I've always wished that my Mother would have gone with her original plan to name me 'Star.' When I tell people that, they typically furrow their brows, their expressions drowning in confusion. Sometimes they even ask 'why would you want to be named Star?'
'I don't really know,' I reply. 'It's just appealing to me, I guess.'
I'm not the type of person who usually has an incredible amount of meaning behind everything I do or say, or my likes and dislikes. I always think that if my first thought is 'I love it,' then I love it! When something appeals to me, I just go with it. Sometimes, I don't know why... the best way I can explain it is to say 'it's just me.'

Have a unique voice. If you're quirky, that's fine, let it show. Add a short, quick blurb about how you personally feel about the topic to spark some debate. Add a captivating title to your post.
How do you reset to be creative?
Intense workouts usually help the most. Taking care of any stressful situation is good, too, because it frees my mind so I can focus more on creative things, rather than worries.
What inspires or excites you?
I definitely get excited when I hear about new ways to go green. Especially when you can do it and still be hip and not feel like you're missing out.
I get inspired by simply stepping outside of my house. By talking to friends. Reading. My mind is always going, it never sleeps.
