My boyfriend is a graphic arts guy.  This was my Christmas gift from him. 
"A Person Like You…..A person like you only comes once in a lifetime.  Someone who is kind and sincere. A person who loves to laugh and at make others laugh even at their own expense.  A person like you is a rare breed, like a red diamond; so beautiful to look at, a desire of both men and women, and yet very hard to obtain.  A person like you who is smart beyond their years.  A person who keeps people wondering what is next but only you know the plan.
A person like you who is honest and tells the truth, even if it might hurt others, but you do it out of love and expect it in return.  A person who wears their heart on their sleeve, who isn’t afraid to show those she loves how she truly feels.  A person who is brave and isn’t afraid to show the world who she truly is.  A person without judgement who loves unconditionally without bias or remorse.  A person who will sacrifice themselves for others happiness at the cost of your own feelings.  You might not feel like doing certain things at times, but you’ll do them out of your good well nature. 
A person who seeks understanding in a world so convoluted at times.  A person who isn’t quick to jump to conclusions without asking the right questions. 
This is the person who I see when I see you.  This is the person I’m  proud to have in my life.  This is a person who I wouldn’t want to lose in my life.  This is a person who makes others around them better people.  This is the person one day I hope to become.  This is the person I’ve come to love and care for.  This is the person who I want to hold on to in life.  This is the person who steals the hearts of those around them.  This is the person who the world needs the most…This person is you. “

This boy, I tell ya…..I think I’ll keep him  :-D

Wow, it’s been a while…

I doubt anyone even reads my little blog anymore, but I feel like I have to share what’s been going on recently… and it has been quite the tale…

So last spring, I took a rowing boot camp for shits and giggles.  I friend of mine from college was on the team, and I figured what the hell. As you may not know, I hate organized sports.  I’ve never been a sporty person…ever….Well go figure, I actually fell in love with it.  Me. Sports. Wtf? I finished boot camp, tried out for the novice team, AND I FUCKING MADE IT!!!  I’ve never been so proud of myself.  Over the past 9 months, I’ve worked my ass off, raced in 3 regattas, and lost almost 40 lbs.  My body, mind, and soul have completely changed for the better.  I can honestly say, I love who I am, and have so much hope for the future.  

On top of that, after a string of shitty one night stands, failed relationships and incredibly bad choices,  I have an amazing new boyfriend.  Guillermo and I actually met while I was in college.  We knew each other in passing through a mutual friend, and I always thought he was a great guy.  When he finally got FB, we reconnected, hung out a few times, and found out how much we have in common.  It was like I’ve known him my whole life.  After having primarily dating women, I always told myself that if I was going to start seeing a guy, he had to be the right kind of guy.  He had to be special…and he certainly is. He’s a true gentleman.  Hilarious, charming, and down to earth.  I really admire how dedicated he is to his family and friends. He’s honest, and has a great head on his shoulders.   :-)  It’s been about 5 months now, and I really couldn’t be happier.  I’m cautious, but so excited to see where this leads. 

To really put icing on the cake, one of my best friends moved in with me a couple months ago. We’re having a blast, and she’s helping me train my dog, which is a huge plus.

So all in all, life is actually pretty awesome right now. I never thought I’d get to this point.  I’m happy and healthy; what more could a girl ask for?  :-D

In the beginning, while people pillaged the world through imperialism, colonialism, slavery, genocide, Manifest Destiny, occupation and subjugation of people of color. They take what they want for capital gain. These practices continue to this day.

Next,…

Actual conversation with me and the roomies

  • Me- So, if you fold a fajita in half, does it become a taco?
  • Alex- No, I think that's more like a chalupa.
  • Kel- Isn't a chalupa like a burrito?
  • Me- No, it's more like a chimichanga.
  • Alex- Wait, then what's an enchilada?
  • Kel and I- *blank stares*
  • Alex- Is this conversation really happening?
