Spring is HERE!!!! I couldn't be happier. I'm looking forward to whatever the future brings, especially tonight because I'm going to my fave taco place for dinner. Hopefully getting some horchata :- D I finished my book last night and started a new one on Susan Sontag. Yay Yay Yay it's amazing what the sun can do!

Realized when there's an open post option I always default to diary mode!
Today's date was satisfying to me for some reason...I felt overwhelmed all day at my new position as an english teacher, although i'm enjoying the work itself. I think when I don't have a moment after I wake up to chill and do I want, the rest of the day feels rushed and I feel that "cog" feeling at work. So I meditated for five mins on my lunch break and surprisingly it helped a lot! (Random!!)
Now I'm trying to think of how I want to spend my weekend so I can get that recharge feeling. I'm thinking I'll go to the japanese grocery store and maybe go for a walk at the park with Ricardo. We watched videos of people buying things from Japanese vending machines last night and it made me feel really calm. I'm making a list of the best hits on this page. That's all I've got for today...

Matt re-inspired me to visit this site! Wow. Looking back at my posts has been a roller-coaster of emotions. Don't have much to share today except that I feel like I'm always saying the same things over and over again. I'd like to say something different next time! I appreciate my life because I love my family and also the tumblr I still visit when I'm feeling low for mental health quote inspiration ALWAYS has quotes by will smith. I almost find it unbelievable? Has he REALLY said so many wise things that we are always quoting him like this? Will Smith has become the bastion of mental health for our society. Lol. I enjoy small talk btw
Love you all,

Haven't Been here in a while!
I'm still thinking about the New Moon, one of my friends set an *Love* intention for me before the last new moon (not the one this week) and it flourished into something that's making me feel happy.... : - 3 Was it because of their intention that I feel this way or did I manifest it for myself? Of course I don't wholeheartedly believe that someone setting an intention on a new moon is enough to make real life changes beyond one's mindset, which in turn can make changes happen in real life...Well. Not sure if that's making sense. I'm waxing poetic (No pun intended) about the moon again...No news here...
I'm thinking about taking a break from alcohol for a little bit to clear my mind
I'm looking for an answer in going back to school
I'm trying to be more patient and more kind
I'm loving this website!! I need to visit here more often...

I recently found out about making "moon water" from the full moon. So I made a full jar of moon water. Last night was the Super Pink Full Moon and I set out my jar. This morning I took it inside and wondered what I should do with it? I liked the idea of moon water, you just set it out and it "soaks up the energy" of the moon. I love silly superstitions and rituals, things that show time has passed, things you can add to your to-do list to structure or divide your days.
I'm sitting on my bed with my gudetama plushie that I ordered. Sometimes when I'm making music, I face it towards me so I feel like I have an audience.
I've been trying to do loving-kindess meditations lately, because I think the best kind of meditation is probably one where you feel like you are appreciating the love in your life.
When I brush my teeth this week, I step outside and see what's going on on my street. I think that in the coming weeks, I am going to try...
*To stay off my phone as much as possible
*To spend more time walking around my neighborhood
*To read as much as possible
*To exercise compassion for myself every day
*To go to bed at 10:30pm and wake up at 7:15am
Loving Breathing...Loving Feeling the sun on My Face Today, I saw a balloon Disappear into the sky LOL
I am trying to convince myself I am not just Heartbroken inside, I am Usually feeling positive and like I can keep doing it and be the best I can be But just feeling like I've really hit rock bottom today. Tomorrow's a new day
WOW I AM SO GLAD IT'S MARCH. MY GEMINI HOROSCOPE SAID ALL THE MAGIC ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN FOR ME UNTIL NEXT MONTH, BUT I AM STILL GETTING MORE EXCITED.
