Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno

Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno

Green Porno? What is the first thing that pops in your mind? How can something like Porno be described as Green? What is a Green Porno? 

I am not sure when or what I was doing at the time, but I do remember that I was watching YouTube and I decided to search an actress, Isabella Rossellini. I remembered her Continue reading “Isabella Rossellini’s – Green Porno”

Gratitude- Day 11 and 12

Gratitude- Day 11 and 12

Another double post! Enjoy!

Day 11

“I am grateful for the study times with RJ”

Sometimes getting out of the house is just what I need. It’s even better to have RJ to keep me company. Staying stuck in the house really does take a toll. So go outside, get some fresh air.


Day 12

” I am grateful for writing poetry”

I’m not the best poetry, but we all can’t be. I’m learning every day new ways to improve my writing. Sometimes I have really bad days or the first draft is terrible. Nothing is perfect the first time. Practice leads to improvement.

Gratitude – Day 9 and 10

Hello!

Soooo this weekend has been really great! Sorry, I didn’t post daily but you’ll find out why!

Day 9-10

“I am grateful for Sophie!”

This gratitude log is for Friday and Saturday! My best friend came to Austin to visit me for my birthday! I know Tuesday last week was my birthday, but it wasn’t until this weekend that I could actually celebrate it to the fullest!

It was so fun and exciting to see her again! We missed each other so much and it’s always so amazing having her here!

I really needed this to brighten my week! College has been so stressful and Sophie definitely made everything better! I can’t wait to see her again this upcoming break!

Gratitude – Day 6

Gratitude – Day 6

“I am grateful for today, my Birthday!”

 

I just want to keep this post nice and short. I know this might be a little late but I wanted to make this post.

Although my birthday was filled with school and exams – it was also filled with people that I love and that care about me.

Don’t even waste your time feeling down or stressing about something in the past or to come. The future is ahead and there are moments to be enjoyed. 💖

I had such a great and beautiful 21st Birthday!

I love everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful night!

National Gratitude Month

I decided to challenge myself 30 days of Gratitude…

November is the month of Gratitude and many other holidays and events that are important in my life. I decided that I should probably start something new and fresh for the blog that is also good for my self-worth and growth. I’ve been feeling down a lot and filled with anxiety. I believe this stems from the overload of stress from college and reading and constant assignments left to right. I need to step back and reevaluate myself. I don’t like this stress, I want it to go away. I thought that by starting up a daily gratitude post for the month of November would be a great way to start. I have never done this before but I have kept a gratitude journal once, I never finished it.

November was the first day of Gratitude but I was not able to write things down. So for today, you get two doses of gratitude!


Gratitude November 1st:

“I am grateful for my boyfriend”

November 1st is his birthday! Happy Birthday!

He is one of my best friends and one of few people who really know me. He cares for me and makes me laugh. He reminds me to Continue reading “National Gratitude Month”

My Obsession With TWIN PEAKS

My Obsession With TWIN PEAKS

I AM A FAN GIRL FOR THE 1990’s SHOW TWIN PEAKS….

I’m not sure exactly when I started watching it, but I was looking through Hulu trying to find a new series to watch. That is when I stumbled upon Twin Peaks. Now I vividly remember going through my mom’s movies and TV show collection and playing a file called Twin Peaks, and I was so stupid and young with a low attention span that I didn’t even make it out of the long intro theme. But this second time I decided to watch it…

Part 2: The DAD playlist

Part 2: The DAD playlist

I made a playlist inspired by my Dad’s taste in music.

One day while studying for an exam a thought came to me. I was listening to music and I realized how much my music taste has evolved and grown. I had music tasted that ranged from my mom to my dad. The time I would spend with them I remember that music was always involved in the background.

I don’t think my had has ever played an instrument in his life. I also wonder how my Dad, who can’t hold a tune, can produce a child like me that has sung all her life. But I will say, my Dad LOVES music. I think music helped him in so many ways in his life. He is in the military, and I remember him telling me that he downloaded a ton of music into his iPod so he can listen to it on trips or on the ships he had to stay in. Sucky thing is, he never had the name of the artist on the song files so it took him months until he could find the name of the song he fell in love with at the time. I remember that whenever he would visit he would show me a new singer or band. That eventually became the soundtrack to our time that we got to spend together. He would get my computer and download every song he had on his hard drive to my music library. Sometimes we would play a song so much throughout the day we would call it our Song of the Week, which inspired my SOTW that I write on this blog!

Music is such a wonderful memory maker and influencer. Some of these songs make me feel very nostalgic and wish that I could hear it again for the first time. I tried my best to pick all the best songs and I only wanted to select a certain number of songs. Some of these songs were played for me as a baby, some in my teen years, and some in my adult years.

Thank You Dad For The Music!

Part 1: The MOM playlist

I made a playlist inspired by my Mom’s taste in music.

One day while studying for an exam a thought came to me. I was listening to music and I realized how much my music taste has evolved and grown. I had music tasted that ranged from my mom to my dad. The time I would spend with them I remember that music was always involved in the background.

My mom played violin in her younger years but other than that, her love for music came from bands and music and experiences her life. I remember being in the back of the car and going through albums my mom would play. She kept a purple CD wallet thing on the floor of the car and she had so many burned CD’s. Being in the car while music played full blast was the best. I was so young, I had no idea what some of the songs or artists names were. It wasn’t until I actually got a device that I could download music on, that I learned the names of the songs and artists that were with me since birth. Later, my mom got Pandora and that’s where a lot of my mom’s new music came from. A lot of this artist on this playlist I made have inspired my taste in music, some more than others. I know for a fact that everytime my mom recommends me a song, I will more than likely like it.

Why do I write about food?

Why do I write about food?

A short post where I ramble about writing…

I have come to the realization that I like to write about food. A lot.

Through my poetry, I almost always have something to say that involves food. It happens through a metaphor or a imagery that I come up from the start or serves as the centerpiece of my poetry.

There is something about food that I love. Doesn’t food make people happy? It can be rewarding, it can be uniting, it can complete, it can serve. Food can do a lot of things in our life. I know for a fact that when I get out of a class or it’s the end of the day, I am so grateful to finally be able to eat. It can either be with a friend or by myself, food is something that refreshes and fulfills an empty stomach.

I usually write about fruit. It’s easier to create a metaphor for the type of fruit I’m using. Since high school, I’ve always had an obsession with fruit. I would eat apples, strawberries, and bananas almost every day to maintain my sweet tooth. My best friend even decided to call me Babyfruit because of how much I would eat them.

WHYDO I WRITE ABOUT FOOD_

Now that I think about it-I don’t have a full explanation why I use fruit or food in my poetry. It is one of the few things that has attached to my writing. I don’t give myself much credit because there is so much to improve on my writing.  Writing is a process and always needs revision. Revision is the hardest for me, besides starting a poem.

I’ve been trying to observe my writing patterns and my stress has been prohibiting my creativity and inspiration. I’m in a stump where I have no idea what to write about. I still have not written a short story!

But, writing takes time! I have much to learn.

Organize With Me: Desktop

Organize With Me: Desktop

Check out these step of how I colored my files and cleaned my desktop!

I wouldn’t consider myself a messy person, although sometimes times I do get pretty cluttered. One thing I would always do is have all my files and icons covering my desktop, and I don’t even want to tell you how bad the Finder was. Besides that, I decided to use my files and folders more efficiently.

1. Trash Crap.

Documents, pdf, images of your favorite artist you used to like need to go in the 🗑. It’s 2018, time to clean out those old high school essays and those from 2 semesters ago. However! Save essays from last semester, you never know when you have to write a thesis statement again, old writings can help with that.
