Just want to keep track of my 52 drafts and we are getting that down to zero soon!
Original article: Warning: Not fully finished but I hope you get the point! 2nd warning here! Unofficially called my “Stuck In Draft Inbox Series”
October 18th, was the day that my body was no longer perfect. I earned my first round of surgery scars.
Months prior, I was a musician, actress and model. Around March 2016, I felt a stabbing pain that I could not describe…..
It got to the point where I had to live vicariously through friends. I did not feel like moving, traveling, eating, breathing, especially the day right after surgery. I hope no one has to
(HAS TO DO WHAT? NOT SURE WHAT I WANTED TO SAY HERE EITHER. Remind someone to take the computer away after a surgery. Period)
Of course it’s better to actually be doing it then actually living it through other people right? Sure. I wished (and still continue to wish my friends) good fortune. There’s a special freedom in not being jealous or comparing your life to others. I learned this early in life and it has served me well.
I would rather my friends have a good time then spend hours cleaning up my puke. I hope they know this about me by now. And if they actually want to, great.

Sure, my passions are acting, modeling, and music. But little did I know that you can get paid to actually travel.
I have written for the huffington post, medium, indianapolis star. I am a lifetime writer. I write songs.
I notice that my friends really love to travel. Those instagram photos brought me joy when I was in the hospital. they would never know that unless they read this. I wondered if they would be interested in learning how to travel and not pay a dime (or very little)? Infact would they be interested in getting paid while traveling the world? Instead of just a 7 day vacay, why not 14 or 21 days? Why not fire your boss?
There are several aspects to…
(And I’m not sure what I wanted to say after this point, I was recovering from surgery and not writing straight anyways. )
