we're lucky in life if we meet someone that imbues us with passion and vigor. someone who has complete faith in our abilities and believes we will succeed even when we think we'll fail. i met that person, but sadly she's moving to paris to take europe by storm. for all the advice and hope she's given me, i know that she will triumph in all her goals and she has the vitality to push on even when things get tough. being the one to introduce me to this song, and being my favorite california gurl, i am posting "california gurls" by katy perry in her honor.
