The Importance of Family

Hello peoples!!

I just wanted to touch on the idea of how important family is and should be.

Not everyone is blessed at growing up in a two-parent household, or knowing their parents or having siblings.  But one thing that keeps us all together, grounded is family.  Despite the feuds and fights and quarrels, you should never ocstracize yourself or your loved ones from participating as a family.  It should not be taken for granted.  And even though people disagree and don't fit in, they are there for you.  Parent's aren't perfect, you are not perfect.  So why in all of our expectations of each other to we tend to take sides and begin to fall apart?  Furnish relationships with forgiveness and love and remember, no one can care more about themselves than them.  You can only give so much and be so much for your loved ones.  But the point is to show up, to offer, to be there when no one else will.  Family is family.  And you usualy only get one.

There are quite the many lone wolves out there who disagree with family politics or traditions so they run away and create their own.  I cannot really judge anyone for what they feel they need.  But BLOOD is BLOOD and it's a strong bond I love to nourish!!  Althought my family has seen and survived such a curt separation I have survived and loved both sides and then some.  I just wanted to accentuate this before the holidays to let your judgements go out the window, your grudges...at the door and love unconditionally who you have to call your own, your family. 

When someone falls, help them up.  What good are you if you are watching someone fall to pieces.  This is what we are here for.  "Brothers and sisters, love one another and I have loved you" (Somewhere in the bible).  Please, everyone..whatever your holding onto, let it go. Let love.  And be the you that you haven't become yet! 

Family is what keeps my soul enriched, my heart warmed and my love endured! Thank you to my family, who is always my number one fan and my strength!

Love always, Alexandria

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…
