I wouldn’t say all that, but do appreciate the thought and will certainly take it as a compliment - The internet is just a place where we are all overnight celebrities, at least ONCE in our digital lives. <3
Dulce, so you went from sitting middle row in Mr.Epley's class, to being successful in the career you chose. How did you do it? I would love some advice. Do you owe it to networking? How did you promote yourself? How would you advise me on getting the heck out of Avondale and into the big city!
Why hello there miss,
Well first off, let me begin by saying thank you for the kind words :) Always appreciate and am happy to see familiar faces in my inbox! As far as being successful - there are things far more detailed that come to mind beyond networking or promotion. My move to New York was somewhat of a unplanned, spontaneous 1-2 week trip that turned into a permanent stay/cross-country move as I arrived and fell in love with the city. Not too sure how I did it exactly, just know there were a lot of events that led up to it and toils/troubles that one must go through if making such a drastic transition - If you’re looking to move to New York, I do however advise you to plan it out; Look at places online you know you can afford, do research on areas/boroughs, make friends via online that you could see yourself friends with in real life once you get there…etc etc. ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that may come to mind, do it. New York is phenomenal, a true beauty at that - but it is also a monster, and when dealing with one you must always be prepared for the unpredictable. I do wish you the best of luck hun, it’s not easy but I know you can do it!
PS. Avondale is NOT so bad, but definitely see the world and move forward if you feel it is your calling <3
When I was in younger, I wrote daily; I wrote about life, wishes, dreams, goals, actions, and even deaths, births and new beginnings. Whether it had been literal or metaphorical, either way - I escaped through those lines; my paper and pencil guided me - were always there for me to hold me, comfort me and strengthen my persona in times of need. They truly became one when I spoke to them, they became HE and he became ME…I was a very figurative individual, and I relied solely on my writing:
HE WAS MY SHIELD AND SWORD
I was in love with his words, his quotes stole my heart, his novels my soul; every inch, every page, and with every changing chapter I was closer to someone I wished to become, closer to something I would never let go. I loved how we rolled around in the sheets, as I stroked him softly along every curve until we came to an end and had to start all over again. I laid in bed literally writing out my world, reading and rereading the breathtaking moments I wished to live - so on and so forth, eventually I reached a peak in which was a revelation. His letters, his intelligence his equally spaced characteristics, his touch - everything about him was perfection to me. I only wished to be his, and for him to only open up for me.
MY FIRST TRUE LOVE
Today I run back, as every girl has or will once in their lifetime, to what once was mine. I truly missed him, I had forgotten how good he felt, how amazing his touch was…his hand enclosed in mine. Almost lost something that had always been good to me. Never had he let me down or strayed…and for that I let him go. It is an immense mistake I’d made to run in fear of finding that special ‘one.’ My heart, my soul, my everything. His only flaw - a double life…but even then it was perfection as they both came together so beautifully…
MY PAPER, MY PENCIL, MY LOVE…
Oh, how I had missed him so.
I loved how he curled up in bed with me every night and just allowed me to pour all of myself into him - He was a listener, the most amazing one you’d ever find. He never whined, nor fussed - just took it all in without passing any judgment, and loved me for me.
I RUN BACK TO HIM TODAY…
Because I realize now what we had was REAL, and am ashamed it took losing him to come to my senses.
