I need inspiration, So much aggravation. I want a vacation, For some relaxation. This is not an accusation, It is just an acclaimation. There’s so much irritation, In this generation. I’d like more compensation, Do you need more explaination? Should I draw an illustration? Should we have a conversation? I have no complication, And this is not a cancellation, It’s just a confirmation In my imagination. I’m running out of words with “ation”, I have reached my limitation. I just found my motivation, And that’s my observation (exclaimation[point])!
If you have a heart, you will take the time to read this. Re-post or re-word but by all means, PLEASE SHARE.
Thirty minutes before we were about to close up at my weekend job (ETC Consignment Shop), a man walked in. He was dirty and carried an old backpack. Like your average jackass American, I immediately judged. He slowly walked up to me and quietly asked “Do you have any socks?” My heart sank deep into my stomach as I retrieved the only pair we had (red fuzzy women’s socks). I handed them to the man and he said “Can I please clean your parking lot for these?” The knot in my stomach grew bigger. Needless to say I told the gentleman that I would purchase the socks for him and tears filled his eyes as he thanked me and walked out. I felt good about it but then felt sick when I thought about how long he had gone with freezing feet before he asked for help. That man is one of MANY less fortunate human beings in our society. Did he drink water that day? Did he have dinner that night? They are out there. All over. The hungry and the needy NEED US.
One day last summer I purchased 20 cheeseburgers, packs of crackers, granola bars and capri suns. I walked around downtown Asheville and handed it all out while I spoke with the homeless. It was honestly one of the best days of my life and I have never seen so many appreciative people. I wish everyone could and would experience that.
What about those beggers on the streets? We have all used the line “I only have my credit card.” NO YOU DON’T. Are you really going to miss the 75 cents floating around in your pocket or purse? I promise that someone else needs it more than you do.
And how about those men who stand at red lights with a sign that says HUNGRY, ANYTHING HELPS? You most likely dread pulling up beside him. You say “Kids make sure your doors are locked… don’t make eye contact.” You are just certain that he would take your dollar and buy beer with it…. so you refuse to help. Even if he were begging for money to buy beer with, why is that so wrong? For him to be in that situation is terrible on it’s own. So sad. The way I see it, it’s up to you whether or not you help him….. it’s up to him what he does with your help.
With all that being said, I hope at least one of you understands how serious this is. I hope at least one of you will stop being so judgemental. I hope at least one of you will realize that you can help, want to help, and will help. Whether you give food, money, prayer, a smile or…. socks, know that your gesture is appreciated. God Bless. -Rikki Walker
Now I know hands down that I’m probably the worst driver in the world, but as I was driving to work this morning I found myself critiquing how others were driving… and it pissed me off a little. The stupidity of people amazes me. Just because there is cop behind you DOES NOT mean you have to sit at the stop sign for 57 seconds. I got a piece of gum, put lip gloss on and listened to half of a crappy Bruno Mars song while you looked left and right over and over and over. You just wasted 57 seconds of my life and everyone else’s life who had to wait behind you. Sucks for you that the cop pulled you over anyway… You forgot to put your turn signal on, dipstick. (That part didn’t really happen, but it would have made it more interesting.) By the way, 16 year old who pulled RIGHT OUT IN FRONT OF ME, I have the right to yell at you, honk my horn at you and flip you off- don’t throw your hand up at me like I’m the one who did something wrong. Another thing… and this is to the young man who looked like a shih tzu dog, you had plenty of opportunities to make that turn. Grow some balls next time. Also, mom of the year award goes to the mother who made her 8 year old kid sit and the back seat and let her dog ride shot gun. Bravo. Like I said people, I know that I’m a bad driver and I don’t deny it- but I can learn to drive better… in the words of Wes McCurry “You can’t fix stupid.”
Make sure the fortune that you seek is the fortune that you need.
Tell me why the first to ask is the last to give every time.
What you say and do not mean follows you close behind.

Girl you’z too sweet! Thank you so much!
Allow me to go ahead and tell you all how I feel…
“You’re eyes are the sweetest stars I’ve ever seen.”
“You are what I never knew I always wanted.”
“You’ll always know when the right person walks into your life.”
“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me.. everyday.”
“On the days I can’t see your eyes, I don’t even want to open mine. On the days I can’t see your smile, well I’d rather sit… wait the while. For the days I know you’ll be near. ‘Cause a day without you just isn’t fair.”
“You make me nervous; I guess that makes you different from all the rest.”
Everyone.. I’m happy right now. So freaking happy!!! My life is on a steady incline and I’m so very satisfied. For those of you who are happy for me, thank you times a million! And for those of you who aren’t, well.. fuck you!
P.S.. This is random, but I’m getting this tattoo tomorrow!!!!!!
Alright… so I officially SUCK at updating this thing. I’ve definitely not been living up to my own expectations. But I’ve been busy lately to say the very least. I’m hoping to be moved in to my new place in about a week and a half (fingers crossed.) All of my clothes, shoes, furniture and everydamnthing else are in boxes and trash bags in my moms house and sisters basement. Man… I feel cool. Aside from getting things ready for my new apartment, I’ve been busy with a few other things that seem to have taken over my every thought! I’m not complaining though… not one bit. My life is great right now. I’m extremely happy! Be happy for me? :) I’d appreciate that.
I’m going out tomorrow night with the most beautiful girls in the world for Brooklyn Hope Hill’s birthday. “It’s about to be a real good time”- say that in your most southern accent… then laugh. We’re going to eat at P.F. Changs then going downtown to a few bars then to Scandals. Who knows, maybe I’ll find a straight drag queen there. ;) I’m really glad the tripod is back together. Brooklyn, Haley and myself! I’ve missed it. I’ve missed girl time.
I’m getting a tattoo in February most likely! It’s not going to be my first, but it will be my first “professional” one. haha! I’m getting “When you have faith anything is possible” along my spine. It’s going to be pretty freaking awesome. I’m stoked about it.
Geeze, I’m shaking really bad right now and I’m not even cold. Jofiewancowan.
Now that that’s out of my system, let my just say that I’m ready for my burn scars to go away. I hate them. They are some pretty beastly battle wound scars though. Last Saturday I modeled for a fashion event at Hotel Indigo. It was the first thing I have done that has to do with modeling since I got burned. I have a photo shoot this Sunday with Ruslan Tumash and I’m actually a little nervous about it. I’ve not posed in front of a camera in months now. I’m ready for my comeback though. :)
Well I think I’ll stop now. I’m sorry if you actually took the time to read this random, boring blog. If you did get this far though, go ahead and pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for pretty much having no life. Who am I to talk though? I just wrote a REALLY long pointless blog at 11:30 on a Friday night. Haha! Then I laughed at myself. Wow. Okay, I need to be done. Have a good night all of you beautiful people. Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?
Hatch Fashion Event at Hotel Indigo
I just had to put this one on here! Haha. Nick’s birthday at Scandals last Friday!
GIRL!!! You are beautiful enough!!! I love you, sweet cheeks! Haha.
