Dear Friend,

Dear Friend,

I hope we are still friends.  Every time I see you we usually fall back into our usual routine.  You've always been my support and I've always been the kid just wanting to have fun.  But see we are older now and live in different cities.  You have a penis and I have a vagina.  Our worlds don't mesh as easily as they once did when our childhood hearts were always close.  I start to wonder how well I know you and how I am afraid I don't know you well at all.  I always was the one talking and you always listened, drove me around and met me wherever to hang out.  I always felt we had our unique thing with underlying flirtation yet you feel like family.  Always curious about what was going on your head and never knowing much about your emotions, I just knew we'd always be us and I was afraid that if that ever changed our friendship be changed for good.  You could've kissed me in high school and we'd know how it feel by now.  But you didn't and still we don't know.  So right now we don't text or call or message really.  I think you're dating someone but I'm too scared to ask.  I think about you all the time and wonder if you're happy or okay and it makes me remember how we used to need each other.  I know I may have hurt your feelings in the past or made selfish choices but I never thought I could lose you.  You never ask for anything. If you want something you have to ask.  If you wanted to ask me out why didn't you?  There always been "what if" and neither of us wants to take the jump.  While that is safer, we don't talk and I feel like I don't know you anymore.  It's interesting how you can not communicate with a person for a long time but they still are present to you.  I think about our friendship and I think I miss that and I wonder if you miss me too.  I wonder if I matter anymore and if you're upset that we don't talk.  I wonder a lot of things and if I text I doubt you'd text back.  Can guys and girls really be friends?  After 20 years I think we can.  I love you in a way I don't understand because you're one of my oldest friends.  You've seen me grow and change and always believed in me.  Please don't be gone.  Know that I'll always view you as one of the best and I will always pray that you find happiness. I can only hope that one day we'll be more in each other's lives and reflecting on how lasting friendship is hard to find and being a part of each others History has made us who we are in the present.

hugs,
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…
