Hello Friends

Hello my dear friends. It has been a while. 

Life has been pretty hectic lately. This semester I am taking two psychology classes, one statistics, and a chemistry class. Yeah, that's a lot of work that I have in store for me in these next few months and I am already feeling the load. But I have learned that I am 60% sure I want to change my major to psychology. I'm going to see how these next few weeks go with my psych classes then I will make the final decision. 

So what is new with me? 
- Well I am still at Starbucks and still enjoying it. 
- I made an appointment at the hair salon to dye my hair for next month. I have been using a box for the past year and I noticed that my hair is pretty much damaged so hopefully a proper dye will revive my dry brittle hair. 
- It has been very cold in Houston lately and I ENJOY IT SO MUCH. 
- A couple weeks ago I had two guys hit on me in the same week. That has never happened to me before. I think the stars were aligned that week or something. The problem is I made a small promise to myself that this year would be a "no guy year". Meaning no dates, no boyfriends, no whateveryoucallthemmakeoutthings….noooothing. This year I just want to focus on myself. I hope that doesn't seem selfish. But in my past years I have had nothing but stupid little relationships that never meant anything. I'm tired of those. I feel like Ted Mosby before he met his wife. I don't care if the 'right' guy comes along. If the 'right' guy came along I would know it right off. Maybe, I don't know, I'm not counting on it. Anyways, as I said before this year is all about me and finding out more things about myself. I don't mind making new friends and getting to know people. I just don't want any, um whats that word? ohhh yeah  r o m a n c e this year.
queue: "if ya like it then ya shoulda put a ring on it" 

Well that went in a different direction haha. 

I hope you all are enjoying your January! I'm going to sleep now at 9 pm because I have to wake up at 4:30 in order to be at work by 5 am. Yaaaay early morning coffee shift. *just kidding*

Precious January

So far january has been so good to me. I spent time with old friends, took many walks in the extreme cold (thank you polar vortex), gave a painting to another dear friend, and learned how to make a venti black coffee with three shots espresso, combined with 2 pumps vanilla and 3 pumps caramel AND chai. Quite possibly the nastiest drink imaginable then have them complain about the price because it came out to be a $7 drink. What the heck do you think it's going to come out to be when you add so much crap in your coffee? Anyways, that little part was about my job at Starbucks and honestly I do still really like it.

I hope your january has been going well so far.

Heeeey January, Heeey 2014, Heeey Goals

Well it is January 3rd and this seems to be my first post of 2014 (*insert giddy dance*). So far the year has started out pretty crazy. I finally started my job at Starbucks (ahem, like a month after they hired me) but I guess when you work at the airport they have to do a very thorough back ground check. Maybe that's why it took so long? Anyways, I'm not complaining. There was also a very tiny scare with my cousin going to the hospital. But all was well and it was nothing very serious. So a lot has happened within the span of these first few days of the year.

I decided to once again make some goals for the new year. I had originally not wanted to, but then thought about it and realized that I needed to keep my mind focused on tasks to achieve and then there is always that amazing feeling of crossing a task off your list.

2014 goals:
- blog more! I made this resolution for last year and achieved it! So my goal for this year is to blog just a little bit more than I did last year. I want to share more things that are going on in my life. The ups and downs, happy and sads, all of it.
- create more. For christmas gifts I drew some of my friends and they all LOVED it. I put their personality into my paintings and that gave my art work uniqueness. Painting opened up something inside of me. In a way it made me fall in love with art just a little bit more. I know that I am a creative person, I just need to practice it more than I was last year.
- share my creations. I am very very shy with sharing my creations with people. Most of the reason why is because of criticism. But you know, I don't care anymore. If I think that I created something cool I am going to share it with everyone! What is the point of hiding my gifts? There is no point to it at all. So get ready so see my imagination blown up onto anything.
- take more pictures. I also made this resolution last year and I think I achieved it. I just want to bump it up a bit more and use the different cameras that I have and actually print them out. I haven't printed out pictures in years. I think the walgreens photo center will probably become my other home this year.
- wear my retainer every night. Yeah. I slacked last year and I need to get back on the band wagon with this one.
- redo my bedroom!! Okay so I made this resolution last year and didn't do a thing about it. This year I will sell all of my furniture, finally buy a beautiful book shelf (because all of my books are on the floor [shoot me]), and make more space in my room.
- focus more on my studies. Transferring to an actual university made me realize that I needed to study more. Last semester kicked my butt. No more slacking (for real) and let school come first before anything.
- change my major. I realized that majoring in education is a waste of my time and money. Education needs to be my minor. So now I need to make my decision on either majoring in psychology or art/art history. WHICH ONE DO I CHOOSE AND HOW DO I KNOW WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?! ugh. In the next 3 months I need to make the decision.

Those are my goals/resolutions. I have a feeling that this year I will achieve all of them and feel proud of it. Did you make any goals this year? If so I want to hear about them!
