The Hiding Place

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom is an absolutely extraordinary book. Never have I read a book in which the spiritual beauty of the author so resonated throughout the story. The purity of heart that manifests itself in this inspiring saga of a heroic, Dutch family in Nazi occupied Holland during World War II is stunningly beautiful. Of all the books I've ever read, this is the one that has remained in my mind and my heart for many years. I encourage all to read this magnificent and inspiring story.

Stripes & Smiles

"All the mimsy were the borogroves and the momeraths outgrabe."

I Miss Reagan

I desperately desire for the days when a President’s promise was his binding word. When his greatest asset at stake was not his popularity or public recognition, but rather the maintenance of his personal honor and dignity. If government were ran with those simple ideals, we would all live in a very different country.  What ever happened to "by the people, for the people"? There has been a shift of power which would now make that statement read "By the elites, for the elites". It's as though the government no longer trusts us to make our decisions regarding our country. They'd rather fill our head with empty promises while campagning, and once they take office, they'll make radical changes that insult our responsibility, and limit our freedom. No one doubted him when he said he'd make "all of our problems go away". And instead of doing that, he seems to have created more problems. It's time someone let him know this country belongs to me as much as it belongs to him.

Cakes and Powder

I found this little doll in my grandmas basement. 
She reminds me of a little Marie Antoinette

No Corsets for Coco

"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." 

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." 

"Fashion is made to become unfashionable."

"A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future."

"Those who create are rare; those who cannot are numerous. Therefore, the latter are stronger."

True Colors

I love Cyndi Lauper! Look at her! She is so fun. Who can have candy colored hair like she does and get away with it? She is so comfy to be in her own skin and all of those colorful beads

Love Fern

If anyone is a chick flick fan like I am then you have definitely seen How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. In one scene Andy, played by Kate Hudson, shows up unexpectedly to Ben's apartment, played by Matthew McConaughey, with a "Love Fern" in her hands. She tells him it's just a little plant now but with tender loving care it will grow, just like their love. My best friend Whitney and I thought it would be hilarious to buy a "Love Fern" for us. Of course we had to buy a plastic fern so it would never die just like our friendship for each other. We bought it at a cheesy craft store where all they sell there are fake flowers, and we purchased our 1.99 plastic fern and brought it home with us. Cute huh? I know. 

My Skeleton Friend Jack

I had an imaginary friend when I was really young. He was Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas. I felt safe when I thought about Jack being right there by my side. He was my tall, skinny, non-eyeballed friend.  I always made my cute mom put him in his seat belt whenever we went in the car, he always had a place setting at the dinner table, which of course was just an empty plate but nonetheless he would still get hungry, and he would always go down the dark basement stairs first so as to make sure nothing was going to jump out and scare me. There is a song by Kate Nash called the Skeleton Song.The song is about her imaginary friend who is a skeleton and she can't seem to get rid of him because she loves him too much. It is one of my favorite songs of all time. Jack Skellington Pumpkin by Jooliree.
Skeleton you are my friend
But you are made of bone
And you have got no flesh and blood
Running through you to help protect the bone

Skeleton we have been friends for years
And you have seen me through some trials
And tribulations and some tears
But everybody thinks I'm weird
And I should have known
That it wouldn't be long
Until you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do
Skeleton we are so close
But you have got no body
So why do you insist on wearing clothes
Skeleton when we were young
It was easy
Even though the other kids
They would tease me
But I was only seven I had you
But now I'm twenty-two
And now it's different, when I take you out
And you, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
And it's not that I'm letting go of you
But I don't know what to do
'Cause sometimes at night,
I dream of the most terrible things
I take a hammer and I creep out of bed
And I raise it high
And I smash your head
Fibular and tubular
And ribs and cages, too
In fact, while I'm here
I'll smash the whole of you

Smaaaaaaaaaaash !
But Skeleton, you are my friend
And I could never bring your life to an end
Yes Skeleton you are, you are my friend
And I will be there for you until the end
And even though, when I take you out
You've got me, you've got me standing in an awkward position
With unwanted attention and a need for explanation
I could, I could never let you go
And that is all I know
And that is all I know
And that is all I, that is all I know
And that is all I know, know

The Secret Life of Daydreams

You get ideas from daydreaming.  You get ideas from being bored.  You get ideas all the time. When ideas float in our mind without any reflection or regard of the understanding, it is that which the French call revery, our language has scarce a name for it. If you have never stared off into the distance with a blank face and glassy eyes, then life is a shame. 

Filmed DNA

"What is Cinema? We might as well ask "What is life?", for film, like life, is made of moments; moments in time, held aloft for our perusal, imprinted on our soul, and then brought back to us from time to time as a memory -- by an event, a vision, a sound, an emotion. The separation becomes trivial -- cinema is life, and life cinema: around us, beside us, inside us. The cinema, then, is not to be consumed with haste; films are not to be digested simply as they unfold, like some plastic-wrapped fast-food. Created by light and celluloid, they live only in our minds and in our hearts, savoured both during and after the fact. Projected onto the screen and into our consciousness, where they are replayed over and over -- continually re-discovered artefacts which are constantly changing us. What, then, can we say is truly real? A memory? An event? A celluloid image? The answer lies in the cinema. All is real. Nothing is impossible." - Glen Norton

I have a passion for film. I fall in love with the stories, the emotional connections, the clever memorable lines spoken by the characters, the costumes, the makeup, the suspense, romance, I could go on. I love the passion the characters bring to life. I always have liked characters who were passionate and felt certain ways, but weren't who they perceived to be. There are so many characters in classic literature who are passionate and have a desire to do something in a way that isn't really acknowledged, just like the Don Quixote story, in which some character is on a quest for some sort of feeling, not even knowing what that is. It's a very primal thing to me, that kind of searching for something and not even knowing what it is, but being passionate about it.  A visit to a cinema is a little outing in itself. It breaks the monotony of an afternoon or evening; it gives a change from the surroundings of home, however pleasant. Film can be bizarre, classic, normal, romantic. Cinema is to me the most versatile thing. I loves it!

Scissor hands for Edward

One of my favorite movies of all time would have to be Edward Scissorhands. It is a moody and bizarre modern day fairytale of a misunderstood alienated artist. Here you have a character who wants to touch but can't, who is both creative and destructive, and I think those two contradictions can create a kind of ambivalence. The manifestation of Edward Scissorhands probably comes to the surface to teenagers because it is a very teenage thing. It has to do with relationships. Sometimes I feel I can't communicate my feelings. The image of Edward is a feeling that your image and how people perceive you are at odds with what's inside you. I remember growing up and feeling that there is a lot of room for acceptance. You are taught at a very early age to conform to certain things. It's a situation that is very prevalent and which starts from day one at school: this person is smart, this person is not smart, this person is weird, this person is normal. From day one you are categorized. I don't know why people do it because it seems to me that nobody would like it done to them. It's kind of frustrating and sad at the same time, because somebody is saying you're this and somehow it's removed from you. And the more quiet somebody is, or the more different people feel you are, the more they like to do it.

Top Three

I sit here, hunched at the keyboard, banging away on an old ratty computer, which does not understand me at all, nor I it, especially with a million thoughts swirling around my skull on how to proceed with something as personal on my update on my relationship with my many a idols. Audrey Hepburn, with her wise words, class, talent, and beauty. Tim Burton, with his pale, frail looking, sad eyes, and hair that expresses much more than last night's pillow struggle. A clump to the east, four sprigs to the west, a swirl, and the rest of the unruliness to all points north and south. His unique way of showing the world who he truly is and not being ashamed of it in the least. Walt Disney, with his pure thirst for the impossible. His quick wit, his ability to dream big, and his passion. Now by seeing way beyond the novelty of my unique idols, I find profound respect for 'those who are not others.' All three, to me, are true geniuses. You can't label what they have done. It's not magic, because that would imply some sort of trickery. It's not just skill, because that seems like it's learned. What they have are very special gifts that we don't see everyday. They aren't just famous or celebrities. Their thoughts, insights, and ideas are so much more. They are artists, oddballs, brilliant, and brave. I have never seen people so out of place, so inordinate fit right in. Their way.

So Serendipitous

I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, no matter how big or small the reason is. While I was sitting here thinking about this very thing, my thoughts began to wonder why I went to Utah State for those 4 stressful months. I have been racking my brain for so long, asking myself why I went... these past few weeks have now opened my eyes. I think I now know why I went... Serendipity happened to me.

The Wrath of Me

When it comes to creativity, anything goes. Creativity, in its purest essence, means the mind is free to imagine any possibility. The sky is the limit. In its purest sense, there are no rules! And if there is a trick to harnessing that power of creativity, it is not to try to control the imagination, but rather set it free. When people are plugged into the power of unbridled creativity, our free-soaring imaginations always seem to carry us toward discovery and subsequent practical (and sometimes impractical, as the case may be) application. Fueled by the a mixture of passion and curiosity. I think we need to get over the fear of failure and dive into the unknown and try something new and different. When we see through the eyes of imagination, anything can happen. You never know what you are capable of doing until you start dreaming and doing it. I love fashion. I love the creativity it offers. I love it because people live their life in it. Everyone expresses themselves through their clothes. It is how they want to be perceived by the world. It is their unique way of saying, "Here I am world! this is who I am, this is what I have been through and done in my life." I am at heart a shopaholic. I love clothes. My closet is stuffed to the gill! I can't seem to get enough of the colors, textures, and the unique cuts of clothes. I am just in love with clothes! Here of some pics of me at my first photo shoot. Enjoy!

Uncle Blue

My Uncle Chris, or Blue as we called him, passed away unexpectedly last week at 36 years of age. He had a passion for many things: Legos, Star Wars, Books, Disneyland, but most importantly, his beautiful wife, and three amazing children. He had a Tigger tattoo on his left leg. And just like Tigger, he brought joy, energy, and bounce to everyone who knew him. Chris was always in a bouncing mood and just like Tigger, he was expressing his zest for life and is a form which he often used as a technique to share his eagerness and happiness or even fondness amongst his dear friends and family.

The wonderful thing about Tiggers Is Tiggers are wonderful things

Their tops are made of rubber The bottoms are made out of springs They're bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers Is I'm the only one The wonderful thing about Tiggers Is Tiggers are wonderful chaps They're loaded with vim and vigor They love to leap in your laps They're jumpy, bumpy, clumpy, thumpy Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers Is I'm the only one Tiggers are are cuddly fellows Tiggers are awfully sweet Everyone else is jealous That is why I repeat The wonderful thing about Tiggers Is Tiggers are wonderful things Their tops are made of rubber Their bottoms are made out of springs They're bouncy, trouncy,flouncy, pouncy Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers Is I'm the only one I'm the o-o-o-only one!!! Grrrr!

This song defines my Uncle Blue. He was fun fun fun! and the only one of his kind. I will miss him greatly. I love him dearly. TTFN Uncle Blue ta-ta for now.

Lyrics of my Life

These are a few of my favorite songs with "Feel Good" lyrics that keep me going and make me feel good to be Lizzie Love. The songs are not complete, just threw in a few of my favorite lines.

Crazy by Meredith Brooks
This town's always gonna think I'm a little crazy
Somebody's always gonna try to label me insane
Funny how I always seem to be the one who's crazy
I just wanna live, I don't wanna fit
If that makes me crazy, then I am...
I just want to live
I don't want to fit
I just want to try
I don't want to quit
If that makes me crazy, I am.

Mariella by Kate Nash
I'm far too loud
It's like, as soon as I've got an opinion
It just has to come out
I laugh at stupid things
Just 'cause they tickle me...
But Mariella just smiled as she skipped down the road
Because she knew all the secrets in her world.

Self Portrait by Stephanie Smith
All of these dreams in my head keep spinning round
I'm grabbing my paper and pencil to pin em down
I'll sketch my world as a prettier place
and draw myself with a smiley face
and make this picture perfect
But all of these lines on my page won't mean anything
until I learn to erase the one's that I don't need
I'm covering up the stupid mistakes and starting
over and over again to make this picture perfect
yeah yeah I'll start where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
No one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah
Every now and again someone comes along
they try to box me into a corner I've drawn
pushing the walls down struggling free
so I can keep making this picture perfect yeah yeah
I'll start with where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down
because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah
What I'm sketching doesn't have to be anything fancy
no I'm just shaping stronger sides of me of me of me
yeah yeah yeah I'll start with where I'm standing now
and begin shaping where I want to be
no one can tear my picture down because it's me
and as long as I'm still proud of this self portrait I'm creating
I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine yeah I'm doing fine I'm doing fine.

New Soul by Yael Naim
I'm a new soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake
See I'm a young soul in this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate? try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

That's Life by Frank Sinatra
That's life, that's what all the people say.You're riding high in April, Shot down in May
But I know I'm gonna change that tune, When I'm back on top, back on top in June. I said that's life, and as funny as it may seem. Some people get their kicks,stompin' on a dream
But I don't let it, let it get me down,'Cause this fine ol' world it keeps spinning around
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn and a king. I've been up and down and over and out and I know one thing: Each time I find myself, flat on my face, I pick myself up and get back in the race. That's life, I tell ya, I can't deny it,I thought of quitting baby, But my heart just ain't gonna buy it. And if I didn't think it was worth one single try, I'd jump right on a big bird and then I'd fly...

Sunglasses on my Face

Wandering around in a department store, with nothing to do except browse the isles, I always walk out of there smelling like 20 different perfume samples and wearing new sunglasses.

A Wonderland for a girl named Alice

Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories. There is a mix of satire and wisdom from Lewis Carroll's timeless book. These quotes from Alice in Wonderland are humorous, yet enlightening.

  • I quite agree with you. And the moral of that is: Be what you would seem to be, or if you'd like it put more simply: Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise. - The Duchess

  • If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see? -Alice

  • Mad Hatter: Would you like a little more tea? Alice: Well, I haven't had any yet, so I can't very well take more. March Hare: Ah, you mean you can't very well take less. Mad Hatter: Yes. You can always take more than nothing.

  • Doorknob: Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.
  • Alice: It would be so nice if something would make sense for a change.
  • Mad Hatter: Oh yes mustard! That'll do... Mustard? Don't lets be silly. Now lemon, that's different...
  • Alice: Curiouser and Curiouser

Practically necessary

My grandma's old sweatshirt I found in the back of her closet.
Whenever I walk into a vintage clothing store or a thrift store, I wonder why we ever buy brand new clothes. I think it's better to wear something that is not as recognizable as Prada. Vintage is timeless. Timelessness is important to me. I personally think it is better to be old-fashioned and right than to be up to date and wrong. But when it comes down to it, I base my fashion taste on what doesn't itch.

Colored Blue

When people ask me about my favorite color I have to tell them a different answer every time. My favorite color changes everyday. Today it's blue. I got a little digital camera for christmas, and since I am on a high for the color blue, I went out and started taking quick snapshots of my favorite color for the day.

My favorite word

My dream is to visit New York City, sit down in the Serendipity restaurant, and enjoy their famous frozen hot chocolate with my grandma Nina, my aunt Annie, and my wonderful mom. Serendipity is my favorite word. It's just such a nice sounding name for what it means... a fortunate accident. One facet of serendipity to bear in mind is that you have to be looking for something in order to find something else. It's kind of like putting a quarter in the gumball machine and having two gumballs come clattering out. Such a serendipitous moment!

It was Barack Obama's Inauguration today. It has been a very trying day. To lift my spirits, I watched Ronald Reagan's Inauguration Address instead. The words that he spoke in 1981 still apply to us today. Here are some of the wise passages from his speech.

  • "In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price."
  • "It is my intention to curb the size and influence of the federal establishment and to demand recognition of the distinction between the powers granted to the federal government and those reserved to the states or to the people. All of us need to be reminded that the federal government did not create the states; the states created the federal government.Now, so there will be no misunderstanding, it's not my intention to do away with government. It is rather to make it work--work with us, not over us; to stand by our side, not ride on our back. Government can and must provide opportunity, not smother it; foster productivity, not stifle it."
  • "We have every right to dream heroic dreams. Those who say that we're in a time when there are no heroes, they just don't know where to look. You can see heroes every day going in and out of factory gates. Others, a handful in number, produce enough food to feed all of us and then the world beyond. You meet heroes across a counter, and they're on both sides of that counter. There are entrepreneurs with faith in themselves and faith in an idea who create new jobs, new wealth and opportunity. They're individuals and families whose taxes support the government and whose voluntary gifts support church, charity, culture, art, and education. Their patriotism is quiet, but deep. Their values sustain our national life. Now, I have used the words "they" and "their" in speaking of these heroes. I could say "you" and "your," because I'm addressing the heroes of whom I speak--you, the citizens of this blessed land. Your dreams, your hopes, your goals are going to be the dreams, the hopes, and the goals of this administration, so help me God."

Here are some quotes from President Reagan

  • "Don't be afraid to see what you see." -Ronald Reagan
  • "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free" -Ronald Reagan
  • "Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit." -Ronald Reagan
  • "I don't believe in a government that protects us from ourselves." -Ronald Reagan
  • "I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life." -Ronald Reagan
  • "Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book." -Ronald Reagan
  • "The government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it." -Ronald Reagan
  • "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help." -Ronald Reagan
  • (one of my favorites) "To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone (Obama) will make things right is to go feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last--but eat you he will." -Ronald Reagan
  • "I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born." -Ronald Reagan
  • "A nation without borders is not a nation" -Ronald Reagan

I am on the right scale of the spectrum when it comes to politics. I am very conservative. Anyone who knows the history of our government, would never vote to enlarge it. I will not vote for the murder of innocent souls in a mother's womb, I will keep my money, I will keep the right to pledge to my God, I will keep the right to bear arms, I will work hard for my money and choose for myself how to spend it, I will keep my freedom! Obama can keep his "CHANGE"

So I started back to work as a lifeguard yesterday, and I already find myself daydreaming of things that I could do with my life. This I know... I want to create. I don't know what I want to create. All I know is, if I don't figure out this something, I will just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if its a work of art or a floor lamp, or a soda can! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it will be me, out in the world, outside of myself and I can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and I will know a little more about me. A little bit more than anyone else does. I will be my own person, my own me. Lizzie Love.

Cheers! Let the New Year unfurl!

Cheers to the New Year! And a fond farewell to the old. Here's to the things yet to come, and to the memories we will always hold in our hearts. This year while watching the famous Ball drop in New York, I found that in the younger generations you're allowed to stay up late. In the slightly older generations you're forced to. I hope many people look forward to this New Year for a new start on old habits!
