Liliana's photo shoot. I wanted to get ready for the photo shoots coming up this weekend and the next.
I need to get one more light on the other side so my models are well lit on both sides of their faces.
Light stands.
And a music player to  get some good tunes.
These are just the few that I liked from her shoot.  
I cant remeber the last time i Posted but i know that it was because I got my Facebook back. And I have been doing a lot of networking on it so I am constantly checking for messages from people. That and I have a real job again. I love it so much! I love having a routine schedule. It makes me do a lot more with my time and it makes me appreciate the time that I have off. I am a personal assistant to the ceo/president at Arseal Technologies and I am friends with his wife. Edith. Actually she is the one that got me the job. Edith seems to be the answers to my prayer. I mean she is the means by which they are answered. I dog started dig sitting for  her puppy cooper when I first came home from my mission and from then on she has just been helping me in more ways than just making ends meet, temporally. She is the sweetest.

I did want to post up the Photos i took for Vanessa and Daniel and their plus one.
tada here they are...








i took some more photos of  liliana! there are a few from savahanna to come.
i am going to be taking more photos from now on.
BLOGGER IM BACK!

Oh yeah I got accepted to go to BYU-Provo! I am super EXCITED!!!!!

My Trip.

Susan is all about self help books.
I like them.
Today I learned that everything is about your own thoughts.
What you think is what you are. You become who you want to be by creating those thoughts in your head first.

And that I have to work on me before i can involve anyone in my crazy head.






"if you are looking for the love of your life, STOP; They will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love."

Don't want to go.

Watching videos on Mormon.org. Makes me feel better. Maybe it was because we would watch them when we were in the call room at the Visitor's Center while making calls... I don't know. But they are pretty inspiring. I want to be better and just get out of this funk that I am in.

I am just going to vent for 4 lines. 
This week I hate traveling. I hate how easy it is for me to just get up and go on a trip to a city many miles away. Easy because it is my job and I get paid for it. But it is no way to build relationships with people. Moving and traveling has made it impossible for me to spend time with someone and not think ... oh wait I am leaving soon... don't get too close. 

I have built walls. I don't let people in. I constantly think... "way too much information. Just say the minimum to answer the question." To ANYONE. (other than vickie)

" No one will ever save you 
If no one can ever find you

I have got to use my camera more. It doesn't matter if I have just a simple lens. 

Am I too hard on myself? Maybe.

The poor guys that fall in love with any Morales girl ha


This is a what we do at my uncle's
Grill. Food. TONS of Food. Plenty of People. Music. Plenty of wasted people. and Singing! TADA.
Don't dare to ask me to change this.
To leave my family or my culture.
It is what it is. 
 Tio Pancho's New Grill! 

Tio Pancho


I had a video but i cant seem to load it. i'll try again later. 

Friday!

I made it a point to write on  this like every day and look at me i haven't written in like a whole week.
Recap.

Last Friday we Went out to Tio Manny's and had tortas! YUMMA!

Saturday. went out to eat lunch with Mom and Dad I had some yummy Platanos Fritos! I was the only child at home for the whole weekend! It was weird. I liked it. It was quite and clean. I love my brother and sisters don't get me wrong with them I have things to do. I would have eventually missed them. They are great. Saturday night I went out with Jason. R-Tomas and side walking chalking at piedmont park!






Sunday. Lazy Sunday. Kyle and Stephanie came over to eat Kyle's favorite, Taquitos! Jason came as well and He stayed over a bit longer after Kyle and Stephanie left we just talked and chilled. We watched my favorite 500 Days of Summer! Umm I like talking to Jason he does most of the talking and I don't mind. A lot of the time I don't have things to say. But I think I am a good listener. He says what is on his mind and he doesn't play mind games. There are no guessing games. It's like a breath of fresh air! Good sunday!

Monday. Went thrifting with Mummsi. Found a great pinboard! I will be decorating it to make it look good and then I will start pinning Goals and Art! Future here I come. Later Me and Jason went to go watch Captian America in 3D. I have only seen 2 3D movies and I have to say... I don't like 3D movie unless they are cartoons. The actors looked like they were animated and maybe it was the movies but I like it when people look real. haha They movie was entertaining. I loved the fact that the movie was based in WWII era. I love the clothes and the life style.

Tuesday. I was a Zombie. Lack of Sleep does that to me.

Wednesday. Went out to eat for Felipe's Birthday! He is now 17? Where did time go? I remember when I was that age... haha. Happy Birthday Little one I love you I have been really tired lately. went running and to go take Jupiter out to walk late at night with mom. I felt so gross! I didn't have time to run until Wednesday. I am addicted to the endorphins from working out, I guess there are worse things to be addicted to huh? ha
mom has decided to take jalapenos with her to spice up her food when we go out. haha!

Also I love this song!



Thursday. Uh cool how my brother got arrested?! Spent the night in jail and had me all stressed out all day. That punk. He's out so it is ok now. Oh did a feather event with Laura. I think it went well. Had Felipe's Birthday cake!



Friday.... I think I'll stay home and keep my bro company. Since he will be grounded for some time. I told him we would become best friends :) Maybe we'll rent a movie and make some brownies.

Friday, July 22, 2011

Thursday me and tyler went to go watch fast five and we ate platanos maduros! YUMMA!


Had a picnic that night and had a wonderful mexican family share their candy bags and cake with me and joseph.  I was grateful for their kind hearts! they were complete strangers yet they shared. 

Today i went to help out Laura and Susan but instead I helped out a bit after we went to watch Tristan and Jordan's dance recital. They were the cutest! I love how when Tristan walked in the whole room gasped and wispered how cute tristan was. haha
Later we went to Tio Manny's to eat and say good bye to Tia Chayo and Abril and here tiny new family.
Oh And found out that Vanessa she is going to have a baby BOY!! so cute i am so happy for her. I will start buying and looking for cute baby boy clothes.

Oh and Today Jupiter made me super mad! I woke up at 7:30 because I wanted to make sure that had enough time to walk him and to work out and everything else that I do in the morning. 
But JUPITER had to roll around in the wet grass/mud in the little open field I found for him. He smelled so bad and he was all dirty so instead of working out and showering I gave jupiter a bath. 
Consequently I stayed in Adidas sandals and work out clothes all day to keep me motivated to work out when i finally got home. It would have worked had i not gotten home at 11. 
By then Felipe came home and we watched Waiting for Forever. I liked the line at the end. "are you following me?" and  i liked how they were supposed to be in San Francisco but they were really in SLC. At the Gateway mall of all places. haha
I will re-watch it because I missed a good chunk of the movie because i feel asleep. ha


it all about love and giving thanks right now.
so thanks to all who follow me on here and i love that i have a space on the web where i can write and post whatever is on my mind.

Wednesday.

On Wednesdays the Salvation Army has 50% off clothes. I miss my chance to look for dresses and blouses to refashion. DANG! oh well next Wednesday and if not I will go to my favorite Thrift store in Roswell. YAY. I miss Roswell but most of all I miss Atlanta/Sandy Springs. Duluth is alright but It's time for a new change! YES! PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! I cant help my gyps life style. Greatful that my dad has a job that allows him to move around to different places where I can meet new people. 

Speaking of refashioning. On Tuesday Mom helped me finish sewing a pencil skirt from a men's blouse. I think it turned out pretty cute and it is a nice spring/military green. I can't wait to wear it on sunday! So I am grateful for my mother and her premium sewing skills. She is so talented and smart at sewing!

Tuesday I attempted to play the guitar once again. Taylor Swift said that when she realized she needed to stand out among all the other girls that wanted record deals she went home and started to learn to play the guitar. She would spend countless hours learning to play the guitar, until her fingers bleed. She inspired me! ha So I am grateful for the guitar that Dani got and grateful that it is tuned so I can practice playing till my fingers bleed. ha

Today I went out to Dinner with Susan Wyatt and Laura. They are my friends and I am super grateful to have them around. Susan Adopted me as her daughter and me and Laura are just like sisters! Her and Wyatt take me around like a pet. haha

Monday I organized some feathers went out to Zaxbys with Dani Felipe and Dad. 
Had FHE. Watched 500 days of Summer and cleaned up my work space. Spent some time with Dani before she left for New York. Wish I could have gone with her!

Love makes things better.

Monday.

Invisible Monsters. 
One of my Favorite books.
The End.
I read a bit from it last night.

WILCO!

WILCO IS COMING SEPT. 29TH!!!!!
OOOO I WANT TO CRY OUT OF JOY AND A SADNESS! I WANT TO GO AND I HAVE NO ONE TO GO WITH!!!!
I THINK I WILL GO BY MYSELF IF I DONT FIND ANYONE TO GO WITH.
MAYBE IF I BAT MY EYE LASHES AT A BOY HE WILL TAKE ME?!

 This was Sunday last Sunday we were watching Julia and Julia. It was alright but we just chilled on sunday.
Monday.
After being inspired to cook and bake. Me and Dani made home made Reeses PB cups. They don't look great but they were super rich and when i make them i will put more PB and a bit of salt.

Tuesday.
So this was Tuesday. The day that my mom found me looking up at her with sad puppy eyes asking her to please send me back to my mission. All my mission memories are in these boxes in a closet. a year and a half worth of memories. They mean a lot to me. How can time fly by so fast. It has been 10 months since I got back. 
I would give anything to go back.


Saturday, July 16, 2011

oh man

so i have pics of the week maybe not everyday like i wanted but a few.
Jamie and Jeff's wedding is today. I will be taking my Camera for that.
I am working on a skirt. I love crafty things.

I have been in the funkiest mood. I haven't gone on a real run. just jogged and walked. What is up with that. I hate it!

more to come.

Monday, July 11, 2011

Sunday.

House sitting at my favorite house. Pool and Hot tub!  Being here kinda of makes me want to play house with someone. ha

Me and Dani have just been chilling and watching Movies on TV. Yesterday we watched New Moon and Eclipse ha. I have had this urge to watch them and I finally got to watch them again! so that took up most of saturday night.

I slept in today not because I was that tired but because I had nothing to do. Church doesn't start till 2. pm now. So i just stayed in bed longer than usual. I made pancakes and then got ready to go to church.
Church was good. It is my favorite part of the week. It makes me feel at home. It reminds me of the mission and how everyday was like Sunday. I miss the mission so much! Recently I have been thinking about my mission and how much I loved it! How much purpose I had, how much I had to do, the people, the study, the closeness to the spirit. I miss it all! So much. Sunday is like going back even if it is for just a few hours. What I would give to be a missionary again even for just one day.

Sundays are good. I miss so many people.
Today I decided that I am going to start making friends. Wish me luck because I have the worst judgement in character. This is why Vickie is the one to make friends and I am the one to follow.

Photos to come. I am trying to take one every day with a synopsis of the day. Wish me luck.
Also I will make a list of something that I am grateful for

Friday. Look at me now

This is my favorite song of the WHOLE week! 
Credit to ZPG who introduced me to the elected. 

The Elected - Look At Me Now

When i was in Daytona Beach I ran outside and I was really bad at it. So I decided that my speed in running outside would improve if i up'ed the resistance on the treadmill. So yesterday I did that. I'm a bit soar. Thats good though because it means I'm working out different muscles :) Working out along with reading my scriptures and drinking water make me happy when i do them and make me feel poopy if i don't. I've been really good about doing them every day since I have come home from school.

Yesterday me and my bro had a Bro. Sis. Date. We were going to go to the cheapies but Felipe came home too late so instead we got a movie from the Red Box and got some snacks from the stores. It was a good thing we stayed in because I had an awful stomach pain, no doubt from my DUMB GULL BLADDER! so It was a good thing we stayed in.

We watched Tron. I was a little hesitant to get it even though people had told me it was good and that Daft Punk did the soundtrack! I guess I'm in a mood to just watch romantic movies. But I told Vickie that i would watch "Good" movies, so I thought Tron was an alright choice. And I am super glad that I saw it. It was super Good. I was all into it screaming at the intense parts and I felt a rush or excitement at the chase scenes. No love story, perfect! The guy in it was smokin and I thought Olivia Wild played her character perfectly. It was a character outside of her normal roles just because she plays someone who is innocent and genuine. She was cute and great.  It was cool to see Jeff Bridges in the movie. Story not as original but entertaining. I would watch it again. I love movie like star wars, lord of the rings and so on I dont know why I hesitated about watching this one.

Here is the Trailer.

Friday, July 8, 2011

Thursday, I'm all about watching movies this week.

I woke up and I did all my regular morning routine. And then headed out to help out Laura. Laura's Pupppy Klhoe has a terminal desises and I went over to make charms to sell for donation so we can earn the money to save Klhoe and get her the ultra sound and surgery that she needs. So I stayed there till like 6:30 or so. I really enjoyed helpeing her out. It was a good cause and I realized that i would love to work for a non profit organization. The whole time I was over there every one was making calls and posting on facebook and other sites about the cause and how people could help. I will put up al ink to it in case anyone reads this and wants to help the cause. Futile because I only have 6 followers. But its the thought that counts right? I took a picture of the charms but my phone wont let me upload it. what is up with that!

So after came home. Made some home made flour tortillas with mom and Dani attempted to capture the moment for me but did not succeed very well. ha



The documentation. ha
 One of my new years resolution is to prepare to be a good house wife. So I have taken the challenge of Cooking (all kinds of food).  And I just love tortillas so I practiced a bit yesterday and I need more practice on making round tortillas because I SUPER good at making funky shape tortillas haha. 
But they are OH SO TASTY!

Then Me and my friend Tyler (who is back in town till he finds another mission trip to go on.)went to the cheapies to watch The Lincoln Lawyer. It was suprisingly entertaining. I would watch it again. Here is the Trailer.


Note:
Tyler and I have been friend since 8th grade and he is one of the few guys that I feel really comfortable around. Me and him have very little in common but we just get along so well. It weird but i love it.

Something Borrowed.

Went to the cheapies with my Mom. Mother, daughter time! Yay!
Maybe I am here to develop a better relationship with my parents. IDK?

But we watched Something Borrowed. I laughed really hard and I really liked it. 

I am such a hopeless romantic so of course I loved it. After watching a movie like that I have to pinch my self and realize that real life is nothing like a movie. Dang! Dang! Dang! Or is it? ahhh :( I'll never know. Love seems more and more like a Fairy Tale. The script is written and they forgot to put me in it.
 OH WELL... NEXT!



I need my bike stat! I want to go out and Bike BIKE BIKE!

My Daytona Vaca/Work Trip.

 
Tristan took us on a nature walk and he got to be our guide.
I love this little guy he is so cute!


This was a Saveteay's beach house and this is how we ate dinner. On news paper Cajun Style!


The Lighthouse. Me Tristan and Laura were the only ones who walked up th 202 steps to see the shores of the Ponce Inlet Shores!

Im kinda upset that my photos came out kinda dark.


I love Movies!

My top 2 favorite movies since I have been home.

500 Days of Summer

The Life Aquatic 

I ordered them from Amazon. It makes me really happy to own them. 
I love movies. 
There are so many that I want/need to watch.

Monday, July 4, 2011

I like change. Maybe a bit to much.

I run away rather then deal with things. I bottle them up, try to ignore them and pretend that they don't exist. And that is why i like traveling it keeps my mind occupied and away from my problems.
Susana and Laura helped me to realize that I am codependent. A good thing and a bad thing. But a bad thing in the sense that  i would rather concentrate on someone else's problem rather then my own. And that i like to help other people in need. But that I am one to rely on other people to be happy rather then being happy because of me. I don't take care of my self first. Explains why I need friends all the time and why I would be in deep trouble if i got close to someone and have them leave me. Maybe this is what i am supposed to learn right now how to be happy for me. that and being honest about my feelings.
 I want a house on the beach!

Sunday, July 3, 2011

I got to even out my tan. I now look native american or like i'm from india. I'm burned. Also i really want to live by the beach and become a local surfer!!

Friday, July 1, 2011

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Learning to do things for myself and for no one else. I dont want to let other people influence what i do or dont do. That makes me happy.

Un dia despues de la tormenta quando menos piensas sale el sol.

went to the pool party at the lakips last night. Kate and Nicole were talking about how some guy in the bacholerett was a real jerk but how the girl really liked him. Morgan got pretty upset about how that is so true. how he has known so many girls that have jerks for boyfriends and how they always go back to them. Riddle me this... why is that true!?

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

No hay mal que dure cien anos ni cuerpo que los resista.
Change.
I am back in GA.
I want to go live in Chicago with Heather. She really inspires me and I would have her as my friend and i wouldn't be bored or alone in adventures.
Me and Heather have a new goal! We are going to start our own business with her friend lesley. This will all be taking place April 2012! So i have to make 6,000 by April but i would like to make them by December and spend Jan-April working one Camera supplies and having fun with my family. Road trip to visit Vickie where ever she will be.
Change. Your thoughts make who you are. So I want to Change my thought to be Super Positive and Always on my New York life to be. I want to take more deep breaths when bad thoughts or sad thoughts come in.

I am shamelessly listening to Taylor Swifts Speak now CD. Im in a FUNKY mood. haha

I will be busy today and its going to be great!

just some lyrics I was listening to that i really liked

"Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body" -Mumford&Sons


"The saddest part of a broken heart
Isn't the ending so much as the start
The tragedy starts from the very first spark
Losing your mind for the sake of your heart" -Feist



"You were right about the stars
Each one is a setting sun" -Wilco


Fasting Facebook.

Fasting from Facebook is good thing.
It is really hard but i think i have been more productive with my time.
I have actually looked at photographs to inspire me. Its helped me to not put off working out longer than i need to. Blogging. I have gone outside more. But I get antsy. I want to call everyone to come and hang out with me and do something. But then i remember that I am not in Rexburg where people live close and where you could call anyone and they are more than willing to hang out because they don't want to be bored either. I have 2 people that live like 15 min. away. One i hang out with already but i dont want him to think I am needy and annoying so i try to only hangout with him like every other day or something like that. The other person has a friend living with him and they do all sorts or manly things and I dont want to intrude on their bro time, well that and I am not sure they want to hang out with me... Oh well.
I need a friend! All i am asking is for  just one. Someone to go with me at midnight to get a snikers bar or to come with me to walk my dog at night. Someone who will put up with my crazy ideas to not stay bored. Is that really too much to ask for?! A guy friend would be preferable because girls are crazy and I can never make good girl friends. Back to the topic of fasting from facebook. So not getting on facebook has made me have to deal with the reality that all my friends are gone! WTF!
However the good news is that Heather Smith is here for the weekend and i will be seeing her and I am super excited to see here and hang out with here! I have missed here a lot. She is in my list of girls that I trust with my life. That list is small (FYI). Chicago is just so far away!
Yesterday I went to institute. I think they gave me what I think to be the worst advice every. Asking boys out?! Ummm... If the guy were really interested he would ask me out. Why should I be the one to ask him out?! Pluse I want a guy who is confident and when a guy is confident he has the confidence to ask out a girl that he is really interested. Just saying...
I need more REAL friends not virtual ones.
Why is Georgia so far away from my Rexburg friends?!

Oh but i start working full time come Monday!!! FINALLY!

"The greatest irony of life is loving the right person at the wrong time, having the wrong person when the time is right and finding out you love someone after that person walks out from your life and sometimes you think you’re already over a person but when you see them smile at you, you’ll suddenly realize that you’re just pretending to be over them just to ease the pain of knowing that they will never be yours again. For some, they think that letting go is one way of expressing how much you love the person. Most relationships tend to fail not because the absence of love; love is always present. It’s just the one was being loved too much and the other was being loved too little as we all know that the heart is the center of the body but it beats on the left. Maybe that’s the reason why the heart is not always right. Most often we fall in love with the person we think we love only to discover that for them, we are just for past times, while the one who truly loves us remains either a friend or a stranger. Here’s a piece of advice: let go when you’re hurting too much, give up when love isn’t enough and move on when things are not like before. There is someone out there who will love you even more, surely then, you will know true love."

13 things I learned because I came out to school.

This has been the hardest semester of my life. If we are talking in "transfers" it has been the hardest 4 transfers of my life! But at the same time I can really say that I have learned a lot.
I went to Arizona with Lucy this past easter weekend. it is a 12 hour drive to Az from Salt lake. So there was a lot of time to talk and think in the car. I have been home for roughly 6 months and i can not believe how fast goes by.
6 months ago I was in St. George, Utah. My last transfer. I was companion with Hna Lloyd and I was freaking out about going home and being a "regular person." But i did what I could. I made goals and plans of how to keep the spirit in my life and how to adapt all the things that I had learned. There were so many things that i wanted to do. The bigger ones were with my family. But i forgot to take into consideration that my family has free agency. I wanted them to do all the things that i wanted them to do, it just didn't turn out that way. And I know now that I was wrong for wanting to impose my will on them. I don't think that they were bad things they were things like, fam. prayer, scripture study, Fam. Home Evening basically more time as a family.
Here is the thing i had gained such a big testimony that those things really strengthen and bless families that i wanted that for mine. But it took me a whole year and a half to gain that testimony. I can't expect my family to just say yeah ok in just a few days. All of this takes time and hard work. And example and someone to help them along the way. FHE worked out great! and family prayer was done more often! YAY!
But i got distracted and I forgot about those goals. Dang. But it is something that i really want for them so i will try to work on that when I get home.
This is just one of the things that i learned. 1.I can not make people do what I want and 2. That I get distracted very easily. I have got to learn to be concentrated on what I really want... long term not short term.
3. There are no coincidences(sp?) Everything happens for a reason. There was a purpose in my going out to school. Had I not gone to school I would not have learned that I LOVE ALTERNATIVE PROCESSES for photography. I wouldn't have known that I loved my printmaking class, teacher and classmates. I wouldn't have realized that I hate commercial photography. I wouldn't have learned how to work in a studio, a light meter, ratios, wizards, lights, gels, backgrounds. I wouldn't have 3 portfolios of photographs to show what I can do. I wouldn't have made such great friends. I would have missed out in the opportunity to experiment and learn.
4. Had i not come out to school. I would have missed out in the opportunity to develop trust in Christ. I did what I could put in the effort that I had strength to and Christ made up the rest. The Atonement.
5. I needed this experience. I needed to learn to make my own friends and I needed this time to develop relationships with the new and old friends.
6. I learned that when i fail. I mean completely fail!!!! it provides a reference of how not to do something. I need references even if they are from my personal failures. And the same thing goes for when you succeed. You need references to say hey this went well because i did so and so....
7. I learned I have a bad judgment in character... the friends that i pick to be my friends are not the best. I need vickie to help me sort out good friends.
8. I need rules when it comes to dating. (this one i am proud to say that I am working on. I have made rules now I just need to practice them)
9. I learned that I need to study more art books and people.
10. I learned that I need to be more BRAVE. Get my stuff out. Get out more, socially. take more photos. say "No" when needed.
11. I learned I need to continue on being better. I Have to work on me. Self improvement. Spiritually and in all aspects of what make me. ME. I have to continue to apply all the things that I learned on the mission.
12. I learned that I am getting back to me. hopefully a more improved better me.
13. I need to re-read PMG as a "civilian"

I love change.
I'm going home.
As much as I love school and love learning.
I can't help but feel and know that I am not supposed to be up at school for the summer semester.
Weird but this will be just as much as a learning experience. Bring it on world! I'll be brave!

Lazy Sundays...

Came home from church. I tried really hard to stay in my church clothes. it was a lot easier today because i wore a simple black dress with ruby red flats ( i hardly ever wear flats to church). That is how i know today i felt lazy.
But after i ate me and vickie decided to watch Grey's and so i changed into something more comfy. Hoodie and leggings. It was a great lazy sunday.  Lucy called me back i talked to her for like over an hour and then continued to finish watching Grey's with Vickie. And i have been in bed since then. I love lazy Sundays! it is the only day i don't feel guilty about not doing homework. Hooray for that!
love, Me.

Just Let It Rain.

"Oh so bold and brave just let it rain."
Working on being brave so i can just let it rain. But it is hard. Sometimes its not easy or fun to be disappointed.
I'm still all about friends!
I like my friends a lot. pictures should explain a lot.

Mi lista.


I know this is the cheesiest song/ video but i have a really grown to like it. 
Today was weird.

Me gustaria escribir en espanol como si fuera un poeta. 
Pero esta buien. el poco de espanol que si se sera suficiente. 
Fui a Dejar a Vickie  a la escula en la mana. La camioneta necesitaba gasolina entonces decidi ir a la gasolinera. Y Vickie habia puesto un Cd que hizo para nuestro viaje a Oklahoma/Idaho. La cancion Amarte A La Antigua empezo a tocar mientras estuve en la gasoliner. Pero cuando me subi al camioneta de nuevo decidi a regresar la cancion desde le comienzo. Empece a escucha las letras de la cancion y de repente y de yo no se donde empece a llorar. Y no fue como una lagrima sino empeze a llorar como si algo trajico habia pasado y nada que ver. Y no pude parar de llorar. Segui llorando hasta que finalmente decide que era absurdo que estaba llorando por ninguna razon. Enserio no tuve ninguna razon para llorar. Absolutament ninguna razon. No se porque estaba llorando. Se me hace raro por que yo no lloror. En la mision yo llore como 2 veces. Pero era porque me sentia como que yo no podia hacer nada para mejorar la situacion en que me encontraba. La ultima vez que yo llore por un chavo fue en 2008. Yo no lloro sobre chavos. No me dejo. Quizas esra mi espiritu que esta trite de alogo que yo todavia no se... 
It was weird. 
Pero Decidi esto.
Yo necesito alguien que hable espanol. Alguien que entienda las letras de todas las conciones que yo escuchaba cuado era nina y todas las letras de las canciones romanticas que mi mama y papa escuchan/ escuchaban. 
Quiero alguien que vea mi familia como algo divertido/interesante. Y no alguien que vea a mi familia y mi vida dentro de mi familia como algo extrano que quisieran cambiar de mi. 
It is what it is.
Amo a mi familia y nunca la cambiaria.

The Photo lab.
Blake,The Lab Assistant.
I spend more time in this room than any other place.
I don't mind it. I like it when there aren't so many people there. That is why I like to go in on Thursdays. Blake works that day and sometimes he stays a bit longer than usual which is ok by me that way i can stay there longer. Thursdays most of the photos assignments are due so theres hardly anyone there. Wednesdays i learned are the worst! There are so many people and they are all so loud. I like it quite and chill with good music playing.
Anways...
I like all the lab assistants, they are awesome. Good thing they are otherwise I would not enjoy spending time in the lab.

Tyler.
In his natural environment. Chem. Lab. He is a Chem. Major and is in the Romney Building all the time. Actually we both are but we are both in the building for different majors. 
Chemistry and Photography.
He is the person that I have known here the longest. I have known him since I was like 15 back when we both lived in GA. 
We have grown a lot since then. But it is nice to know that I have a friend here that I have known for a long time. Ask me anything about Tyler and I will most likely know it. Try it I bet i can answers it.
