I know I've been missing from posting for minute, but I've been trying to handle school, a new job, and just a new way of life. I'm trying to steer away from the hum drum and venture into trying new things. I always wear my hair down or in a messy bun. I figure that I have such thick, voluminous hair that it's a shame not to try anything different with it. I came across some pictures on Pinterest and fell in love with the crown braid. I had to try it. So here i my final product. A little messy, but I like it that way. It looks very bohemian, something I would definitely wear all summer. I'd rock it to the beach, summer festivals, and day trips into the city. I'm defintely going to be wearing this style a lot more to come.

Last weekend I flew over to Colorado for my cousin's wedding. I have never been there before and was a little apprehensive as to whether I would enjoy the cold weather. In my past, I've never gone on a getaway to somewhere that wasn't warmer than where I am originally from.Well, I arrived and it was BEAUTIFUL. I loved the mountains and the beautiful landscape, it was so much different than back at home. It was so refreshing to look out the window or take a walk outside and just stare out at the amazing scenery.
I was so excited for the wedding. I expected it to be a beautiful celebration with lots of dancing and drinking and plenty of laughs. How was it, you ask? Well I never made it, so I can't tell you first hand. I got extremely sick in the middle of the night right before the wedding. I was hoping to recover in time, but unfortunately that never happened. I saw pictures the next day and it looked lovely. The bride was flawlessly beautiful and the reception itself looked wonderful. I am sad that I didn't get to make it, because it is a memory that will be talked about in future years I'm sure. I did enjoy what I experienced in the wonderful state of Colorado, and it changed my perspective of the wintry trip. I'd even love to make another trip out there sometime and experience what more it has to offer.

Last night I went out with some friends. They had made plans and invited me out on Thursday to join them. I was excited to come along, I mean I hadn't seen them in awhile, so of course I thought it'd be fun to catch up. On Friday I had second thoughts though, I wasn't feeling it as much anymore and I kinda wanted to just stay in and bum out. I feel awkward when going out lately. It just isn't fun anymore to me. I go out and I'm not looking to talk with anyone and have a meaningless conversation. I'm searching for different things in my life and I don't really care for that atmosphere right now. It just doesn't inspire me at all and I'm looking to be inspired by life. Well I ended up getting talked into going by my friend, D. So I put my big girl panties on and got dressed, but of course complained while doing so like any other girl that (1) I did not have anything to wear and (2) anything I tried on didn't fit me and I looked fat in. Silly girl problems. Well I went out and I didn't really enjoy myself at all, I guess I should've stuck with my gut, no pun intended. It happened to be Latin night and although I am Spanish, Brazilian, and Mexican; I am a white girl at heart. I mean don't get me wrong, I love my background, but I am not one to go out and dance to reggaeton music all night long, its just not my scene. I just stood by the wall all night and didn't even do much of swaying my hips. I also had a big bulky purse glued to my side the whole night that I wish I just left in the car because it was like my baby for the night that I wouldn't let go of. I drank a few drinks, not too many, but it wasn't even worth it to me. Anyways, I feel like I could of cared less to have gone out and I have no urge at all to go out again like that anytime soon. Never say never, but just not right now. I need to keep myself focused on pursuing my dreams, my goals, and excelling my life. I think for now I'm okay with being a homebody for a bit. I'm ready to spend my nights throwing on my jammies and popping in a redbox or cramming for my classes. I'm pretty behind on the whole 50 Shades of Grey bandwagon so maybe I'll catch myself up on that. I think I'm gonna be okay doing my thing.

This weekend was a blast. I haven't gone out in awhile, so it was fun to get together and have a night of drinking and partying with good people. Good friends, good times. It was a friend's birthday so we hung out, watched the UFC game on television, and had plenty of drinks and laughs. There wasn't a cake ready, so there was a last minute attempt at a cake thrown together with oreos and chips ahoy and i don't even know what else. It was a hot mess. Needless to say i had none of it whatsoever, but it was still cute and something to blow out candles on at least.

It's moving day today. It's always sad to leave something you love behind, but it can be bittersweet. It is a bit of a thrill to move forward with life and get ready for the next chapter. I will miss my beloved apartment. I had so many wonderful memories living here. I loved picking out the paint colors, decorating, buying furniture, and just spending time enjoying everything in it that I love so much.
