It’s easy to think the world is exactly as it appears. Refined. Elegant. Imposing. But sometimes all it takes is a little key to open the door to the wild side… XOXO, GG

It’s often said that no matter the truth, people see what they want to see. Some people might take a step back and find out they were looking at the same big picture all along. Some people might see that their lies have almost caught up to them. Some people may see what was there all along. And then there are those other people, the ones who run as far as they can, so they don’t have to look at themselves. And as for me, I can see clearly now. XOXO, GG

I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.

Jack Kerouac

Some people make headlines while others make history.

Phillip Elmer-DeWitt

I like people and I like them to like me, but I wear my heart where God put it, on the inside.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Life happens too fast for you ever to think about it. If you could just persuade people of this, but they insist on amassing information.

Twenty Eleven?! Bring it on.

Hope everyone had fun saying bai to 2010! I did :)

So…. New Year’s Resolutions, GO!

1. Learn to like Milk, Mushrooms, and Olives

2. Be a model student and get a 4.0 for once ;) Speaking of, I’m SO EXCITED for next semester! It’s my last of undergrad… last at the U… kinda scary but I’m very excited for my classes and projects!

3. Complain less. When I feel myself start to, I’m going to stop talking and list 5 things great about my life.

4. Read one book for fun per month. I always mean to read more, but i always find other things to do (cough internet cough). This time, I’m sticking to it! I love to read.

5. Blog once a week (at least). Something you all can look forward to! :)

6. The obligatory lose weight one: work out more (or at all…. haha) and eat better

I know I wont keep all of these, but that’s not the point. I don’t need to be perfect. I want to be better, and happier. And that is one resolution is know I can keep all year :)

Happy MMX1 all!
