Quite possibly the hardest thing to do is watch my grandpa cry. This is a man who suffered through WWII first hand. Surviving two sunken carriers, a POW camp and the defense of Australia from the nazi/japanese invasion. A man who had what I affectionately call a “white anger”, where it took something very serious for him to become overtly upset and show emotion. I saw my grandpa cry.
I’m experiencing all this with some sort of strange detatchment. Has this ever happened to anyone else with the death of a loved one?
I'll miss you...
My Grandma died this morning and so I’m packing and getting ready to head towards my home town of San Antonio, Texas for the funeral and memorial service. I’ll see you all when I get back. I’ll miss you.

Let them eat...chocolate bunnies?
I’m sorry I’ve been absent lately, I had to finish some of those projects I complained about earlier. It doesnt excuse my behavior any but I had to get some things done and think about things a little more. So, Easter’s tomorrow. I wonder who on here does and doesnt celebrate Easter. I dont, but my parent’s do so… I guess, by default, I do too. My parents are...

A little dilemma...
I really dont know what to do. I’ve been in the process of applying to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) and other design schools for the past several months. All of them require different projects that need to be submitted along with the application and references but I honestly dont have time to work on those projects along with the several I have due for the classes I’m in...

why I love my friends.
me: (not really paying attention)
buddy 1: you're long and thin like a hot dog.
me: (tunes back in) did you just compare me to a penis?
buddy 1: no, I compared you to a hot dog.
buddy 2: what's the difference? they both go in your mouth.
I really should start working on my design portfolio, but…there’s this thing called “procrastination” that I’m currently experiencing. (haha, I’m never going to get anything done…) One more hour and I swear I’ll start working on it. maybe.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do...– Mark Twain tumblina twinkle # 5 (via tumblinas) See, this is why I love Tumblina’s so much. There’s always something to find posted by other women that can make you feel better no matter how bad you’re feeling.
I forgot how painful exercising could be…man, I’m out of shape. Atleast I got off my ass and did something though. It might have only been 20 mins, but hey…I’m feelin the burn.

Lauren Conrad's First Foray into Fashion →
I will be the first to admit that I look up to Lauren Conrad in some twisted “I love clothes and I wish I could have the opportunities she’s had” kind of way. But…I cant say I wasnt expecting this as I’ve been to her online store and seen the cute, but un-original, clothes she’s designed. Although this was her first “BIG” line and maybe her next will...

A How to for Woman’s Masturbation →
Well, its comforting to know that we’ve got a How-To guide. Atleast it’s not a Female Masturbation For Dummies. Although, I’m sure there’s one of those out there.
woo, thank god that's over with.
I was the only one in my project group that got the full 100% regardless of the lisp. Which was awkward but so funny, even I had to laugh at myself. My professor said that it was the fact that I could laugh at myself that got me the 100%. That he wasnt looking for a stuffy, uptight presesntation, but something fun and light and I brought that today. So, needless to say I was pretty excited…...
Group 1 Crew- Forgive Me
today already sucks, but no more. I refuse to keep on having bad days. I’m sick of being stressed out, tired, upset, and sad. No more.
