color outside the line

color outside the line, originally uploaded by aquarelita.

i've been studying so hard this week. it has been craaaaazy busy, but i had to blog this. in my commute to school this morning (i was early again, by the way, i'm doing good about waking up early, thank you- thank you... it's a wonderful thing).... what was i saying before the parenthesis?! oh yes, in my commute to school this morning i saw this (see picture above) going on in the sky and the first thing i thought was "God doesn't wanna color outside the lines today"

i took the picture after thinking about it for a moment. i was careful. i know i shouldn't take pictures while driving... but i will probably never see this again. ever. i have to get back to studying now. good night to you.

a poem by Ricky Flores

I must have known you
We passed each other a thousand times
Never talking yet forever, you, echoing in my memory

I must have known you
Through the fog of time resonating like a beating heart fading in the distance
Never talking yet,


There you are

Shaping everything through the passion of your words
That I never heard
Not once in my lifetime


There they are

Always there

My life written out on a page that I never saw
My life intimately exposed on a page for all to see
Was that life, my own, written on the page as you stood watch over me?
Or did I take yours and made it my own?

I must have known you
How else do I explain the eerie semblance of our lives?
That connection of remembrance of a life that you lived or was that life my own?

In the fog of time we parted and what was left was the page

This is it!

I only need about 4 hours of sleep to function well! Waking up early is a wonderful thing, even when you've stayed up late.

Have you ever gotten an anti-valentine?!

I wasn't even going to mention valentine's. But then the night of the 14th I got a call from a friend. He said I had something waiting for me in my organization's office, so I stopped by the office a few minutes before my Wednesday night class and found this :)

Dancing snowflakes/My feet on the ground

Today I saw the most beautiful snow storm I have ever seen. There were real
snowflakes and they were coming down the sky so very beautifully. It looked
like they were all taking the time to be happy with the wind and dance
around while they distracted me from driving.

It was pretty neat.

Then later I found out I was the worst grade in the first test in one of my
classes. It was a bummer. But I guess I needed that to get myself together.
I've been slacking in that class a lot... well, that and other 2 classes.
Ok, I've only been working hard in the one class I like. The other ones are
just not inspiring at all, but I guess they're not meant to inspire me, but
just make me work. But let me stop right now, before I say anything real
(but not pretty) about those uninspiring classes.... you never know when
those things will come back to you.

I'm getting it together. Sorry World, sorry I attempted to slack in my last
semester in college.

I just need a break. That's all.

figuring out what to do [right] after graduation

....and I mean RIGHT after.

I have to celebrate, but I don't know yet what exactly I'm going to do.
Maybe a little reception... maybe.... I don't know.

I've been surveying friends for suggestions. I should know sometime next
week. Oh, and I have to apply for graduation.

Many long to-do lists. Busy times, but there are so many things that make me
happy that everything else just goes easier.

Walking to class.... in the rain.

It was a beautiful rainy day today.
I didn't slip and fall.
And the rain brought some clarity.
And I'm excited because I'm one of Jenn's bridesmaids.... can't wait to go down to Las Vegas and see my friends getting married!! I love them so much!!

Through the windshield

Through the windshield, originally uploaded by aquarelita.

This was Anna's car. We should have been studying but instead took some time to go eat at the Flying Burrito and go wash her car. It was pretty dirty, but we still should have been studying.

My car needs some washing too.
Maybe I'll wait for some rain. I took a bunch more pointless photos that you can appreciate in my flickr.

Libertad temporal

I feel kinda liberated just after finishing the test I had this morning. This week was so awfully full with things to do and reading and studying. I am so tired.... I am emotionally tired and need some refreshing. I wish I had a refresh button like any internet browser, but I don't. I have to figure something out, fast. Can't do another piercing, because I just don't want anymore. Usually that's my escape when I'm feeling all stressed out like now.

I have a bunch of stuff to do still this week, it's just not class related. I have a few deadlines for tomorrow, but that's just about putting things together.... I'm almost done. Then I have a full load for next week.

Man, it's harsh. We'll see how I manage. At least I get to see beautiful sunsets a lot. Can't say the same thing about sunrises, though. I haven't been obeying my alarm as I usually do... the snooze button should just be destroyed! it's a bad thing for humanity. And I was joking about that, but now it sounds like a brilliant idea.

I went to see Scott yesterday and he showed me the John Mayer photos he got. He had a photographer's pass. His pictures are just amazing!!!!

And today I read this article in the newspaper about an ancient burial they found with a couple of skeletons that were positioned in a way that seemed as if they were lovers and died touching each other. Holding each other as if to overcome death together. It was really neat. I'll scan the article later.

you'd think i'd know better... and i do

but i just don't act on it.

again i'm living one of those weeks that just makes me want to drop one of my majors to just get this all over with and graduate. and it's all my fault, if i hadn't REALLY taken a couple of snow days it would all be just fine. now, i have to deal with the consequences.

web design project, media planning test, creative writing reading, creative writing critique... etc.

and right now i can't even get start on the list for ancient art history. man, that class is horrible. there's only so much ancient art my body can handle... and that limit was reached in art history survey 1.

oh, and today's my mom's birthday!

would you come rescue me....

From all the people with the questions?

I just want a happy life.
and tomorrow is my mami's birthday so i better finish with the happy birthday sign... i also have to read tonight. in JM's words: twice as much, ain't twice as good...
as soon as i finish paying tuition and graduation deals i'm getting my LIBERTAD tattoo.

JM: two things.

and second of all, i found this yahoo piece they did for launch and it cracked me up. he's right about the extra points for playing guitar.

man, i have GOT to move on.

About the John Mayer concert

John Mayer, originally uploaded by aquarelita.

so, last night was so great! even though i fell down on my butt twice cause the UA just gets really dangerous when it snows.

i loved every minute of the concert and the only thing that would have made it better would be talking to the man himself. he's a great guitarist. here's one of the moments when he just went on playing:

I don't trust myself....
