The nice weather is back. I can drive with my windows down and Annie can peak her little head out and pretend she's flying. Went up to the dog park today, I love going there, especially with my friends. Bunny & Gomez are fun to watch.
Last couple of nights I've been hanging out with this boy. He's very very different than any other boy I’ve been interested in, and much older but I’m into him. He’s sooo considerate and aware of everything. So far he’s done everything right, a reeeal gentleman, I guess it kinda scares me at the same time.
We'll see if it goes anywhere I wanna take it slow slow slow.

up on cripple creek [23 Feb 2007|02:31pm]
It has been a while since I've written.
I've been prety happy lately. I cleaned my porch, kitchen and living room yesterday instead of going out and getting drunk (something to be proud of). I put my new plants out there, and a little side table I bought, it looks cute I think.
So, only a couple of weeks until I go to California, I'm excited about seeing Elya and spending time on the beach, oh and the San Diego zoo animals for sure. The four volume documentary I've been watching is really awesome. The Life of Mammals from BBC, it's so wonderful, great shots of animals and all the weird stuff they do with perfect music to complement. This time when I go to the zoo, I'm going to read the little information plaques and try and learn some stuff.
I'm also looking forward to warm weather,riding on Peytons boat, and possibly going home and doing some shopping in Mexico. My new bike is pretty sweet, Christina said it looks like a cupcake, so I'm either going to name it magdalena or chicle (<--in spanish) I want to go out to this park by Lake Ray Roberts and ride on the trails out there, its really calm and I went on a walk there with Annie, and saw people riding bikes ( good idea!!) .
I have to call my Mom because she still gives the best advice. Travis has been doing some stuff I don't approve of, and he doesn't take me seriously when I try and explain it to him. Oh and I got my hair cut.

Hi! [14 Aug 2006|02:31am]
I am listening to an album of a Spanish rock band called Los Planetas. The singer sounds really sad even when he's saying nice things.
This summer has been great. I've spent a lot of time with people I love. I got to go to Europe with my best friend. I saw a bunch of my Spanish friends that I hadn't seen in over 6 years. I got to spend my birthday with my family in Mexico. I went to a bar with some old friends from JR HIGH! My cousin Samantha has come from Harlingen and spent a couple of weekends with me. Travis and I went on a roadtrip with Marifer and Geri. Sarah and I have hung out almost every day since we've both been in town, it's nice to hang out with someone you've known since you were 8. I'm really really comfortable around her, I hope she feels the same way.My Mom is doing really well, she just got back from a sectionals tournament in Corpus that she plays every year. Travis is doing good too, he is excited about going to UNT. Right now he looks like a ducky cuz he busted his lip this weekend, I know a boat was involved but I'm not sure exactly how it happened.
There is no update on my Dad. The whole idea will never completly settle, but I've started to accept the situation. Along with the support of my family I know things will be ok.
I can't wait to start school, and move into our new house :) I've only been in it once, and it was for less than 5 minutes so we're just guessing on what furniture will fit. Anyway, being 21 is good. I'm waiting on my new HORIZONTAL license to come in. And that's that.

I want to keep updating this thing, even if its only for me. There is no news on my father, nothing worth mentioning anyway, just rumors that turned out to be bullshit. It has now been over 6 months. I am in Mexico now with the family, I came here because my cousin asked me to film the birth of her first son and just to visit. I thought I was going to leave without seeing him, but luckily he came just in time. He was born today at 4:10 PM his name is Santiago. It was a crazy day, she went through about 10 hours of labor only to find there were complications and he couldnt come out. She had to have a Csection, but he is perfect.My cousin has always been like my big sister so seeing her hold her baby for the first time was really something. I leave tomorrow morning and I´m sad.I love Mexico, I love being around lots of family, all the rituals, and just everything about this country. I would even consider living here again, as an adult. I leave for Spain in less than a week, I´m happy.

Lately [09 Feb 2006|09:50am]
Everything has changed for me in the past 2 months. I left my apartment in Denton and moved in with my Mom in the Valley. I kept it to myself for the most part because I didn't want to be asked any questions. I don't have the answers to any questions,I can only speculate, like everybody else. On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving my Dad got in a black SUV with Mexican license plates and no one has seen or heard from him since. A man made three trips and took 14 horses from his ranch immediately after. We opened an investigation with the police, but someone convinced my Dads brothers that if we stopped the investigation they would let him go. Well that didn't happen. We've been told we're dealing with very dangerous people. I'm about 2 months and a week into this and it still doesn't feel real to me. I feel really sad some days because I start to wonder what my Dad might have gone through the past couple of months, or whether he's still with us or not. I think its especially hard because we never had the best relationship. Some of you might know my Dad is one of 11 siblings. We have a tremendous support group, my Grandfather has done so much, and I am grateful to have such a unified family.
I plan on going back to Denton to visit during my Spring Break, which is a week before UNTs Spring Break. Hopefully I can convince Amy to come with me.
I have a new cell phone number, 956-432-9893.

go out and sit on the lawn and do nothing... nobody does it anymore [04 Nov 2005|11:48pm]
This is one of my first Friday nights alone in a long time, and I am not complaining. It's nice to sit and do something alone, while listening to something you enjoy. I have been listening to the new Fiona Apple over and over, and I think it's great.
Annie is asleep on our bed, she gets tired by 11pm and there's no waking her up. She had a lovely evening last night, she met Wicky's poodle "Poopy Monster" and they ran all over the house doing things that dogs do, and then she had a play date with Poncho ( I think he's a shnauzer mix) but we don't know, and that was adorable. They chased each other for an hour jumping up on coffee tables and other furniture, and finally settled down together, and we got a great picture. I want to post my pictures from barktoberfest which I thought was an awesome event, I had never seen so many dogs in one place together.Annie was dressed as orphan annie and when they called her up she got nervous and wouldn't walk across the stage.
I met with my advisor this morning and it turns out I am ready to attend nursing school next fall. Now it's only a matter of where I get in. It should take me 2 years, and then I'll be an RN with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I really can't wait to take classes in procedural nursing and get through these science courses. Bioligy of Miroorganisms.. I lose interest quickly.
I don't have much else to report, I'm making it a point to write something once in a while. I know no one ever reads anymore.

Well I'm just going to write something because I haven't in a while.
I'ts weird knowing that I've had this thing since I was in high school. My best friends in high school used to have them to and for reasons unknown now both have deleted them! If nothing else I will keep this journal so I can browse back into 2003 and see what I was doing. I don't work at the courtyard any longer. It's been so difficult for me to get my registration sticker and I'm tired of getting tickets. My Dad has lost the paper saying that my Mom owns the car and my mom has had trouble contacting the DPS because she is a school teacher and the hours conflict, so I'm just not going to drive until my Mom finds a way to fill out paper work so that I can begin the process of renewing that sticker. I haven't driven in over a month.
School is fine, it's the only thing I do all day now that I don't work. I try and work out with my tapes every other day, ride my bike around denton,and do some homework but that's pretty much it.
I feel like I have less friends now, I can't just pick up the phone and call people because I don't really have that many people to call. I guess it's just akward because I don't see anyone regularly.
Mike and I are doing very well. We've been together for a year now and things are going good. We've designated Saturday as a date night and we will take turns planning dates for each other. Last Saturday was my turn and I think it went great! I think the plan is to do things we did as a kid, Mike and I do that a lot and I like it. Last spring break we drove through the safari thing in San Antonio and it was very cool to share that with him. I remember my brother making fun of me for being afraid of the ostriches and then crying his eyes out when one came to his window.
My mom is doing well. I'm so proud of her, she's actually thinking about dating. She's on a new health kick and experimenting with online dating! It's really the only option when she lives in the valley and everybody knows each other ( My dad is down there also ) . I don't hear from him much, I just know he's doing okay. My brother is at Temple College playing tennis. I'm glad he has a strict coach that makes him practice every day and dedicate time to homework. I think he would do badly if it weren't for the pass/play rule.
Other than that I do keep up with people I used to consider good friends, I read your journals and myspace posts, I still care!

I haven't written in here since the summer began. I'm taking a course, political science, and I've got a lot of complaining to do about that class, but I just don't feel like it now. I've been working 6 hours a day Mon-Fri, which may not seem like that much, but when my daycare runs at state ratio of 1 teacher per 26 kids it's hell.
Mike and I have been given the Okay to move into our new condo ( 2 months free!) . I will post pictures when I get them. I like our place, we've invested lots of money, in nice things bought at ikea and world market and some of our more fancier things were donated by michael's family.
I will be in the valley from July 9-17, which will be awesome. No school, and no work. I miss my family anyway, I've already made plans to meet up with Alex H. for coffee when I'm in town, and I'd like to catch up with anyone that I haven't really seen in the past 2 years.
I don't remember it being this hot last summer, I hope everyones summer is going good.
Elya will be here on Saturday

So this is the first time since I've had computer access since I've left Denton. The drive took me a total of about 12 hours and 45 minutes, because I hit traffic in Dallas,Waco, and Austin. I was very frustrated when I got home.
I had a very nice stay with Elya in Austin, her home is very very nice. I slept on the couch, and woke up with two cats, im not sure how I felt about them just sneaking up and sleeping with me, but I guess they weren't that bad, I normally hate cats.
I've been shopping a whole lot, and going to random Adult Christmas Parties with my Mom. This woman was trying to set me up with her 33 yr. old son that lives in Arlington, even though I kept telling her I had a boyfriend. She gave me his number... Anyone wanna date an architect that lives 1/3 of the year in London?
I hope everyone has a merry christmas, even though my parents are weirdos, I do enjoy being around them, and my brother of course who has grown up a whole lot, this is the first year he's bought gifts with his measly paycheck from Abercrombie&Fitch, who knows what he got me.
Again, I hope you all enjoy your Christmas.

For some reason this week doesn't look promising. There's nothing to do really, I was done with my finals last week. I've got work for about 4 hours each day and other than that, nothing planned. I know I have unofficial plans with Liz and Nathan, but that all depends.
So work in a couple of hours, and nothing to do...
Anthony you didn't come see the house

This weekend was fun.
Didn't do much Friday, just sat around with Sean, while he drank and we listened to the the dubliners.
On Saturday, we went to Peters show at Club Clearview. PETER.. you guys were awesome. You got skills on the harmonica.
Today we went to the Angelika with every intention of seeing THe Motorcycle Diatries but they weren't playing it. Fucking Moviefone. So we saw Finding Neverland, and it was really good. Johnny Depp is in it, and Dustin Hoffman, it was super sad & everyone was crying. I mean everyone. The man next to me with his wife, and all the smu college girls, me, mike, everyone.

I have to write about this because it took me by complete surprise and that rarely happens.

About a month ago, when I was sick with tonsillitis, I had to wake up at about 8am on a Saturday to go see the doctor. No one is awake that early on a Saturday in Denton. Mike drove me to the doctor, and waited with me until it was all done. Afterwards we had breakfast at The Cupboard, and I went around checking out all the expensive natural lotions, and soaps they have. I found a whole bunch of them, and I made him smell some of them. There was this one skin care company called Kiss my Face that made really good soaps and lotions but they were just too expensive. They were made with Alpha Hydroxy Acids that are only found in fruits and sugar cane. We didn't buy them, and went somewhere else. It was starting to get cold then, and my skin was dry so I got some cheap raspberry lotion at wal-mart that night. I set it right by the sink, and I've been using it since then on my elbows and hands before I go to bed. So anyway, yesterday I went to put some on my hands and it had been replaced. Mike went out while I was at work, found the Kiss My Face lotion that smells like real peaches, bought it, and put the new one there instead. For a second I didn't know what was going on.
I'm just really impressed with him; I didn't even think he was listening to me while I was giving him my spiel about how great all that stuff was.
I can't believe he remembered =)
