Years of madness - rewind

      Within my years of blogging, I've taken a liking for certain past posts. In some cases even feel the need to re-write the same topic. For instance, what's up with the whole Micaela/Harlynn name game. You can read the elaborated explanation, it's actually strange how I came about being Harlynn. Also, who Harlynn is.

      I've had controversial topics that have both gained and lost readers of mine. My blogging guru always taught me to remember my legal rights while having the courage to post about anything. My bash on the blogging environment was quite the thrill. Favorite opinionated comments by far. When you blog blunt, your feedback is blunt.

      My whole small manic redhead living in Metro Detroit topics are the only writings I have relevant to travel. If you're not from Detroit, the casual crimes tend to freak you out. My dumb ass takes daring acts. Including the time I lectured a crack dealer. I was walking to the gas station, complimented a strangers Cadillac, and you can go read how that went.

      My circus freak nature started off as a hobby, and became a sport in which I lost 100lbs doing. Here's my success story. Using a weighted hoop your first time is easier because momentum will build without too much repetative speed needed. You can make your own easily. My first few I made myself. Here's the secret on how to make your own adult hula hoop. Wondering what the hell you'd do with a hula hoop? You can learn anything from basic waist hooping to butt hooping.

      Fashion bloggers I give much credit for their research and photography. My only OOTD post was surprisingly a success! Check out my fashion sense here. Lately my man has been the fashion police, and now realize I never match. He finds it cute, I find it irritating now that I try coordinating outfits...I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to fashion and beauty.

I will no longer let you control me

      Laziness and loneliness are often confused. Similar to love and lust, they go hand in hand yet total opposites. When loneliness hits, seclusion follows. Seclusion drives one mad, especially when they've got only themselves to guide their day away. That's when the madness comes into effect. Wasting life away lost in thought. Time is only hope at this point.

      I've come to learn ways to help avoid getting lost in your own mind.
Don't find something to depend on. Too many people in my area depend on heroin. Heroin is not a coping skill hoarding puppies isn't either. You need to have control over your dependence.
Smoke trees, but don't pawn your television for a sack. Do yoga, but don't stop contributing to your nutritional health. Learn graffiti art, but don't huff the paint. Learn knive throwing, but don't crave the pain when you accidentally get cut. Take up kick boxing, but don't use it towards others to release anger.

      When you're losing control to the point your mind tells your heart and body what to do, continue whatever it is you're doing not what you're thinking about doing. This isn't deep breathing.You won't get looks as if you're in the dentist's waiting room doing some deep breathing (quality entertainment at its best). Think about four things you can view, three things you can feel, two things you can hear, one thing you smell, and one thing you taste.
      You have just refreshed all five of your senses, you now have full control. Shit is nifty, works nicely for myself. I'll be bashing the wall with a baseball bat out of control while going through the thought process. I'm usually confused, but hault shortly after.

      How do you deal with your "crazy" side?

Hooping last of Summer away

      So my last post decided it didn't want to share my video. Since I uploaded it via Facebook instead of YouTube, you just have to click the link shown and the video will appear in the post. Here's an updated one experimenting with new moves. Unbiased opinions please! Hoop dancing and really dancing in general has always been a huge passion of mine. I'll be sure to post updated videos as I learn more!

Roses are red


      I've come to fancy the madness down here. Roses are red, violets talk with you, the tea is much better, much warmer as it brewed. The keys in my hand, and I've managed to find the lock. Sometimes I wonder what would've happened if I just would've knocked. 

      Sometimes I wonder why I keep wandering on. The further I get, the further the madness escalates. Smiles guide me, but I'm not sure where. I remember where the light is...I want out of here. 

      I had followed a path from the bottom of the rabbit hole. Made it all the way to where I am now, a beautiful flower garden. I pick a rose to put in my hair, and turn to go on my way. The path has vanished. Brushed away like Hansel and Gretal's path of crumbs...
