I have always loved Sia, even before Titanium or Wild Ones, my sister who has exceptional taste in music has introduced me to her. Back in college, songs like Breathe Me and Numb, have been part of the songs in the soundtrack to my life. This is why I am quite happy that she is finally going mainstream and doing collaborations with famous artists because unlike some people, I believe talent, such as that of hers, deserves to be shared to the world. I think it's good she's getting mainstream and receiving all the attention like how she is now. She deserves to be renowned. Talent like that, I believes should be shared. I don't know why but most people get annoyed when Indie bands and their songs start playing on the radio because they think it will get to "pop," and I am certainly not that kind of person. Maybe I am more open and into sharing the good things. Selfishness was something I never really majored in.
Speaking of sharing, allow me to share why recently, I have come to share more of myself than ever... I have been blogging almost everyday and I guess it is probably because this is an outlet for release. It is refreshing to have someone read your thoughts. I have been staying in the hospital and when visitors have left and all I have left with me is white noise, my Private Duty Nurse and quick WiFi, a girl's got to make it work as I go along. I've been wearing more casual and laid back outfits recently as I don't think I need a ballgown, layers of tulle and diamonds to take care of someone who is sick. My outfit choices have been comfortable but granted I am who I am, I refuse to compromise the stylish part. That's just how I am. So, a studded knit sweater and red,white and blue ensemble is as casual and laid back I can get. (And, yes. I was in high heels the entire day) I have to say, writing and sharing my thoughts has been refreshing in so many levels. It's is almost therapeutic and at the end of the day, there is something so refreshing about letting it all out- having no secrets to keep and being open about oneself. The thing with me is there is no big gap between who I am in real life and who I am as the person writing these entries. A double life, masks and playing roles were never exactly part of my skills set so I am brutally honest, and perhaps as real as it gets. Granted, my lack of a filtration system gets me into the occasional "tiff" but what can I do? I refuse to sacrifice my integrity just to appease people. I don't think I can live with myself if I do that.
