Dear Life

So much has happened since I last briefly checked in. Im kicking ass in school, work is wonderful because I am growing within my agency and learning so much along the way, I'm still single and loving every moment of it :) SERIOUSLY. Caheri's Closet successfully gave birth to a swaggy season 4. My family is healthy ...cant complain. My older brother was released from prison last week.

I'm loving life and very thankful for every opportunity that has emerged.

Im working on a few blog posts ...stay tuned.

music by caheri

I'm into singing, everyone who really knows me, knows that. Ive been singing since about 5 years old. Anyways , i was looking through my old archives and found this little gem. This song was recorded in 2009 shortly after the shooting. If you listen closely you can hear my lisp. Back in 09 my mouth palatalization was worse than it is now. It was harder for me to make out precise sounds. Almost like Kanye on his "thru the wire" track.  The song isnt the best quality because it hasnt been mastered and maybe i would change some of my lyrics to make the chorus more complex but I must say that the message resonates with you because it is so poignant.
Singing is one of the things i do to release stress and to bring calming. I love singing just as much as i love volleyball. In fact in 2003 I was torn in between making the decision of staying and recording a demo with a talent agency named "Tengo Talento" or accepting the golden bear volleyball club offer. 
I chose volleyball, but i never lost the passion for my music.

its been 5 years!!!!

Today marks 5 years since the shooting that exploded my face, teeth, jaw and nearly killed me. I cant take away or downplay the seriousness of this particular day but what i can do is be grateful for what has manifested since that day. I must acknowledge that today feels very different than the last 4 other Nov 20ths. Last night I had so many other progressive thoughts and projects that i hardly had time to be melancholy. That energy has carried on with me today and i believe it will ride with me until the weekend is over.

The truth is ...there is nothing to be unhappy about anymore. I have found the true meaning of happiness and it isnt always driven by how i look or what i wear or how much money i have in the bank. I have learned so much from the real world , the books and the streets. I find cheer in knowing that I am still present to hug my family , I inspire people , I am on my way to become a nurse, and that i am making a difference in my very own community. Overtime those things are what have been the most rewarding.

I thank all of my family and friends who have been there to support me. My recovery would never have been possible without each and everyone of you. I promise that i will never forget who you are. I love you for caring about me.
