On Death

The single most important person in my life, my grandmother is now with her Creator.

She was my ally. my best friend. my second mother.

She was the epitome of unconditional love.

Everyday I miss her.

It’s been months and the pain is still as raw. I am not okay. I don’t think I will ever be okay. But I will survive. I will get through this. Because you taught me well.

I love you Mommy Rexie. See you on the other side.


i’ve been down …

i’ve been down this road walkin’ the line that’s painted by pride. and i have made mistakes in my life that i just can’t hide.. oh i believe i am ready, for what love has to bring. got myself together, now i’m ready to sing… i’ve been searchin’ my soul tonight.. i know there’s so much more to life. now i know i can shine a light, to find my way back home…

i love this song from Vonda Shepard. I know this is Ally Mcbeal’s theme,  but if there i can choose one theme song for my life, i guess this is it. ❤

Perhaps someday…

Perhaps someday I’ll crawl back home, beaten, defeated. But not as long as I can make stories out of my heartbreak, beauty out of sorrow.

Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Twenty years fr…

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain.

One of my all time favorite quotes!

August Flavor of the Month: Nick Carter

Let me resurrect my flavor of the month thing that i used to do in my old blog. it’s just fun!

My August flavor of the month and the first one in this blog is Nick Carter. i think he deserves to be the first one here since he was my ultimate crush during my pre-teen and teenage years. i dont even know why i’ve never featured him in my old blog before but lemme do it now.


nick carter shirtless


he’s gotten yummier and yummier over the years, if i say so myself. lol 😀 i cant speak for his musicality tho. i have his now or never album but i just dont get rock music that much. i loved him on backstreetboys any day tho!


i dunno what is it about the blonde locks and blue eyes, but when i was younger i used to fall deep and hard for that sort of look. it evolved now tho, but nick still remains my hunky favorite!
