{Today I...}
-started my day with a strong cup of Starbucks coffee, as per usual. :-P
(it's the only way to go! and, the only way i get moving! hehe)

-am working on various assignments for school, taking breaks to keep my sanity in between.

-can't wait for "Dexter" this evening. It's the #1 thing I look forward to on Sunday.

..i really REALLY need to get more accomplished with school work. What a busy semester!

..i can't wait for my trip to Portugal next month! Woohoo! It's the first time ever leaving the country!

friday feelings.

I've definitely been gone for too long! =)

Here is what I'm up to at the moment:

listening: Curve
eating: red grapes
drinking: H2O
wearing: blue jeans and a white spaghetti tank top with salmon v neck shirt over it
feeling: a tad of a headache and need to eat dinner but mostly pleasant and calm
weather: a little breezy at sunset
wanting: sushi :-P
needing: more hours in the day
thinking: about my upcoming trip to Portugal
enjoying: the fact that its Friday and I can sleep in tomorrow! Yippee!
wondering: if I will get all my school work done over the weekend so I can have time to relax and get to feeling better. I'm trying to get over an ear infection this week.

Getting back..

I'm getting back in the swing of things, slowly but surely.

The last couple of weeks have been really difficult for me with my grandma passing away. Luckily I have had shoulders to cry on and comfort from friends and family members all around. I feel so grateful.

So, on a more positive note, I wanted to share my lined journal that I turned into a sketchbook. This is a project I began in early May of this year. =)
The last page of the tomato pin cushion is for my grandma.

(more pages to share on the next post)

~All my love~

I can't help..

I can't help what's going on in my life right now no matter how much I want to..
But, I need to find some positive energy to get me through my days and keep me strong.
I know I can't keep feeling sad all the time.
Dear inspiration and happiness, please find me.

The last few days have been very difficult for me and my family as we received some distressing news regarding my dear grandmother. She has cancer. The doctors are still running tests and we don't know too much information at this time. I've been at the hospital for days now by her side. It's really hard not to cry while I'm there.

My heart is filled with sadness right now.
It's been so hard to concentrate, and I can't even wrap my head around my summer school classes.. :-(
I'm not sure how long I will be away. I just need to take some time and be with my family.
I hope to be back soon with some positivity.
Please keep my grandma in your thoughts.
Thank you..xoxo.

Happy Friday!

Hello! Quick post today!
I've been crazily busy this week with my summer courses that I hardly have the time for blogging. :/ Lame, I know..
Hope to catch up this weekend with some fun posts in between studying.

Here's a couple shots from my sister's graduation this past Wednesday evening.
I'm so proud of her! =)
Tonight I'm going to see the 80's band, Great White perform here in SA. I'm a little over the top excited today. :-P
