What a Crazy Morning!!

Today was one of the strangest mornings I’ve had. I set my alarm at 6:30 in the morning, on both my TV and my alarm clock in my night table (…yes, I need two alarms). The problem was that my TV changes the time a week before it should (for the daylight saving, or whatever it’s called). So my alarm clock in my night table had the right time, and it went off. I was still sleepy and somehow… I have no idea how I came out with the thought that the time changes had been the day before. What is so lame is that in my mind I thought that it was Monday, but I never wake up early on Mondays because I don’t have school. Anyways… I turned on my TV and looked at the time and I was like: “Oh haha I was right, it’s barely 5:30. I still have one more hour to sleep. La la la”. So I synchronized the alarm clock with the TV clock and I went back to sleep. At about 7:25 (I was thinking 6:25), my dad knocks on my door and he says, “Are you gonna go to school?”, and I’m like “Yeah”, still thinking I had a couple more minutes. But then I kinda realized that it was a Tuesday, and that my dad never wakes me up because I wake up before he does… And here comes the panic. I got off of the bed and turned the TV and changed to a channel that had a time in it. And yes, indeed it was 7:30. I had 30 minutes to shower, do my hair, makeup, have breakfast and leave for school. Surprisingly, I had time to do all of it, except for the makeup, which I had to do after my first class when I had a small break.

So it was an awkward and strange morning, and I did not tell anyone in my family because I don’t want to seem crazy.

Where's my cake?!!

My brother bought a game called "Portal" the other day we went to Target. I'm not really into video or computer games, because I'm not very good even if I try. But today my brother brought his laptop downstairs to my mom's room, so she could play. It was funny because my mom had never played a computer game before, so it was funny to see her play. Don't get me wrong, I love my mom and I would never make fun of her in an insulting way... but this was funny to see. After my mom gave up and decided she wanted to watch a TV show instead, my brother insisted that I played the game for a while. I did, and I must say that it is frustrating for me to play, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly.

So I ended up playing the game for a couple of hours, I even missed the "What the Buck" live show. The game was cool, sometimes it was hard, but my brother was guiding me along, which made it way easier. I got attached to the companion cube way to fast, and I later was traumatized by the thought that I had to euthanize it. Also, I was promised a cake at the end of level 19, but it turned out to be a lie. A LIE!!! So after that, I ended up I guess playing the actual game; which was a million times more complicated. I got frustrated and so did my brother, so I just told him that I didn't want to play anymore.

It is a fun game, but I don't think I'll play again... And I'll probably have a couple of nightmares with that computer voice, it turned really freaky after it promised me cake, and then tried to burn me alive, and then promised me a party...

Watermelon Nights Will Be Here! So Sing Along!!

There was this weird plant growing on the side of my house. My dad thought it was a weed, but my mom and I thought it was cute because it was climbing on the wall and holding itself with these tiny cute-plant-like strands. So today my mom went out to look at the plant, and she found something... Guess what?! A watermelon!! ...well, actually there are three watermelons. They are small, but we are hoping for them to grow. My mom is a plant freak, she'll probably spend a ton of time watering and grooming the watermelon plant now...

And I found this video on YouTube and I thought it was so cute. So enjoy!

My Favorite Magazine... EVER!!!

I really enjoy magazines, especially girly ones. Sometimes I'll go to Wal-Mart or Target and I'll flip through Popstar, Seventeen, Cosmopolitan, even Vogue. But the only magazine I actually buy is called 15 a 20. I can actually say that I'm a collector of the magazine, because I've been buying it every month for a couple of years now. The thing is, it can only be found in Mexico. I really like this magazine in particular because it talks about a little of everything; celebrities, fashion, health, exercise, make up, and it has very fun articles. The covers are usually unknown Mexican models (girls), and occasionally celebrities. They rarely put boys on the cover, but I really wanted a Jonas Brothers cover. So I was determined to send a message to the magazine's Myspace, requesting the cover. I went to their profile, and the first thing I saw was the display image. It was the cover of October's magazine, and to my surprise, it had Nick, Joe, and Kevin looking amazing on it. I would have screamed, but it was about 11:30 PM, and I didn't want to wake up anybody. I totally left a comment on the picture, and I was counting the seconds till I could go buy it. All this was on Friday, September 26.

I live in a city bordering Mexico, so it's really no hassle going to buy it and come back. Don't think it is a 10 hour trip, I would not do so much as that only for a magazine. And every time we go, we also go visit my grandma and my cousin. So on Saturday, October 4th, we were all dressed up and on the car, ready to go. But my mother wanted to go to the Interceramic sale, and decided to buy 700 ft square of floor tile, therefore cancelling our little trip to Mexico. And I wasn't upset at all, the whole buying-new-floor situation was exiting, and I still had a month to get the magazine, so why worry?

So we postponed the trip until Monday, October 6th. I went and bought the magazine, and I fliped right over to the JB interview. I sort of skimed it and then I saw the poster that came in the magazine. It is adorable!! When I got home, I put it on my wall imediately. I'm not one of putting posters of guys up in my room, but these aren't just any guys, these are the Jonas Brothers.

Now, I as I write this, I can look over at my wall, and I can see my three favorite boys: Kevin, Joe, and Nick.
