UPDATE! I'm still alive :)

Hello! It has been yet again too long since I've given sometime to myself and just write about anything. I have been extremely busy lately :( I have NOT yet once been able to sit back and relax. I haven't even been able to watch television like I usually do :( Oh how I miss the Food Network and my reality t.v... (Don't judge me and my guilty pleasures LOL) Let's get updating!! A while back, I told you about a break up, and whether or not "exes" can still be friends or be shut out of your life for all ETERNITY! (lol) My ex and I have decided to become friends. Its because honestly we are much better friends than girlfriend and boyfriend. We love each other and our friendship is just  too valuable to throw away. Being "just friends"actually helps us get to know more about each other. It's sad  to say this but I think I know him a lot more now than when we were dating :( (THinking about it now .. makes me realize what a terrible girlfriend I've probably been) Being friends also lessens the arguing for some wonderful reason. When we were together, we would ALWAYS argue. Now not so much. I feel like we actually listen to one another now. So its a positive thing :) kinda sad.. since we weren't like that in the beginning :( But yeah all is good. Some, especially my family and friends (my side, lol) they still don't understand how any of this is possible, They believe one of us is BOUND to get hurt. :( I hope not , since me and my "friend" talked about it and all is good for now.

Umm, I finally received "full time" at the preschool I'm working at so yay! 30 hours a week :) a teeny tiny raise :( but I get benefits! So that's cool :) I still tutor and will be tutoring the whole summer too. BUt you know, need the money gotta do my part to help the family :) .

I'm gonna try no to over think posting on my blog and use it to the best of what its made for ...ANYTHING. I think I've been over thinking this blog and forgot what it was all about when I made it. It was all about me just writing my thoughts and troubles to feel better, to share with others that it may help or others that just love to read :) BTW thank you to all of my followers AGAIN! It means so much when i get comments or views. Its such a happy feeling to know that someone out there is reading, Actually taking some time out of their day read what I wrote :)

I'm making this post too long aren't I ? Lol okay I'll try to write a little everyday to keep you updated. A little preview, there's a guy I kinda like, and I have a group trip to Zion National Park soon! Shall keep you updated! Until tomorrow... Bye! :)

And your name shall be ...

Hi lovely followers of mine :) Thank you for spending some of your time to read this blog of each week :) really appreciate it! I'm sorry that this week ... I wont be posting an OOTD ... its been awhile I know ... but soon! Hopefully in 2 weeks ... >< Spring outfit may be coming your way! May I first say ... SPRING IS HERE YAY! lol Im so excited to wear floral prints and  COLORS! lol ANYWAYS :P My curiosity this week goes towards baby names. have you ever wondered where all these different names come from? Or how parents think of them and how they know that that would be the perfect name for their baby?/babies?  I think everyone has some sort of story am I right? On how  you got your name. :D So I use to be a substitute for elementary school and I meet different students everyday, different amazing little ones with unique names that always makes me wonder ... during this year how do parents come up with these names? Some names I've encountered were just ... well ... really interesting ... and I mean REALLY REALLY interesting. Sometimes I'm just like ... "what?? why??" but anyways this question came to be after being in a couple of classes during the start of school ... September. I met the sweetest little kiddies and their names  made me go like this >>>>  "o_o"

So there's this little girl, the sweetest thing ever! And her name was Lexus. Which is a pretty interesting, Unique name for a unique little girl :) But then I met her sisters . She had two older sisters ... one in I believe 5th grade and the other in middle school. But her 5th grade sister was name Porcha and her older sister name was .... Mercedes ...These are all great names but it was just odd to me to somehow assume that there was a ... "theme" on how to name their three daughters. I don't know how I felt about it lol. And another girl whose name was Sapphire and her sisters also had mineral/jewel names... Diamond, Ruby... you get the jist. I just wonder what the story behind it was. It must be really interesting you know? There was one time I took a job at a middle school for 7th graders... not my cup of tea as a grade I wanted to teach but I a very sweet boy there and his name was "Billgates" Literally . It was written like that on the roster. Of course because hes older the others students just called him "Bill" but I was extremely interested on how he got his name. It was amazing I feel like it would have been truly an interesting story if  I ever asked his parents.

How I got my name was actually with the help of my dad. :) Both my mom and dad were undecisive because they had two names ready for me and didn't know which to pick while my mom was in labor. My mom always tells me that she wanted to name me "Silvia" because of her friend/co-worker who was super sweet and took care of my mom during her times in that company. She made my mom feel like her little sister and my mom became great friends with her that she thought such a great person and wanted her daughter (ME! ^^) to be just like that. However, my dad really liked the name "Michelle" because the song by the Beatles and how it had a great "ring" to it. They became very VERY indecisive at this point because they wanted to come up with a compromise. But what can you do at this point? Take the two names and smash them together to form an EVEN COOLER NAME!!?? lol Thank goodness they didn't do that. They decided to wait and choose the name that best suited me when I ... was hatched??! :) okay so when I was born I was nameless for maybe 30 minutes or so ...  they looked at me and wondered ... and i guess at that point "Michelle" was the right choice :) but! that wasn't the end! They told the nurse and as she was about to write down my name ... she looked up at my parents and asked ... would you like that with two Ls or one? My mom got to choose (that was the compromise I guess lol) and she said "One L... it will make it a lot easier for her to write ... less letters :)" which didn't really help because "MICHELLE" was the most common so my name was always written incorrectly or sometimes pronounced incorrectly ... (sometimes mistaken for the suave boys name Michele ... or Michael if you will :P)

Its a bummer not to have like merchandise that has your name on it because of its "uniqueness" but I don't regret receiving this name from my parents :). I feel like parents have great stories or good reason to have you be given the name you have. Don't think that I'm judging them because of their name! Everyone is unique in their own way whether it was a name given to them at birth or what you changed it to. Everything has a reason and we make it perfect by being who we are :

So my question is what's your name? And how did you receive it? :)
Whats the story? I would love to hear it  n_n <3

Thank you for reading~
Till next time!

Lazy Gloom OOTD

Hello my lovelies! <3
So here is my SUNDAY outfit of the day! I was lazy and the weather is super gloomy. If the forecast is correct, we should be expecting rain anytime now :) Rain is so nice ESPECIALLY when you don't have to work because you can just stay in. I love staying in when its rainy, the atmosphere is "just right" like baby bear always says!

Anyways, on me is a gray long dress (with 3/4 long sleeves) that is probably a few inches from my knees. I paired this dress with a tribal cardigan that I got at a thrift store (SCORE!) its super relaxed and comfy with a touch of color/patterns which I LOVE.The bag also from Forever21!  And then for shoes, I chose black combat-like boots I got from Forever21 which have been surprisingly very comfortable to walk around in. They are my go to shoes for the fall/winter season lately and has been doing justice :)

Hair is in a messy like side bun and hoop earrings to make the outfit look put together for an outing.

Thanks for dropping by! <3

New Year = An Even Better YOU!

HELLO my LOVELY followers :) Again I just want to say thank you so much for following and reading my nonsense :) I really do appreciate that my rants, thoughts and comments entertain you in some way :P You have been such a great ear to lean on when I need to just let something out :) Anyways!! This year has been a great change for me. I mean this in a good way! Everything is changing and I'm actually learning how to be an adult. Though I have been an adult  for a while now...LOL its still a big change for myself. Let's just say I've been sheltered for way too long and been kept inside like a hermit where I only knew of studying and video games LOL but now its different. Different in a good way. For the new start, I got a job that pertains to my major :) even though its a lot of work, my job gives me such satisfaction <3 I also cut my hair! was able to cut at least 8 inches to donate to charity :) organize my time so that I can hang out with the people who is most important to me AND!! find myself :D I just have to keep telling myself that its gonna be okay. Everything will be okay.
