It has been exactly one week and a day since I’ve been in England, and I’m loving every minute of it. Meeting new people, establishing new friendships, seeing the world, all of it is just… breath-taking and exhilarating.
I finally feel a sense of relief doing this- something I’ve been anticipating.. ever since I can remember.
Right now I’m in Edge Hill University in Ormskirk.
I’ll be staying here for three weeks, then London for a week, Ireland for two weeks, and finally ending with a bang in Spain for a month! I’ll also be going on a weekend trip to Scotland next weekend.
It’s all a dream come true.
Coming here made me realize how much I have been missing out all this time.
Tonight was a great night.
Went into town with some of my lady friends at Ormskirk and had amazing Indian food with great company.
I’m pretty sure Michelle has inspired all of us to go to India next summer.
Hearing about her experience left us in awe and wanting all of us to jump on the next plane to see Taj Mahal and to volunteer in the slums.
Tonight I had red wine, meat samosas, garlic naan, chicken tikka masala, and some ice cream for dessert. Oh, and ofcourse- a shot of baileys. Mmm…. I am just about to burst and feel as if I am about seven months pregnant.
Tomorrow we’re going on an excursion bright and early to York at 8am.
Will write again some more soon, but right now I’m about to passsssss out.
Good night Tumblr.
Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays! (after Christmas and my birthday ofcourse hehe) I love it because I get to be surrounded by the people I love and eat awesome food! The best of both worlds. =)
Today, I pouted, whined, and complained because I didn’t get to enjoy my week off of school. Monday and Tuesday worked at RiRa. Today I worked 13 hrs straight for mom and dad, tmrw isn’t looking too bright either. I thought to myself “WHY do I have to do this when everyone else is having fun and enjoying their vacation…”
While being grumpy all by myself, I then noticed my frail teeny tiny mother who could not weigh more than 85 lbs. She had been working 17 hours straight today alone. 13 hours is nothing. That’s an average Monday thru Saturday for her.. And yet no complaints were coming out of her mouth— she was all smiles. Crazy lady… Lovely lady…
This Thanksgiving, I may not be at home watching TV, eating good food, being lazy with my cousins, but I am extremely, crazily, muchiously, thankful for my hard-working mother and father.
Short & sweet.
Very tired now…. I am…. OUT!

What a beautiful day!
The weather is so cool, breezy, and sunny outside!!!! ME GUSTA!
I’m now 1/3 done with eat.pray.love and I have got to say…
I think every female should read it! It’s so inspirational and we can all relate to it.
Throughout the book, the author often talks about her depression that she went through.. which got me thinking,
A close mentor of mine once told me if a person says they have never been depressed then, either—
A. They are lying.
B. They don’t know what depression means.
The topic of depression seems a little… sticky.
Who wants to talk about being emo? It’s an uncomfortable topic to bring up in a typical day-to-day conversation, but in the book through the author’s struggles and reading about her overcoming her hardships got me thinking that it’s okay.
It’s okay to be vulnerable.
It’s okay to not be okay.
I haven’t blogged since I was in middle school and xanga was “in”.
I hate writing but I guess this way I will get some practice and I can actually see my thoughts- instead of them just floating around in my head. Maybe I’ll even become good at it!!!! hahahah Right……………….
Plan for tonight: smoke a boint and start reading Eat. Pray. Love.
