Meet Christianna from The Girl with the Blue Bow!

Age: 23
"The Girl With The Blue Bow" is a blog full of the amazing things that fill my life.  I write about my main love, music, as well as movies, books, fashion and random life happenings.  I have a link up called "What The Hell Wednesday" in which I share moments and things that made me say "what the hell" every week.  So, if you like to laugh, find new music/live shows to go see, or any of the other things listed, come stop by and say "Ello"!  

Top three personal dreams you have and how you hope to reach them? 

1. To one day run my own independent record label, or my own music magazine.  

2. To see the world

3. To become a truly successful music journalist, and maybe run P.R. for a band on the side.

Wait, was that kinda 5 dreams?  Oops.
Well, the only way to see the world, is to do it.  You have to stop saying "one day I'll see that" and you have to just buy a plane ticket.  Though I've been to a few places, I'm kicking things into high gear this summer and spending 7 weeks in Europe, seeing all I can see.
As for my music business related dreams, you could say that I'm already on my way there.   I'm a music journalist, but at the moment I can't quit my day job.  So, I'll be sending out resumes soon and I'll keep blogging away.  The rest will come with time and all the connections that I make!  I'm excited to see where I end up, and how things keep changing!  

What is the inspiration behind your dreams?  
I've always loved music.  It's a part of who I am.  It took me years to find where I fit into the music world, but now that I know where that is, everything is starting to make more sense.  I get a kick out of seeing bands and music artist succeed at what they do and there is nothing better then sharing their music with the world.  Or at least with the ones who want to listen.  There is also nothing better then finding a new band that you can't wait to tell everyone about, and  knowing that you actually get to.  It's brilliant!  

Best advice for someone trying to reach his or her dreams. 
Honestly, just do it!  Don't take no for an answer.  The answer you get, might be something you never expected.  See, you might wake up one morning and realize that you don't actually want to be on stage, singing music, you want to write about it.  The dream is still the same, it just changed a bit.  So if you have something that you love deeply, it will chase you around relentlessly, until you figure out where you fit in.  So also pay attention to the things that hunt you down relentlessly, because that is most likely the direction you should be taking!
