Pretty sure y’all have been seeing this around the social media like every April 25th of the year. One of the best movies eva so I don’t mind.

I had a light jacket ready … but no takers. Shucks. Next year.

It’s been a tiring week. *sigh* I was so tired I actually scratched my cornea taking out my contacts. Oy vey.

It’s that time of the week!

Thankful for my roots. It’s just that simple. I love being able to speak another language. That also means I have more shows to watch which is the real reason. Win.

Thankful for Facebook. As creepy as Facebook is getting, I’m able to connect with my families in other parts of the world. With some there’s a language barrier (I can’t read/write Chinese except for easy words and they with English) but photos and Google Translate helps.

Thankful for getting every other Friday off. Having that time at the coffee shop lately … so peaceful. But even if I don’t go, it’s just peaceful knowing I don’t have to worry about work which has been stressful because of a certain B.A.B. (Big Ass Bitch).

Thankful for my sissy … because I get to have Bruno for a week next week. Yay for her having to go somewhere for a wedding! PS. Too excited for her own wedding festivities.

Thankful for my friends. Seriously knowing some of them would go out of their way to help me with something or just letting me know they’re thinking about me. Simple. Super thankful.

What are you thankful for?

[2013] 015/365: Thankful Things Thursday: Blessings

IMG_20130228_181452

I couldn’t pass this opportunity up. Just look how beautiful the sky is. It was pretty much all over Houston and San Antonio (that I know of).

Each day we move so quickly trying to get through the day. To get by. We never just stop to see the beauty surrounding us. This reminded me of it.

It made me wonder why I try so hard to wake up so early every day before the sun comes up. Work. Never really take breaks. Go home. Do stuff that isn’t really a big importance (except the workout part) and miss the sundown. Why am I trying to just get by? Why am I not trying to find my worth? I need to find out why I’m put on this earth because lately I feel a bit lost.

When you lose something, you typically find something. I finally found someone at work I can relate to and talk to and laugh with … every day. It feels good to finally find that person. She’s not on my team but she is sister/cousin to two of my coworkers on my team. I met her one week before she started at this job and we just clicked! It’s been pretty great and we already have many shared laughter. Sadly, she’s not staying forever here (still in college) but it’s good to finally have met her. Hopefully when she goes to her new career path we still stay friends! Fingers crossed.

It’s nice to have a friend I talk to even when it’s days we don’t see each other. Probably cuz we’re both single. I have no clue what we talk about … probably stupid things. But the conversation is never dull. I got to hang out with Samantha tonight. She got her nails redid and I got a cheap manicure ($10). I probably won’t do it again since they don’t last long but it was fun. We got food and watched more Doctor Who.

Chill nights are my favorite.

Time to plan out what to do tomorrow since it’s my day off!! I know for sure Rocky is going in for a deep dental clean so I won’t see him all day. What to do? What to do?

Me time.

Peace and love!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Day is here!
And we have a LOT to be thankful for.
Here’s just a few but not limited to

Thank you.

I promise to catch up on all my missed posts.
Promise. Promise.
Till then, Happy Thanksgiving.

Think Good Thoughts: Living

FTK Co-Rec Soccer is in the Playoffs and we won our game tonight! Whoop! Smile I played a little bit but with shin splints and all it was hard so I was sad but we did great!

And now onto Thankful Thursday!

I’m thankful I got to go to THON. I got to see things that not many people have a chance to see. I am hoping I can go next year to relive it again. Fingers crossed! I probably can’t go with the group again since I would have graduated but maybe a reunion or something?

I am thankful I am alive. I tend to think about a lot of things when I drive. Most of the time when I’m quiet, I’m thinking about something. Driving or not. Good or bad. I drove to a lot of places today that gave me time to think that I almost got into, give or take, 5-7 car accidents. I actually rammed into a stone wall while backing out tonight after taking someone home. Yes, it was that bad.

I’m thankful I have friends like Shayna and Patrica. I’m sitting in their living room watching the telly and typing this out while they are asleep. Yes, another schedule post written in the past! We had a girl’s night. Much needed for all of us. We drank wine and watched Criminal Minds so I could stop thinking about everything while I worked on some FTK stuff … of course. I’m not able to tell them all the little details of things but I’m able to tell the gist since they were kind of there for everything.

I’m thankful for my FSA big, Rex. I bumped into him in the halls today and he knew something was wrong because I wasn’t smiling for the first time. I didn’t tell him anything and insisted I was not sad. But with his hug, tears welled in my eyes. There are so many people who are there for me when I least expect it, yet I’m never able to open up.

I am thankful for my siblings. Given I don’t tell them anything that goes on with me but if I get a text or a message on Facebook, just seeing it makes my day. Especially when they send me cute pictures of their doggies, aka my nephews. I cannot wait too meet my newest nephew! I’m not sure if they decided to change his name or not but he’s two years old. Sissy, Brett, and Ross got him at the pound.

There are other things I’m thankful for of course. The list can go on. But right now, those are what holds dear to my heart.

I hope everyone has a Thankful Thursday! Think of all the good that you have and the bad will slowly disappear, hopefully.

Think Good Thoughts

I am thankful for all that I experienced last night. We had our Zumba FTK event. And it was very successful. Many stressed out days leading up to it but we did it. The Families had fun. The Kids had fun. The crowd had fun. At the end, we collected some really great memories that will never be forgotten. At least I won’t.

I am thankful for the people I have in my life. I know I am thankful for the people in my life every time but they really are the most important things you can ever have. With everything that’s been going on these past two weeks, it’s amazing what someone can do to make everything better even when they are miles apart. Even those that I see everyday cannot detect that something’s wrong. Is that sad? … Possibly.

I am thankful for music for it says everything I am afraid to say. I put my feelings and thoughts into words through music. Though I doubt I’ll ever share it, it’s nice to get it out.

Think Good Thoughts: Being Alive

My dad was in a car accident Tuesday. The car is totaled but that’s okay because he’s okay. He’s up and about so I’m not worried. I don’t know how I would react if something actually happened to him. I am thankful he is alive and well and that I can still speak to him.

I am thankful that five friends that were in accidents today are okay and well. They were all separate occasions at different places in Texas. Please drive safe guys. I don’t want to lose anyone anymore.

I am thankful for those I’ve met in FTK. Obviously there are sometimes people you cannot get along with or they are just horrible people that you don’t want to associate yourself with them. But luckily I’ve found some keepers that I would want in my life forever. Even when I graduate. Hopefully that does happen because we all know how terrible I am at keeping in touch when my life gets busy.

There are only a few people I still keep in touch with in FSA. I am thankful for them because they know me even though I’m not there. I cannot wait until sport practices start and dance practices start. I cannot wait to see everyone.

I wouldn’t be who I am today without some of these people in my life. I am thankful for the life I live for at any second, it can be taken away. With everything that goes on around us, we forget that living is a privilege.

Think Good Thoughts: Life Is Great

I figured I would partake in the Thankful Things Thursday. Which some days will become Three Things Thursday. All depends on how I feel. Since it’s new to me I’ll just do the simple ones.

I am thankful for family. It’s getting harder and harder for all of us to be together so when we are, I cherish it. Every time I’m back here, I don’t want to leave. Sometimes we’ll fight or bicker, but I know in the end, we love each other even when we never utter that word to each other.

I am thankful for my friends. One of my New Year Resolution is to stay connected with the friends I’ve made and hopefully will make. Even though I don’t see or talk to them all the time, we can still hold a conversation. I hope they know I’m always here for them no matter what – even if we haven’t spoken in five years. Which has actually been a case.

I am thankful for Rocky. Every morning my family goes off to work and I will wake up finding him outside my door waiting for me. He’s always happy to see me and does not hesitate to give me wet kisses. He makes mornings not as lonely since he’ll just lay around wherever I am.

I am thankful for having readers. I blog about boring things and posts come out every once in a while during the school semesters. So to have any readers at all is still a surprise to me. I cannot wait to graduate so I have more time.

I am thankful that my family and friends understand my busy schedule. I’ve always been busy but with FTK stuff, I’ve been busier than ever. And I’m so happy they understand when I can’t come home and visit or I can’t go out and play with them. I’m thankful that they don’t get mad at me when I have to reschedule (which is a lot) and they still want to be my friend afterward. Which leads to …

I am thankful for Andrew C. I have been told to build a new FTK website and this winter break was my task at hand.  That and The FTK Blog. Andrew C. came out of nowhere and swooped in to save me. Okay I pretty much asked if he was willing to. Yes, coding is part of my major. But to do it all on my own is pretty much torture. Which leads to …

I am thankful the new FTK website and The FTK Blog is completed. There is still some work that is needed but to have it the gist of it completed, it just feels damn good.

I am thankful pita chips, bananas, and yogurt. It’s what’s been keeping me full when I’m hungry at night. They’re all gone now. Note to self: Go buy groceries!

I am thankful for fans. No, not screaming fans, though that would be pretty cool. It’s been fairly hot in my room the past few days but my Aunt gets cold easily so without fans, I would of already had a heatstroke.

I am thankful I have things to be thankful for. We live life unappreciative of things around us. I guess this is a good way to stop and “smell the flowers”.
