5 dias!

I had to get my liscense renewed today. And this isnt what I wore. I wore a green sweater, because I look best in green and this time, I wanted a semi-decent picture on my liscense.

I wish my boyfriend dressed like this:
instead of this (why he is posing like that, and why he has a bottle of Johnny Walker in his pocket, I do not know):but I love him anyways.

If it wasnt so cold today, and if I had somewhere to go, I would've worn this today. But maybe without the tights.

brrr....Its freezing here. I just ventured out to the grocery store, but I had to get out of the house. I was going stir crazy!
sweater dress: my grandma gave it to me
vest: zara

my face looks awful in these pics.
Ok, so my friend Danny tagged me to do this thing on facebook, but I'm going to do it here instead. I figure it will help people get to know me a little better, since I'm no good at doing "about me's." So 25 random facts about moi:

  1. I currently have no job and I'm not in school. I have been visiting my mom in the States for about 4 months, and she recently moved to a new state, where I know no one. So I dont get out of the house much. The pictures I take for my blog are merely that. Pictures for a blog. All dresses up tih nowhere to go.
  2. In Mexico, I earn my living by tutoring 6 Korean children. I teach them English and Spanish. Yes, I teach them English. In Mexico. Their parents own this huge sock factory in Mexico, and the kids came over without knowing a word of Spanish or English. It was very hard to communicate at first.
  3. I am constantly on a diet.
  4. I go to the gym twice a day.
  5. What I want more than anything in the world is to live in Ireland.
  6. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother, all of which are half-siblings.
  7. My favorite music is probably Spanish pop. but i also love 80s music and the Brazilan band NX zero.
  8. I am paranoid about missing flights. Seriously, weeks before I go on a trip, I have nightmares that I miss my flight.
  9. I want to open a bakery.
  10. I am learning to knit.
  11. My new favorite movie is Sabrina.
  12. I have social anxiety.
  13. My boyfriend is a business consultant, and he just opened his first pharmacy. (opening a pharmacy in Mexico is quite a bit easier than in the rest of the world, but nevertheless, I am so proud of him.)
  14. Since I moved to Mexico in August 2006, I have lived in 3 different cities...Guadalajara, Acapulco, and Pachuca.
  15. I did not get an MP3 player until 4 months ago.
  16. I am learning Gaelic and Italian. Italian comes pretty easliy, because I know Spanish, but Gaelic is in a league of its own.
  17. I cannot stand Angelina Jolie.
  18. If I had a million bucks...I would visit every country in the world.
  19. As of today, I have stopped biting my nails.
  20. My favorite food is grapes.
  21. I am always, I mean always, cold. It can be 85 degrees but if there's even the slightest breeze, I have to wear a jacket.
  22. I am naturally a blonde.
  23. I take clothes from my 8 year old and 12 year old sisters.
  24. Im so over living in Mexico, and I'm ready to move on to the next country.
  25. I love to read.

For those of you who have ever watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, this is who I felt like this morning:

No, seriously. I saw this DIY tutorial on how to recreate the Alexander Wang shredded shorts on the lovely Shini's blog a couple days ago, and seeing as I have no money to my name at the moment to buy a pair of shorts, I've been trying to decide which pair of jeans to try it out on. Last night I finally decided on a pair of old blackish/greyish levis, and this morning I woke up so anxious to start. Like really anxious. As in, I didnt even check my facebook before getting out of bed and going to the kitchen for a box cutter to begin this.

I cut my hands up a bit in the process, (and my bed sheet. yes, I did this on a peice of cardboard on my bed.) I didnt use chains, partly because I have no chains (or eyelets for that matter), and partly because I didnt think they needed chains. I like how they turned out, now I've just got to come up with outfits.

all done...

I hate not ever having anything witty to say. I really do. I used to be a writer, a great one, they told me. I remember when I was little I always wanted to be an author. I guess I just lost my passion for it.

I love this little man.

My face is not in these because it looks just plain awful today. I bought a pair of pantyhose for a dollar at walmart, because I like how Alexander Wang used them, and I figured, "well these will last me a few wears before they get runs, but then when they do get runs it will be ok because that's what i kind of want anyways." well, I was pulling them on and they got this huge run down one leg. But oh well, thats what you get for a dollar.

por fin! por fin! por fin! Finally!!! After three long months of not seeing eachother my boyfriend has purchased his ticket to come see me! He arrives 10 February!!! I'm ecstatic.

These pics are from August 2008 at a night club in Acapulco, Mexico, where we lived for a time:

We started out nicely.
Then things went downhill:
