you-me= still me

I thought and you thought
we had a Cinderella story
from the first time you kissed me
I heard the angels singing
and now its hurting to see your back
your leaving
My heart was full
but now its broken and bleeding

O' Where did we go wrong
What could I have said and done
to make you stay
and love me the way
you did.
you did love me.
you did

It's hurts to let go and it hurts to hold on
where are you now? What's goin' on?
I still love you,
but you're gone.
gone.

Was I the one making up dreams
planning the future, sewing the seams
what was breaking I wanted to mend
or I would lose my very best friend

I pushed and I pulled to make the pieces fit
circles into squares bit after bit
losing myself to help save all of it
I'm gone. you're gone. it's done.

Still I wish somehow
it was different
you loved me now
but even if I'm not your One
I still know it
what's done is done
but our bond will be forever there
underneath and everywhere.
and in my heart, there is a space
for the love, left in your place

no more dinners, no more lace
no more kisses at my place
no more Tv shows on the couch
no more silly songs to sing out
no more blankets to be shared
no more, no more, nothing's there.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
