A couple of weeks ago I came down with a tummy bug, I was pretty sick. I had a day off work and popped on Lord Of The Rings the Two Towers into the dvd player and fell asleep. The next day I woke up fine, but of course I couldn't not watch the rest of the movie and then the Return Of The King. Every night before bed over the last couple of weeks I would watch a little more, until finally I got to the end. Now I have seen these movies over and over but this time around I felt inspired. The makeup and special effects were singing to me and I had an epiphany... hey I could do this, I could be the one creating these visions!
I have been doing a few makeup shoots here and there but to be honest I don't feel like my creativity is being channelled or challenged. I am currently looking into Special Effects and Film/Television makeup courses. They are extremely expensive and even more so as I will probably attend a school in the USA. I have been in contact with Cinema Makeup School in LA and I will arrange an appointment to see them when I visit in August. It's all very exciting, and I am loving having aspirations right now. I hope you all are working towards something great also. Nothing is out of reach; if you believe, you will succeed.
That's the other thing, I have my first overseas trip planned next month. Can you believe it has taken me this long, I am 28 and now just getting out there. It has taken many years to get the maturity and Independence to be comfortable enough though. It goes to show that timing is everything. I will be flying into LA then to Birmingham Alabama where my friend lives. We will then have 2 weeks to drive around and explore the Southern parts of the USA. I fly back and stay in Beverly Hills overnight and will spend the whole day shopping. Any great shopping centres you guys want to fill me in on, please do. YAY!
