Paroxysmal Tachycardia...wait its a fun post

Uh, apparently there is a disease title...and it is "very common, but really scary when it happens." What is it, you ask? Are you sitting down? It is The Fear of Impending Doom. Yes, I'm serious. There is a name for such a feeling that has been given the title of a medical condition. I'm sure there are other absurd conditions to ease the mind of hypochondriacs around the world, but I'm having a laugh over this one!


Although I did not find any medical reference to....the The Fear of Impending Doom, I still found it very funny. I found it on a site dedicated to the biography of Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran). He supposedly suffered from this condition in a Rock Star's version of a college student's all-nighter. I like to call it the all-weeker! I don't know! This post is sooo non-sensical. It's absolutely curious. Its renduculous. Its, its, its.... I don't

P.S. August 10th is National Duran Duran Appreciation Day. So turn up the 80's!

It's Amazing

I'm talking about the song by Jem---no not the cartoon girl from the early 80's. The artist. Which makes her name all that more cool to me because I remember the "Jem and the Holograms." Woooahhh Jeeeeem is truly outrageous, truly, truly, truly outrageous.... This is an amazing song and the title is befitting. I love it. Oddly enough, I heard it while using the bathroom in a Sheetz near my job ( I know--TMI). But thats part of the amazing-ness of this post's purpose.

The Purpose: Of course, seeing my present predicament at the time in Sheetz, I was not fully paying attention to the lyrics of this song. I just thought, "this sounds cool." And I had been previously listening to a song by the Recess Monkeys (Children's Music), thinking how it would be cool as background music to a home video. That's kinda what appealed to me about this song. I came home and fell asleep, no longer thinking of Jem. I woke up wanting to post a book report on another blog of mine. Instead, I youtube'd this song. Amazingly enough, I received hits for When You Say Nothing at All by Alison Krauss or original artist. Whatever. I then seen this name Jem and clicked it. Of course my attraction had been because of Cartoon Jem. This gets weirder and weirder to me. I remembered this song with ease. Now mind you, I have been trying to remember a jazz trio for a week now. Anyways, I find the song, think cool I found it and then it hit me--- or they hit me---the lyrics. Its about going after your dreams, taking control of your own life, your own personal power within to accomplish anything---all that I've been reading about. Its like this is what I'm searching for, telling people about, and then The Law of Attraction sends it right back to me! It's Amazing!

Its amazing,
Its amazing,
All that you can do
Its amazing
Makes my heart sing
Now its up to you

My Weather-ality

I took a silly quiz about my personality being a weather description. And I was SUNNY. Read on:

You Are Sunny

You are an upbeat, positive person who refuses to get too down in the dumps.
You realize that life is short, and you know you're going to try to have as much fun as possible!

You try to laugh, play, and love every day. You believe that happiness is a choice.
You take your responsibilities seriously, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself in the process.

When you talk to a stranger---or a new friend

I had lunch with, hopefully, a new friend today. We had interesting conversation, to say the least. And she helped me view myself in a different light. Sometimes we go through life viewing our personal problems/issues as mere "stains on our shirts." Something to ignore, get over, ya know? We don't stop to think how they affect our appearance, our self, to others. Then you meet a stranger and you casually talk about your stain. They give you a fresh perspective. Something your usual contacts overlook because they know you so well already. I've just had that experience today. I discussed my bitches about my life. My new friend pointed in new directions for me to go about solving them. Not as in new avenues to travel, but new ways of viewing my current bitches. Which then led to some "ahh-ha's" and "I see's" that helped me understand why I may have been failing to solve my problems.

The point? Talk to someone you don't know very well, thats trustworthy, to get a fresh outlook. Meet new people. Get a therapist. Never give up.

Have You Heard of All Those Crazy Holidays?

It seems everyday--almost--is a holiday. I've known about this craze for a while, back when I was writing a newsletter for a group of friends. I've learned that not many people know about all the celebrations. Personally, I think it's an awesome idea: a reason to celebrate and be happy (about something). Celebrating life everyday is a sure-fire way to get a positive attitude.

You may ask, "Why?" I ask, "Why not?" You'd be surprised how this little adjustment in questioning can change your outlook on something. Especially, when raising children.

Whatcha waiting on? Get started---I know you're curious. Here's a shove in the right direction:

These are just to get you started. A big name in this business is Chase's Calender of Events. You can buy it for 75 bucks! Or go to your local library and see if they have last year's edition. Be sure to research each holiday you may find on a site, or even several sites. Thats how I decide if a holiday is "for real." Have fun!
