I was walking around campus when I hear a bird screeching horribly. I looked around and saw that two black birds were attacking this little red thing with all of their might, and slamming it against the floor. At first I thought it was a leaf they were playing with since they were ganging up on it like nothing.
I’m a huge animal lover, so I had to stop and scare the black birds away from him (and it took a bit to do so) who were on top of this little red bird. I was careful to approach him. He was so scared. I know birds carry diseases and all of that. I didn’t care. This bird was in shock and in pain with his little skull exposed. I was careful. He let me carry him and I took him to david who had just gotten out of class so he would see him. Google confirmed that this beautiful being was a Cardinal.
I didn’t know what to do or who to call. So, I called my mom. Then my vet, and took him to her. They are gonna take care of him and see if they can save him and then set him free. I would keep him, of course, but it is illegal to keep Cardinals and he’s used to being free, so that wasn’t an option.
Later that day I called the vet and her staff told me that, unfortunately, he had passed away. David, I, my mother, grandmother, and the friends we told this story to were really sad. I kinda wanted to cry. They couldn’t believe Roger– as we named him– had let me carry him. Neither could I, really. I am glad I met this little buddy even if it was for a little bit.
I’m sharing this story because even if we have a super busy schedule, we should still stop and help others. Even if that other is a little red bird. Like everyone, I do have papers due and I was late to work but I still took this little guy in to get the help he needed. People walked by him and didn’t stop. I can’t imagine what would’ve happened to him. So friends, look around, be attentive, and lend a helping hand. There’s no excuse.
I don’t really like Valentine’s Day. I don’t have anything against it; it’s just not my thing or David’s, so we just don’t celebrate it. Yesterday consisted of being outside his garage, talking in the moonlight, with frequent visits of his neighbor’s dog, drinking sprite, taking pictures, a lot of hugging and when-we-get-married talk. I loved it. I love him. Possibly my favorite Valentine’s Day so far. How was yours?
This year has been pretty good so far. Can’t wait to see what else it has in store.
2015 was good to me too. I lost people, I met people. I probably cried more times than I laughed, if I must be honest. But I treasure it. It taught me a lot of things, especially to not stress over the little things and that everything happens for a reason. Two very important things to remember in this life.
Anyway, friends. I hope you have a very good Monday night. Cherish every moment you can!!
Not very long ago I go into gardening. It is hobby many of my close family members enjoy. The first herb I planted back in October was cilantro. It is now huge and beautiful. I now have that, a beautiful tomato plant, two red bell pepper plants, and a white onion. :)
My boyfriend got interested in plants too so I helped him plant some cilantro seeds. We planted them in Novemeber but they sadly never bloomed.
Last week he decided to dump the dirty from the pot I lent him, since he was convinced his cilantro never grew.
BUT, when he was about to reach the pot, he saw that two cilantro plants had risen from the ground!!
I’m so proud of you boyfriend! Happy to see you happy. :)
Oh nature, you are amazing. Maybe a little lazy, haha. But amazing nonetheless!
A lot of people don’t like tattoos. My parents are included among those people. They don’t have anything against people who have them; they don’t look at them differently; they just don’t like tattoos. And that’s fine. I, on the other hand, went to school with people who were fond of them. Thus, I grew an appreciation toward them, regardless of all the negative things circulating the world of tattoos. I’m not gonna explain what tattoos mean to me. Everyone has their own definition and it is theirs to keep. Same thing with the meaning behind tattoos. Some people don’t even have meanings for their tattoos; just reasons. I am not advocating or pushing for anyone to get them either. It is your body. What I am gonna say is: if you are thinking about getting one, please do be cautious and think about it long and hard. Don’t be impulsive. Research.
I got two:
I usually don’t put watermarks in my pictures, but people tend to steal tattoo photos quite often, so.
It hurt a little. Not much. I am so happy with the results.
the other day boyfriend picked me up from school and we went to a park that is between both our homes. he took some lego to take pictures; you know, his hobby. and they turned out really good. I am so proud of him and am happy that he has a loyal community that supports him. he deserves it.
we got to the park and found a small opening between trees and bushes and ventured in. it was a whole other section of the park. a quiet one far from people. one where we could have a picnic an afternoon, or bring a telescope and a blanket and look at the stars and the moon at night and not be bothered.
we might actually do that someday :) for now, he took pictures and I laid down on the fresh-cut grass and danced and explored. it was like we were not even in our town anymore.
hello friends! october is here!! so happy! that means orange leaves, cinnamon scents, my mother’s birthday, halloween, and windy days to come! well, in our town it is still pretty hot. like, if-you’re-outside-you-sweat hot. (I cannot wait for 70º weather to come!) but still, I am happy it is october and that my favorite season is here :)

if you liked this post you can see my complete september photo challenge here :)
you know that feeling where something, anything happens and it just ruins your mood completely and it changes it to something you do not want?
that feeling where all you wanna do is crawl into bed and go to sleep?
right now I wanna do just that; go to my bed, cuddle with my boyfriend, maybe have a comfort food or watch The Office, and go to sleep. hide away from the world by covering myself with my yellow comforter, and try to forget feeling like this. maybe even cry out of anger.
ugh. I feel so little.
And not in the child-like way. i mean the there-are-people-who-are-better-and-bigger-than-you sad way.
I even feel embarrassed. And for a prideful person like myself, embarrassment is not something I can easily deal with. Should I try to suck it up ?
I’m writing this as a form to vent and in hopes that putting it out there will make feel not like this. Although I’m not sure if it is working or making me more self conscious. Oh well, it’s out there.
I can’t believe we’re already gonna go into october! like what, halloween already?! :O (I’m kind of excited for that holiday, to be honest!) but still, woah.. anyway, this is week five of my photo challenge :) hope you like it!
DAY 21 – FACELESS SELF PORTRAIT
DAY 22 – SOMETHING GREEN
DAY 23 – PATTERNS
DAY 24 – PET
DAY 25 – TECHNOLOGY
the challenge I got the idea from here. previous photo challenges for this month here.
i told myself i was gonna post these photos every five days to have enough for the whole 30 days in september. but i’ve been bad about it :( school has been getting tougher and tougher. this week, for example, i have tests and reports almost daily. it’s horrible, but i’m surviving! i miss writing for my little blog though. so today i took a little time to bring you something i was supposed to post saturday. (oops). not that i am forced or anything, but i love doing so, and writing this + reading your blog posts makes me happy and gives a break from writing reports and memorizing things i’ll probably forget next week, sadly. so, without further ado, the second week of my september photo challenge! :)
DAY 6 – AFTER DARK
DAY 7 – SOMEONE THAT INSPIRES YOU
DAY 8 – ROUTINE
DAY 9 – SOMEONE YOU LOVE
DAY 10 – CHILDHOOD MEMORY
photo challenge i’m following here (although i changed most of it to make it my own). pictures from my boyfriend’s iphone and my white diana mini.
