So many people think resolutions are overrated…a waste of time. I on the other hand, think that if chosen properly they can be very successful. It can’t be too ambitious, and it shouldn’t have a time restraint. A New Years resolution should be something small that can be worked on everyday, and will have a lasting effect. With that said, my resolution is to push. I’m...
I tell my parents I’m freezing in my room. I want an electric heater. They say it’s too expensive, and it’s not that serious. I should just grab another blanket and I’ll be fine. Mean while I go to bed with 2 layers of clothes, 2 sheets, and 2 comforters…. and I’m still cold. Months pass* My mother is forced to sleep in my room because of guests. The next day...

During this vacation I’ll be organizing my academics in various ways. I have calls to make, emails to send, and some applications to fill out. Hopefully by the time Spring semester comes around most of my issues will be resolved or at least close to being resolved. I’m not worried, I know if this is meant to be it will happen. If not then I’m sure there are better things coming...
“You don’t know me, but you should know your wife. She’s not that type of woman.” -Why Did I Get Married Too? Why is this concept so difficult for some men to understand?
Thinking about writing in my journal. There’s a lot I need to come to terms with, and there’s no better way to do that than writing. Besides there’s no need to ruin anyone’s holiday spirit with my grumpiness. Now to choose one that’s just right.
It’s actually becoming a burden going every week and being commanded to do certain things. I now understand why some people would like to leave.
It’s interesting to see how people try to one up each other. You don’t realize they’re doing it unless you are familiar with their quirks. It would be funny if this was Family Guy but it’s not…
The night was beautiful. I laughed, I felt special, I was given an opportunity to experience a kind of attention that I hadn’t felt before. Unfortunately this couldn’t be taken any further. Our personalities and interests were too far apart. I of course was well aware of this but I had hopes and thought there’s no harm in trying. I was clearly wrong. Now I’m having a hard...
First time since September, I have time to do what I want. So I’m going to turn off the lights, snuggle up under the covers, and watch Friends with Benefits. Oh and I’ll have some Chocolate Hazelnut Creme Filled Pirouettes to keep me company.
Give and Take
After seeing what it’s like on the other side, I appreciate what I had much more. It’s nice having that instant, yet temporary satisfaction. But having a solid connection with someone is much more full-filling. I suppose it can be equally satisfying…but that all depends on what you’re currently looking for. This is all very new, and interesting to me....
Clearing My Mind
I’m starting to think that I haven’t exactly let this go yet. I like holding on to moments. I have horrible memory and I’m afraid of deleting everything and throwing everything out, then just forgetting it all. It was a good part of my life I don’t want to forget it. But clearly everyone is moving on but me so I guess I need to start taking some steps forward. So I’m...
I was nervous about my road test because it was 3 days away from Christmas. If I failed it I would be in a slump for the next two months until I took the test again. But thankfully I PASSED! I should have had this like 3 years ago, but I don’t care, I have it know and I plan on putting it to good use! My trips to IHOP will increase dramatically in 2012.
Yesterday was my last day student teaching. It was an incredibly gratifying experience. The second grade class I student taught in had a Winter Celebration planned out for their parents. They sang New York State of Mind by Billy Joel and the Greatest American Hero theme song Believe it or Not by Mike Post. They had hand movements to go along with it as well. It was the most adorable thing...
I just have one more final to study for. That means two more nights of very little sleep. On the bright side I’ve had like 5 days of lounging around. Can’t wait to really be on winter break, and enjoy my free time.
I’m not very good at dancing it, but whenever it comes on I just have to get up and dance. Same goes for merengue and bachata. Especially the old songs our parents listened to when we were really young. It’s crazy, the minute I hear the beat my feet start moving, no matter where I am. If there’s one thing I’d love for Christmas is to dance with my dad. He has such a cool...

I have tons of stuffed animals, all of which my mother wants me to get rid of. She clearly doesn’t understand how hard it is to part with a piece of your childhood. But I suppose they would do more good in the arms of a child, than in the corner of my closet. So in the spirit of Christmas I suppose I can sort through them and pick my favorite 5, or 7. I’m not making any promises...
This semester I’ve become incredibly passive in every single aspect of my life. I never gave up on anything in particular but I have settled. I always thought that by my junior year I’d have everything in order. I’d know how to manage my time, money, and stress. Unfortunately that hasn’t happened. This semester was by far the most stressful. I’m actually shocked that...
So half my closet is on my chair. A whole semester’s worth of books are spread on my floor. And I’m just listening to Pandora. I need to clean up already.
The 21st will be my last day of this torturous semester and I truly can’t wait to take care of myself. I’m going to be selfish this break and only think about making myself happy. 1st task…..talk to my grandma about her novelas.
I hope you’re happy. You take your time picking them out and making sure they are worth your time, and affection. So it must be a great match. I hope it’s better than what you had…actually I’m sure it is. You deserve something beautiful.
People always say they don’t care what others think about them. Well I don’t know how they do it, because I definitely care about what others think about me. My actions don’t only affect me. If I’m seen in a bad light, so are my parents, and the people I spend time with. I over analyze everything I do because I don’t want people talking behind my back because I...
Is the most ingenious thing ever.
