My vacation

Jan. 4th, 2016 | 07:29 pm

A while back I had promised myself that when I finished school I would go on vacation (I didn't know when or where back then) and so I did it! I went to Tampa, Florida for a few days and celebrated the New Year over there with my mom. I had such an amazing time and the weather was perfect! Most of the time we stayed in Tampa it was in the 80s, only the last day that we were leaving which was yesterday did the temperature drop and it rained as well.  I'm still on vacation from work, they say you need a vacation from a vacation and it's so true :P I did so many things, saw so many things and laughed so much!

Some vacation picturesCollapse )

Graduation Day!!!

Oct. 11th, 2015 | 03:16 pm

It's been forever since I last updated this journal but such is life with it's interruptions and busyness :( This year has been busier than most because I'm on the last stretch of school so that means I've been balancing working, doing my internship (yes I have been getting field experience in Counseling) which I have been loving! and having some type of life (which for me is catching up on shows and hanging out every now and then with friends). Yesterday was my graduation ceremony!!! I finally got to walk across the stage and although it was a fake paper they gave us (the real degree will come sometime in December or later) and I know I still have to finish my Internship 2 class at the beginning of December but I'm assuming everything will be fine and that walk across the stage will stand for something because I will have officially gotten my degree in December or later. It's been 3 years in the making and all of my hard work is starting to pay off. I'm so proud of myself.  One step closer towards getting a better job :) I hate my current job and the sooner I can leave that the better!

Okay so here are some picturesCollapse )

It's been forever but I come with goodies!

Aug. 10th, 2014 | 06:53 pm

It has been such a long time since I have updated this journal :/ Life of course gets in the way. Things were pretty boring with me going to school and work and that hasn't changed. I did go on the most amazing cruise last week and I come bearing pictures of all of the places and sights I saw! The cruise lasted from Sunday August 3rd till today (yes I'm fresh out of the boat!). I went to Port Canaveral, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas and Freeport, Bahamas. At Port Canaveral I mostly visited the Kennedy Space Center and I loved it! I'm a sucker for things related to Space. In Nassau I visited the beautiful beach (there were no tidal waves!) where the water was so transparent I could see little fish swimming around me (that kind of freaked me out lol) and I also visited the famous Atlantis resort! My mom and me went to the casino and played some slot machines (mostly she played and I watched lol). We ate something at one of the restaurants in the resort and I was astounded at the amount of food they put on the plate! (I get full really fast so the amount of food was a lot for me).  In Freeport, we (my mom and me) did an excursion that took us to the gardens of the Groves named after the man that developed a lot of the infrastructure of the Bahamas. It was such a beautiful sight to see! I loved all of the things I did on the cruise not just offshore but onboard too... They had shows and musical productions almost every night and the singers and dancers were so talented! It was prohibited to take pictures and record most of the shows which is a shame because they are worth sharing with other people! And the food! Soooo good! I would do another cruise in a heartbeat for sure!

The pictures aren't in any particular order.

Anyways on to the pictures!Collapse )

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Violate, Tate and Violet Picspam

I have a new obsession :D (I blame x_serenade and rachelroberts</lj> ) AHS (American Horror Story) !!!!! This show is so addicting! I love it, it's so twisted and dark. My favorite characters are Tate and Violet and of course I ship them :) Evan Peters gives Tate the depth needed to make him a complex character :) I don't think I would like Tate as much if he were played by anyone else. Taissa Farmiga is really good at playing Violet. There are some very emotional scenes between them that have had me crying a river (the last show that affected me that way was El Internado <3). I highly recommend the show :) Here is a picspam of Violate, Tate and Violet. Sorry that the pictures are so dark but I don't have Photo shop anymore to lighten them up (long story short computer had a virus and I had to restore the hard drive.)

Contains spoilers for those that haven't caught up with the show.

Well yeah, but they are not us. They're lonely. We have each other.Collapse )
