Misery Is. What Misery Does.

It's not common someone goes out of their way to try
and sabotage my life.
Take it as a compliment.
That's what I'll do.
So much hatred in the world.
The cycle should be broken.
No Revenge.
Karma 
always 
takes the wheel.
I'll keep my peace.
I've worked too hard to 
just give it away
to someone who is
not content with their life.







-Here are some wise words by Eartha Kitt-

I love Eartha Kitt
I've been watching a lot of her interviews lately.
I think I'll do my next post of her.

ROAM if you want to

This Dork just booked her
San Miguel de Allende
flights!
Que Pasa Mexico?!!!!
See you in
November!!
Magically this all came together. 
I do not have a lot of money, I do not own a credit card.
After penny pinching and working my ass off, this was a possibility.
I cut my cable bill in half, no mani/pedi's, no shopping, cooking at home and eating leftovers, little drinking and not going out as much this past two months has saved me a lot.
Its a lifestyle change and sacrifice.
But its not that hard to achieve.
Have a strategy and make shit happen.


I'm going to Mexico Bitches!!!!

EL CHORRO STREET

After doing some research on the street we are staying on in San Miguel de Allende, I came across this awesome blog post!
(click below to check it out)

beautiful intro 
to the 
beautiful little curvy street named
El Chorro.

I am leaving this right here, because it also is my
To-Do-List Reference.

Make It Happen

This is so wiiild!
I'm going to Mexico in November.
San Miguel de Allende 
to be exact.
 I have never been to Mexico.
Its been on my to-do-list
for decades.
I refuse to do a Resort experience, its just not my style.
A group of us are going and one person is from Guanajato.
Which means....
We have a local to show us around and who can speak the language!!
We are staying in a mansion, blocks away from Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel.
Its amazing how cheap it is to stay in a plush home, with a maid in Mexico. 
Awesome right!??
This "idea" has been in the works since last October.  I didnt think I could afford it since I'm going to Japan in May.
But after a long deliberation, and writing down financial goals, I realized this is not impossible!
So BAM!
Shit's taking off,
and this is slowly becoming a reality.
By the end of this month I'll have my plane ticket.

I really need to check out this church with all its Baroque Murals.
And of course I gotta check out, The Museum of Mummies.
Now that this is set in stone, I'll start my research and see what else I can add to my Must-See-List.
Life is good.
Everyday I am appreciative and inspired.
My dream has always been to see the world.
This is just the start.
Thank You
-2018-
for allowing me to see the magic,
and to know it
can be
mine.

Watched this on Sunday.
Whomever did costume design, killed it!
There were no subtitles, but it was eye candy all the way through, so that was cool.

Soft Kill

Finally saw Soft Kill last Tuesday!!
Fuuuck!! 
What a killer show.
The whole set was impressive, but I was more than happy when they closed the show with 
"Whirl" 
All the footage I took was so shitty, it was super dark and loud in there.  My phone just didnt Cut It.  Besides that, Rad Show! Rad Time! Rad Venue
The venue was at the Starline Social Club in Oakland.
This was my first time seeing a show here. 
You walk in and its this cute loungy, restaurant/bar. They have a mini stage and there was an acoustic band playing. After walking through
towards the back there is a wide art deco staircase that takes you to the top.  OMG! The second floor is so RAD! They little vintage booths, tall windows, a bar, a decent stage and restrooms. Real Neat location.

Stunning!
This collection reminds of the underside of a mushroom, the gills of sea creatures and H.R. Giger.
Bravo!
Enjoy!

Smile Now, Cry Later


This post took awhile. It's the perfect example of the power/influence of music. I was devastated when I heard the news that Dolores O'Riordan
had died.  To have never met a person and be crying over their death?
Bizarre.
But at the same time it's fascinating.
Music
is 
Magic.
It's a wild connection to all your senses.
Thank you Dolores and The Cranberries
for getting me through my crazy teen years,  an abusive relationship, loneliness and heartbreak . 
Here are a few of my favorites.
