It's one of the things I look forward to most every year, and I'm crushed that I missed it. Especially this year, being 21 I would have been able to attend everything. And now I have to wait a whole year before I can go again. But I guess that means I have a whole year to plan. I really want to make VLV 17 amazing. I'm promising myself right now that I'm going to do EVERYTHING. And do it full out.
Anyway, I'm hoping to get things moving again here soon. Happy Easter everybody.

He is widely known as the most popular entertainer the city has ever seen. But his first attempt at Vegas wouldn't lead to this conclusion.
In April 1956 Elvis played Vegas for the first time. 21 years old and still getting used to his newfound stardom he was booked in the Venus Room and the New Frontier Hotel. He was billed as "the atomic powered singer" but his run was hardly a success. Some might even call it a flop.
But Elvis fell in love with Las Vegas anyway.
It took over a decade for Elvis to return to the Las Vegas stage. But when he did, he was a bigger success than anyone could have imagined. Headlining the brand new International Hotel in August of 1969 he played sold out shows nightly. And now he is a permanent Las Vegas icon.
It just makes me think. What if Elvis had never tried Vegas again? What would the city be like now? I probably would never have had any interest in it at all. That's how much Elvis inspires me.
And I think hey, Elvis's first attempt at Vegas didn't work out like he expected, but look at his second. Sometimes you just have to try things again.

Happy New Year! I have never been so excited for a new year. I am so happy it is 2013!
I'm so excited for a fresh start. I feel rejuvenated and revitalized. I feel happy and excited for this year ahead of me. And I'm making it my priority to stay that way. I'm going to be positive every single day.
This is the year I am turning things around. This is the year I am making things happen. I am determined. Now is the time. Now is MY time.
Here's to an AMAZING 2013!

Last night I celebrated my 21st birthday. A much more laid back affair than the elaborate one I'd imagined. And of course I wasn't in my beloved Las Vegas.
But it's all good. I went out and ordered a cocktail with cotton candy in it. I popped champagne and toasted to being 21. To the next chapter in my life. To my new adventure.
And I am DETERMINED to make this the BEST YEAR EVER. I really feel like the timing is perfect right now. All the twists and turns and bumps along the way have led me to now.
I have soooo many things I want to do this next year. And the sky is the limit. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. I am 21 years old. And I am going to make it FABULOUS. :)

When I got there all the girls were excited to see me. Most of them I hadn't seen in a really long time. The directors were happy to see me to. One of the professional dancers I've known forever didn't even recognize me. He was all "you're all grown up I'm just the same old guy in tights." haha. And I got to talk with one of my favorite teachers and tell her what I was doing and she said she was proud of me. So that was good. Overall it was really great seeing everybody and reconnecting. I felt myself coming back to life last night.
It was actually like I WAS just home for the holidays. And that's how I've decided to look at it. I'm home for the holidays and going back to Vegas in January. I'll be starting a whole new adventure. But it was good to have this night of reminiscing and reconnecting. New cherished memories. <3
