The 3 questions I had to answer:
If you could meet any person in history and take them to dinner, who would that person be?
Richard Pryor. His comedy, like his life was interesting. I would love to just chill and chat with the man that said “If I thought about it, I could be bitter, but I don’t feel like being bitter. Being bitter makes you immobile, and there’s too much that I still want to do.”
Do you think money can make you happy, or happier?
Money can make me happier than I already am by allowing me access to things that could help me help both myself and others. Trips, fancy clothes and the like are all nice, but it’s the security that comes with knowing that I have enough or more than enough to enjoy the things I want that feels good. As long as my needs are met, I can have my fun.
What is your idea of paradise?
Paradise is often seen as an escape from the norm. Paradise for me, is knowing that the people I love are happy and enjoying life. Being able to love and enjoy experiences I’ll never forget with the people worth sharing them with is my idea of paradise.
My 3 questions:
- What do you love to do?
- What would you do if you had more guts?
- When have you felt the most passionate and alive?
5 Years, ladies and gents! I’ve been writing about life, love, laughter and the random thoughts that pop into my wandering mind for 5 years (on WordPress). First off, thank each and every one of you for reading, commenting, emailing, and befriending me over the years. Knowing that someone gets what I’m putting down or even that they have questions about it is really encouraging.
I had to step away for a moment to make way for other experiences, and I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve written about the ins and outs of my life, so here goes. As some of you may or may not know I have been doing Background Acting (aka an Extra) for a while now, and things have picked up. I have been able to travel to cool venues, meet awesome people and to tip toe into the world of film and television that I’ve always loved. Now my Mother gets to me see as a Lawyer, Police Officer, Doctor and a plethora of other things. But more importantly she gets to see me being happy.
At some point I realized that I wasn’t happy doing what I was doing, I was stressed and “creatively bankrupt”. I feel alive more than ever these days, and it’s because of a shift I had to make. Sure things didn’t always work out, but I learned and grew. When I was younger I was afraid to try and fail at things, now that irrational fear has been washed away, allowing me to simply try.
For about the past 4 months I have been pursuing Voice Acting. I have always been curious about Voice-Over Artists and being able to give a voice to something. So I finally told myself that I had nothing to lose, only something to gain by giving this a try. I picked up some books like Voice-Over, Voice Actor by Yuri Lowenthal & Tara Platt, a Blue Spark Digital Microphone and some other equipment as I went along. I auditioned for a couple audio, original animation, fan dub, and video game projects. I have had the pleasure of laying down vocals for a few projects, some I can’t talk about yet, but there is one that I can and will mention in detail in another post.
I say all of that to say this. In the 5 years that I have been with you guys & girls on WordPress, I have gone through various transitions in life. From a 9 to 5 office job to Background Acting, from being single to being lost in love and back to being (happily) single.
My readers, my friends, you saved me. I only hope that at some point I was able to save you as well. Whether I made you smile, laugh, or aroused (it’s a possibility), I am glad that you let me into your life, even if it was just for a minute. Being able to connect with someone is a blessing and a privilege.
I don’t need to tell you
To be a good person
To do what you can
Don’t be selfish, when you can be kind
Don’t be afraid to love
You want the best, make sure you don’t destroy it
You don’t have a Blackheart baby
You don’t need me to tell you
You already know
You already know
Tell me who you are, and who you want to be
I’m bound cover to cover
Every word tattooed into the pages of your being I believe
I’m not immune to your charm
I like the way you think
Your tongue is more dangerous than any weapon
Blow me away with all the things you say
Just one word undoes everything
Even when it’s wrong, it’s still right
Make each and every one your own
Lend me your voice tonight
You know just what to say to keep me coming
Our word play pulls us closer together
Lost in your boundless beauty
Less is more addictive skin to skin
I need the skin you’re in to get me out of my head
The dream is never done
Caught up in this new chapter, it’s amazing
We’re rearranging and changing every definition
Desire begins in the mind
Even when it’s wrong, it’s still right
We’re bound cover to cover
