Why you need to watch the Rachel Zoe Project

Hey everyone.
I've been meaning to write this for awhile, but I never wanted it to come across as being sarcastic or tongue-in-cheek. The thing is, I really enjoyed watching season 1 of the Rachel Zoe Project. There's just something about it that's so wonderful, how Rachel views choosing clothing as an academic endeavor, with rights and wrongs but an overall complete subjective viewpoint of what is "bananas".

Rachel Zoe Missoni

Her clothing tastes are, of course, impeccable. I wish I could articulate what I like so much about the show, but it's the lack of the functioning A key [when I was watching my friend's dog, he jumped up on my Macbook Pro keyboard accidently, ripping a key off. I was pissed because now typing is burdensome, and I love to type, but it's not the cute, lil' doggie's fault. I shouldn't have put it on the bed.]

I think I love Rachel is because of her compassion. Her compassion for herself, her employees, and for her viewers. I don't know how to explain it, but even though she has this artistic eye, the vision of which she never strays from, she never ...she always tries to synthesize how it will relate to everyone else. Ugh, it doesn't make sense. But she makes her world view...she tries to present it in a way that's her own, but so we can understand it.

OMG this blog entry is just like...going nowhere.

But I will say this -- WE NEED SEASon 2 of RACHEL ZOE ProjEcT like yesterday!

Tell me what you think about the show!!

I do love how Rachel loves Missoni as much as i do.

Senator Palin

"The Gentlewoman from Alaska, Senator Palin"

Senator Palin

Now that we know there's no way that Sarah Palin won't be VP, the next thing to consider is if she's going to become a Senator. With Senator Ted Stevens, 84 [???] years old [ed note: Does Sarah have some thing for taking advantage of elderly, powerful men -- shall we call her Anna Nicole Palin?], almost out of the picture, she could place herself right into the Washington she hates.

Senator Palin. I would love to see her and Hillary placed on the same committee. I don't doubt that Sarah has potential, but she has no curiosity, and has been considered an anti-intellectual. That is putting it lightly.

Does Sarah deserve to be in Washington? Yes, if the proper people elect her. No one elected her to be VP, she was chosen by the Republicans [may God bless them that they reform stronger than ever].

I think a two-party system is important, and even though I’m a liberal leaning Democrat, I think the Republicans really have to reform and create a new message.

But what ruined Sarah Palin’s credibility and what is she going to have to do to become huge in Washington?

1. Do something eco-friendly.
2. New hairstyle/glasses
3. Have one of her children be gay, become pro-gay marriage.
4. Say that she was on drugs during the VP campaign...that maybe can explain away her inability to answer any questions.
5. Become a published author in highly-regarded academic journals.
6. Sex tape with Todd [sorry, that would be hot -- not gonna lie, they’re both beautiful people]
7. Become more crunchy and hippie-ish : publicly destroy/burn expensive clothes the RNC bought her, or sew them into a giant AIDS quilt and sell it for fund-raising. Next, wear overalls and clogs -- Todd would always have to be shirtless or nude.
8. Go to grad school, finish top of her class, get a PhD, teach, and become a community organizer.
10. Go blonde.

Do you agree what my ideas for Sarah Palin 2.0? Please let me know in the comments section!

What is my American dream?

I was reading a headline on the news right before drifting off to bed, but it created a rise in me. The headline is:

Voter at rally: 'Barack Obama is the American Dream'

It made me think of what my American dream is. America is a land of immigrants, where almost all the people that are here today are the descendants of very brave men and women who left their home for the hope of a better future. I feel obligated in a very good way to show them that it was worth it, that I am achieving the American dream, that their struggles were worth the heartache and struggle, the coal mines, the hunger, the sadness.

We Americans need to consider...what is our American dream? People like Obama, and even Sarah Palin show us that no matter what others think, anything is possible.

It took Sarah Palin six years and many, many colleges to get her bachelor's degree. This woman then went on to become the Vice President candidate. Obama was addicted to cocaine, or at least used it, and is now going to be our President.

This goes to show that in reality, the only thing stopping us is ourselves. IF we don't care what others think, we can attain great things.

My past certainly isn't those two people. What will I become? Or, more accurately, what will I choose to become?
