Anyway, several years ago she talked about this book called The Secret all the time and had bunch of shows about it. I never read it because I was a broke college kid who would rather spend money on Forever 21 tops than books, but the gist I got was that you should envision yourself doing great things and you will end up living the life you envision. So today we're gonna give it a try.
Ladies, I want to hang out with Aaron Paul in L.A. this weekend.
What? You don't know who that is? Well, if you remember my love of Breaking Bad then this post will make a lot more sense. Basically Aaron Paul plays Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad and he seems like the coolest celebrity ever. His character says "bitch!" all the time, so the actor will say it to people who run into him in the airport or whatever. He is having a contest right now and the winners get to go to LA on his dime to watch the BB finale with the cast. How cool would that be? And no, this post isn't part of me trying to win - it's a random drawing - but it IS me trying to envision it happening to see if The Secret works.
Okay, so in the name of envisioning, here is how it would happen. Aaron Paul would call me himself and be all "Bitch! You're going to LA!" I already told my boss that there is a tiny likelihood of this happening so I can take a few days off work next week, easily (yes, seriously, I told her). So I would freak out because I have nothing to wear and probably tweet like a mad woman for fashion advice and end up wearing like, jeans and a t-shirt and Target shoes but whatever. Andrew and I would land in LA and be greeted by Aaron Paul and his wife, also named Lauren, and then we would go to some cool hotel like the Roosevelt. Isn't that the one that Lindsay Lohan lived in while she was having all her issues? So yeah, we would go there and order room service and hang out with
This is pretty much what it would look like, but I would encourage Andrew to dress up a little more. We'll be the four best friends that anyone could have!
Part of the prize is that you get to cook something in an RV with him, so I would want to cook something easy like mac and cheese but Andrew would make it difficult and want to make coq au vin or something ridiculous but I would go along with it so we could hang out with AP more (can I call him that, do you think?) Then we would get to go to this cemetery and watch the pilot and the finale with the cast. I would ask them all riveting questions, I'm sure. I would have to ask Dean Norris how he went from a great show to Under the Dome (bleh, that show was terrible) and RJ Mitte what he thought of ol' Miley (he used to be on Hannah Montana... why do I know this but I can't point to major countries on a map?). Mostly I would want to follow around Aaron Paul and wife Lauren because they are adorable (yes, I have stalked her Instagram to prove this, and IG doesn't lie). Oh and I would watch the finale and probably freak out and then watch all the actors watching themselves. So crazy. Then we would party all night and while we were hanging out, Andrew and I would impress everyone with our amazing food knowledge and the whole cast would promise to call us if they were ever in Texas. Yeah, that's how I would want it to end.
So, Universe, now it's up to you. I am hoping that The Secret wasn't just a load of junk and by clearly envisioning winning this contest, I am making it so. Somehow I'm doubtful, but you never know...
(Also, I am writing this post Wednesday night. Winners are chosen in a few hours, so this may be a moot point by the time you read it. Oh well, at least I tried!)
