5 Signs You Should Not Date Him/Her

1. They have no friends
 - The fact that they have no friends could mean a lot of things. Maybe they just moved into town and haven't had a chance to meet anyone, maybe they're anti-social, rude, or shy. When your significant other has no friends that can either be a good thing or a bad thing. It really depends on the person that you are. Do you like spending every second with your bf/gf? I know I didn't. Them not having friends means that there is more pressure on you to be with them if you don't want to be with them every second. Although, them not having friends might be a good thing if you are the clingy type.

2. Your friends don't like him/her
- Your parents are not always the best judge of who is good for you. Parents are very picky and literally only want the best for their children, but if your friends don't like him/her then you should see what reasons they have for those feelings and think it over a little.

3. He/ she makes you feel like crap about yourself
- There's a difference between someone trying to make you healthier because they want you to live a long time and someone who is criticizing you and telling you that you should not eat too much.  You need to be with somebody who makes you confident not somebody who makes you feel like poo. Also, be with somebody who accepts you for you.

4. He doesn't pay for the first date
- Called me old fashioned, but I feel like the man should always pay for the first date. If a girl denies you wanting to pay, she's being polite, still pay. It's ok later on in the relationship to take turns, but if a guy doesn't pay for the first date chances are he's not a gentleman.

5. He/ She is not family oriented

- A guy that is not family oriented is a red flag. If a guy isn't close to his family then there's a chance he will keep you away from your family and tension will rise in your family. In the long run, do you want to be with someone who doesn't like family time? Didn't think so

Set Life

 As many of you know, I am a nanny and film student. I will be retiring from child care in August after four years in the service (ha). My school schedule will no longer allow me to pick up the kids on time and stay with them. I am deeply saddened to leave this family. They are the most kind people that I have worked for and I have grown very attached to them. Anyway, this past month I have been alternating weeks of my nanny job with my sister. She will be going to college in August and really needs to start saving up so I offered to let her work for my family so I can also have some time off which has been great and I have had great opportunities during that time off.

   My dream has always been to work in the film industry, and as many of you know the industry in Atlanta has been growing for quite some time now. Back in March, I was an extra for The Vampire Diaries which was a dream come true. I really like that show and Ian Somerhalder (every woman needs a sweet guy like that) After that, I really wanted to be an extra again, but my school schedule and work schedule would not permit to do so. This summer during my time off, I have been an extra in two feature films; Solace and the remake of Endless Love. SUCH A DREAM COME TRUE!!! JESUS! I don't care about my screen time, but seeing how movies are filmed and seeing huge actors do their job is amazing!! I've seen Anthony Hopkins, Alex Pettyfer, Abbie Cornish, Robert Patrick, and Joely Richardson. I've made lots of friends that have similar aspirations like mine and I have also made friends that are on the crew. Something that made me feel very special was the fact that the wardrobe lady from Vampire Diaries (Edee) recognized me on the set of Solace and asked if I had worked with her before. Such a kind lady!
     After being an extra in these movies, I have come to a realization that I do not want to work in post production, I want to be on set and see the action happen. I either want to be an actress/producer/director or all of them haha. I will update you guys on my other activities as an extra that I am sure will come this summer.
