I Wanna do Bad Things With You: Day 3

A picture of the cast of your favorite show

True Blood  
Never has a blood lust looked so appealing. Or vampires. This isn't weak twilight shit, HBO gives the green light and anything goes. I started watching it a few summers ago when a friend and I went on a DVD movie binge to fill our time. I was hooked after episode one. Damn cliff hangers.


Wild Flowers: Day 2

A picture of the person you've been closest with the longest

This is my best friend Caroline. We weren't friends the first year we knew each other because she though I was a bitch. So we've been best friends since 8th grade instead. We survived Junior High, High School, boyfriends, friends, family, golf, college, and everything in between. The title of the blog is called wild flowers because it's one of my favorite songs, and one day we were driving around town (hot summer day) and I told her I wanted to lay and run around in a field, possibly with flowers. To this day if I ever mention I'm bored she suggests I go do that. 

In high school her mom gave me a key to their house because we got tired of climbing through her bedroom window when she would forget her key. It was a zebra key (which I still have). Awesome. 
I love this girl more than life, I know she will always be there for me and me for her. She's like a sister. We're not mushy with each other so I will say no more, and I don't want to make her boyfriend look bad and make him think he needs to show me up. 

Oh yeah, don't mess with this girl. She will hurt you.

1. This picture was taken of me when I was 19. It was a hot summer day and I decided to drive with the top down (I have a convertible) and I came home and took this picture. For those of you who only know me as Kendra with the short red hair, this is my natural, curly brown/black hair. I've always liked this picture because I think I look crazy. 
2. The first car I ever wanted was a convertible Ford Mustang, then I moved on to a Jeep Wrangler. When my mom said no to that I decided I wanted a VW Cabrio. Why all the convertibles? Because the wind on my face and the breeze in my hair gives me the same feeling as lying in a bed with cold sheets on a hot summers day. 
3. I have five tattoos and ten piercings... in counting. 
4. My track record with electronics is terrible. I've gone through 20+ cell phones 3 cameras and 5 iPods.
5. When I was 5 I told my mom I wanted to be a ballerina when I grew up. 2 weeks later I was enrolled in dance. I had 15 amazing years in the dance world, I still find myself dancing all the time. I don't know how my parents afforded to put me through classes, but I love them everyday for it. Thanks mom and dad, I was able to dance the dream for 15 years because you believed in me and gave me everything you could. 
6. One of my favorite things to do when I was little was slide down the stairs(then there was carpet on the stairs) with my sister on cardboard.
7. In cosmetology school i took a leave of absence for medical reasons. My first day back I almost quit because I was so overwhelmed. Looking back I'm glad I didn't, I never thought I'd find a career in it. 
8. My favortie advice from a client: 
"I don't get hook-ups or one night stands. If you met a random guy at a club or bar you wouldn't let him stick his finger in your mouth, would you? So why would you let his stick his dick in your vagina?"
This is why I love my job, I meet the most colorful people. 
9. I wish that music played during the epic and important moments of my life. I could only imagine how much more interesting that would be. 
10. When I was little I learned two important lessons at once. Sharing and patience. My sister wouldn't share a toy with me that played music AND she also wouldn't dance with me. So I jumped on her back and she fell into an end table. The next day she had to have butterfly stitches above her eye. Lesson learned (thanks aunty rocky for helping me with that one)
11. Im really into music and quotes... If you didn't get that already.
12. I really love Harry Potter. I can put on the DVD at night and instantly fall asleep or watch it when I have free time. Im still secretly waiting for my letter from Hogwarts too... Just sayin. 
13. Since I'm really into music, in 2010 I went to 15 concerts. Im wondering if anyone can name the artists from which all my quotes and blog titles come from. Without google. 
14. I grew up in the same house and lived in it for almost 21 years. When my parents thought about selling and moving into a new development, I told them no. I was going to buy the house when I was older and had lots of money. I still stand by that. 
15. I never rememeber my dreams, and when I do I don't sleep well. Expect for the one with Johnny Depp and David Grohl :)


Communication Breakdown

My first blog. I didn't want my blog to be cliche or cheesy, or just me ranting about my random life. I was inspired by a friend of mine who is brilliant with her words and always puts a smile on my face with her stories. I thought if I could instill some inspiration and creativity in someone too, well that would be awesome.

So I invite you to read tidbits of my life, lessons learned, and life lived :)
