March 25, 2013 I’ve wanted a tattoo for quite some time and I was contemplating of what to get but I knew I wanted something for my dad, to symbolize him. My last name is unique compared to those who spell it as Louie. I mean I don’t see much or at least anyone with the way I spell it. My dad means the world to me and I wanted my tattoo to have meaning to it rather than the reason being it “spontaneous.” The hibiscus has a variety of meanings to it; delicate beauty, politeness, wealth, hospitality, and love. Whatever is it, it should mean something to you and that of course would be love. This tattoo is dedicated to my dad, the love I have for him and all that he has done for our family. To add on, hibiscus and other flowers are beautiful in general, I love flowers, and red is gorgeous color (also has the meaning of love, and red is for good luck ^.^) I didn’t want a flower of a Lily because of my name. I thought it was a bit weird. xD so I chose the next beautiful flower I liked.
All in all, I’m in love with what I got and how it turned out. No regrets whatsoever. :)<3
I think it has finally hit me that I am about to turn a year older. It doesn’t feel any different but to hit the big 20 is just different (maybe just a different number though). :P I’m not in that teen zone anymore. You have priorities and goals that you have to achieve, people to make proud of. Not saying that people have those importance in their lives once they hit 20. I’m saying that it’s just an eye opener that you are getting closer and closer to the real world. I am definitely going to be a kid at heart for a long long long time, no doubt about it. I will laugh at the unnecessary things let alone just at every little thing.
At this time you will realize who your true friends are and I really do think once you get into college, you will find your set of friends along with those from back at home who still sticks around in your life. I’ve learned to just keep looking forward and to not dwell too hard on the past or none at all. Focus on what is in front of you. Don’t change anything that shouldn’t be changed. Live in the moment and make the best of it :) I’m honestly blessed for everything. A lot has happened and I appreciate everything little thing because it has shaped me as to who I am today and I’m still on the road of learning more and more about myself and everything.
got called in for work. (i was still asleep LOL xD) work grind and i got my wish for more hours. thanks tiffany :D it was a little stressful cus i didn’t know where most of the clothes were suppose to go but after a while i got the hang of it, sorta. there were so many customers and i was not ready for questions to be asked. practice makes perfect.
i never thought i would ever be approached by a rude ass customer but i did today. how do you not know if you walked into a Hollister store thinking it was Abercrombie. are you kidding me?!
stayed until 1030, bussed home and good thing my mom picked me up! got myself a vanilla milkshake fix. YUM<3 that’s off my list now.
trying to enjoy the next three weeks i have here until i go back to Santa Cruz.
a good long day at work. some tumblr, some white collar, then KO.
Just keep working hard, no matter how stressful it may seem and feel. You’re going to put as much as effort as you can and stuff all the knowledge you can so you can be tested. A grade shouldn’t be based on how smart you are cus that shouldn’t be the case but it is… just try your best. do your best. ask for help when you need it. regurgitate all the stuff you learned and understand it. don’t just do it, to do it. actually understand the material. This is for your own benefit and your own success to make everyone that loves you, proud.
When the tough gets going, remember why you’re doing this and never think about giving up. Maybe take a small break to recollect yourself and start over again.
Just stop digging that hole. Just stop. For one, you’re only going to go deeper and deeper and you won’t be able to get out. Two, you’ll save yourself the energy from digging the hole and also trying to get out if you end up getting in. You’re basically burying yourself alive. Save the trouble, the emotions, just everything and convert it into good things.. wonderful things that helps you stay on top.
