Yes I have been absent.  I have not kept up with anything.  Any my defense my life has taken a very unexpected turn.  One that I did not see coming.  Don't worry this is not bad.....just surprising.  For the longest time I thought I had my life figured out.  Didn't want to change anything, I was happy with everything the way it was.  Is it fate or is it destiny??  I'm not sure.  All I know is it has been an incredible ride the last 3 months and even though now more then ever I have no idea where my life is headed I look forward to seeing what is around the next turn.
I will explain more later.  I know this isn't much detail....but it is a great story......

Can you say starstruck?

So today I had an experience that I know I will never have again in my lifetime.
I won't even joke about it, I have a major crush on Darren Criss.  (and it really shouldn't be a surprise to anyone).   This is serious.  I have pictures of him all over my phone and IPOD, I have a lot, not all of his songs on my IPOD.  And I watch Glee JUST to see if he is on it that day.
Well, he is on tour right now with the glee cast doing their summer concert series, and the "stalker" that I am, I know the websites to go to that post little videos of the previous nights performances.  One night about two weeks ago I was doing just that but realized I knew someone standing on the stage RIGHT NEXT to him. 
I was freaking out, the brother of one of the girls I work with was a Warbler!!  Why didn't anyone tell me?  She could get him to give me an autograph or SOMETHING right?
After my inital freak out I deceided not to say anything to Loni, cause you don't want to be that annoying person, right?  But Jacki, helped out with that and I didn't need to say anything.  ha.  I really didn't think much would happen.  First of all I am a nobody with an insane crush, and they are all extremely busy, and try as Loni might her brother never had the time to call her back............until today.
What would you do if the one person you NEVER thought you would meet, you have a HUGE crush on, was on the other end of the phone that was handed to you?  I will tell you, not be able to form sentences, not comprehend what he is asking to come up with an actual answer, the last 5 seconds of the conversation actually pull yourself together to say, thanks for being who you are, and feel like a complete dork afterwards cause all you can think was, did I just say that? did that really just happen? 
And that doesn't include the dazed and confused feeling, and the fleeting thought, was that a joke?  And the moment you realize you aren't breathing properly so TAKE A BREATHE!
I know I am rambling so I will try to wrap it up.  Because of my wonderful friend Loni, and her brother that is on tour with Darren Criss ;)  I can say out loud..." I talked to Darren Criss today on the phone, I don't remember much...except he called me his best friend *sigh* but I will remember the experience for the rest of my life!
And to Darren, what I would have liked to say, Honestly you have changed my life.  Because of you I have discovered a passion for acceptance of people and their rights to live the way they chose to live that I didn't know I had. You are a genuine person who cares about others, and takes the time out of your busy schedule to talk to a nobody like me.  (How many people would do that in his position)
And you are very talented. I may have just discovered you recently but you will have a fan for life.

9 years

It has been 9 years. And I remember almost everything. When Febuaury rolls around each year it is hard to turn off the memories. I won't go into details, because a lot of you already know the main story. My one and only sister went blind because of one month on acne medication. One month and the rest of her life was changed forever. At the time it is hard to look forward to the future and think that everything is going to be OK. Amanda has to deal with this everyday, every minute, every second of her life. At least once this time of year, I think "if only". If only we would have realized. If only she didn't take the medication at all. If only......... But she did, and this is what she lives with. I look up to my sister more then she may know. She has made something of her life despite the blindness. She has lived her life to the fullest, despite her blindness. I don't know if I would have been that brave to wake up every morning knowing that when I opened my eyes it was still going to be dark. I don't know that I would have been able to never see the faces of my family again. I don't know that I could never know what my husband looked like or nieces or nephew looks like. These are the things that Amanda will never have but she has moved forward with an awesome attitude. She has her moments. Of course she would have her moments. And every day she has challenges that most of us will never have in our lifetime. Thank you for being and example to me. Thank you, Amanda for never giving up. By the way Happy Anniversary!!!!
