Waiting For Our Real Life

"When I look in the mirror I see the girl I was when I was growing up, with braces, crooked teeth, a baby face and a skinny body."
Heather Locklear



I think there is a general feeling of dread for those of my generation who are looking for their dream jobs and possibly for their dream family lives. It seems that without these pieces fitting in to place real life has not started and it's almost is we're stuck in some sort of purgatory. For those who are still in college think, well, this isn't it, this is only the journey. Once I get there my real life is going to start. This is what I thought until I finished my BA degree and realized there are so many other choices. I could go back to school get my MA, I could get a real job and settle somewhere. I work as a secretary in a University and I still keep wondering when my real life will actually begin. 


I don't think there is any certainty when someone starts their real life. They get a job, they stay there for a few years, they move along until they find possibly a better job and possibly not. Truthfully, it's possible our real lives never stop being our real lives. It is all about perspective, life is what you make of it. 


As people, we can't stop growing and changing or we become unhappy. Even if you feel you haven't quite reached your destination, take a minute and try to enjoy your current location. Perhaps you will find you are on the road to the world's largest ball of yarn or something. Because if we are anything other than constantly changing and growing creatures then we are also our memories. 


p.s. Do not worry Heather Locklear, you grew up just fine and sometimes we hate you for it. Hugs and Kisses.

POTUS is Decided...it is Time for Respect

Potus​ decision aside. Secretary Hillary Clinton​ is human just like the rest of us. This means she is fallible...just like the rest of us. She has humbled herself more than once for this country by owning up to her mistakes and most likely the mistakes of others. She did this because that's what leaders are supposed to do. Admit to your mistakes; take responsibility as leader for your employees’ mistakes. Then you move on from there to find solutions. Secretary Clinton showed courage, conviction, and loyalty. To her party, her President and also her country. As she continues to fight for children and what she believes is best for this country, I have more admiration for her than ever.
I hope that the people of this country will at least begin to treat her with the respect she deserves and has not received. If not for her political views or her public record, for the years of service she fought for this country, for the causes she continues to fight for and for the positions she…

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman



When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 



For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 


When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

I am a Christian, I believe God exists. The following blog is a paper I wrote for my religion class, because I wanted to find in the Bible where it stated homosexuality was a sin. As a Christian I stand by everything I write in that paper and I feel it's time we stop hiding our prejudice behind religion. I am a racist, but it's not because of the Bible, it's because white people are really dumb (joke).

Christian morality is based primarily on what has been established as their word of God, the Bible. Those who have established themselves according to these laws are considered virtuous morally and spiritually. Those who have stepped out of these guidelines have established themselves as…
