If I had 3 wishes,
I’d wish for 3 things to work out.
I’d wish for smooth sailing, or rather driving, to pass my road test.
I’d wish for peace and tranquility within me throughout this process of preparing for my internship.
I’d wish for the same serenity for getting back to the groove of school and new commitments.
p.s. My brother asked me before we went to bed on Monday if I had 3 wishes what I’d wish for. Above are the wishes I shared with him. Here’s to wishing!
is the time you think differently
open up your mind to the possibilities
and seek for something within the depths of you
without even knowing possible
it’s the reflection process
that keeps on reflecting
and each time you think,
you reach toward
a much more refined brink
p.s. My sister talked to my mom and I today about opening up her field of work to explore culinary arts and not just her passion in pastry arts. So, here’s to junior year! Can’t believe my sis and I are juniors-her in high school, and me in college. How did that happen?
- Think about the words surrounding the main word without saying any of the ‘taboo’ words
- Flip through the cards quickly, while keeping a keen eye on the pink sandy timer, being careful not to drop any cards on the floor
- Have a blast while going through the cards in a blast
p.s. I think Taboo has to be my favorite party game ever. I love words and this game makes you think carefully about what words you need to use. Yesterday I played a game with my parents and cousins and we had a blast. So here are rules you need to know before delving in!
when the lights that twinkle are stars
and the lights that don’t are planets.
in this wild universe
is the sky that cries thunder
is the sky that shares anger
with the rest of earth
is the sky.
as it is home to other stellar matter
and a wholesome gift to creatures,

p.s. On Friday I covered an event at work regarding space and science week. Here, I was able to watch the sky transform through telescopes and a bird’s eye view. It was the best day I’ve ever had at work. Ever. Here’s to the sky!
Going somewhere you don’t want to go to make your parents happy. Doing laundry and cleaning the home to make your parents happy. Hanging with your siblings and really hyper cousins to make your parents happy. #itswhatwedo
p.s. On Thursday I watched a very early episode of That 70’s Show. Here, one of the main characters wore a star-patterned jumpsuit to match her parents, which created the American Flag. She didn’t want to wear it, but supporting the cause and her parents made her parents happy. And gave them all an unforgettable experience. Here’s to what we do for our parents as they do for us kids!
a battle between working a lot
and being bored by working too little
a battle between working too little
and yet, being exhausted by standing all day doing nothing
a battle between hanging out with friends, family, mentors, special someones, and everyone
a battle between being an adult under a roof
and an adult under a dorm,
a different type of territory
a battle battle between wanting to stay home
and wanting to go back to school
A ‘College’ Summer
p.s. On Wednesday I worked at Morningside Center. They call me as needed, and thankfully I was available. Even though I was tired from jury duty two days prior, sheer exhaustion is a part of growing up. Here’s to a ‘College’ summer! What’s yours like?
Make the most of the 3 weeks ’til summer is over. Hit up Empire State Experience. Do Karaoke. Meet up with a friend. Go to the Beach. Jump in the pool. Visit my family. Have a dance party. Work a couple of more shifts. Purchase what is needed. Pack up the essentials. Pass my road test.
p.s. I hope I can make all this happen. Here’s to what August may bring!
Bring stuff to do. Read a book. Sort through your emails. Reach out to people you haven’t in a while. Catch up on your favorite shows. Write out things you need to on your phone and send them out later. Bring a charger. Listen up. Do your best not to slump in your chair and fall asleep. Hope to get the case if you want a case. Hope to get dismissed if you rather work at your day job.
p.s. Yesterday I went in for Day 1 of Jury Duty. Above are some tips to not be bored out of your mind. Here’s to civic duties! Or in my case, waiting to be or not to be part of civic duties!
Our favorite indulgence: buttery biscuits
Our favorite drinks: strawberry lemonades
Our favorite topic: future plans, near or far
Our favorite game: guessing the damage, the bill
p.s. On Sunday, Joseph and I went to Red Lobster after work. We had a good time catching up apart from work. Here’s to ‘Red Lobster Rules!’
hot saunas, hot tubs, hot, heated tubs #mykindofSaturday
p.s. I had a wonderful day catching up with my cousins at Spa Castle today. It was a much needed hydrotherapy together. Here’s to mis primas!
