Updating

Ok, due to popular demand I am updating. Tomorrow is Gooble Gooble Turkey Day and what do we have to show for it. For one, a long very long weekend...the busiest shopping weekend of the year...the turkey makes me sleepy...and a whole lot of festivities in my hometown! I feel like being cheesy and attending my town's treelighting- hey its free and I am BROKE!!! I am beat...Charlie Brown's Mayflower Voyagers all day can really drain me...Just sitting here listening to my oldest bro's odd very odd collection of mp3s. Listening to "What a Feeling!" by Irene Cara...now that movie did blow (Flashdance)...I am so done with this song about half way through...adhd...but I do have a new appreciation of "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard. Brace yourselves (yourself...who am I kidding...my bro is the only person who will read this)...my first celebrity crush...1985ish...he is in a bite of a jam now...and he has changed much since then...http://anomalies-unlimited.com/Jackson.html
That's all for now...I'm out and about. Rock on and eat wisely!

Growing up...

I believe that music defines the person. I listen to many different types of music but I had to pick one musician who speaks to me and about me, I would chose John Cougar Mellencamp. Before there was cds or tapes, my family had a record player. My fondest father/daughter memories involve dad and I dancing to JCM (John Cougar Mellencamp)playing on this record player. My father owned, "American Fool," "Uh-Huh," and "Scarecrow." When mom was at work late and my brothers were doing what they did best back then (leaving me out), my father and I would dance the night away. Even back then I knew that my father was a horrible dancer...but that did not matter. All that mattered was the moments we shared...the feeling of security and sancuary being daddy's little girl...my father is sick now. He has cancer. He has changed much since the days of dancing to JCM. Living with him hurts now...it hurts to see him so miserable, hopeless, depressed...It seems like their are two types of people: defeatists and the conquerors. My father let himself become a defeatist.

My First Entry...

Ok, so I have never done this before. I must admit that I am quite scared and nervous...but I need some kind of outlet to express myself. Right now, my life is crazy...about a year ago, I graduated from a small college in New Jersey. With my degree in History and the economy sucking, I was desolate in finding a job...any job. So I did what most unemployed people do-live at home with the rents and go back to school. Both decisions have been rough!!!
