Hope is everlasting.

I think we can all agree on one thing,
no matter the situation, no matter the style, no matter what you're into, 
music is always there for you.
Its like a security blanket, prayer first and foremost, 
but secondly music is my therapy. Throughout my blog you can note that I
absolutely love music as I'm always posting different song picks. I think I tend to bore people
I meet when I strike a conversation focused on music. I can go on for hours. 
Its the simple things in life that make it what it is. 
And music makes my life a positive journey.

Easter Sunday has been amazing, I went to church and the service was a
breakthrough experience. I feel that as human beings we always go off track in life
and things get tough and we get lost, we start to place importance in things that really arent
good for us. We do things that we shouldnt because they feel right at the moment. 
Today was a great reminder for myself to start getting back on track again.
 In the end we make our choices, we pick our battles. We learn. We move on.
And in the end,
" Hope is on its way".

Countdown to Japan:  2 MORE DAYS!!!!!

Did She REALLY Just Say That?!


I went to Project Ethos and I must say it was super fun!
Lets sumarize the night:
Woke for class, was done around 12, got home, went to work @ 2, got off at 6, 
rushed to get ready (and I mean RUSHED to get ready) out the door by 8
 (hahahaha!! despite our efforts we were late.)
Got to the show and it was insaaaaaaaaaaaaaaane. Gorgeous people eeeeverywhere,
I cant even count how many model-looking guys were there.
All I could think was "HAW-t's all up in the club tonight."
( I really JUST said that. I can go back and delete it, but nehhhhh. Its pretty funny)
No but really, my mind doesnt think like that, I do however say funny things that would never match my personality. THAT being one of em. hahahah!
Anywho, It was such a great experience, I am just so thrilled with  my life right now because
Ive managed to cross off many things from my bucket list and its only March of this year, 
not even half ways done with 2013 and things are going so great!!!
(watch me write tomorrow about how lousy and depressing my life is. hahaha that would be IRONIC!!)

So listen, I got a new camera for my spring break trip and I also got a new MAC laptop!!!
(can anyone say SKYPE-ING capabilities?!?! )
courtesy of my sisters friend Jordan, THANKS JORDAN if you're reading, I'll totally 
"hook you up" with presents from Tokyo!! Im excitttttteeeeed!!!!!
My only fear is eating foreign foods like octupus or whale, and getting like, the squirts 
(if you know what i mean.)
 and not being able to enjoy my stay in Tokyo. 
(I know right? this blog should be rated R for ... language of .....graphic nature)
not sure if that made sense, BUT IT SOUNDS good!
Coming to a theater near you, WORLD WAR Z!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so stoked.

 Ha jee meh ma shee tay, Wa ta she no na ma eh wa Rachel!!!!!!!

Kenya Beauties....

I've been highly captivated by the natural beauty which ooooooozes from these
gorgeous women. I believe myself to be a strong woman, an independant individual,
(although I struggle much of my life, with various things, As we all do, totally normal.)
and I find beauty in these particular ladies because their idea of attractive is nothing like the things we've
been trained and told to believe. Many of these Samburu tribes practice rituals where they intentioanlly scar their bodies as a sign of power. They see scars and imperfections as trophies of things they've endured, power they've achieved, or beauty they've acquired. They embrace our "ugly" so to say.
These women many times do not have long hair, its either dreaded or shaved off.
Let me tell you, im gonna jump on that bandwagon here pretty soon.
I think im at a point in my life where im slowly transitioning to doing what I've always truly wanted to,
many times we have inhibitors in the form of people or "obstacles" that hold us back from the things we've
been aching to do, and I feel this year im truly finding myself and challenging my mentality.
Im making so many changes that I probably wouldnt of be able to last year or the years before.
 I'm beginning to see light in things ,
Might sound like im rambling but I feel like Wendy from Peter Pan,
As if I walk the plank of life and think I know the outcome
but  surprised to find that the outcome was nothing like I had expected.
This is a great thing by the way haha!

Outfit posts soon to come, Fashion show almost here and I'm preppin!
Um did I MENTION I went tanning for the first time eeeeever just last week!>!!>
I almost instagrammed it but tried to keep myself focused on how to start up the tanning bed hahahah!! it was FUUUUUUUUUUUN!! im addicted now, im gonna look like a crispy piece of KFC chicken soon.
IM JOKING im not hooked on tanning people, just doin it so i wont look like
chocolate vanilla ice cream as I wear my tube top dress to the show. (boy my legs were light)
My life is full of unexpected, crazy, curve-ball surprises.
But im a great swinger to keep em coming!
OOOOOOOOOOOH. no . no that did NOT sound right.
surely you know what I mean jeeezzzz.

and lets end this post with some of my favorite lyrics of all time,
"look at what they've done to my brain, they've picked it like a chicken bone,
and now im half insane, look at what they've done to my brain"

Imagine America, where we see scars are a mark of beauty. That'll be the day.
