My healthy Addiction

I think I am addicted to music. I can never get enough of it. I get grouchy without it. I fiend for it. I start going through withdrawl symptoms. I get depressed without it. I have no energy without it. It is a high for me to listen to music. I have gone from 8 hours a day to 20 hours a day of listening to music. I wonder if there is an actual addiction to music. I mean I can stay awake forever if I am listening to music. Without it I tend to start getting sleepy 4 hours after I get out of bed.… Continue

Family Frustrations

Sometimes family can be such a pain in the a**. Don't get me wrong I love my family but they always ask questions that I have no real answer for. I am so tired of answer questions like when are you going to start dating again? and when are you going to have children? Okay to start with I am not even sure I want to have kids. I love kids don't get me wrong but they cost so much to raise and they are always getting into stuff. If I want something that gets into stuff I would get a puppy or… Continue

Looking for Opportunity to shine

Growing up I was always told that there would be so many opportunities for me when I became an adult. I have yet to see many of these opportunities. The only opportunities I have experienced have been opportunities that would have had negative consequences. So of course I avoided these opportunities.

My question is where are these opportunities? I just would like one opportunity really. An opportunity to work in the industry that I respect the most. This industry that I respect is… Continue

True Love

To me true love is finding someone who gets you when no one else does. True love is never having to fear being yourself. True love is finding someone who can love you even if you look different than the rest of the people around them. True love is when a person completes another in everyway. They accept you for you and don't try to change you. They encourage you in all that you do. They accept you without makeup, with bed hair, and morning breath. True love is when you wake up and all both of… Continue

Why does life suck so bad? I mean I am a good person. I am nice to everybody. I try to be optimistic. I make one wrong decision after another. I guess it is all my fault. I let to many people dictate my life I guess. Or I consider everyone else before myself. I just want to be happy. But I don't know how anymore. To much has happened in the past year for me to be happy. And the crap keeps piling up. I just sit and cry anymore. I don't know what else to do. I have sent resumes, filled out… Continue

Safe Sex

Misconceptions and Phobias about AIDS and HIV

Many people have misconceptions and phobias when it comes to the subject of AIDS and HIV. No you can not get it by hugging someone with AIDS. No you can't get it by being friends with someone who has AIDS. I have two friends who have AIDS and two friends that have HIV. I do not shun them or treat them any different than anyone else. And to be honest with you if they didn't tell you that they had these ailments then you would not even know. I… Continue

What are they thinking?


I read an article today that stated that there are schools her in the states trying to get rid of their sex education classes. What are they thinking? Teen Pregnancies are up and STD infections are up. If anything schools should be increasing the number of sex education classes. I believe that through educating the youth of the world and by providing the means of protection that we can lower both of these statistics and improve the number of individuals attending college or… Continue

What is a Celebrity?

What is a celebrity? A celebrity is a human other humans elevate to a higher than normal stature. So celebrities are just like the rest of us unless we elevate them to that high stature. They have wants, desires, needs, and secrets just like the rest of us. Although theirs are more televised and published than the rest of us. The one thing that we all must remember is; we need to treat them with the same respect and courtesy that you would anyone else who is not of the celebrity… Continue

Why do we have emotions? They get us into trouble. If we show them then people critize you for showing them; if you don't then they call you cold. There are times and places you should show your emotions like funerals. Emotions can be something of a quadry for most. Many wonder how you can do certain things without emotions. Sex without emotions is something simple you go you have fun and that is that. But many feel that there has to be some emotional responses and consequences to have sex… Continue

What is friendship? Is friendship something that can occur immediately or is it something that develops or can it be both? Are there people in the world we are destined to be friends with or is it all on chance? Lovers can be friends too right? Or would that fall under some other category? And if lovers are not friends than what are they? Shouldn't you always be friends with your lovers? Now one-nighters are a completely different story it is better if you barely now each other. Then there is… Continue

Role Models

I was watching an interview with one of my favorite bands and they said they weren't role models. That is not necessarily true. A role model is anyone who can inspire others to better themselves, to follow their dreams, to fight for what you think is right, and to find your true self. A role model can be anyone from your sister to your neighbor to the kid you babysit. It can be anyone as long as you draw some sort of inspiration or value from the way they live their lives. I have had many role… Continue

After looking at several fansites, I realized people don't care whether or not anything is considered private. Many of these people are like paparazzi. Taking pictures of them eating, taking care of their kids, and grocery shopping. There are some things that should be considered private. I mean I know they are famous and it should be expected however think about it from their perspectives. How would you feel if you were sitting in a restaurant eating on your down time which generally means no… Continue

Some people place to much importance on what other people think of them. To many people let others dictate what they do, say, or even look. The only true path to happiness is through our dreams but in order to realize those dreams or to follow through on them is by staying true to oneself. If you are not true to oneself then you are just a sheep and will be lead off the side of a cliff one of these days. Vanity is a weakness we all have and we all struggle with. Whether it is because we think… Continue

Toxic Television

Why is it that everyday we turn on our televisions we see negativity and prejudices? We are all human. We are all inside. Why do people for stupid reasons? Right now more than ever we should be standing together and helping or fellow man whether or not he/she looks like you or believes in the same things as you. To look down upon someone for the colour of their skin, their age, their sex, their religion, their sexuality, their nationality, or financial stature is nothing but being juvenile.… Continue

Fashion Frustrations

I mean I am not a large woman but I have broad shoulders, wide hips and large leg muscle not to mention an above average bust size. I wear size 40 jeans because of my hips. But I have to buy straight leg in order to fit my calf muscles. I have to buy XXL shirts unless I want every male I meet talking to my boobs. But even when I want a tighter shirt I have to buy XL to fit over my bust and to fit my shoulders. I can't even go to Victoria's secret to get bras because they don't go big enough.… Continue

Paparazzi and Media

Have you noticed recently how no matter what channel you turn on their is something about the lasted scandel involving a star? I know that when they chose these careers; they should expect less privacy but no privacy at all is going a bit far don't you think. I mean do I really want to know that some big star ate at a nice restaurant in flip flops. Come on Now. There is a place for a media presence like premieres, signings, scheduled appearances, awards shows and even at concerts but not when… Continue

Random Thoughts

I was thinking about something today. Whatever happened to giving a person a chance based on ambition and drive. When I was a child for many of the music industry jobs you didn't need a degree. You just needed a mentor or someone will to show you the ropes. My question is why do I need a communications degree to be an assistant for someone? I have above average computer skills and I am quick learner when it comes to technology. I may not own a cell phone but I have an understanding of them.… Continue

What is a fan?

I was asked by a friend to explain my opinion of what a fan is. So here it goes. A true fan appreciates the art not just the appearance of the one creating it. Looks do not always last but talent can last a lifetime. I mean look at Bob Dylan or BB King. They really don't have the looks but they have the talent. To be a real fan you have to understand the amount of hard work, pain, anguish, frustration, happiness, and determination that goes into what the artist is producing. So people who get… Continue

I was wondering the other day how fans can be for a band one day and not the next. I mean if you are a fan shouldn't you like them no matter what. I mean I still listen to bands from when I was a kid. I was a fan than and I am a fan now. So why do people seem to wash their hands of a band when something changes like their appearance or maybe even the style in which they dress. That would fall under the category of stupid. Their is more to a band then what they look like. I mean people like Bob… Continue

I had this Idea the other day and thought it would be cool. I thought about something....Why are hip hop and skater clothes sized the same as regular or rocker clothes. Why can't they compensate for the oversize? Like a shirt tagged small when it is actually a large. That way if you wear a small then it is the perfect amount of bagginess so it is not overwelming or to small. When you by you usually buy two sizes larger than you need or at least that is how I do it. Here is the example of how I… Continue
