the queen of ruNaround, you know itS truE.

confession's of c:
I tend to play games because I like well, the excitement... and I can't seem to be entertained by the same ole story for a long period of time. Don't get me wrong-I have always known this about myself, but I have yet to find the solution to my little tiff. WHY CAN'T I JUST BE SATISFIED. Then again, how much fun would that be?

I recently attended a Maroon 5 concert, and while I have always considered myself a fan of their music, I discovered a number of their songs that I never took the time to truly listen to. --Not so fast, music is my therapy, my love, & next to fashion, one of my most prized possessions. I've been one of those music freaks ever since I was little, and I'm not afraid to admit it. You see, I have this impatient habit of skipping over songs that I can't immediately relate to if the song lacks a catchy beat, I'm just not in that mood, or I'm short on time when I try to critique the album. I can't say I'm proud of it, but if I don't find a sufficient amount of songs that inspire me to continue to listen to the album in full, I'll slap the songs worthy to be played in my version of repeat (aka over, and over, and over, and over.........) into a fitting play-list and dismiss the rest of my album into my itunes library. Turns out I did exactly this when Maroon 5's first two cd's came out. I skipped over some really intense (but fabuless at the same time) songs about boys that have gotten messed up/messed with (whichever you prefer) by girls. I got to thinking while I was at the concert... am I one of those girls?

yoU know that feeLing. .

I came to the realization that the majority of what I feel is controlled by me, myself, and I. This may sound like a rather point blank concept, but think about it... When you are in the worst mood ever, everyone annoys you. When you just had a killer shopping trip and are on an endorphin kick because of it, little to nothing/nobody can touch your fabuless mood. Do you know how much you could use this to your advantage in relationships? It's all about how you think through each situation and its surroundings. I can control how I feel about everything and everyone by the way I file them away in my head; basically, I can convince myself of anything (now that's power). I always find myself making something out of nothing & nothing out of something. My problem lies in the distinguishing of the two. Throw the fact that I like competition and what I absolutely cannot have, and you have the ultimate definition of a complicated girl whose head is always on a swivel.
