Less than 3 months until Spain.
Less than 2 weeks until my birthday.
Gipsy Kings this Wednesday, too.

Life is busy but good. I never get online anymore, but I got a Blackberry and now I'm obsessed with Brickbreaker. I dropped my old phone in my fish tank when I got a new fish that I named Roger. He's pretty. This cold weather is nice and so is life and a glass of good wine. Screw Valentine's Day...I love Jason.

Today has been such a rollercoaster of emotions but I think it finished on a higher end. Balance balance balance.

Halloween: I am SO excited for Halloween this time around, more than last year 'cause I didn't dress up or go out. But Janell and I gathered our costume pieces from Ross and TJMaxx today. Gonna hang out with friends, going to the park by my house that has an awesome haunted house every year, then hitting up The Vagabond downtown. Then Jay and I leave for Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens on Saturday so I am PUMPED! We also carved pumpkins :]

Elections: Can't wait for this to be over because there is much more drama ahead, regardless of who is elected. I'm voting tomorrow morning. First time so I'm pretty psyched.

Work: A few people got laid off at work today and that really brought me down :/ all people I work closely with and who have been there since I started. It's already weird without them.

Writing: Started covering stories for the Florida Catholic again, so that's exciting. I'd like to get into more diverse mediums but I gotta work on that. Building up that portfolio.

School: A month and a half til the semester is over...unbelievable! Doing pretty well so far, but I have a lot on my plate. I love my classes.

Me: Got over this terrible cold recently and I'm feeling normal again. Also started working out again so I feel good. The weather these past few days has also been fantastic and I've embraced being outside more. I'm alive. I feel it.

a question...

If you were able to explain on a scientific level (cells/molecules) why a painting was beautiful (how your brain processes/interprets why it's beautiful), would it decrease your enjoyment of it?

Please elaborate.

I haven’t this updated in forever and although life is eventful, there’s nothing all that fabulous to report! Hanging out, going to school, still working at Comcast.

The weekend before school started, I went to Sanibel with my boo and his friends! The water was nasty but it was three days of good fun with good people. Ate a lot, learned some new card games, played Wii Sports, rented a pontoon boat, got a little tan and kicked ass at mini golf. I also got two injuries [cut my foot on something while jumping off the boat then scraped my knee climbing onto the boat] but this is not surprising if you know me because you know what a klutz I am.

It was a great way to kinda close off the summer before starting off another semester at FIU hahah. Speaking of the devil, I love it so far, minus the 40-minute drive [due to traffic] to/from Biscayne 3 days a week. But it’s worth it :]

I’m glad it’s a long weekend but I wish the weather were a bit nicer. Yesterday was a great day though. Jay came over and we watched movies and ordered in and just relaxed. Later I went to Janell’s house until 3 AM for tiki torches/karaoke/coffee/movies/dating videos/Katt Williams. I love my baby girl. I’ve also realized lately that I’ve become less of an “alone-time” person and I prefer having company. Not necessarily having to go out or anything, just relaxing and laughing. I like being alone in my room, but not when the rest of my house is empty. It’s hard to explain but I know what I’m saying hahah. I've done a lot of reading for my classes.

Man, I was looking through my calendar and it seems like September and October are already filling up with things. Time is FLYING and it’s kinda overwhelming. I’m enjoying it though. Also just made 9 months with Jay. Coming up: tea party with Kara [don’t ask], National Writers’ Workshop with Eddy and Jackie, my boss’s son’s Bar Mitzvah [my first!], Universal Studios at some point, AND…I’m REALLY excited for this coming Friday…laser show at the Planetarium! Radiohead. Enough said. I wanna go skydiving again.

Recent movies: “Henry Poole Was Here,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” “Hamlet 2,” “Tropic Thunder” tonight, “The Bucket List,” “The Baxter,” and “Benny and Joon.” I’m really excited for “Choke” to come out, too.

Regardless of who the next President may be, we're screwed.
I just warmed up my leftover Chinese soup, sat on the porch watching the rain and playing with my new outdoor cat. I'm gonna try to cook something fun up for tonight...let's see what happens.

By the way, the New York Times online has a lot of typos.

Halfbaked Wanna: yeah, go back to reading, rainbow.
I miss Martin. Can’t wait ‘til he gets back. GIANT shindig.

R.I.P. Eskimo <3 you are missed.

I spent Friday-Sunday at the beach and have nothing to show for it.
Tan is fading :/
But I had a great time and nothing beats laying in bed with him, literally all day, only getting up to pee. He'll even put up with watching Lifetime for me :]
People came over and we played charades hahah

I have to admit, pathetic as it may sound, that I feel kinda lonely right now. I think it's probably because I haven't been alone for a number of days until this afternoon. I love my alone time, but lately I prefer company more.

Work is great and hectic as always.
We threw a "surprise" baby shower for Holiday, was nice.
School is right around the corner and I'm both excited and nervous.
Photography workshop on Thursday, bringing Jelly, I'm excited.
Kara is coming over soon to keep me company.

It was great seeing everyone yesterday at Thai Cafe, even though I had 22 mosquito bites on ONE leg alone after standing outside. Spent the rest of the day with my boo, eating Chinese food and watching movies. I think I'm getting sick.

New York was AMAZING but that's a very long story on its own. We really made the most of it. Philly in 2 weeks and I'm so excited :D

Thursday night I was driving home down that curvy road by my house, kinda late at night so there weren’t many cars on the road, when I see a car to my left at a shopping center, waiting to make a left into my lane. Mind you, there is NO ONE behind me, but the jerk couldn’t wait. He throws his car in front of me and I have to slam on my brakes. Naturally, and annoyed, I honk. He then slams on his brakes, sticks his arm out the window, and flicks me off. Then I see flashing lights behind me and I’m like “fuck…” but the cop cuts ME off and pulls over the JERK in front of me! mwa-hahah how I love life. I drove by and smiled as I waved, like a dork. I was so happy. I am happy :]

You know…it’s just too much shit for one day.

1. my dog, Rocky, died this afternoon. I rushed home when I got the phone call but he died before I got there.
2. missed the doctor’s appointment I’ve been waiting 2 months for and have to wait another 2 months now
3. my engine overheated and it’s most likely completely ruined and uncovered by my warranty

And fuck man, I am SUCH an optimistic person and things have been going so well lately. I guess my streak was up and all the shit just had to hit the fan at once. It may not seem like much to anyone else, but you have no idea how terrible I’ve felt all day. Just when things “can’t get worse,” they do. But you know, it’s so relieving to let out a good, hard cry every once in a while.

Thank goodness my Jellybean picked me up to take me out for a bit. We saw “Made of Honor” and had some sushi. I love her to death and dunno what I’d do without her.

Please send me some positive vibes, to help me get rid of that little black cloud that wanted to follow me around today ♥

-My room is in the process of being cleaned/organized [for real]

Things to do SOON:

-Botero exhibit @ Fairchild Botanical Gardens
-go to the Youth Fair like a big baby

I can't shake off this feeling of unease.
Despite my best efforts to not think about it, I can't help it.
These aren't thoughts/feelings I normally experience.
And it's dragging me down, down, down.

I hate not being able to sleep in 'til 3 PM, like I used to.
I'm awake by 9 AM most of the time. Like a vieja.

However, I must say I enjoy being able to have longer days,
even if I just waste them away laying around the house.
I guess I do "get more out of the day." whatevah.

Life is good lately.
School is much harder this semester and work is more hectic than ever, but I feel good. I love my friends and boyfriend and family, and I've just been relaxing.

So my boss burned the new Juanes CD for me, and I don't care what you say, I love it. Esta delicioso.

You know, my first time on a plane a couple of years back, I played "At the Bottom of Everything" by Bright Eyes on my iPod and just laughed to myself. It's about a plane crash, but it's very upbeat hahahah

Today should be awesome.
