Goodbyes

I know I keep saying I have new places to blog about but I’m being serious. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. You know, with the whole packing up five years of my life here in college, saying bye to everyone, and moving back home to work full time for the rest of my life – it’s a lot for a girl to take.

Graduation? Check! Birthday? Check! Brother’s second graduation? Check! Packing my life up? Halfway check!

In a few days, I’m headed to Destin and New Olreans.

And remember my last post about no go to Hong Kong? Things have changed and I’ll be going there in July! Very excited. I haven’t seen my mum’s side of the family since 3rd grade!

Here’s a picture from my Spring Break road trip with the family. This was at Oklahoma. Balancing on that was tough.

Jenny’s graduation is this Saturday. My brother, Tammy, and Billy will be coming in tonight along with Pluto and Krypto! Whoop! So excited … to see Pluto! Winking smile

Hong Kong Is A No Go

Currently sitting in the FTK room in the CPE. With Patricia and Jakob. We are studying and getting ready for finals. Finals week have started and we’re on a roll!

Tell me why it’s always easier to write a blog post then a paper. Make that two. I have to write two papers. Bleugh. And not to mention, a programming project. Let’s just say senioritis has hit me on the head and it won’t leave.

Tell me why I’m still sitting here after many hours even though I haven’t been productive. Actually I can tell myself that. It’s always nice to be some people’s company. Even when they are busy. It’s just nice to be in the same place with that person. Especially since once I graduate, I will be moving back home for my job. I want to stay with these people as much as I can.

Anyway, I got back to San Antonio Sunday and went to an Urgent Care Clinic. I was in too much pain that I couldn’t take it anymore. Still get sleepy at weird times, sore everywhere, headaches come and go, etc. etc. He said everything’s okay and that it’s normal but if it still continues, I would need to come back. Yucky! Let’s all hope that I won’t have to do so. I hate doctors.

My plans to go to Hong Kong for three weeks this summer is slowly dying. The prices are skyrocketing and there’s no way I can pay for that ticket to and from and pay for food. Not possible! So I’m in a sad mood. But it’s okay. I am now looking at a cruise or fly somewhere closer and cheaper with the mum and include the sissy in it. I’m excited. I hope this happens! Even if it’s not three weeks and only a few days, it’ll still be better than nothing.

Oh and the plans to go to Destin for a few days and New Orleans for one day on a road trip is seeming to be happening since the hotels are booked. No backing out. Excited. Just need to find a swimsuit I’m comfortable with. Right now I’m aiming for a halter one piece swimwear dress.

Graduation is in 5 days. I am no where near ready. Just need to get through these finals!

Everyone else that has finals coming up good luck! For those that are already out of school, have a good week!!

I don’t think I’ve been this happy in a long time. Since high school I felt like everything has been falling apart. But now that I’ve grown and found out that there are some amazing people around me and opened up to them, I feel happier. Everything is even going my way … mostly. And it’s just … great. So great that sometimes you know something horrible will happen … and it did.

I got into a car accident Wednesday night. Unexpectedly. It was all the other person’s fault and he admitted to it. Bumper to bumper. My car is perfectly fine … just a little scratch but my whole body feels like I’ve been hit by the car itself. Don’t worry. Plans to go to the doctor is tomorrow. Oh and I’m okay.

I drove to Katy this morning to make it to Nicole’s Bridal Shower. First real official bridal shower. All the other ones were just friends getting together and stuff. I love my girls and their family. It just feels right. I feel like I belong … finally.

Here is a plethora of pictures from these past few days. Enjoy.

After an interview with a company in Houston, I went to go buy a present for the Bride-to-Be, Nicole. My face of, I don’t know how this works. There are too many things on the list. But I figured it out and it was kind of fun! (Oh and the interview? Let’s just say, I’ll be a grown up soon enough! Winking smile)

With Jakob and Andy. It was Andy’s birthday. But he doesn’t celebrate birthdays. So we went out to eat with a big group of people then the three of us and Marisol went to Kona Grill and had Sake Bombs! Since it was his 21st, we had to go all out! So much laughter. So much memories.

With Christina, Apurva, Carl, and Andy in the FTK room. Just having a fun time taking random pictures on the Mac. It feels great not having to worry as much about finals as everyone else. Senior status. Open-mouthed smile

Jenny brought home Roc. Roc is Jenny’s friend’s dog. He’s been staying with us the past few days. Such a chill beagle mixture!

At Nicole’s Bridal Shower. Country Western Themed. Cute little snacks. There were even cowboy hat cookies, delicious punch, strawberries with whipped cream, etc. I just didn’t get a picture of everything because I just wanted to pig out!

With Nicole, Bride-to-Be. I love her! Don’t mind me. I just drove three hours to come to the party and I didn’t have time to fix myself up.

With Nicole, Stephanie, and Michelle. Pretty much all the girls I ever hang out with from back in the high school days. I love them so much! No matter how far apart we all were from one another, Nicole – Texas Tech, Stephanie – University of Texas, Michelle – University of Houston, Me – University of Texas at San Antonio, we were able to stay friends and keep that bond.

Growing Up

I was suppose to start Paleo on May 1st but a sea of events made me change my mind. It was Andy L.’s birthday and although he doesn’t celebrate his birthday, we went out for dinner and drinks because he was turning 21. Only the right thing to do, right? So how can I start Paleo when I would have to drink beer. And when I say have I mean, want to. We had dinner at Cheddar’s with a big group of people and then ended up going to Kona. There was only four of us total, but that’s all you need to have fun!

I got into a three hour plus deep conversation with someone and I realized that timing is everything and I don’t have it. I never have it. Paleo was the last thing on my mind that day.

Jenny is the worst when it comes to picking movies. She picked Haywire just because Channing Tatum is in it. Really? He was only on screen for at least 15 minutes.

Travis left few seconds before the movie was over. Let’s just say we were lost pretty much the entire movie. Travis and I texted the whole time. Yep … worst movie ever. Don’t watch it.

We were suppose to watch Hugo but Jakob came over and we watched The Cell instead. It’s a weird movie but very sad if you think about it. Actually I watched the movie. He fell asleep and is still asleep on the couch. I tried waking him up and it didn’t work. How do you wake someone up that is a heavy sleeper?

**********

Did I mention I was graduating? Yep. Next Saturday. Next step … into the real world.
