Life is what you make it, so why don't people make the most of it? Dream big, but dream realistically. That means, don't sit there wishing something will happen, but never really doing anything to make it happen. Nothing comes easy in this life, but the things that you work for usually are the things well worth it in the end.
Lately, I've had a lot of people telling me, "You need to figure out what you're doing with your life." People don't seem to get it, unlike most kids my age, I already know what I'm doing. I have big plans for myself, and I'm already working on getting them into action.
It feels like nobody takes me seriously yet, but I'm not giving up. I know I'm talented, and I know I can suceed with this, I just have to keep trying. I have a lot of dreams, I want to one day be able to look back at my life, and go, "Wow, I can not believe I actually did all that." I don't want to sit there as an elderly woman recalling all the things I wanted to, and having to regret that I didn't.
It's going to take forever, and I will need help somewhere along the line, but I want to do a little of everything in the music promotion business. Not only do I want my website and magazine, but I want to have a clothing company, a record label, and most recently, I want to manage bands. I hadn't thought about managing bands until recently, but my mom put the idea in my head and now I can not get it out. Its all going to be a lot of work, but that's why I am working on one thing at a time, and eventually I'll have it all.
There's little things that I want. Like I want to have a band share my link one day. Not a local band that nobody's heard of, but a big band. Like I want Three Days Grace to one day know who I am, and post a link to an interview with them that I did.
I also want to not only witness an album be recorded, but take part in it. That's where the record label comes on.
Then there's a big thing, that I was just talking about with someone on Music = Life actually. I want to one day have VIP access to a festival overseas. I live in Florida, in America, and I want to one day have a press pass for a big festival like Soundwave in Austraila, or Download in the UK. I want to be able to walk up to one of the bands playing, look them dead in the eye, and say, "I traveled over four thousand miles just for this." You know they'd never forget that.
The furthest I've ever traveled for a concert was four hours, but the bands never knew that. I have gotten to surprise bands before by saying I was from the other coast of the state, but that's nothing compared to saying you flew out of the country just to interview them. All these rockstars leave their marks on the world, well now its my turn. I want to leave a mark on their world.
