The elemental came together for me this week pass, I have to say its been the most overwhelming week of this year as of yet. The way the i just saw everything unfold before my eyes was magical and in reality i could not have asked for a better life lesson then this.
Realizing the lessons of love and life, Understanding that i have people in my life that no matter what will come to me and show me support in all honestly it was overwhelming and beautiful. A very scary day that started with my travel to Pittsburgh for the court for my assault this pass January. As heavy as it was i saw my friends stand with me even do i was there alone and justice was served fairly, but to realize even do i sat there "alone" I was never alone and that made me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you to my family, fans and friends that stood by me this whole time. After all that i was scooped up by Macabre Noir she is my family hard core love her went to Most Wanted Fine Art and sat in a meeting for Penn Ave Eye Wear and Met THE PIN HEAD. *Epic
Then I headed home with a soaring heart being picked up by my roomy and celebrating.
Constantinople and I prepared this kick ass presentation to the street scape committee about out historical marker after 3 years of research and prep of a week we faced the board, Professionally drafted plans and a power point presentation went forth and i have to tell you my heart was pounding but we nailed that meeting. WE GOT THE GO! few more small details and off to the state! I have to say this made my day ecstatic and more then anything proud to stand a few steps with our dreams in the making. We celebrated and i have to say Constantinople is amazing and i love her very much !! THANK YOU for sticking with me!
The #CLE4WOMAN rally had come together with about 100 people and support from Nickie Antonio (amazing woman) and Mallory McMasters (Kick Butt Friend) not to mention the help of Vicci S from Basement Beauties and Anastasia coming down for pics- I have to say i was scared my first rally every went great even the TV showed up :) It was an absolute honor to stand for woman in ohio and make our voices be heard. The rally ended with a small march to tower city and then a very overdue lunch with anastasia were we talked and dined for a good while. I love that woman so much! **EPIC
Then, I joined the Basement Beauties for The Gateway Walk and Dine and worked registration. The event was a blast and oh man was it amazing as per usual. We went to enjoy the walk after our shifts and i got the pleasure to see some of my Cleveland that i never thought i would see. Skylines, Architecture and Great food!.. Meet amazing people :) The end of the night was ended in the old Cleveland trust company building where i just about died with the amazing rotunda and architectural details of murals and ceiling decor~ I was high with excitement!
Bella on tour, Headed to Summer-lesque in Pittsburgh, PA at Lava Lounge to perform with an amazing cast such as Miss Satine from ITALIA! Scarlet Letter from San Fran! Kat De Lac from Pitt! Smokin McQueen from Pitt! OMG from the point of leaving (thank you wifey for saving my ass) got to the bus just on time and when in Pittsburgh Smokin hosted me and cooked me a great lunch then set off to rest and get ready then head over to the show after a lovely convo with his roommate :)
The show was off the hook and saw old friends and made some new ones :) Thank you Pittsburgh! I LOVE YOU!
Getting home was a challenge but again made it back and it was a tender moment when i was asked "are you bella?" as always am like "yup" then came the most amazing words "Thank you for standing up for woman every where, HUG"!!! Holy god that was a moment!
When i got home i rested a bit before starting out to work a bit on all that needed done with the festival and other small things like catching up with mom and dad :) Even do there was 28 problems they were all solved slowly by 3am :) I missed my friends show over it and i hate i did but man oh man did i want to see texas plant-
Ale Fest by The Cleveland Scene- My roommate and i volunteered at the VIP area serving up some cold ale for peoples drinking pleasure! It was so much fun Thank you Jenna for letting us be a part of this :) I got to meet some fans of mine and man were they surprised to see me it was kinda funny but cool at the same time- The day went fast again made new friends and then we broke down and went home... my roomie and i rested then off for more work as per usual :)
Taste of Tremont- I was joined by Fantasie D'Light and Sonshine La Ray to pass out flyers :) MAN WAS IT GREAT! pictures and memories were made.. again bumping into Mr Frank Jackson always cool to shake his hand and take pics with him. The day went fast but man was it hot! Thank you for the girls for doing this with me :)
I got home and passed out and worked some more after i woke up in a costume- My sunburn got worse but will heal yayz!!
I hate to say this week was amazing and it was thanks to all to all of you I LOVE YOU!
I don't really know why am awake, Then again i would be lying if i said i did not really know... So much has happen in 5 months you would think i would be ok by now and everything would back to normal. I guess i could be thinking way to much about the last couple of months. But really how can i not... So many people lost to me and maybe am letting a lonely night get to me to much but i really don't know why right now my heart feels like a stack of bricks in my tummy. I miss home as in Mexico... Its time to travel back after loosing two people in a year its really time to just head down ... also this year... Nicole, Kiki and so many others just gone.. It seems so final to others but to me i know i will see them again. I really have been losing the living ... as in friends 2 in a short time.. I don't think i did anything wrong but then again knowing me... Court is coming up ... im a ball of nerves on that one.. Ugh... Thoughts.... thoughts... they dont leave me.. le sigh.
