Keep Going, Keep Growing.
I’ve always told myself that no matter how hard a situation can get to always keep going. I understand it is late at night so if I am not making any sense to you, well shit hopefully I am. School is over for now, Yay summer vacation for some of us and for others summer school is coming up (not looking forward to it).
Fun fact: Stressed spelled backwards is desserts. Dang it, it’s 1am and ice cream sounds good right now. Being a college student you definitely know the struggle of stress, seriously it never goes away. Being a college student you constantly worry about school, the assignments and what the future holds, oh I almost forgot the most important worry of all THE BILLS. It is scary just thinking about it. I want to start off by saying, school is clearly not my cup of tea but I know as a daughter who came from parents who immigrated to america for a better life I always wanted to make my parents proud and be the first in my family to go to college. How fucking awesome would that be?? “Mami y Papi, I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Nannying.” “HOLY SHIT” I’m joking, it wouldn’t be in nannying but those who know me know that I have been nannying for almost all my college years so I easily learned how to become a mom. Seriously, contact me if you need a nanny.
Storytelling isn’t just so much fun. There is literally a new story in our lives every single day if you really think about it. My goal is to be a storyteller to where people can relate to and go “AHH” or “SHIT.” I want people to know that they are not the only ones going through a certain situation or pain but also to be educated. For example, I have been working in a film about recreating my grandma's story and showing the world what really happened to her when she was trying to cross the border but to also educate the culture in Guatemala and its authenticity .I know as a young woman like me I get too inspired with projects and enjoy talking about them but I never get it done to the point where it is finalized. I have a firm passion in my ideas and work. I'm not apathetic about any specific projects but it is tough for me to finish something I started because I jump to something completely different every time and I mean something completely different. Let me tell you how crazy I really am. I go from shooting films, blogging, youtubing, script writing, and then my creative ass decides “hmm, let me start a hat business.” See I told you crazy right. BUT, did I ever accomplish finishing any of it or consistently keeping my things up to date? no. It is never too late to start or finished what I started.
Throughout the years, I have learned that if I keep lagging my work no one will ever find out about it. Point of the story is no matter what you are working on keep working and do not stop no matter how difficult it can get, it will be rewarding at the end.
