We got married!

May 30, 2014

Well, we finally did the thing. On May 23rd, a day after my 25th birthday, Jose and I got married in front of our parents, my brother and his partner. Our officiant was the happiest judge in all the land (like, I’m 99% certain that he’s secretly Santa Claus?), our vows were beautiful, and we may or may not have cried a little. Miraculous, really, because this was planned in about a month. Because we bought our house last year,…

I started last week describing it as “Hell Week” because it was CRAZY busy and full of scary responsibilities. I’m so happy that it ended with an outpouring of love. My co-workers worked hard to surprise me with as many treats as possible, including a mini-birthday/bachelorette party. This doesn’t even cover how many amazing texts and Facebook posts/messages that I got from all of you flawless friends. You guys did so much to boost my life and help me power…

2013, Man

January 1, 2014

So as fun as last night was… This morning is feeling a little rough… That’s okay. 2013 was a crazy-amazing year filled with a lot of work, a lot of progress as a designer, and the beginning of my (hopefully quick!) career as an art student. I can confidently look back at this year as being successful, and not just because I perfected my hair and eyebrows. You know, the important things.…

Final Video Project – Homeward Bound

December 11, 2013

The final assignment for my GID project. I chose to do a “Memory Bank” video chronicling my journey from LA to San Bernardino to visit my parents this past weekend. To show audio editing I included the sound effects of being on the train in the beginning and end as well as recorded some backup vocals.…

My mom sent me this picture of my dad’s happy face as Jose and I were on the phone telling him the engagement news. Now I’m crying a little because I am SUCH a Daddy’s girl, and it means so much to me.…

the real reason why i love “new girl”

November 23, 2011
NewGirl

A few months into my sophomore year of college, I started renting a room in a woman’s house. Besides her, two guys lived there, one in the room next to me and one in a pool house in the backyard. For the first few months I was very nervous around them and refused to open up (also, I was dating somebody who got jealous way, way too much). And then, gradually, I realized how amazing it feels to live with…

Dress to Impress Everybody Else

August 9, 2011

My heterosexual life partner recently landed his first well-paying job after completing his second Master’s degree program, suddenly launching him (and myself, by proxy) into the “upper-middle class.” Before this position, this man didn’t pay much attention to what he wore; while he never looked disheveled, his standard attire was an old t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. He owned exactly two dress shirts, one polo shirt, and one pair of dress pants. Last weekend, after getting his first paycheck, he went…

As the year ends

December 31, 2010
Patrick Henry College Residential Village

2010 was a lot of things for me. I moved three times. I was hospitalized once. I started two new jobs. Throughout the year, I did have my boyfriend to help me out and keep me centered, which I am extremely grateful for. 2010 is also the year that I can remember for the year in which I lost my faith. Which is why it’s funny that, at the end of the year, I find myself finishing up a book…
