The Choice

“Come bother me,” This was probably the most repetitive line from the movie–The Choice. It was cute.

Well, today it’s the end of my winter break. My friend said, that she wants her break longer. Personally I think that three weeks is more than enough! I’m ready for this. Last semester passed way too fast! I think this one is going to fly as well. The longest month is March, but in March I have my Spring break, so it doesn’t count.

In this movie / book, they kept saying that life is made out of decisions. Right now, I’m debating to myself whether I want to volunteer for the Peace Corps or do EPIK which both will be doing the same thing…teaching abroad. But I also sort of just want to settle down…I know! I’ll barely be 22…I have more than enough time to settle down.

It’s one of my choices that I will have to make!

My dear friends, I write to you to express my 12 memorable moments of 2017. I wish all of you guys a great 2018!

1). Leroy Sanchez Part One

My first time that I got VIP passes, and one of the few times that I regretted opening my mouth. It’s totally worth it! I cherish this, because this incident cause the future Leroy to remember me… A FAN!!!

2). Pho and Descendants of the Sun

My sister is always up for random adventures, even if it’s to go to the stores at 10 o’clock at night. Yeah sure, they’re never huge adventures but sometimes those are the best. This year one of the small adventures was trying Pho for the first time. What made it more memorable and it’s going to be dumb, but I got her to start watching Descendants of the Sun and to this day…we are still watching it. We’ll finish it. I promise you!

3). Kay Kay’s 15

We had gone to Missouri to celebrate my cousin’s 15, and there was this moment where we were calling it a night, and I had to helped my cousin take off her 15 dress. I don’t know. I guess it was the fact that five years ago my sister and Kay Kay’s sister (my cousin) were doing exactly that for my surprise dance. Anyway this just made me realize that I’m officially the older cousin that had the opportunity to help and be in someone’s important day.

4). Smoothies of 2017???

On the day of my cousin’s graduation, there was this smoothie place right by the place we were waiting. We were hungry and hot, so we decided to take a little stop at the smoothies. I have no idea what place we stopped by but it was amazing and I want to go again.

5).Thai and rolled ice cream

Simple enough? My first time trying both of those things.

6). MEXICO

This straight up was my favorite!!! Three weeks of pure beautiful sights and so much to learn. There is no words to describe how much I miss this country. From looking outside of the hotel and spending my nights reading, and doing something that was so out of my comfort zone (the obstacle course and ziplining). Also, meeting my family. It was so much fun and I hope I go back.

 

7). Kwon JiYong

Damn it! Looking back I still cannot believe that I did this…this was definitely spontaneous! I enjoyed this joy and I was so close. I’m glad I went to yours even if I couldn’t go to Taeyang’s. Doesn’t mean I don’t regret it! I legit cry everytime I couldn’t hear my fave…”Eyes, Nose, Lips!!!”

8). Leroy Sanchez Part Two

He remembered me!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! A complete meltdown.

9). MY July Fourth

I say MY because during July Fourth I was too busy being a Mexican. Ha! So I really wanted to see some fireworks. We took a day to go to Navy Pier, and along the way we walked around the beach and took in the night like it was ours. Played with the water. Took some cute ass pictures while enjoying our Starbucks. I never would have imagined going at night would be so memorable.

10). Shawn Mendes

We surprised my 13 year old cousin with Shawn Mendes’s concert tickets, and well she loved it. His vocals were amazing!

11). Sophomore Part One

I completed my first half of Sophomore year and passed. I’m kind of happy about the year almost finishing.

12). The Greatest Showman

This is probably going to be last film I watch in 2017. I can say that it was the best choice of this year. If you love musicals, then I recommend it!!! I’ll probably make a post on my other blog site.

Christmas 2017

First I would like to wish all of you guys a Merry Christmas!!! How was your holidays, or simply your day?

My holidays were just an ordinary day with the family. Difference was staying up late and eating more than usual (maybe a little too much). I’m still stuff, which caused me to not eat properly today. Maybe this post will just be pictures…so here are some that I took today and yesterday.

A picture a few of my cousins and I took on Christmas Eve.

False alarm! Well while Christmas Eve was a day to party, Christmas was a day to DIE!!!!  Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating, but I woke up at eleven in the morning. The rest of the day was kind of slow. I watched Pitch Perfect 3! It was good.

Snow

 

Today was the first day it snowed and accumulated…well not really. But it did snow. Which is kind of funny because yesterday I listened to Zion T’s new song, “Snow,” and it described the first snow day (according to the translations).

-A beautiful song!

I can’t really pick and decide whether time is passing by fast, or slow, but listening to this song makes me believe that time is going by slow. It made me feel sad…that one day I could just be gone.

Which it also made me feel quite aggravated I wanted to do something. While the feeling went down, it isn’t completely shut down. I want to do so many things, but all I can do is breathe and do nothing. I don’t know if I was feeling anxious; I definitely was feeling moody!

I ate and did a little bit of homework… and I think I’m leaving it till the last minute because I am an idiot. Anyway all that time and I felt like I needed out…I was suffocating. My sister rescued me. She told me, “You want to do something spontaneous? Come to Meijer with me.”

A trip to the stores was what I needed to feel that I was living. Thinking about it now, it is quite silly. But this week I never felt more alive and curious.

-A Wednesday morning outside of my house.

Have you ever felt like you just wanted to do a spontaneous adventure?

October Craze

A lot has happened this past month…so many confessions.

Chavela
To those who aren’t Hispanic… this was a comedy show and it was a lady who was always confessing about something, and always found a way to make it sound dirty and nasty! (Not always that dirty)

A time to talk and release stress and tears! A time to just look at how fast life is passing by!Or just plain simply a time to get busy. Is that why October is called the “October Craze”, or did I just make that up? If I did, it still sounds good.

I am almost finished with my first semester of school, and that is quite surprising. Tell me I am getting ahead of myself, but I seriously believe that I can graduate a year early. Not only that but today I set an appointment to talk to someone who can help me build a decent resume, and hopefully this summer, I might have an internship. Oh! I got a job too!

This Halloween I was Batgirl! It was a pretty cute costume!

IMG_20171028_150945.jpg
I did my nails, and my tutu. I still have both, and at the moment I want to destroy both of them.

Then Sunday came and my cousins wanted to get their Halloween spirit on and go to a Haunted House…so like always I didn’t go. But I took my younger cousin out to see Madea Two: Boo. We had a good time! It was a day for a fatty like myself to enjoy, especially in Hollywood Boulevard! Plus in a way, we were getting our Halloween on. I love hanging out with her…it makes me feel like an older sister. I enjoy it! It takes me on memory lane from back on my adventures with my sister. Not that we don’t have them right now.

– A little snippet of the movie.

Well from this week and now, school and work are the things keeping me busy in life. In three weeks from now I have finals. Well technically four, but I’m not counting Thanksgiving week. Time to diet because Thanksgiving is coming and I’m going to gain so much weight! Till the next time!

 

 

 

“Be Alright”

Okay! So my first week of school could be classified as something like AWFUL! The first few weeks are awkward, but well if I try to look at it in a positive way then everything was alright.

first week

My promises were not kept…whoops! No I am not excercising. Yes I broke my diet. Yes I swear to god that my first week was awful!

However, I have told you that lately I have been sick and tired of feeling the way I feel. Depressed. Dark. Feeling like I am going nowhere in my life, so I decided to make little changes. Be more optimistic. Love yourself.

That being said, it’s a lot harder than you think. Trying to love myself? What is that? Optimistic? What does it mean? It means to think of happy things and to look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I’m beautiful!”

beautiful
When I was younger, I thought because I was “fat” that I was ugly. Now I think that I’m beautiful! ANY SIZE, GENDER, AND RACE ARE BEAUTIFUL!

So while everything is going down….I’m just looking up!

Sophomore Year!!!

“It doesn’t surprise me when people in the public fall into drugs, addiction, alcohol, depression and suicide. If I didn’t have my faith and I didn’t have my community, I’d be right there with them” (Arden Cho).

As I said in my last blog post if it weren’t for the people in my life, I would have also join these people. No, I’m not saying it to be funny. Arden Cho, I wish you the best in your career and in your life! Check her out!!!

Other than a YouTuber, she is also an actor, singer, and blogger / vlogger. Check out her blog! https://www.eastofarden.com/ 

Anyway, this is my last weekend of summer! It is such a bitter-sweet feeling. This summer has been one of the most funnest (is that a word??? ohh bilingual problems). From going to Missouri, to Mexico, and spending time with friends and family, this summer was probably one of my best summers. I’ve read three books: Unfilter: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me by Lilly Collins, The Choice by Nicholas Sparks, and See Me by Nicholas Sparks. I also started another one…but I didn’t finish it.

This past week was actually probably the worst way to end the summer, but oh well. I really can’t complain. Friday: my aunt came over. Saturday: I have a birthday party to go to. Sunday: is still a mystery.

This Monday marks the start of my Sophomore Year of College. I need to take a deep breath and focus on getting good grades. soph

I also wanted to give an update on the Yes, You Can! diet. Well, I have lost about five pounds so…I guess that is something good! I’m planning on using my school’s gym and workout after my class… at least on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Let’s see if I can keep that promise.

Yes You Can

I guess…I’m ready for school!!!
