Holstee Manifesto

A very special coworker of mine found this and said it reminder her of me. I was flattered because it is pretty freaking amazing. So I ordered a poster for my office and would love for you to enjoy the vid. Apparently Holstee is company that sells some random stuff and apparently has some pretty inspired marketing writers.

Adele 21

First of all... Thank you to Laura for the birthday present!

This album is amazing. I have always been a sucker for emotional music especially coming from power singers like Adele. I have had the album for 6 months now and continue to be obsessed. The album is inspired by one of Adele's relationships that happened to be a very difficult one that ended pretty badly. According to Wikipedia this is what Adele says about the dude she was with:

He was my soul mate. We had everything—on every level we were totally right. We’d finish each other’s sentences, and he could just pick up how I was feeling by the look in my eye, down to a T, and we loved the same things, and hated the same things, and we were brave when the other was brave and weak when the other one was weak...and I think that’s rare when you find the full circle in one person, and I think that’s what I’ll always be looking for in other men.

I feel for Adele but am grateful for artists like her who bare their souls through their music. Those artists make the best music that can really affect the lives of it's listeners. I used to have a cheesy sign in my room that read "Music is what feelings sound like." I said it was cheesy! But I love it and it's true. And one more thing, emotions sometimes get a bad rap but even the pain we feel is a beautiful thing. Embrace your emotions, we have them for a reason, and don't forget the Kleenex when you listen to this album. 

My fav songs are "One and Only" and "Someone Like You".
