This is so dang addictive

I just created a xanga site, and I think I'll use it for poetry only. I created it to be able to comment on other friends' sites... but I'm afraid I'll get addicted. Just as with everything else that involves a computer... facebook, blogger, messenger, etc.
Oh well, I'll post something later!

The state of the world's human rights:
Economic interests, political hypocrisy and socially orchestrated discrimination continued to fan the flames of conflict around the world.

To Pippo8876...

...because I know she'll read this, eventually.

Dear CM,
Thank you for all you do. You're a great friend and I thank God for being so wonderful for crossing our paths in this life. You know I greatly appreciate you... even though I'm sarcastic, and sometimes I discourage you, and yell at you for calling me a loud Latina, etc.
Sorry I didn't bring any pupusas for you today. I would have given you some of mine, but I gave blood last night and I didn't have breakfast this morning so I really needed to have lunch (I don't like excuses either).
Please don't get mad because I won't be a sistah... that's just me.
And well... I think that's all I wanted to say.
Stay true, siempre.

Stay true... siempre

I'm a blue-orange (true colors personality assessment) and so I need someone (or a system) to stay on track. And that's with everything... classes, work, friends, and even my own life. Sometimes I have to be my "someone" to keep me focused. Like this summer... I carry with me a little green stone that reminds me of "stay true". Stay true to myself, to my beliefs, to the people I care about. It reminds me to stick to my commitment.
It helps me remember not to forget...
Not to forget where I'm coming from, and where I'm supossed to go. Not to forget what others wouldn't want to remember... that makes me who I am. It helps me remember to stay true and pure... even when no one's looking.

I wanted to say a little more... maybe a little more clearly. But sometimes it's too hard to explain what's in my heart... sometimes it's too hard to find the right words... or not to get angry.

Someone I recently met said...

"I love it when you find a person to talk to and you seem to have some many of the same things in common, and you just talk for hours but it only feels like minutes."

I feel the same way.

Where have I been?

All over the place...
I went to Glenn Rose, TX for NACA's Huge Leadership Weekend last week. I met a lot of great people there and I learned a lot from what they do at their schools. Somebody killed a snake! and we played mafia like crazy! I almost win once. I met a fine BM that I will probably never see again... but well, that's life.
Then I came back to the house on Monday night and left on Tuesday to see my friend April down in Hope, AR. She invited me to spend some time with her and her family this summer. It was during one of our study nights at the library. We were almost done with tests and were feeling pretty good about grades and all. The 4.0 GPA we wanted wasn't gonna happen, but we'll try next semester. Anyway, she looked at me and said "B, would you want to come home with me?" She's so sweet. So I drove over there in Berthito... I made it. Thank God! It was the longest drive ever... and I went all by my beautiful self :) I needed that. On my way there I called April a bunch of times because I just wanted to make sure I was going the right direction. About 2 hours into the drive I called and said "Dang, this is a LONG drive" and she laughed and said "I KNOW!" Her family is just so great! I got to meet her parents, her sisters, her grandparents.... some friends. It was so nice and I felt so good. The received me as part of the family. And my heart needed that. I love them all! They really do justice to the family name: Love.
I came back today and went straight to the LULAC reception for the state convention. I'm tired now... very tired.

"Not quite an A"

Today's been a LOOOONG day!
I had WCIV final at 7:30 am and ECON final at 5:30 pm. I'm tired and my beautiful body's sore... and I haven't been exercising lately, so it doesn't make any sense!
But despite all the studying, not so good news, and all... it's been a good day :)

Adrain made fun of my car, and I said "Hey! My car doesn't have tape!!!" (and I meant duct tape!). Then he said "What are you saying?!" and he drove off to Berthito (I walked because I knew if I got a ride, he would make fun of my car!), and when I got there he was putting some tape on my Berthito Babe!!!
Good times.

Gotta go do my final for painting class! Ciao!

Feliz Día de las Mamás!

Happy mom's day to all the moms out there. I went to eat with my mami and bought her a pretty ring that she loved, some roses, and a card that she was showing to everyone.

Thank God for I can celebrate my mami one more day!

Thank God for Books

I'm here in the library studying for my finals on Monday. I have a final paper for my ANTH class due on Wednesday, I also have two final paintings due that day. I have a little to do list on my planner... I need to finish with everything.
I'm researching for my final paper that's on "Art traditions in Central America: Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica" and I'm finding many interesting books!!! I need to spend more time reading... apart from studying for classes. There are some books I need to finish... like "Jazz", "Che", and "The Motorcycle Diaries" (This last one I want to read in Spanish).
Anyway... "FOCUS!" As someone I know would tell me... I'm going back to one of those so uncomfortable chairs in the reading room.

Yesterday's thought: Life is good, even thought it sometimes laughs at you... in your face.

I feel so stuuuuuuuuuuupid!!!
I'm still sick because of what happened to me last night and I'm still not able to talk about it. But I needed to tell somebody so I called Neal K this morning to tell him... he said "You totally pulled an Adrain!". That's when I realized that I can't tell Adrain about what happened after I've been making fun of him for so long! :'(

What goes around comes around.
