In Memory

What a week this has been. =\

I lost a close friend this past weekend. Her name was Carmen, and she was beautiful inside and out.

We met on the forum that the Paranormal Research Society has on their website. We commented on a few posts together; we private messaged each other; and then we began to speak on AIM. We spoke about everything you can think of, and then some. When I was having a rough time and needed a shoulder, I'd turn to her, and she would do the same for me.

They say that online friends aren't the same as "IRL" friends. I find that to be..well, pure bullshit. I've found a lot of my closest friends online, and to me, they are as important as family.

Carmen, you were one of the greatest influences of my life, and for that I thank you. I looked up to you while we spent our time together; I will continue to do that for forever. I loved you like a sister, and always will. Thank you for the opportunity you gave me to know you and become close with you. This week has not been easy-everything reminds me of you, and for some reason, I can't get the tears to stop coming. I know they will soon..and I look forward to that, because I know you wouldn't want me to be sad about your crossing over. I miss you hunny. I love you. <3

And so the world turned, and things were left undiscovered.......

Hmm...where to start another blog post.......this is highly overdue. Sorry loves.

So, I've been doing some research on this thing called The Zeitgeist Movement. I find it to be incredibly beautiful. It is about a reformation not only of this country, but the world as a whole. I encourage everyone reading this to go to this link, and watch both of the films involved: For those interested I can also link you to the home site, in which you can become active in the forums, community, etc. I very much encourage this movement and encourage you all to pass it forward. This world is in need of a major change, and until everyone steps up, it will not happen. This is me, taking charge. <3

Dance classes are going well. I'm very much proud of my kids. They are all hard workers, and talented, and beautiful souls. I very much look forward to the rest of this season, and the ability to watch them all grow as dancers as well as individuals. <3

Been spending alot of time with friends lately, many of whom I haven't had the chance to spend time with in forever. I'm starting to get close to one of them, and while I'm just enjoying him now, I'm anxious to see what the future holds..though, I'm terrified that it holds more pain. I suppose we will see what happens.

Enough for now, it is late and I am tired, and tomorrow is going to be a long day. I hope everyone is doing well. <3

A fast update with a promise for a better one upon my awakening.......

So, after linking a new (but dear =]) friend here, I skimmed through the first postings I had created upon the formation of this blog.

Note to the world: please disregard anything you may see about Chrix, his family, etc.

I kindly thank you, for not allowing the lies to be put in your mind as they were into mine.

Here is the promise to bring you a positive update when I wake..been up all night speaking to a wonderful man. =] Now, I need sleep.......

And so comes the end of a day.......

So, while I have no specific topics to discuss tonight, I figured I would come and write a bit anyways. Today has been a day off of the dance jobs, and a day of reflection. I've made an awful lot of realizations today-some good, others bad-and can proudly say that I have not only been told that I have grown as a spirit, but I can feel it as well.

When I think back to being hurt so many times in my past, the spirit inside of me takes flight. I'm starting to learn to hang on less to pain and more to love. After all, it is love that guides us and heals us and allows us to grow. It is that need to take flight that is what will ensure my grace and ability to conquer this lifetime.

I've rekindled an old friendship, and tonight we had the first "deep" discussion. This friend is someone that I have always looked up to, and has always been there for me to pick me up and brush me off and push me onward again, at my own pace. You know who you are, and for that I thank you. I only hope that one day I will be able to do the same for you-not to see you hurting inside, but to show you the care that you have shown me.

Throughout the day I've also given thought to these friends that "cannot trust anyone anymore" because of something one person did to them. I've been in that position, and I can honestly say that while pushing others away is not the thing you SHOULD do, I support those of you that are doing so. I'll be right here waiting to be picked back up again like a bad habit, and this time I just pray that you have grown in order to avoid that leave of absence again. This is your one and only opportunity to turn your back on me and know that when you try and face me again I will still be standing there.

Today is the first baby step in moving forward from my own pain. Note to self: I'm so very proud of you. We can do this.

Oh, what a crazy life we lead.......

Well, followers, I do realize it has been quite some time since I have been here.

Things have changed so drastically it is not even funny. Found out that the man that I was head over heels in love with, and believed was my soulmate, was actually a lie. His name, our relationship, his past, everything...was a lie. Needless to say, I have spent the past two months attempting to reestablish the life I had prior to the relationship, and also learning an important lesson: trusting my instincts like I used to before he came around.

I have since landed two teaching gigs for dance: at one studio I am teaching a senior hip-hop class, ages 13 and onward, on Monday nights. It is in Chandler, which is a bit of a drive, however, I have taught the kids before and they are too wonderful to turn down, as is the studio owner, Tina. It really, truly is just like a family there, and I'm very proud to say I am now a permanent member. The other job I have is in a studio in Peoria, which is about a half hour away. I am teaching pre-dance, jazz, and hip-hop there as well, once the schedule fills up and classes have more than one student in them. It's normal for summer to be slow-parents worry more about their children beginning school again, which of course is, and should be, more important than dance. I know..funny that I say that now, when for years and years I would attempt to argue my way out of going to school just to stay home and dance all day. Ironic.

Aside from that, I have been spending time with my closest loved ones, and making brand new friends as well. I've begun a new life, and am happy to say that surrounding myself with the people and things that I love the most have helped me to not keel over. While there are still moments when I want to withdraw from the world, and drown in self-pity, I have instead turned myself around and..okay, I'll admit, will distract myself until the feelings pass and I have switched gears.

As for the rest of everything, that's about it. I should finally be around to updating more so, now that things have calmed back down. I hope everyone reading this is doing well also.

This is the most perfect story for a returning blog post.......

So guys, it has been a *long* few weeks. I've had to deal with alot of growing-not only my own, but my family's as well. My brother has graduated high school *YAY!!* and began his adult life. The relatives have gone home, and I've taken some reflection time on myself and am starting a journey of healing. Oh!! I've started a 365 project-you take one picture and upload it per day. Mine has to do with memories from each day..if interested you can find my link here: . You don't have to join to see my pictures. ;]

I posted this up as a note on my Facebook page but thought it would be beautiful here as well, for those of you that don't have Facebook but read through my blog. <3 So, here you are-my returning post, with a new promise to update as much as I can..things are changing, so it won't be every day, but I promise to try my best. <3

"So, I was going to put this in my sacred journal, the one I write my deepest thoughts in-but it is too beautiful to keep hidden away from the world, so here I am writing in this place instead.

I went to the library today while Chrix and Mikey were going to the mall. I forgot my library card at home, but figured I could convince the man working the desk to give me a "get out of jail free" card-no worries baby, he's gay and his boyfriend sits next to him at the same desk. Lol. I only took the two books off of the reservation shelf-because I'm a nerd like that. I walked to the desk, the man said he saw me check out books almost every other day (sadly, that is not a lie) and said it wasn't a problem, but next time not to forget my library card because he might not be working and I'd be..well, screwed. After checking out my books, I walked outside to head back to my car. There is usually at least one homeless man hanging outside of the library-not asking for change or bothering anyone, but just because they have nowhere else to go in this city. It's sad, really, and I hope one day I will be able to purchase and donate a room to those in need of a place to stay.

Anyways, as I was walking out to my car, I noticed that there weren't any around..strange, I thought, but I kept going to my car. I've made sure to bring along an extra water or two for anyone that looks thirsty, because well..this is Phoenix, AZ and the temperature can reach 122 in the middle of the summer. Homeless or not, and regardless of their background, they deserve the chance to survive.

There is a park that is just down the road from the library-maybe a five minute drive. It has statues in it of random people, and I've been there before. I'm working on a 365 project currently, where you take a picture a day, and inside of the park is a statue that completely fascinates me and warms my heart. I thought it would be a beautiful representation of a beautiful day, so I brought along my camera for a few quick pictures on the way back here.

I parked my car across the street and after safely crossing (always use the crosswalks folks) began my descent into the park. It was a beautiful day today-my temperature gauge in my car read 99 degrees Fahrenheit, but while walking around it definitely did not seem that hot. There is a circular path that takes you through the park, so I decided just to follow that path. Boy was I surprised at the end of it.......

I was walking around, snapping pictures here and there of beautiful things...check out the folder I'll be making in a few if you want to see them..I'll probably title it something that has to do with this story, because it is well deserving. Anyways, as I reached the end of the pathway, I noticed a homeless man sitting in the shade by the statue I had originally came to photograph. He wasn't directly in front of it, but as I stopped to take a picture, he smiled at me-so I smiled back. I always do, because smiles go a long way, whether you notice that or not. He waved me over, and luckily I had an unopened water bottle with me..I grabbed it as a "just in case" thing, since I hadn't used it at the library door like I usually do. As I approached him, he smiled again, and the first thing I noticed was the look in his eyes. You just know pain and suffering when you see it-I don't care how cold-hearted of a person you are, there is always the look that bothers you right down to your core when you know someone has had a rough past. I didn't sit down like he can never be too careful...but as I got closer and closer I began to have a feeling of peace, one that I haven't felt in awhile, especially around strange men. The first words out of his mouth were "please, don't call the cops on me for asking you to come over, I'm not a bad person and I'm not here to hurt you." I just smiled and said "Sir, I won't call the cops on you. I like meeting new people and their social status does not bother me." I handed him the water bottle, and told him it was unopened but that I didn't need it. He took it and drank about half of it in one gulp, lol, then looked back up at me. His next words, I will never forget:

"I don't know why I've stopped you, and I don't even know who you are. I live here in this park and I saw you walked and just received this sudden urge to speak with you. I'm not a psychic or anything, and I really don't want to freak you out-but I just need, really need, to tell you that you are going to be okay, that everything is going to be okay. You have a man that loves you deeply, inside of his heart, and he is going to be the strength you need-so let him do that for you. Don't be stubborn. I just need to tell you that you're beautiful inside and out....please don't call the police on me, because I don't mean it in a harassing way, I just felt the need to tell you. I won't bother you any more..thank you for the water and I hope to see you around sometime, with your love, and children."

It was then that I shook his hand and thanked him. He asked my name, and I told him, and I asked his in return, and he told me too. I told him that his words meant more to me than he will ever understand. He said "God bless you", and I said "Thank you, I wish the same for you as well." It was then that I explained I was in a hurry to come home, and told him that I hoped to see him around again-and then that I hoped I never saw him again, because he deserved a wonderful place to live, with wonderful things. I think we both had a moment where we were teary-eyed and I took that moment to bow away.

You see, sometimes, you ask for a sign. Many times, you miss that sign. The times you need that sign the most, are the times when it is a direct smack to the face. I'm not Christian, in fact I believe in Gods for everything, and I'm not trying to say he was an angel, or Godsent, or anything like that. However....I did a lot of asking and realizing today, with Chrix's help, on many many things. I realized it is time to let go-that I can no longer let my past rule my life. I realized there is a journey of growth that I need to step foot on, and that while it will be painful, I am not alone-that my soulmate is beside me, and together we will beat down my past and overcome it. I realized that I have been weak-no longer will I allow the small things to bother me, nor will I allow fear to hold me back.

Today, I shook my signs hand. His name was Joe, and he lives in the park near the library. I have never met or seen him before...and I have the most wonderful feeling that I will never see him again."

Dear world...or at least those that are following me.......

I'm still alive!! I promise. Sorry for the lack of updates and the broken promise...things have been crazy this month. Tomorrow is my little brother's high school graduation and we have family in town. Before they got here, things were still crazy behind-the-scenes. I promise to come back and update regularly as soooooooooooon as all of the insanity is over, lol.

Monday, May 3, 2010


Well, there isn't too much to write about tonight I suppose. My apologies to all!!!!!!! I had some other, more important (sorry blog but it's true!!) things to attend to.

That being said, I'll leave you with my very first book review (yay!) to make up for the lack of topics to discuss with you.

Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Now-let me begin this by stating a fact: Joe Hill is the son of Stephen King. Another fact: he is also an author. One more for the road: this book is DEFINITELY worth a read (or more!!). I found a copy at my local library, and I'm sure you can do the same as well at yours..but it is definitely worth the purchase if you choose to buy it.

The book begins by introducing the main characters, as all novels do. The MAIN main character (haha) is an ex-metal rock star, dating a goth girl many years younger than him. His obsession lies with his collection of odd items: one is a videotape of a murder, some skulls, the gothic list goes on and on. His personal assistant and he decide to purchase a dead man's suit, and come to find out, the purchase was rigged. He is now haunted by this dead man (I cannot tell you who the man is, or it will give some things away) and must find a way to rid himself of the ghost before he is killed, along with his girlfriend and other loved ones. I found this book to be entertaining-a great read for a rainy day, or any other day, where you need some alone-with-a-book time. While the book may sound like a gothic/metalhead novel, it is about the paranormal-and the goth world is not involved, other than the girlfriend being gothic herself. On a scale of one to five, I would rate this book a four and a half-leaving half off, because it prevented me from accomplishing the daily tasks I wanted to accomplish that day. Haha!!

This book was recommended to me by a friend, and I honestly was skeptical about reading it..but it turned out to be totally worth the time I spent on it. I now recommend this book to you. If you take the time to read it, I hope you enjoy it!! It will not be a waste of your time.

Ahh the insanity of a couple of days.......

Wow. My apologies guys, for not blogging until now, but things have been a bit crazy around here. As some of you know, Chrix went to the ER the other night-he had been vomiting for 16 hours, without relent, and so his brother took him. I didn't get word until the next night-they kept him on IV fluids and prescribed Zofran. Ahhh..the miracle drug Zofran, that magically stops nausea and vomiting. Why don't they sell that over the counter yet?! Haha. He's okay, and had no other symptoms-just exhausted, as anyone would be that was sick. Thank you again to those of you who kept me company and let me worry on your shoulder-it means alot to me that you all are there.

Good news-I've got three movies for ya'll to check out!! I suppose we'll jump into those, shall we?

Human Centipede

Yes. I saw the "controversial" film last night-and thought it was brilliant. The film begins by introducing two girls, somewhere in their twenties I would assume, that are away on a "road trip" through Europe. They want to visit a club, but along the way, get lost, and their tire blows out. I know, I know.......typical set-up. They get out of the car and walk to a house to ask to call for help. A man answers the door, that lives alone. Turns out he is a "mad surgeon" (think of a mad scientist, but..surgical. Lol.) and is attempting to create a "triplet Siamese twin" set by connecting the intestinal tracts of three people. He chooses these girls, and a man, and the events then unfold after the man kidnaps an Asian tourist and has his three "subjects."

Many people already have preconceived notions about this film, and I will admit, I did too. I mean-it isn't very hard to, when you hear the synopsis for the film. Coming from the IFC network, you already know this is an independent film..and those who know me well, know that I cannot resist independent films. I was expecting gore, violence, and well..with the connection of intestinal tracts, a great deal of "gross out" moments. I am proud to say that this film does not have many of those, if any at all. I think the most disgusting part is when one of the girls frees herself, and upon doing so, an IV is ripped out of her arm...and that was not even gory-I definitely would have closed my eyes for that had I seen it coming, but after, thought "REALLY?! That's it?" Haha. While this definitely isn't for children (there is a bit of vulgar language, not to mention the subject matter), I'd recommend everyone sees this at least once that is into horror films, or thrillers, or anything along those lines.

The Lovely Bones

I also watching this one last night. I had read the book a few weeks ago, so while I knew what was happening, I was pleasantly surprised. The filmmakers made changes to the story-well, left some of it out-as always, and while I wish they had left certain parts in, I wasn't disappointed with how things turned out. The cinematography alone is a great reason to see this film-the scenery of the "In-Between," as it is called in the story, is breathtaking. The story is of a 14 year old girl that is murdered, and watches her family while she is in the "In-Between." Her family must learn to cope with her disappearance and death on their own terms, and while this is a film about an attempt to find her killer and to gain justice, it is also about the power of healing after experiencing the traumatic death of a family member and friend. I wish I could go into more detail as to the storyline, however, if you have neither read the book nor seen the film, it will ruin the story. Overall, I'd give this movie a watch, as there is no gore, hardly any violence, and has a beautiful message to send if you are a deep-thinker. I do recommend reading the book beforehand though, just so that you can see the differences and don't get too confused. The book goes into more details of course. ;]


This film came out in 2008, and is a bit old, but if you haven't seen it yet, I would put this at the top of your queues, or whatever you may use to keep a working title list of films. This one is about a virus going around that makes people go blind, and shows the effects of it on these people. That's not all-they are quarantined to an area where only those blind people are allowed by the government, and are constantly under watch and treated..well, like anyone secluded in a guarded area by the government would be. Some family members join their loved ones in this area-I believe by pretending they are blind, but you'll have to excuse me if I'm wrong about that, because it's been awhile since I've seen this film haha. It shows how people bond together to survive-not only while inside of this area, but after they are released from it as well. It also shows how people separate themselves in order to survive, when the government stops caring about its people and begins treating them like animals. One warning: there is a scene in this film that is disturbing, and involves..well, the women basically have to "earn" food rations from a group that begins to turn violent, and I'll leave it at that....pretty self-explanatory I hope. While the scene only happens one time (you'll know why after) I feel the need to warn you, because not everyone can handle that sort of thing...I know I walked away from the film myself during that part, because I myself cannot handle violence against women.

I found this film to be disturbing, but beautiful-and only disturbing, because the thought of going blind is in itself disturbing. This is a great film for anyone interested in society, viruses, treatment of people by the government, and many many other genres too. I honestly feel this is a film everyone should see at least once, if not more times, because every time you see it, you figure something new out, whether it involves your feelings and emotions through the film and on the subject matter, or figuring things out within the film itself.

So there you are folks-three films, highly recommended, by yours truly. If anyone has the chance to see these films, or has already seen any of them, I'd love to hear your thoughts-whether that happens on here in the comments, or on my Facebook page, or anywhere else for that matter haha.

I will leave you all with that for the night-the Red Wings lost tonight, Chrix just fell asleep, and I am on my way to join him in dreamland. I hope all of you are doing well!!

Living up to the randomness promise.......

So, today I come to write to you all with a bit on my mind-so I apologize if this is a bit long.

To begin, I shall get this off my chest. I keep hearing all day and night long, nonstop, about how "illegals aren't bad people" and how "illegals don't bring crime here" and all this nonsense. Sure-many illegals crossing into the country probably ARE just trying to start a new life. HOWEVER. We are worried about the ones coming in here and bringing their crime.

Today, we had a Pinal County deputy officer (with the Sheriff's office) pull over a car that had illegals in it. Upon approaching the vehicle, the illegals pulled out an AK-47 assault rifle and shot the officer in the stomach. They then fled. SWAT teams had to storm the area, because of them running, and as far as I'm aware, they are STILL attempting to find the illegals. I ask every single one of you that opposes the new immigration bill (which isn't new at all-remember? Federal law, since the Industrial Revolution) how they are going to stand up and say "illegals don't come here and commit crimes." Here are the links to all of the news stories about the officer and what happened:

Al Sharpton is coming here to hold some protest against the new law. Joy. Hope that works out for him. *insert eye rolling here* Dear Al Sharpton, if you ever somehow come across this blog, I'd just like to tell you that one, not all white people are racist, and two, I find it very offensive that if a white person DID get discriminated against (which we constantly do-think about it) you wouldn't stand up for us based on the color of our skin. You are not the martyr you think you are, sir. I respect you for standing up for something you truly believe in-but I disrespect you for not finding the will to reevaluate what you say all the time.

On to other things. I've been watching an episode of Wife Swap-must be brand new. I didn't know they still created this show lol. They took a "goth" family (and I use that term lightly, because they are more contemporary goth than most goths really are-could just be for the tv show though), where the boys do ballet (because of the parents), and mixed them with a "regular" family, that forces hockey on the entire family and neglects the daughter-who is the only girl, and dances. I really hate the hockey parents. They sit there and tell the sons they are losers, and suck, and all of this other horrible stuff. It's not only at hockey practice either-they have "_____ sucks as a ______" song at home that they sing to each other, and they are always putting each other down. In the end of the episode, both sides were of course more accepting and lenient with each other, but...meh. Once you make yourself into a cold-hearted person on television, it's hard to convince people otherwise. Haha. The goth side, well....I felt bad for them, because the other couple was extremely mean to each of them, just because of the way they dressed. Moral of the story: Goths are not bad people. We deserve just as much love, acceptance and respect for being us as "regular" people do. Oh-and coming from a family where two of three kids are jocks, and I was the only dancer....I felt greatly for the neglect shown to the daughter when it came to her dancing. I'll simply leave it at that, because I don't want this blog to turn into a big melting pot of negativity, haha.

On to the last for the evening.......good news came about today. My dad stepped down from being a K-9 officer, due to a great deal of harassment from uppers at work. We were told today they are going to retire the dog, and we get to keep him. YAY!!!!!!! The worst thing in the world for my dad would be to give up Bodhi-and that would have been hard on us too.

I know I mentioned I might give a movie review tonight-but, those were on my mind more so than any films were. I didn't sit down to watch any today-maybe tomorrow though. If you are hoping for a title to check out, I always recommend Zombieland. Hehe.

Don't have much to say for once.......

Ahhh, so the time comes to keep my word and formulate a post on here for all the world to see. What to talk about tonight.......

I keep reading about all of these cold cases of children that went missing 20, 30, 40 years ago. How horrid it must be for those families-to have your child, or brother, or sister, etc., just disappear off the face of the earth. It makes me want to start hiking all over the world, and look for them-just to bring peace of mind to their families. I can't imagine going that long, without even the smallest clue as to what happened to the child, or where to look, or anything. It makes me thank the gods that my nephew, and niece, and dance students are all at home, and safe. What has this world come to...seriously?

No new films to report tonight. I haven't watched any since "Pot Zombies." Lol. Maybe tomorrow night will be a film review.

I've been on an aggrotech trip today. This music always seems to enter my soul and move me in ways that most music doesn't. If you haven't ever heard of aggrotech, check the list at the top of this page for a few band ideas. Psyclon Nine, Dawn of Ashes, Hocico, and Grendel are all aggrotech bands...there are plenty more out there. You can run a google search for "aggrotech" and find hundreds of bands. With any genre out there, not all of it is good, but 98% of it me at least. Then again, I'm different from the norm, so not everyone will agree with my tastes, lol.

My apologies to all-there really isn't much on my mind tonight, except missing my fiance. On that note, I shall keep it short for tonight, with the promise of a better post tomorrow.

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Sorry this one's a bit later than yesterday's posts were.......

So, I've come up with the thought that I should post these towards the evening and/or at night, mostly so that if you decide to be a die-hard fan ;] you won't have to check this blog 876257863874658746 times a day waiting for a new post. Lol!! Right now the time on my clock is 7:28 pm, and this shall be the time I make new posts.'s really the time I will ATTEMPT to make all of my new posts..give or take an hour. That way, you know if you read a new post in the morning, there won't be a new one until about this time of day.

Newest vow of the evening: I will do my absolute best at answering every comment that any of you leave for me. Once my dance students (er..the older ones of course, since this might not always be censored haha), fellow dance teachers, friends, loved ones, and..well, hopefully some randoms that just like what I have to say, start coming on here it might be harder to respond-but I promise to do my absolute best to try and answer all of them. I'm not expecting fame out of this of course, so hopefully this entire paragraph doesn't sound that way, but I do know and love a great big group of people, so I don't want anyone feeling neglected. <3

I changed the font on here today. If any of you guys are still having problems, with the font type, or the colors, or anything at all, please let me know and I will fix them as soon as I get your comment.

On to the news of the day: Due to the immigration bill that got signed here in Arizona..which WAS A FEDERAL LAW ALREADY, mind you, people are attempting to get people to boycott random things. Example: the government of AZ. REALLY?! How exactly does one go about boycotting a government? Are you going to say no to their stimulus packages for the day? Didn't think so. Will you turn down their funding for the day for your schools, city governments, construction, etc.? Didn't think so either. Please, someone explain to me exactly how you are going to boycott the state government. I'm curious how that's going to work out for you.

They're also talking about boycotting the company that makes Arizona Iced Tea. REALLY?! Newsflash: that company is not even from Arizona. Congratulations, you just made yourself look stupid. It's called research: try it. ;]

Oh-and one more thing before I step down from the rant session about the new bill WHICH WAS ALREADY A FEDERAL LAW. People are smearing refried beans on the Capitol's windows, and then drawing swastikas in them. Not only is that disgusting...VERY disgusting...and a waste of yummy food, but that is a bit over-the-top don't you think? I am by no means racist, but when you act like an imbecile be expected to be treated like one. The second I see anyone doing that, you better believe I'm saying something about your ignorance.

If you don't like the bill...go to another country. If you don't like that you might actually have to get your immigration papers...leave and go back to where you came from. If you think every police officer in this state has time to pull over every person...because this bill applies to ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and not just Mexicans...then you are seriously the type that thinks the entire world revolves around you, and you need to stop being so ignorant. Police officers do not have the time to ask every single person they see their immigration status. If they did, they would have been asking that of everyone for years-since this has been a federal law (which supersedes state law!!) for years and years.

Enough of my political ramblings. That isn't why I created this blog in the first place, haha. There isn't too much else going on in my little slice of the world right now. I'm reading a book for the book club that myself and a few friends are involved in: Hostage to the Devil by Malachi Martin. It's pretty interesting so far. I think I'm a bit over-conditioned though. Many of them are saying it has scared them, whether they were edgy while reading the book or at another time when it came to their mind. As for me, it hasn't bothered me yet.

Chrix, my fiance, mentioned to me tonight that we should move to another country. I told him I'm willing to do that-we can always come back and visit friends and family here. He mentioned England, and Tuscany, and a few other places. I told him wherever he would want to move to, I'd be up for it. It's not that I hate America, it's just that I've been here my entire life-I've never even been to Canada or Mexico. There is so much of the world to see, and experience, and while we will be able to travel to many places, you can't fully experience life somewhere until you throw yourself in the middle of it. Besides, I can speak Spanish, and Portuguese, and if we moved to Italy, Italian would not be hard for me to learn at all. England, well let's be honest-you still have to learn a new language, because their slang is different over there. Haha!!

Watched a "film" tonight with Chrix entitled "Pot Zombies." Don't watch it. Seriously..don't watch it. While the thought of marijuana and zombies might seem fun....this film was HORRID. I don't know what the heck was thinking when they uploaded it. The film was supposed to be about weed laced with radioactive ingredients, and when you smoked it, it turned you into a zombie. Let me tell you what: first of all, the movie was very offensive in the means of how the women were spoken to and about. Secondly, the music was horrible. You cannot allow your movie to go from a punk rock soundtrack, to death metal, to country music. Sorry-not going to work. And lastly, I will end this by saying..if you are sitting down to see a B-movie (I know, I should've known, but some are pretty decent) and you see "Directed by Justin Powers" come on...just save yourself the time and effort.

Now I know some of you will go watch that "film" anyway. Don't say I didn't warn you. Haha!!

Hmm. Don't have much else to blog about, so I'll end it here for now. Did I mention that if you want my views on a topic, I'm willing to write here so you can see them? Just let me know what it is you're looking for. =]

A little bit of a side note.......

So, as you may have noticed, I added a list at the top of the page that has things I'd recommend to you. In all honesty, it is a mess of randomness to attempt to help cure your boredom haha. Any of the short films you see posted can be found on youtube, and I promise to note otherwise if they are not. The books can also be found at your local libraries, or bookstores, or wherever you decide to purchase books from, of course. Anything that is not a book or film, just might need to do a bit of research to find out more (or just let me know you're curious and I will forward my own links to you haha.) Enjoy!! ;]

And so begins an epic blog of randomness.......

I've been contemplating beginning a blog for awhile, at last, with some encouragement from people I value dearly, here it is. Don't expect this to be a strictly one-subject blog...I'm far from being a one-subject thinker. ;] What will, in fact, show up on here? Well...anything is game.

I suppose it would be best to formally introduce myself, but I think the "about me" over there on the side has done that well enough, hasn't it? Probably not, because it's a bit random lol. I'm 22 years old, currently awaiting the magical Financial Aid Fairy to come and drop off some grants and scholarships so I can head back to school for biochemistry. I'm an avid reader, an avid researcher, and an avid life student. Lately I've been a walking encyclopedia apparently, so things here...well, they just might get interesting haha.

Enough about I tell everyone, if you stumble upon me whether it is here, on Facebook, on the paranormal boards that the Paranormal Research Society runs, or anywhere else-the best way to get to know me is to spend some time with me, or to just ask away. That is always the best way to get to know a person I suppose. Since there isn't a way to message me on here that I am aware of, I'll leave you with my Facebook link:!/profile.php?id=100000902853574&ref=ts , and a promise to keep this blog updated as much as possible.
