So my sister's been hounding me to read this book. So much so that she forced me to take her copy home and read it.
Today i can proudly stand and say, "IM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!"
"It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled. Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of red states and blue states.
We are, and always will be, the United States of America."
i'm so happy that i haven't stopped smiling since the news of our elected President.
life's been hectic what with school and working everyday.
i was making this for my old xanga site. wow, oooold school.
this was a mixture of different flowers. i looove loove loove this one.
another grunge effect.
i haven't blended in a while.
just because i love this boy. <3
my sister wanted me to do a picture of her.
so i did. it's of her and our friend christina.
i'm very proud of that quote i wrote.
it's AWESOME. lol.
i used a picture of my friends adorable daughter.
so, i've finally got my groove back into my graphics. oh how i've missed it. i'm just trying to get familiar with all the filters, tools, etc. in my photoshop again. slowly i'm remembering. =)
so not many people read my blog but i still write and post pictures because i love to. i finally made a video of myself talking or shall i say talking bubbles on youtube. its weird to see my face on youtube...but yet it feels awesome. i wish i had gave some more people shoutouts because i watch soo many people on youtube. lol.

GO TROJANS. haha. anyways, my beautiful friend thea grad from usc last week and today was her grad party. the food was yummy with a sushi, saimin, etc stations. the spicy tuna rolls were spicy and oh-so-good. =) what else but pictures.
it was that time of year where people are confirmed, baptised, and given their first communion. but, our choir sings for the 6pm mass on sundays so we sang at the confirmation ceremony. the plan was for the whole choir to wear red and we all did and it looked fabulous. our voices were strong and the spirits were high. here are pictures from it.
this year i opted to do karaoke for my birthday because im an obessed karaoke-er. lol. wasn't able to have the party on my actual bday because it was a sunday so we had it the following thursday. i had a blast. i got drunk but not drunk drunk where i acted up a fool. im too old to get "fucked up" on my bday. =p i got drunk just enough. matt kept me in control...he would be like, "babe, have some soda and here eat this sandwich" and i would sneak some sips of my bottle of wine that i got as a gift when he wasn't looking. i had fun and although matt wasnt able to pull off a surprise it was still awesome that he organized it. i love him so much. enjoy the pictures.
