Promise To Try Part 1

Presenting Madonna:

Day 2: Literally channel Madonna and get this thing going.
Defined by lace tops, skirts over capri pants, fishnet stockings, jewelry bearing the Christian cross, multiple bracelets, and bleached hair, Madonna's look became a female fashion trend.

Day 3: Be honest about sex, relationships, all the crap I tend to shy away from because I'm shy. Yes I am, shush I do a very good job of hiding it but it'll be therapeutic to just come out and have all my thoughts on the subject out. I mean, it's not anything wrong, is it? If you answered yes, you probably should stop reading now.
"She performed the song, "Like A Virgin," at the first MTV Video Music Awards, wearing her then-trademark "Boy Toy" belt. The performance is considered as one of the iconic moments in the history of MTV, as is the album Like a Virgin"

Day 4: When I was younger I always wanted to act. It was my big dream, like every other little girl. Well, the ones who didn't dream about getting married or being a princess, we come three categories. I acted all through school and even had the lead in a musical, thus sort of living out my lesser known rockstar dreams, however I came to the swift conclusion that I suck at it all and need to stay far far away. I don't really want to act anymore but I do wish I coul audition for something and maybe see if I could do it. So why not? Audition for student film or something I find (back off craigslist weirdos, I'm doing this the sensible and smart way) and just go for it.
"Madonna entered mainstream films beginning with a brief appearance as a club singer in the film Vision Quest. Its soundtrack contained her second US number-one single "Crazy for You". She also appeared in the comedy Desperately Seeking Susan."

Day 5: I hate getting my picture taken. It literally drives me to the point of tears sometimes. I do not photograph well. And I most certainly would not photograph well nude. So that's not gonna happen ever. But I always admire those fashion blogs that chart day to day outfits of girls and I've always wanted to do that. I even tried to set one up but deleted it before it got going. So I'm going to do a weeklong of my outfits and fashions because I do have a weird/interesting style, if I do say so myself, and I should chart it. No nudity though!
"In July 1985, Penthouse and Playboy magazines published a number of nude photos of Madonna taken in New York in 1978."

Day 6:Along with the sex talk, I should do a "spiritual," talk. It's hard to have liberal friends without them, at some point, damning religion or certain beliefs. I've skirted the issue because I don't want to stir up anything but the truth is, I do believe in something and there's no shame in revealing or talking about it. So I will.
"She debuted her new song, "Like a Prayer" in a Pepsi commercial and also made a music video for it. The video featured many Catholic symbols such as stigmata and burning crosses. This subject matter led the Vatican to condemn the video."

Day 7: Write a book. This is such a big thing and such a short sentence that I don't even know how to explain it. But I would like to one day write a full-length book.

Day 8: I want to just sit down and make my brilliant t-shirt. I've had an idea forever, and Iron Maiden t-shirt but with their mascot Eddie holding a Turkish yogurt drink called ayran and the band name reading Ayran Maiden. It's awesome and I bet I could sell it in Turkey where we don't much care for copyright laws.
"In 1992, Madonna founded her own entertainment company, Maverick, consisting of a record company (Maverick Records), a film production company (Maverick Films), and also music publishing, television, merchandising and book-publishing divisions. The first release from the venture was Madonna's first publication Sex, a book consisting of sexually provocative and explicit images photographed by Steven Meisel."

Day 9: I am going to cut Egg, my kitty's, nails without getting mauled. She's the closest thing I have to a baby and will be for a long time (KNOCK ON WOOD RIGHT NOW). She intimidates me because she hates being touched in the rear parts, because she's a lady, but I will not let my cat be my master.
"On October 14, 1996, Madonna gave birth to her and Carlos Leon's daughter, Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon."

Day 10: I am going to use my "Teach Yourself Hindi," to teach myself Hindi. I've had it sitting on my dresser for the past year and a half and damn it I will learn elementary Hindi and the Devanagari alphabet. This will be hard, but I will do it. And thus we enter the India portion of Madonna's and my life.


  1. For the spiritual talk, I am more than happy to talk with you. I am not quite as liberal as the majority of our friends (especially my boyfriend) and while I don't have terribly unique religious beliefs, I do have opinions, I don't bash religion necessarily, and I have researched some other religions aside from Christianity (how I was raised). So, feel free to bring it up. :-) Plus, I am always open to learning more and changing my beliefs.

  2. firstly, yoga ain't so bad! ;) secondly, once you teach yourself hindi wanna teach me? i've had to learn a ton of sanskrit for my training and think learning hindi is the next logical step.

    so awesome to see this project taking form!

  3. I was thinking more that it would be some sort of essay I wrote Em. But feel free to comment and discuss when I do produce it.

    Sure Kate! Then we can converse in secret and confuse everyone haha.
