Too bad some people like to sleep Talking the American dream I woke up late at night to see Nightmares on every city street Somethings that made me wanna scream Can’t wake you, make you wanna see Silence is violence and defeat But you just stay quiet in the sheets, quiet in the sheets Traps songs in the frat house Trump sign in the window How can we be free in the future if the kids don’t Conquer the addiction Start to make revisions? Maybe most of all We should learn to fucking listen
I have yet to understand why so many people want to tear each other down. Life is not a competition, no one gets out alive and nothing we acquire in this life is going with us when we leave. So, why would anyone make it their mission to seek and destroy others? What is there to gain in doing that? I mean, I know misery loves company, but why would anyone want to embrace that misery by sharing it with others or causing it? There’s nothing good to gain from that…absolutely nothing. The only thing I can imagine that allows people to behave like this is that they lack that part of the human psyche that most of us possess…that part that seeks happiness for ourselves, as well as other people. When someone lacks that empathy and compassion, they are left with a giant hole. That hole is what religious people like to call evil, but I don’t believe in evil. I believe that people are innately good….unless they are missing that inner light. They are lacking goodness. They might fake it….cuz that’s what sociopaths often do, but deep down…they just don’t have it in them be truly good. I cannot truly imagine what that must be like, but it sounds absolutely horrible. Sadly, its the only thing that makes sense to me as to why people truly want to tear one another down. I would much rather see us all root for each other and watch each other grow.
Let me put the water in the bowl For your wounds, babe Let me fill you up with the fingers of love You can’t lose babe When you watch me play, does it feel bad, darlin’ When they choose me? Say again, this place Say again, this place
I broke my neck Dancing to the edge of the world, babe My mouth is wet, don’t you forget it Don’t you lose me Here is your princess And here is the horizon Here is your princess And here is the horizon
I’ve gotta scratch it down, I never could amount That’s it, babe And now the sugar’s run out And I don’t know what to say
“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.” ― Christopher Hitchens, The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever
It never snows in LA You’d never know it was a holiday I don’t believe that Jesus Christ was born to save me That’s an awful lot of pressure for a baby But here we are again, with family or friends Some extra time to spend and I’m not mad about it Don’t waste a dime on me, just want your company Beside a Christmas tree, if the dog allows it –Finneas – Another Year

This past year is definitely one for the history books. I could easily tear it all down and rant about all the wretched events that have occurred. I’d rather count the blessings and rejoice in the lessons. We all know what we’ve lost and there’s nothing to gain by focusing on our losses. We need to regroup and gather all that hope we had at the beginning of this year. We need to take that hope and truly visualize a better year for all of us. We have to let go of the hate, the sorrow, and the misery and move forwards with love, joy, and faith. It’s time for us to appreciate the people that uplift us. It’s time to reach out to those less fortunate. It’s time for us to embrace the lives we still get to live. It would be so easy for me to focus on my limitations and the restrictions in my life. Instead, I choose to embrace the freedoms and abilities that I often take for granted. Ok, I can’t be on my feet for more than ten minutes without experiencing some pretty intense pain, but I CAN be on my feet for ten minutes! I can walk from one room to the next. I can walk to my car. I have rooms. I have a car. Those are blessings. I appreciate them so much. I have haters that want to post lies about me. I also, have some of the most wonderful friends I could have ever hoped for in my life. So, that’s it. In looking at the yuck this year has delivered….if I dig deep enough, I also find some pretty awesome advantages. If you take a good look at your own life, I bet you’ll find some remarkable things worthy of gratitude, too.

So this is the same outfit I wore in my previous post, It’s Tannenbaum Time, but I changed the colors to a less festive theme. *laughs* Y’all know I couldn’t get out of that green & red fast enough, right? This is why fatpack is my favorite color! I’ll keep this one short & sweet…its going to be a long week! There’s going to be a lot of sales out there this week in both worlds, so please stay safe and Happy Shopping♥
Life is messy. There’s no doubt about that. Anyone with pets or children will attest to stepping in something questionable in the middle of the night. Nothing will throw off your day faster than cleaning up a mess like that first thing in the morning. Clearly, life isn’t perfect, but rather than compare our lives to those we see on our lovely screens…I think its better to embrace it. I know my life isn’t what I had hoped it would be and I changed my ideas about my life several times over the course of my life. Not once did I envision my life to be what it is now. I jokingly said I’d be a fat old woman who hates kids and has a bunch of cats. I don’t even have that! I mean, I don’t LOVE kids, but I surely don’t hate them. Ok, I am fat, so I got that goal down easy enough. Wait, was that a goal….oh god, I manifested that shit! Fuck me. Well, ok, so what. I’m fat, I got a grocery list of health problems and no insurance. I’m still here. I have rather decent roof over my head. *looks down at my fat body* Uhm, clearly, I have plenty to eat. *laughs* I have two running cars. I have one tiny feline terrorist and the most perfect smartest dog in all da world. And I still have my wonderful, albeit crazy, Mom. I am freaking blessed! Sure, I struggle financially, but it sure could be worse. My condo and my cars are paid in full. That’s a true blessing. As Thanksgiving (yes, its a U.S. holiday) comes sliding around the corner, I have a lot to be thankful for and I’m thankful that I do. Whether you celebrate this holiday or not, I think its a nice reminder to take some honest inventory of the blessings in our lives. It’s easy to forget those blessings as we go about our mundane daily routines. If you’re blessed enough to be reading this, it means you’ve been blessed with a little bit of time and the luxury of internet. While, I’m not so sure you need to be grateful for reading my ramblings, I’m pretty sure you’ve got your own plethora of blessings to behold. Oh…and don’t think I forgot you. I am very very grateful that you have taken that little bit of time from your life to read my words. More grateful than I can properly express, but Thank You.♥
It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings. I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.
