“Not really sure how I feel about it

Something in the way you move.

Makes me feel like I can’t live without you

and it takes me all the way.

I want you to stay.”


Mother’s Day

Another successful Mother’s Day! The more I grow and the farther I am from Mumsie the more I appreciate her. I love my mom. I wish I could do more for her. I’m working on it!

May 10, 2013

Back in Texas for a few days! It had been almost half a year since I was at home. My mom cried at the airport when she saw me. Why are mothers so emotional? I guess I’ll never know. Home feels the same, but a lot of high school and college life memories are still there. I’ve grown so much over the years. I’ve missed this place, but I’ve been busy adjusting to the new life. Getting the rest of my belongings and having them freight shipped on Monday. I’m so lucky in life right now.

Thousand Steps




Adventure location: Laguna Beach, CA

Monday afternoon

Well my coworker and landlord both suggested I visit this place. I did and it was wonderful. The stairs leading down to the beach was enough of an exercise. It was very steep but once I was down the view was fantastic. I sought out for the cave but was told that the sand rose so high it covered the entrance to the cave. The other end of the beach had another cave and it was also a beautiful sighting.

September is my favorite month. It’s when the weather starts to cool down, even in Texas. You know summer is over, and school begins for some people. It marks the transition from summer to autumn, and it feels wonderful in the morning. September is also the the month of my birthday. ❤

Nothing like being up at 8am and going to the piano to play a song and practice. The sun is barely coming out, and the weather is in the 50s. It just feels different in September.

Dollaganger series

I don’t know how many hours I spent pouring over the 800 page of the Dollaganger series. Four straight days just for two books, and there’s five in the total series. I think I will be a zombie for a whole week while I devote to reading this and this only. I own a couple of VC Andrews books but never got the time to read them. I happened to have purchased another one to add to my collection while in Washington, and decided to read it.

The Dollaganger is the first series that I’ve read by the author and even though
it’s written for young adults and teenage girls, I am hooked. Not the same way as a teenage girl gets hooked on Twilight.. No. There’s so much drama to VC Andrews’ writing that it makes Twilight happy go lucky. I mean, incest is rampant in the book, then a love interest between a 15 year old girl and 40 year old man. They marry in the end when he’s in he’s nearing 50 and she already has two baby boys by different fathers. Yes, “?” is the reaction. But while young girls love drama they also expect some kind of happy ending, and well, the marriage is good to hear. However the old man dies and the heroine continues the story living (“in sin”) with her brother. And yet I can’t put down the third book! There’s something about Andrews’ storytelling that draws me in. I’m so glad there’s three more books to this story. I can imagine what I will be doing for the rest of the week.

Sighs. Reading books can be hazardous to one’s health! You tend to neglect everything else…
Like studying for my board exam ugh.
