  1. I am really glad I found your blog today. I realized pretty recently that writing helps me think and calms me down. Your advice really helped 😀
    Thank you


  2. Going back to your post: Want to burn everything I write…please don’t. You will regret it later. No matter what it is, keep it…you may need it later, it may even end up being one of your most inspiring motivations later on. 😉


  3. You have a great eye for words; you also have a great future ahead of you in the beautiful world of writing. Don’t ever lose that spark that makes your readers want more. Any questions you have, come find me.

    Keep your pen busy!
    Your Friend & Creative Writer – Alex.


    1. Thank you. I’m so glad to have you on my side. Likewise, I’ll be there for you if you ever need anything. Comments like yours make me realize how grateful I am to have the support I do. Love your blog by the way. 🙂
      Your Friend and Writer Forever,


      1. Of course you didn’t know. Because I didn’t tell you until I told you.
        Hope you have fun with those little comments.


  4. Do you have tips on making it as a dancer….how do you support your passion? I have to get a job to help pay for classes (dance/school) and I feel demotivated just thinking about all the time I will be putting into a job that I might not even like. It’s hard because I’m very sensitive and anything I choose would have a huge impact on my entire life.

    I think your blog is amazing. You’re a great writer!


    1. If you can maybe try to find a job related to dance or one of your other passions. See if you could work at your dance studio or something similar. I know that isn’t always possible, so find an aspect of your job that you do like. Yeah I’m quite picky too. I hope everything works out for you though. For me balancing my interests like dance with my obligations such as school keeps me motivated.
      Thank you!
