Day 10: Guilty Pleasure…

Hey World,

This one is a bit easy for me. Guilty Pleasures are mostly based around TV. One that I will brush off my chest is “Son’s of Anarchy.” I know, I know but I loved it. I seriously teared up on the last two seasons. The last was so so sad and I loved the whole thing. It was so great! Its a guilty pleasure because it was so bad it was good. I mean it. The subject matter and what they did was so, so, so, so,so, so bad, gruesome, inappropriate, and down right illegal. Totally feel guilty after watching each episode.(Yeah, I have the series in DVD too. Couldn’t help it.)

Anyways, another guilty pleasure is Korean Dramas. I am obsessed. I know they are weird and in another language (I read the subtitles) but seriously I’m obsessed! I mean I know the actors and I have my celebrity crush etc. Total fan girl. I laugh, cry, get angry and squeal each drama I tackle. I just love it! My sisters says it’s a problem. I love them. So, this is how my love for Dramas came to be. I have always loved manga. One day, I stumbled upon an amazing drama called, “Hana Yori Dango,” it was amazing and I was obsessed with it. I love it. So I was looking to see if they had an anime for it and as I search I found not only the anime for it but the drama. Some blog called it live action some called it drama. It was a Japanese drama (drama is really a soap opera). Anyways, I gave it a go and I have never looked back. I started with Japan then I saw some Taiwanese and then Korean dramas came to be my all time favorite. I feel they make better dramas. Anyways, now I see them all the time.

Those are two of my guilty pleasures! What are yours?

Day 9: Dream Job

Hey world,

So I totally fail at this day to day challenge. Life happens and …yeah. Anyways, I will do all 30 days just maybe not consistently.  Okay let us begin. Dream job

I think my dream job would be several things. I would want a job I can travel for free all over the world. I once saw this show where Guy Ferrari and his son travel through Europe eating awesome food and seeing all the sights. that would be my dream job. If I wasn’t such a chicken I would love to do a adventure tv persona. Like showing you all the cool things you  can do all over the world. Also, on that note if I wasn’t such a shy person I would be a world news reporter. I would love to be in the mist of all the action reporting. Also, another dream job would be to be a teacher that taught in other countries. Like teach in Africa, South America, South Korea, etc. This I hope to accomplish. Basically I just want to travel! So yeah, what is your dream job?

Day 7: Toys, Toys, Toys

My favorite childhood toy?

ivlbtf

Pig Rabbit love

Hey World,

First and foremost,  I wanted to let you know that I will only be posting on this challenge Monday – Friday. So a total of 5 days. That is why you haven’t seen any post. I posted 6 days in a row and life was getting in the way. I actually am the busiest on the weekends because I work  all weekend and hang out with my fam after.

So the question for today is childhood toy. Like all my prompts this one is hard because I didn’t have one. I have always remembered a  life with my two other sisters. My earliest memories are with my sisters in our little apartment with my parents in a low-income side of town in LA. That being said, we all shared and pass down our toys. My parents always provided the necessities but we where by far the riches or even middle class. We were raised in a strict home that almost rivaled the military. My dad was a military guy. We were taught at a young age not to ask for anything and when it they said “no” that was the end of it. One of my earliest memories was my parents telling us in the car before going to the store was “not to touch anything, don’t leave their side, don’t talk to strangers and to not to ask for anything.” If we did so help us god we where going to be punished. So as good little girls we followed the rules. They usually got  us some type of snack usually chips ( I know not healthy). My parents were not big sweet eaters so chips was always it. I think that is why we all snack so much and usually don’t eat sweets. Also, probably why we don’t have cavities.

Back to the toy situation. I remember always making stuff for my few dolls out of papers and leftover things. Bottle caps, paper, empty food containers (cereal box, cans, etc) where my materials; scissors and crayons my tools and my mind to create. I didn’t ever think about how I was poor or that other kids had more. I was happy in my own little world.

so I can’t really tell you I had a favorite toy but I can tell you I was happy with what I had. I was a little girl who loved her dolls and stuff animals and always loved hearing stories. Now i do have a favorite stuff animal. It’s a pig rabbit. It’s a cute white rabbit with a pig nose. So CUTE! I love seeing Korean dramas and one of them had that stuff animal. It came all the way from Asia and we have gone on many adventures. LOL! So what about you. Any favorite toy?

Hey World,

So if you haven’t notice. I’m a Libra. I am sadly really like my zodiac sign. Like scary to the T like my sign. Crazy right. I’m also an introvert. A little proper. Also, shy. So theirs not really much I can say about this because it’s on point. Every part of it. Wait, there is one bit i will say. The whole marry an Aries be friends with a Gemini blah, blah, blah stuff. I don’t go around asking people their birthdays and looking up their zodiac signs and stuff. That is a waste of time and down right silly. I really don’t look into these things. I sort of was raised to believe all these things where witch craft. Now as an adult I may not believe that. However, I still don’t pay much attention to it. People are all different. We all change as we grow and mature. We are who we are. period. So, what about you guys. Have you looked up your sign? Are you surprise with the results?

Ta-ta,

Day 5: Food…yum

text

Hey World,

I feel like every topic is so hard for me to write about because I am so picky or don’t have just one. This one is hard because food is my kryptonite. I love cooking and baking and I sure like eating it. I love discovering new foods and I have a shelf full of cookbooks. So, comfort food…I can’t pick one. Goodness after those few sentences I feel I should go to the gym. LOL!

To begin, I love when my mom cooks. She has great taste in food. She can make great food and it always taste amazing. Now her baking is terrible. Please take away anything that gets her near an oven. She is a typical Salvadorian mom but she is adventures and not afraid to ask. She likes something you make she will hunt you down for the recipe. Actually, she will invite you to her home and buy all the ingredients and ask you to teach her how to make it. She will do it a few times, twink it to her liking (which usually ends up better) and wham she has a new dish! My favorites are her PUPUSAS. Man those things are amazing and no one has made them as good as her. Also, her Guisado is do die for. Let us not forget her Prijoles Charros. My mouth is salivating. These are one of my comfort food because it brings back good memories. Mom would always have diner ready after a long day at school. Also, everyone loved her cooking and I was so proud to have a mom that cooking was amazing.

Second, I really love Thai, Chinese, Southern, and Italian food. I discovered Thai when a good friend took me to a Thai place for my birthday. It changed my life and the life of my sisters. Why my sisters. They literally go once a week to our favorite Thai restaurant. They know them by name and my sisters know them by name. I on the other hand haven’t had Thai food in like 5 month. My stomach is a bit sensitive. Chinese is good but only when I crave it. Southern is something I want to learn how to make because it’s so good all the time. Now Italian would be an honor to learn how to cook really good. It is so complex at points but then so simple. I love it. I wish I could cook all of it. It all brings some type of comfort or memory.

Lastly, baking is a great love of mine. I may not stuff myself with it. I’m more of a savory eater then a sweet tooth. However, I love creating bake goods. Like I stated before my mom can’t bake to save her life. She knew this and because of it. We never had dessert. So all of us learn not to eat dessert or crave sweets for that matter.Spicy was are thing. So, I took it upon myself to learn to bake so that we would have some kind of dessert. Also, so that my future kids would know the pleasure of a sweet dessert.

So there are a lot of foods I find comfort but I find my greatest comfort and joy when I share my creations (food I’ve cooked or baked) with people. Seeing their face filled with I don’t know, with… yum.

So have you got a favorite comfort food?

Day 4: Religion?

Hey World,

Day four is here asking for my views on religion. So, I really don’t like religion. It’s a word that so many people have put in a little box and anything that doesn’t belong is not “in.” Many people have lived, died, killed, loved, destroyed, built, and so on and so forth for this word. However, in the end of the day it’s just a word society created to put a name to an act. A cookie cutter word. Hence, I do believe in God. Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I love them. It’s not religion or a set of specific rules, it’s a relationship. Jesus didn’t come and do all he did and teach all he did for us to not have a relationship with us. People take the relationship part from Jesus and replace it with religion. So yeah, once again, “Jesus is a relationship not a religion.”

Day 3: Pet Peeves

Hey World,

Day three is here and my prompt is m top 5 pet peeves. My sisters think this is funny because they say, everything makes me mad or tics me off. But there are a few that will put my nears on edge ASAP. So, here we go.

  1. Crunching/chewing on ice. Just thinking about it make me shiver. AHH! I hate that sound and it really gets me uncomfortable.
  2. Being ignored or left out. When  was little I was bullied by the “popular girls” I would notice kids not talking to me or avoiding me. I felt alone. Like I was on the outside looking through a window. I try to always involve people in conversation or activities and never leave people out because, I don’t want them to feel that way.
  3. Farting or burping in public. this makes me so mad when my siblings do this around the house. i tell them go to your room or the restroom. But in the family room when we are hanging out or in public. It’s so rude and disgusting.
  4. Nosy people: I don;t tell people much about me. You get snip tips of me and you know what I want you to know. So when people hover or ask to many questions it gets me so mad I get ugly sometimes.
  5. Misbehaving kids and the parents that do nothing (or think its cute)…enough said. You know, you see them at the supermarket and at the mall. GRRR!

So yeah those are some of my top pet peeves. What are yours?

Day 2: 10 Years later

Hey World,

Hope everyone is doing well. So, day two came and the writing prompt is, “where I’d like to be in 10 years.” this question is a hard one for me. I’m currently 26 years old and in ten years…I’ll be 36. Yikes!

Okay, so this is what I basically would like to be. I would like to be economically secured. I would like to have a home, family, and a career. Also, I would like leader in my community and in my church.

First, economically secured, goes hand in hand with my career. I would like to have graduated college and be what I studied for. A teacher. I want to have a class full of second graders. I want to help them be the best 2nd graders in the state. I want them to love learning and love reading. I also want to be secured in my income. I hate working paycheck to paycheck. I want to be wise with my money. Have a house, cars that are paid off and all the things I need for my home and family. Also, I want to do a lot of things.

Second, I would love to be happily married with the man God has for me. Also, I would love to be a mom. I want to have that feeling of having my baby grow inside. I want to see them grow. I want it all. Okay, now I’m getting sappy.

Third, I want to be a part of my community. Try to make our town a better place and fight for what its citizens needs. I also would like to be involved in my kids (classroom babies) life. I want to know their lives and their parents. i want to go see them at their games. Also, I want them to know I would be their for them if they needed help. In addition, I would like to be a vital part in my church. I don’t care to be a leader like, the pastor’s wife or the pastor of X but, I want to help in what ever role God wants me in.

So yeah, theirs a lot more but these are the top thing I really want to be doing in 10 years. what about you guys?
