The Good Day

today was one of those really really really good days. 
one of those perfect days
where everything aligned rightfully into its place.
where the smile didn't leave my face -
she did not slumber nor sag.
where the hair goddesses touched my scalp and said,
"today you're going to have a fantastic hair day"
"as a matter of fact, your hair will behave all week"
where the cool, crisp autumn air kissed my rosy cheeks.
where those beautiful blue eyes glanced over at me,
then for a slight moment I finally forgot about you.
you special, sweet, handsome you.
where I took those selfies and my cat sat perfectly in that spot.
where my Matisse came to life;
 I kept reviving it & will continue to revive it.
it was one of those days that I wish could repeat
over and over again.

Just The Week

This week served me well. Extremely well.
It all started on Monday. Over the weekend I was working on this giant painting project and was so nervous to turn it in. It was three pieces which incorporated supplies from a hardware store, some of our favorite patterns, food wrappings, and we had to get our inspiration from a famous artist. I chose Sigmar Polke.
Those are my three creations. I painted on the largest canvas ever….well for me it was massive (36x48in). The smaller painting was inspired by the artist Matisse.
I'm an art student right now and haven't done a very good job at showing off my work on this blog and on every other social networking platform that I have. The reason, as stated before, was for negative judgement. Well what the freaking hell I need to get over it. So this is the start of me putting my artwork out there for random weirdos to see. Not that I'm calling my readers weird, but I mean, there has to be at least one weirdo reading this thing constantly. And by weirdo I mean creepy stalker guy. Cause I have had some of those in my past. Hello creepy stalker guy.
Anyways, I am SUPER PROUD of how all three turned out. I will post larger photos of each painting soon. annnnd I guess I'll post pictures of my other paintings from my last project.

I have been on a chai kick lately. For the past three weeks I have been drinking chai tea every. single. day. My friend told me that this ice cream parlor has a chai flavored ice cream that they made and of course I needed to check out this creation. It was heavenly. The ice cream was not only chai, but coconut AND dairy free!!!!!! I mean what more could I have wanted in ice cream?!
Oh by the way, the place is called Fat Cat Creamery. Really? The name has the word "cat" in there and they have cat pictures everywhere. This is pretty much the closest thing to Houston having its very own cat cafe. Man it is just too good to be true.

Oh yes, another reason why this week was good is because I made an A on this paper that I was working on and also scored an A on the test for the very same class. Basically I'm going to get an A at the end of the semester and basically I'm going to throw confetti and glitter at everyone that walks past me because we all just need to party about this.

Ohhh and how could I forget to mention that its also November which means No Shave November for men and that means by the end of this month I'm going to be basking in the glory of bearded men on every corner of Houston *insert emoji with happy face wearing sunglasses*
Picture from here:

& Thanksgiving is this month. Aaaaaah November you are off to a very good start.

Oh October,

October left me feeling very grateful for the people in the above photos. This is my little crew that I have been currently hanging out with on campus. I love that I can be myself around these three. There have been plenty of times that I have laughed till tears came rolling down my face and almost to the point of me peeing my pants. Especially my friend Anthony. That kid definitely knows how to get the biggest air of laughter out of me. It's friends like this that make me come back to reality and realize that I currently have some of the greatest people in my life right now. These past few years I have gone through losing friends, picking back up old friendships and gaining new ones. I can already tell that these three are most likely going to always stick around.
I met another famous person at work last weekend. I served Steve Baldwin his coffee! When he was ordering his drink I kept thinking to myself "this guy just looks way too familiar" I kept starring at him and he totally noticed I was creeping. When I handed him his iced coffee I asked him "who are you?" he then laughed and said "who are we all?" hahahah. He was a character thats for sure.
This month I had the pleasure of meeting some cool people at my job. Just another reason why I enjoy working in the airport so much. It's crazy to think that I haven't even been working there for a full year and I already pretty much have a notebook filled of the crazy beautiful memories that I have made while working there.
October totally felt like spring time. I wasn't complaining though because for a second I could have sworn that my birthday was just around the corner. But at least the weather cooled down. Ohhh and currently as I'm typing this I'm able to wear long sleeves and maaaan its just making me feel all jolly inside because I just love the crisp cold air so much.

My friend took me to this new cafe that just opened up in Houston. Basically its going to be my new home for the next few years because that place is freaking heavenly. The vibe in there was incredible. They did a really good job with designing the place and that says a lot coming from me.
Random: I just had to take a picture of this beautiful bearded man in there because hello, any man with a beautiful beard needs to be photographed and displayed for the world to see. Men & beards. Men & beards reading books. Men & beards acting goofy. *drools*heart eyes*drools*

I played cards against humanity for the first time this month and beat everyone. This was an amazing defeat because I never win at anything. It also proves that I'm a pretty hilarious person ;)

I ate fancy smancy pizza that I got for free. I was in luck day.

Went on many walks in my neighborhood, which isn't anything new. I love my neighborhood so much.

I painted and painting. On monday I have a huge project thats due and I'm soooo nervous about it. I think its turning out pretty cool. At least that is what people say when I asked them what they think. I hate that I get so nervous about my artwork. Blaaaaahhhh.
Then there was Halloween. Of course with my luck I had to work. So I decided to bring Halloween to Starbucks and try my best to pull off a cat. People kept telling me all day that they liked my cat ears, so I would say that I accomplished putting a smile on everyones face.

Thanks for being good to me October :)
