updating finally [30 Nov 2004|08:23pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

So yeah, considering that i haven't updated in like fo eva, i thought i'd give it a try. but there was a reason why i haven't updated: i actually have been very busy. For some of ya'll who don't know, im in the process of recording a demo CD, so that's taking up a lot of time. And i'm still working at silly cold stones, and i need another job soon, i mean i feel soo old working there now. I mean Pascal's lil bro works there now.

So yeah, Alpha Phi has been goood, but i've had a couple bad times too unfortunately. Let's just say that sometimes the people u trust the most, don't turn out to be all you think they are. And i never realized just how much girls will sometimes choose ur guys before you...(if you want more, info., then call me up...it's too long of a story)

but anyways, i'll stop being sooo drama queen, because it feels like high school all over again, and im over that. becuase i'm really content with my life right now. I survived my first college semester...it's almost over!! and now i have a two month winter break to look forward too, soo i can't wait for that. I can't wait to see my oldie but greatie friends again that i haven't seen in a while and i can't wait to visit my familia on the east coast <3<3<3

[ mood | artistic ]

Hey guys. I'm sooo freakin tired and have been sooo busy. I had dance yesterday, on top of the million and 1 other erunds i had to run.

Kairos #1 at Chaminade left today. It made me think about my own speical Kairos experience.I wish the retreatants the best of luck.

So yeah my college "CSUN!!!" has been transformed into "SKY HIGH: THE HIGH SCHOOL OF THE SUPERHEROES." The movie SKY HIGH is being filmed at my school. When I was walking out of the library today, they were supposedly filming....and um i think i was in it.

Although I'm getting a lot of homework lately and a lot of work hours, on a better note, im sending out my demo!!!!

I just picked up some more copies yesterday, and am in the process of sending it out to whoever i can. I'll let you guys know soon when im performing.

This week is BIG SIS WEEK for Alpha Phi: I wonder who my big sis is, cuz so far i love the presents and I'm amused at the fone calls...hehe!!

Speaking of Alpha Phi, our formal is in two weeks, and I have no date!!
Go me.

College Life, Music Life, etc. [19 Sep 2004|12:22pm]
[ mood | pensive ]

So much has happened in the last few weeeks, that I haven't had time to catch my breath. I'm still dancing, working at CSC calabasas, and trying to promote my demo out there. Although I was totally against sorority life because I really wanted to focus on my career, I'm now actually in one. Who woud've thought? and I LOVE IT!!! The girls are awesome. They're totally by my side. However, I'm still focusing on my demo cd and auditioning and visiting every possible venue i can do. Basically I've been nusy. I miss seeing my loves ~ Lauren, Sarita, Lorraine<2, to name a few, and now its also cool hanging out with my new collge frends. I'm an Alpha Phi at CSUN!!! and I had an interesting night friday night, got really sick if u know what i mean, but my girls were there taking care of me. Anyway, ive learned my lesson and am probably not doing that again. As of now, I really am trying to search for my own independent spirit though. my parents need to understand that I'm in collge and that I need to be my own person for own years (after all most of my frends are away from home). Now, I love my parents sooo much, but I need to be myself. I donno what to do, but i do know that I need to still focus on lfe, while still livig it to the fullest.

COLLEGE [23 Aug 2004|08:05pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

haha, its funny how i started out sooo old last year, and I'm sooo young this year. I mean i worked soo hard to become a senior and now i'm a freshman again....but oh well. Anyway, today was my first day of college at CSUN, and i actaully have a nice picture ID for once, lol...but anyway it was sooo wierd going to COLLEGE today, not school, but COLLEGE. I mean its the first time iv'e ever been to a public school in my life, the first time my class is bigger than 30, and the first time i can wear whatever i want to. I was kinda overwhelmed by the amount of people at college because i mean this is the first itme I don't know everyone's name (lol, coming from chaminade) but it was definitely a cool experience.
~im recordin tomorrow, wish me luck

Well, my family is visiting from Philadelphia: My mom's youngest sister(out of 9) and youngest brother and his wife and two children Albe and Kailey, and my grandparents. It has been fun swimming by the pool, laying out in the sun, going to the beach, going sightseeing, and going to six flags with them. Besides that, school starts soon for me on the 23rd at CSUN, and ive been busy with other stuff too: music, work, family, and friends :-)

[ mood | thoughtful ]

Wow, I haven't updated this in like 3 months, well ever since Cancun....but sooo many goood times have happened to me in my life since then. I'm loving my best friends more and more everyday. I'm missing the friends that I may not be seeing for quite some time.I'm even missing the people that have treated me like shit throughout my life, but don't worry, you have only inspired me. However, more importantly, I'm loving my family, especially my parents, for all their endless love and support that I've kinda taken advantage of. Im loving the talents and attributes that I've been blessed with, and I'm finally putting them to a better use now....we'll see. I'm loving my music more and more everyday, and I'm loving life like no other.

In this next chapter of my life, I am going to further discover what life has to offer and live each moment I have to the fullest. However, memories of the past 18 years of my life will never be forgotten and the people i"ve shared it with will remain close to my heart.

Sorry if you think this is cheesy, but it's true.... I truly mean that too. Thanks ya'll <3<3

[ mood | very HAPPY, but sick ]

Puessssssssssssssssssss, (well) let's see (Do you see what I see) how I describe CANCUN MeHico.....Wow wow wow, Amazingly Amazing. Crazily Crazy, Beautifully Beautiful!!!! It was Awesomely Awesome!!!!!!!! I had th time of my life, and experienced a couple of new things...shhhhhh. Let's see, the plane ride on MeHicana (tehe) airlines was even funnn, even though we took a red eye and were exhausted...we still managed to get our margarita right when we got to the hotel, just like we said we would do. This trip was like Camp, but at a very different perspective... i mean high schools that graduated across the world and all over the USA were there, and every single person staying at the hotels and especially at my beautiful Casa Magna Marriott were drunk 24-7. The ocean water was gorgeous. Lauren, Lorraine, and I would just stand in awe at the aqua, cystal clear ocean, and white sand beaches...It was gorgeous!!!!!!!! Xel-Ha (this snorkelling, cliff jumping, tube rafting down the ocean river, and dolphin swimming experience was absolutely beautiful1!!! I really would recommend it!!!!! Then we also saw the archaelogical sights of Telum which is on top of a cliff overlooking once again the beautiful ocean.

Although we only got 3 days of sun, the hurricane there were an experience too...i wish i could've got more sunn while i was there, but it was hard in the massive rain and wind. However, me and the girls still managed to have the best time ever!!!! Lorraine claimed the bed the first night with her wastedness expererience (luv ya girl)and Mariela became our maid pen pal...lol. We went to a club every single night, even the last night when we were all reallllly sick!!! We went to Senor Frogs(The Yard Stick!!!!) The City(5 story club...biggest one in Cancun...with fire dancers and break dancers...and where lorriane met craig, and lauren met mauricio)then Coco Bongo (my favorite club, it was like a las vegas show with madonna, michael jackson, queen, elvis, salsa dancers and many other impersoantors, along with the amazing music and dancing on top of bars!!!!!) Coco Bongo is also where I met him...the tallest and very hotttttttt guy at the club....he was my abercrombie cowboy for the trip and hopefully we'll see each other again. I miss him. Yeah Atlanta guys are verrry cuuute!!!) But anyway, let's seee where else....La Boom(where I can boom with you) me and lauren and lorraine dancing in the telephone booth and bar again...Margaritaville> home of the best margarhitas....DadyO and Dadyrock (with all the Spanish trance music) Fat Tuesdays, and Bull Dogs....where me and him had fun again....I had the time of my life there ...let's see girls what did u make me have...Long Islands, white russians, tequilla, margarhitas, mango and strawberry daquirris, green apple martinis, blue lagoons,Pina Coladas, and CORONA!!!, and more!!!!...So even though we went to a club and travelled in ponchos, we still managed to have the best time ever, now i just need to recover from the flu!!!!! (lol)shoutoutz to lorraine's dad "Mas Tequilla" u were awesome lol....I loved this trip and im definitely going back for spring break next year...who's coming????????? Lorraine and Lauren, this trip was amazing, luv you soooo much

Sarita, I missed u soo much girl, i wish u could have been there, it wasnt the same without you, I luv u!!!!...

[ mood | chipper ]

Last Thursday was Parent's Day Mass. My mom and dad attended, and I sang Ave Maria which I used to audition for the music department at CSUN as an incoming freshman. I really enjoyed going out to lunch with my family at Sagebrush Cantina after the mass.

Friday was definitely tiite. I had Eaglemania at school, and I cheered at my last rally ever. The rally went really well though so I was very happy. Then Hadi and Taylor asked me to sing the star spangled banner for the Chaminade Playoff baseball game, and I did, and WE WON too!!!! I spent the day with Nicole and Ashley afterwards. We went to dinner and saw Shrek 2 which was SOOOOOO GOOOOD!!!!! I wanna see it again. Then, me and the girls got ready to go to the Chaminade party at Will's which was totally FUNNN!!!! Then Saturday came and there was SEnior Breakfast.Mr. Suppan was really funny and I loved the flowers and my mug. Colleen and I stopped at Lauren's casa afteras a surprise and Sarita was there too, and I love her hair. At night, there was another party at Colleens!!! Nathan and Lauren and Brandon came with me and slept over after. We watched father of the Bride part II, which is a classic funny movie. And we ate my mommy's french toast the next morning...YUMMMM!!!!

So tomorrows Senior Ditch Day and I guess I'll go to the beach, but i have to read a book and do projects too....FUNNN

But its okay, cuz school is coming to a close, graduation is approaching, and Cancun is coming!!!!!!!!!!!

[ mood | accomplished ]

I have a date to Prom!!!! Don't ask how it happened...really random. Well, considering my bid is due tomorrow, I had to ask someone to Prom that doesnt WORK AT CHAMINADE....lol. I went to work to ask NICOLE<3 what I should do. She said well ask kevin for advice. Kevin, I don't know why i never thought of him as a backup anyway. I mean we're like really good frends!!!! WTF. But anyway, while i was asking him for advice he gave it to me, but kinda hinted that he would want to go to Prom to me. So I went to get a daisy outside and asked him to Prom in front of the Cold Stone's customers..."awwwwwwwwwwwwe"

Anyway, so even though i asked him for advice, I am now randomy going with him to PROM!!!! Im soo excited!! I hope itll be funnn!!! We'lll PIMP it out....

Tiring weekend [16 Mar 2004|06:01pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

Well considering that Monday night was the first time i slept in 64 hours, I'm doing ok. It's not like I was partying either...it was cheer and work. P.S. I have been reading all of your ljs...and im sorry i cant post on them. I miss spending more time with the girls... Lorraine, I hope your feeling better <3<3

Thursday, I had an AWESOME night working out with Lauren and Shawna at LA Fitness with that HOTTTT kickboxing teacher...man what a great class. It's sooo different then ballet and jazzz...lol. Then we got a FREEE MASSEGE....how awesome is that...and ended the night with a refreshing Jamba Juice...isnt that just "ideal?" Well we thought so.

Friday was chill. I went to sushi with miss lauren and jason and matt. We had such a nice lunch and THEN, a case involving taking board shorts at the mall occurred ... RANDOM. Then, after trying to wait for matt, the three of us headed off to the beach, but with Miss Sarita toooo xoxoxo. At the beach i met up with Nicole and Ashley. It was cool, literally, and we weren't really there for that long. I'd have to say that everyone had more funn in my car than they did at the beach....winkwink...hehe. I ended the night with a NEVERENDING 5 hour line at cold stones.

After, my early morning practice for cheer, I spent the day in Santa Monica for Nicole's birthday. The singing Yoda singing "Oops I did it again" was definitely funny...hehe. Anyway, Happy Birthday Girl!!!!

Sunday morning I had to wake up at 4 am!!!! for a cheer competition. We did very well though. All of the hard work paid off!!!! Luv you all!!!! My daddy went with me which was definitely chill and the whole team went on Jurassic Park after which was definitely fun...right colleen?? hehe

Since then, I've had homework fashion show practice, yogilates, dance classes, and yes...more cheer.
