Planning on moving out to Cali with my girl in about a year to do this acting thing.
Most of my family is out there so, Its not like I will be by myself. Honest truth my girl is the inspiration. Ol' girl's dream is to be in fashion and she has accomplished so much at such a young age I am secretly jealous of her. My girl is in the position to where she can drop out of school right now and work in fashion/modeling. She already had plans to move to Cali because she has a few connections out there. Right now she is working with Elite modeling. Her boss is best friends with the CEO of this talent agency and she said if I start taking classes at Second City (historic acting "playhouse") then she will get me a meeting with an agent. I will be starting classes this summer so we will see, if she is telling the truth or just blowin smoke.

My parents are all for this and have supported me in every move I have ever made. 2 years ago I packed my bags and moved to Chicago to go to school for graphic design and now I am leaving for Cali. Mom dukes said, "No matter what it takes, me and your father will support you in all your decisions, as long as you show that you are 100% committed."

I'm nervous but I am the type of person who doesn't sit around "wishing" I have always been the person to do what I want and follow what I want. Also if I fail, I will be moving to NY and applying my graphic design profession at an ad agency (I have connections)

Who on NT is following their dreams?

I quit my I.T. job to pursue a career in music. I have my G.I. Bill to fall back on if things don't work out exactly as I want plus I still have plenty of cash and equity in my home from working in Iraq as a contractor. I couldn't stand doing my 9-5 because it never felt like my purpose. Now my feet are to the fire and the clock is ticking.

Good luck to you. Hopefully I'll see you at the top.

It's amazing what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it. I found this out in the past 24 hours

Forget about what you can't do. Focus on what you will do.

Dream big dreams and make workable plans that will get you there. Then put those plans into action and do what you will do.

Allow the beauty and richness of your dreams to expand your concept of what you are willing to do. This is your life and you deserve to give yourself the very best.

Intensely feel the accomplishment in your imagination. Let that incomparable feeling of satisfaction push you forward.

Focus on what you will do and you'll discover that it is more than enough. You have within you the capacity, the ability and the drive to reach whatever dreams are meaningful to you.

Every day is an opportunity for richness and fulfillment. Feel what you will do, and why, and make today the best one yet.

The way I see it is, GO FOR IT! I mean really being young and just out of college is all about finding yourself and starting your life. And if I fail then at least I will have a great experience, and a story to tell my children. Not only that California is a  beautiful state and In-N-Out burger is always a plus

I am and I have started.

I just want to get to a point where I can pursue my dreams full time without being tied down to a 9-5.

My dream is to be a computer technician.

My Computer Maintenance teacher says I have a nack for it, that it just comes natural to me.

I can be doing labs but he has me disassembling computers cause he wants me to go to a competition where I can win a scholarship. Even though he lined up an interview for some dudes from NASA to talk to me about joining their program. He says their real interested in working with me, I wanna sit and talk with and see what they're all about but it's NASA so it HAS to be good.

But I really wanna be a great guitar player, I practice every day and I'm looking into lessons.

There's 2 things I'm fascinated by in life, Guitars and Computers I can be surrounded by both my whole life I would never get tired of it.

Music has been my thing, i almost made the "Making His Band" for P Diddy show last year. Missed other audition. So got dropped. Im still going after music though. Im going to finish up this business stuff at san diego state and head straight to berklee college of music in boston if my plans as a professional guitarist fall through.
