Waking up to a stranger...

Lourdes here.

In my bed. Being a lazy butt.

Tired as ever but every time I close my eyes, I start to think. So, I open my computer and Pinterest  gets the best of me. That site has consumed my thoughts. Every time I see something cute I start to think

"I should pin that".

I swear I have problems. And Pinterest isn't the only one. A couple of weeks ago I posted about a robbey that I witnesssed at a pool. It scared the shit out of me.

Then a couple of days later I receive a message from the university message system about a stabbing.

Then a  week and a half after that I hear about the  shooting in Aurora.

I am scared people. Scared to the point that I am having nightmares. 
I actually have had the same dream for the past couple of days. In my dream I am sleeping and something wakes me up. When I look up, I see a stranger staring back at me. This freaking creeps me out. I am so afraid of someone breaking/sneaking in during the night. It's to the point that I double/triple check my windows and door before I settle into bed for the night. Crazy, huh?

How do I get rid of this fear? I ask because I need sleep. I wake  up in the middle of the night and it leaves me exhausted in the morning.  any suggestions?

Ok... It's about time I start pinning... Ahem... I mean head to bed.

Love you all!

What more could I ask for...

It's Friday night.

 FINALLY! 

The week has been long and grueling. Work has been keeping me busy but there have been some things that have been on my mind. Serious things. Life changing things. You are probably going to read this post and think

 "She really is crazy" 

but I have to put my thoughts down. I have to make them real. If I don't, then I think I am going to go crazy. It has taken me a long time to get the courage to put things down. That is why it has been a week since I have written something to post. I have just been blah. No mood for blogging...

Colon and I have been dating for a little more than five years. That's a long time. We met our first year of undergrad and started as friends. I guess you could say that our friendship progressed into something more. Throughout the last five years, we have talked about

"the future".

Dun. Dun. Dun.

We have talked about it and we both see ourselves together. We agree on a few things. We DON'T want to be long distance forever. We want to get married and have kids. But, he sees things more clearly than I do. In every situation, he sees things so clearly. That's what I love about him.

The future. How bright the future seems when I think of spending it with Colon. But then I start thinking about the details. I let thoughts get in the way. And it is so up in the air. Where will we be? Where will we live? When is this long distance going to end?

Colon and I have been long distance for much of our relationship. He is so smart and has been able to get internships which takes him away for six months each year. It has taken a toll on me though. I freaked out on the first internship but I have learned to accept them. It's important for each of us to to what we need to do when it comes to our careers. These internships are what helps him progress in his career. I understand and that is why I am willing to sacrifice my time with him. But, that's just it. I HAVE sacrificed and I don't want to have spend anymore time with distance between us.

He graduates a year from now and then sets off for his job. A job that is NOT going to be in Florida. The state that I have lived for most of my life. The state that I pictured myself having kids in. The state that I love. But, I could learn to love another place. I am easily swayed. I am negative because I hate change. But once I  experience the change I start to realize how awesome it is.

I think that is what is scaring me. The realization that things are going to change. Out of my comfort zone. I am afraid of moving to a place where I do not know anybody. Making friends is not easy for me. Colon will be fine. But will I be? I know I will be. I'll know Colon and I know I will meet people. I know I will.

I will be with the love of my life. What more could I ask for?

Hellooooo Beautiful...

Dark Knight Rises was AMAZING!

I didn't expect to like it so much, but I left the theatre totally satisfied. So, I take back what I said yesterday and will replace it with :

It was TOTALLY worth waking up early. GREAT MOVIE! WATCH IT!

AND... if you watch it you will see a preview for a very special movie that will star a very special man. 

A man that stole my heart a few years ago. 

A man that is extremely sexy.

A man that actually stole my breath when saw him on screen at the theatre. 

Can you guess who it is????  No?

Just feast your eyes on this man. 


All images found on google images

OH MY GOD. He is just so beautiful. Just give me one day with him. Ugh....

After seeing the Superman preview, he has been flying around in my head ALL DAY.  Can you see why? No? The pictures really don't do him justice. You should see him in "the Tudors", "Tristan and Isolde", and all the other shows/ movies that he is in. 

Just give me a moment while I sit here and dream about this man...

Oh yeah... It's almost Friday!

How is everyone today? I hope you all are amazing because I am!

It's the day after hump day (AKA Wednesday. I have had someone ask me what hump day was!). YAY! One day away from the weekend and I am so excited! I have no idea what I am doing this weekend, but whatever. At least I will get to sleep past 7am.

Tomorrow is going to be eventful. The company I work for was extremely generous and is given a free screening of "Dark Night Rises" tomorrow. I am so excited and am very thankful to be working for such a great company. The only thing about it is the time of the screening. if you know me, then you know that I HATE waking up early. I do it for work. But this screening is even earlier than my work start time. It starts at 7 AM sharp. How am I going to do this?????

And now... on to the random things that are going on in my brain.

*Yesterday Colon sent me this video. I absolutely love this song. I used to listen to it all the time in high school (or was it middle school?). I cannot remember. Anyways...Listen to it. I bet you will enjoy it!




* have you seent he movie "Brave"? I did and I loved it. The previews before the movie were great and the Pixar short was amazing. Watch these clips...






Cute, right?

* OK... Colon is going to start rolling his eyes at about this time. I was surfing the web today and came across the trailer for "Breaking Dawn" Part 2. I don't know how I feel about it. But I do think I am going to see the movie when it comes out. 



and....
 I know Colon will not come. He has refused to watch these movies with me. He has this thing about watching "chick flicks" in the movie theatres with me. It's kind of sad. Good thing I don't mind going to the theatres alone.

*Speaking of Colon. He FINALLY posted something on his blog. He's so smart and you can see it in his first post. Check it out here.

OK... I bought four bottles of wine today and one of them needs to be opened. I will do the honors!

Cause he don't love your eyes...he don't love your smile

First things first. I would like to thank Ashley from Adventures of Newlyweds for posting the mash up of "Boyfriend" by Justin Bieber and "Girlfriend" by N*Sync. [[I am talking as if I know her personally. I don't. But I think she is awesome!]] Have you heard it yet? No? Yes? Either way...


 I DARE YOU


 to press play and listen to it while you continue to read. 




Bah... I remember when "Girlfriend" came out. I loved it. I loved N*Sync. Memories...

Anyways, it was a long day today and I am currently in relax mode. I have "The Hills" on Netflix [[I absolutely love Lauren Conrad. She was my favorite on the show (remember "Laguna Beach"?)]], a bowl of cherries in front of me and a glass of Moscato to sip on. All in all. My night has been wonderful so far. All I need now is Colon. I miss him terribly and Chris' departure has made me realize how lonely I am without Colon here. 

BABY COME HOME!

I am everywhere today. Sorry if you cannot follow along. I am just in such a good mood. I guess I could use my good mood to continue with the "Is that normal?" link-up. I didn't do it last week, but am excited to do it this week. Colon actually answered the questions. 

Since he is out of town, I emailed the questions to him. What did I get in return? His first email said...

"i'll answer all at once: 

what is normal?


jk, ill answer them later"


That's my boyfriend for you!

So, here's the deal. I will post his answers in blue and I will put my answers in purple. Got it? got it!




1. Is it normal for 2 men to hug?

yes. if they know each other, it is totally acceptable. if they don't, it is only acceptable at sporting events


I absolutely agree with Colon. I think it is OK. Doesn't bother me. Totally normal. 

2. Is it normal to gag on your toothbrush while brushing? 

yes, though i admit that i tend to overdo it because that's how my dad does it. that's how you clean your tongue... right?


I think it is normal as long as you aren't making yourself gag. 


:::cough::: Colon do you make yourself gag? WEIRDO!!! :::cough:::

3. Is it normal to wear the same bra daily? 

I wouldn't know. [Yeah...sure...] My goal is to remove said bra daily. I don't think it's the same as underwear, because boobs don't get as sweaty as down there, for the most part.


I personally try not to wear them more than two or three days in a row. Less time if I was sweating really bad during the day. Although, I sometimes forget how long I wore my bra. So... sometimes I wear it for longer. Disgusting? I don't care!


4. Is it normal for grown women to frequently use the words "like" or "um" while speaking?

Maybe. I know i say "um" a lot. "like" is more annoying. but this is the effect of talking faster than you can think


So, apparently Colon is a woman.... and let's move on. I do think this is normal. I do it because I frequently forget words. I know it is annoying but whatever. It just comes out. 

5. Is it normal eat cake batter/dough? 

yes. or at least it should be. it's the perfect way to cheer up your girlfriend. cheap and easy


Good job baby. Yo know the way to my heart. I definitely think this is normal. PLUS it HAS to be normal since Colon agreed. Right?

6. Is it normal to go "commando" in public/at work? 

No. it's also very uncomfortable. pretty inappropriate for work too.


Yes.


 JUST KIDDING.


 I, too, think this is inappropriate. Come on people. This is slutty. And slutty is not professional unless you want to be a stripper. [[No offense to aspiring strippers out there]]

7. Is it normal to have long toenails? 

As a soccer player, i have to say no. It can actually be pretty dangerous


He's ALWAYS thinking about soccer. Sheeesh. I don't think it is normal. I actually cannot stand long toe nails and it creeps me out when I see girls get acrylic toe nails. I think it is weird and creepy. 

8. Is it normal to try on an article of clothing in the middle of the store? 

I'll test out a shirt or something. as long as it's appropriate and you're not giving the store a free show


Oooohhh... free show? I like!!! 


No really. It's OK if you are trying on a jacket or something that you have to strip to get into. It's NOT normal if you have to take off your shirt or pants to try it on. I don't want a "free show". 

9. Is it normal to tell someone to be quiet or "shhhh" someone in a quiet setting? ie. church, movie theater, meeting, etc. 

A lot of people do it but it doesn't really help


I don't really know. Why would it not be normal? I mean, If you are in a theatre and someone is talking during the movie, then why is it not OK to "shh" them? Maybe say it a little nicer? 


10. It it normal to change clothes multiple times before leaving the house? 

No. 
YEAH RIGHT. He will say that he gets ready quickly and the first outfit he puts on is the outfit he will walk out in but it's a lie. But I have seen him change plenty of times. He's not as bad as me though. I'll give him that. 


Isn't Colon a good sport? 


I miss him. 


Have a great night everyone.


Hugs and kisses

Chris...come back!

It's been about a week since I have checked into this here blog. I promise that I had a good distraction. Can you guess what it is? Did you even pay attention to the last post? No? Then go read it really quickly and I will wait right here. 

::::

::::

::::

::::

Are you caught up? Yes?

 Well, then you know that Chris was in town for the past week. It was one of the best weeks I've had in the past couple of months and it makes me love Chris more. I love that he is so much like me and is fine with being lazy all of the time. there were moments that we would retreat into our rooms and read. But, we were not lonely or bored.

This past weekend, we spent a significant amount of time with his family. OH. MY. GOD. I loved them. They blew my mind. They were loud. They said what was on their mind. They were open. Very different from my family but I loved them just the same.

So, I  had an amazing week (and weekend) with my best friend. But of course, good things always come to an end. Yup. He left today. I tried to make light of his leaving but I was actually fighting (successfully... I might add) tears.

The apartment feels so empty. <====That is a statement that should shock people. I hate having people in my apartment (for long periods of time) and Chris is the first person (other than Colon and my family) that did not get on my nerves while staying in my apartment. I like my space. I like my alone time. AND I hate it when people invade it. But Chris managed to get past that bubble and I actually feel lonely now that he is gone.

So yes. I am a little bit depressed. This lead to a trip to the store to buy back up bottles of wine. To be honest, I am sitting here finishing off my second glass. But I am fine. I realize how lucky I am to have had Chris visit Gainesville. I am lucky to have such an amazing best friend. A friend that I have so much in common with. A friend that loves me for my quirks.

I miss him terribly.

But... Life goes on. It's not like I will never see him again. I get to look forward to Skype sessions and I promise to visit him.

To sum this up. I love Chris and I miss him like crazy.

Before you leave, please read this article and please pray for the family of this girl. I cannot imagine something like this happening to me or my family and am praying for them.

Keep them in your prayers.

XO

Classy Sundays and a little bit of wine...

Let me start by saying that I have already had a few glasses of wine to celebrate my best friends accomplishment of passing his masters exams. So,

CONGRATULATIONS CHRIS!

Now that we have established that I am quite happy (and tipsy....), lets do a recap of my week. So sit down, relax, and enjoy.

It has been such a great week so far. I wish I could say that it was due to things in my everyday life, but I would be lying if I did. It all started last Sunday. Crazy events happened during the day but the day ended with the greatest gift.


Chris came!!!!!!!!!! 

I had not seen him in a couple of years and I was beyond excited! Seeing him brightened my day. He truly is one of my best friends! For those of you who do not know, I met Chris on campus during our Freshman year at UF. It was a beautiful Florida night and our Chemistry class had been moved to a different room. We both were looking for the room and became friends.

He moved to Virginia after graduating from UF and has just completed an online Masters program with UF. In order to complete the program, he had to return to Gainesville to take a few exams. Lucky for me that I get to see my best friend.

It has been amazing to have him here. He is so much like me and gets me. I don't have to put too much effort into our friendship. I can just be myself.

What else has made me happy? My boyfriend. Yesterday was a stressful day at work and he surprised me with a bouquet of flowers.



He is amazing and makes me so happy. These flowers made me so happy. Yet they made me miss him more. It has been almost two months and I have not seen him. i cannot wait until we can move on from this long distance shit. 

Oh something else exciting happened last weekend. Wait, did I say it was exciting? I meant that it was f*ing scary. A friend and I decided to have a nice day at the pool. There we are sitting outside and talking when I noticed a guy scoping out the people at the pool. I mentioned it to my friend, made eye contact with him (giving him the "I see you" look), and kept up a conversation with my friend. All of a sudden, we hear a man yelling "stop". It turns out that the sketchy man asked this couple for a a towel and while they were starting to say "no", he yanked their iPad out of their hands and jumped the fence. Yup. We had a classy Sunday.

My life is interesting and boring at the same time.

Gotta love it.

I hope everyone else is having a great week! Now I have to go and lie down. Too much wine!

I nominate you...you...and you!

Back to work after such a wonderful day. At least I did not spend the day catching up on Real Housewives...which I may or may not have done over the past few weekends. I am kind of ashamed that I love the shows.

Actually....I am not. 

Watching these shows gives me a reason to laugh and fulfills my weekly need for drama. [[Better to get it from a TV show than in real life... right?]] Anyways, I always find myself picking favorites in these shows and my loyalties always seem to shift. 

But enough about reality TV. 

I was surprised the other day when I tweet from Nilda at Laughter, Love, and Necklaces. I "met" Nilda through the Bloggers Coast to Coast event hosted by Shane on Whispering Sweet Nothings. I have started to get to know her and I think she is awesome! 

So, this tweet basically let me know that she nominated me for the Versatile blogger award. I have never been nominated for any blog award and am usually not into link-ups and all that stuff. Saying that, I do want to say that this is such an honor. I started my blog for myself. I was not expecting ANY readers and I was fine with that. Now I am nominated for an award by someone who is not a member of my family! Ha!


So, here are the rules to the award:

1) Thank the nominating blogger and link to their site. check
2) Give 7 random facts about yourself. Can do!
3) Nominate 15 other bloggers, link to their sites and let them know! 



Here I go with the random facts:

1. I think I have trypophobia. Don't know what it is ...look it up! Creepy!

2. I love Archie comics. I used to collect them and now find myself buying them every time I go to the grocery store.

3. I absolutely love frogs. I would have one for a pet if Colon wasn't afraid of them opposed to having one. [[he really isn't afraid of them!]]

4. I cannot go without washing my hair once a day. I cannot stand the feeling of oil build up in my hair. 

5. I am afraid of needles and always get sick when I see them. Also, seeing operations of any kind (even on TV) will make me lightheaded and sick!

6. I was the mayor of Sonny's (in Gainesville) on Foursquare for a couple of weeks. Yes. I eat there a lot. 

7. When I tell a story, I do not get right to the point. I will tell you the smallest details to paint the picture. this is something that drives Colon crazy!


I am nominating the following blogs. I don't want to pressure any of them to create a post about the award, I just want to spread the word about the blogs. All of the blogs that I list here are blogs that I follow daily and that I look forward to read!

1. Ruffles and stuff  This is one of the first blogs that I followed. 
3. Megan @ Greetings from Texas Such a great read. I laugh every time I read her posts!
6. Colon @A Goog Engineer is a Lazy Engineer I HAVE to nominate him. He's my boyfriend. You can check out his blog if you want but he doesn't post often. 
8. Adam @ Books of Adam HILARIOUS

Go check them out!

By the time you read this I will already on my way back to Gainesville from Disney! I just wanted to pop in and say 

Happy Fourth of July

and

  Happy Birthday

to my beloved country. I hope everyone is having a fun day filled with fireworks, family, and barbecues!

You mean it's normal to....

Thank God it's Tuesday [night].

I cannot believe I just said that. On a normal week, I would hate Tuesdays. They are just too far from Friday. I would spend Tuesdays (and Mondays...and Wednesdays...and Thursdays... and Fridays... Pretty much every day of the week to be honest) longing for the weekend. But not this week. Wednesday is July 4th [AKA Independence day...Just in case you didn't know]. Fireworks. Barbecues. No work.


The last two days have been long and intense. My work day starting at 8am and lasting until 7pm. All I can say is that I admire people that do that on the regular. :::cough:::Kirsten:::cough::: Needless to say I am extremely relieved that I have tomorrow off. I can actually get some rest.

So i am going to stop my rambling and continue onto something fun. I had so much fun participating in the "Is that normal" link up and I wanted to do it again. So here I go!




1. Is it normal to live with your parents past the age of 24?


I think this depends on the person. Some people just aren't to that point in their lives yet. 


I just know that living at home past the age of 24 is not normal for me. But, I also left home when I went to college and I have never been back. I cannot imagine living at home anymore. I would feel bad. Like I am taking advantage of my mom. Especially since I have a degree. People need to grow up at some point and I think it needs to happen way before 24. 


Colon and I have had many conversations about this and according to my boyfriend Hispanics tend to live at home until they get married. I'm glad I am dating a Hispanic who doesn't live at home because in all honesty I wouldn't be able to get beyond that.


2. Is it normal to leave your house and/or car unlocked?


No. No. No. It terrifies me when people do this. Maybe I am paranoid and overprotective. I don't care. This is not normal. You might live in a gated community with a security guard BUT anything could happen. I think it is absolutely stupid when people do this. 


3. Is it normal to prefer using your a men's razor instead of a women's?


Yes. I get a better shave when I use men's razors. I love it. 


Ha. Colon is going to come back to Gainesville and find a men's razor in the shower. 

Colon. I promise the men's razor that you see in my shower is mine and does not belong to my Florida boyfriend. 



4. Is it normal to go back to bed right after showering for a quick nap?


I don't do this. SO I am going to go with no. Do people actually do this? Weird...


5. Is it normal to eat chocolate chips straight from the bag?


Is this NOT normal? I always thought this was. In my house, this is SO normal and happens SO often that I have to stop myself from buying chocolate chips. 


6. Is it normal to check behind the shower curtain or under the bed before you get in?


This was normal when I was younger. Not know. Not when I am 24. The only time I have done this recently is when I saw a roach in the apartment and it disappeared before I could kill it. I sure as HELL was looking under my bed to make sure that freaking roach wasn't there. [[If you could not tell, I am EXTREMELY afraid of roaches. It sucks that they live in the vegetation of Florida!]]


7. Is it normal to talk to yourself?


Yes. I am pretty sure this blog is me talking to myself. Plus, I don;t know how many times people have caught me talking to myself. sound Crazy? Oh f*ing well...




8. Is it normal to bite your nails?

Yes. Especially under stress. This is such a bad habit of mine. It has gotten to the point that I pick the skin around my nails. Horrible. Disgusting. But normal!


9. Is it normal to go to bed without brushing your teeth?


It happens. Sometimes you are just too tired and you just forget. Sounds disgusting. I know. I would say it's normal!


10. Is it normal to "baby talk" your pet?


Hmmmm... yes?!? I baby talk to my fish. I wouldn't call it normal, though. 



That was fun and now it's time to go to bed!

Kiss kiss. Hug hug.

XO



Entire or Rose?

Are you there blogger, it' me Lourdes.

Flashback to Judy Blume. It was Judy Blume right? 

Oh and I bet you are wondering what the title of this post is alluding to...

Anyways, yesterday, I said that I would update ya'll (ha! Colon will love that I used that contraction!) on my reading list. For those of you that are new to this blog space, I will fill you in. (You can also read this post to catch up). At the New-years-resolution-making-time, I decided that I would read a book a month. I am proud to say that I have exceeded that goal. When I finished reading my twelfth book (you can read about it here), I decided to extend it to 24 books for the year. I am proud to say that I have finished my 24th book.    This has shown my that:

a) I love to read
b) Colon's absence was good for my resolution, and
c) I read really fast!

So yes. After my last Book-a-month post, I was at my 17th book. I had just finished the 50 Shades of Grey series and was having Ana and Christian withdrawals. I was hopelessly in love with Christian and really needed another romance novel. Cue in the suggestions from fellow bloggers. I asked and you responded. You gave me book suggestions and I read some of them and added six books to my list. 

Then... I got tired of the whole romance genre. I needed to move on. 

Cue my trip to the public library. This trip rekindled my love affair with books. I walked in like a child in a candy store. I could not stop smiling. I went through the aisles and started thumbing through the pages of different books.

Suddenly, I came upon Kay Kenyon. My eyes lit up and I started to remember that I had intended to continue the "Entire and the Rose" series. I read the first book a year ago. It's entitled Bright of the Sky and you will not be able to put the book down once you start it. I promise that you will not be disappointed. If you are interested and you have a kindle, you should download it. It's free on Amazon

 After finishing this book, I was ready to start the second book.. BUT there was a complication. I am cheap and was not willing to buy all three of the books. Fast forward to last weekend. I came upon the last two books of the series and checked them out. When I got home, I was eager to start the reading. That was when I realized that I did not check out the second book of the series. There was no way that I was going back to the library. SO, I swallowed my cheap instincts and bought the second book on my kindle. 

It was totally worth it. A World Too Near (That is the title of the second book. I have no idea why I did not name it earlier) was engrossing. I could not put the book down and highly recommend it to people. I would give a description of the book but I have this bad habit of giving everything away. so, all I will say is

 "READ THIS SERIES!" It won't disappoint. Plus, if you read it, then you will know what my post title is about!

Hope everyone is having an awesome day!

XO

Routers just don't like me...

Here I am on a Sunday night. I am frustrated and about to flip out on the damn router. Yup. You read that right. My internet is still not working. I first noticed that my computer had trouble connecting to my Wi-Fi signal on Thursday after work. I did not panic at first. After reseting the router, I decided that I wouldn't waste time worrying about it and just wait to call Cox the next day if it still wasn't working.

Then comes Friday. I come home form work and try to connect wirelessly (sp?). It was a no-go. That was when I started to get frustrated. I got so frustrated that I called Cox and spoke with a representative. and THAT'S how I spent my Friday night! A 2-hour phone call for him to come to the same conclusion that I had come up with in the first place. 


To let off steam, I went out for dinner and spent the rest of the night at a coffee shop. Yes. My loner tendencies came out again. I sat at that coffee shop for hours and read. [By the way, I have been reading up a storm. I have added 5 or 6 books to my list since the last time I posted. I will update you on my reading list for the next couple of days!]

Since Colon was in Vegas for the weekend, I didn't expect to hear from him too much. So, I kept myself busy for the weekend. As usual, I was up by 8:30 on Saturday. [That sounds awful!]. I then went to a thrift store to check out the finds. little did I know that said thrift store was having a sale. I came out with so much and only pent $20. Seriously, I left with 30 to 40 books and some cute clothing pieces.

After dropping off my thrift store finds, I grabbed some lunch and headed to Devil's Millhopper. After walking the nature trail and taking pictures, I laid out a blanket by the sink hole, pulled out my book and lost track of time. I got a thousand mosquito bites and I almost drowned from the humidity outside. BUT I had fun. 


Today was clean-up day. I tidied the house and altered some of my thrift store finds from yesterday. Not so bad of a weekend. I WAS dreading work tomorrow but I then realized that we have Wednesday off for the 4th of July! Yay!

To end the post, I want to do a One Minute Writer entry.




Today's topic is

"Many people in the U.S. have been experiencing a heat wave. Describe something cold."

Here I go.

"There's something in the way that you brushed your hand on my face. After I told you how I felt, I could see it in your eyes. The way that you turned your body away from me. Your body language. You can't hide it from me. Although you may not be trying to hide it. your just reverting back to the old cold shoulder."


And with that, I bid you a goodnight!

Toodles!
