- Already Home by A Great Big World.

❥Movies watched in July:
- The Purge: Anarchy (This movie was SOOO good! It is so much better than the first one, I highly recommend it. It is not scary AT ALL).
- Non-Stop (This one was eh).
❥Favorite TV shows:
- Teen Wolf (This season is absolutely phenomenal).
- Big Brother (This show is so addicting).

Well, that is it for my monthly recap. I only work two weeks in August work then we move to weekends. I can’t believe how fast this season is going. In a way I’m excited for August because it’s my senior year and I know it’s going to be the best year yet. I can’t wait to see what new adventures August will bring, so August please be good to me!
I am currently working on two new vegan recipes that should be up sometime this week! I hope everybody is having a great day/night so far, thank you so much for reading and I will talk to you all very soon!
Hello my tumblr friends! Happy Sunday! Sorry this post is up so late :( I really wanted to get this up a lot sooner, but I haven’t had the time to work on it. But basically my friends and I went on our first road-trip together. On Friday, my friends (Tiff & Alexis) and I drove an hour and a half to Fort Collins, Co. We signed up for a campus tour of Colorado State University, and since none of our parents were able to take us, I volunteered to drive us all there.
Here is our timeline:
- Our campus tour began at 9am and since it takes an hour and a half to get there we left the house at about 7:15. The drive wasn’t bad at all, we pretty much took the highway all the way there.
-We got to the university around 8:30ish and ended up being 10 minutes late because none of us knew where we were going.
- We finished our campus tour around 11 in the afternoon and afterwards my friends and I drove 5 minutes to downtown Fort Collins for lunch.
- We ate lunch at this pizza place called Beaujos, Tiffany & Alexis shared a pizza while I had a big bowl of salad.
- Before heading home we stopped to get some cupcakes at this cupcake bakery called ”Butter Cream Cupcakery.”
- We said goodbye to Fort Collins at around 12:30, then it was time for us to drive back home.
- The ride home was probably the best part of the entire thing because all of us were all awake so we were kinda hyper. We hit some pretty bad traffic so we spent the entire time catching up.
- We got home at around 3 and immediately Alexis had to leave for work while Tiffany chilled at my house.
Overall, my first road trip was a complete success! It was really cool seeing the scenery transition from the city to the country side in the matter of minutes. After touring CSU I can honestly say I’m 100% sure which college I’m going to go to, and its not CSU. Eventhough, CSU had a great campus and life seems great there. For some reason, I didn’t feel like CSU was the college for me. I am so glad I went on this trip because not only did it give me a sense of clarity, but I was able to see my friends again after a long break.
Alright this next topic is completely random, but I’m thinking about going vegan. I’ve been watching a ton of different youtubers who are vegan for the past week now and this lifestyle seems really great. I mean I’m already a vegetarian so this transition wouldn’t be too hard for me. I think my main concern are my parents. I don’t know what they are going to think about this because they were just starting to be okay with me being a vegetarian. My plan is to try it out for a week (starting tomorrow) then decide whether or not I want to stick to it. If any of you guys are vegan and that is reading this then please help me! I would appreciate any tips on staying vegan and getting your parents to be okay with this lifestyle!
Thank you to anyone who read this entire thing, I hope you guys are having a wonderful day or night and I will talk to you guys all very soon! :)
Hello friends, happy Tuesday ^___^
I’m so sorry for the lack of blogs lately, I just got back from my summer roadtrip to Grand Lake, Colorado. I was out of town for about four days. I left the house on Friday afternoon and just got back yesterday morning. This post is going to be a recap of my entire trip, so I hope you guys enjoy!
Friday, July 18th - The majority of today was spent in the car. After my stepdad got home from work, which was around 4 we packed everything onto my stepdad’s truck and left for our two hour road trip. It was me, my sister, my stepdad, my cousin, and my dog. My mom didn’t want to go because she “hates” camping. We arrived at Grand Lake around 9 o’clock because of the
terrible traffic. Once we arrived we checked into our cabin then it was time to go and get some food because all of us were pretty hungry. We ended up eating pizza because all of the restaurants were close at this time.
Saturday, July 19th -
Saturday was a pretty chill day for us, we woke up around 8 o’clock and attended this pancake breakfast downtown then we hung out at a park nearby. Afterwards, we put on our swimsuits and headed to the lake. Since the water was freezing cold, I ended up not swimming, but instead we rented a paddleboat. My cousin and I paddled while my sister sat in the back. We did that for about an hour, then my cousin and I went to get lunch while everybody else stayed at the lake. After getting lunch we went to get some ice cream at this adorable ice cream shop called Polly’s. I didn’t feel like eating ice cream so instead I got a slushy! My cousin and I wanted to go in the hot tub so we did while my sister, my stepdad, and my dog took a nap. For dinner we went to this restaurant called EG’s the food was absolutely delicious! Not to mention the waiter was cutie pie and that concluded day 1 of our trip!
Sunday, July 20th -
I absolutely loved loved today, in the morning my cousin, my step-dad, and I went on a beautiful hike. The trail that we went on didn’t allow dogs, so my sister had to stay back to watch Bear. We hiked up to a water fall called “Adam falls” and took some amazing photos. Throughout the hike, I got to see some pretty incredible sceneries! Afterwards we went back to our cabin to shower and get ready for lunch. We ate at this cafe called Blue Waters and since there was a parade today we stayed and watch for a while. Then, we just hung out around downtown. After our long morning, we went back to our cabin to rest and waited until it was dinner time. For our last dinner we ate at this bbq and grill type of restaurant, I forgot what it was called but the food was so good! We ended our night with a bonfire and whats a bonfire without s’mores?! We also had to pack because we were leaving first thing in the morning.
Monday was spent driving home. I was very happy to finally see my mom again! Overall, I had a great trip and it’s all thanks to my wonderful stepdad ! Without him none of this would’ve been possible! I am not ready to go back to reality, but I’m so glad I got to take a break for a little while.
Anyways, I can’t believe July is almost over…wow…I hope you guys are all doing well! Thank you so much for reading! To see all of my pictures from the trip please go and check out my flickr page!

Hello friends! This post is a little bit late, but I hope everyone had a great fourth of July! I spent the entire day with my family. First, we went to a field of sunflowers and wheats to take my senior pictures (huge shoutout to my stepdad for taking these pictures because he did such a wonderful job) I seriously love every single one of these pictures and it’s going to be so hard choosing just one. Afterwards we went out to eat then we went to the park to watch fireworks! I’ve never actually realized how much I miss seeing the fireworks until this year and I can’t wait to see them again! :)
I will be posting all of my pictures from my photoshoot to my flickr, so if you’re interested in seeing them please go check out my flickr (Click here).
Anyways, I know this post was short, but I wanted to do a quick update. Thank you so much for reading and I will talk to you guys all very soon!

Hello my tumblr friends! Happy Sunday ^___^
I had a wonderful wonderful weekend! I spent all of Saturday hanging out with my friends because it was Tiffany’s birthday (she turned 17). We went to Water World, Country Buffet, then back to Tiff’s house.
Here’s the timeline:
10:30am - I picked up friends from Tiffany’s house and our first stop was Starbucks!
11:00am-4:30pm - We spent 5ish hours at Water World! It was SERIOUSLY SO MUCH FUN! My friends and I rode the majority of the rides and we even got stuck on one too (that was THE highlight of my day). What happened was we were riding this ride called Revolution its one of those toilet bowl ride and everybody has to be in a tube (which sits 4 people). When we got in the bowl we saw that another group was stuck in there for gosh knows how long! While I was panicking my friends Helen and Alexis tried to push their tube down, but we ended up getting stuck too! In that moment, I instantly went into lifeguard mode and started to freak out a little bit…It was pretty funny…Luckily, a third group came down and helped push our tubes and we were able to make it down all in one piece :)
5-6:30pm - After Water World it was time for dinner! We went to Country Buffet and omg their food is SOO good! I love their desserts excluded the “frozen yogurt” :D Oh! During this time we also met up with our friend Mikhal, she wasn’t able to make it to Water World, but she did come to the buffet!
7-9:30pm - Our last stop was Tiffany’s house! We all gave Tiffany her birthday present (I bought her a purse) and after that we went on OMEGLE! It was so funny because we had Tiffany pretended to be the grudge and stand in front of the webcame lol. T b h not a lot of people were as spooked out as we thought they would be but hey! It was still pretty funny!!!!
Yup, that was my Saturday! I didn’t do much today besides work lol. I’m so excited for this upcoming week because I have a lot of days off and I’m heading into week 4 of my running with Helen which means we’re FINALLY half way AHHH ! But I hope you guys are all doing well! Thank you so much for reading and I will talk to you guys all very soon!
Hello friends, happy Friday the 13th!
Today was finally my day off! I’ve worked this whole entire week and I definitely needed this! I started my day with a run with my friend Helen and our runs are starting to get a lot harder! After running I was planning on taking pictures with my friends, but I ended up hanging out with my cousin Ana. We had a great day! We went to Chipotle for lunch then we did a mini photoshoot at the park. After the photoshoot we went to Yogurtland and Lollicup (A boba smoothie place). It felt so relaxing to finally sleep in and enjoy my day off with my friends and family! Anyways, here are some of the pictures that we took today!

Hello friends, happy Saturday!
Initially I had work today, but since there were too many extra lifeguards I got sent home early. This week has been so hectic, on Monday I passed my deep guard test whoot whoot! Being a deep guard means I get to guard the bigger pools and jump in to save people yay…I also started running this week. My friend Helen and I are trying to run a 5k by the end of the summer, so our plan is to run every morning on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. So far we only ran on Wednesday and Friday and it was so much fun! We’re using this app called 5k runner and it’s a 8-week training program that will help us run the 3 miles! I really hope Helen and I can finish this and stay motivated! Other then running, work has been fun. To be honest, I really like being a lifeguard it is so much better than photo! Now that I’m a deep guard, I get to teach little kids how to swim! I can’t wait!
Alright so, my ACT scores came in yesterday. *sigh* I did absolutely horrible. I honestly thought I did a lot better, but man my score was so low. I didn’t expect it at all. I still don’t know whether or not I should retake it because my index score for the college I want to go to is really good. As of right now I don’t think I’m going to retake it, but we’ll see. It just really sucks :/ I don’t know what to do. I feel like if I retake it my score might not improve…*sigh*
OK Finally! I got a new lens! YAYAYAYAY! I bought the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens and I’m loving it so far. I just bought it today and I can’t get enough of it! I’m planning on taking my senior picture with this lens and I can’t be any more satisfied! I love this lens so much! I highly recommend it.
That is all for today! I hope you guys are doing great, thank you so much for reading and I will talk to you guys soon!
