HAPPY Holidays!!!

Sorry I have been MIA... been super duper busy at work, and thinking what to do with my life.
I find myself  pondering about life and where I am headed.. 

well the Holidays are here and I want to wish you all Happy Holiday season. Tomorrow I am headed with my friend and we will be distributing nap sacks. 

 I should have posted this a while back specially for those of you who might had wanted to make a donation.. but We always have next year. 

Anyways I will be busy tomorrow with this and I will try to take some pictures of what we do, but i really do not like to take pictures of who we give the things to.. don't like to just does not feel right.

anyways I hope you all have a blessed time with all your loved ones, and remember to share with those who are less fortunate..

Hello and Greeting.. I feel compel to share this with you as Thanksgiving approaches I am so grateful for many things. And I am really thankful, even if we struggle and have to work hard I am one of the few who still has a job. I am thankful for my family and specially for my parents. The years have taken a toll on them , their brown hair now covered with silver streaks.. I am thankful for having them and for making me the person I am today.

Yesterday as I arrived home and my Niece and Nephew (they are living with us) were waiting for me to eat dinner. Well when I saw how happy they looked as they ate their dinner. It brought joy to my heart. I know they are being taken care of and they are happy. They have both told My mom at different times and when the other was not around " Grandma I love You". Children equate Love with care and when a parent/ adult meets their needs they equate that to love.

Today as I arrived to work I received my email from Feeding America (formerly named America's Second Harvest). I remembered the joy in the eyes of D and B and how much they enjoyed their dinner. And I realized how important food is to a child. And how No child should go with out eating.

So today I am asking any one who reads this Blog. to Get involved. Make a Donation to this great Org. and put warm meals at the table for other kids to enjoy.

I know times are hard but we still have a lot to be thankful..also remember all donation no matter how small can and will make a difference.

follow the link and make your tax deduct able donation and help feed America.

Thank You!!

I would like to take some time to Remember and Thank all the Military Service men and women who have given their lives to defend and protect this Nation.

Thank you to the mothers and fathers, brothers, sisters, wives, and children whose loved one is serving or has served in the military, and a Specially to those who have lost a loved one.

and to the Fallen Soldiers and the ones who are in Active Duty, and to our Veterans , I thank You for providing me with freedoms that have come at such a great cost.

I thank you for selfishly putting on that uniform and placing your life in harms way to protect this nation.

There are two things that I choose never to write or discuss because I have respect for others , but Today I will mention both of them .

1. Religion , Thank you for giving me the right to believe and worship GOD, and for that I ask him in the name of his only son JESUS to Protect and keep you safe. I ask him to be with you on those lonely nights as you walk in harms way , I ask him to be with you at your side and most importantly I ask him to bring you all back Home.

2. Politics.. I would like to express how much I support our Armed Forces, but I value their lives more than anything else, and I would love it if our new President would actually keep his campaign promise which was to bring the Troops back home, Instead of deploying more to Afghanistan!.

Empty promises is not what we need, a moment of silence is nice, but seeing someone alive is better. Staring at the Pictures of fallen soldiers for TV time is just a gesture.. deciding to bring them all back that is Action!!!

The say they are fighting terrorists abroad, in reality we have that here at home, worry more about your citizens and protect them and your service men.

Blood is to much of a High Price to pay. Some times a wise man .. decides to retreat and win .. instead of continue the fight and loose more lives.

HI.. Long Time...No hear !!

As I sit here . And remember how life used to be a couple of years ago, All I have to say Is Thank You God, for saving me and My Family. I have been busy and have not had time to update my Blog.. work, Family Obligations and Life.. have been overworking me. When that happens I know I need to slow down and take some time for me.. Usually that time always involves Jesus and My Church. when I am tired and Drained I take time and go more often to Church and recharge my self. So I have been doing that and Slowly I am feeling a bit better.

I haven't even gone to the gym in 3 weeks... OMG!! I can not allow that to happen I am on a mission and I will conquer..


break is over.. just wanted to tell you whenever you feel like life ,parents, work, school are drowning you.. always look up and call upon Jesus.. he is always right there waiting to give you a hand.

Blessings and XOXOX... Liz

Wild Things !!

I can't wait to go and see the movie , Where the Wild Things Are.. I love that book. It was one of those books that showed you that sometimes being a kid means having to deal with some stuff you really would rather avoid. And reminds you that with your imagination you can go anywhere.. let the Wild Rumpus Start!!

Fire Drill

Today we are having our Buildings Fire Drill.. I work on the 23rd floor of a building that has 44 Floors.. so we are doing a whole day of fire drills.. they can be so annoying.. and we asked why is it that if its a fire instead of evacuating the building we just need to walk down 14 of 15 flights of stairs??

I guess its to make it easy for the fire fighters to come and get us after the fire has consumed the building.. they only have to search specific floors...who knows

But in all seriousness when something does happen it won't be this well planned and executed. It pretty much will be every person for themselves.

gotta go I am on Fire duty..

Ribbons 4 Sale on Ebay









Hello!! fellow Princesses
I wanted to share some pictures of some of
my Ribbons that I will be having up for sale on
my Ebay Account. If you would like some
really Cute Bows Please come visit. I have
more colors , and I guarantee you will love
them. Let me know and I will give you the link.






Thoughtful *&*

As I sit here in my small prison away from my loved ones and away from the sunlight . I ponder the real meaning of life and I ask myself what is the meaning of life? Are we really meant to live it the way we do? for example what about the person who works 40 Plus hours a week and has no time left for a social life or for Family. What happens to family time.. Is that a term of yesteryear's? Does it still exist in this day and age? We are living in a time where we don't have to move to see our loved ones.. all you have to do is send a text, twitter, or blog about your life. But we still can't make time to see them face to face and just be there with them letting time pass us by . LOL.. As you can see I am on one of those thoughtful days when I ponder the true meaning of life. Some of us work hard to provide a pretty good life for our loved ones, but in the process we cheat them out of the most valuable gift we can give them, TIME.
yesterday I worked to give you a better today, Today I work to give you a better tomorrow.. tomorrow comes and I work to give you a better after tomorrow.. but when will I stop to work to be able to enjoy you today.. so that tomorrow when you or I are gone I will have no regrets.

Mac Haul!!!


Sorry I had not posted anything..Wed I took a day of from work for sanity and to take my Nephew to his First day in 1st grade , then I spend the day in the outdoors=0) .. Yeah and I love it. and yesterday we were busy at work..=(.

But let me tell you about Wednesday, after I took D to school , I had a date with MAC . This was my very first Mac Haul and I loved it. See I had gotten a gift card for Christmas from my B-Friend ( he accidentally broke my Channel Compact and decided to replace it with a Mac Card). And I did not have time to make it to the Store to choose my Items. YES!!! can you believe it , 9 months with a Mac Gift Card.. the insanity =).

He said the Gift card was to be used for Eye shadows. He had also bought me a 12 shadow Pallet and I was supposed to use the Gift card to fill it up. But I did not find colors that I liked (actually that I did not have anything close to ) . So I only bought 7 eye shadows. and I used the rest to get some other goodies.



1. Mineralized Skin finish
2. Mineralize Blush - Gleeful
3. Lip Glass - Cult Fave
4. Kohl Pencil - Smolder
5. Paint Pot- Indianwood
6. Eye Brow Pencil - Spiked
7. Courdoroy
8. Phloof
9. Goldmine
10. Shadowy Lady
11. Nocturnell
12. Contrast
13. Sushi flower
14. Kitschmas
15. Plushglass - FullFilled
16.Dazzleglass-Funtabulous

Ps. If there is anything that you guys think is a Mac must have please let me know..I really liked this Pigment called Pink Pearl, but they had sold out of it.. so I am waiting for it. Like I said this was my First time trying their makke up , I used Channel and I loved it, so I am not that knowledgeable as some of you out there.

PONYO!!!


Just got back from watching the Hayao Miyazaki Film "Ponyo". I loved it I am a huge Miyazaki Fan, if you have not seen any of his movies I highly recommend the following;and they can be found here

 http://disney.go.com/disneyvideos/animatedfilms/studioghibli

  • Princess Mononoke
  • Kiki's Delivery Service
  • Castle in the Sky
  • Whisper of the Heart
  • Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
  • Spirited Away

    His movies are amazing and they are all about "Girl Power" , his main characters are almost , always young girls who overcome obstacles and realize how strong they are inside. They manage to survive the obstacles and become  Heroines.  I love all of  his movies, such a gifted man and they speak to me, I become the characters and learn from them.  And with my nephews help, he easily identifies me as the characters in each of the movies, so  I am Kiki and he is my side kick black cat, I am Sophie and he is the magicians apprentice. when you see these movies you are transported to a dream like place and become part of the story. As you can tell I LOVE HAYAO MIYAZAKI!!!
  • Legally Blond the Musical



    I  am sorry I was not able to enter any new posts.. Have been super busy at work..=(

    But Yesterday I was invited by one of my friends to go see Legally Blond, The Musical at The Pantages  Theater . All I can say was that I loved It... Unfortunately the use of Video and Cameras was strictly Prohibited.  Never the less I had a blast.  

    Best of all we had really good seats at a fraction of a cost. Apparently when the shows are not getting sold out, you have the opportunity to purchase tickets at reduced rates two hours prior to scheduled show time.. so we were lucky and got to seat in the $95 section and only paid $25. 

    Thanks to the nice gentleman who told us this on Wednesday.. we saved some money.

    Wish the week was over !!!

    I am taking a break away from the solitude of work.. I can only say "I can't wait till the week is over!!!"

    Liz On WEIGHT!!!!

    So I am so tired today, I went to the gym last night all on my own and was determined to hold on for at least 30 minutes, Yes I was being lazy. But as soon as I hit the one mile marker the competitor in me kicked in and I told my self do one more.. and I got to 2 miles.. then i told myself you still have 8 more minute.. go one more.. and so I did.

    This mind over body game went on till I had completed one hour on the elliptical and after 6 miles , I was done and satisfied.

    As you can see I am on a weight loss Journey and I am taking NO Prisoners. I have to drop 20 more pounds.

    So let me tell you my Story, Love, Stress, Work (Office Work) and No exercise can all do a mean and big number on your waistline. And So I went from being a 103 - 115 lb Taekwondo competitor.. to a 120 Lb Macy's sales Associate to a 135lb +++ file clerk.. and from there it all went to hell.

    so last year around my B-day , I gave myself the best gift ever a membership to the Gym. And I have been going religiously to work out. Had a couple of road blocks .. Last year 3 months after starting I fell on my butt and fracture my tail bone. So it took me out for about a month and I gained what little I had lost..

    But Now I am finally seeing results.. and boy does it feel good.
    I have documented my self through the process and I can finally see my old body (pre weight) emerging from underneath the layers of fat.

    My clothes are fitting me loosely and I have to keep going. See its not about size, its about how good you feel about your self and I was not feeling good =(.. felt embarrassed all I would hear was "Oh My God you gained weight" or "don't gain any More weight" . What made it worst was that it was coming from people who were not Skinny or fit , but they had the nerve to criticize.

    So I am regaining control of my body and I am going back to a good weight for my height. And I feel good about myself.

    Along the way I learned that people can be mean and treat you differently just by your weight.. so sad.

    Happy Monday!!!! Happy Birthday MOM!!




    So hello everyone.. I am so sorry for not posting this weekend, but on Saturday I was in a comma induced by all the Smoke due to the Fires. YIKES!! we are actually close , on Friday as I was getting home, I was able to see the blazing mountains.. I said to myself.. hey that's too close..and that was the reason why I felt like I was walking around in an oven.
    Then it got better all that smoke made the already bad L.A. Air even worst,I had the worst allergies ever,I felt like I had a cold, all stuffy and my eyes were all red and Puffy.. So Saturday I just wanted to sleep and avoid the outdoors and air completely. And that Huge Cloud of smoke and bad stuff that was hovering over the horizon and really close to Downtown L.A.

    Sunday went to Church and went all around town to get my Mom her treats to celebrate her 62nd Birthday!!

    HAPPY 62nd Birthday Mom!!




    Yummy Strawberry filled cake from
     Phoenix Bakery in China Town
    and her special request, Thai Food. =) Yummy.

    Actually her birthday is today, but we cut her cake yesterday.
    * will post pictures later

    Obachans Garden... must see

    I am watching this Movie called Obachas Garden please copy this on your web browser and go see it.. very interesting story.


    http://www.nfb.ca/film/obachans_garden

    It is a really good movie based on a true story.
    The Story of a Great grandmother who lost her family in Japan 
    due to an Earthquake and the Dropping of the Bomb. 
    And how that affected her life.
    It makes me realize how blessed I am.
    And it reminds me how different the lives of women were in the past.
    I can't help but be so grateful that I am living in this time.
    More importantly it makes me appreciate the women who came
    before all of us. They had some hard choices and live 
    through some very difficult times. But they managed to survive, that is character.


    Heart Shaped Cherries

    Today as I was on my way to work , I felt like I was in the mist of a BBQ Party.
    The sky was foggy, smoky and the sweet smell of burning wood was all around me.
    I said WOW!! What's Burning ??
    Then I remember , that The Angeles National Forest was experiencing their yearly Fires.
    So I remembered that some time in July we passed through the Forest on our way to a Cherry Picking Farm.
    I wanted to show my nephew that cherries do not grow in supermarkets =D.
    I remember that when we got to the forest I was a bit scared, see I don't like wooded and lonely places, because I keep remembering those movies where the victim always ends up in the woods.
    I liked it even less when I notice my cell Phone had No Coverage.
    "Great "I said what if I have an emergency ?
    So not a cool feeling.. And the FIRE signs did not help. I saw signs that said
    "Warning Fire can Break at any moment"!
    Mmm.. maybe this was not such a good idea.
    But it turn out to be fun, here are some of the pictures that I found.
    We loved the heart shape Cherries and the yellow ones were so sweet.

    MixPod Play List

    I just found this cool site, and I was able to make a Playlist and add it to my Blog.. I love it..

    The Teddy bear is so cute if you want one just click on my bear and it will take you there.
    I added some of my Favorite songs.. Old Ones, New Ones, Spiritual Ones, I love Music.


    Ps. If you don't want to listen to the Music..  Please Pause it =)

    To GOD goes all the Glory !!


    Yesterday I logged into my Schools web site and I found pictures of my Commencement Exercise. So I went through the whole Library to see the expressions on every graduates face, and I loved seeing their faces. I saw Tears, Happy Smiles, Eyes deep in search for their love ones among the multitude of faces. And a whole lot of Cell Phones..=D

    And it brought back memories, on that day as I was walking towards the stage I felt this unexplainable feeling. My eyes started to tear up (after I had told myself "Don't cry" ).

    But it was unexplainable..I felt a rush of emotions all in seconds.. two steps away from the stage as my name was being chopped when being called out.. all I said was Thank You GOD!!
    I was overwhelmed by what I was about to experience, see I had a hard time getting my degree, I had family obligations to my parents that I needed to focus on , that took me away from school for a couple of semesters, but I have no regrets, I grew up and I became responsible. I had to get a full time Job and help support my parents, and on paper it shows that I was no longer a dependent student and now I was considered independent so they kinda want you to pay your tuition. So it was almost impossible to be able to work full time and afford to attend school. But I am so grateful to God that he opened the door and made it possible. I could not have done it with out the support of certain angels. First and Foremost THANK YOU!! GOD for giving me the strenght to accomplish this. Second Thank you to all my UCKG/IURD Pastors for their Prayers and their Guidance and for teaching me that "with out Sacrifice", nothing can be accomplished. At work my friends had to cover me on the days I was not in, And my special partner in crime who would go with me to look for supplies,and books that I needed . He would look on E-Bay and half.com for texts at a reduced price than what the book store was selling them. and I had to work on weekends to make up my work hours and of course a big Thank You to my HR. and former Manager and new manager for working with me and allowing me to work the weekends so that I could afford to go to school two days out of the week. And many co-workers and friends who believed in my potential and who supported me emotionally, always telling me how proud they were.

    That meant the world and kept me going. Specially on my many sleepless nights , see I had 2 days for school and had to get assignments done in the evening because I had work the following day. Many days I was running on 3 hours of sleep. All that rushed into my mind as I was walking up to the stage. And at that moment I was pleased with myself. I began my college career trying to please my mother. But I finished it pleasing myself and learning that there is no such thing as impossible, when we put our minds to it.


    But the best part was sharing this with my nephew and Inspiring him. Seeing the Sparkle in his little brown eyes and listening to him tell me how he is going to go to College and he is going to have a Blue car and take me shopping. That was as Master Card says -- Priceless!!





    • Abnormal Psychology Text book on ebay: $60
    • "A" on a term paper that took the whole night : $10
    ( Monster Energy Drink and Green Tea)
    • The Look on my nephews face as he wore my Cap and imagined himself a College Graduate:


    " PRICELESS!! "

    I also have a 4 year old Niece and I hope that when she gets older, I am also able to Inspire her.

    Beach Day and Shamu


    Hello and Happy Monday =D
    Hope you had a great weekend. I want to share some Pictures of my nephew Damien, who loves the beach almost as much as I do.. and he loves Shamu ( aka --Orca - Killer Whales)

    We act like clowns when we go to the beach, he pretends he is a stranded whale and I pretend like I am going to help him get back into water or try to capture him and take him home LOL. But what ever we decide to play, we always have a great day.

    Happy Sunday!



    Happy Sunday!!! Went to church and now I feel revived =)
    Today I am going to share with you some of my make up collection. I got these pallets from coastal scents.. except the Neutral Pallet I got that one from a seller on E-bay that sells all the same stuff that coastal scents. The Prices are almost the same so I buy from coastal scents because they are based in the US and I think that will make them more accountable for their products.



    I have both the 88 shimmer palette and the 88 reg. color palette









    I am so excited to share this with you guys.. see I am a Tomboy who loves pink and make up , but I don't have that many female friends to share things with. Except Gris, but I only see her at work =( and no time to play and my Friends from the Youth Group at church, but like I said I work and went to school so did not have that much time to socialize .

    What a Lovely Day



    so yesterday I went outside and it was such a beautiful day, a bit hot but still beautiful. 




    To my surprise i found this little fellow on my door, so i decided to take a picture and help him find his way back outside

    I just saw the trailer for this new movie called : LEGION... by Sony Pictures  set to be released in Jan 22, 2010
    It looks like a very cool movie.. can't wait to see it.. go to this site to see the clip.. or trailer.. http://www.legionmovie.com/

     " the last time God send a Flood this time he sends Angels"


    I just uploaded my first You Tube Video.. I have been wanting to do one in a long long time, but had nothing really interesting. I have a lot of Haul videos that I could have done, but my friends said that would be pretentious =(....I don't agree with that so I might just do them anyways =D

    Anyways my video which the quality was not that good.. I need to buy a web cam.. was about University and tips on how to make your first semester easier on you. 

    I have must haves for every college student

    College Bound University 101

    What you need  TO BE A SUCCESS AT SCHOOL

     BAG : to CARRY ALL YOUR BOOKS..make it cute and Fashionable, but if you have a ton of books get a rolling back pack , your back will thank you for  it. 

    JEANS: STAPLE FOR A BUSY LIFE - the Gap is having a sale on all their 1969 Jeans.. so cute

    Text BOOKS: TEXT BOOKS ARE EXPENSIVE SO REMEMBER THE PROFESSORS ALMOST ALWAYS ADD A BOOK ON RESERVE, IF NOT  YOU CAN GO to HALF WITH SOME ONE ELSE AND SHARE THE BOOK AND STUDY TOGETHER


    But if you need to buy the text go to Ebay or  Half.com.. they might have the book cheaper.. also don't write on your book if you are planning on reselling it. The bookstore will pay less for books with markings.


    Also  sale it to a student and not the bookstore, they will give you less than what it is worth or list it on ebay.

    LAPTOP: ALTHOUGH ALL SCHOOLS HAVE  COMPUTER ROOMS IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND AN EMPTY COMPUTER.  SO TELL YOUR PARENTS TO HELP YOU GET ONE..AND IF YOU ARE AND INDEPENDENT STUDENT THIS WILL BE THE BEST MONEY SPENT EVER .

    COLOR PENS..FOR WHAT Doodling.. YEAH  BUT ALSO FOR TAKING NOTES.

    TAPE RECORDER/ OR LAPTOP THAT RECORDS LECTURES: BUT ALWAYS ASK PERMISSION FROM YOUR PROFESSOR BEFORE YOU START RECORDING SOME PREFER YOU DON'T , WHILE OTHERS ENCOURAGE IT.

    NETWORK: No Not with friends.. that is a given , but network with the Faculty  and staff. Remember when you are looking for scholarships, internships and applying to Grad school you will need  3 letters of recommendations.  So let the faculty get to know you and let them see your interest and potential.. it will benefit you in the long run. Trust me 

    SUPPORT: Find a support group specially if you are a first generation college student. This will be very beneficial to you in the long run. 

     IF YOU WANT YOU CAN ADD ME AS YOUR FRIEND AND WHEN EVER YOU HAVE A QUESTION JUST CONTACT ME AND I WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP.

    PASS KNOWLEDGE; Just like I am doing, don't forget to pass it on to others remember we are the firsts therefore  We Need To Hold The Door Open To Let Others In, and not be selfish and close it behind us.


     MY RECOMMENDATIONS.: FIRST SEMESTER  take a light load.. an also take a class that you love, like dance, aerobics , swimming , art , what ever it might be.. that is very good to relax and it helps you a lot.

    If you are a bit nervous.. tell your self you are excited and  tell your self you are ready for this new venture.. try to do your best and don't be afraid to ask for help.. ask questions and you will be ok..

    Get to know your campus.. walk around and see what is where and also be cautious specially when you are in the parking structures.. remember almost all Universities are Open Campuses.. anyone can walk in

    ID::  you will have to take an ID picture.. so wear something that you love , you will be stuck  with that Picture..for a couple of years .. or until you loose it =(  but then you are going to have to pay to retake the picture and sometimes like in my school they want to use the same picture on file =(..ugh@!

    Well Good Luck and get your Brain on Study Mode.. Forget about all those mean HS Teachers that might have said you were not college material , I tell you,  you are and University life is so much easier than High School... you make your own schedule..and choose the days you want to go to school.

     

    Also make an appointment with your ACADEMIC advisor.. go to the Grown Ups.. not the student workers.. they can be mean and remember they are students. Make it a habit to go to the Deans Office and ask them to guide you in your college career and choose an Advisor.. it can be any Professor, so choose one that you like and that's looks like He/ She knows a couple of things.

    PLAGIARISM: Don't DO IT!! it can get you kicked out from School.. what is it? 

     I will use WIKIPEDIA http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagiarism

    Notice I am giving credit to the source and I am in no way claiming that this is my original thought  or work and neither are they , they reference 1995 Random House Compact Unabridged Dictionary.

    Plagiarism

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Jump to: navigationsearch

    Plagiarism, as defined in the 1995 Random House Compact Unabridged Dictionary, is the "use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work."[1] Within academia, plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud and offenders are subject to academic censure, up to and includingexpulsion. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination. Some individuals caught plagiarizing in academic or journalistic contexts claim that they plagiarized unintentionally, by failing to include quotations or give the appropriate citation. While plagiarism in scholarship and journalism has a centuries-old history, the development of the Internet, where articles appear as electronic text, has made the physical act of copying the work of others much easier.

    In other Words.. don't Cheat and copy someone Else's work, stories, thought be it written spoken or from On line sources with out giving that source credit. And by all means NEVER EVER buy a  Report or a Term Paper from On line.. Professors Know.. and that can and  will get you kicked out from school and it will be hard to get into any other respectable University , because you will be labeled as a Plagiarizer, Thief , Liar, Copy cat.. etc.. etc..

     Plagiariser - someone who uses another person's words or ideas as if they were his own

    stealerthief - a criminal who takes property belonging to someone else with the intention of keeping it or selling ithttp://www.thefreedictionary.com/plagiariser


    Thanks to Margarete she brought up a good point.. you also need " to pack up a first aid kit with a thermometer, ibuprofen, bandaids, tums, throat lozenges, antibiotic ointment and cold meds all in a plastic shoe box. With this kit, when you get sick in the dorm you won't have to run out to get anything. You can tuck into bed and have everything you need all ready. Oh and don't forget the Purex Laundry Sheets"  yes she is right don't forget this and also add  Baby Wipes  for every day use just in case the restroom is out of tissue and my Favorite Lysol wet Wipes.. you can never be too clean, use them to wipe your desk and anything that you might want to disenfect.

    Wishing for a day at the Beach



    So I am dreaming.. like always of the outdoors.. I wish I was there, sitting and just looking at the Beauty of the sea and having the sun kiss my hair and my skin.

    But I am no where near the beach and I know for a fact I won't be getting any sun.. I feel like I should be one of the vampires in Twighlight .....

    The great outdoors!!!







    So I will be blogging about random stuff.. so please bear with me.. my mind is a strange thing and it goes places with out my full consent.  Today was a long day at work. As as much as I am grateful to have  a J O B . I much rather be doing something else other than work.. work work.. 

    So I love the out doors and nature and I am working in a building on the 23rd floor in an office cubicle that looks more like a small closet that Carrie (Sex in the City) would say it was very very inadequate to hold her Blaniks.. but I am there 40 hours a week , yup 40 hours of my life are spent  caged up. 




    So when I can I like to go outdoors and take pictures of what Nature has to offer. Here are just a few of my pictures.. yes they are all my picture.. I have to figure out how to put a watermark on them, but till then enjoy.
