I had the best birthday ever. Compliments of my awesome family, friends, work buddies, and coolest people alive. I seriously feel soooo lucky. It was one of the best 24 hours I have ever experienced haha. Thank you muchos. muchos. beacoup.
Also, I've been more involved with launching our jewelry business Musana Jewelry. It's been incredible to see it actually go from being a small desire to becoming an actual business. I was just reading some of the notes I took back in Uganda on some of the last days we were there. We interviewed a few women who we knew would be really good candidates to be a part of our business. Most of them widows, with seriously crazy life stories. We had our friend interpret for us while we asked them questions in their own huts/homes about their lives. Then we took pictures, and I mostly liked playing with their children. I still have some of their drawings in my notebook, I gave them pens while they sat there patiently waiting while their mothers talked. Man, I miss that place. But I'm really glad I get to give back even while being here in the States. One pair of earrings sold will bring a whole new kind of life for each of these women. AHHH I'M SO EXCITED FOR THEM!!!!!!!!! Anyways, I'll be working on the website a lot these next few days. I'm learning a lot about building businesses. Kristen is so amazing, if there's one person I'd want to be involved in a business with, it would be her. She's so competent and can make anything happen.
Also, Topher my brotha's birthday is today...2 days after mine. I made him this video, partially because I love the man, and partially because I was on a low budget. And I'm straight up delighted with how it turned out. Here's to you, TOPHER, honestly I'm so honored to even know this boy, let alone have him as a brother. LOVE YOU!!!!!!!

Things I am incredibly excited about:

1. The Michael Jackson showcase on Friday for Club Style! I'm still working on the moves, I love our dance. These kids can dance like black folks, in this case, like Michael Jackson.
2. My hammock. My amazing Russians, Olga and Dasha, are letting me hang it from their balcony upstairs. I've been chilling at their place lately. I cut Olga's hair, talked with her family via Skype, her little russian nephew taught me how to count to ten, watched a movie, and had a tea sesh. I absolutely adore them. So very very much.
3. My birthday is next Friday. I'll be 20, and I feel great about that. One more year and I can go clubbing anywhere I want.
4. Potential second job. Maddie, one of my lovely roommates, is helping me get a job at her work place.
5. Mail. I've been getting some sweet packages. Little Blair, my brotha's, my mum, anonymous brownies? Thank you. Mail is one of the best things in this world. Speaking of brotha's: Parker is turning into a man...and it's hilarious. I guess I should not be thrown off by that fact, but in all honestly it's throwing me hard. Every time I talk to that boy on the phone his voice is a little deeper and I'm positive his hand's wing span interferes with him gripping the increasingly smaller cell phone.
6. I'm composing a song on the piano. It's about time I work on this. Sometimes I pretend Beethoven and I were friends in the preexistence.
7. My friend Cynthia is going to take a 'family portrait' for my roomies and I with her beautiful Canon 35mm and it's going to look a little something like this:

Michael Jackson - Black or White (Vs. Afrojack & Martin Solveig - John Marr Hello Edit)

David Guetta is the bomb.

I'm devoting my life to FUN this next week. I know it's been FUN lately but I'm going to make it a priority to party every night. That's what college life is about, especially when you don't have the college to worry about, only the life part to fulfill.
Tonight's my last chill night I've decided. It's when everyone else is celebrating Valentine's day. So I'm sending Valentine's CD's that have nothing to do with love but everything to do with having fun. Hence track 1: Sexy Chick by David Guetta; track 2: I Can Transform Ya by Chris Brown..and so on and so on.
Other goals for the week: I'm going to submit an article into Salt Lake's underground magazine called SLUG MAGAZINE. I love it, music scene is 50 % of the articles and the other 50 % is made up of skateboarding, snowboarding, clubs, bars, and vegetarian joints. Like I said, awesome.

Sometimes things are sooo good you can't imagine life any better, then the next day life can completely suck. Today sucks to say the least.
I can't wait to escape into my dreams when I fall asleep tonight.
