Why the heck do I find this movie / story line so good? I just finished reading the book for the second time (last time I read it was 4 years ago for H. English during my junior year of high school), and I am dying because I love this book and storyline so much.  The movie is completely inaccurate, but I love it for it’s own storyline. Bahhhh Scarlet Letter, you’ve stolen my heart.

Loving this show! I don’t usually jump on trends in shows, but the fact that this is on Netflix makes it so easy to watch for me.

I’m sure you get junk mail in the snail mail, like we all do. I work at my school’s Post Office, and I’m always hearing people complain about it.  You know what I just did to combat my own junk mail? I just called up the number for one of the free catalogs I’m receiving that I don’t want anymore, and I asked them if I could unsubscribe.  It was SO EASY and the lady I talked to on the phone was super understanding and easy to talk to.  I expected her to make me PROVE why I wanted to unsubscribe, but she was soo understanding.  What a great experience.
There’s no point in wasting all that paper. I see all the paper that gets thrown out at the Post Office, and it’s painful to watch.  It takes literally 2 minutes to call the company and tell them you want to unsubscribe to the catalogs or whatever other advertising junk mail they’re sending you.
Do it, if you get a chance :)

PS: Not to mention unsubscribing from junk EMAIL.  Seriously people just unsubscribe from them!  If you’re getting constant emails from GAP or other retail stores or the Red Cross, you can usually just scroll to the bottom of the email and click “Unsubscribe” or go to your account profile on the site and change the email preferences.  It’s super easy.
Pick your demons for what will annoy you during the day.  The fact that your inbox is stuffed with junk email or your physical mailbox is full of paper junk mail is not worth your energy.  Just unsubscribe, save paper, save energy.

 When your life is filled with constant noise, panic, competition, issues, and fear…it is necessary to leave those ideas behind to find your actual self. It is that exact chaos that propels me daily, much of it coming from my own self doubt. I can speak candidly and openly about this, because I know many people are rowing that same boat to nowhere. 

  Life is (should be) a constant evolution. I am teaching myself to let go of fear and to not sweat the small stuff. It sometimes feels alien to take those baby steps towards self love, but I am determined. 

  I realize that many people look towards me as a beacon of strength and confidence, and I like it. I have been placed in a position of “role model” to so many people of different lifestyles, ages, orientations, all around the world, and I like it. It may come as a surprise to some that someone like me who owns this role in life, is plagued by fear and doubt. I am human, we are human, and from my experiences thus far, I know we will be OK. 

I tell myself “Sutan, you will be fine…breathe, let the universe do her thang”, and when I repeat this mantra, she bestows the most amazing blessings. 

I am writing this to you while on a holiday with friends in Northern Idaho, Lake Hayden to be exact. It is my third summer in a row visiting this tranquil and magical place. If I gave you the role call of friends here with me and my relationship to them, you would also understand what I mean by magic. Upon arrival, it was like I checked the bullshit in my head at the door. I needed the clarity and time to just do me. I have filled my time here with writing, painting, laughing, playing, day dreaming, self affirmations, exercising, brainstorming, sleeping, and not acknowledging my slave master of an iPhone. There is no phone service here (only WiFi) so I am not being burdened with texting and obsessing.

  My first visit here was during my chaotic reign as “America’s Next Drag Superstar” a few years ago, and my great friend Traver Rains shot the native in the canoe photo shown above. It is my homage to the tradition of the “two spirit” which I relate to strongly. It was an impromptu moment of creative outburst that produced such an image, all against a perfect sunset.

  I feel refreshed already, and I still have a few days left of bliss.

  I will not feel guilty for this indulgence, because life should not be all about panic.

  I encourage everyone( if only for one moment), to stop, refresh, and find yourself wherever you are at. You deserve it. Maybe turning your phone off for the day could help.

  More thoughts later, there is an omelette getting cold next to me.

  I love life, I love my friends, and I am blessed to have so many who love me.

  Have a beautiful day,

  Sutan/Raja

Words spoken from a true superstar. I’ve never respected Raja as much as I do right now.

After drinking actual ground coffee for 7 days in the Adirondacks on vacation, it is so hard to go back to drinking instant coffee back at home.  I’ll get used to it haha
