Gothic Minimalism Part 1

Once day in life I plan to own a house or loft or whatever. I know it may be a long time coming but I still day dream about its appearance often! The look I want to go for is what I call "Gothic Minimalism". The combination of the two things I love most. Here is some inspirations for such a place!

Umi Says

Tomorrow may never come
For you or me
Life is not promised
Tomorrow may never show up
For you and me
This life is not promised

I ain't no perfect man
I'm trying to do, the best that I can,
With what it is I have
I ain't no perfect man
I'm trying to do, the best that I can,
With what it is I have

Put my heart and soul into this song 
I hope you feel me
From where I am, to wherever you are
I mean that sincerely
Tomorrow may never come
For and me
Life is not promised
Tomorrow may never appear
You better hold this very moment very close to you 
Very close to you 
So close to you, So- close to you (your moment in history is right now!)
Don't be afraid, to let it shine

Sometimes I get discouraged
I look around and, things are so weak
People are so weak
Sometimes I feel like crying
Sometimes my heart gets heavy
Sometimes I just want to leave and fly away (fly fly fly, like a dove)
Sometimes I don't know what to do with myself 
Passion takes over me
I feel like a man
Going insane
Losing my brain
Trying to maintain
Doing my thing
Put my heart and soul into this y'all
I hope you feel me
Where I am, to wherever you are

Gotta have what,
Gotta have that love
Peace and understanding
One God, one light
One man, one voice, one mic

My X-Mas Wishlist

I usually don't ask for anything for Christmas and I am still won't. I don't expect/want anything but I sure like to think about it.

1.A Gold Heart Ring

I don't have much gold. Why? Because its harder to find things you like in gold, but silver is everywhere.

2. $25 iTunes Card

I am addicted to my iPhone. I thought Blackberry was bad, but dear god RIM has nothing on this obsession.The apps are ridiculous,helpful,addicting but all are not free! I need to to quench my urges for Street Fighter IV,Sonic and Tetris.

3.a Pandora/Charm Bracelet

It doesn't really have to be Pandora because I know where to get the same charms that aren't $20-500 A PIECE! I want to start one and add all the charms valid to my life/likes.

4.Vampire Diaries season 1 & 2

They were/still are on sale at Walmart.com but SOLD OUT. I went to Walmart at 9pm on Thanksgiving to get them instead. After people knocked over the DVD stand and were crawling all over each other for DVDs I just couldn't do it...

Dreams of a Life

Dreams of a Life Trailer from Dogwoof Documentary on Vimeo.

Joyce Vincent was 41 when she was found dead in her home, but she was 38 when she died. For three years, from 2003-2006, her body lay surrounded by Christmas gifts she was planning to wrap; the television still on. How does this happen? Especially to a woman who was social, who two-years prior had a high-powered job at Ernst and Young, who had rubbed elbows with celebrities, and who wanted to get married? That’s what Carol Morley set to find out. But her new documentary film, “Dreams of a Life,” is about more than just Joyce Vincent, a young, beautiful London woman whose parents were from the Caribbean and who no one seemed to miss when she was gone. It’s about life, death, and loneliness.”

This is why I love the U.K..I feel like if this was America no one may have cared enough to make this documentary about her.. unless she looked differently....Can't wait to see it.
