Ramblings about entertainment, lifestyle and travel
“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” ~Twyla Tharp
Art allows people to be everything they are, everything they wish to be and everything they will never be. Having spent much of my childhood acting, playing music, writing scripts and creative stories, it is something that I couldn’t agree more with. So why did I then stop doing what I love most?
At 6 years old, you know that when you grow up you want to be a ballerina, a policeman or a doctor. At 15 you know that you want to finish school, preferably now.
At 18 you try to figure out what you’d like to do next – study, travel or get a job? So what happened to all of those dreams you had when you were little? Sure, a lot of them aren’t feasible. If they were, we’d have a serious problem with having too many doctors, ballerinas and policemen. Who, for example, would dream up a ?career? as a criminal or a Big Brother contestant? Without criminals, would we really need policemen?
Point is: somewhere along the lines we tend to forget what we’ve always wanted to do. At 22 – having not quite forgotten what that once was – my quest is to go back to what I have always been passionate about: the Arts. So what better way to start 2011 than with a blog talking about all the things I’ve always loved: music, film, actors and actresses and well, a bit about Apple and gadgets, because they’re just so much fun to play with.
Whoever is still with me, thank you! And now it’s your turn: what did you want to be when you were 6? Although you might have your dream job, there’s always something that you’ve stopped doing. So why not make 2011 the year where you take up painting again or running around in the woods? Which, admittedly, is difficult when you live in a big city like London.
Here’s to 2011!
