Shake it like a Polaroid picture

Matilda: Derek, I don’t know if you’re familiar with the belief that some Aboriginal tribes hold, it’s the concept that a photo might steal part of the soul. What are your thoughts on that as someone who gets his picture taken for a living?

Derek: Well, I guess I would have to answer your question with another question. How many abordigenals do you see modeling?

Take a picture

What’s a picture to you, reader?

Shake it like a polaroid picture

For me, it’s a way to document what I’m really feeling.

Fake it till you make it

And tonight, I needed to let off some steam.

Make my day

So yeah, I watched Zoolander tonight. Like a moment captured, it never gets old. 😉

Some Fairytale Bliss

I just realized I would have deserved a few pinches today considering it’s St. Patty’s Day, but pink will always be my favorite color because it’s cautiously optimistic and playful, just like me!

Out of body. Out of mind.

Spring is my favorite season. Though, I could do without the wind. It’s been said when March rolls in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, but in Las Vegas, they like to keep us on our toes. I shouldn’t complain. Compared to other states, NV’s weather may be perfection.

out-of-body-out-of-mind

Have you been to Designer Showcase‘s March Round? It also rolls in for bang each month. March brought in a brand new build along with new items. PurpleMoon Creations‘ Amberly Dress is one of those items. It’s almost like a make your own adventure story. Remember those? If you don’t, it’s easy. You make choices and find out the consequences. In this case,  the decisions won’t get you in trouble.

“My head’s above the rain and roses”

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name.

and-the-truth-thats-in-the-message

The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line!

just-shine-a-light-into-the-wreckage-so-far-away-away

I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over. The moral of my story? Sorry, but I don’t have one. This story is only beginning (or at least in the middle of the book). 😉
