Wowzers, it’s been an intense, eye opening holiday season. I was going into the holidays with arms open ready to embrace  the moments with my wife and I was thrown a curveball. Thanksgiving was very nice with my family. I woke up the next day from a phone call that my cousin was found dead. I really didn’t know how to react to the news, because my last conversation with him was so positive and uplifting. I guess you never know what someone is going through internally despite how great a conversation is. I was devastated. I did my best to hide my wounds because I had career obligations in Hollywood with my new manager the following week. 

Okay Dylan, you got this…

Internalize all the bullshit in your life as usual.

So, I went to Hollywood not knowing what to expect. It actually turned out very well. Cameras, interviews, lights flashing, photos, networking etc. 

I ended up coming home on that Friday and made it to the tail end of my cousin’s reception. I gave his mother and father a hug and told them I loved them. 

You never know what life will throw at you. Trust in God for guidance.
