Today’s eye-opener comes to us from the ever so fashionable Makeda. All she needs in her life is a little Angelina Jolie and a lot of music.
I have been obsessed with this woman since 1995, basically since I was five and I’m 21 years old now. She is one of the most inspiring individuals in my life besides my mother and grandmother. From her less than enticing life style to being one of the most desirable women of the 21st century. I had the pleasure to watch her evolve throughout the years. She is beautiful and smart and has inspired me to become a U.N ambassador in my later life and has taught me that it was okay to be who I am without whispering these words in my ear. I get really excited when I hear her name and see her face, sort of like when a shopaholic hears about a sample sale.
When I’m not glued to my partial cubicle, 9 times out of 10 I have headphones in my ear. Music has been a way for me to run into the wild, jump off a cliff, and dive into a pool fileld with flowers. Basically, live in my own little world. ^_^ I love how it evokes emotions that I never knew existed. For every moment that I have encountered, music has always been by my side. My besftriend and my worst enemy. My Lover and and the food for my soul. I could not exist if music was never around.
“The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. The intellect, the will, are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities, and affections, in the mouth. The animals look for man’s intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye. Hiram Powers, American sculptor (1805 – 1873)”
When I look at myself in the mirror I like to see everything that I can improve about Makeda. To constantly grow and expand beyond borders that I fantasize about jumping. I sort of have a weird fascination with snakes. I enjoy the fact that they can shed their skin. To me it is a phase of rebirth and every night before I go to sleep I look at myself to try and find my soul (Yes, I accepted the fact that I’m “weird” and I embrace it.com.) Sometimes I just feel like I exist and when I have the opportunity to see myself I try to see what other people see. I try to find myself by looking at myself, which is questionable. It is another reason why I cannot look at people in there eyes for more than three seconds because I feel like there trying to take my soul. LOL not kidding.
