OLD HOLLYWOOD

It seems as if it's harder to be known for a set of skills nowadays.

Last night was the night, I attended the musical 'Kinky Boots' and I had the best time of my life (which led to my decision of pushing my acting career even further.) It was the most magical thing that I've ever seen in my entire life; bright lights, drag queens, dancing, singing - it was all just so, magical. I have never had that feeling before. There are no words to explain last night.

Before the show I assumed that the best part of my day was buying 5 magazines at Amoeba but by no means can I compare both. I'll definitely be going way more often, to musicals of course.

Besides that, I've been working on my book, it's been about a month since I've been working on it but I'm a bit scared about writing it. I'm putting my entire life on it, well not all of it but most of it. Putting all this fear aside; I'm excited, for the future, for my career, for many things that are yet to come.

Yeah, yeah fame would be fun but I don't "just" want to be famous. I want to be known for my talents. The truth is, these days you can just have a crazy instagram with a crazy amount of followers, an Hermes Birkin bags and BAM!, suddenly you're on a reality tv show. What about actually being talented? Being a "star". It seems as if it's harder to be known for a set of skills nowadays.

Don't get me wrong, I love this generation. I love the little improvement that has been giving towards acceptance but I equally dislike so many things, being fame-thirsty is one of them.
