i admit...

I do try to stay positive, 
but sometimes

i really just wanna scream
(with a smile of course)

we all have slip ups

a quick word...

You control your emotions, don't let your emotions control you. 

People in life mess up....myself included.  Friends, lovers, shit, even family at times... and you can't control them.  The only person you can control is yourself.  Nobody is perfect... so learn to forgive... after all, isn't forgiveness the attribute of the strong.?  Count your blessings and not your misfortunes.  A positive anything is better than a negative nothing.  

Promise yourself to be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

i have been wanting to go roller skating for almost a month now... so last night, i finally went.! yay.  good thing TMZ wasn't around to see how wobbly i was when i first got out on the rink.. but, i eventually ((kinda)) got the hang of it.  i'm thinking i should go more often.  and buy cool racing skates like Vicky's bf... or not. 


[more pics when vicky comes home w/ her camera]

oh, and this was the song i put on repeat while getting ready.. it's from the ATL movie soundtrack ((u know.. the roller skating movie with T.I.)) and got me all hyped up.

not at all focused.


i am currently working on something very important on the computer.. or at least trying to. it might help if i sat at my desk the right way instead of propping my feet on my bed like i'm chillin.  it might also help if i closed photobooth.. and ichat... and itunes.. and turned off my cell phone. but, i can't. and i am starting to think that i am choosing to be distracted. i need to focus. i'm working on a deadline here. ahhhh.

i woke up at 7 am this morning for NOOO reason.. 
this out of nowhere thunderstorm woke me up and i couldn't go back to sleep, so i just chilled in bed, eventually dosing back to sleep... i think. 

it was pretty bad outside all morning.  
yeya says there's hurricanes forming in the oceans. 
i was suppose to go to the beach today, but that's not happening. 
instead, i think i'll bake... and read... and return emails.
... search for new bedsheets and a lamp.
i'm kind of itching to do a DIY project. 
i've got some ideas for my room.

i took yeya to the library yesterday. 
she checked out a book about the crisis of islam... in english.
so now she asks me what words mean all day. 
part of me wants to tell her to just get a book in Spanish next time, but i like that she's challenging herself. aaaand i like that she checked out a book she can learn from instead of a novel, like me.
i picked out another Jodi Picoult. 
Change of Heart.

happy father's day

i am awake but my eyes are still closed. i feel his face so close to mine.. and i know he is smiling.  then.... 

.... he pokes my eyes and yells 'GOOD MORNING TIA'   lolol 

another one of jamel's 8 am wake up calls.. i really needed to sleep in today to make up for Friday night's lack of. nearly impossible when jamel is here. i had promised i'd make blueberry pancakes today, so i decided to suck it up and get out of bed.  my mom already had my cafe con leche ready for me when i got out of the bathroom...this woman is amazing.  and on a day that we are supposed to be celebrating our father's and how great they are, i can't help but hug my mom and say happy father's day.  i looked at the time, it was 8:30.. too early to call my dad.  he was probably taking his siesta since it's 2:30 in Spain. 

soo i took out the box of pancake mix and the box of blueberries from the fridge.. whipped up a mean batch of pancakes and throw them on the stovetop griddle.. threw in some fresh blueberries before i flipped them.  i made two without the blueberries... just in case jamel's not a fan.. ((yea right.. this kid eats everything))  for me, moms, and yeya.. threw some fresh blueberries on top of the pancakes and syrup. they loved them.  

killed some time with jamel on photobooth.. he thinks it's hilarious to see himself on the computer screen.. and waves to say hi to me even tho i'm sitting right next to him. 



i think he was wondering where his nose went.. lol

theeeen, i signed on skype and called my dad.. jamel and i wished him a happy father's day.. turns out that in Spain, father's day is in March. did the whole SKYPE thing for a while.. talked to him.. jamel and the felix did their version of talking and now it's time to take jamel outside to his little pool. 

and later.. gotta go wish yeyo a happy father's day. bring him some fresh flowers.  i miss him. a lot.

So i went downtown Wednesday night to the same restaurant my sister and Nicole took me to for my birthday.  Remember that incident.. the whole 'i don't have my I.D.' mess.  So i sit down and order a beer and guess what.?! i do NOT get I.D.'d. lol. of course not. i mean.. the day that i really do have it, why would they need it.?!  i ran into the manager later in the evening and we had a good laugh over it.  i really like that place. good food. good atmosphere. and good beer.   


i liked this song before the remix.. but i love, love, love this version.  had to share.
