Yup, this is the most random blog.. ever.
So I guess after my massive blog about catching up on Project Life, I was creatively drained and obviously at a loss for words cause I haven't blogged since. A few days of hanging out in the computer room and scrapbooking was enough to make me steer clear to find other things to do. I guess it's all a part of that balance, well in this case, lack of. In case you haven't noticed, I'm one of those "All or Nothing" kind of gals. Where I invest all my time in one thing and seem to lose sight of other things until it is done. I guess to my benefit, that's how I get stuff done.
Now it's December and I'm back in my Creative Corner because it's the start of December Daily, something I've been doing for the past 5 years. And as much as I toyed with the idea of not doing it, cause lets face it, I'm behind a few weeks on Project Life (again). I found myself in the craft store with Holiday papers in hand and fully inspired to do another December Daily. Why quit the tradition?
It's 10:04 pm. I'm usually drinking a cup of Rooibos tea while watching TV getting ready for bed, but I'm up organinzing my photos for my Project Life and December Daily. I haven't been able to download photos from my phone because my laptop was not backing up after I updated my iOS to Maverick... but finally got it fixed.
I've got Eminem's latest album blaring through the computer.
Speaking of Eminem, he will always be one of my favorite artists, despite how crude, insulting, or even offensive he is to some. His music will always send me adrift to a different place. His new album is another masterpiece, some which make me chuckle (in a dark and twisted way) but some lyrics that deserves to be on repeat.
One of my favorite is Beautiful Pain.
As time passes, things change everyday
But wounds, wounds heal
But scars still remain the same
But tomorrow today's gone down in flames
Throw the match, set the past up ablaze
So feel the fire beneath your feet
As you barely even perspire from the heat
Exhale deep and breathe a sigh of relief
And as you say goodbye to the grief
It's like watching the walls melt in your prison cell
But you've extinguished this living hell
Still a little piece of you dies, you scream
I feel the burn, watch the smoke as I turn rising,
A phoenix from the flames
I have learned, from fighting fights, that weren't mine
Not with fists, but with wings that I will fly
This song inspired me to get more "ink". I've always wanted to tattoo the Phoenix somewhere on my back.. Phoenix meanings deals with rebirth, growth, life, and so many more awesome attributes. The phoenix is a mythological bird that recycles its own life. When it perceives its impending death, the phoenix ignites itself into a magnificent fire. In time, it reemerges from its own ashes - reborn, renewed, and very much alive. (But it hasn't even been a year since my last ink... It's true, these things are addicting.)
Some of my other faves are:
Headlights (the first time I heard this, I immediately put that on repeat!)
Rhyme or Reason (chuckle.. this always makes me laugh)
This is the album that has been repeat while at the gym lately. It's pushed me through my sets, no need for extra caffiene, Eminem's got my back.
Well this was a random post.
I swear I had all these pics and stories to share, mostly about my dog(s). But I'm sure you get enough updates and photos on my Instagram Feed. I love my dogs.. I think everyone should have pets, they teach us so much about life and love. But I'll get around to that, for now it's 10:40pm, way past my bedtime... back to the comfy sofa to finish off this tea and re-reading Catching Fire.
