i almost feel as though any moment i feel a surge of sentiment fizzling, i need to combat the frantic tide as any old good new yorker would do. but with "maturity" comes the realization that bottling up these sorts of feelings can lead to overzealous disasters and major regret. I made a pledge long ago that i would never look back with regret(and subsequently broken that pact far far too many times) but the last thing i want to do is leave here like a sterilized robot and let my subconscious defensive mechanisms enable me to deny savoring my last moments with the people i love so much in this place i love so much. so for right now ill just embrace the barrage of emotions and let reality settle in for these last five days here in oklahoma.

so my writing patterns have been all but consistent, and I think by now we can firmly come to understand that communication is not my strong suit. but its finally time to make some changes and the major transformation I'm about to belly flop into is a mecca north to NYC. If moving half of a country away isn't a big enough deal in and of itself, what amplifies the stress is the fact that this decision was made less than two weeks ago. so for the past say 9 days I've been frantically bombarded by an endless "to do" list--so to the point that i haven't even taking a moment to grapple with the whirlwind of emotions i feel in making this major life change.

A lot of blog content i stumble across showcase seamless organizational skills or makeup routines, and i sit there googly-eyed wishing i could obtain that sense of order in my life. If you don't already know me you'll shortly catch on to the blatant fact that I am frenzied, chaotic, tupsy turvy and did i mention A.D.D. to boot.
But the beautiful thing about the wonderful world of the world wide web is that it opens up a bounty of channels to express or celebrate the unfettered essence of diversity, variation and idiosyncracy which, afterall, blend into the kaleidoscopic landscape of this technological wunderweb. without the unique contributions of user-generated richness, we'd still be mired in the humdrum babble of a one-way method of communication. But as participants in the web 2.0 culture ,we are now obliged to contribute to the expansive conversation. and what we have to give is a unique smattering of our individual self.
the social stigmas identified with having ADHD are fundamentally misconstrued and debiitating IF you allow that intoxicating world of stereotypical babble into your life. many of the greatest thinkers of our time challenged established notions with rebellious indifference only to conquer herculaen feats in the face if a continuous onslaught of public scrutiny. so for the sake of adders and mankind alike iw ant to encourage all of you fun foolish messy clumzy riots out there, to lavish in your oddball ways of thinking. at 24 years old, i am just now starting to embrace my A.D.H.D. rather tha use it as as a crutch or attempt to conceal its unavoidable presence in my life.
so there goes my cathartic ramble,. Now onto the show!

- keep two spoons in your freezer at night and when you wake up in the morning put the spoons under your eyes to reduce swelling and immediately revitalize those sleep deprived crater-sized bags under your eyes,
- choose your outfit for the day the night before.
- establish routines--the only reason I remain (moderately) stable.
- buy a steamer- I hate ironing(don't we all?) and deciding to get a steamer has been one of the best investments i have made. I ordered the Hamilton Beach Full Size Garment Steamer from Amazon which is $65 and has a telescopic pole that retracts for easy storage. You get A LOT of bang for your buck!
- i have a tendency to lose things….quite frequently. and one of the fleeting bugaboos I regularly misplace is the sneaky earring back. God forbid I not wear my iconic pearl earrings. in order to put an end to this scavenger endless scavenger hunt, i decided to outsmart the system once and for all. And so I turned to the most sacredly incandescent one-stop-shop in cyberland with its infinite surplus of everything and anything you could ever imagine: Ebay. For the price of $3(and free shipping) i ordered 100 earring backs and tada! problem solved.
- my mom taught me this one: the quality of a person(particularly a man) can be summed up by three defining behavioral actions: how he treats his mother, waiters, and animals.
- another way to "figure someone out" is to take a glance at his or her "Top 25 Most Played" iphone playlist. True colors will inevitable be revealed.
- buy a shu uemura eyelash curler.
- never take yourself too damn seriously.

Freddie Mercury, Queen's whimsically bizarre flamboyant frontman know for his theatrical on-stage magnetism and his highly innovative and wildly captivating musical style, would have been 65 today.
The reason we’re successful, darling? My overall charisma, of course.
A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It’s a theatrical event.
"I want to live the Victorian live surrounded by exquisite clutter"
"I Want to Break Free" is the Queen song which I'm most giddy-eyed over at the present moment. So take the time to absorb this idiosyncratic ballad and revel in the "exquisite clutter"
other praise-worthy queen songs:
- don't stop me now
- killer queen
- bicycle race
- under pressure
- good old fashioned lover boy
- another one bites the dust
- bohemian rhapsody
- fat bottomed girls
- somebody to love
- we are the champions
