Recommendation of the Week

I mentioned on my last post how I've been watching a LOT of tv shows since i've been unemployed, so I thought I'd share my latest obsession with y'all.

I will warn you, this show has a lot of nudity compared to a regular show, but less than Game of Thrones, you get me? Still I've been having a blast watching this series. 

Just a bunch of girls on their 20`s trying to get their shit together, and come on, I think almost everyone at that age is just trying to figure out what to do next... at least that's my case haha.

There are a lot of things I can assure you will be identified with, you can connect with any of the characters on any of their situations because you have probably been through something similar.

The way I see it is the story of four girls trying to find themselves, just like we all are. Everything from jobs to unemployment, virgins and sex, drugs and rehab, even mental illness.

There's really anything else I could write without describing the whole thing, you guys just need to watch this. And yes as it happens with everything some of you will love it and some will hate it, but that's just life.

Just give it a try and if you do love this show you will know what I was trying to say.

At least just watch the trailer and make me happy (:

If you do start to watch this show please tell me what your thoughts are!

Overcoming the Winter Depression

Image from The Law of Attraction

I am totally not writting this to make you guys feel down or whatever, I just felt like writing how I deal with my winter mood swings since this is a thing that affects me and many people every year...

This year was different to many others... I generally have a lot of things to do, job, church choir, teaching sunday school, be with family, be with friends, be with boyfriend, etc... But this time I didn't have that much to do...

I had to quit my job on october because I wasn't getting paid... at all. This girl gotta pay her own bills... So I started looking for a new job, but I couldn't find anything! It honestly felt like the universe was plotting against me... It had been quite a while since I was unemployed, nearly 5 years!

So, after a month and a half, I lost hope and gave up looking for a job... I said: "I'll take this time to rest and think what I want out of life, I'll start looking for a job on january"

But that was just it, I had no idea what I wanted out of life, what I wanted to do with my life... I still have no clue by the way...

So I started to get all existentialist, thinking how I had wasted this past year, how I'm already on my mid 20's and still haven't achieved anything I considered worthy. And since I couldn't find a job I started to lose faith in my abilities, I though: "Maybe I'm not that great as a designer... maybe I suck..."

And all this within a month... I spent my days laying on the couch on my pj's watching every tv series or movie I hadn't seen, and listening to every depressing tune on my playlist. And of course I started to crave everything I watched on TV... fucking TV...

People, especially girls... PLEASE ignore anything you see on TV, that's not real life...

Back to the point.. I was being a pussy and letting my feelings take over my mind... That's not cool....

So how did I overcame this? I literally kicked my ass out of that couch. There's no use in feeling sorry for myself... a job wasn't gonna land in my lap and make everything perfect again. I had to get up and do something for myself.

I started sending resumes and actually started working out.

People, working out is like the best therapy ever! You'll never feel bad or depressed after a workout, maybe sore... but the feeling of doing something to improve your health is great!

And yeah... I still have no job.. and no money... and some debts... I still have no idea what I want to do with my life but I'm no longer feeling down about it... besides, there are people in the world with bigger problems than mine, and I don't say it to like feel good about myself, on the contrary, I feel bad about myself for letting me down for such trivial things....

I still have plenty of time to figure things out, God help me...

There's no use wasting time thinking about all the thins you haven't done, all the time you think is slipping through your fingers... Better to do something with that time, than literally throwing it away...

YOLO has a deeper meaning to me now, and yeah I am aware that sounded ridiculous... But bare with me here... 

YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE. That's the ultimate truth. You only have one life to make the best out of it, to achieve your goals, to go after your dreams, not to throw it away abusing alcohol and drugs... people please.. that's just being stupid...

That said... I really hope I didn't bore you to death... Those who made it to the end, you have my eternal love (:

Get up of that couch! Take life by the horns! Or whatever way you wanna say it.... Just do something for yourself.

Love and stuff.

PS. Also... I changed my hair! Go check it out on my IG!

On my slow wifi and next hairstyle

Pasé literal 3 días descargando toda la suite de adobe! No puedo creer que haya tardado tanto! En verdad me decepciona la velocidad de mi servicio de internet... me impresiona más bien...

Y bueno mientras bajaba.. instalaba y demás me puse a limpiar y acomodar todos mis archivos... es impresionante la cantidad de archivos de la escuela y fotos que tenía olvidados.... Encontré fotos con mi cabello rojo, con mi fleco rosa, y mis mechones azules haha (todo en diferentes etapas cabe aclarar)

En fin, les cuento esto para compartirles mi más reciente ocurrencia... Estoy dejando que me crezca el cabello, usando shampoos especiales y cuanta cosa me recomienden para que crezca más rápido. Pero yo soy una persona muy inquieta la verdad, no puedo pasar mucho tiempo sin hacerme un corte loco o teñirme el cabello, es una batalla interna.

Recientemente una de mis amigas Noir Eloise, se tiñó el cabello en colores pastel, y aunque ya había considerado hacerlo antes, me animó más a intentarlo haha (en especial porque estoy desempleada y planeo trabajar por mi cuenta).

Esto es un plan a largo plazo, quiero esperar medio año más para darle oportunidad a mi cabello de que crezca más.

En fin, les dejo algunas fotos de lo que traigo en mente (: 


I literally spent like 3 days downloading the whole adobe suite! I can't believe it took so long! I am really disappointed on my wifi provider... actually more like impressed...

But oh well... while I was downloading and installing and whatnot, i took the task to clean and arrange all mi files... I was amazed at the amount of files from school and photos I had just laying all over the hard drive.... Among all the mess I found some pictures of myself when i had red hair, my pink fringe, and my blue pieces of hair (all this at different moments of my life haha)

I write all this because I want to share with you guys my latest idea. I am letting my hair grow since I cut it back on february, I've been using special shampoos, and whatever people tell me will make my hair grow faster. But I am really hyper when it comes to my hair, I can't stay long with the same style, I just can't, it bores me!

Recently one of my closest friends, Noir Eloise, dyed her hair pastel colors, and though I had already in mind doing this to my hair, this just pushed me to really give it a thought and decide wether or not to commit a crime with my hair (specially since i'm unemployed and going freelance)

This, however, is a long term decision, I want to wait six months to do it so I can grow my hair as long as I can till then.

I'll post some pictures down below so you guys can get a better idea of what I'm aiming for.

Díganme que opinan (: o si alguna vez lo han intentado.

Let me know your thoughts or if you have ever tried this! I'd love to hear!

No estaba muerta, andaba de parranda

Hahaha si claro I wish!! Esta es sólo una súper mini entrada para disculparme por tantos meses de ausencia. Han pasado demasiadas cosas en mi vida últimamente unas muy malas y otras no tanto pero ay la llevo. 

Gracias a Dios tuve la oportunidad de tener unas muy buenas y merecidas vacaciones para despejar me de todo el alboroto de la ciudad y pronto volveré con todas las pilas lo prometo!

Les mando un enorme abrazo y saludos desde Playa del Carmen!!

Rafflecopter was being mean to me! Didn't let me pick the winners, so I made the report, and I had to do it by hand =( oldschool, with the little papers and stuff... (

But oh well!! I'm not gonna post the winners here, the winners will recieve an email from me saying congrats and with the code that can be used only once, and all that jazz.

I'm sorry I've been with so much things in my head I just can't find the time again to write a decent post. I do hope to get one ready for this weekend.
