Such a hold up.

Ay. Well this week has been rough. I've been sick, one of my babies has been sick, and I'm off schedule for putting up some new songs on Youtube.

My main plan was to do "Be Italian" from NINE. However, that song requires my voice to be in good shape, and my throat still feels like garbage from whatever sickness I had. So instead I opted for an easier song from the NINE soundtrack.

*drumroll please*

The song I did was "Unusual Way". Nicole Kidman performs this song, and it's not so challenging as Fergie's song. So I'm saving that one for when my sickness is gone. I'll be putting the vid up for you at the end of this blog.

So last night I looked at the calendar. I realized, "Hm, it's January 28th...gah time is going so fast." This made me realize something. My birthday is March 14th. On March 14th of this year, I will be 23 years old...Yes, I know. It's "young", but in the entertainment it? There are 15 years old with big names, and big acting roles in Hollywood. I'm still in this po-dunk town, and have yet to find the right outlet to fame. I know, I'm doing the whole "youtube" thing, but is that enough? I've made a deal with myself to try and start doing a new song each week. I'm just hoping I don't run out of songs anytime soon. God keeps telling me, "be patient, your time will come". I still wonder when??!!

Alright...change of plans

So I know I said I would have that Shakira song done this week...not gonna happen. First off, I'd like a sustain pedal for my keyboard, which is currently in the mail. Secondly, I'm sick, and I sound like garbage, and I just can't do that to anyones ears. So Next's hoping. If I don't have my sustain pedal by then, I'll just have to do "Be Italian" from the musical NINE. Here's hoping!

Next up....

Alright, so my next attempt for a video on Youtube, is to make a cover of Shakira's, "Men in this Town", song. I will try to do it on the piano, and it will be a bit slower, a bit more melodic. I'm not awesome at piano, but I'll try!

I guess this is it. I want to "make it big". Which should be obvious from my previous posts. I want to perform for the world, and I know I have what it takes. So, unlike the past where I would just wait for people to come to me, I'm going to finally put myself out there. So my goal is to do at least 1 song a week, and get it up on youtube. This week, I'm hoping to do the Shakira song. Next week, perhaps "Be Italian" performed by Fergie in the musical movie NINE. I'm sick this week, so I'll need to do something a bit more...low key. "Be Italian", certainly requires more energy.

Here is Shakira's version of "Men in this town".

Part 2 of project completed

Alright. Well I finished "Take it All", from the musical NINE. I think it went rather well...also though, a lot of the moves were improv. I will admit, at first I was a bit nervous. This song is done to a striptease. So how does one remain covered while putting on a show like that? Well..I had some layers. I didn't take much off either. More just sauntering about. In the movie, Luisa actually ends up being topless! Can't do that though, sorry! It's taken almost an hour for youtube to process it though! ay!

Well Step 1 completed

Well friends. I did it. I taped myself performing, "My husband makes movies", performed by Marion Cotillard in the movie, "NINE". The audio isn't good, but I'm hoping people can see through that. So my next goal, is, to by the end of this week, film myself doing, "Take it all". Also from NINE and performed by Marion Cotillard. I'm excited about this one. It's so full of energy and power, and you can feel her pain. I hope I can present the same feeling for people. SO deadline is Friday this week. Wish me luck!

here's a link to my video :-)

You'll need to take steps to accomplish your goal.

So, as I had stated in one of my earlier blogs, I was going to sing some of the songs off of "NINE", and post them on youtube. Well my friends, I recieved the soundtrack on Saturday, I've looked up the lyrics on the internet. I'm hoping tonight, to perform "my husband makes movies" soundtrack. Later on this week, I hope to be doing "Take it all". However, I won't be stripping down as much as Marion does in the film! I'm still not sure if I should do a playful "striptease", or just sit there and sway to the music. I think this song does call for some dancing at least. Not raunchy of course, but classy. Towards the end though, I WILL still be fully covered, just not wearing as much as I started out with.

When I get the new video up, I'll be sure to post it on here!

you have to conquer the small town first before you move onto bigger scarier places

Some people are just downright evil.

I'm sure most anyone in their life has been picked on by someone, but what makes certain individuals targets everywhere they go? What about them says, "Hey! I'm vulnerable, come pick on me!"

I consider myself, a fairly nice person. I don't pick on people. I actually try to stand up for the people that are getting picked on and don't deserve it. However, when I walk in a room, I guess people think I'm scary? Mind you, I'm 5'3, and quite petite. I'm just confident. I like myself. No, not in a vain way. I just accept myself for who I am. I accept that person looking back at me in the mirror. I am the way God had intended me to be. I can't say he's always thrilled with my behavior, but as far as how I look, etc. This is how I'm supposed to be, and I accept that.
For some reason people are either scared or intimidated by me. Yes, if you want, I can dish out a nice sarcastic comment. Really though, please don't mess with me. I am known to be rather sassy, and to not take any bull whatsoever.

That is one type of person. The person who is confident, and does not take garbage.

Then there's the mean person, that really is...just garbage.

I will never understand this person. They pick on the weak to make themselves feel better. I will NEVER get this process. I have a friend who is a bit younger, and is currently dealing with some terrible rumors. Three people have targeted her. Not sure why, they used to be her friends, and now they've turned on her. I've told my friend, Be strong! Don't listen to them! Don't show weakness! However, she is not wired in the confident, I don't give a F&$@ what you say mentality. She is the nice little girl that wants everyone to be happy, and to love her. I wish the world was this way sweety, I really do. Unfortunately, people are just evil. Not all of them, but a good majority.

I also never understood rumors. Why do people love to hear it? Why do people love to start something that they know is completely false to begin with??? Don't they know that there are some individuals who will actually go to the source to get confirmation if the rumor is true or not? Don't they feel like a fool when everyone has found out that they lied? ugh, so many ridiculous people out there.

I guess this is one of many reasons why I have very little for friends, and stick mainly to family. I don't like dealing with the unecessary drama. I don't want to hear your gossip. I just want people to get lives, get some self-esteem, and stop wasting their time drowning themselves in other peoples lives.
