Hey!

Hello?

It’s like talking to yourself in the mirror sometimes. (or maybe that’s just me)

How do you start a text conversation with someone you’ve never texted before?

How do I start a blog after I haven’t written in forever!! #awkward

It’s almost like running into that ex you never speak highly of at a Starbucks super randomly and are forced to say something rather than hide behind the coffee beans for sale….

Then later when you get in the car you replay what the hell came out of your mouth and wish that moment never happened. 

So i guess, here I am, back from the dead. I have a to do list in my pocketbook of “Blogs I need to write” Who have I become?

I am not even sure if anyone is reading this because I feel like I lost everyone that ever used to read my thoughts haha. 

Where did i go you ask? Well, I met an amazingly wonderful man, so i have been happy. lol that’s the first reason why I have not been on here pouring out my little sad heart because my “other half” wouldn’t listen. #stab

I’ve thankfully been super busy with dance jobs and traveling with them! :) So that has been a lot of fun and I will be writing about them soon. I went on tour with Rihanna and Eminem, been doing shows with Rita Ora, my man turned 25, my best friend of 16 years moved into my house, one of my roommates thinks I am satan, my dog is awesome and my friends are pretty cool.

I am just going to accept that this blog is going to be a little awkward, kind of like the morning after because I have to get my foot back in the door with all of you.

Some say only fools fall in love.

I say, if you never make a fool out of yourself, you aren't living.



For a while I was living life out of the same boring old novel that lost that amazing book smell.

redundant sentences, boring characters, a downhill plot and mundane scenery.

I finally finished that book, an turned it in for a new one. This new book has a lot of blank pages leaving room for imagination and my own creation. No one is writing it for me for once. It is not a sequel to the previous book. All new characters, a new plot, new scenery and no grammar rules.

Everything is so refreshing, I am not being forced into being apart of something that only brings misery. I am learning how to weed out the "weeds" in my life.

I now understand that saying that holding onto the past only hinders your future. It's a liberating feeling.

Someone came into my life that threw me for a loop. I never once thought I wasn't ready for something until now.

the word "ready"? Are we ever really "ready"? I hate that. These restrictions we put on ourselves to allow us to be "ready" for something.

This happened out of no where and has brought me back to ME. I now see how lost I have been for a minute. Caring about things that DONT matter. Crying about people and circumstances that are so unimportant that it now makes me laugh.

How scary is that that a person can do that to you? Make you believe that you are something you are not?? Brainwashing. It exists. totally lol

So now, realzing all of this in a month, I'm making the necessary changes to keep writing this fucking incredible new book. Taking initiative in getting rid of everything and anything that has ever held me back. I am moving away from nostalgia. Throwing things out, changing my residence, deleting everything that has kept me from this moment of clarity.

Sometimes it just takes 1 person to help you see all this. I don't think they will ever realize what good they have done for me, & hopefully won't find it overwhelming. But then it goes back to the point of, then what's the point of living if you can't just fully be YOU.

We try  so hard now a days to conform into groups of friends, social circles, being accepted and "liked" online, in real life etc that we forget to live for ourselves. So what I am trying to say in this rant, rather than complaining about everything and everyone, wake the fuck up and take charge.

You hate your friends? GET NEW ONES

Is your boyfriend a dick? GET RID OF HIM

we are all too young, even if you are 68 years old.

Life is short. Go live it damnit.

NOTES FROM THE OUTERNET // Let's All Be A Little More "Jared Leto-like"

Dani Vitale
Dani Vitale Feb 28, 2014

I read this article someone wrote about Jared Leto today and it was so beautiful. Yes, I have a crazy love for him that I can't explain haha, BUT reading his articles, posts, and watching his documentaries he has SO much to say. He asks so many questions and that's what makes him different from everyone else. He is  so successful, and I am not talking about career wise, I am talking about the way he thinks and sees the world. It is really fascinating to me. He doesn't give a shit, but also cares so much. I think we should all live a little more "Jared Leto-like"

Below is an excerpt from the article that was my favorite.

 

The fact is: Jared Leto doesn’t do what you are supposed to do and he gets away with it. Makes films when he wants to. Records when the time is right. It might be luck, it might be talent, it could be hard work, or it could just be fueled by the naïve optimism that comes from a once-broke Louisiana kid who was told early on that being creative might not make you any less broke, but it might make being broke a little less shitty. It’s why his eyes are wide and blinking them is a waste of precious time. There’s too much to take in, too much to see. Fuck Google Earth. Technology is a weed. It blocks pathways.

“This is a crazy time in my life, but it’s a focused time,” he says. “It’s not like it’s out of control. You only get to do this once and in this case once may be the only time you get to do it. It’s a funny way to say it, but it’s kind of true. I’m acutely aware of that and very respectful of the path I’m walking down. I’m glad that this happened to me now and not when I first started. It’s a really good thing.”

BEN & JERRY'S CHANGING THE WORLD! #fatkidblog

Dani Vitale Feb 26, 2014

No breakup, birthday, "time of the month" will ever be the same soon thanks to Ben & Jerry's...

They are coming out with a NEW ice cream line "CORE" basically it has a column down the middle of the pint that is a core center of fudge, raspberry jam, or caramel. GENIUS. Changing the game of ice cream

I don't know about you but I'll first stand in the aisle for too long trying to even pick out what one I want to indulge in, then when I finally make this life changing decision, I sit and pick out the chocolate fish, cookie dough or caramel bites to make the perfect scoops. 

I feel like they read my mind and answered all my prayers, because now with this new design every scoop and bite is going to be perfect.

Chocolate Peanut butter fan?? Have no worries they are about to blow your mind.

I am the most excited for Hazed and Confused which is chocolate hazelnut ice cream with fudge chips and a hazelnut fudge core that is like CREAMY NUTELLA. 

All of our lives are about to change and those nights on the couch with Ben & Jerry are about to be even more blissful.

LOVE someone who DOESN'T love you back:

Dani Vitale
Dani Vitale Feb 19, 2014

eventually something happens to every single person who loves someone who doesn’t love them back: they manage to stop being in love.

While it takes varying amounts of time, everyone finds their breaking point, that moment when enough becomes enough. It could be the third night you cry yourself to sleep, the fifth time they cancel plans with you to be with someone else, or the eighth night in a row you spend getting drunk alone. It can take months, or even years. But here’s what you’ll have once you get there:

After surviving that kind of ache, you’ll be so much stronger, so much more certain of yourself. You’ll see that all pain (physical, emotional, and metal) is a temporary state of being, not a permanent one. There is always a reason to go on, always a reason to fight for yourself.

You’ll realize that because you are not loved by one does not mean you are not loved by all. You’ll understand that love cannot be won like a teddy bear at the fair; cannot be stolen like a rare painting from a museum in the dead of night. You’ll see that real love comes first from within, not from anyone else. You learn that those annoying people who say things like, “real love comes from within” were telling you the truth this whole time, but you had to learn it for yourself. Don’t worry – you don’t need to tell them they were right.

Getting over unrequited love feels like having a blindfold removed – you suddenly see all the love you’ve had in your life this whole time, and you’ll appreciate those individuals like never before. You will be humbled, you will be grateful, you will be wiser.

Here’s the best part, though, about getting over someone who doesn’t love you: you realize that nobody healed your heartache, that you were able to fix yourself all on your own. And once you’ve proven to yourself that you can recover from that, you won’t be afraid to go looking for love again.

And again, and again and again.

And one of those times, you’re bound to be rewarded with someone who reciprocates every ounce of your unbridled affection, who loves you just as much as you love them, and that will be the most supreme feeling of ecstasy you can fathom. You’ll see that loving someone who didn’t love you back was totally worth it

HELP! Do You Get Him A Gift? Is It Too Soon/Early? #Valentinesdayconfusion

Dani Vitale
Dani Vitale Feb 10, 2014

duh duh duhhhh

The unanticipated holiday all singles dread, couples stress about, and married people forget lol.

Valentines Day.

From a personal perspective and putting my business out there, I will be spending this Valentines Day alone. and oh so happy lol. I luckily enough, will be out of town working the whole weekend, unable to break my 2 month long sobriety of looking at my exboyfriend's social media sites (GO ME! talk about self control lol) to see who his new flavor of the month is....

I'm trying to recall what I did last year when I "was in love".... and nothing comes to mind.

so I guess that is a good situation to be in, I won't be fixated on an amazing past memory!

But now, here is my issue: having little crushes and "things/flings", what are the rules?? Do you wish someone a Happy Valentines Day? Do you expect a gift? A date? Flowers? Do I do something for someone? HELP!

I am sure a couple of us are in this boat, or even madly in love with our significant other and completely clueless as what to do/give on this so called special day. Which I just think personally is the most overrated stupid holiday ever lol. I will stay off instagram and twitter all day, I can google image roses if I want to see pictures of them that bad.

So in my opinion on people in my situation, don't stress the small stuff, wish that guy a Happy Valentines day with a little :) emoji and say have a good day today or something like that, and lets just hope he doesn't send one to you in a mass text with 3 other girls . . . :I 

If some guy asks you on a date or decides to give you something, don't feel awkward or uncomfortable that maybe you didn't think of anything to do, there is always next year... lol 

Go on that date, accept that flower and enjoy being loved for that day! Also, don't expect anything from anyone, I've done that before then just completely lost all hope in life haha

FEB 14th IDEAS!:

Maybe have some friends over for a potluck/game night

Burn old pictures of your ex, 

watch rom coms

laugh all together about ridiculous dating stories! 

sit on tinder or something and right and left swipe each others phones

surround yourself with people you love and that love you back, rather than having a pity party population of 3 on your couch with you and Ben & Jerry...

Love,

d
