Another Year

on December 4, 2018 - 8:14pm

Another year and another bday! This year has really flown by, yeah, I know the month is not over, but jeez Well, like I wrote another bday also. Today I spent the day with my mother, and fam. I feel so happy and grateful to have them in my life. I share bday with my little niece, so a birthday cake was purchased and my fam headed to my sister's home. Everyone ate, sang bday song to my niece and I and had cake. Next was present time, my niece loved her presents. Makes me happy she did. She even wore the bday shirt I made her last year.
Just feeling extremely grateful for my family.

Dinner with the Fam.

on February 23, 2018 - 10:10pm

So today my sister in law called and asked if I wanted to join her, my brother and family out to the movies and dinner. Of course, I said yes. Maybe because we sometimes go daysss with out seeing each other and hey, I just felt like going out since I have not been out in a while. My brother's friend, and nephew picked me up, and we met my brother and sis in law at the restaurant. I noticed my brother arrive with a gift. My sister in law's bday is coming up soon, so I thought to myself, he had decided to go ahead and gift her an early bday present.

Frank Iero & the Patience Rise Against Deftones

on July 4, 2017 - 9:37pm

Hi!!!! people. A week ago today I got to see Frank & the Patience in my city! Along with Thrice, Rise Against and Deftones. Guys this lineup is AWESOME! I can honestly say that this has been my first concert where I have actually liked all the bands. Because you know sometimes you go to a show for the headliner and have to wait until they take the stage. Have to wait until all the opening bands are done, sometimes I come across some new up and coming bands whose sets I liked and others not so much. but anyways, like I was saying I loved all four bands.

So a Birthday and an AWOL concert

on December 9, 2016 - 10:42am

So this passed sunday was my birthday! yay! Happy Bday to me again! ( like five days later). So that day was pretty good. My family visited, and I received gifts, and had two cakes. To be honest, the gifts were not big or expensive. But I truly appreciate all of them, and the fact that my 'family' showed up in the first place. See, my family is pretty weird, I think. We are not the types to like really show how we feel. So having them show up, congratulate me and with presents, well to be honest I was surprised. But I am really appreciative of the fact that they did.

complete fail

on May 11, 2016 - 3:09pm

so if you read my other blogs you might know that I have been working towards my phlebotomy certification. I went to school, finished externship and the last thing to do was take my certification test. well, today was the day. and damn it, it did not go as planned. I had studied, but not enough because at the end of the test, the screen read Fail. I showed up to the site. they take your picture, check your i.d. to make sure it is really you and even scan your palms. I was let into a room where there were other people already taking their tests.

My sister in law's bday is coming up soon, so I thought to myself, he had decided to go ahead and gift her an early bday present. After everyone had finished eating, he did give her the bag and she opened it. Super cute gift. Plan was to then go to the movies, but then they decided to head to the store, buy chips, a cheesecake and head to their home and watch a movie on Netflix. We saw the emoji movie. I thought it was so nice and thoughtful of them to invite me to what was like a early bday dinner. Like I said, we sometimes do go dayssss without seeing each other, I enjoyed the get-together. Sometimes I feel like weird, being around them or the rest of my family because like when you get together with people you have not seen in a while. The first thing you ask is how have you been, and what have you been up to. In my case, it has been yeah, I am fine, and just the same old same old, in other words, nothing. Since I do not have anything interesting going on in my life, I find it difficult, embarrassing, to just like sit there, and hear them and company talk about their everyday life's, and I just listen since I can not really be like oh yeah, I did this... Has anyone else ever felt like this

Have to wait until all the opening bands are done, sometimes I come across some new up and coming bands whose sets I liked and others not so much. but anyways, like I was saying I loved all four bands. I think the Patience's set was like thirty minutes. Thrice followed. I had heard about them but hadn't gotten around to really listen to their music. Their set was great. Omg then co-headliner Rise Against! My second time seeing them, after years. Freakin Awesome! Btw, I actually got to meet the band before the show. Nice people. Finally Deftones. Love them. I'll be honest I was super excited about this summer tour when it was announced because of Rise Against and Deftones. When I found out the Patience was also playing I was like, Great I get to see Frnk and his band perform for the first time. The new Rise Against album Wolves is pretty great. I would recommend it, so go and listen to it! Awesome band.

But I am really appreciative of the fact that they did. On Tuesday, I got to go see AWOLNation in concert. They were awesome, (only reason I went to the concert, there were other bands playing that night). I was stuck in traffic for like fifteen minutes but I arrived just in time for their set. Aaron is sooo cute. I think his big blue(I think they are blue) eyes are cute. Anyways, so after their set I left and started my thirty minute drive back home. and that was that.

I was let into a room where there were other people already taking their tests. the tests varied, they were not all phlebotomy related. anyways, I was at computer number sixteen. I was signed in and started my test. honestly, some of the questions, I was like what the fuck, I did not review this material and did not know the answer. like I already said, I did not pass. they said I was going to receive an email with my score in two days. ugh, now I have to study again, and retake this test. but it has to get done. anyways so that was today.

omg, today I had my first tv casting audition! I was nervous but I think I did do well. it was for my college. so I drove down to the site. signed in and waited. it was not long. I was scheduled for the morning, but since I did not read the email on time I did miss my time slot. I texted the person who told me about the casting and she said I could go on ahead and still show up. after signing in they did take a picture. I noticed that the people around me were like "real" actors. they just seemed more prepared and they arrived with their portfolios. it was mixed with both students and other people who have done castings before. so they called my name and another girls, but she was not around. they then called this other guys name and as we were walking back to the room, we found out that we were both from the same college! once inside, we just had to say our names, and if we were with an agency to the camera. the lines were not much, or long. the auditions were for these speaking roles and other parts. im just happy, I did this! I was a little nervous but I just told myself that I could do it, and hey, it wouldn't hurt to try right?. I remembered this quote I heard once, (Do one thing everyday that scares you). so maybe not necessarily scares you, but just something that you would not normally do. so I decided to give it a try and now im proud of myself for going to the audition.
