I just slid my ticket across the table & I said, "Sorry guys. I gotta see about a girl."

I was editing these photos Thursday/yesterday morning while I was watching Good Will Hunting on Netflix. If you haven’t watched it, please do because it’s a great film.
These photos were taken on Wednesday before I had dinner at Alexander’s Steakhouse.

My favorite lines from the film:

  • Sometimes I wish I had never met you. Because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.
  • No one could possibly understand the depths of you.
  • Chuckie: Oh, I don’t know that? Let me tell you what I do know. Every day I come by your house and I pick you up. And we go out we have a few drinks and a few laughs, and it’s great. You know what the best part of my day is? It’s for about 10 seconds from when I pull up to the curb to when I get to your door. Because I think maybe I’ll get up there and I’ll knock on the door and you won’t be there. No goodbye, no see you later, no nothing. Just left. I don’t know much, but I know that.
  • Sean: my wife use to fart when she was nervous. She had all sorts of wonderful idiosyncrasies. You know what? She used to fart in her sleep. Sorry I shared that with you. One night, it was so loud it woke the dog up. She woke up & would go like, “was that you?” I’d say, “Yeah.” I didn’t have the heart to tell her.Will: Oh, God. So she woke herself up?Sean: Yes. Oh, Christ. Ahh…but, Will, she’s been dead 2 years, & that’s the shit I remember. It’s wonderful stuff, you know? Little things like that that happen, those are the things I miss the most. The little idiosyncrasies that only I knew about, that’s what made her my wife. Oh, & she had the goods on me, too, she knew all my little peccadilloes. People call these things imperfections, but they’re not. Aw, that’s the good stuff. & then we get to choose who we let into our weird little worlds. You’re not perfect, sport. & let me save you the suspense. This girl you met…she isn’t perfect, either. But the question is whether or not you’re perfect for each other. That’s the whole deal. That’s what intimacy is all about. Now, you can know everything in the world, sport, but the only way you’re findin’ out that one is by givin’ it a shot.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. –The Great Gatsby

I’ve grown quite fond of this park because of its large space. The Lake itself is so much bigger than I had actually thought. I had the chance to actually explore more of the park/lake a little bit & it was so huge that I couldn’t walk around & explore the whole thing.
When I think of a large Lake, I think of two things. One of them being The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’ve always thought that it must be nice to have a mansion or house next to a lake with a dock during the summer. I’d like to be Jay Gatsby for a day, but just the whole mansion, lavish-party-throwing bit.

everyone always bugs me about not showing more of my face in photos. I can’t pull off the whole “no expression, but still flawless” look. I just suffer real bad from RBF so that no expression thing doesn’t really work out for me.

I added some new additions to my closet this weekend. I feel like my wardrobe seriously lacks in the accessories department. I just get so lazy to add everything to my outfits, but I feel like accessorizing definitely helps a basic outfit turn out to be more stylish.
I’m currently lusting for more statement necklaces. I’ve noticed that it makes basic tops or blouses look more stylish without over-accessorizing. I’m just really picky with my jewelry because I want to get something that goes with most of what I already have in my closet.

Prom Season

Prom Season

My niece texted me a while back about Prom dress shopping & then followed up with my today about what dress she bought. I’m not exaggerating, but I love the dress she got. It wasn’t too expensive & it suits her so well. I wanted to tear up after she showed me her dress.
I got real nostalgic after talking to her about her plans for Prom. I made this small collage because I actually miss Prom dress shopping.
For both of my proms (Junior & Senior), I wore a long dress with an open back. I always preferred a long dress because I felt like it was more elegant & classy. & I loved having the open back because it added a sort of spice to the dresses.
My Junior Prom is easily one of the best times I’ve ever had. It was held at the Fairmont Hotel & one of our friends got a hotel room so we all got ready, hungout, took photos, etc. before heading down to the ballroom for Prom.
My dress was $25 or less, my cousin did makeup & hair (which stayed throughout the entire night), & I didn’t have a date so I went with a bunch of friends who didn’t have dates either & it was literally just one of the best times ever (aside from almost getting kicked out because my friend let me sit on his shoulders & one member of the staff told us not to do that anymore. LOL). My friend & I actually did that again for Winterball our senior year & a photo of me on his shoulders ended up being blown up on one of the yearbook pages. AHAHAHHAHAHA.
If I could relive that entire night all over again, I would in a heartbeat. I had so much fun with my friends.

I hope that in a couple of years I can still fit into my dress. It still fits now! But it’s starting to get a little tight around the abdomen area );

Adult loaded questions

Had a potluck with friends a few days ago. I rarely get to see any friends now a days because everyone’s usually busy or it’s tough trying to accommodate around everyone’s schedules. Although not everyone was there, I still had a good time regardless. I really do miss everyone. It’s nice seeing almost everyone again. We’ve never really ever just chilled at someone’s house, eat, & catch up so it was great chill day which is what I felt we needed anyway(:
We played Adult Loaded Questions & it was my first time playing it, but I thought it was great. I like it better than Cards Against Humanity because it allows you to be more creative whereas Cards Against Humanity has all the cards set for you. I apparently won because I kept getting the favorite vote for answers. It’s fun when people don’t expect the kinds of answers I put out there ^_^ I swear to you that my mind isn’t that dirty. It just let me be more creative that’s all. haha. 

It was a much nicer day than the previous. Mid-70s today & I feel like it’s only getting hotter. I have a slight cough/cold, but it could be because of the weather change or because I’m working with about 3 other people who are currently sick ); But hey, that doesn’t stop me from dressing with the weather!

Niece Lauren’s 1st Birthday Party

I don’t have any photos of the birthday girl to respect the privacy of certain family members, but it was a nice 1st birthday for my niece Lauren. I can’t believe she’s 1 already. Every time my nieces & nephews get older, it’s always hard for me to believe.
I thought it was going to rain today, but thankfully the weather cleared up. Albeit, it was a bit windy, but we all toughed it out. It’s always nice to see all the kids play together regardless the age difference. Life is so much easier as a kid. You get to eat, play, have fun, & it was easier making friends. I definitely miss those days.

It’s pretty much an unwritten rule in my family that if you bring over a significant other, prepare to get roasted. AHAHHAHA. Felt so bad for my nephew Harrison. My aunties, uncles, & cousins were definitely making him a target at one point. It was embarrassing for him, but funny. No hard feelings ever though. It’s definitely all love ^_^

I do have photos of family members, but I’d like to respect their privacy by not posting their photos to the public. I post most personal photos on my facebook. I’ll post my most personal photos on here only if I get an “okay” by the parties included. Sorry!

When the photographer is unavailable, I have to resort to my tripod & my closet as my backdrop. I guess it sort of works? I don’t actually like this photo as much as I want to because I feel like it makes me look fat. I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW. I’M NOT -___-
