Jessica's Performance



She did such a good job! I'm so proud of her.

cousins


I got to see all my cousins on Mother's Day.

It was lovely!

over already

aaaahhhh. How is May just about over. I can hardly believe it. I really need time to slow down for me a bit. I have papers to write and hard tests to study for. It can be a tad overwhelming. I really don't want the stress right now. Well im going to show you some May pictures. I have a ton but my camera is being really weird and won't let my upload them all on to my computer. It is super frustrating. Well I will just show you what I do have then...

Johnny Rockets

Went shopping and out to eat with this girl.


We had so much fun.



I just love retro diners. They make me want to time travel.
I got to request and listen to my all time favorite song, So Happy Together by The Turtles. That song never gets old it's been my favorite since I was five or six. Well tomorrow I will tell you about what I did before hanging out with Jessi

So much

I haven't really shared anything I have done this month due to lack of time. But I want to share a few pictures before I get started on some math homework.
So here are a few photos of some of the things I have done this month.

I went to the grove after the dreamcenter and got to see part of the Jonas Brother Concert. haha

I ate delicious middle eastern food at the farmers market.

I got to see Jessica's performance at school.

I spent the last couple of weekends with this cute kiddo. :)

I tried on beautiful masks with Gabby.

And I got to celebrate my best friends birthday.
Well that's just a peek at the month of May. I could say so much more about each thing I did but I just don't have the time right now. Only 2 more weeks of school!! I'm so excited.
Well I got to go. So much to do so little time.

Tuesday

My day was not the best.
School frustrated me.
So I got home and cried.
I just want to pass my biology and math class.
This week is certainly stressing me out.
The thing that stinks is next week should even be more stressful. Then the week after that I will hit my peak of stresdfullness with spring finals.

Then I shall relax and have an amazing summer!

Ears Pierced

Jessi got her ears pierced.

I went to the mall to see them do it. Ouch! She says it didn't hurt which is a little hard for me to believe. I'm such a baby.

They turned out great.
(Jessi don't get mad at me for posting this. You look cute)

Crazy school day tomorrow. I have a busy busy wee ahead of me.I better get to bed.

my goodness

I have so many pictures that I want to upload and share. I just haven't had the time. I have been a busy bee with the most random things. I wish I could say next week would be less hectic but it only going to get crazier. Things really won't start slowing down til finals are over on June tenth. Then summer is finally here. I am soooo excited.Well I am off to church...

tired much?

To say im tired would be a huge understatment.
I am seriously beat.
Today was not the best day.
I got my bio test back.
I got a D.
It's really stinks when you really try hard to do well on something and don't succeed.
Then I took a super duper hard math test that I am pretty sure I did not do well on.
Maybe I'm not cut out for this sort of thing.
I kid, I kid.
I know I can do this.
But the propblem is I just don't want to.
Well at least I have all summer to relax.
I just can't wait.

Favorite things

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world is getting mail
Or should I say letters and packages.
I'm not really a big fan of bills...ha

O the joys of reading a sweet letter that someone sat down and took the time to write


I have a ton of stationary although I have written a letter in months but I will be sure to do so when I am in London.

My dearest family and friends will be sure to receive lovely post cards and letters from all over the globe (well some of Europe at least) O I can't wait.

Muffins.

I just made some chocolat chip bannana nut muffins. They turned out perfect. We have been having some problems with our oven so I have been scared to use it these past few weeks but today I felt the need to take a risk and bake something delicous. Luckily the oven worked and stay hot the entire time.

Someone needs to come over and help me eat them all.

They taste amazing warm with nice cold glass of milk.

Well I got to get back to the books (more studing for my biology test) then work at two thirty. Happy Friday everyone!!

Spanish

I need to learn Spanish. Well at least I desperately want to. I could think of about a hundred reasons why I should learn the language.
1. It would be so useful when I am in Jordan Downs trying to communicate with only Spanish speaking men and women.
2. I love Spanish music. (major Selena fan)haha
3. I'm of Mexican decent and it would be amazing to learn the language of my ancestors (ha sounds so lame but it's true)
4. For when I go to Mexico or travel to other Spanish speaking countries. (because I really do plan on traveling the world :)Who knows where I will go after London. So far I've only been to Samoa and Mexico can't wait to add more countries to the list.
5. It's really good for job resume's
6. I think it sounds more beautiful then English.
The list goes on and on but my number one reason for wanting to learn is so that I could communicate better with some of my favorite people in the whole wide world. My Papi and Abuelita. I love them so much and really wish I could easily speak to them.

It would be wonderful to ask my Abuelita random questions and it would be way easier to communicate when she teaches me how to cook some of her amazing dishes.

Funny story... So I was determined to learn Spanish when I was in third or fourth grade. I begged my dad to buy the "Talk Now Spanish" cd from Costco. Finally he bought it. Unfortunately a lot of the things I learned were phrases like.
¿Donde está el aeropuerto? (where is the airport)
I also learned stuff like "Do you know what time the meeting begins?"

Well I am exhausted. Salsa class was pretty tiring tonight.

Cinco de Mayo Party

Last weekend I went to my aunt and uncles Cinco de Mayo party. I got to hang out with wonderful friends and of course all my lovely cousins.
DSC_3354
My little cousins made the pretty tissue paper flower in my hair.

We took some pictures in the front yard because it was such a pretty day.

Oh and Gaby's hair held up beautifully from prom the night before. I still need to share some pictures of that.

Jumper pictures are always fun!

Jackie and I representing Los Angeles in my little cousins hat.

Now I must get back to my biology studying. blegh...
Have a good day!

who am I



It was one of those days where you ask yourself "who am I?" I got super frustrated this morning and afternoon. Sometimes things don't work out the way you dreamed they would. My anger and frustration towards school continues to build. I really really need to change my negative attitude. When the going gets tough I always seem to feel this way. The last thing I need is for stress to run my life. That is not the way to live. So I am going to try to give it all to God.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6

homework

DSC_3173

A few days ago my neighbor snapped a couple of pictures of Mimi and I doing some homework in the front yard. I was laying out under my lovely orange tree listening to The Shins and Damien Rice while trying to understand my math. I find myself studying subjects I neither understand or am even interested in far too often.Remind me not to take Math and Science at the same time again. I wish I had a history or English class this quarter. Heck who am I kidding I would probably be complaining if I had any of those classes. But I really do enjoy history. It is by far my favorite subject and I have yet to take any history class this year.

Ugh...I'm just tired of school in general. I find myself daydreaming about summer on a daily basis. I'm dreaming of swimming and road trips/day trips.

Right now I am studying Biology. I'm trying not to think of the hundred other things that I need to do.I probably shouldn't be blogging...
Well here is one last picture.

Mimi makes me happy when I have to do lame things like homework.

Okay I must get back to biology. Goodnight

We hung out around their house and Gaby got her hair braided.

I had a yet another wonderful day with amazing people in Jordan Downs. Im already looking forward to next week.
