And it was amazing!
Go watch it!
I sometimes feel I’m not doing much with my summer. Or, since it’s almost over, that I didn’t do much with it. I see some friends abroad helping others; I see people exploring the U.S. by car; I see some classmates taking many summer classes to graduate earlier; I see others reading book after book after book while I’m stuck in the same one. And, well, as for me I am just here at home most of the time.
But today it made me reconsider.
Even though I feel did not do as much as others this summer, I had fun. And if I think about it I did do several things. I worked as a research assistant in my university, I traveled with my family, I helped my mom and my aunt start their local business, I’m about to finish that one book I’ve been wanting to read, and I spent the beginning of summer with my grandfather, among other things.
One thing that my boyfriend and I finally got to doing, that I love we took advantage of this summer, was swimming in his pool many times. We bought an underwater camera a few days ago and we went crazy with it (cuz it was just so cool to throw a gadget in the water and it be ok – a strange feeling and a little scary too!). Being there with him, swimming, playing, capturing underwater shots, made me think about how much I really liked this summer. (And how much I love spending time with him.) So those “negative” thoughts just went away. (Thank you, David.) I did the things I had the chance to, and even if I could’ve done more, I am happy with the stuff I did.
some pictures from our camera:
I still need to learn how to swim.. maybe next summer! :D
p.s: boyfriend has the coolest star wars comics swim trunks
* big as in tom hanks BIG, the 1988 film, carnival scene where he makes the wish to zoltar. (haven’t seen the movie? what?! you must!)
we’ve been saying for years that the next time the carnival comes, we’ll go and get a corndog. that has not happened until it finally did last week :D! no corndog though. i didn’t crave it at the moment. i regret it now :(
we only got on two rides cuz the lines were too long and david and i don’t have patience for that. also we were super hungry and just wanted to eat and not throw up in a ride, haha.
foot-long hot dogs ended up being our dinner:
we passed by a stand that had birds and bunnies (as prices, we supposed) (i know, it’s horrible, don’t even get me started cuz i’ll cry of anger). we loved that little white bunny, though. he looked like he had no worries in the world. happy fella! sorry we couldn’t rescue you, boy :( …
little things i saw i wanted to take home:
I LOVE merry-go-rounds! not riding them, but looking at them. their details, and colors, and lights. everything!
we decided to go home to sleep. but on our way, we started talking, woke up a little more, then passed by walmart and i got the urge to go purchase things i swore i needed haha. it ended up being a star wars lego run as both of us got one.
mine: a mini millennium falcon!
david: thank you for waiting for me while i took pictures and for buying me lemonade. i love you. and sorry i dropped your stormtrooper’s helmet under a stranger’s car. my bad :( you’re a good sport!
some friends and i got together the other weekend to celebrate a friend’s 21st birthday.
he then invited us on a weekend road trip to san antonio to continue the celebration. and i must say, it was fun
over there, we met up with friends who have moved to other cities for college. it was nice seeing them cuz once the semester actually starts *boom* everyone disappears. but i don’t blame them. college is tough.
games, food, friends, drinks: one good night :)
i love my friends
the next day we went to a cool little lego store called bricks and minifigs. at the entrance they had these build-your-own stations where you could purchase whatever it was you created.
just picture all of us 20-some-year-olds building little mini figures and robots haha sorry, little kids, these are our legos now!
one millennium falcon to go please!
at night, while the grown ups went out, my friend lino decided to take his girlfriend emma and i for a burger at in-n-out. thanks, linosaurio!
it was good! and i would eat it again. i just think people make it a bigger hype than what is it (sorry, america)
compared to this one, whataburger is my still my favorite hands down. but in-n-out makes a better burger model for a picture. just look at all that cheese, ahh!
on the road back home, joe, didi, and i sang our lungs out to classic luis miguel songs. the most perfect way to end the weekend <3 (don’t judge, “[we] just have a lot of feelings!”)
napoleon got a little yoda picture for his cage! he’s now one of the cool guys with posters on his wall. so rebellious. all he needs now is a pink floyd one!
don’t worry, star wars fans, i don’t think he’ll eat the picture. he’s a pretty calm piggy; doesn’t even chew on toys.
^ admiring his poster. i guess every boy wants to be jedi! ^
