This project is a lot harder than I originally thought it would be. I didn't think it would really require me to come out of my comfort zone.. I was wrong, and I'm not much for coming out of my comfort zone, haha. As I was researching questions to ask this certain individual, I came to realize just how hard and personal this interview would be. I will try my best not to get emotional. This is a subject that really hits home.

Wowza! I never thought a "school-related" project would be so fun and thrilling. This project is literally full of never ending surprises... from finding individuals wanting to network on about.me, posting blogs like this to "brag" about my stuff, to finding more individuals to interview for my documentary about substance abuse; and if any of you know me, you know that I love thrills and surprises, lol. If anyone has any suggestions or positive commentary to help me with this project, please let me know!!! I'd be willing to listen.

Today has been fun.. I started writing down information to contact a couple of people in order to receive more information for my project. I created an about.me account today, and I am so stoked to start networking with people. I found a person on that site that is a recovering alcoholic, but she has her own intervention and addiction service. That inspires me so much. My mom was an alcoholic, and ever since then, something inside of me sparked. I've been intrigued by the subject for as long as I can remember. It is my dream to become a substance abuse counselor, and I am willing to do as much as possible as I can to come in contact with as many people as possible in order to help me achieve my dream.

This project is coming along great. I have yet to call those women back who contacted me about the questions I was going to ask. BUT I did come in contact with a family friend about some information. She is so great. She fed me with lots and lots of stuff to get started.

I'm SO excited!!! The people I've been trying to "network" with and find information from contacted me back! One of them actually called me last night. I sent emails to a couple of women asking if they would be willing to answer a few questions for this project (documentary) I'm putting together. I'm going to call both of them this afternoon. This project is so much fun! :)
