15 Things I Don't Remember...

1) How to send a fax...really guys, who sends them anyway, and even when you do send one, who gets it? who stands by a noisy beeping machine waiting for your message to print when you could've PDF'd it ...when's the last time your boss said..."hey send that Facsimile to the client."

2) Running...let's be realistic...who "really" runs anyway...or uses air quotes "correctly."

3) How to survive full court game of basketball...seriously that shit is impossible. I may be 25 but COME ON...cherry picking all the way.

4) Feeling like I was going die if I didn't hear that ONE SONG...I may be 12 (x2) now but never again will I have to legit tape a song off the radio just to hear it when I want...I just youtube, spotify, itunes that shit and its mine....alllllll mine.

5) Wearing curlers to bed....why did I go through all that annoying and uncomfortable trouble just to have ugly curly hair...my hair never looked like the gals in the curler package.

6) Not having the internet...remember when you had to look in an encyclopedia or go to a library.....EW! Or watch the movie to find out who was in it, I mean how would we know anything without google...SCARY, Maybe it's more like i wish I didn't know everything about everyone all the time...le sigh...God forbid you wouldn't want to be stuck with only the "V" Encyclopedia...

7) Home phones...Honestly who has a home phone anymore? WHY? its so big? How come I can't post to Facebook from there?

8) When Cops was the only Reality TV show... WHAT ARE THE BAD GUYS GONNA DO THIS TIME...who cares when you can watch middle aged women whine and WINE...oh puns.

9) Travel agents... do they still exist?...and if they do why would you go to one when you can get a sweet deal on Groupon...CABO here we come!

10) Being excited for 3pm. 3pm may mean that school is out...BUT I AM STILL WORKING...3pm is nothing special and it only reminds me that I have 3 more hours of WORK. BOOO HIIISSSS

11) Non-alcoholic drinks... enough said.

12) Summer Camp Crushes...I hope he'll sit next to me at lunchtime...I hope he doesn't notice my sunburn...swoon...we you know we got a flirty poke and not a virtual one...oh the days of innocent swoon-age...innocence? what's that?

13) Time Outs...Man I got so many of those in Kindergarten it seemed like was the Mayor of Time Out Chair....Now Either I'm just never bad anymore or they don't give them out at jobs...lucky though because I if I didn't know any better I know a couple of people who could use a TIME OUT right now.

14) Paper Maps...Can you read a map?  I used to be able to...in like 5th grade when we learned about maps...now it's like scales, keys, colors, tributaries, WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING...just tell me how to get from A-to B and Siri just tells me... :D

15) Feeling like I have it all together....Let's face it. life is nuts and we never ever really have a firm handle it on all...so I guess i'll surrender to the madness and just have some fun.

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…
