BLAH BLAH BLAH

I think i'm blogging again?

I've been the WORST NON COMMITTAL BLOGGER EVER. I used to be good at this. I have so much on my mind and I truly do enjoy writing. At either rate hello again. 

I just watched this video of Mark Cuban where he talks about deleting your digital footprint. This has actually been in the back of my mind and made me think of my twitter. Went through it way back to 2009, screen grabbed some LOL moments and then proceeded to accidentally delete every single one. :/ I don't know how I did that. 

At either rate. Here is the best of the best. I said "Yummers"... what the hell... I crack myself up.

"SUMMERTIME PARTY SHIRT"

I saw this nice man at the farmers market today and I told him I loved his shirt. He told me "thank you , this is my summer time party shirt." To say the least I was very amused.

unfamiliar/self

i never knew technology could be a form of therapy/ i was the saddest, most depressed, lost my soul and self when recorded this video nude, alone, confused, broken in 2011 / i would look in the mirror for brief moments in time, i couldn't even figure out who she was looking back/ who is this? is this a girl or is this a woman?/ i forced myself to do it, to look into my own eyes, remind myself what i look like when i smile, i forgot how to smile, i forced it. it felt uncomfortable, like i didn't deserve it./ in 2011 i watched this video a hundred times, through the weeks that came until i forgot it existed./ i had to rebuild my smile/ i had to tell myself everything horrible he said to me wasn't true, that hurt people hurt people, that i have a light inside of me/ i just needed help relighting my flame/

i came across this in my archives and decided to upload it/ vulnerability is beautiful and as i look at how i peered into the lens, the glassy look in my eyes. i was trying to look back into my soul, find it again. where did it go? how did i loose something so precious?/ 2011 left and today is her funeral/ lows are as important as the highs/ this isn't a post about sadness, to be depressing or anything of the sort/ this post is a celebration on moving forward/

as a artist, a woman, someone who is okay and open, sad, happy, angry, ready to face emotion, constantly preaching about the importance of allowance/ i said to myself "i should practice what i preach amelian!" / my/self replied by uploading this video/ 

every single time i greet my father "cool ass lenny", he never fails me. i always ask :

"dad, how are you today?"

he always replies :

"baby, i woke up today. life is great." 

dad is right/ life is beautiful/ wisdom always wins/ 

you are amazing. don't EVER let anyone make you feel any less.
