Who AM I?

Who am I?

When I forget myself, I come back to whom and what I love the most.
When I lose sight of my passions, I look within myself
When I see my flaws, I reach to improve and grow
And when I sing, I let it all show...

I don't have a favorite color because I can't pick between that Tiffany Blue, Purple and Pink.
I like my coffee typically with 2 Splendas unless it's really good coffee then I'll take it black.
I sleep best when I have a soft blanket near my face
Every time I see open space I have an intense urge to cartwheel, also why I wear shorts under dresses so I can do so on a whim.
I feel the most joy, the most myself, the most alive when I'm on a stage, center of attention.
My wardrobe is a testament to my bargain and sale shopping addiction, but I do get complimented often on my unique and eclectic style.  
I have a pig collection of sorts, wooden, ceramic, plush...even a cutting board.
For some reason I can't keep plants alive.
My Guitar is a Taylor Acoustic and I love every dent and scratch on it from the last seven years as well as its amazing wooden smell, its intoxicating.
I've spoken on the phone with Snoop Dog, Steve Martin, Whoopi Goldberg and many other celebrities.
I LOVE me some red wine with a good dinner and a Bloody Mary with breakfast.
One day I want a house with a big yard and maybe have some chickens or horses.
I have a new fondness for SUSHI, nom nom fishies
I'm loyal to a fault and love any excuse to love and show it!

Happy Friday blogosphere!

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…
