High school: Was nothing special to me! I’m just getting better with age ;)

When I’m nervous: I get knots in my stomach and pull on my fingers

The last song I listened to was: Starry eyed - Ellie Goulding

My hair is: in serious need of a trip

When I was 5: I was terrified of dogs…so my parents bought me one to get me over the fear

Last Christmas: was my first christmas in ohio in a billion years.

By this time next year: I won’t be living in cleveland anymore!

My current gripe is: having wayyyyyyyy to much stuff for my tiny little apartment

I have a hard time understanding: why people are content with being ignorant

I like you when: you can be confident and secure enough in yourself to compliment or recognize the beauty, hard work or effort of other people, knowing that it doesn’t take away from your self worth. Insecurity breeds immaturity.

If I won an award, the first person I would tell would be: my mom or my boyfriend. I’d conference call them both

Take my advice: because I’m annoyingly one of the most emotionally rational people for my age

The thing I want to buy: 2 plane tickets to cali

There’s this guy I know who: has the name Michael Wilhelm Piller and who also has my heart.

If I was an animal I’d be: a humming Bird

A better name for me would be: Something more exotic than Rachel. Because when people ask me my name they act like they expect it to be a tradition Indian name.

Tomorrow I am: going to be counting down the hours until Michael arrives!

Tonight I am: Relaxing :)

My birthday is: December 3rd - 1985 

Let’s try this again.

Obviously keeping up with a tumblr has proven to be next to impossible for me the last few (8) months. So now that my roller coaster life has slowed down for a few minutes, using this again is something I think I should try. We will see. For now this is all I have to say though :)

Write…back…later….

Rest…In…Peace.

To Travel

To say you love to travel is not true. What you love is the idea of partying in a differen’t location other than the place you live. I get that, new people, different scenery…it’s an “adventure”.

So you take 2-4 days spending massive amounts of money on hotel rooms, new clothes and alcohol that you consume almost 24 hours a day on this mini vacation. Then it’s back to the “real world”….until you get this opportunity again. While you rack up phone numbers, free drinks and pictures of random guys taking shots with you and holding you like they’ve known you forever. Good for you, you have boobs and tons of make-up on…you will get attention even if you’re not actually that attractive. Feel special. Guys are shallow. And so are you.

Are there any women, or men that enjoy traveling, NOT just for a drunken hot spot but for the love of seeing the world? The culture, the history, the people…experiencing different foods, music, fashion, archeticture and art….

I love having a good time and checking out the local  bar scence basically everywhere I visit. I’m 23 and not completely frigid….but that is not my sole purpose for going anywhere. Not that I expect everyong to enjoy or appreciate the things I do. Everyone has their own things they are into. That’s fine. And if what you love is to party and get drunk the majority of your “traveling” experience then good for you. Just don’t tell me you love to travel if that is ALL you do when you visit somewhere new, and if you only visit palces like Vegas, Cabo, Miami etc…hhhmmm.

And yes, this is a venting post. I’m sorry if anyone reads this and I make them annoyed. I’m not saying those places aren’t worthy of visiting because they are. Just try to experience life in general…not just the inside of a club/bar.

along with The Audition.

Runner Runner is a pretty rad band. Check them out. I’ll be seeing them in L.A. sunday and I’m pretty stoked.

This thing I do.

I seem to spend about half of my time out to town. I don’t mind, I love to travel. I just don’t like traveling to places without someone to enjoy my surroundings with. So as much as I travel for work, and how blessed I am….traveling for pleasure is preferred. So it’s off to L.A. and surrounding areas again this week. Excited to see some friendly faces and go to the beach (norcal is still not prime beach territory).

I have dinner with an old friend, learning to surf, an art exhibit and a show at the Knitting Factory on the list of things to do so far, aside from work. Let’s hope I remember to take pictures more often than not!…for memory purposes.

One day I will be back…it truly is a magnificant place. Growing up I have dreamt of traveling around the world. Italy being the top of my priority list. As I learned more about other places, the list would get longer. But, Italy never shifted from it’s spot. I am so grateful I got the opportunity to visit such a beautiful country and see so much of it on my first visit with some amazing people.
If you really want something…if you really love something and have a strong desire to make a dream come true, it is always possible to achieve that dream. Even if it’s not the ideal way or in the way you pictured it happening.

Why tumblr

I love the ever changing and rapid progression of the socially “creative” networking websites. What are a few of them again? The obvious of course, i.e. Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Flikr, tumblr…and the many others I’m sure that will make an appearance sooner or later.

I was talking to a friend who was suggesting I make a tumblr account as a way to communicate with people. It confused me for a moment because I was sure that tumblr was more of a blog than it would be another facebook or a myspace. I told her I would look into it, but I probably wouldn’t start one. It’s hard enough to keep up with twitter let alone an actual BLOG about my life…in addition to the blog I already have going on another site.

What convinced me to, cave in, and start an account was the simplicity of it all. Twitter is simple, but I find it a bit boring. Facebook has a million applications, the FB chat, the comments, the messages, song dedications the friend requests the status updates!!! etc. etc. and myspace is quickly surpassing that. Flickr is fun, yes, but I already post enough pictures on the aforementioned sites. However Tumblr…aaah, no one seems to take this as a hardcore way to get emotions out or to compete in how many friends you can follow. And there doesn’t seem to be much emphasis on what is generally expected . No specifics. I can write what I want, even if it’s just the caption to a picture….I can post what I want…even if it’s a picture of my cat or a pretty sunset.

Well, all of this being said. Here I am…joining another site, hoping I can keep up with it! We will see I guess.

San Fransisco has my heart. Always :)
