So this year was a blast, and I am so blessed to be alive and live this wonderful life that has been given to me.
Well of course, I started my Winter Quarter at De Anza, I think that was one of my weaker, yet strong quarters academic wise, but it really helped me a lot. I was able to spend time with Dylan of course, and this year we were able to pull off seeing each other almost every month. Quite wonderful, other than that, I don’t think this month was very eventful besides the kick-off of school.. OH I got my first ticket this month too. boo. Dylan also proposed that we should go to the Philippines together, I didn’t really think that was going to happen, but boy was I excited.
Fanfest with megs, it was awesome, and being able to hang out with her a lot was really nice. I also went to Tacoma again, and of course to spend Valentines day with Dylan. I’m so glad that I was able to go, I don’t remember it much, but I just know I had a really good time. Oh yeah I just remembered they auditioned for America’s Got Talent.. hehe.
Finished up Winter Quarter, pretty solid grades, and Dylan came home for spring break, I mean when it’s school mode, there really is not that much going on my life besides school, and working in the nursery, but thats it. Oh! And baseball started, went to a lot of games, it was really fun going into the season as champions, so much energy and spirit.. except it really hurt my wallet.
I was signed with StyleHaul on Youtube.. okay people don’t know this, but I make youtube videos. It’s a fun hobby of mine, and I surprisingly have a solid following of almost 6,000 subscribers. I must say I feel pretty accomplished. But being signed with stylehaul has really helped with my exposure. I do consider it a second job. I also started Spring quarter with only two classes and got an A and a B, not bad. I also had an epiphany, about my life choices..
School school school, lots of video making, and babysitting became a regular gig as well. I got to go to Tacoma again on a whim because I really wanted to see Dylan’s a capella group perform, since after all this time I have not been able to watch them. Really awesome and amazing.
Finished up school, had Dylan come home and really started to get into the swing of getting excited for our big trip. We worked at the church for Vacation Bible School, and it was really tough without Scott, but still fun. Lots of chillen and nothing big this month, since I was still in school for a majority of the month.
THE BIG MONTH! So, Dylan and I went on our big trip to Philippines and Cambodia. But first there was the still first half of the month. My parents went to the Philippines first so I spent 3 weeks alone, which wasn’t that bad, just a lot of time spent with Dylan and stuff.. Got to see Dirk and Carol’s awesome new musical the Project which had an amazing message of rethinking church and breaking out of the for walls of the church, but remembering what the church is about. It was a really eventful month. We went to the Philippines, and in the Philippines we stayed in Angono, my moms home town. Then we went to Boracay and it was beautiful. After Boracay, straight to Cambodia and that was the first week of August.
We went to Siem Reap, and explored the temples of Angkor Wat, and it is something I definitely need to do again, I can’t believe we were there. Then we went back to the homeland, and Dylan got to really meet my family and we just relaxed. This was an experience that was really special to me, and it helped me learn a lot about myself, my relationship, and Dylan. We went back to the States, and man it was bittersweet, and then I had to part ways with Dylan for a while again because he had to start school, but do not fret! I went back again.
Since I didn’t start school til the end of September, I went to visit Tacoma again and spent two weeks just hanging out up there, I really enjoy it and it was just so peaceful. Then I went back home and started school, bleh. Tackled 3 classes, boo.
School, Work, Church..BUT ANA came into town, and it just reconnected a bunch of us, and we hung out for the month, it was really nice. Got drunk with my mom. So splendid
Started transfer applications, had an interview with UPS, because I went up there AGAIN, and got to see another concert that Dylan had. Got my first rejection (from UPS) and just started thinking and re-evaluating everything. I also turned 20 and was able to celebrate with my friends. :) Oh yeah when I went to Tacoma, I flew home on a tuesday and dylan flew back the same day, that was funny.
Finished my fall quarter and passed! Just the typical december, but it was lovely. Got to spend time with Dylan of course, and spend more time with my cousins, it was just a very peaceful month.
Out of happiness there is sadness, and there has been a lot of brokeness in my life and my families life this year, but hopefully next year is even better. Cheers!

this is all over facebook and tumblr but I am so serious about it…
Long distance relationships aren't real relationships.. look at you, you wallow in pictures, it's pathetic.
I was hesitant to respond to this, but, ugh I can’t handle people who say that long distance relationships are illegitimate.
First off, you’re following my blog, I post what I want, and sure I wallow in pictures, and I don’t really care if you deem that as pathetic, but it is my way of looking at the positive things in life. D is so so so important to me, and these pictures just refresh my memories of the good times that we had, are having, and will have together. So I don’t really care if you find it as pathetic, just ignore my posts or unfollow, easy as that.
I beg to differ saying long distance relationships aren’t real. Honestly they are probably as real, if not more than other relationships. Sure D and I have not had the average relationship throughout the time we have been together, but you have no right to say that are relationship isn’t real. We have learned and conquered so much as a couple and friends in the duration of 3 1/2 years that many couples will never face in the span of their relationship. Sure we don’t get to be with each other physically, but really that’s not as important as the communication and trust that we share. I know that sometimes I come here on tumblr to vent out my frustration, because well, our relationship is hard. We are both hard headed people and we have conflict of interests, but that’s what relationships are, two different people who choose to be together. I mean your opinion won’t change, but you honestly have no right to call my relationship not real. I care about him so much, that I can’t take this shit. Besides, we won’t be a long distance couple for a month, and who knows, maybe we’ll be living near each other after he graduates. But all in all I care about him, he cares about me, and I feel that if we are both on the same page of how we feel about each other, then that is a relationship.
