Hopes... and a Dream

Well, I don't have any photos to update with ~ just some news of some potential-pretty-serious-life-changing events that may surface within the next few weeks or so. Yet there are certain forces that are attempting to prevent them from happening, but I won't let them follow through. And while I'm trying to let the positives outweigh the negatives of the situation, it's not always easy.

It's been a secret desire of mine to move to Cali for about four years now, ever since I started getting more into graphic design and figuring out what I wanted to do with my life. However, I was young then and didn't have the confidence that I feel I have now. And maybe a part of me was a little scared at the idea of starting a brand new life in such unfamiliar territory. Yet through the years, I did attempt that fresh start, keeping a safe distance of only three hours from home. There were times that I wasn't sure if I was going to make it, but something always pulled me through that last glimpse of hope.

Now I'm hoping to add twenty more hours to that original three... and while a part of me is sad for the day that I will have to leave this place, another part of me is content in the fact that I know it will all work out in the end. I have to believe that, no matter what happens or what obstacles try to stand in my way. I'm not backing down this time. And I'm excited about fulfilling a dream... even if I have to do it alone.

"Tell my mother, tell my father
I've done the best I can
To make them realize this is my life
I hope they understand.
I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance."
