Freedom =]

Freedom is the last, best hope of earth.
-Abraham Lincoln

So I’m out of school and I’m free till spring. I can’t wait to hang out with my friends. Have some me time. Read a couple of books that “I want”. Stay up late and watch movies. Go out and party. I’ll be me again. Woohoo!

But Overall school was great and oh yeah I received my grades. I got two “A’s” and a “B”. So I’m happy and ready to relax.

How rude....

“A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person”

I come to realize that we are all surrounded with rude people. However, the ways you come to socialize with them reflect the outcome you’re going to have with those people. Sometimes it’s worth working on getting on a person’s good side. But there are some people that are just too weird. By weird, I mean that do the craziest things that you just don’t want to be on their good side. But it’s better to get along with people that being on their bad side. So we should all just try. If it works…. It works.


How to Deal with Rude People:

Don’t take it personally. Perhaps the offender is having a bad day.

Size up your annoyances. Is it worth it to make a fuss over something small, or is it a waste of your emotional time?

Set a good example. Rudeness begets rudeness. If you speak sharply to the bank teller, don’t be surprised if you get the same treatment in return.

Count to ten. When someone’s behavior makes you angry, take a few deep breaths and ask yourself, “Is it really worth blowing my stack over this?”

Laugh it off. If you can’t come up with a friendly joke, just chuckle and change the subject.

Let’s say someone cuts in front of you while you’re in line. Say something like "Excuse me, I was here before you." Some people just like to see how much they can get away with, so if you call them on their behavior, they're likely to retreat. You can also politely ask “Why are you cutting in line?” The person may be embarrassed enough to step away.

You want to ask a question at the doctor’s office, but the nurse keeps giving you the brush-off. We all know how hard nurses work. So sometimes they’re just swamped. You also deserve to have your questions answered. So try this: Figure out the nurse’s name. Then say, “Excuse me Joan – or Bill, or whatever their name is. I know you’re busy, but when you have a moment, I could really use some help.” People are more likely to go the extra mile for folks who call them by name because it creates a bond and makes the person feel closer to you – like you’re friends. Acknowledging the fact that they’re busy shows that you sympathize with their situation – which makes you seem friendly.

A salesclerk won’t help you. If you’ve made several attempts to flag them down, and they STILL won’t talk to you, politely say “If you can’t help me, I would like to speak to a manager.” This’ll usually motivate the clerk, because they don’t want to get the boss involved. Remember to SMILE while you’re talking to them – that lets the salesclerk know that you’re not aggressive or looking for a fight.

Sickness took over my weekend. Worst part about it, it was my Halloween weekend. That was wrong in so many ways.

But you guys know me; I had to turn a negative into a positive. After taking my boys trick or treating, we got home, check the candy. Then we talked about the scary things we saw, bought and eat the best tacos ever then we watched the scary shows on Nick. I had plan on going out but this is when I was starting to get sick.

Sunday, I was sick in bed so my brother, my boys and I watched scary movies all day long. We watched the Orphan, The Omen, and The Messenger. For Breakfast we did have homemade eggs but for lunch and dinner it was sandwiches and takeout. Dinner we had BBQ from Ohana Hawaiian food. MMMMMMM!

So I’m back at work but still sick, it’s okay though being here gives me more energy to get stuff done. I also need to type my homework. This was another up and down week.

Down-Got sick
Up- Watched movies w/ family.
Down- Had to use a vacation day, which I was saving for December

Down- my charger for my laptop stopped working
Up- met a real cute guy that recommended solutions
Down- Spot that went to was too expensive

Down- Have not bought my charger
Up- Got the cute guys number
Down- I'm sure I'm not gonna call him, felt ugly that day.

Up- Found some energy yesterday, and type up my
Homework assignment on my desktop at home
Down- Try to print out my assignment at work but, wouldn’t open my Microsoft 2007 format
Down- Had to type it over.

Down- Didn’t take any cute pictures this weekend
Up- Called Best Buy and my camera will be ready on Wednesday.
Down- Have to work and go to class that day Might not be able to pick it up

More downs this time =[ It's probaly just the sickness talking though.

HomeWalk 08

What is HomeWalk?

HomeWalk our 5K walk, is part of United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ year-round campaign to end homelessness. In 2008, over 4,000 people and 250 volunteers walked together to raise approximately $500,000. Participants in HomeWalk are also led on an educational journey, inspiring walkers to learn more about the crisis of homelessness and what they can do to solve it.

How will the funds be used?

All money raised from HomeWalk is distributed back into the community to help quickly rehouse homeless families and provide permanent housing with supportive services to the chronically homeless. Our rapid rehousing partners quickly move homeless families into permanent housing and provide short-term income support and additional support services (food vouchers, access to medical care and day care) to help ensure a successful transition. Our permanent supportive housing partners provide subsidized apartments with on-site services available, such as health care, mental health and substance abuse treatment programs.

Now more than ever we need to work together to fight poverty.

So we can end homelessness for good.

When is HomeWalk?

8 Things guys notice about you Instantly

"Wounder what he'sll notice first: my genuine smile or my smoky eyes?"

1.How thick your hair is
This is all about evolution. Since cave-man days, dudes have been drawn to lush locks, which signal that a woman is healthy (Shaggable).

2. If your smile is Genuine

- Sometimes your eyes crinkle a bit when you grin. Most men are good at distinguishing the vibe of this kind of smile, which say you’re relaxed and fun.

3. The size of your Group
- You don’t want a big bunch (it’ll be hard for him to approach) or just one friend (he’ll figure you wouldn’t desert her to talk to him). The perfect crew size? Three. Your two buds can keep each other company when you slip away.

4. The pitch of your voice
Studies show that men are drawn to voices in a slightly higher register (think Kristin Bell’s), probably because-yep, evolution-they’re reliable signs of youth and reproductive health.

5. Your Hip-to-Waist Ratio
Yet again, blame eons of human history. Men instinctually look for baby mamas. If your waist is noticeably smaller than your hips, it signifies fertility- a huge pint in your favor. A wide belt would emphasize that hourglass shape.

6. Your Glowiness
Guys associate a radiant complexion with good mental health. That’s because stress and anxiety usually cause breakout and dull skin. So those lotions and bronzers you sweep over your cheeks? Totally worth it.

7. What's fake about you
Not personality-fake, but artificial accoutrement-fake: lashes, hair, extensions, ect. To guys, these thing shout high-maintenance! Not good.

8. Your eyes

People focus on eyes more than they do on any other body part. And dramatic eye makeup will have him zeroing in on your peepers even more.

So another interesting story in Cosmopolitan, this one was written by Bethany Heitman. It really got my attention. I don't know if I totally agree with them. For example waist and hip proportion because they are looking for baby mamas... hmmmm? How thick is your hair??? Well as long as you don't have noticeable thin hair... I think you'll be okay.

TGIF...again baby!

The imagination exercises a powerful influence
over every act of
sense, thought, reason,
-- over every idea.

~Latin Proverb~

So I had a hectic crazy week. I had so much homework, and studying to do. But I want you guys to know that during all that time I was really hoping I was blogging. I have not had anytime to have fun, talk to friends or be creative.

So this weekend, lets all be creative and try something new,
New hairstyle or new makeup or new background on our laptop/desktop.
Let’s change something.

Change can be fun.

I’m going to my aunts wedding AGAIN. Yes, she is really getting married this time. Well, I really hope she is because driving to the Valley from LA is not cool. So I’m going to try to do something different. I don’t know how different I can be at a wedding. So we will see.


So I know I promised some swatches from MAC Black style collection but I have not had anytime at all. I did wear Cinderfella on Tuesday. We had an awesome rainy day. I was stuck at work and then in class, so I didn’t really get to enjoy it. But I love rainy days. It just makes the day feel so peaceful. Rainy days are perfect to stay at home watch a movie in PJ’s or stay in bed with a good book. Well I’m sure we will have more rainy days soon.

I really hope so.

So OMG MAC Cosmetics has the Holiday collection on pre-sell.

First of all... just the palettes are so adorable.

Secondly, The colors are great. These are only my favorites. I think there are a couple more.


Halloween is just around the corner... how fun. My kids love Halloween. The amazing part about it is that last year they wanted to be Spiderman, or hulk but this year there all about being scary. Andrew is looking forward on dressing up as a scary clown and Bryan wants to be some kind of ugly monster. Christopher is still in his I'm Spiderman stage. I'm excited on dressing them up and having lots of fun. Halloween is such an awesome time to be creative. There are so many awesome videos out there. You can also create your own. I found this picture which I would love to see in make up status.

So Simple but so cool!

To Tuesday...

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

- Michael Jordan

I feel horrible everyday that passes by and I don't blog. Well this weekend was crazy busy. First of all my boys got their costumes. Yes there creepy scary... and we love it. I'll have pictures soon. Secondly, I took my camera back to Best Buy... I must say I love them. I didn't get warranty on it (yes, I know, how dumb). However, since it's been less than a year the manufacture warranty covered it and its getting fixed. WOOOHOOOO! I’m soooo happy about that. I can’t wait to get it back and take many many pictures. Its gives more opportunity to get pictures on my blog.

So remember how I told you guys I love changes. Well, I love them but I realized that I’m scared of major changes. Like when it comes down to it. I start over thinking it and wondering what if… However, I reminded myself that change is good. SOOOOO… I cut my hair. I had it so long and now it’s so much shorter. But it will grow back and I can just have fun now. I have more opportunities to try new styles and enjoy while it’s short.

I have not had much time to play with make up and that totally sucks. So school is so much fun but getting harder. I guess, because it’s mid-semester. Well I love you guys. I will definitely have those Halloween pictures soon. My camera will be ready till November 4, 2009 so I will have to borrow my dad. But pictures will be taken =]

I look like a major nerd in this picture... but just showing you guys the eyebrows and shadow.

Random Friday....

So just wanted to share some random thoughts... (As always)

Last night I went to the movies to watch Paranormal Activity... I don't know if I was scare off my ass because I was watching at midnight, or cause I'm a believer, or cause it seem so real, But I was truly scared. I really did sleep with my light on. During the movie I literally yelled at the scary parts of the movie. So yeah I’m not advertising the movie or anything but if you like scary movies go check it out =]

A scary experience I had a while ago….

I was in the shower, shampooing my hair. Then I got one of those feeling that some one is staring at you. So I got freaked out I rinse my hair as fast I could. I even tried to do it with my eyes open because I felt the feeling more intense when I closed my eyes. As I was drying my hair in front of my bathroom mirror, I tried to convince myself I’m thinking crazy. But all of the sudden my radio turn on super loud, that it scare the hell out of me. I ran to my room and pulled the plug out. I didn’t even try to touch it. A day before all of that I had my friend in my thoughts. He had just passed away less than a month before that experience. The weirdest part about it, was every time we talked about death, he would always tell me that if he died… he would come back to scare me. That no matter what he was going to stay with me. So right after the radio thing happened, my first thought that came to my mind was… him… but then I said out loud “ I get it, your with me just please stop showing me”. I don’t know if there is another explanation like the radio had some kind of circuit trouble…but why at that very moment… after that strange feeling in the bathroom.

But I sure did get that radio out my room.


So I have been thinking of getting a new laptop. I have a dell that still works well but I want something smaller and lighter that I actually wouldn’t mind carrying around. So I saw this and thought it was OMG so cool. Now I want an apple laptop more than ever...


So I went to MAC and checked out the DSQUARED collection which was pretty cool but at first seem simple... I did like the lip eraser. However, I didn’t buy it because I had decided to get it with my next paycheck. I had already gotten plenty of stuff from the Black style collection. But then Kandee the make up artist blogged about it. I was like OH NO! Now everyone is going to go buy it. So I went to the MAC website and sure enough it was SOLD OUT! I was sooo disappointed but I did call the MAC store by my job and luckily they had 2 left so yup they are reserved and I'm picking it up during lunch.

I did buy some shadows from the black style collection which I will share some swatches.

So check that out later on.


Something to smile or laugh about...

Have a GREAT Weekend!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

~Marcel Proust~


Well, I been trying to do everything I need to do and make it a routine. I’m trying to wake up early and make it to work on time, go to school, do homework, read, study, and be a mom. I also have my son’s that go to school. I have to make sure there homework is done and correct. I need to make sure they understand why it is wrong or right.

I’m grateful for my friends that have stuck around even though I have not really been involved or been such a good friend. (Since School)

I’m grateful for my parents helping me taking care of my kids while I’m at school. Treating them like their own kids. Actually, even better than they treated us…lol but that’s okay.

I’m grateful for having such a great job that gives me the opportunity to go to school. Well, I do it after work hours but sometimes I have to leave earlier I get no complaints about that. I sometimes need 30 extra minutes for lunch to finish some reading or some homework as well.

I’m grateful for having such great co-workers that helped me out with studying or understanding a question I’m stuck on. I’m grateful for their encouragement o’ and breakfast that Helena brings in.

I’m also grateful for my brothers that help my son’s with their homework when I’m not around.


So last night I had a dream, one of those dreams that are so weird but seem so real. Well, I dreamed about the father of my kids. Our relationship had ended about 3 years ago. I wonder all the times why I still have dreams about him. Of course he was involved in my life for 5 years before we split. We had a great relationship in the start, but it escalated to a harsh and complicated relationship that we decided the best was to call it quits. After legal difficulties I lost communication with him and decide to keep it that way. I’m no longer interested in involving myself with him again. I have accomplished so many goals since he has been out of my life. I have become a better person. However, I still have him in my dreams, some random thoughts with out the need for them WHY? WHY? WHY?

Sometimes I wonder if destiny is saying you should have worked it out. But maybe it’s saying this is the way it supposed to be. I’m accomplishing so much, I’m driving now, I’m going to school, and I’m more involved with my family and friends than before. But what if god gave me my soul mate and we were supposed to work it out and we didn’t even truly try?

Friday, October 2, 2009

Happy Monday...

Let’s start this week right... let’s all plan to do something new. I'm feeling good and hopeful for this week. It was a kind of weird weekend. Maybe because of the full moon or cause I finally went out again. I should have not gone but I'm good now and catching up on my studying. But I’m happier than ever than I’m blogging. Tomorrow I’ll be in Pasadena in some Job fair. It’s going to be hectic but hopefully fun.

Anyone who has never made a mistake
has never tried anything new.

Welcome Fall!

So it’s officially fall…. Wooohoo! I love summer but fall, is my favorite season. The whether is definitely changing! New collections, new trends, and more fun. It’s the best time for evening movie nights. I love staying home on cold gloomy afternoon to watch scary movies in my sofa with a blanket and some hot cocoa or even with pizza and some coke. All I really need is the gloomy afternoon though.

Hopefully with all these exams at school I’ll have time to enjoy fall.

So school has definitely taken up all my free time, so I’ll try to keep blogging as much as I can. I really do feel bad… I have been behind on my shopping as well, Ugh! No time for anything, I missed a couple of sales =[ So sad.

But I did go check out the Style Black collection from MAC…. LOVES IT!

This picture was taken by co-worker Mrs. L Bailey… She makes awesome videos on YOUTUBE. You guys should check her out. I always been obsessed with make up. But she is taking me to a whole other level. I’m kind of scared but enjoy the thrill…lol Well everything from this collections is great. I love the penultimate eyeliner and the eye kohl pencil, to die for. The mineralize eye shadows are much pigmented and look great with the black grease paint stick.

Perfectly unordinary, My Favorite Pink, Do it up, Creme Allure

The Dazzle glass creme lip glosses are great!
I got the Crème allure and absolutely love it!

Can you

OMG.. I know I look MEAN in this picture... but trust me I'm not...I don't know why I look mad... but yeah this creme allure the forth/last one in both pics.

I also got DSquared2 scupt & Shape powder


Well its okay I guess... not really impressed. I guess I need a new contour brush to make it work better... IDK... I’ll keep playing with it.Well I'll be shopping for a couple more stuff next week and hopefully I'll get to share.

Other than shopping for make up... I been spending much time with my boys... In my sociology class last night we were discussing family and it was discussed that there is an increased in single parent families. There was some discussing of how a child can not be raised normal in a single parent family. It hurt to know that many students agreed. But what hurt the most is that 80% of those students were actually from single parent families. I’m a single mother and believe that my children are learning good values. I believed that I have been doing a great job and teaching them what is right and wrong. However, the students didn’t agree with the thought of not having all of values thought but just growing up with that empty feeling in them. Knowing that and that my children might have the same thoughts or feelings got to me. I was crying in class… no not like waa waa… it was just tears rolled down my eyes. I got my good encouraging advice from friends, Like Jacky, memo, Manny, my coworkers which I truly adore and love and enjoy working with Helena and Lauren… that all we can do it teach them right and wrong and love them as much as we can. Which I truly do, I work, learn and breathe because of them. So I’m just hoping that if the empty feeling is there, it might now be as intense as those students or others feel.

Saturday, I had planed to go to my Aunt’s last minute wedding ceremony. I didn’t even get to ask for the day off from work. So I had switch shifts with my co-worker and took his night shift. I had scheduled to attend the ceremony, go with the family to eat and have enough time to drive back because it was a 2 hour drive with traffic. We were waiting in the chapel for my aunt's entrance, she was in the other side of the the builiding finishing the paper work. All of the sudden I got a text from my brother, stating that the wedding was cancel. I first I thought my brother was joking. “How was it going to be cancel, if they been together for decades and we were all here. Well, it was cancelled. Some divorce documents were not finalized, so they were not able to get married. It was so SAD. So we didn’t even go out to any restaurant or anything. We decide to take the kids and half of the family to McDonalds. So we just hanged out a Mc Donald for about 2 hours and then drove home. The traffic was horrible, I only had enough time to change and go to work. I missed the fight and my friends get together and was stuck working the night-shift. However, I was there for my aunt. That was all I was worry about.


I was home on the computer which is down the hall from the front door. My mother was on the phone next to me being very loud. I couldn’t concentrate on what I was working on, so I was spinning around on the computer chair. As the chair stopped facing towards the door, I saw our dog outside the door. He was just laying there looking out. I was about to get up to open to door to let him in and scold at him for getting out. But before I got up I heard some weird noises coming from him. Then as I got closer to the door from my long hallway I seen some kids pass by and Fluffy didn’t bark. Right away I knew something was wrong. As I got closer he tried to get up and fell, I ran to him. He was cover in blood, he didn’t want anyone to grab him. He ran behind the clear bookcase display and we were asking him to come out. My mother and I moved the book case and got him out.

He was loosing alot of blodd. We couldn’t let him died so we rushed to the VET emergency room. He stayed the night there. The whole procedure was very expensive. But as a family we all contributed, to keep a member of family with us. He is getting better now, and getting lots of love and attention. It is going to be a slow recovery but the FAM BAM is willing to help out. It’s painful to see him trying to run to the door to greet us. He just sits at his place and cries when someone is coming because he can’t run to the door. All I tell him is “Fluffy it's okay we get it you want to run but you don’t have to. This time we will come to you”.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

Everything else is secondary.

I’m sorry that I been so busy, I really didn’t except that school was going to keep me so busy. I should have known better. But I love every minute of it. Learning can actually be fun.

Tired... but determine!

I’m sooooo tired. As soon as I get home after school, I drop every single thing. I do what I got to do, and then get ready for bed. As a lady, getting ready for bed take longer than I want it to take because it means taking off my make up, washing my face, brushing my teeth, taking my vitamins and changing into my PJS. Then I make sure I have every thing I’m going to need in my purse, then I check my closet to make sure I have something nice to wear. I pick up everything I see on the floor, and make sure the kids are in bed, tuck in, and sleeping. I then check that their clothes and back pack are set up for the next day. Finally I’m able to get in bed. It use to take me about 30 minutes to get my mind set on sleeping but since school started as soon as I close my eyes it only takes me about 30 seconds to knock out.

School it getting to me. With so much homework, so much work at work and so much homework with the kids. I really hoping I can make this work. I’m really hoping I don’t give up. I really hoping I don’t fail. I’m really hoping I don’t fall behind at work. I’m really hoping I don’t fail my kids because of my concentration on school. I’m really hoping I can do this!

"All I have right now is hope, determination and some inspiration to get me through this!"

Tuesday, September 8, 2009


Well, fall classes started last week. So Yes, I started class last week... that's going to push more of my free time out the window. My boys start school tomorrow. I’m so happy but at the same time I’m shocked. I’m shocked that I already have a 2nd grader. My oldest son Andrew is going to second grade. Bryan will be entering the 1st grade. Time is truly flying by. I always encourage my boys to learn as much as they can so when they grow up they can become successful people. However, they are still at that age, that delivering pizza seem like a cool job to them. They mentioned working at a theater to watch as many movies as they want as well. However, I’m sure that just a silly phase. We’ll I’m hoping it is. Whatever choices my kids make, I will proudly stand behind them. I just hope I’m raising them correctly that they will make the correct choices in life.

If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howe
