It’s amazing how ideas can take a hold of you and all of a sudden it is all you think about. It’s like having a serious crush and you can’t wait to make it come to life so that you can marry it or whatever. There’s been so many times I want to write about so many things, but when I stare at the computer screen, my mind goes blank. It’s really frustrating because I know what I want to say but the words escape me somehow. If I succeed though, it may overwhelm you guys. I stumbled upon a blog challenge that’s going on this month on Alyssa Goes Bang. So today I decided to go ahead and throw it all together in hopes to at least share a bit of what’s on my mind before I chicken out again and crawl back into my cave of unwritten posts.
The Book Review
I’ve been meaning to write a book review for The Betches book, but I haven’t gotten around to it. I must say I’m rusty in writing book reviews because I don’t know if I should keep it short, or do it super long like I did my last book review. The struggle!
The Gmail Tutorial
A year ago, I told my girl Kelly (from Six One Six) that I was going to do a tutorial on how to organize your Gmail. I suck at that because I get freaked out of having to take screenshots and take good step by step photos and then write it out, so then I squash it in my head. Bleh.
Online Dating Sucks
I’m burned out from dating. Tinder is nothing but a disappointment. This guy I liked ghosted me over the weekend and didn’t take me to that fancy shmancy restaurant. He really disappeared and deleted me from Tinder and FB. Jerk. He was probably married or got back with his boo thang, whatevs. I didn’t want to write a post on that because it’s always the same BS.
Though I will say I recently met someone who may help me get my car fixed for cheap because the body shop I took it to, wants to charge me an arm and a leg. Do I look rich to them or something? The insurance didn’t pay for it and I’m contemplating on getting a lawyer involved to make them change their mind and pay me! That lady who hit me was at fault, this is bananas that things are where they are.
Idea to Move to Miami, Florida
There’s a few reasons I want this move to happen:
I want to be closer to PR so that I can visit my biological dad. He still lives there and lately is having a hard time health wise, so I need to be able to book a flight that won’t cost me a ridiculous amount of money and I can be back by Monday.
Let’s be honest, Dallas is great but I need to desperately get out of my comfort zone. I am over all these little neighborhoods and everyone I used to hang out with already moved away from Dallas, so now it’s my turn. For some reason, a lot of my friends who moved away found their new boo’s and I need to find mine, it’s driving me crazy (7 years single will do that, maybe I have the 7 year itch?).
I don’t have anything holding me back here in Dallas (job wise). I’m not passionate about what I do day to day and my soul cries (silently) every second I’m there.
I want to be around diverse cultures and be around my Puerto Rican people. Something about hanging out with them just brings me joy and laughter and the food? Don’t mention it.
New Blog Design
It’s not a blog post, but I’m thinking of revamping my blog especially since my birthday and blog’s 2nd birthday is coming up. We shall see.
Take More Self Portraits
I see a few bloggers take a lot of pictures of themselves and I totally suck at delivering on mine. I somehow feel like a phony because I don’t want to look like I’m staging a pose, I want it to look natural and somehow you can get a sense of who I am and not who I want to be. Make sense?
Find My Passion
Been wanting to write about how I need to find my passion again. Whether it be diving back into my singing, making this blog thrive, finally get back into the gym and become a gym bunny (gym rat sounds gross), join a running club, take more pictures of things I love, maybe consider getting a dog in the near future again, travel and reunite with the ocean (I haven’t seen a beach since 2008 in San Diego, that’s insane). I just need to find those things that make me come alive. I feel like my light bulb went out and I need a new spark to ignite the flame I know that’s within.
I think every now and then bloggers share what they want for their birthday. Mine are pretty simple, I want my car fixed for cheap and maybe even throw in a spoiler to give it a sporty look. I want veneers for my birthday! I went to the dentist last week and he said my insurance may cover it if they file it under decalcification. Free grill? Yes please!
