Shade


      As a nanny I don't always have enough cash for the crane game or vending machine. Like I have the past year, I tell Lil Micaela "Money doesn't grow on trees Lil Micaela, but it would be the perfect place for shade".

      After hearing it a million times, she finally responded....



      "You see that tree over there big Micaela? That's a money tree".

      Well...where's the money?

      "Everybody took it all"
     
     So why didn't it grow back money? The leaves are like any other tree.

      "The leaves were all gone. So the trees decided to grow back regular. Now it's normal and nobody bothers it. And now that tree is the perfect place for shade".

Aerial series 2


No, I didn't die doing aerial.
In fact, more progress made!
(Pictures vary throughout series 1)
Start series 2 today.
Withdrawn for about 2-3 weeks.

Before series 2 started, I managed to fall 4 times.

Silks are fun, drops are the shit.
Gotta love the facial expressions...




But there's something about trapeeze...
That I admire 









Whelp. Found my happy place.
Where's yours?

Flying


Hula hooping impresses people. Something self taught.
Anybody can do it. 

I don't want to impress, I want to astonish.

A circus art that takes training and hard work. So I decided to fly...

Aerial arts day 1



Aerial arts day 4



Every class has an hour on silks, and an hour on trapeeze. 

My first day started with silks. By the time I got to trapeeze my hands and forearms were super cramped.
So I stayed strong and gave it my all.
Swinging off the trapeeze my forearms and hands gave out. Followed by a nice faceplant.
Thank you gymnastics mat for saving me.

See it to believe it

     While at a local bounce house with Lil Micaela, I refused to come in the ones only for toddlers. 
Told her the rules stated "No Big Micaela's allowed".



      She didn't believe me. 
So she came out, and read the rules herself.

Always wanna grow up




It's not until we've actually grown up that we realize Peter Pan wasn't talking shit...

Bright lights

      The past week I've been keeping my eyes on a particular star in the sky. Bright enough to see clearly through the city lights. Was told I've actually been starring at a sun from a different planet...


      If that's the case, I've been wishing on one hell of a star.

The 'ole crane game

     

 Summer 2001, family friend vacationing. More than likely visiting Cedar Pointe. A mini arcade included in the corner of our hotel's lobby. The crane game caught our attention (my buddy and I, shown above). The crane game was our shit. Of course we won. Then it gyped us. The crane pulled a "drop right in front of drop box" bullshit.

      This was unacceptable.

      Verified our arms and hands couldn't reach, even with anything as a prop (which usually worked for us). So we shook it. I don't even remember if we got our prize, because red alarms everywhere started going off. They had to evacuate the hotel.


      All for a shit quality plush toy. 
      Kids...

The snapchat epidemic

      I'm a tad out of date with the whole snapchat thing. Bitches be wearing cartoon flowers in there hair. Every Facebook profile pic.
      Seriously, go check
So long duck face, hello animated accessories.

Here's my experience


The infamous flower hair
Aside my lil cuz, who ranked #1 in choir! 

I now rep the unrealistic cute deer


My friend and I did an interesting experiment...

We swapped faces.
WHAAA!? 
I look incredibly real...

Can't lie, I'm impressed.

Love vs fear

      Is it better to be loved or feared?
"That's a good question. It's great to be both, but it's very difficult. But if I had my choice, I would rather be feared. Fear lasts longer than love."
- Sonny



      They protect you.
      Farmers give you complimentary produce, fresh off the money trees.
      They give a hand when needed.
      A shoulder to cry on.
      A place to call home.
      They support your decisions.
      They laugh at your jokes.
      They listen to your rants.
      They stand by your side.

      They feel obligated to do these things.
Because they fear the outcome of not doing so.
      Or maybe they sincerely want to do these things.
      Because they love you.
      If I had my choice, I'd rather be loved.
