The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.

I am counting down these ugly horrid work days until the weekend, there is one left to go.
After this week, I really just want to die. Just nothing is going right and I am ready to burst.

Lets do some sort of weekly update here:

The GOOD News:
~ I LOST 3 POUNDS! Okay okay, I know its only 3 pounds, but I have stayed at the same weight for about a year now and haven't been able to lose anything (although I am sure I havent tried THAT hard either) So this is very exciting to me! I really need to lose another 10 pounds to be somewhat happy with that. But I have to start somewhere. Kudos for me!
~ I made a new friend at work, who works in another office, and is fun to talk to because they know how shitty it is to work here, so making new friends is a plus!
~ Pole dancing on Saturday! CANNOT wait for that... I know its going to be really hard and I will get angry that I can't do it completely and really well,,, but I am excited to try that out.
~ I road my bike for the first time and did good!
~ Tonight we are doing happy hour!
~ I have more followers on my blog :) thanks :)

The BAD News:
~ I still hate my job
~ I need to buy some new summer clothes and I cant spend any money
~ We still have yet to book our flight to Peru... HOPEFULLY ON SATURDAY
~ I am dying of allergies
~ I will most likely make no bonus this month
~ I had so much crap work to do this week that I couldn't write as much on here.
~ The stalker girl whos dating my ex, changed her facebook picture to look EXACTLY like mine, with a pic of a dog and all.... I changed mine because that is just ridiculous.

~ I have been yelled at this weekend by at least 10 different clients because of other peoples mistakes and stupidity and then forced to fix them.
~ I have been called rude and said to be giving people hard times by clients, when they were the ones with the attitude and being jerk offs.
~ My boss tells me I am not doing my job -- although no one even knows what my "job" is supposed to do since I do so many more things that are not remotely close to "my job" that they EXCEPT me to do! Uh, how does that work again?
~ 3 of the 5 people on my team I do all the work for will get at least $2K in bonus, and me? $0.

Well that is about all i can think of. I hope for next week to be better, where maybe only 4 people will yell at me! I can deal with four!

"Let's Fly a Plane Through NYC for a Photo Op & Not Tell Anyone! GREAT IDEA!"

I mean seriously? Did the F.A.A REALLY think that NO one would freak out? Are you fucking out of your mind?
"I'd call this felony stupidity. This is probably not the right job for Mr. Caldera to be in if he didn't understand the likely reaction of New Yorkers, of the mayor," Townsend said Tuesday on CNN's "American Morning." -- CNN reports. WELL... It's a little too late now, don't you think? I hope they fired that guy.
So the Air Force One was taking part in a "classified photo op", which was a secret... except for the 8 million people that live and work there every single day.

It was actually going to be unnoticeable. AGAIN, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!!! If you were going to do this in a remote area, okay then I can understand the secrecy, but WHAT DID THEY THINK WOULD HAPPEN! I mean, use common sense here people.
""An F.A.A. memo last week said information about the exercise “should only be shared with persons with a need to know” and “shall not be released to the public or the media.” "

Now... in that situation, WHO exactly are the people who "need to know"? And it shouldn't be released to the public or media?! Until a plane flew eye level to their office on the 80th floor?!
Did they believe that people would just sit there calmly and not do shit? Seriously?

This makes me really angry. The fact that they don't even think to put something in the paper or on the news, they wouldn't even need to say WHY, just a heads up -- "Hey, there will be a plane flying really close to the buildings in NYC today, its a photo op, so don't freak out, its not another 9/11 okay?" No. Nothing. Something is better than nothing!

Well I hope people didn't actually get hurt because of this. I would really like to know WHY. Why would you even need a picture of a plane flying that close to buildings anyway? Are you trying to stage a fake terrorist attack? Like what is the reason behind that.. Who would even want pictures of that. Idiots. There is no other word! Well --there are, there are many actually, but I choose not to name them because I would just be cursing.

The boyfriend's knows someones wife who was working in one of the buildings that it flew by. She said that everyone in her office panicked, and her thoughts were "well I won't make it since all these people just ran down the stairs before me, so I'm just going to sit here and continue doing my work." I am not sure what I would have done. I think I might have tried to get out.. I am not sure, but that would probably be my initial thought reaction. I hope if someone got hurt that they sue those idiots for endangering their lives!


On a positive note, 2 more days until Friday :)

The Unimportant Things

Hope everyone had a nice Monday... it was gorgeous out today and I didn't get to leave the office once. Bummer. Monday is the worst day of the week. I absolutely despise it! I need this economy to turn around ASAP so I can get on with my LIFE. I am ready to start the rest of my life.. this has been some sort of college/real life transitional period, so i think that is over!

Moonjava, tagged me in a post so here it is!!! Thanks Lady :) 

1. Mention the person who nominated you.
2. List six unimportant things that make you happy.

(1) Right when the sun goes down after its been really hot out .... its nice to sit outside!

(2) Randomly funny emails during a crappy day at work or text messages

(3) Girls nights... actually that would be considered important so im not sure if it belongs on this list ooops :)
Girls Night Out Pictures, Images and Photos

(4) Really awesome websites... that I wish I could design!

(5) The fact that Google has all of my answers.... when I used to be in college stoned and we had so many questions that needed to be answered and didn't know about google! So im glad its here now! 

(6) Being tan, I always feel better when I am tan

3. Tag six blogs, state the rules & notify them with a teeny comment on their blog.

1. One Day Paris
2. Someday I'll get there
3. The One Curly Fry
4. Tough Crowd
5. *Life is Sweet*

Everyone else I wanted to tag was already tagged :)

Like the new signature? I am still experimenting with photoshop.... 
Also! I have decided that coming in June I am on the list to have a blog layout made for me from Sherbet Blossom Designs
So I am super excited about that! I really am web page illiterate when it comes to this stuff. I really shouldn't have dropped out of that graphic art class in college. damnit. So that is something to look forward to. Plus we are JUST on the verge of booking this trip. God I can't wait because the planning part just sucks -- its so much research to figure out where to go, where to stay, which plane ticket website will give me the better deal with the best times AND the least layover time! AH - I just want to go! No planning. Obv that doesn't work. 

Since it was so nice out tonight and I was stuck inside all day, I skipped the gym and I rode my bike (first time i have ridden a bike since like 2004 BTW) (and it was QUITE hard) to my friends house and we walked around town for a couple hours. So that was nice to get out and be outside after a long ass day. 

This weekend me and my girls are taking a pole dancing class

Should be interesting! We signed up at Sheckys Girls Night Out and I definitely think I will not be able to do that! Can't wait to update that one for next week! 

Good night all

The Friday 5

I figured I would do this be nice to do since I have seen it on everyone else's pages :) I got the idea from Moonjava

The Friday 5

1) What’s the most annoying sound in the world?

Cell phones ringing while we are in a meeting when it is obvious that you should have shut it off! I mean, MY phone is not ringing, its on vibrate.... ever heard of that?!

2) Which of other people’s mannerisms do you find very annoying?

Interupting you while you are in a conversation with someone, as if what they have to say needs to be said RIGHT NOW and it's MUCH more important than what YOU are talking about AND it will only be a second..... god i HATE that.
3) What do you do that really annoys others?

How incompetent some people can really be. I mean, use common sense! Don't ask questions unless you REALLY don't know the answer and you looked for it and couldnt find it!

4) In what way has your own behavior recently caused you annoyance?

That I have been pissed and upset and mean at work because having to deal with stupid people really makes me upset and the only way I have to take it out is by lashing out and being mean, because being quiet and just sucking it up doesn't work. So I hate that I have to be mean, but seriously, that's the only way people seem to get things through their thick skull, and even then, its like 50/50 chance they will understand!

5) Who’s the most annoying person you know?

Do I really have to answer that? Because after the day I had.... there would be like 15 people at the top

AHHHH Okay i have to go drink now after the great day I had! Sorry about the cynical post!

Thanks for making my days easier to deal with all my blog followers and commentors!! :)

Best Day of the Week!

FRIDAY Pictures, Images and Photos

It is gorgeous out and I am stuck inside. What sense does that make?! AH the weekend. What a great thing to have included in my life. When I used to work full time at the coffee shop my weekend was Monday and Tuesday. Soooo not as good as Saturday & Sunday!
SPCA Walkathon tomorrow is where I'll be, although it would be better being there if I actually had a dog, but that's okay --it's still a fun event. Then maybe the dog park on Sunday after I go to the shelter Sun. morning. A dog filled weekend!
Still on the saving money kick.... although it is actually hard for me to bring my own lunch since I am too lazy to make it at night. But I haven't bought anything else besides gas and lunch. So. That is a start! Especially when its really nice out AND i just got paid and I want to go have drinks and buy clothes! Ah the urges....
Tonight the boyfriend and I have a date to plan our Peru trip! Woo hoo :)

Trouble in Paradise

I hate trouble. Especially relationship trouble.

And that is where I am now.

Last night the boyfriend and I talked about our relationship and how some things weren't working out. For the most part we get along fine and there aren't any problems and we are happy together having a good time. But there are some key issues that we have. One being that we are completely different and we both see situations COMPLETELY differently. Usually, he sees them correctly and I don't. Once he points them out, I can see where he is coming from and I can't understand WHY I dont think of that first. It is almost annoying that I can't think of the situation like that first.

Let me give some examples to better explain myself and this situation. For instance, we went out to dinner the other night. Not a big deal, we are not cheap, we like to go out and all that jazz. But, the background scenario, we just got back from Costa Rica, we are planning to go to Peru at the end of May, and basically, we need to save ever penny for this trip. But we still go out to dinner, because I suggest that we go, and he doesn't disagree with me. So we are spending money on stuff we don't need. Or we get take out delivered to our house and that's another amount of money that we didn't need to spend either. His dilemma is that he is saving money and then by the end of the weekend, it's all gone because we are spending it like crazy. And I totally see his point; but AFTER the fact that it was mentioned.

Let me just tell you, I SUCK at saving money. It is like nearly impossible for me to do. I have 2 credit card bills, cell phone bill, cable/internet bill, heat & electricity bill, school tuition bill, rent bill; it NEVER ends! Although we do split everything mostly, it's just a money pit to have an apartment or basically live in this area. Plus I do like to buy some new clothes or something. BUT I must admit that I have been really good, I barely have bought anything this entire year so far -- and that is good for me, because last year I went on a rampage.

The boyfriends point is that I don't see it, and I usually make the plans for him without even asking him and if he doesn't want to do them, he feels like a dick because I already made the plans, so he has to go along with them. My point of view on that is that the plans are usually with our friends we hang out with all the time, so I didn't really think it was a big deal ---which its not he is making the point that we need to save money--- but he is saying that he never gets to even attempt to make the plans. So I never really saw it like that until he said something. So I really need to be more, accommodating I guess is the word and not make all the plans. But sometimes I feel like if i dont make the plans, THERE WON'T BE ANY! And I really don't like sitting around and doing nothing on my only days off... So I mean I guess I need to stop being the plan maker a few times.

Another part of the conversation is that we are never affectionate towards each other. Which is true. We have been dating for 3 years now and it has grown less and less kissy kissy and hugs and sitting on his lap and cuddling watching tv, and things like that. And I dont mean that we need to be PDA all the time and everywhere, but like holding hands while walking somewhere or kisses randomly, or something like that would be nice. And I am at fault too because I don't do this either. I dont know why, I guess sometimes we're either too busy or our couch is too small. I know those are excuses but it is true. Another thing we need to work on ASAP.

I feel like maybe I have been selfish. That I actually care more about what I want to do than what he wants to do. And that is REALLY SHITTY. I don't want to be that person. I am not a selfish person. But I guess I have been selfish without even realizing it. And that needs to change.

What I have taken out of this conversation, is that we need to work on a bunch of things and that I alone need to work on things too.

WE need to work on..

1. Being more affectionate -- love!! kisses!! hugs! hand holding! It involves these things and we miss them! We need them back!

2. Spending more time together -- outside, walking, going to the park, sitting on the porch, watching a movie. Now that its nice outside we'll be able to do things like this, its really hard in the winter to do anything that is outdoors. Plus we spend too much time infront of the computer and the television --they are sucking away our lives.

3. Saving Money. We are trying to go away for two weeks in exactly ONE month from now and we need serious $$$ for that trip.. I really hope we can do this. Plus we have to buy the plane tickets and the hotel and the car.... AND pay rent. Ugh!

4. Communicating more with each other and talking about things instead of just brushing them off until a later date

I need to work on..

1. Being more affectionate and loving; make the effort!!!!

2. Letting the boyfriend make the plans for once -- i think i can deal with this especially if my reward is going on vacation in a month.

3. Stop spending money and save it. Bring lunch from home, NO NEW CLOTHES, NO NEW BAGS, no pedicures/manicures, stop buying stuff from Target that I don't need

4. Save money!!!!!!!! seriously.

5. Stop being selfish.

6. Make an effort to fix these things

I WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN!!! We are GOING to Peru! Our relationship WILL be better. I WILL work on myself and thinking before I act (since I have serious problems with that).

Why? Because I love him. That's why. And I will NOT let someone so good, fall through the cracks. Because he is my best friend. And he deserves it!

"They say true love only comes around once and you have to hold out and be strong until then. I have been waiting. I have been searching. I am a man under the moon, walking the streets of earth until dawn. There's got to be someone for me. It's not too much to ask. Just someone to be with. Someone to love. Someone to give everything to. Someone."

Advice is welcome :)

Slumdog Millionaire

Saw it last night and it was great! I didn't know what all the hype was about but now I know and can understand. They did a GREAT job I am excited that they won 8 oscars; they were well deserved. If you haven't seen it, SEE IT!
Although some of the writing on the screen got cut off since I had a bootleg version of it - oops- but I could understand the gist of what they were writing. This movie made me really want to go to India. It's like I need to be there, I dont know why I get these urges to go where there is corruption and dangerousness --although that is really anywhere in the world -- I do tend to want to be there too! Weird, I know, but it makes me want to go there and help these children out. Not that me by myself could really do much help, but its the thought that counts. The boyfriend didn't want to watch it because his friend told him it was a chick-flick. Ha! Was it definitely not and he was glad that he ended up watching it!
The kids they picked to act in the movie are so cute; it breaks your heart to see that they have to wheel and deal like that to live.
I am glad about the ending, its kind of a trade off for the kid though; losing someone to gain someone else.

Quarter Life Crisis

Being twenty-something. They call it the “Quarter-life Crisis.” It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many...
View >>

This article is a great, read it, it describes a quarter life crisis that a lot of twenty something people go through.

Dog Park Adventures

I love that cartoon -- it is so great that I hung it up in my cube and gave it to my boss. It's going to be a long day today... my ads haven't been done and I will probably be here really late. FUN !

What a beautiful weekend this weekend this was! It was very productive as well. Between dinner with friends, my baby cousins 1st birthday family party, another friends birthday, went back to the shelter (yay!), dog park adventures, fell in love with a puppy that was rescued from a kill shelter in Georgia and then realized 'oh yeah i cant have dogs in my apt' and got sad, and dinner with more friends! Seriously full weekend I am so tired now!

I am hoping the pictures from the dog park go up really soon, here is the website of the guy that takes pictures from the dog park we went to. If you are interested in one of the puppies from the kill shelter, they are SO cute, definitely go there or contact me and I can put you in touch with the lady who rescued them because they are up for adoption!

So cuteeeeeeee I want them so bad! One day.... one day..

So at the dog park it was pretty interesting, we went with my friends dogs, Simba and Storm, and we were hanging out there while the dogs played. It was pretty funny to see all the dogs playing together, and it's pretty much like its own community which at first I thought was lame, but by the end of the time we were there we had actually met some nice people and I realized that this is what dog owners do; they hang out with other dogs! And I so want to be apart of that! We met this lady who trains dogs and she had just came back from recently rescuing dogs from a kill shelter in Georgia and she had one of the puppies in the car with her. As soon as the pictures are posted on the website I will post them up here, but the puppy that I got to hold was SO adorable and cute, I WISH WISH WISH I could have him :( But of course I cant. 

One of the bigger pit bulls, Tiny, was playing too rough with some of the other dogs and was playing with Simba and he is MUCH bigger than Simba, him only being a 4 month old pit bull, so it was a little unsafe for a much bigger dog like that to be rough with him  so after an encounter with being TOO rough, we decided to go to the complete other side of the park so Simba didn't get hurt. It was a fun experience though and I really want to go again; with my own dog!!! But in the meantime.... lil Simba will have to do! 

It is about to be 5 and I am no where NEAR leaving :(

ps. i just saved a bird that got attacked in my jobs parking lot by another bird. I brought it to the animal hospital and dropped it off so they can help it. I hope its okay!!!!

I am Passionate.

Yesterday I read a post by In so many words and I was inspired to use her idea and post it here as well and I encourage you to do the same!

I wanted to do the get to know me more thing anyway so I thought this was a great idea in itself so I am passing along the idea.

I am passionate about traveling the world; learning and discovering new things all the time; animals and helping them; writing and expressing myself; my friends, my lover and my family -- they complete me; enjoying the weather when its beautiful; living my life to the fullest and try to be achieve goals and take opportunities when I can

Laughter and good times with the ones I love, lying on the beach in the sun and drinking pina coloda's, drinking great coffee, driving through the city in the morning before everyone wakes up, the smell of camp fires, and rainy day thunder/lightening love makin bring me great joy.

I help others by volunteering at the SPCA and I walk the dogs that live in cages 24/7. I am a better person from doing this, it makes me appreciate life and try to help the animals appreciate their live. I am studying to become a teacher so I can give back to the community and help others grow. I want to teach abroad in a third world country sometime soon so I can bring my knowledge to them and help them out.

I really hope to add to this list,,, it isn't as long as I want it to be!

An Hour for Happiness!

We are having happy hour a day early today ... so drink up ;)

what a way to end a wonderful day -- and cheers to NO RAIN!

Bad Mood Blues.

It's too late. Deed it done.

I woke up this morning and I was fine. I was a little late, but that's normal.

Then I got to work and people started whining and bitching and moaning, and that just makes me so angry! Obviously it is time to get the hell out, but there is NO WHERE TO GO!

I have applied and applied and applied. And that's about as far as anything went. I am trying to be motivated to do work and I am trying to pay attention and not do other things, but I just can't. The position that I have is getting so screwed. The bonus plan, the amount of work I have to do compared to the reps, etc. No fun. So that is my feelings on work.

On a brighter note, I finally am done with the application process for my Masters in Childhood Education Grades 1-6. I am accepted to the program and I have already started... I need 11 more classes to go! Sees like no a lot, but it is a lot of $$$$. I just need to stick with it, this is my 3rd grad school I have applied to and taken classes at and decided I didn't want to do that degree anymore. So I was excited about that, and as soon as I walked outside to go back to work, I had a flat tire on my car! Wonderful -- is that supposed to be irony? And THEN I went the class I am taking towards this degree and I failed the midterm! More irony? What is it trying to tell me! But I am not the only one who failed --basically half the class, and the teacher knew everyone was going to fail, he said it the first day of school. But still. What a great way to enter a program with a positive attitude. All smiles.

Should I just keep going? Because I have a list of things now that I think about it. An ex-friend of mine, mind youwhom is a evil cheating, liar, bitch, whore, got ENGAGED! How is that even possible? And she is happy! I thought bad things are supposed to happen to bad people, not good things! While, my best friend, who is NOT an evil lying cheating hoe, is having serious issues with her boyfriend and they are in the process of working things out, hopefully! How does that work? Where is the karma people? Where! Also, this week my brother got dumped, she used the "its not you, its me" excuse. As well as my other best guy friend got dumped too, because his girl is a crazy bitch. So with a week full of break-ups (usually bad luck comes in 3's so I think that's it for now) and then her being engaged, it's shitty.

LET ME JUST ADD THIS.... There is this girl who when I was in high school and dating a guy I dated them, the first serious boyfriend of mine, she was in love with him. Ever since then, she has been trying to get with him and kind of stalking me. So I went off to college and him and I broke up. He was mad at me and he knew me and this girl didn't like each other, so he slept with her. It didnt really matter, we weren't together but then the next year she went to MY college! She left 2 years into it. So that was strange because there are SO many colleges out there, how are you going to choose the one I go to!? So now, we are friends on facebook, because I am nosey, and recently I see these weird coincidental things: she is dating HIM, she went to Malaga Spain just like I did, and she has a mini cooper -same car I want. I know this is really coincidental things but oh my god! I should probably just delete her from facebook since she is a little stalkerish. One day, when I decide not to be so nosey, I will do it. Just thought I'd share that with you.

Okay I am done now.

Writing about it is good because once I re-read it, I don't feel as bad. And the count down to the weekend continues...

Animal Cruelty Makes Me SICK

The BF just informed me about this animal cruelty situation that happened close to our home that was on the news today. It disgusted me SO much that I need to share it with as many people as possible because this is something that people need to know, need to change and DO SOMETHING ABOUT! 

Let me begin with letting you know how much of an animal lover I am. I hate to kill bugs -- I usually try to let them outside before I have to go to the extreme to kill them... lol but sometimes, the big creepy ones must go. Every Sunday I go to the SPCA and dog walk the dogs at the shelter. I love it. It makes me feel like a better person. Unfortunately where I live right now I cannot have a dog, stupid apartment situation, so I go there on Sundays and walk the dogs that have no homes. 

I don't know how great every shelter is but I do know that the shelter that I volunteer at is wonderful. The people that volunteer there, the staff and the animals. I love it there and really I wish I worked there. I am so glad one day I woke up and decided to do that. It's been about a year and I feel horrible every time I can't make it.  If you have a great shelter near you, I recommend doing it. It is exercise for your body and your soul -- you are helping animals that usually sit in a cage for 23 hours a day. One day I will adopt one..

So here is the article. I have not figured out how to attach this without using a link but here's the link and I am posting some pictures and the article here too just in case. 

4 kittens survive burn attempt in Mount Vernon

MOUNT VERNON - Four kittens were set on fire in an apartment and left to die yesterday before officials arrived on the scene to rescue them.

"Unfortunately we have been seeing a lot more cruelty lately than we care to see," said Shannon Laukhuf, executive director for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Westchester. "But I've never seen anything like this though, when four kittens were blatantly set on fire."


Laukhuf said the kittens, only about 2 weeks old, are alive and are being nursed at the SPCA's headquarters in Briarcliff.

The Mount Vernon Fire Department responded to a fire at 14 Amsterdam Place yesterday and found the kittens burning inside a desk drawer. Ken Ross, the SPCA's chief of humane law enforcement, said the act appears to be deliberate.

"There was newspaper inside the drawer that was set on fire with the cats," Ross said. "Without a doubt, this was a purposeful act to kill the cats."

Ross said officials are still investigating who might have done this and are asking the public for help. Anyone with information about the incident can call the SPCA's 24-hour confidential tip line at 914-941-7797.

So horrible to see something like this happen. It makes me so sad. I wish people understood that this is as bad as harming a child or a human and that people like this should be locked up or shot and killed. 

I thought I needed to share this. I am sorry if this was depressing :( But its the facts and it needs to be out there. This shit just breaks my heart. These kittens are at the shelter that I volunteer for so maybe I will be able to see them this weekend!

Love for the Important Ones

Happy Monday.

I wanted to take a minute to recognize my friends and family and how great they are. It's not every day that you can tell people how wonderful they are. Until I went to college, I had one or two friends that were girls. It is a long story of why, and it is something I don't want to get into now, but lets just say it has to deal with this evil bitch I was friends with and she turned on me and tried to turn the like entire high school on me and basically, it made my high school experience a shit load of fun. Not. I finished high school in 3 years and peaced out to college.

I think it's important to have great friends that you can trust in your life. It has been a roller coaster ride with the girls and guys I have had in my life and I can say as a fact that where I am at right now in my life, I have never had better friends than I have right now. There are actually MANY female friends that I have --which if you knew me in high school, you would never have thought that to be possible. Then there was the girls I met in college, who I don't actually have that many friends left from college either --it was more of the friends from work and from other people that I met who are still standing tall!

Again in college I met a girl who tried to take over my life and make me believe she was my best friend, where I found out she would try to steal every guy I dated/hooked up with. We were really close, a threesome of friends me T and C. It was awesome while it lasted --but T ruined it for everyone. Maybe one day I will get into the long ass story. But the moral of the story is that I am not friends with T anymore, but C is my best friend still. And its for the better. Removing a drama filled evil cheating back stabber liar from your life is always a positive sign. We actually have a huge conversation going on 20 something bloggers website, check it out!

So after the mess of people I have associated with in my life, I am glad to have the greatest girl friends that I have left.

(me and my girls surrounding me on my 24th bday)

Here is a good quote for them "Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart." ~Eleanor Roosevelt

Another one of my best friends is my mother. She has been there through EVERYTHING. Small, large, crazy, insane; you name it. When some people weren't there for me, she was. Every break up, every let down, basically everything. I hope to be that person for my child when I have one.

The last great person is the boyfriend. Where would I be without him? My best friend, my lover, and my travel partner. I am truly be myself and he loves me for who I am. We have had a great time in the past three years. Many ups and many downs, but over all, its been fun. It's pretty amazing when you meet someone who goes so well with you, its scary! People I have dated in the past just weren't like that--just one other one,,, but thats was a long time ago -- others were just assholes and cheaters. I wouldn't take it back though, those experiences made me who I am today.

This is us in Costa Rica at Volcan Poas. LOL we are so very cool...

Hey maybe one day we will even get married....

and have a house, 4 dogs, some cats, and 2 kids.. hahah oh and a garden and a pool.... Not asking too much right?!

Basically, I am dedicating my love to my friends, family and the boyfriend. Love them all so much... couldn't have made it where I am today without them.
