Full name?: Stalking Gia

Position / Job title?: Artist / Songwriter

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I knew exactly what I wanted out of life from an early age, in a way that immediately made me an outcast. I never dreamt up an unrealistic job title, I’ve always set forth in the motion that I was to be a songwriter.

It’s That Dreaded Time of Year: Tax Season…

I am terrible when it comes to money. My parents are great. They save, they plan ahead, they live within their means… Not to mention both of them are CPAs. In the past I have made little to no effort at these things, but I do take them into consideration more and more as I get older.

When it comes to my spending habits I’m very aware of the areas I need to cut back on: meals out, Starbucks coffee or that extra pair of shoes. And while being aware has helped me take steps (fancy steps, I might add,

What was missing from the picture? All
