First Design

The American dream. Well, something like that. I have told you a little about Hwy Americana. I think I did. I have taken the next step in branding and put it on a shirt. This is just the beginning. The original design. If you want to support and be a part of Hwy Americana order a shirt.

Here is the link http://hwyamericana.bigcartel.com

I think the design is pretty cool. But I have to say that.

Post college/the rest of my life

What are you doing with your life?
Oh, you graduated from college, that’s wonderful.
What did you graduate with?
Oh, that’s very neat.
What can you do with that degree?
Where are you working now?
Part time job huh? 
Don’t worry you will find something just right for you.

 

These are pretty common questions or phrases that I hear. Especially because I graduated with more of an art degree. Well art focused. Apparently if you are creative the likelihood of you snagging a job that pays well enough to support you is about as slim as meeting and playing a football game with David Beckham. His retired so that may be a little difficult. When you look at 5 to 10 years ago when people graduated from college and going from there to internships to jobs it was fairly common.
Today things are done different. We have had people come before us and tear down the door between regular humans and starting a new business and making it on your own. The possibilities are officially endless and the door no longer is being guarded by a gatekeeper. Thanks to the internet we can basically do anything. I see this as good and bad. Good because we can be creative and contribute wonderful things to the world. Bad because there are idiots in the world with a bunch of money and can now do whatever. LAME! Tar and feather them for their idiotic amounts of money they inherited.

As you can probably guess I don’t have a full time job. I don’t know what it is like to have money. I am okay with that for right now, but it needs to change. I have this belief that every person’s journey looks a little different.

I have this idea that we are all on this journey..on a highway…highway americana. We are contributing to culture past, present and future. We matter. We as in every person. All generations. Especially the upcoming generation who will be the future leaders. So cliche sounding, but it’s true. In addition to this amazing journey we all get to have in life; I want to be someone who gets to see the country I proudly call home. A road trip for the ages.

So that’s what I will be working towards this year.

A story

Dear anyone,

I know you may not know who I am and I don’t know much about you either. But one thing that connects us as humans is that we have dreams. We have a story. It may be different for each person, but we are in fact similar with a purpose.

We are all going down highway americana

Road Trip in the future!

Everyone has a journey or passion. The real story begins when you act upon it. I say let’s go after the dreams we have. That is what I am going to do at least.

Start my own brand. To encourage others to tell their story. To join Highway Americana.

Take a road trip across America to hear your stories and to see the beautiful country I was born in. All while promoting and selling my t-shirts i’ve designed along the way.
Updates coming soon on when they will be for sale.

Highway Americana

I love adventures. We all want them and we all need them. I wish that I could take road trips with everyone and get to know them and make this world a much happier place. We would all be a little happier if we took adventures to new places and captured the moments along the way.
I am going to try and do that.
Here goes nothing.

Live a little on Highway Americana

Seek to assist others

There are so many things that are happening in this world that we can’t comprehend. Like why there is hate and unkind words being said. The only way to make sense of why such a thing could happen is that these are the lessons life gives us.

I don’t ever want to be known as the person who was consistently in a terrible mood and wouldn’t listen to someone or whatever the case is. I just don’t understand why we as a generation have this persona where we are better and the world owes us. This is the reason we have so much hate in the world. Well that is the start. I don’t think we have enough time to talk about where all this hate is coming from.

The point of this is that we need to start being more positive in the way we speak to others and the way we engage in conversations. We can turn this around. With one conversation at a time.

I want to make my life’s goal to bring a platform for people to share their story and be proud of who they are. A place where seeing their goals is real and they are actively running after them. This world should be encouraging  others towards their goals and not tearing them down because they don’t like seeing people succeed.

Here is the deal. Be proud of who you are and where you came from. Even if it’s not a positive place. It is the start of your story and you need to own that and use it to be a better person.

Love to you all. Tomorrow England plays in the World Cup and I am so excited! So go and cheer for your team. The real team plays on Monday night at 6. USA!!!
