Yes, this year my family and I started the 4th all decked out in red, white and blue in Lambert airport. At 4 a.m., I was going through security to get on a plane to go to Mexico. Now, it wasn’t just a normal family vacation. My cousin was getting married. It was a week-long family vacation.

The resort we stayed at was all-inclusive. So, we had all the food and… alcohol we wanted. My family took full advantage of that. I had a lot of first experiences while I was there. I went Kayaking, which I was super nervous about at first. I’m glad I did it though, it was so much fun! I highly recommend it! I saw MJ for the first time. Not really, it was a Micheal Jackson impersonator. I had some Salmon and Lobster. I found out that I love salmon, and hate lobster. It was also my first time swimming in an ocean…with sting rays! No, it wasn’t an excursion. At first I was freaked out but I got use to them. Most importantly this was my first time seeing my cousin getting married and it was beautiful. I am so happy for him and his new wife.

Between all the shenanigans I made some new friends! Iguanas roamed around the resort. I saw at least 10 a day. Possibly could be the same ones but it is still a lot. We had a waiter throughout the whole week named Lorenzo and he was the sweetest. He went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied. He said he only makes $4 a day, so we made sure to tip him well because he deserves it, while he is trying to look for work in America. Within a year he will be able too, and I hope the best for him!

Love

LOVE isn’t solely for Valentine’s Day. Love is patient and love is kind. Love is for all. You might even think of Nat King Cole’s “Love” or Haddaway’s “What Is Love.”

…Baby, don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me no more.

Honestly, I think love is so overrated. People give love way too many definitions. Love is an indefinite feeling! No boundaries. Zero. Zilch. Why would we strip someone of the opportunity to feel something really genuine? All I’m saying is, THIS WORLD NEEDS MORE OF THE X’s and O’s. No questions asked.

Love can be anything as simple as loving a certain food, color, or loving life simply because you were given the Heavenly chance to have one! I believe that love stems from gratitude — if you cannot be grateful for all that you have been given, the people in your life, or what is to come, what is there to love?

That is just my opinion. Agree, disagree, or agree with a difference…I will still love what everyone else’s opinions are as well!

Ta, ta for now!
xoxo

As you all are aware, Valentines day is coming up. Take time to show anyone of importance how much you love them. Rather it is by spending time with them, giving a hug, or even a smile. Love is not shown in how much money you can spend on that person, it is simply shown by your geniune actions. This Valentines day will be something special for me and hopefully you too. Even a hand made card can say alot to your loved one. Don’t be afraid to branch out and love.

A Love Letter to Chemistry.

by Alumni Posts February 14, 2014

On Monday I had the pleasure of turning my hands blue (Okay, this is totally an exaggeration, but still.). Also on Monday, I had the real pleasure of calculating my engineering physics grade after receiving my very first graded physics exam. Then Wednesday I spent 3 hours with the engineering physics tutor, before going to […]

Valentine’s Day

by Kristen February 12, 2014

As you all probably know by now, Valentine’s Day is this Friday.  For many people, Valentine’s Day is a chance to show loved ones you are thinking about them.  For others, Valentine’s Day is a bitter reminder that they have no one to share the special day with.  For me, the end of Valentine’s Day […]
