Some of My Favorite Quotes
I read somewhere... how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong... but to feel strong.

No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild.

So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

Surely all Americans have the right to give their money only to those causes which they support. But what kind of society has this created? A society where the ignorant reign. A society where enlightened must hold their tongues. A nation whose politicians must profess half-hearted devotion to an ancient fable or face the disastrous consequences of speaking their true mind.

Some people feel like they don't deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past.

The core of mans' spirit comes from new experiences.

If we admit that human life can be ruled by reason, then all possibility of life is destroyed.

Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness... give me truth.

I think careers are a 20th century invention and I don't want one

There is pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and the music in its roar;
I love not man the less, but Nature more.

It should not be denied... that being footloose has always exhilarated us. It is associated in our minds with escape from history and oppression and law and irksome obligations, with absolute freedom, and the road has always led west.

I have lived through much and now I think I have found what is needed for happiness. A quiet, secluded life in the country with the possibility of being useful to people...

Death's a fierce meadowlark: but to die having made
Something more equal to the centuries
Than muscle and bone, is mostly to shed weakness

..the sea's only gifts are harsh blows and, occasionally, the chance to feel strong. Now, I don't know much about the sea, but I do know that that's the way it is here. And I also know how important it is in life not necessarily to be strong but to feel strong, to measure yourself at least once, to find yourself at least once in the most ancient of human conditions, facing blind, deaf stone alone, with nothing to help you but your own hands and your own
For 2,000 years we have wandered
We have been nomads
When will we settle
We must not be fooled of the lives and homes we have built here because that too shall change
Our location is not permanent
Permanent is the soul we have buried inside of us
Some may have houses and truly believe they are here for good but we must not learn from them because they are lost souls
We have the mezuza that reminds us that were not here for good
We await for our real home
We await the eagle that longs to reveal itself
We await our messenger to lead us
We await for our G D who awaits us to clean up our act
Who awaits who
So we wait
So I wait.......

Once Romeo thought he had power
Until his life and love went sour
While Romeos heart got bigger
Paris thought about the trigger
Paris fell twenty miles per hour
Musically Changing
Until about 2 years ago i wasn't into good music. I had songs on my ipod that were predictable for someone my age. I did however branch out even back then, i was listening to rock and contemporary stuff, a little bit of opera. I did and still love music that is not very famous. I hate famous music i feel as if it gets misused constantly. So 2 years ago, i cant really remember how, but i stumbled upon a song that i really loved. It was by iron and wine called he lay in the reins. Now i don't know if it was this song that got it all started but lets just say it did for the sake of conversation. It was this song and blue skies by r-strays don't sleep from then on i started to get into good music. I discovered artists i never knew about and genres that i never would have thought i liked. I let this one song in and the rest just came to me. Whenever i hear a song and i like it i will move heaven and earth just to get it. A lot of the songs i hear and like, sometimes don't have lyrics or i don't remember the lyrics so it makes it that much harder. I'm not going to lie it is hard work tracking down the songs i like but in the end its worth it, a lot of times its not available on limewire or even on itunes so you have to search on the Internet and beg someone to send it to you, sorry different story. i remember this one time i fell in love with a song and it was in spanish so i checked dozens of Spanish websites and tried to find it. The only problem was that i didn't know Spanish and still don't know Spanish. I ended up buying this album that i thought might have this song on it. Turns out that it wasn't there. After several months of searching for this song, yes months, i found it on this spanish forum that suggested that it might be this song and keep in mind that YouTube wasn't really famous when i was searching, it i didn't have these songs that i can look for so easily. Oh yea the song was called Una palabra by Carlos varela. After liking a couple of songs that weren't "normal" i found more and more and became obsessed. I barely have any contemporary songs on my ipod anymore and i delete songs like crazy all the time because its just too much. i have 1,200 songs on my itunes and i love them all. Most of it is soft and some are opera, it's all different types of genre and that's what i love about it. Another one i went crazy for was kid by pretenders,the live version in this pub, amazing song. All I'm saying is try some new songs that you might not have tried before and let it fill your heart. You wills see that you will love it.
Some artist are: Yael Naim the pierces, iron and wine, coldplay,snow patrol, Andrea bocelli, Michael bubble, frank Sinatra, the killer, Taylor swift( i know famous) , Carlos Santana, x-ray dog etc.
Hectic Day
Phew was today a hassle. Hey guys, i decided to talk about my life from now on. Not every day but every now and then. I've been experimenting with make up look lately and i think i like it. I'm not very into make up but I do like doing it, not so much other people because I don't really know what they like and I'm no make up artist. I experiment on my skin and know what looks best on me and not others so it's going to look different on them maybe better and maybe worse. I never volunteer, only if someone asks then I say o.k, my sister is a lot more talented in the art department then me so she's more creative with the make up I'm very into neutrals and smokey eyes. Don't get me wrong i know make up or at least i think i do and i know how to do it and i like it some people might not and some people may like it. Can't please everyone right. Anyway oh yea back to the topic, today was exhausting and i just want to crawl up in bed and sleep but cant because i need to study. Do you ever feel like you need so much but when you stop and think about it you don't need it. You just need it to improve your life but it doesn't improve your life, it doesn't at all so why do we need it? Something that I have been dwelling in for a while. Like these clothes wont make me happy for long i just want it to make me look better, but do i really want to be judged on the outside and not on the inside. Todays my friends birthday and she turned 17 i can't believe she's 17 it seemed only yesterday i was calling her Margaret, even tough thats not her name. That's just my thoughts at the moment and I'll chat with you later. Bye.
Try Something New
Have you been wanting to make a change but don't know where to start, well I can help you.
This month is change month on my blog, so I will be putting up posts on how to improve your life in a series of categories. Remember you don't know how something is until you try it, even though you might think that it's a bad idea or a bad thing for you, you will never know until you try it. Now I'm no expert but this is my mindset and the way i like to do things and the way I think it works bets for me. Just my preferences, things I enjoy and what works for me and my life and who knows it just might work for you. Try reading something new listening to new music etc. Until next time, have a great day.
Book Review
Hey Guys
I'm so sorry that I have been M.I.A lately but i was really busy with life. So today is a review about a book. Confessions of a Shopaholic is an amazing book. It was very different then the movie and there is a whole series which I will be reading shortly. It's about a financial journalist Rebecca Bloomwood living in London,England who has a addiction to shopping and is trying to pay off her credit card debt. Along the way she meets a couple of millionaires who she may or may not fall for. She doesn't give 2 craps about fiancees but has to stick it out for the money. In the end she uses her financial skills to help out some old friends. This book is truly a delight, I finished it in less then a day and it's extremely enticing and very easy to read. You see how she procrastinates and makes something negative into something positive, well at least when it comes to shopping. I recommend this book to anyone who wants a laugh and needs a little sparkle in their life. Until next time, Have a good one.
