Why Being Safe is Irresponsible




There comes a time/times in every man/woman/teen/young adult/babies life – when you have to look back and ask yourself – “what the heck have I been doing with my life??” For me, and for many of us, I think, the first time I legitimately thought that was when I turned 25. I’d been sailing through life – got through college, got a job that I kind of didn’t really like, was paying my bills and had just stared dancing – and one day I looked up and freaked out.

All my life I’d been making choices that I thought were correct because they didn’t rock the boat. They put me on the “right” path. I had a 9-5, I paid my bills, I was nice, I brushed my teeth, wore clean draws – for all intents and purposes, I was living a responsible life. And then, I had a revelation of sorts - revelate with me after the jump

Modesty, Honestly


Summer is winding down already and the 400° + days (#hyperbole) (can you hashtag a blog post??)  are swiftly coming to an end. Dressing for those can be a challenge. All you really want to wear is nothing, but that's not allowed most places. Also, you should wear clothes in public...always, just because. I got into a conversation the other day about this and the concept of modesty. How do you balance wanting to be comfortable, being comfortable showing some skin, but not over-doing it, which, really, is a fluid concept depending on how/where you grew up. An interesting discussion, I think. Let's get into it after the jump:

She's Confident? + Video


Confidence is a funny thing. In my old (super-old but really not at all old) age, I've started to think more about how I am perceived by people. Not because I want to change myself to fit any preconceived notions, but because it's always good to know what vibes you put into the world. You know what comment I get a lot? "You're just so confident!" It always baffles me. Sometimes I am confident, a lot of times I'm not. Especially in things that I really love or work hard at. Backwards, no? Yes...but I don't think I'm alone. Keep reading to see what I'm sayin' and see me put my money where my mouth is (such a weird expression..) Video after the jump...

On Doing the Most


Do you know that sometimes I have to go back and read past posts to remember what I write like? This is what happens at times like these. My mind is all a-jumble, friends. Up is down and left is right and west is...well, I'm never sure where west is. I have a really bad sense of direction. I'm the type who will go into a building and then forget how to get out. I even had a dream about it last night - I was driving my performance team to a gig and got us lost and everyone was all, "Umm it's 1:58 a.m! The place closes at 2!" and I was all, "relax...I'll use my ...GPS. Ah dang...we're not even in the right city ya'll..." and they were all..."ughh!" It was gripping. They'll probably turn it into a Lifetime biopic or something. Anyway, now that I've wasted a bit of your time, allow me to continue on with something a little more productive...
