Wishing for the World.

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile,  I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”

Book Quote of the Day.

I feel like this quote was written for me.  Since moving to Michigan in January, it is the epitome of my life right now. Moving here was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. For once in my life, I was finally able to solely focus on myself — and I now am happier than I ever have been.  Now with only a short time left here as I wait for the phone call to tell me where I’m moving, I find myself so happy with who I’ve become in Michigan.  I’m someone I always hoped I could be, but never thought I would be.  Life truly does surprise you right when you’ve given up.

“I exist more now than I did four months ago. And I will leave with the hope that the expansion of one person — the magnification of one life, is indeed an act of worth in this world. Even if that life, just this one time, happens to be nobody’s but my own.”

-Eat, Pray, Love

Happy 2010!

Well, what can I say.   A LOT has changed since I last posted.  I now live in Novi, Michigan and begin my new career on Monday working for Hormel Foods in Detroit.  Yes my friends, this means that I’ve graduated college, moved to another state, changed time zones, and have to begin a full time job on Monday.  Talk about a lot changing huh? But yes, I did get the job and I couldn’t be more excited. 2010 will definitely be a new, different, and great one!

This week my mom drove out with me to get me settled here.  I could haven’t made this move without her helping me this week, my sister helping me with everything this week and calming me down from stressing, and my dad for helping with all of the moving and budget truck problems, and who could forget my brother who continued to remind me of the one thing that I don’t want to hear about. Ha.  I couldn’t have done it without any of them.

My internet is now set up at my new apartment and I’m so happy.  Now I can update everyone on my life.  I will post pics of my new apartment this weekend.  I hope everyone is ready for a wonderful new year!

It’s true, friends pick you up when you’re down. Trina did that for me today. She sent me a text because she knew I was feeling down and exhausted from the waiting game of hearing about a possible job. Thank you to all of my friends and family for your ongoing support. I am who I am because of all of you.

Adam Lambert on Ellen

Yes friends, he made a bad decision at the awards show, but there is no denying his talent.  This is his performance on the Ellen Show from last week.  This is the guy I fell in love with on American Idol.  His talent is beyond words, and this song is priceless.  I will forever stand by that.

George Carlin. You are brilliant.

How awesome is this quote from the famous George Carlin. I couldn’t have said it better.  I’m sure it’ll make you think and giggle. Enjoy!

“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating……and you finish off as an orgasm.”

Oh life…

I have to admit… this is definitely how I have felt for most of my life. However, I should get used to it. The work life just begins…

John Mayer | Perfectly Lonely

I’m in love with John Mayer’s new album Battle Studies.  This song is my favorite one on the album, Perfectly Lonely.  To me, it describes my life to perfection at the moment. Yes, I’m single. But I’m single and happy.  I’m pursuing my career, without haven’t to report to anyone.  Love will find me one day, and it will be a magical day, but as for now, I’m perfectly okay with finding myself first.  Enjoy.

Had a little love, but I spread it thin
Falling in her arms and out again
Made a bed made for my game round town
Tore out my heart, and shut it down.

Nothing to do, nowhere to be.
I sip a little kind of free
Nothing to do, no one but me
That’s all I need

I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely, yeah
‘Cause I don’t belong to anyone
nobody belongs to me.

I see my friends around from time to time
When their ladies let them slip away
And when they ask how I’m doing with mine
This is always what I say

Nothing to do, nowehre to be
I sip a little kind of free
Nothing to do, no one to be
Isn’t it hard to see

Why I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely, yeah
‘Cause I don’t belong to anyone, nobody belongs to me

And this is not to say there never comes a day
I’ll take my chances and start again
And when I look behind on all my younger times
I’ll have to fake her arms that led me to a love so strong

I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely
I’m perfectly lonely
‘Cause I don’t belong to anyone
Nobody belongs to me

It’s the way, it’s the way, it’s the way that I want it

PostSecret Time

Seriously I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this one and questioned whether I had done this and sent it in.  It completely looks like something I did.  It is a picture from the Top of the Rock in New York City with a Swan that says ‘Never Give up’.  Honestly, one of my favorite places in the world with one of my favorite quotes.  Never, never, never give up.  Wow, can’t believe this was one of them.  Enjoy!
