Music & Art – What Do You Think?

Filed under: art,blogging,music,thoughts — by Monica @ 9:13 pm

If I Were A Boy; do you prefer BC Jean’s version of the song – the woman who actually wrote the words! – or the more famously known rendition by Beyonce?

Personally, I love BC’s raspy voice. I’ve been listening to it over and over in the past couple days. 

I can spend hours on YouTube. I look one thing up and then from there I just stumble upon one thing to another.  Below, is a video of artist Nick San Pedro painting Britney Spears Circus. The video is pretty cool and so is his style. He is infamous for celebrity portraits. Check out his website for more faces and he also sells the paintings and prints as well.

Thanks for stopping by, and  until next time, have a wonderful rest of the weekend!

Welcome, Wednesday, Come On In!

Filed under: meme,thoughts — by Monica @ 5:51 am

Here is to the wonderful weirdness that is Wednesday!

1. Why do you keep a blog?

I cannot think of any good reason except for mere personal pleasure. I read other people’s blogs, I read and I read all the time, and I just always wanted to write myself! Nothing was ever stopping me. Well, except that I thought you needed to have some kind of a reason or some sort of theme such as a craft blog or a fashion blog, something or other, and that you could not just have a random blog. I couldn’t think of anything I wanted to focus in on if I were to have my own blog. So I’m just not going to. It’ll be about anything and everything. Hey, it’s my blog! So to sum it up: an outlet for personal writing, like a journal. And as you’ll notice, I’m pretty brand spankin’ new too – this is my third post; the blog is only 2 or 3 days old!

2. Who is one long lost blogger you wish would come back?

There’s a couple of them. I use to follow blogs religiously when I was in middle and high school. was among a hand full of them (before it became an amateur porn site). And I would follow I also followed (or com or org or I don’t remember now). 

3. If you made a New Year’s Resolution, did you break it already? If you did not make one, why?

I have made several resolutions, refer to my first post. Let’s just say, it’s still in the making. There is still time! The year is not yet over! Admittedly, I haven’t been completely devoted to these resolutions in the past week, and I agree that it’s not the best start. However, I do have a plan! It’s not as if I’m trying to quit smoking and I just fell off the wagon. I’m actually a non-smoker by the way. My resolutions are not a make it or break it deal. I’m still good.

4. People who still have their outside Christmas lights up. Festive or Lazy? Discuss.

Festive! There are some people who might actually be just plain ‘ol lazy, but do you blame them all that much? You spend all that time and all that energy just to get ’em on up there, so why not enjoy the pretty night lights for as long as you possibly can! 

5. What is the last annoying song that got trapped in your head?

Poker Face by Lady Gaga. When I first heard it, I liked it. It was a fun little dance song. But now? It is starting to get on my nerves. 

6. Have you ever worn or tried edible underwear? What are your thoughts on it?

Great question. No I haven’t tried it. And will I ever try it? Most likely not. I’m pretty open minded and enjoy trying new things, but seriously, I don’t see how this is at all sexy. I am trying to picture it. I don’t even know what a pair really looks like! I guess I could just google it, but before I do, I’m thinking it’s either like a Fruit Roll-up type thing, or like the candies that are made into necklaces or bracelets and you bite them off (I’ve seen edible bras made like that before). The idea to me just seems kind of silly. I’m looking at photos on google now and the Pull N Peel knitted thong looks cool! Although, I personally just cannot see myself wearing a pair. But maybe I’m wrong. 

Bonus: If you could do one bad thing and get away with it, what would you do and why?

I already do bad things and get away with it 😉


Thanks for reading ladies and gents! And just a note: I’m new and still learning what all WordPress has to offer. So all I ask is that you bear with me. If you have any tips, suggestions, or any general comments, feel free to post and let me know. Thanks again!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Filed under: blogging,diary,reflections,thoughts — by Monica @ 5:35 am

Something to know about me: I love words. This is actually just a new found love as of late. Admittedly, I have never really enjoyed words as much as I do now. Perhaps not being in school anymore (ie. High School or university) has something to do with it, especially where as I am eager to learn! And now, where I am no longer in an environment that encourages and soley focuses on this sort of behavior, I really have to depend on myself to keep learning continuously, now that I am no longer in an education institution of any kind.

I work an eight hour job, seven days a week – if not more, – and it is merely words that bring an elatedness to my day. I am constantly jotting down unfamiliar or uncertain words, checking its pronunciation using online dictionaries. I always have a pen and paper handy, otherwise my iPod Touch will do the trick, and either in conversation or reading novels and articles, I will take note of a word and look it up immediately or go back to it shortly after. This is just one of my few goals for 2009, which is to expand my vocabulary.

As was previously mentioned, expanding my vocabulary is one of many other New Year’s resolutions. The following are other resolutions I have set for myself, and they are:

  1. Take more pictures – which means charge my camera regularly. I miss cameras that just took measly ‘ol AA batteries
  2. Learn to cook 
  3. Read more than I already do – I’ve created a reading list on my facebook, which I will post here later.
  4. Go to the gym – enough said. 
  5. Take a crash course on my car (ie, learn how to open the hood and check oil, etc) 
  6. Think before talking; be more considerate of others feelings & how they may perceive me
  7. Have a blog 
  8.  Become devoted to a couple memes during the week
  9. Be more tidy & organized  
  10. Expand my vocabulary – look out for my Wednesday Words: new words I’ve learned, displayed here on a weekly basis.
