#MusicMonday: Anjulie - "Rain"

Anjulie - "Rain"
Sometimes I just like to chill out to this song. 

is a Canadian "pop" singer/songwriter from Guyana of Indian descent
now working on here sophomore album 
after several hits off of her '09 debut album 'Anjulie.'

But back to the song...
 We all know this feeling of
"wanting to get back with an ex 
but knowing better and knowing you shouldn't
so you're then tortured and left thinking to yourself what to do type deal"
 but I truly think Anjulie completely captures it in it's entirety. 
The feeling of being caught out in the rain. 
In between 2 decisions because you're living lived both right and wrong.
Rain, one of the purest moments of reflection.
Causing you to be completely submerged in thought, pain, pleasure
with no shame liberating yourself or with total regret, crying out in camouflaged sorrow.

"I know you're not good for me
And I know you're like a drug, it's killing me.
But I don't wanna get my fix
No baby, I don't want to let you in our out."

I easily play this 5x in a row.
It's that real.

Skinny Tie

Killed it with the skinny tie

Funny how inspiration can come from the most unlikely of places.
At times it's at an all-time low.
Other times it's coming at me from everywhere and everything and it just can't be contained. To where I'm bursting with it and sometimes have no idea what to do with it.
It's immobilizing. And you just have to wait until the wave subsides...
Like a midnight rush, blessings in disguise.
And now more than ever I'm feeling inspired, no lie.
I've always knew there were beautiful things out there,
(I've seen them myself)
I've always knew there was more and wanted better, wanted the best for myself
(I've dreamed and made it a goal for myself)
but actually witnessing and being in the presence of these intangibles
makes me want to go even harder to take it even farther.


Some from people, people I view in the highest regards.
People who will never know how big of an impact they have on me,
Regardless of how well I truly know them but never letting that change the fact they inspire me.

Some from things, things overlooked, things forgotten.
Things not as mentioned, things not regarded as cool or the norm, things not as socially accepted.
No matter how odd or off because it's those that in get me going.
The way things should be and how I want them to be.

Some from places, places that only take a mood or a mindset to transition to.
Places that a mere image can have you jet-setting with the feeling.
Places where being in it's presence will have will have it undeniably apparent.

Ultimately, this collaborative conglomerate of inspiration keeps me fueled and motivated to do, to be, to achieve.
Life... that's inspiring enough
And I'm inspired!


Last week I was straight got down on these bad boys.
Similar arepas of Latin American cuisine, 
Pupusas are a traditional El Salvadorean meal
made of masa, quesillo y carne 
(res, pollo or pulled pork)
usually accompanied with 
black beans, cheese, curtido y salsa.

So good.
Better than good.
These are heaven!

Meat, cheese and masa 
blended together like that should be a SIN!

My advice:
find you own local pupusa spot, rapido
