Clear conscious

Built up anger doesn't do anything positive for the mind or the body.
Confronting the dark part of my heart was freeing. 
Approaching someone I grew to hate because of immature acts and a childish relationship was needed.
Discussing why a relationship didn't work with the person that was involved opened my heart, and I no longer have a deep hatred towards that person.
My conscious is clear. 
I have nothing to loathe or fear.
My conscious is clear.

People are always looking for change.
The world isn't good enough for itself.
People strive to be better.
What's the point?
In the end, is there really happiness and self-fulfilling satisfaction?
Or after everything is done are people just glad it's over?

Change is a part of everyday life.
We can fight it, just go with it, or stand at the forefront.
Each person chooses a different stance;

where will you stand?

Dark and Twisted

My mind wanders.
These wanderings are down paths that no one should ever venture on.

Sunday, November 8, 2009

I'm opening the door again. I've been closed up in my own mind for so long. I'm not sure what will happen, but I won't just live life feeling numb. I want to control it; I want to have control of myself.

I have been contemplating taking the next step. Going Vegan.
I love the vegetarian lifestyle that I live right now;
however, it leaves me wondering if that is as far as I want to go.
To be vegan is to be in control, disciplined, and good-natured.
I would have a hard time getting rid of some leather products I have, and also paying to replace my down pillows and comforters. On a student budget, such major changes would be pricey. I am going to stop buying those types of things as much as possible...but sometimes, especially as a fashion major, I make mistakes.

I am still not sure if I could really go vegan.
Do I have what it takes? 
What does it take?
Can I really change my lifestyle for forever?
........I still contemplate.

Everyday I wake up to a new battle,
sometimes these battles are in older wars 
and sometimes there are new wars to endure.
I don't speak of the petty battles of the materialistic world,
yet of the non-observant mindful battles.

I rage war against myself in many ways. 
For years, I have battled with confidence and esteem.
I battle the thoughts of being unworthy and not good enough.
I fight the voices of self-hatred with words of strength and wisdom;
however, I still fight these battles, and I fear that the war against myself will never end.
That part of me will never be at ease and have peace.

The war continues on with my heart.
The strings of my heart are being pulled at in opposite directions and I don't know what to do.
I don't know if I should open my heart and let people in completely, so that I can love,
and be loved without restraints;
or, if I should lock part of my heart up, and let that part of me never be touched or even known.
This major battle, and war, needs to end soon; 
the strings of my heart can't take it anymore.

I am at war with control.
I am uncertain if I can handle moments out of control,
but I am also uncertain if I can handle all moments in complete control.
I see other people living their lives out of control and they seem to be doing fine.
But then I have moments out of control, and things become problematic.
I can't seem to balance my control. 
I am uncertain if I want to live my life with complete control
or out of control completely.

These battles rage on,
and sometimes I feel like surrendering,
but then something or someone gives me the courage to carry on.
One day I hope the only battles I have to fight
are the ones of what to eat for breakfast or what shoes to wear today.

Is it real? Does it matter?

Sometimes I feel like I am standing still, 
and everything is spinning out of control around me.
I feel like a walking conundrum;
I am learning to appreciate the small things in life,
but sometimes I want to scream out 
and question the world about what is the big picture
I don't know whether to open myself entirely
and take the risk of shattering to pieces,
or protect myself and then later regret not living in the moment.
I don't know if these are just negative thoughts
that I ponder on a dreary day,
or if these thoughts are always there,
just masked behind sunshine, smiles, and giggles.
I accuse the unknown, but then ponder if that is the point
... not knowing.
The life of the care-free and the ones who can let go of the past, 
is something I long for;
but, as soon as I feel like I am being care-free and living in the present,
the hem of my dress gets snagged
and I fall into the life of the 
worried, hesitant, and closed-off.

Why I Write: Hope.

I’ve always wondered…if maybe, just maybe, one person, one girl, someone out there, who is completely lost like myself..maybe that person will find my words, and not feel alone..have some faith, some sort of  hope, that the world will be okay…even though I don’t even know if everything will be fine……

But I have always wondered…maybe, just maybe, I could change just one life…I would feel okay; I would find some comfort or a purpose to my life, if I just change that one person.

I want to make that one person feel loved. Make that one soul know that a small event doesn’t have to ruin the future, if they don’t want it to....I want to make one person think, and change the world in a small way for someone else…and this domino effect will change things for the better.

peace and love.

Earth Day, Every Day

Happy Earth Day!!
This is a day where Americans become aware of the environment and do a small part to make the world a better place…. If only we did this everyday.

Today was a beautiful day; I felt like mother nature was saying “look, I am a work of art, appreciate me, take care of me, and I will look amazing for years to come”. I was inspired by the shades of blue in the sky, the puffs in the clouds, the leaves blowing in the breeze, and the birds whistling along to a natural tune. While I sat down by the river and drew fashion designs, my soul was completely immersed in a sea of natural beauty.

the picnic table I sat at and pondered great things.

I wish to share the beauty of nature with as many people as possible.


Now many people think of being earth-friendly as a strenuous lifestyle. I tend to disagree; yes, it takes some effort at first, but after a bit, everything comes “natural”.
While sitting in a business class, I pondered a short list of things everyone can do to become more eco-friendly:

-Carry a reusable Water bottle

my reusable water bottle

-Walk or bike whenever possible
-Buy local and organic food
-Write your notes in a recycled notebook with soy based ink
-Write with refillable ink pens and non-mechanical pencils
-Wear clothing made from organic fabrics
-Recycle old clothing to thrift stores or your local Goodwill
-Use reusable shopping bags or opt for no bag when shopping.
Be aware of the impact your lifestyle has on the environment, and adapt the things you can, and try to change things to make up for the things you can’t change.


 books on how to live a "greener" life, global warming, and the environment.

my small eco-friendly recycled material notebook and refillable pen.


Every day should be Earth Day.

peace and love.

Lollapalooza 2009

(Lollapalooza crowd, stage, and skyline)

Lollapalooza released the band line up at midnight last night, and I have been filled with excitement and happiness ever since. This afternoon a purchased my ticket before the large number of festival-goers would sell out the middle priced tickets.

I am in a daze from the line-up. The bands are outrageous this year, and I can’t want to be mesmerized by their music that I have fallen in love with.  The bands that will leave me speechless include:
-Kings of Leon                   -The Killers
-Band of Horses
               -Vampire Weekend
-The Decemberists
           -Arctic Monkeys
-Ben Folds
                          -Silversun Pickups

And there are soo many more…..
So the weekend of August seventh through the ninth should be some of the best music days ever.

(Rage against the machine .)


Last year was my first experience of a large music festival, and it was one of the greatest moments of my life. There were so many great points for those three days: it was the weekend my boyfriend and I started officially dating; I was exposed to some of the greatest bands ever; Being among an extremely large crowd and feel the power of music touch my soul. I will never forget that weekend.

(Kanye West)

peace and love.

Bottled Water

I recently finished a research paper about bottled water. I don't see the reasoning behind bottled water. I live in a country where the tap water is about the nation's standards, so there is no harm in drinking the water from the faucet. I do use filters, that help to take out any chemicals in the water that could harm me, or make the water taste differently. Bottled water should be used in times of disasters and despair. We, the people of this planet, should be worrying about the places where water is scarce and the need for clean water is a life and death matter. Besides the worldly issues surrounding the privatization of water, the environmental impact that bottle water has is tremendous. Bottling water wastes valuable resources, natural and man-made, to package and ship another valuable resource. As one of the authors I cited for my research paper declared, "Bottled water is for the wealthy and uneducated."

Please think twice before you spend your money on a resource that you can get practically for free.
There are great alternatives out there to bottled water. 
-Purchase a Sigg bottle and fill it with tap water when you travel.
-Use filters on your house faucets
-Purchase a Brita, to filter and store water (if you don't think the tap water is cold enough, place it in your refrigerator.)
-Ask for tap water when you go out to eat at a restaurant, instead of the pricey bottled spring water.

By thinking about the simple things in life, and taking the environment into consideration, maybe the future generations will live in a clean world and be able to enjoy the beauty of nature.

peace and love.

Starting Over.

Recently, I have closed down my previous blog, for personal reasons, and I am now starting up this new one.
Being a Fashion Design major, a Business Entrepreneurial major, an environmentalist, a workout enthusiast, and overall a random kind of person, I don't know what to expect this particular blog to turn into.

The future is unknown and I am adventuring forward with my open mind.

peace and love.
