiration if ever I feel that I can’t make it. I can. Even though in this moment, what I want to do most does not have a job title, I will continue to listen to my heart and hope I can make my difference in some way or another.
Currently my heart is telling me to have a beer, and that’s exactly what I’m about to do.
