A Week

I made it! I survived Winter quarter and now I have a week to rest. Sadly, it is just a week and not more than that, but I'll take what I can get. At least, I have a brand new set of classes to look forward to. I won't be posting until April or later because I want to relax this week without worrying about much. I have a few things I have to do this week so it's more of a catch up week. One thing that I'm not happy about is signing up for a Covered California plan, basically getting insurance. Every time I use the website it crashes or says something that is not applicable to my situation. Hopefully, I can get some sort of coverage soon because the more I wait, the more stressful it becomes. Anyways, here's to a nice, relaxing week.

Tuesday, March 18, 2014


I said I was going to use all of today to write the essay that is due tomorrow, but let's be honest it took me a few hours and I didn't start writing it until the evening. This always happens to me I wake up, I'm ready to do my thing after breakfast and then the symptoms of procrastination start to kick in. I watch a video while I eat breakfast so once I'm done there is always that factor of one more video won't hurt, until you realize that the video you just watched just hurt your pre-set agenda. I began to watch videos that weren't even in my subscription box, and subscribing to new people. I now know that I'm gonna be hooked on thrifting videos once I'm on vacation because that's all I wanted to watch today. Once I realized that I was watching videos of people I wasn't even subscribed to I went back to my home screen to try and tackle the videos that were in my subscription box. All of this was happening while my word document was open to a semi blank page, this time I didn't just have my name written on the page, I also had a few questions I needed to answer in my essay. I had decided to write an answer to each question in paragraph form, that later changed. Once I was on my subscriptions page again I found a video of someone doing a quiz on Buzzfeed and after that my day was ruined (not really my day, but my plans). I was sucked into the vortex that is Buzzfeed; I took all the quizzes I could find, read all the articles that caught my eye, and tried downloading the app. But once again my iPod failed me for I do not have iOS 7.
The following occurred....

Since I was using my laptop all day, once I used Buzzfeed on my iPod I realized that things would be tough to enjoy when things didn't really work.

Although that grumpy cat picture does make the website even better, I went back to using my laptop. Also, my iPod died on me so I had to charge it before I could use it again. I then found one of the best Selena Gomez memes out there which according to Buzzfeed is a meme that can be applicable to any life situation which is true. 
 After hours of playing on the Internet I finally sat down at some time around 8pm and started writing. I finished a few minutes before 10pm so that's awesome. The thing I realized is that I must now wake up extra early in order to print it. Tomorrow morning is gonna be a hassle, but on the bright side it's my last day of Winter Quarter. 
The final thing I want to admit to today is that I eat way too much when I am trying (succeeding) to procrastinate. I only realized it when my sister started telling me to get to work and I went the childish route and walked to the kitchen to make myself a bagel. Today I ate cereal, a bowl of fruit, candy, dinner, a bagel, an oreo milkshake, and hot Cheetos. I am super unhealthy, if only I procrastinated by working out every so often, then I would probably feel good about myself at the end of the day, both for finishing my work and for toning my body. 
Anyways, I need to go to sleep now so I can wake up tomorrow. That's the only thing I am stressing about, waking up once the test is over.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello everybody,
Today was an awesome day because I don't need to worry about two classes since I already took the final for them. I have an essay to write which I am concentrating on tomorrow and then the final for that class on Wednesday morning and then once I finish my friend and I are going to work on the take home final that is due Wednesday night. We already started working on it today during one of our breaks and it seems easy enough there are 10 true/false questions and then some short answer questions which aren't as hard as I first thought, all I need is my textbook and my notes (along with a friend).
Anyways today was a big day for LA because people were woken up by an earthquake. I found out once I woke up and checked my Twitter account that there was an earthquake of 4.4 magnitude that had everyone in hysterics. I of course slept through the whole thing and even though my entire family was awake when it happened none of them felt it because they were either out for a stroll or driving. Other than the earthquake, today is St. Patrick's day which means a lot of green. I wore my green button up that I got for Christmas last year. I didn't take a picture because I completely forgot to do it. There weren't many other people wearing green, but I get it people just don't care about things like that. Anyways, I hope you had a good day even if it is a Monday.

Finals Week

 Last night I wrote about being full because I had eaten so much food. Well, I couldn't sleep because my stomach hurt, I kept re-positioning myself and I never once found a good spot.  I woke up today and ate a light breakfast, a simple bread. Then I went to the market to buy the weekly groceries. For dinner I made myself two hot dogs and they were delishious; they were simple just a spicy sausage, fried onions, and Hawaiian King  bread...drools. I did a bit of school work, but not much because today was a really hot day meaning I was super duper lazy and I was still trying to recuperate from these past few days. Tomorrow I am going to study for each of the classes I have, then on Tuesday I will write my essay, and on Wednesday I will do my take home final and turn it in through email. I will be done with this quarter by Wednesday night, hooray!

REcongress Day 2

Yet again I am tired, but today I am also very full. I ate so much food. Not much more to say other than today was my last day at Congress, we decided not to go tomorrow for many different reasons. So, here are the pictures of my last day at REcongress:
The crowds...
...along with the crowded escalators...
...and the cute merchandise...

REcongress Day 1

Yesterday I was using my Songza app and one of the options of a music playlist was Spring Break which I thought was appropriate for me (in a few days).
Today was the first day of REcongress and it was tiring, so here is my day in pictures. 
I ate lunch under a bunch of palm trees, it looked beautiful.
I had three classes, in my last class there was a puppet named Big Al. 
A blurry close up of the blue fellow.
Playing with a new app while I waited for my friend to get out of her class.
They were offering massages $1 for each minute.
This is the one moment when the Convention center looked empty which was when people had either left or had gone into mass.

That's about it I was going to take more pictures, but I was running out of battery. Anyways I have two more days where I can get more pictures.

 Today I received an email, "Congratulations on your forthcoming graduation", was written at the bottom. 

I'm going to be taking my notes to REcongress tomorrow in order to study during breaks, wish me luck for these upcoming days.

Today was my last day of lectures and next week will be my last week of Winter quarter. In fact, it will be my last Winter quarter ever, unless I decide to go back to get a masters degree. I'm so excited that this part of my life is almost over, afterwards I can start tackling a job or career. 
Tomorrow I'm going to go drive around with my parents and my brother and once we get back home I'm going to start studying. Tomorrow I want to accomplish a few things like getting my notes together, starting my essay, and doing a few questions from my take home exam, as well as adding things to my group's PowerPoint presentation. Now that I'm jotting down my assignments I remember that I have an evaluation that I have to do for my group, thank god I didn't forget. 
I'm going to be studying harder than midterms.

More Tumblr

I am currently looking for new hairstyles... actually new accessories for my hair when I make my braid or bun. Mostly something that makes my messy hair look nice. Here are a few pictures of what I want to do with my hair with accessories.

If I have time tomorrow I'm going to try to clip on my feathers and try to make a braid with my feathers. We shall see if it works or not.

Savings Time

We are at the one digit numbers everyone! Spring break feels so close especially with the time change. I got out of my second to last class today and was amazed at how sunny it still was. I usually get out at 6pm from that class and it is already dark out, but not today. Here is proof...
Look at how high the sun is on that picture.
Arriving to one of the buildings for my last class and it looks like the middle of the day. 

Other than the beautiful weather I experienced today, I got an assignment back from one of my classes and got an A. Score!
I had to wait for most of the students to leave before I could go get my paper. There are just to many of us.
And now I'm just going to sit down and eat some dinner, and a Resse's McFlurry for dessert.

This week is going to be hectic! I decided to talk a bit about the event I am attending this weekend since I will most likely be posting pictures and tweeting up a storm when I go (if I have internet). I am attending the Religious Congress (RECongress), because I teach catechism at my local parish. I have scowered the internet for pictures from previous years since I don't have any from any of the years I attended. The convention center usually looks and feels packed and when you look up at the escalators it seems as if a large amount of ants are going about their business.
This is where we gather at times in the morning and once classes are over. Also there is a live broadcast of all the classes that are held here during the day... to watch it live go here starting this Thursday, March 13th. I'll post pictures of my days at RECongress, so check back if you are interested.

Saturday Recap

It seems as if I spent the entire day with my brother today. I woke up got dressed and then along with my brother waited a few minutes before going to church. We then went to church to teach and we spent three hours together co-teaching. Once classes were over we talked to "coworkers" about carpooling to the event I talked about a few posts ago, which I will be attending this upcoming weekend. After making plans (somewhat) my brother and I walked home. Then I laid down for a few minutes because I was basically in a K. O. kind of state. Then I went over to my brother's house were we decided to watch a movie, we watched Baby Mama with Tina Fey. But before we actually watched the film my sister and I went out to buy some take-out for the family. My brother and I ate and watched the film and once we finished the film we started catching up on a show that I love. The show is on its last season, which is sad because it is the only show I am in love with at the moment, btw the name of the show is Being Human (US) which comes out on Syfy on Mondays. So we watched I think 6 episodes of season 4 today so we need to watch two more episodes to be caught up by Monday. We'll see if we actually do that tomorrow, but if not it won't matter because I'm at school on Mondays meaning I don't get to watch it along with everyone else. So, yeah now I have to go to sleep because we are loosing an hour because of that Spring Forward thingamajig that happens every year, worst part is that these last two weeks of school are already going take a lot out of me. 
Well, that vacation will be well deserved.

Whenever I need inspiration I turn to YouTube and Tumblr, although sometimes inspiration comes to me unexpectedly, I decided to post a few things that I love and inspire me.

Claire is a blogger/YouTuber who's videos and fashion sense inspire me. Her method of editing is one of my all time favorites, here is an example of a recent video that I enjoyed...

For a very long time I have wanted to dye my hair a light gray color, I already have a stripe on my hair of gray hair and I love it so much that I wouldn't mind having a full set of hair in a similar color, even if it's artificially gray...

I also wouldn't mind white or lavender colored hair...

I also love the idea of piercing my ears similar to the following pictures...
I thought I found one once of stars of all different colors that I loved, but I can't find it at the moment. :/

I'll share more in a later post...

13 Things About Me

Today I decided to share thirteen things you might not know about me because although I do share a lot on my blog, I never talked about my habits. So this is a better late than never, way for my readers to get to know me.

1. I wear comfortable sweats and T-shirts on my days off.

2. I never want to go to sleep, but I never want to wake up either.
3. I'm majoring in Television, Film and Media Studies, but I still don't know what I want to be.
4. I rarely carry around a purse.
5. When I was younger I faked my eye test because I wanted to wear glasses. I finally took a test a few years ago and found out that I really did need glasses. 
6. I don't know how to drive, yet.
7. I love making chili and plan on sharing the recipe soon.
8. I have two nephews and a niece on the way and I love them so much. I am the youngest of five so they are like my younger siblings.
9. I want to work at a small boutique when I finish school, at least for a while.
10. I was planning to minor in Psychology and Communication, but I failed a math class that I needed for Psychology so I decided to double major instead. I then wanted to double major, my second major being Fashion Design, and also minor in Communication, but people in my life passed away an I realized that I was overdoing it.
11. I have only had two family pets... our cat, Kika, and then our chihuahua, Lucky.
12. I have gone to Mexico every year of my life mostly by plane, until recently we started driving down there as a family. I can't remember the last time I was on a plane (but I really miss it).
13.  My favorite number is 13 (obviously).

Okay, that was hard. I might do this again one day, but for now I think 13 will do and are appropriate for today.
