When I was 15 years old, I was introduced to the late great Marlon Brando. My drama teacher announced that the musical for that year was to be Guys and Dolls, and upon doing my research I went out and bought the DVD. I remember my reaction vividly, as if it was just yesterday...my heart began to race not only by his astonishing Roman God good looks, but he was a force of an actor...who was this man? And how did I not know he existed until now...sure I had seen The Godfather years prior but I didn't put the two together. It was during my discovery (or rediscovery, I should say) of Brando, when I knew I really wanted to be an actor. I studied his every move, watched every film, read every book (I have countless films and books in my collection that I usually turn to when I'm feeling a little uninspired). He was my everything, and up until I met Geo...I thought there was no other perfect man in the world than him. Too much? Well it was...my entire high school knew of my obsession. So why bring this up, do you ask? Sometimes, when I think about my chosen career path, I start to question why I do what I do. Why I put myself through the heartache of rejection, and love the rush of waiting for an answer...and then I see him, and I am reminded. He is the reason why I fell in love with acting and always will be the main reason.

Of course, I wanted it, but for $135...it was a little too pricey for me. Still had loads of fun styling around it though, and here's what I came up with:
