Day 14: Memories

 

memoriesHey World,

Memories, something you wish never to remember and some you wish you could go back in time to relive. I replay every memory in my head. The good, the bad, and the funny. So, going back, today’s question is,”What is your earliest memory?”

Gosh, this one is a bit hard because my earliest memory I’m not sure which one it is. They are a bit jumbled up. Not sure how old I was but here it goes. Let’s call it going to pre-school. So this memory takes place in Los Angeles, California. That is where i lived from age 1-8 before I moved to Arkansas (FYI I was born in Texas but according to my mom and dad they hated it there and moved to LA when I was 10 months).  So at I probably was like 4 or 5 and we lived in these duplex apartments. It was my mom and dad my two little sisters and me. My sisters where like 1 and 2. I remember the brown apartment their where several similar duplex next to ours. Their was a gate and our apartment was the one facing the street. This part is where I get a whole bit of memories that I can’t tell happen before or after this pre-K memory. I remember my mom and dad decorating the window facing the street with lights and a little hanging sign that probably said Merry Christmas or happy new years. Not sure if it was in Spanish or English. I get clips of one of our birthday parties and I am running around playing with the kids in a flowery dress. I also remember a Christmas where my sisters and I all had matching red dresses and my mom is taking picture of us. I also remember my mom and dad waking me up and taking me to the living room, with the rest of my family, to wait out the earthquake; that I apparently was sleeping through. I remember my dad taking a picture with his mechanic diploma in a yellow crew neck pull over. Anyways, back to the Pre-K memory.

My dad was the one that took me to sign up. I remember getting this pretty pink little mermaid backpack. I loved it I keep on holding on to it and wearing it. my dad took me by the hand and we walked to the pre-k. it was around the block. It use to be a church that got converted to a pre-school. It looked like a typical church. we walked a couple of blocks and we crossed the street. I don’t think I knew why we where taking a walk but I was happy and clueless. When we go to the little school their were already parents their waiting in line. I was (and still am) a shy did and when I saw a few kids playing I stuck close to my dad. Then I saw this little boy who looked like his face was burned up (later, way later I found out he had harlequin ichthyosis). I got scared of his looks and hid behind my dad. My dad looked down and asked me if I was scared. I said no but still hid behind him. Yeah, I was scared. Then it was our turn and the lady at little desk inside the school asked my dad a few things. I really don’t know what all went on but, I remember looking around. My dad took my backpack and I remember he put it on the desk and wrote my take across the top in big caps my name. Then he gave it back to me. So, that is one of the most complete earliest memories I have.

I remember a few clips of me being in the school. However, I get them confused with other memories that have me living in a white apartment building. I can’t really place my clips of memories in time order. So, what is your earliest memories? Think back you may be surprised.

Day 13: Oh, the places you will go

Hey World,

seuss

Here I am again trying to finish this. So, today’s question is, “Somewhere you’d like to move or visit.” Okay, so their are a lot of places i would love to visit but, if I had to narrow it down to one or two place I would pick South Korea and Italy. Of all the places you are probably wondering why two countries that don’t speak my native English or Spanish.

So, let me start with South Korea. Two words, Korean Dramas. I am obsessed with them and watch them …A LOT! If you haven’t seen the title of one of my pages you should look up. Self titled: Drama Crazy. There I have almost all the dramas I have watched. I love the story lines and seeing their cultural difference show. I know not everyone is like beautiful and they exaggerate a bit. However, i want to go to the place they film and eat the food they love so much. I want to go to karaoke and just experience the culture and country. If I could live their for a few year…I mean that would be a dream. Then I wouldn’t have to read the subtitles or wait for some kind soul to translate the drama for me.

Second, Italy. Why you may ask? Yeah, the food. I want to learn how to cook real Italian food. All of it. I want to learn the language and learn about the culture. I mean Italy has so much history. I want to soak it all up. I think the country is so beautiful and the language is beautiful. I love Italian food. My secret dream would be to travel through Italy working at restaurants, Bed and Breakfast, little mom and pop restaurants learning how to make all the delicious food. Did I mention I love Italian food? It doesn’t help that one of my favorite chick flick movies is, “Under the Tuscan Sky.” So Hollywood has influence my choice…and the Olive Garden.

So Yeah, If I had to narrow it down hands down it would be South Korea and Italy. Bucket List it! I sure have and you know what world, I will definitely go one day! What is your dream place?

Day 12: A day in the life

Hey World,

Wow, it has been a minute. Well, I went from having to much time and no money to having no time and a bit more money. However, I haven’t forgotten about my 30 day challenge. It’s been bugging me but, here I am picking it up again. Can’t promise it will be consecutive and consistent. So today’s challenge is, “Bullet your whole day.”

Gosh, this is a boring one because, I totally have a boring life. Oh, well here we go.

  • 8-9 am: Wake up (depending on my work schedule) Usually at 9 am. I usually have about an hour to get ready (shower, brush teeth, get dress, eat)
  • 10am: drive about 20-30 min to my job a few town away
  • 10:30am:  work
  • 2pm: lunch (1hr)
  • 3pm: back to work
  • 8pm: off work start drive home
  • 8:30pm home: here I usually eat, do what i need to do that day (pay bills, prepare  for next day, clean clothes etc) and hang out with the fam.
  • 10pm: in my room reading or catching up on TV shows or browsing the web
  • 11 or 12pm: I usually go to sleep.

Told you I have a boring life. This coming year I want to get in the habit of getting up earlier and going to work out. At my work they are doing the biggest loser challenge and I want to win! So, I am excited about it. So, I hope 2017 is a bit less boring. What’s your day like?

Ta-ta,
