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!
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
for allowing me to see the magic,
and to know it
can be

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!!
What a killer show.
The whole set was impressive, but I was more than happy when they closed the show with 
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.

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?
But at the same time it's fascinating.
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.

Hello 2018!!!

Holiday's came and went like lightening! 
I rang in the new year with awesome humans, a crab feed, tiki time and lots of dancing!
I partied hard and responsibly,
and opened my eyes on January first with
Bravo Angie!!
2016 & 2017 
consisted of: getting through Empty Nest Syndrome, cleansing negative people out of my life and realizing life is truly what you create it.  As cliche' as that sounds, I finally feel it in my veins.
Yesterday morning I took a solo drive to San Francisco.
I wandered and explored the Dogpatch Neighborhood.
I love all the abandoned historic piers, quaint neighborhoods and it even drizzled while I was walking around. Surprisingly, there was no wind and it wasn't cold. 
Check out my delicious breakfast!
Yes, that's a beignet.
(Breakfast at Just For You Cafe)
I must say, I really enjoy exploring by myself.  I can eat where I want, go where I want, take as long as I want to take photos and really take in the experience. I was home by 2pm and had time to cook a delicious dinner.
I have a feeling 2018 is going to be filled with
adventures, lots of food, solo trips, art, music and great company.
I respect your importance and life lessons.  I wouldn't be mentally where I am today without you. But, on the other hand,

Cleaning House

This clip of Oprah has gone viral(I'm assuming).
I keeps resurfacing, and throwing itself it front of my face.  And every time it crosses my path, I watch it in its entirely. It rings true. I have rid myself from "most" of the energy suckers. And I have noticed a big difference in my life.  I'm happier, but I have a few more strings that I need to cut. I'm a work in progress. So Im posting this as a reminder of where I am today.
And this video below, is what I came across trying to search for the one above. Haa!!
