Photo shoot with Jessy Dodd
The other day I went on a crazy photo shoot day- I drove out to Costa Mesa, thank GOD NO TRAFFIC! Zoomed there in 40 minutes, got my makeup done- thanks to Roxanne Galan (amazing makeup artist and of course, will be my future makeup artist. People get on my good side now cuz I’ll be BIG someday, not just big in Japan, big everywhere). Had an hour photo shoot, then drove back to Silverlake to grab my cello, then met up with Jessy for another photo shoot at a cool looking church, then drove up the mountains to shoot there.
Probably the most tiring day of my week, but also invigorating.
Then I had this BIG awakening the other day. I’m almost 24, that was the year that I thought I should travel the world. It’s the perfect year of crossroads, freedom and identity. I finally have nothing, no obligations, no big responsibilities, no “family” (though my friends and fam will always be there)…so I had several ideas!
1. Travel the world as an Asian Gypsy- bring my jewelry to sell (see how far I can go…)
2. Bring no money, like, maybe 100 bucks, and see what happens.
3. Teach at camps
4. LATIN AMERICA!
5. Go to Taiwan to finish the ending of my book (this will be a surprise)
6. DJ! Finally, hopefully. It’ll be great to tour………
The last months I learned to let go of identity based on my work, income, and to do list. I learned to live in the moment, be, and love people for who they are. I am learning to appreciate the good of people, and not focus on what they’re not doing right.
