Vibes Through the Universe
All I needed was a CD, and a solitary luminous place to stay the whole day, and you wouldn’t see me again until dusk. This was my life as a child. I was never one to fake interests to fit in. While other kids liked Britney spears, I was stuck in the age of ABBA. I would sit there and mouth the words of “dancing queen” while playing the song in my head. The song would get so vibrant and real it would seem to me as through it were really playing and I would sit there in a bus seat swaying back and forth, not really caring if people thought I looked stupid. Not much changed throughout the years, granted, by the time I was in middle school I had a lot more self control to not sit there and sing to myself, but my extreme phases and sense of style, and taste in music still kept me slightly isolated.
It wasn’t until late 2008 I was introduced to the B-52’s. I was a sophomore in high school, and before I knew it, that year became the best year of my life. I was in the car with my best friend and my father, on my way to a church event when all of a sudden this bizarre, crazy, very unique song came on. It was the weirdest thing I’d ever heard in my life. But I LOVED it. The song turned out to be called “Rock Lobster”, it was almost five minutes long, completely
random, creative, all while telling a story. Before I knew it, the band of beehive wigs, glitter and space ships were influencing my art, and sense of fashion. They were bright, happy and weird. Whenever I would get side tracked in school, instead of daydreaming I would sit there and draw a complex picture on my hand with either a June bug, a beach … or perhaps a UFO. The Universe was the limit. And my mind never stopped there, it traveled beyond.
Months of creativity continued until late 2009, when my junior year began. I took another dramatic change, but my taste for the B-52s never died. The year was insane, I was getting into difficult situations on decisions made in a second rather than thinking of the consequences, it wasn’t that I was a bad kid, rather just a little extreme. But no matter what happened, I always had the B-52s to put me in a good mood, because it didn’t matter what was going on, as soon as I turned on their music, I was more upbeat then anyone could ever possibly be. I forgot everything horrible that was going on around me and I made it through that year with the cosmic vibes I carried since the day I was introduced to them.
As I approached my senior year in high school, I met another person that loved their music as much as I did, her name is Michelle, and we became very close friends. She introduced me to another one of her friends, Julie who lives in California. She got me into the art of fire dancing. When you’re dancing with fire, people may view it as a circus act, or some kind of weirdo who’s too bored with their life to have a normal hobby. They’re wrong. The way the fire moves in the dark is beautiful, and when you light up a fire hoop or watch a dancer in the dark... it is enlightening. It’s as energetic as lightning crashing through the heat, but also, it has
certain calmness…especially when you’re dancing to burn away the bad energy that flows in the air you breathe. Like I
I love fire hooping.
