Spring Break

It’s that time of year again – spring break.  That time where all of the college kids forget what school and responsibilities are and adventure off somewhere new.  This spring break my place of choice was California.  I love the beach and the vibe in California so I went and visited a friend.

IMG_0011.JPGI drove from Las Vegas to Camarillo, CA on Sunday and it took me the longest time to get there.  It normally is only a 4-5 hour drive… and it took me 8 hours to get there.  8 HOURS!!  It was the worst and I was all alone the whole time.  Never again aha.

When I arrived I more or less just went to sleep because it was 11:30 at night.

Monday, I went to Panera Bread and got a pitaya bowl.  It was a pretty relaxed day considering my friend had school.

Tuesday, we went to Good and Healthy, then drove out to Santa Barbara.  We spent the afternoon walking down State st. and peeking throughout all of the cute shops.  Then we stopped on the beach for a little photo shoot.

Then we drove home. It was such a relaxed, chill day that it really just made me realize how much I can’t wait for summer!

Finally, the last day arrived and it was seriously tragic.  I was so so sad that I wasn’t able to stay a little longer.  But on the bright side… I got my belly button pierced!

The rest of break I just spent my time at home or at work… so what I do typically.

Sunday was Easter and so I had dinner at my grandparents house here in town and then went to my sister’s house for a little while to play board games with her friends.

What did you do over spring break?

University STRUGGLES

Literally, the struggle is REAL….

I am just starting university and OH MY GOODNESS I am stressed. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and currently go to the University here. Can I just say it’s more than I ever dreamed it would be?

It’s only my second day and a few disasters have happened but overall, I am having a good time. But obviously all you want to hear about is the bad stuff am I right? Of course I am.

So first off, I was almost late to my first class! The parking lot was so full that it took me 20 minutes to find a parking spot, and it ended up being in the WAY BACK of the lot. I then had to walk from my car, across the campus, to get to my class. I had 15 minutes. I had to hurry. I made it, don’t worry, but after that class I had a short 30 minute break so I decided to stop off in the library to grab a cup of coffee – my second mistake. When I swung my backpack off one shoulder to just quickly reach in my bag for my wallet the strap that I still had on SNAPPED OFF!! I don’t know how it happened, it wasn’t like it was an old backpack, it literally was a BRAND NEW BACKPACK. But I had to get to class so I didn’t have time to go put the broken backpack in my car and make it back in time, so I carried a broken backpack to my second class ever at uni. Finally the class finished and I made the long trek to my car and swapped my backpack for my purse and just carried my materials, but when I locked my car I heard a male voice say “hey”. IT WAS A 40+ YEAR OLD MAN!!!! I awkwardly said “hi” back and started to walk away very quickly as he proceeded to go “you’re cute” and I was then panicked, said “THATS NICE” and walked away as quick as possible.

I decided on my way back into campus I would chill in the library until my friend Hanna got out of class, when on my way I head many protestors. Or preachers. I don’t know which you would call them. They were yelling about how no one should bother going to church because Jesus isn’t there and all this other baloney and it was very weird. I sat in the library and realized by this point I was quite hot and sweaty considering Las Vegas is around 110 degrees when it’s summer and after noon. So I became very self conscious about smelling bad so I sprayed a little spritz of perfume under my armpits just in case and then the guy at the table across from me made a face and got up and left the floor of the library. Personally, I think my perfume smells good but I made him RUN AWAY.

Needless to say my day was VERY INTERESTING and I now just sit in the very back of the library away from everyone because I don’t want to annoy people with my WONDERFUL SMELLING PERFUME.

Break Over!

I’ve just returned from Washington, and boy oh boy was it beautiful! I am so excited to share everything I did!

First things first is the flight!

I love flying (as you may have read in my post Traveling!) and I was so happy to fly to Washington for my visit with my family! When I arrived, I walked straight off the plane down to the baggage claim and lucky me my bag was right there on the carousel waiting for me! Then I proceeded to my grandma’s house to hang out and relax for the day.

While we were there, my grandma insisted on bringing me shopping which, obviously, I would never pass up! IMG_2354These are the things I bought! All of the shirts are from PacSun, but the shoes are from Famous Footwear (I think).  Anyways, I bought a white shirt with a red collar that has a cute pup on the front and says “snap me” in cursive above the dog (snapchat is tasianicolec).  I also got a grey shirt with a  maroon collar which reads “too cute to care” in cursive! Also, there is a grey long sleeved top that cuts down the front in a low V with strings across, and then also a black and white stripped dress.  My grandma also insisted on buying me a pair of Adidas, black and white and they are so super comfy!

So the next day we just stayed around the house and then went to Olive Garden for a late lunch, but then the next day I hung out with my cousin and we had dinner at my grandmas and I met his lovely girlfriend Meghan.

Finally, on Friday I hung out with my cousin David and Meghan all afternoon/evening.  We went to a park and we were pokemon hunting (pokemon go is an awesome game, might I add) and then we went to the roller skating rink and we hung out with a few more of David’s friends from his school.

Saturday I sat around the house bored, until my grandma decided that I needed to get a new purse so we left the house and went shopping again!IMG_2370I got a black Michael Kors purse which was quite expensive but it is so cute and simple and I love it so so much.

Finally, Sunday came and it was time for my cousin’s party! We hung around by the pool and ate lots of food.  The party was very fun and I was so happy to have gotten to see him before he left and also I really loved meeting Meghan and her sister Ellie (who is her twin).

IMG_2393After the party I went back to my grandma’s house and had quite the dilemma with 2 spiders in the room I was staying in, so I decided I was going to sleep in the living room for the night!  Overall, the trip was so so amazing and I am so grateful I got to go on it!

Monday morning I woke up at 5am to catch my flight back to Vegas, and I was sitting next to a guy who oddly smelt like Ritz crackers… I know, weird.  On the flight I wrote 18 pages of a story that I have been avidly writing for my friend Rachael, and I was very productive! When I stepped off the plane it felt as though it was a hot hair dryer outside considering I had just come from 70 degree weather and it was 105 degrees when I arrived home.  Yay for living in the desert… 😦

Traveling!

This is going to be quite a short post on account I have been on a plane for 2 hours and really just need some fresh air BUT I wanted to post something for you all because I appreciate your time in reading and commenting, so thank you for following my blog! x

Anyways,

Wow, I love to travel.  I love the feel of airports and I just recently went on a cruise for the first time (see Hey Guys! if you haven’t heard about it) and to be honest, going to different places makes me so happy.

I just arrived in Seattle, Washington about an hour ago and I am so excited for my stay here! I am currently visiting with my grandma and later tonight I am going to go hang out with my cousin who is, thankfully, the same age as me! So we are probably going to do something fun and I am so excited.

My favorite part of traveling is probably the moment before you actually go there.  Like, for example, when you’re sitting at the airport waiting for your plane to board and you just have that down time to do whatever, I LOVE that so much.  What is your favorite part of traveling?  Comment below!

One bad side about traveling (today) was on my plane here, there was a screaming child sitting right behind me and they were not happy AT ALL.  They didn’t stop crying until around 15 minutes before the plane landed and then the second we landed, they were crying again.  Luckily for me, I have noise canceling headphones so I just watched the movie Hairspray on my laptop and ignored the loud crying behind me.

What is your worst experience traveling? Where is your favorite place to go? Comment below!  I love going to California and Washington the most (in the US) and I am so excited to go to Europe next summer, it is going to be AMAZING.

Thank you guys for reading xx

Fall is Here

Guess what? Fall is here! Grab your coats and sweaters and let’s get cozy with blankets and tea. It’s almost winter at this moment I know I’m late but regardless I have a love/hate relationship with fall. It’s very cold and windy most of the time but also sunny and hot another part of the time.  Some people get allergies (like me) and the leaves turn beautiful and at some point as the season goes on, fall off.  Fall is a beautiful season and I love it so much but hate allergies.   After fall comes winter which means my birthday and Christmas and my job to pick up into full speed so that’s always exciting.  I’m just glad to be back with my blog (ps sorry for the absence) starting fresh.

  

I love you all, thanks for reading. ❤️
