HHN 24 in Review

I love when October comes around because that only means one massive thing for me Halloween Horror Nights or as we call it here in Orlando HHN. I was really excited this year because even though they had Walking Dead again, they also had a Halloween Housed based on Michael Myers which is one of my all time favorite classic characters. Unfortunately I had the chance to only go to four out of the eight houses due to the amount of waiting time. I would love to go again so I could experience the other four houses. I love HHN because I love the adrenaline I feel when I walk through the Houses and the Scare Zones to see the amount of creativity and work they put in.

                                    WELCOME to HHN 24 2014 at Universal Studios Orlando, FL. {My OOTD: Black Crop Top Dots, Highwaisted Denim Jeans- Lane Bryant,Black Vans, Red/ Black Plaid Shirt Target, Brown Bag Charlotte Russe, Ray Ban Aviators, 90′s choker Urban Outfitters, and Red Under top Forever 21. Red lips Kate Moss shade 107.}

This year was I was definitely not as impressed as I have been in previous years when it come to the Scare Zones. Honestly, I felt they lacked more actors, and they should have spread the Scare Zones throughout the park.  The Face Off scare zone was very interesting and intriguing it really is a really great photo opportunity area to take selfies,and photos with very unique creatures.

                                                             Read the disclaimer before you comment thanks! :) peace!

The Purge scare zone was really cool as far the main actor they had who was dressed in a business suit with a microphone basically inviting you in to the purge and talking to guest and creeping them out. This part was cool because it reminded me of the movie I just wish they had more scare actors in your face making you want to run the opposite ways. The voodoo scare zone was pretty vague, and nothing really scary just a little fog and nothing really worth screaming for.

                                                Classic Babes in line ready for the Walking Dead House <3

Meanwhile, the houses were the main aspect of where Universal used its budget at, as well as the costuming, special effect makeup, and other special effects to make them incredible well at least some of them. From worst to best out of the four houses I went to personally goes like this:

4.) Aliens .V.S. Predators

Pro’s: Awesome Costuming Effects on.

Con’s: Was not scary at all. No one screamed, no one jumped, it was so easy to walk through, annoying exit route having to bend under a little tunnel.

3.) Halloween Michael Myers

Pro’s: It was awesome so many Michael Myers popping out and a surprise ending I won’t ruin,

Con’s: The line of 105 minutes was not worth it honestly though.

2.) From Dusk Till Dawn 

Pro’s: Keeps you jumping and on your toes and very close to the TV version of the show.

Con’s: I wish it would have been a longer walk through or bigger house for this.

1.) Walking Dead: Prison

Pro’s: So amazing from the moment you walk in and out of it. Definitely messes with your head which makes you more vulnerable to the unexpected scare actors, and the makeup effects were pretty darn scary. Walkers everywhere so beware! Definitely the best Walking Dead house so far in HHN.

Con’s: The flashing lights blinded the f*ck out of me and I almost ended up in a cage full of walkers.

The Housed I missed were: Roanoke – Cannibal Colony, Giggles & Gore Inc, Dollhouse of the Damned, and Dracula Untold- Reign of Blood.  :(

Now from my friends point of view who have attended the other four houses they have loved the clown house, and the doll house even better. They say those were pretty scary because the make up effects, and costuming were quite horrifying and they kept popping everywhere. These two houses the time I went had the less wait time so I would say if you want to make two houses that are really quick in time these would be it. I advise that you do Halloween, and Walking Dead first because the wait time are so ridiculous from 105 minutes and up. Obviously the Rocky Horror Picture Show was great, and Bill and Ted’s Experience was not as fun as other years it lacked material, it was only funny because of Nicki Minaj, and Disney’s Frozen as well as their magic band, and the rest was just kind of pushed in your face to make you laugh and it really wasn’t even funny. But the actors were good so I give them that.  If you do go to either HHN24 in Hollywood or Universal Orlando I want to hear from you. I want to know which were you favorite houses, and scare zones. And what did you like least?

Love,

E <3

A night with Alex & Sierra

Alex and Sierra are an American pop duo made up by Alex Kinsey and Sierra Deaton  who are a young couple both from Florida. They won the final season of The X Factor USA and were mentored by the one and only Mr. Simon Cowell who was in charge of the groups. Their debut album will be releasing October 7th, 2014 on Itunes if you do the pre-order right now its only $9.99 guys!  The couple both attended the University of Central Florida and came back here to promote their brand new music with Orlando’s Best Mix station MIX 105.1 FM who held a contest for their ALL ACCESS LOUNGE. Basically they choose a handful of winners and they get VIP Access to a 30 minute music performance, Q&A, and finally Meet & Greet opportunities. Because I am always in the mix I submitted my information and while I was in Texas I got a called I won and I got to go.  This was held in the beautiful Aloft Hotels in Downtown Orlando by MIX 105.1 FM and I got my meet and greet band and enjoy the show.

When they first came in everyone was kind of stunned and applauded. Right off the bat they introduced themselves and started playing their new exclusive songs from their album as well as covers. They answered questions about the show, and what their plans are while they are in town. Afterwards were the awesome meet and greets were basically it was the best thing ever. Since it was a lounge and a couple of people we actually got time to go by pairs or one by one and after taking a professional pic from the staff you could actually talk to them a for a minute or two and then move on.

The quickest interview I go to do was to ask them at least three questions:

They give the biggest most humble hugs let’s make that clear I loved it.

1.) Me: “Who would be your wildest collaboration to work with?”

Alex: “Paul McCartney without a doubt.”

Sierra: “Really? Oh Yeah Paul McCartney yes that would be great”.

2.) Me:What about Adele? Would you want to record a song with Adele since you have similar sounds in acoustics?

Alex: “Oh My God Yes!

Sierra: “Are you kidding of course that would be amazing.

3.) Me: “So would you mind us three taking a selfie for the blog?”

Alex:No way! Let’s do it!”

Me: “So I’m short I’ll go in the middle. Do you want to take it?”

Alex: “For sure! I got it I’m going to show you a trick.”

Sierra: “He is great at taking selfies!”

All three of us pose crazy faces *Snap Snap*

All three of us look at the camera  and say NICE! 

Alex: “Glad you could make it it was great meeting you!”

Sierra: “Thank you for everything!”

Me: Thank you meeting you both is as awesome as our selfie!

Alex and Sierra closed in on another big hug, signed an autograph, and on to the next person and after everyone was done they escorted them out. They are so great live! I really love their music because their voices harmonize so well together. I cannot wait for their debut “Its About Us” to be released who have been working with top names in the industry like Julian Bunetta, Jason Mraz, Harry Styles, and John Legend.  Their debut single “Scarecrow” its one of my favorite songs  but the one that I think will make charts and everyone new favorite will be the song that this album is named after  “Its About Us” because its a ballad with amazing lyrics for those romantics out there.

If you like, love, hated but still love, and want more hit that like and share buttons ;)

Love,

E <3

Life Update #2

“Life is beautiful and there is so much to be grateful about even on the stormy days” – Evetzie B.

Here is my life update Numero dos. It has been quite a while since I have written another  personal life update which means a lot of months has passed by. I love to share with you my crazy stories from the entertainment world, personal point of views, industry, pop culture, celebrities, concerts but rarely did I share personal stories until recently.

The reason why because I like to keep certain things in my life private. But honestly its not the first time that I have opened up to topics that are closed to my heart. Like for example I suffered from depression from a lot of things that caused it growing up. I have been way better after years of battling with it.  But I honestly feel like when you are passionate in life about something it can literally be of therapy and a source of inspiration to see the better things in life.

For me God, my blog, and music has been the reasons of why I can open myself up to talk with others who have had or are suffering from depression, eating disorders, and so on. I feel like when I share my story with others not only do they learn something new but I learn something new, and it feels almost like family.  There are so many young girls out there who I have recently talked with and they are so lost, confused, and so hard on themselves because of things that either we can or cannot change. It hurts to hear or see their suffering and I just wish they could know how beautiful and worthy they are. I am not writing this because of pity but because I want you to know that this is not the end there are better things ahead and if you would just believe that with all your heart and mind you could see and feel it too.

A couple months ago I found myself lost and it had been building up for years. Meanwhile, in people’s eyes I looked like the happiest girl in the world and truth is I was not. I was happy and grateful for some things but people didn’t know the hell I was battling with inside. It wasn’t until I really hit rock bottom emotionally that I really asked myself and to God what is my purpose in life? No I am not talking about anything drastic but I found myself pondering what was it? I really prayed and ask God to really point me to the right direction because my faith was completely lost.  Thankfully after a good girl’s trip to NYC when I came back it finally hit me that I had to follow my passion or it was going to be it. So after considering things I finally went for what my passion for music and entertainment was in the entertainment and broadcasting industry.

Months later, life threw an extreme curveballs but I refused to let myself sink. Being human at the end of the day you kind of lose yourself in the negatives but once you learn how to control your thoughts and let the positive vibes kick in there is nothing that can bring you down. I have learned to ask God for patience, understanding, faith, peace, and knowledge everyday. I am not perfect and I will never be but I am learning everyday something new and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities and blessings that will lie ahead. I am writing this not make myself sound good but because I do think we have to open up our mouths and share our stories little by little with others. You never know if your neighbor, friend, or someone else could be going through the same things as you, similar or worse. We need to learn to spread the love, and understand one another.

For now I can say I am happy with the way my life is going and even if some days things look grey I am grateful for the things that I had, have, experienced, and for the ones I hope come. My prayers is that you never put yourself down to raise other people standards. You are one of a kind for all the right reasons be yourself and when things get rough don’t give up.

Here are some of my favorite quotes, sayings, or lyrics that keep me happy:

  • “Do small things with great love” -unknown
  • “You don’t need a reason for doing everything in your life. Do it because you want to. Because it’s fun. Because it makes you happy”- unknown
  • “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I beleive that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tommorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles” – Audrey Hepburn
  • “A beautiful heart can bring things into your life that all the money in the world couldn’t obtain”- unknown
  • “Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves” Princess Diana
  • “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them” – Albert Einstein
  • ” I think you can have it all you just have to work really hard, because great things don’t come easily” – Katy Perry
  • “You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place” – Miriam Adeney

And the one I dear hold in my heart:

  • Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

If you feel like this was great sharing then please give it a like, comment, or share spread the love~ :)

Love Always,

Are You Game Day Ready? Let’s Get That Glam On!

Hello Fashionminies!

After working in business casual attire all week I finally got home to catch up with the scores of one of my favorites Baseball team the New York Yankees! To be honest I don’t understand much about sports but when it comes to Baseball, Basketball and Hockey I’m all for it. Football eh? But if you aren’t big baseball fans, that shouldn’t stop you from hitting up a sports bar with friends and watching the game and supporting the team of your choice. I know us ladies love to look our best no matter what as well as feeling comfortable and ready for those selfies. Being that I love going out with friends on my spare time we decided to watch the seven thirty game at a friend’s house and I came up with a few casual luxe outfit ideas of my own inspired by an MLB Hats I chose the NY Yankees hat that I found at Fanatics which by the way is the only the leading website for everything sports! They have everything you can imagine wrap your head around on it. So if your favorite teams fall in any of the College, NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, Nascar, Soccer, Olympics,or etc you definitely have to check them out.

Here is an image of my favorite is MLB NY Yankees Hat and these casual luxe outfits that you can mix and match.(To enlarge image click on it)

gamedayglam

The reason why I chose this hat is not only because its a Yankees hat but because it also has a sentimental value when I see it. My grandfather used to be the biggest NY Yankees Fan in the world. Growing up he was like my second dad and he would ask me to watch the games with him back in Puerto Rico. When my grandfather passed a few years ago every time I saw the Yankees logo it would remind me of a hat he had back in the day exactly like this one. And growing up I always stayed true to the Yankees so as soon as I saw this hat I knew that would be the hat that I would proudly wear at any baseball game. Meanwhile, what I love about the outfits I styled is that they are all comfortable and perfect for any woman no matter what shape or form. It allows to feel sexy without being over the top for that game day with your significant other, friends, family and so on. Who said sport fashion has to be boring? Let’s bring some sass to the table. Men you can also take this same hat and pair it with an amazing color scheme so you can give your lady a little competition. We are talking about sports so a little competition sounds fair here. Enjoy! xx

Love,
E <3

Concert Review: Blake Shelton – Ten Times Crazier Tour & Dan+Shay Experience.

BACK STORY: Surprising Mom!

10644019_697061297045064_23490904_n

Back in January my mother’s birthday came around and I really had no idea what to get her. She was driving me insane with how much she loves The Voice and how she could watch it a thousand times as long as they kept Blake Shelton on the panel. I, in the other hand agreed with her to watching all seasons as long as they kept my “boyfriend” Adam Levine. So as mother and daugther we have a tradition of watching The Voice now. Then one day I told her “Mom, I swear if Blake Shelton ever comes to a concert I will buy you Meet & Greet Passes just to see your reaction if you meet him” and laughed it off. Her on the other hand stared at me “Really? I don’t know how would I event start speaking to him”. But that’s when I realized that could always be a good idea for a gift. So as a totally amazing daugther right? I went online and search for Blake Shelton Tour Dates and I saw that Orlando was listed for his recent Ten Times Crazier Tour. The tickets were not on sale yet so I had to subscribe for the special pre-sale code. Three days later my mom tells me we are going out of town to visit family and that we were leaving at the same time and day as the tickets went on sale. I panicked and try to stall so I could purchase the tickets away from her. But we had to leave and I had no access to the internet so I tried downloading the Livenation/ Ticketmaster app but it wasn’t working on my phone. So I emergency texted my two older cousins so they could buy the pair of tickets but they were unavailable. I freaked out and while my mother was driving I was trying to keep it together while watching the tickets slowly being taken away from my hold. Finally by a miracle I get enough WiFi to score the tickets but it was too late for the Meet & Greet Packages. But thankfully I got us close enough and the results on August 30th, 2014 were totally worth it. Because I had the chance to repay my mother a little bit back for all the things she has done for the both of us. Yeah sounds cliche but there was no better feeling than seeing her get all emotional and excited like a total fan girl when she found out I got her tickets to see her favorite country singer and man Blake Shelton. She even teared up. THE FEELS!

CONCERT TIME:

Held on August 30th, 2014 at the Amway Centre in Orlando, Florida.

Opening Acts: Neal McCoy,Dan & Shay, and The Band Perry.

shelton1.jpg

Neal McCoy was the Host & Entertainer from beginning, middle, and end of the show. He knew how to keep everyone entertained as he performed various songs with his band as well as paying tribute to Michael Jackson. He was very funny and a pleasure to listen to. 

Dan and Shay is Nashville’s new duo Dan + Shay (consisting of Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney) who took the stage and rocked out to songs off of their album “Where It All Began”. Their original sound of a mix between rock/pop and country. Its like Rascal Flatts ,One Republic, and Usher meets Lady Antebellum. They are very talented they sound so amazing and flawless live its like listening to their album with more adrenaline and passion. I definitely see a bright future ahead full of more albums and success for this group.  Some of my favorite songs that they performed are “Stop, Drop,& Roll”, “Show You Off”, and “I Heard Goodbye”. They are both very handsome and their voices are perfectly arranged in pitch, harmony, and eloquently with their lyrics.

10643863_1478645852388994_1127568616_n

After their performance I got a Meet & Greet Bracelet to meet Dan+Shay after the concert ended. I ran up the stairs from were my seats where across the arena and did a line and I made it just in time before they started closing the line up even IF you had your meet & greet pass (which sucked for some fans). They definitely didn’t expect that many fans at their Meet & Greet. I befriended the couple in front of me and made small talk and all of the sudden I saw Dan and I was like “Oh Crap I am going to forget my name” and the lady just laughed at me and said “Oh honey I’ll be right at the exit in case you faint to help you”. I definitely didn’t think I was that nervous but I gathered myself up and when it was my turn I handed my camera to their assistant. Dan said “Hi how are you? Thanks for getting our album” as I handed him my album for him to autograph. I told him my name and somehow I just blurted out “Of course you guys are very talented, and you’re BEAUTIFUL”. As soon as I said it and realized what I just had said I think my face was pretty much flushed red. -_- … like seriously? But Dan was a real sweetheart and in nano seconds was like “No, YOU’RE Beautiful” and smiled and I was like Eeeppp! Total Fan girl Moment right there! So i smiled said thank you and as Shay signed my CD he places it on the table next to him and then surprises himself and says “Oh Wow you really are” and I’m like what just happened?. So I smile trying to get myself together in between these two and ended up in this awesome photo:

 

Meeting the wonderful Dan + Shay after the concert.

The Band Perry needs no introduction they are one of the most successful bands in Country Music. For those who don’t know much about country music let me give you a quick glance. The Band Perry is a group composed of three siblings Kimberly Perry, Reid Perry, and Neil Perry. They all have vocals and play all kinds of instruments. They released their first self titled album back in October of 2010. Their second album Pioneer was released three years in April 2013 with their number one song “If I Die Young”. The song reached number one on the U.S Billboard Hot Country songs, Hot Adult Contemporary charts, and has been certified quadruple platinum! Some of their top hit songs from their second album also include “Better Dig Two”, “Done”, “Chainsaw”, and “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely”. All of these songs were performed that night and it was incredible. I had never had the chance to see them live and I am so glad I did. They are very humble and they definitely know how to own that stage and keep the crowd wanting more. They graphics in the backdrop screens had really cool lyrics, images of sparrows, and the bands initials “TBP” displaying while they sang different songs.

Blake Shelton: The Man Of The Hour!

So by this point as soon as the Blake came out being revealed on the stage as the curtains rise up my mom literally freaked. And that was the best thing ever! See the pic below:

BeFunky_IMG_1919.jpg

blake.jpg

He literally emerged from the top  of a short stairway and performed “All About Tonight”. He is so tall, so handsome, and so humble. He loves to talk a lot and i mean A LOT! But that made the crowd cheer even more and a true connection. He would stop mid sentence and thank everyone for showing up and showing him support. He even made a Twitter joke which was quite funny about how people from the industry thought no one was going to show up but guess what? Orlando represented country music and the love for Blake to a topnotch. One of my favorite songs of course was ‘Kiss My Country Ass”, “Neon Light”, “Footloose”, “Mine Would Be You”, “Boys Round Here”, and the one that broke my heart “Over You”. A song he wrote along with his wife Miranda Lambert after his brother passed away. This song is so emotional and seeing him perform it live left me speechless. Therefore he teared up because it so close to his heart. He also sang his own cover to  Michael Bublé’s “Home” into a lovely country ballad and the crowd made even more lovely when they all lit up the arena with their cellphones.

10624527_663084993787337_1806010033_n

And of course he sang a couple of more upbeat songs before the concert ended. Bottom line all performers were great, very talented, very upbeat, fun, and definitely not my last country concert!! So if you liked this post please give it a LIKE! <3 thanks for reading!

Love,

Love Always,

21 Uncommon Romantic Gestures That Would Make Any Girl Melt

whatevetziesays:

Here are some really nice tips gentlemen that you could do for your significant other…

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. Play with her hair while the two of you are watching TV. It doesn’t have to be complex, just a little light head touching/hair-messing-with will put her into a near-meditative state.

2. Get your dessert to-go at the restaurant so the two of you can eat it at home while watching a movie/your favorite TV show.

3. Instead of just asking her where she wants to go for dinner — because you know that she loves when you put in the effort to choose, but is really picky when it comes to what she wants — give her three options that you want to go to (including one or two you haven’t tried before, if possible). It’s the best of both worlds.

4. If you spend the night at her place (or even if you share the place) make the bed while she’s in the shower or getting ready.

Its just “Depression” right? – Educate yourself please.

Hi guys so today I decided to really just write this post on something that its more on a personal point and not so much on fashion or music, though it is related to one of the most recent and latest entertainment news on the loss of Robin Williams. This post is about raising awareness and understanding an illness like depression and how it could lead to serious choices. These type of things I really don’t like really talking about often but I think that is the same reason why it keeps happening. Because people keep ignoring depression and mental illnesses and passing along the lines of being dramatic, crazy, you don’t what you’re talking about. But it really is way more than that its not a lifestyle that you choose its something that really does affect you emotionally, physically, and that is when things get real and scary. I think society is definitely a big influence on these type of things too but I’ll get into that later as we go on.

depression

As most of you should know by now it is believed that Williams’s death was because he apparently committed suicide following from a severe depression. I am not here to judge anyone’s choices or what they do with their life but it is so sad to see someone so beautiful, kind, talented, and joyful go in such a horrible way because of an illness that is so cruel to many.  We have seen a lot of Hollywood stars sadly commit suicide in many different ways, we have also heard of those who also struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders, depression, and mental illnesses. From Heath Ledger, Amy Winehouse, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and so many more. But is not only celebrities that are the ones struggling but also people like you and i, individuals who live in the same neighborhood as you or in your school, church, at work, and so on.

I am so saddened to see so many people pointing fingers, judging, and commenting on how weak could that person be, or even bullying them after they are gone rather than trying to understand if this could have been prevented. I really don’t understand how many people are out there who still think that depression, mental illnesses, suicide, or any other disorders are a game. This is serious and the first way to prevent more of these tragedies are by trying to understand one another, with love, compassion, communication, and helping them out.

Did you know that 1 in 4 people suffer some sort of mental health problem.

Emptiness-depression-33252846-479-494

Stop judging why someone is the way they are, the way they dressed, talk, look, appearance, or what they have or don’t have. You don’t know their story and everybody has one. So before you point fingers take a look at your own life. Not a lot of people are blessed to have half of the things you may have or etc so why not share the blessings that you do have with them. If you see someone down, angry, upset sometimes its good to give them their space but its also good to talk with them  or if you are the one feeling frustrated talk or write it out. When you hold things in it can really tear you apart even more. A good friend of mine told me draw, sing, compose, write, do whatever you want but let it out and its true. Use your talents or whatever makes you feel at peace like listening,or expressing it in music.

From a personal point I can definitely tell you that everyone at least once or twice in their lifetime they will go through a phase where they are depressed or think they have lost it all.  But you need to start counting your blessings and not your flaws. There are days you feel frustrated like you are losing your mind or sometimes everything you had planned don’t go right. But you have to let the down falls make you strong and pick yourself up.

I know its hard, I know its not easy and its the reason why I want people to understand that the people who go through an illness like this or have thoughts of taking their own lives they are not weak. It takes a really strong mind to say I want to end this I have no way out or even to think that those are the only choices left for them to have.They are not doing it for attention, or anything like that. If someone wanted to do it they would, no question asked. I am not encouraging any harm of actions at all. I am just saying its an illness that needs to be taken very seriously and before you comment or speak the words “selfish”, “weak”, “idiotic”, “dramatic” or “waste of talent” think about what if you or a loved one was the one with such illness. How would you feel? How it would affect you? Your loved ones? Your dreams?

Though, I will never understand why would someone be so selfish and so low to even be a bully to someone even after they have committed such tragedy. It really just comes to show that really the weak one’s are the one who sit behind a computer screen commenting/criticizing instead of educating themselves and thinking how they could make a difference on someone else’s life that is slowly fading. I am not here to preach but i do hope that whoever is reading this whether you are the weak one’s (bullies), the soul who is seeking for an answer, or the families and friends who can’t understand or get any consolation to this illness to give yourself a chance to educate yourself, to understand, to give yourself a chance and somehow cope with a situation like this.

There is a purpose in this life for all of us, YOU are the light within the darkness. If you want to see a difference in your life take it one step at a time and BREATHE. Don’t let the struggles of life and the negativity take the strong, happy, extraordinary, beautiful, dreamer, talented individual YOU ARE. Life is made out of struggles and if life was easy it wouldn’t be called life. I know it sounds cliche but its so true. It may be a bad day but not a bad life. Please if you feel like your drowning in thoughts open your heart and seek the goodness in it, communicate with someone that will listen to you (God? Beliefs? Family Members? Friends? Psychologists?) the options are never ending. If you need prayer or if you feel like you need to talk to someone I’m here too because I have been there one way or another. I myself have dealt with depression maybe not at the same level as some of you but everyone does I promise. You are NOT alone!

And on a final note I would like to end with this I really think people should really think and educate themselves before they speak. People should never need to made feel worse for suffering from something that its beyond their control. And people should never make the families feel bad either for having someone go through it either. Because at the end of the day we are all humans, we all make mistakes, we all need chances to figure out who we really are, we all live, and breath the same way we need to love one another and support each other. :)
