Many people ask me why I moved all the way to Sweden from Los Angeles. Why didn’t you stay? Why did you move from the musical capital of the world to be in tiny Tingsryd? Isn’t it better it LA? The answer to all these questions is because of opportunity and education. Staying in one place doesn't make you grow as a person, you become familiar and comfortable with your surroundings. The music industry is one of the hardest industries to tap into. If I cannot handle change and hardships then there is no way I’m ready for the music world. There is always going to be change, competition, hardships and so many ups and downs throughout life and the only way to grow as a person and learn is to face those changes, stand up to the hardships.

When I first heard about my school I lived in Denver Colorado and I could’ve stayed there comfortably but I had the opportunity to move to LA and experience a new school, new changes a different culture. For the past three years, I’ve moved three times and I’ve learned more about myself if those three years than I did 15 years of my life. Without taking risks there is no way to see the world and what it has to offer.

GO! Move half way across the world, take the next bus, train or go on a hike. Take risks it's okay. Explore your surroundings and learn to get up and enjoy life.

I love mornings, it is the best part of day. I am a very organized person with a strict routine that I follow each morning. I wake up earlier than I need to so I don't feel rushed or end up late to class. I wash my face right away to get rid of puffy eyes and to clear out my skin. Then I move straight to makeup which takes me about 20 minuets. After that it's breakfast I enjoy oatmeal and fruit or egg white(poached, fried, boiled. etc). Then I get dressed which doesn't take too long because the night before I check the weather and plan my outfit accordingly. Then I have about 30 minuets to pack my bag, clean up my room and make sure I have no schedule changes.

Starting positive in the morning can effect your whole day. When I'm calm and relaxed in the morning I'm more relaxed during the day and feel like I have my control over what happens during my day. A long morning routine isn't for everyone but it can really help to find something you love and start your day doing it.

Today was pretty chill I definitely caught up on my beauty sleep and it felt amazing! Then my mom and I decided to go to Växjö to do some shopping. Then we went to Pinchos and had apps! On the bus ride home my mom and I couldn't stop laughing. It's moments like this with my mom that I treasure life gets too serious sometimes and sometimes it's good to have a good laugh. When we got home we started a little project.

When I was younger I gave everything away I gave away money if I had it, snacks if someone asked, if I had it I’d give it away. It seems that is still my nature. I’m not saying giving is not a good thing but sometimes giving too much of yourself leads to losing yourself. I’ve had to learn this and continue to learn this lesson over and over again and it all comes down to balance. Balancing a social life, school life, work, family and personal time. My dream is Musical theater when I learned the reality of my dreams I backed away and told myself it wasn't possible too much completion too much of a gamble I knew I wanted it but I wasn't sure i was willing to accept the struggle. I search for other careers that incorporated my creativity. I finally accepted that a career in music is what I am meant for. To keep myself on this path having a strict schedule is key. Learning when to take time for yourself, when to say yes or no. No matter what keep your eye on the prize, how you're going to get there through trial and error. Every day I remind myself how much fun it is to listen to music and jam out to my favorite songs that nothing will or can replace the joy of a tune. Do not be afraid of your dreams, go for them no matter how big or small. It’s okay to take risks because life has so much offer and the more you learn about your dreams the closer you are to making them a reality.

When an opportunity comes you need to take it, go after your dreams with fearlessness. I've learned a lot of taking control of my life and deciding what is right for me. Going to a music school means that there is a lot of competition and a lot of people will try and tear you down but it is so important to keep your eye on the prize and focus on you. Yesterday I encountered many life changing events, I got a person invitation from one of the stars in the musical Hair and got to see Gothenburg Opera. It is a beautiful theater with state of the art in-house facilities for everything from costume design and making, set building, dance studios, singing rooms etc. The Opera always has more than one show running, they have ballet, opera and musicals all year.

Good afternoon. Earlier today my mom and I went on the hunt for a few things in the mall and couldn't find anything we were looking for! I've noticed in in Sweden there is limited choice for clothing. There is not much variety compared the the states where you can find so many different stores. I think it's really fun to explore pop up shops and second hand stores for more variety and a different look.

Shopping is so much fun but can be expensive and limiting. My favorite thing to do is look for a good deal and sale. Over the past couple of days I bought a winter peacoat, real leather jacket, pants, sweaters a few more things all for under 2000kr, AMAZING! Sale shopping is great but only get it if you really want/need it. It does not matter if something is free if it's just going to take up space it's not worth it.

Sweden has so much to offer. There are so many beauty cities all around, Gothenburg is one of my favorites. Today my mom and I are planning on doing some retail therapy and then some exciting stuff later today. I get the opportunity to meet the star of the musical Hair. When it comes to getting what you want connections, kindness and passion are always the essentials.Being in the right place at the right time. Always put a smile of your face and enjoy what life has to off,er.

Later tonight I want to share with you my travel tips, and a little haul and ootd. Have a good day all!
