my hair is blue-emerald-green!

I wanted my hair blue for a while, but whenever I told someone I wanted that color they would give me the “you’re crazy” look, so it unmotivated me. Then I found an emerald green on pinterest, fell in love, got my parent’s approval, showed it to my hair stylist, and he worked his magic.

I need to retouch it soon. But I am so happy!

I have blue, green-blue, and purple in my hair. Yay! My guy left my natural root since it was growing, so there’s also my brown hair in the mix. I was scared the green wouldn’t show, but nope, it’s there!

something better than a dance flashmob // plus star wars!

Just wanted to take a quick second to show you this awesome video I found while in Facebook! It’s of a town in Mexico that borders where I live.

The city’s youth orchestra surprised the public in a shopping mall with a flashmob, only that this wasn’t a dance! (I’m tired of those, aren’t you?) In lieu of its soon release (6 days to be precise!) they played the Star Wars theme song. HYPE!!

Click here to see the video in Facebook!

(I tried to embed it but wordpress didn’t let me. Sorry folks. You can still watch it even if you don’t have a Facebook. But I’m pretty sure everyone has now nowadays. Wait, my mom doesn’t have one.. Ok, maybe not everyone! But yeah!)

That video made me so happy! It helps as a distraction for those having a bad day and it is something different for our community that promotes a wonderful thing: MUSIC! And let’s not forget, Star Wars!! (Sorry, I’m just so excited with all of the promotions for this movie).

Enjoy!

austin, san marcos, a gig, and food.

hiya friends! how’ve you been? i hope well :) this past monday boyfriend, his band, and i went to austin because they had a gig. i really like that city. it’s so youthful, has delightful architecture, and the people i’ve talked to have been so nice. oh, and its motto is “keep austin weird” which is..interesting, haha.

here are some photos from our trip, accompanied with a few transitions like those in Frasier. well maybe not as clever, but i tried! (please tell me you understand that reference?! brownie points if you do!)

WHEN IN AN IRISH PUB…ORDER WATER AND WINGS?

IMG_9579IMG_9577

the boys love a good beer, but this time we didn’t order any; just three orders of wings and two potato soups. THEY WERE SO GOOD! we couldn’t finish all of them though. too many.

DIRTY DOG BAR

it’s the second time the boys play here. as always, it was a good show.

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS

I still ask myself why I didn’t apply for this university.. it looks challenging, yet amazing.

COME HUNGRY AND UNHINGE YOUR JAW

after the show we somehow got hungry again and boys decided to give this restaurant, Big Bite, a try. they serve these big sandwiches with multiple things in them. david and i shared one that had chicken strips, french fries, and mozzarella sticks, all drenched in buffalo sauce and ranch. yes, that sounds, and is, extremely fatty, but that combination was tasty! total college food.

we slept over at our friend’s apartment in a little town – that by the way is so cute! – about 30 minutes from the capital. (oh, and she owns a chinchilla named mango! how cool is that?) we ventured downtown, got smoothie king, shopped in a store full of cool knickknacks, and ate tacos. (gosh, we sure do eat a lot..)


does my writing transpire the excitement i felt? pardon my thoughts being out of order and my constant use of exclamation marks and sophomoric adjectives. these were two fun days!

what have you been up to friends? :) boyfriend and i are up to our neck in finals. it’s not fun. if you, too, are in finals, we understand your pain and are here cheering for ya! be safe, be well, have a little fun! and have a very good day.

mom took my canon to mexico city.

and these are the pictures she came back with:
Mom took my Canon 12Mom took my Canon 3 Mom took my Canon 2Mom took my Canon 7 Mom took my Canon 5 Mom took my Canon 1 Mom took my Canon 11 Mom took my Canon 6 Mom took my Canon Mom took my Canon 8 Mom took my Canon 9 Mom took my Canon 10 Mom took my Canon 4

i have to give her props, taking pictures with a film camera is a little challenging at times. some are blurry, but i like em though. reminds me of how those old mexican movies looked. and it reminds me of my abuelo cuz he would always be watching them every time i would visit him. good memories. and good pictures, mother.

p.s: i got this little canon point-and-shoot, 35mm camera because i wanted something small to capture moments with. this is the first film i develop from it. i love it already.

 

camera: canon sure shot telemax // film: fujifilm superia x-tra 400ISO

I go to my window and what do I see? These babies growing taller and taller and their babies blooming from the soil! Ah, you don’t know how happy this makes me! I have always wanted to plant veggies.

In the first pot we have snap peas, and in the rest cilantro. I’m gonna have to transplant all of the cilantro soon.

When spring comes, I’ll be sure to start a garden outdoors. :) Just wanted to do a quick update from my last post, where Napo and I went outside to admire their growth.

Have a very nice Friday!
