Like why cant everyone smile?

So yesterday while on my lunch break I decided to do something to make myself happy. I though of a few things, but while walking by a shoe store it came to me, SHOES! I browsed the shoes and came across a brand named TOMS. I am sure many of you have heard of them before as had I, but never tried on a pair. When you buy a pair of Toms a pair of shoes is also given to a needy child somewhere in the world. So after trying on a couple of pairs, I bought a navy pair of slip-ons. I ended up making myself smile and also made a child somewhere in the world smile too. Why cant more brands do this?

Like my life would suck without you

Yesterday was spent at home still recovering from what seemed like a lifetime of flu. Having spent the past week watching every movie under the sun I was looking for something new to waste my time on. So I decided to go through my itunes. While browsing through my many albums and random songs I realized that almost every artist in my library reminded me of certain people. I love the fact that when a certain artist comes on the play list that almost automatically a visual of a certain place or instance comes into you head. Be it bad or good the song takes you immediately back in time to a certain time.
 So having spent about two hours fooling around on my computer I wondered, "what artist best describes my life?" After some long deliberation I came to the conclusion that my relationship with Kelly Clarkson is probably the closest thing to a relationship that I have right now. Since the beginning of college I have had a long term relationship with this American Idol. From her first album to her current there has always been a connection and it continues to grow. There never seems to be a play list or CD made that doesn't have at least one of her songs on there. I am not quite sure the point of this posting, except maybe  I am wondering if anyone else out there has personal relationship with a song or artist. What are your thoughts?

Like the first time

Well I guess tonight should be a date to remember? Today, August 9th, 2010, is the first day I blogged. I have to admit it wasn't as bad as I thought. See the thing is that I have gone back and forth about writing one of these things for sometime. The first question I asked myself was, "what am I gonna blog about?". Well after some long deliberation I figured the thing I know the best, is me! So it was obvious I was going to write about my life. A little self absorbed? Maybe, but this blog is for me and well I am worth it. The second question I asked myself was, "who is gonna read this?". Honestly it doesn't really matter! This is an outlet for me and well if anyone wants to read it or comment on it they can. There were lots more questions that kept popping into my head, but it was the help of a friend that made me finally get on here. She knows who she is and I am so happy that our friendship has been rekindled. Anyways here I am writing a blog and living the dream. Lets see where it takes me!
