A selfie a day keeps the bad vibes away.

A selfie a day keeps the bad vibes away.

Golfed my first 9 yesterday and decided to document my natural form from day 1 so I have something to look back on in about 6 months to see improvement. I went to the driving range and my average distance was about 80 yards. New hobbies are cool. :)

So today when I walked into work they told me I’ll be getting laid off due to our company getting bought out. As soon as they told me I had to get a venti iced green tea cuz THIS IS HOW WHITE GIRLS COPE.

An open letter to my grandpa regarding my new tattoo.Dear Grandpa Frank,I remember when I was a kid, you would pick me up from school every day. As soon as I got in the car you would ask me how my day was, and try to get me to talk about what I learned. I was always so grumpy because I was hungry and tired so I’d say, “Grandpa, I don’t want to talk, turn on the music” and you would ALWAYS turn on Celine Dion, because she was your favorite and she quickly became mine too. We would drive and quietly sing along to “Because You Loved Me.” That song was my favorite song as a kid, and I didn’t understand why until I grew up.Ever since I learned what the word “Hero” meant, I’ve always identified it with you. I’ve never cared so much about anyone or anything as much as I care about you, grandpa. You’ve always been so supportive about all the choices I have made, and you constantly bend over backwards to help me out. I know I don’t call as often as I used to, and I know that I don’t come by the house every weekend. It’s a lame excuse to say that I’ve been too busy for you, but I have been working my butt off to achieve all these goals that I have. I just want you to know that my primary goal has and will always be making you proud of me. It’s true that every time I look in a mirror or reflect on my life, I realize that I am everything I am, because you loved me. I just want to thank you for that.I love you so much!!!Love, Monique
