Being Real

Let's talk about being real for a second. Let's talk about being who we truly are all the time, Let's talk about being ourselves for ourselves, and not being someone else for someone else. My name is Nicole Laree Roberts. My name is Cola. My name is Colie. My name is Cole. I am 19 years old. I don't really like school..well the required portions. I wish that i could only take classes that I want, that benefit what I want to do with my life. I am quiet a lot of the time, but when you get to know me I will talk your ear off. I'm shy, I won't usually be the one to come up and start a conversation. I can be content being by myself and enjoying me. I need my friends though, they mean the world to me..and my family. I'm not perfect. I don't always follow the rules, i don't always meet expectations, and sometimes I even screw up..sounds human right? what we all are? Sometimes i don't manage my money very well, other times i can just save and save and budget like crazy. I love my Hamburgers and fries. End of story. I don't try to live for anyone else, I live for myself and for my God who knows me perfectly. I'm known to not follow advice sometimes and try things out my own way. I am addicted to music, but i also love the sound of silence..I love meditation and going to musical performances. I hate not having a lover, I love to be loved. I love to love. I love to have someone there..and saying goodbye to people is the hardest thing for me..ever. I've been depressed before, I've gone through abuse and I am currently going to therapy. Call me crazy or call me sane. I live for joy, the true and ever lasting kind. Religion gives me a sense of progression and purpose and a feeling of peace and joy that I can't seem to find anywhere else. I've had  times where I threw religion away only to find myself searching for it again. I believe in love. A God like love that doesn't exclude anyone. Even if they are not like me. Even if they are gay. or Lesbian or look different. or have no religion. or have a different religion. Even if they have a mo hawk 5 feet tall and and piercings everywhere.. Even if our standards or beliefs are different. if we come from different walks of life. I believe in the kind of love that has no boundaries or limitations. I like caramel macchiato's  and peppermint mochas. I like dancing. And listening to rap music. I also like classical music, and indie, and pop and rock. I love clothes, sometimes i spend to much on them. I didn't think i was beautiful without makeup until I had perfect skin. So i went to a dermatologist. I thought i was flabby in my bum, so i bought a gym pass. I haven't always loved myself. Now i think that my life, my existence, was the greatest gift that God has ever given me. I love my life and myself, I'm not sure what i'll end up doing or where i'll end up going. But i'm going. And life is moving on. Sometimes I cry, sometimes i don't like to admit I'm wrong. I've hurt people before..only to find I hurt to..and then I quickly try to seek forgiveness and right the wrong. I've been hurt by those closest to me. I find myself singing all the time..even in the shower. I've tried to fit my life to other peoples lives before..only to find that it wasn't who i was. I have no labels i have no category to fit into. I broke the boundaries and i live outside of labels and category's. I love my little sisters more than life itself. We are the best of friends. I admire my brother David who is so..good! and My brother Ryan who is so talented. I have either loved or learned from every single experience in my life and not one was wasteful. I think men who play guitars are sexy. I've always had a wish that i could just know every person in the world.. I want to see the world. I'm spontaneous. And i rarely follow plans. I can't keep a surprise a secret for more than a day. I like yoga and I like exercising. I want to get married. I don't want to wait either. Where are you Future husband? I want kids, and i want them to know I''m not perfect and that i try my best and i love them with everything that i am. Here i am guys, Here is the not perfect wonderful me, Here is my beautiful description of me..I want you to make a not perfect beautiful description of you.

Where is the joy in following the mold.
Where is the beauty in being someone else. 
Why try to embrace someone you aren't rather then embrace who you are. 
Let's all try this thing where we are real with ourselves and others. 
Let's live for ourselves and for no one else. and not let what people think dictate our lives. 

Let's. All. Be. Real. 

Real Meaning of Christmas


I posted this video last Christmas, And I'm going to post this video every Christmas season just as a reminder of what Christmas is really about. We have the gifts and Christmas trees, decorations, lights, Santa and his little elves..Sometimes we get caught of in the gifts and other aspects of Christmas..and we forget the greatest gift of all, the birth of Jesus into the world and his sacrifices and undying ultimate love for us no matter who we are, what we've done where we come from or what we look like. If we can love others and ourselves like Jesus loves us, I think the world would always have that Christmas cheer lovely feeling always .. think about it :)

Christmas Cheer. Happy Holidays. Love On Earth Good Will to Men.

I just love Christmas! I love the loving spirit cheer bug that everyone catches this time of year. I love The happy smiling rosy cheeks of people, warm tea and hot chocolate. I love Christmas trees and Christmas lights I love the giving trees and the other charity programs that just explode to help others who don't have enough to enjoy this beautiful season's holiday. I love the clothes, cute layers and scarfs and mittens and boots. Maybe the cold isn't so bad, and i don't mind it so much anymore..Because its all part of this season that has captured my heart.

for you

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn't mention us
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin' on our heads
But they're just old light, they're just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I'd done alright
And kissed me 'til the mornin' light, the mornin' light
And he kissed me 'til the mornin' light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn't bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn't destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn't mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall

"I loved you first"                                       
Catch a butterfly make a wish, send a thought to someone you miss.

I keep thinking about Alabama, the beach sand in my toes. i miss that so much..I fell in love with the ocean, the sand, the palm trees..everything i fell in love with that place.

Where I lived and worked In Alabama

 My Apartment Building
 My Kitchen
 And living room (the couch was sooo comfy!)
 Living room again
 My Room, I pushed the two beds together to make a bigger bed..but sometimes i fell between them :)
 My toilet
 And my lovely bath tub..it was nice :)

 The pool Area
The pool..I loved it. (We had a gym to)
 My funky magnetic key to my apartment
 My office station
The rest of the office room

I worked a lot..60-80 hours a week.
But it was all soooo worth it.
I loved living here.
i always find myself blogging when I'm supposed to be doing homework. But what the heck, i want to blog. I have found a new love in Joshua Radin..and his musical talents and Andrew Lipkye..and Tracy Chapman..and and and..I could go on and on. Thank heavens for Pandora. I find so much of the music I love through Pandora. Sometimes i don't know where the heck i'm going or what I'm going to do or how the heck i'm even going to do it! But some how some way it always works out. And things that seemed impossible became possible. Ain't it crazy how life works? The time part is especially crazy. One day you're in High school the next you're in your third semester of college. You've loved and lost and your best friend gets married and two other dear friends are engaged...plus a cousin. Love is in the air? A dear missionary is going to be home in T-minus 61 days (i counted today).. :) Where does the time go? I wish i had more time, or that i didn't get tired or have to sleep...such a waste of time. Unless I have a lovely dream then it becomes quite fun. It's winter here..ouch i hate the cold i just want to hibernate every winter. I get sooo sleepy I looked up the weather for Mobile today 80 degrees..I wish i were back there. I miss it so much. Bikinis and beaches and ocean and palm trees...I miss that so much. Last night i dreamed about the beach..Can you tell I miss it? I do..

I miss this.

A tiny glimpse of New Orleans
I loved it and plan to go back

Oh bourbon Street..you smelt of vomit and gross...
I never got to try the Gumbo...but i will when i go back

New Orleans was so so cool!
Street performers everywhere, cool people, jazz music. 
it was lovely.
And if any one is up for a road trip....i am SO down. 
I miss the south like crazy
