“The first step – especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money – the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.”
― Chuck Palahniuk
The Raving Gecko is my first step in controlling my culture, embracing the online world that I’m so often consuming but rarely contributing to. The internet is full of people who seize the moment, exploring their passions, whether it be buying a plane ticket on a whim or quitting their day job and following their true ambitions.
Although I’ve never been one to put myself out there, today I thought: ‘why not?’.
My name is Cara and I’m a film student from the North East of England.
Here’s to the future.
