I love music that has a great instrumental and is fueled by a little Latin flavor. There’s something so seductive about getting on the dance floor and grooving your hips, while getting coaxed by passionate instrumentals. A lot of tracks out there in the electronica/dance genre attempt to include that Latin flavor, but Ray Foxx and Lovelle know how to do it just right.
Their song “La Musica”, also known as “The Trumpeter” is one of those tracks you can’t help but to groove to. Every time I hear that song I quickly jump up and start swaying my hips. Those are the moments I wish I had a dance partner on call. I’d just pick up my phone and call up some sexy Puerto Rican papi to come wrap me in his arms and sway to sexy beat of La Musica. Ah, that’s the stuff dreams are made of!
It kind of sucks that I don’t have a handsome guy to dance to “La Musica” with (I love being single though, but a dance partner would be great!), but at least I can still enjoy the video and groove on my own. Maybe once I get settled in the next few months, I’ll take up a Latin dance class of some sort. Sounds like it would be a fun experience and I’d love to take my skills to a sexy Latin nightclub. Or at least give me some Brazillian jazz and let me just groove to the music. But that Latin class does sound like fun, I’ve got some researching to do!
I haven’t had the chance to blog in a few days, but now I actually have a clear moment of peace. I’ve been busy preparing for moving and then I started classes, on top of that my hair has grown so much and needed some TLC. So I finally was able to pick up a relaxer, do my hair, and take a nice hot relaxing shower. I’m sort of on this mini-vacation right now, since I’m actually living in a homestead suite until are apartment is ready to move in September 10th. We moved early because our landlord already rented our place out for Sept. 4th. Smh…he could have waited.
This past week has been quite hectic, but no move has ever been just a simple process. I’ve mastered the art of moving around, which is why I’m known as the “urban nomad” amongst the people I encounter in my travels.
Every year I’ve moved from a different house or to another city, sometimes a different state, but the key principle is; I’m always on the move to another destination. During my three year stint in Colorado, I had moved around to three different houses in three different cities in the Denver region. For the most part we moved due to finding better housing and the last place we lived in Colorado was this beautiful luxury loft.
Living in such a beautiful loft with hardwood floors and brand new appliances was amazing, but when we relocated back to Maryland we ended up staying in a different type of environment. It was an okay place, but the neighborhood wasn’t the environment I’m used to. It was surrounded by a bunch of little kids and a lot of foreigners that barely spoke any English. I’m used to living around a diverse neighborhood, but the place I was living before in Gaithersburg just didn’t have the right vibe.
I’ve lived in so many different types of neighborhoods and abodes, from the lower-end housing to the high class luxury condos. I’ve spent my time living far out in the country, experiencing those lovely nights where all you can hear is the bugs and you can lay out on the porch watching the stores. I enjoyed living out in the country but I also love living in the city and experiencing the vibrant culture. One of my favorite places I ever lived, even though I hate Columbus, Ohio, is an area called German Village.
German Village is this artsy area of Columbus, Ohio that has brick streets and some unique cafes. I used to always go to this placed called The Book Loft that has 32 rooms of books. It is one of the coolest book stores I’ve ever had the pleasure of getting lost in. Seriously, you can end up getting lost in a maze of tiny rooms and big rooms in the basement. It’s one of those places that is a must-see for any book lover. I don’t really like Ohio, but I do love German Village and The Book Loft.
I don’t really talk much about Ohio, because I honestly don’t really know it that well. I may have been born there, but as a nomad I’ve moved so much and haven’t placed my roots in one place. But I’m only 20 years old, there is no need to pick one place and plan on staying there my entire life. Moving around so much has been a great experience and now I’m preparing to spend at least a year in Germantown. I’m not quite sure where I’ll end up once I graduate college in the Spring and begin looking for jobs, but I do know that I have my eyes set on a few places.
My life is a book that is being written every day, but I’ve at least figured out that I consider Maryland and the DMV my hometown. It’s one of the places on the East Coast that I always end up coming back to and I think I’d like to sit still at least this year and spend my weekends exploring more cities on the East Coast. But for now, I’ll just enjoy my vacation and worry about the future another time.
