Blogtober Day 11: If I were president...



The first thing that pops in my mind when thinking of this question, is the scene in Legally Blonde when Elle Woods' friend Margo shouts out "Vote for Elle!" and claps ecstatically.

If I were president, life would be a bowl of cherries. No really, I would ensure that cherries were at peak all year long, forget a designated season. Everyone would get them delivered to their door step fresh, which in turn would cause for more employment opportunities. See? Clear economic direction already.

If I were president, cupcakes would be free in each city twice a week, there would be no stray or abandoned dogs, and bullies would be sent to an island a la Naked and Afraid. They would have a chance at redemption, because we all make mistakes, but would first have plenty of time on that island to reflect on their actions.

If I were president I would get to the bottom of the cure for Cancer and Aids; teachers would be the highest paid people in our country; and children, or anyone for that matter, would not be going to bed hungry.

If I were president, I would use more kindness than any other tool. I would weigh out every heavy decision with the best chamomile tea I could find and I would write back to anyone who ever wrote to me.

Sure my presidential dreams may be a little Pollyanna, but I can definitely think of worse styles to emulate. It may all seem simple minded or light, but really, that's just my groove. After all, you'll always attract more bees with honey than vinegar.

Until we meet again,

  1. If cherries were available all year round I'd be the happiest person alive.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
