Time to Ditch the "I Wish's"/"Someday's" and Make Them Happen!

I've always had a drive to want to do better in everything I do—extremely competitive, yet my lack of confidence held me back—leading to countless moments of me thinking to myself, "I wish..." or "One day/Someday..." and not getting around to doing something about it until much, much later.

It wasn't until this past year that I feel I became clear about what I wanted in life—but how to get it, I had no clue.  Honestly, I still have no clue, but I know for a fact a large factor that what hinders me is my inability to be efficient and put too much on my palate of things I need to do.  After taking a year of classes at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena exploring every single possible option—I found myself striving in Graphic Design, and among colleagues and peers who were able to enrich me in multiple ways.  I also found myself having a bigger thirst to exceed in everything I wanted to do.

The problem is, there is so much I want to do!  I always wish for more hours in the day, as I currently work 8am-5pm, drive a commute from the OC to DTLA (so that's another 2 hours gone), and find myself left with only 4 hours on the weekdays to do whatever it is I need to do, as well as weekends—that is, if I decide I don't want to have a life and just try to "work" and "hustle" all the damn time.

I will be updating as I go through this course, and after reading all of the reviews, I feel hopeful—wait no, thats the wrong mindset—I KNOW I will make shit happen, because life doesn't always hand you everything on a silver platter.

Time to stop daydreaming and start making it into reality!

"Dream your dreams with open eyes and make them come true."

Here are my GSD quiz results:

I have so much I want to do and I feel like I am running out of time, all the time.  Just a few things on my list:
• Finally make my damn website
• Create more works to update & put into my portfolio (and onto my website)
• Learn photography and go to car events to start a lifestyle photography blog
• Start a business (a design agency? a clothing line? SO MANY THINGS, that I can't decide yet)
