"If you ever had an asthma attack before you're short of breath, wheezing, the only thing you're trying to do is get some air. You don’t care about a basketball game, you don’t care about what’s on T.V., you don’t care about anybody calling you, you don’t care about a party. The only thing you care about when you're trying to breathe is to get some fresh air. That’s it! And when you get to the point where all you want to do is be successful as bad as you want to breathe, then you will be successful. Most of you say you want to be successful but you don’t want it bad, you just kind of want it. You don’t want it badder than you want to party. You don’t want it as much as you want to be cool. Most of you don’t want success as much as you want sleep. Some of you lost sleep more than you lost success. If you're going to be successful you have to be willing to give up sleep" -Eric Thomas

I'm off to New York again today. Tomorrow is my Seventeen Mag photoshoot! I was sort of rushing to do this post, I told myself when I got to New York, I'd post it. Well my flight was delayed three hours, so I came back home just to post it before I left. Dedication? I believe so. I love this quote above. It fits how I feel perfectly. I'm constantly working on myself to get where I want to be successfully. My social life is basically obsolete, I lose sleep, and I could care less about parties, chilling, anything of that sort. I'm a very complex person, so I'm never easy to explain, it's difficult describing who or how I am, but if you guys want to know how a piece of my mind works, that quote fits so well. Hopefully I have some extra time to take pictures this time around in New York. I have an outfit ready, but we'll see if I can get a few shots in before I head back out. Most of you know I'm a huge fan of sequin. I felt it was about time to bust out some sweaters, especially vintage sequin 80's sweaters haha. Wish me luck at my shoot loves! xoxo
