058-365. mon cousine favorite

i talked to my cousin, samantha, tonight on skype for the first time in almost three years. it's been that long since we were on different continents for a long period of time. to clarify, she is the one who goes to different countries. i go to different states. lol currently, she is in frankfurt, germany. she was just offered an internship at a huge ad agency, actually, so she is stayin there for a while! sucre!

i miss her sooooooooooooooo much and although i know she is having a good time over there...i wish we could hang out. it's purely for selfish reasons. lol sometimes i feel like she is so far away...and she is. but she's never felt so far before. i don't know how explain it. last night, i didn't feel as alone as i normally do these days.

anyway, i think technology is so amazing...but i also think it is important to stick to the basics. so i suggested that we write letters. we're both trying to learn different languages (her- german [bien sur] and me- french) so i also suggested we practice on each other. more difficult than you would imagine. way more. but it makes for an interesting time trying to translate :) it's fun so far, i just hope i start to absorb something at some point.

so, mon cousine favorite...

S'il vous plaît ne vous inquiétez pas pour moi. c'est la vie! tu me toujours manques et je t'aime!

we will be sitting on the dock of the bay together again one day! til then!

ps. she actually requested i go to the cowboy template. silly girl.

my uncle's claim to fame was his 80 foot shot at the buzzer than he made while on varsity in high school. he talks about it all. the. time. like uncle rico from napoleon dynamite. his team was the jefferson indians (another name you guys from the bay area might know, yes?? :)

he tried to shoot a golf ball through the hoop.

so i know the love theme is over and all, but how about one more for good measure? i love the fog that sits on top of the buildings and watching it burn off as i cross the bay bridge.


045-365. dix!

i love kisses from my niece and nephews on valentine's day. i also love that even though i'm single...i don't hate valentine's day. i'm just indifferent.

i guess this concludes this love theme, such a good idea!

033-365. nien

so today is gonna be pictureless. take the lack of a photo for what it is: today i accidentally deleted 300 pictures from my phone. lol (along with about 50 songs, and 10 videos) i don't know if i'm heartbroken or not because i can't remember too many things from those 300 pictures. nor do i ever go back and look at them. my phone feels slightly lighter. tomorrow i will post the picture of bobby's cake...if i can get ahold of one. that was deleted as well! bummer!


032-365. oopsies

so i've not posted for two days! weird. i refuse to get behind, so i am gonna backdate. lol

this is my nephew, bobby's, blueprint for the birthday cake he requested. red velvet on the inside, and psychadelic colors on the outside. instead of writing out the full colors, he put "pu" for purple, the big "W" for white, "b" of course for blue, and "g" for green. for the nose, he instructed that i put "e" for every color. i will post the outcome soon.
