For a few years in high school, I was convinced I was going to become a famous film director. I had made several films with my frousins, neighbors, and in school. I had a notebook full of opening scenes for movies. I practiced my Oscar speech in the mirror. This dream eventually went the way of other dreams, like being in the Olympics, becoming Miss America, and being elected the first female president.
One of the items on my 27 list is to “Explore Astoria, Queens” for three main reasons:
My frousin (“it’s a family thing”) Christie just moved there
I don’t want to be one of those people who refuses to go to the other boroughs besides Manhattan (and there are plenty of people like this…)
Everyone I meet from Astoria is awesome and does something fun and creative with their lives that I wish I could do
