Finally he is gone! and this world needs more LOVE!!


I couldn't call him. Don't blame me, it was hard! I decided that an email will be enough.
I got to the point that I'm sick of this situation so I told him everything that i feel in that email. He didn't reply and honestly I was expecting an email back!
I feel so much better now
Finally, I figure out the only way that I could get rid of those feelings is telling him them even if he doesn't care anymore. I do care and love is something that should be never hidden.
So if u love someone tell them, let them know.. After all, you will do your part and I promise you will feel better (cuz on my own experience i felt better).. what they do after it is up to them but at least u did something. This world needs more love!! Do something to full your life with that amazing feeling called LOVE you won't regret it.

what if...

My heart is about to explode!! I cant hold this anymore but i don't want to break into little pieces in from him!! I hate that I am not enough brave to do that freaking call.. my heart and mind are full of questions right now! What should I do? the worst feeling in life is what if...
what if he doesn't love anymore?
what if he still feel something for me?
what if I just forget.. and just keep moving on!
what if he is the love of my life do I suppose to leave it like that.. not even trying once more
what if I already try enough but I keep building up too much expectations and still attach to the memories and feelings of the past
what if he was right and we are not mean to be together
what if I'm the only one stuck with this feeling and he got over it!
what if...
what if.......
what if...............
I CAN BELIEVE THAT IM STILL IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE THAT I DIDN'T SEE FOR MORE THAN 3 MONTHS

A typical BYU's date

I'm happy!! I went out with the guy from my class! I went to work at 4 and i left at 6 and he suppose to come to pick me up at 6:30. I miss the bus so i walked as fast as I can, praying that he won't be at my door! Then my battery died so I couldn't text him to come a little bit late.
Anyways things turn well I got home at 6:30 he wasn't there yet (lucky me). The inicial plan was to watch a movie in the internacional cinema but we decided to go to his place and watch a movie. We Watched the pursuit happiness if you didnt watch yet I highly recommended. After that we ate ice cream, then went to the park swing in the swingers ( and you know I LOVE SWINGERS), played frees bee, went back again to his apt, watch a little bit of the who's documentary, went for a walk, sat close to the pond, saw how the ducks behave and laughed of them, walked in a rainy night, he hugged me... It was all nice the only thing I regret is when he hug me like a baby that remained me Daniel so bad. he was the one who used to hold me like that!
You can tell I still miss him! =S

PiCtUrE TiMe!!





Missing my mom!!

Today I'm moody!! I hate that I can focus lately!! I know what i want but it is becoming harder that I thought. I need my mom so bad! I was thinking what if I just come back but running away it is not the solution!
This feeling of being overwhelmed is killing me.. midterms are here, he is leaving, I dont like my job, I am not having auto control lately, finding friends has been hard lately!!

I just want to know what my Heavily Father wants from me?? and how I can achive it? I miss old times where everything was so simple and I had my mom supporting me and giving me strength to keep going!

SoAp OpErA LiFe

Dating could be more complicated that it seems to be. Today I went to take lunch with the ex boyfriend of the sister of one of my friends (this sounds so odd but it is a real story) Why this has to happen to me ?? seriously are you kidding me??
First, these girls are Ecuadorians so I will betray my country and my own people (I'm exaggerating but I feel the ecuadorian community will hate me).
Second, I don't want to deal with all the drama, I have enough with what i have by now!
Third, I don't know if this guy likes me or he just want to make her ex jealous.. and if thats the reason I don't want to be part of it.
Forth, he is kind of cute but he is blond and blondies are not my type!
Fifth, I think I enjoy the date =S, and I really like that he loves my culture...
He has been texting me all day!! ( its weird cuz usually americans dont do that after a first date)

I feel that sometimes my life is a soap opera. For real i could sell it and make some money with all my drama and my crazy stories haha

If YoU aRe A gIrL.. u GoTTa LoVe FlOwErS!!






I have such a good bro... today he surprised me with the most wonderful and beautiful flower bouquet!! Today is not even my b-day but it made my day.. I'm super happy . I'm lucky!!
I LOVE YOU MY BRO... U R THE BEST

Psd: I look so pale in the pics there is no doubt that the summer is gone.. so don't look at me look the flowers lol

Midterms

DEAR MIDTERMS:
I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I DON'T HATE YOU... BUT YOU ARE NOT MY FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD.. LET'S HAVE A GOOD RELATIONSHIP THIS WEEK....
I PROMISE YOU I'LL DO MY BEST!

XOXO,
LAURA

Weekend recap




This was a fun weekend. It was full of fake stomachache haha.. late driving nights, late dinner with friends, a cute waiter, crazy dances moves, good conversations with my mommy, cleaning rooms, text messages that weren't responded, recognition of what i really need rather what i want, chatting with old friends, be someone else just for talking with him, unexpectedly
someone ask me on a date, someone try glasses and she realize that they are not made them to her.. a little bit of crying!
But overall there I found reasons to be happy
I'm alive and everyday, every hour, every minute can be a new start!
Just try and try!

I just dont get it

A couple weeks ago I was eating in the cougareat when this guy approach to me with a dumb excuse that I didnt even understand . He ask me if he could sit next to me.. I was nice and I said yes (my mom taught me manners). He started to talk to me and he asked me for my number I didnt hear from him til sunday night (back home he would text me right away).
He invited me to take dinner on Monday (I EVEN SKIP WORK FOR THIS DATE) I told myself: Laura you have to give this guy an opportunity just go!
Dinner was fun we ate in the noodles&company, anyways his invitation was literally We just had dinner and that was it!!
I send him a text the other day he send me a short text and I didnt reply!
It is not that i like this guy cuz Im not but it really confuse me how dating works in Provo!
Why this guy would like to spend money paying dinner if he wasn't interested on me?
Why a guy would approach to you with the chance of being dumped out?
for me he must think you are attractive for doing that or what!!

I just don't get how dating works in Utah!!

Official news

He is leaving next week!! I didn't call him yet. I really want to do that call but I don't know what to say.. should it be just a casual call like " hey good luck with your trip" or should I be honest with myself and tell him the truth of how I feel... I will let you know how it will go??
Pray for me I don't want to break my heart again.. I'm barely recovering so hopefully he will be nice with me (it doesn't mean that he should still be in love with me but if you ask me it will be cool to know that he stills feels something for me) Anyways I don't want to build up fake hopes inside me, i just want to hear his voice just one more time, and wish him a good luck with his new life!

My other self


There is a time in your life that you meet someone who is more like a friend she is more like your other you! This gorgeous girl next to me is my other me. I love her so much!
We share so many things in common: dancing, glasses, style, even our dears have the same name "DANIEL"..... I wish I could have her a little bit closer cuz I miss her a lot.
People think that we are sisters cuz we look alike a lot! what do you think? do we look a like?
I'm happy that i was able to find my other self.. I'm sure that this is a blessing that not everyone have.
I LOVE YOU


Hay un momento en la vida donde conoces a alguien que es mas que una amiga, ella es tu otro yo. Esta hermosa nina junto a mi es mi otro yo... La amo mucho!!
Compartimos tantas cosas en comun: la danza, los lentes, el estilo, incluso el nombre de nuestro queridos es el mismo " DANIEL" .. Deseo tanto tenerla mas cerca porque la extrano demasiado!!
La gente piensa que somos hermanas por nuestro parecido fisico! que piensan? nos parecemos?
Estoy tan feliz de haber sido capaz de encontrarte amiga.. Estoy segura que esto es una bendicion que no todos tiene
TE AMO

I heard a lot about of service lately and I thought what I'm doing to serve others. I really want to help but where, when and who i will help.. all this questions where resolved. I found this web site volunteermatch.org....Go and check it out you will find a good opportunity to serve others

Tuesday

Tuesday... they are always better than Mondays!! This lately days Im going through this hate/love relationship with my life!!
I have a paper due tomorrow and I didn't even start it! I have to go to work and I dont even have a good excuse of why yesterday I didn't go to work yesterday!
I decide that Im gonna call him even if he brakes my heart again! At least I will stop wondering and imagine things plus he is leaving pretty soon so I wont have to see him again!
Probably I wont sleep tonight, I might be writting this paper all night long, hopefully my computer will work (today was acting weird) and tomorrow I will feel much better than today!

Not again!

I'm feeling frustrated!!! I hate that HE IS LEAVING, I cant do anything about it, I hate that I can get over him, I hate to not be able to call him and tell him how i really feel, I hate that things ended up so fast, I hate when I cant understand chemistry, I hate when I get excited and nothing happen, I hate when i set goals and I don't accomplish them, I hate when I feel alone..

one of the last pictures together.. where things seemed to be perfect

I MISS YOU!!

MIX EMOTIONAL


I'm kinda of mad Ecuador didnt win against Uruguay and that makes harder our chance to go to the World Cup. I don't lose my faith til' the last game, for me Ecuador can still make it !!

I spent the night with some friends playing arcade tokens. I had a blast!!.
I remembered my childhood and it was priceless.

I also figured out something really sad! He is leaving to Peru at the end of this month.... I will miss him even more but maybe this is what i need. I really want to call him and tell him how i feel but i dont want be hurt again!

GOOD LUCK DANIEL, I WISH YOU THE BEST!!

Letter to myself


Dear life and Laura:


We hate when you don't do want you have and need to do... I hate when you procrastinate but I love you no matter what!! I just want you to be better!! You get easy despair but I want to tell you something.. this life is about keep trying, trying and trying! You have everything to be successful!!
I like when you wear dresses you look really cute on them!! I hate when you don't do you laundry seriously we need clean clothes more often ( I know we have a lot of clothes and we never run out of them) but for your own sake do it once a week and I promise you it will be easier!
I know that lately things seems to be hard especially for your heart, I know that you miss the guy and I wont judge you. For the first time you really feel in love. You loose this time, he left you I know how hard that was for you. You had a lot of plans, ideas, illusions, desires, goals and all of them included him. He is gone, he didn't take the risk so stop wondering what life would be if he will be here.
HE WONT COME BACK! and thanks god he is not coming back, he is not a bad person just not the right one for you!
Take advantages of being school, you don't imagine how many opportunities you are loosing when you get discourage! as I tell you keep trying even if you fail that will make you a better person. When you decide to do something SAY IT, MEAN IT AND DO IT. Life is not easy and the kind of life you want its not for losers!
Enjoy what ever you are doing time wont come back again! Thanks for all you do, thanks for trying to be better, thanks for show love for others, thanks for being grateful.
you will find your prince and you will have a wonderful family.

I LOVE YOU!

Time to rest and think!!

The weekend is here! This week was fast and I'm happy for that! This weekend I will be mostly like doing homework, studying, putting new goals, watching this movie and sleeping. I dont wanna see anyone. This weekend will be all about me!!
HAPPY WEEKEND!! XOXO

Superwoman




Today, I'm not feeling good!! I dunno whats wrong with me!! I need to sleep more. I just realized that I become a facebook addicted and THAT'S NOT GOOD at all.. The weekend is here and it is time to breath, to recover energy, to fight against my new addiction, to keep going because..........
I'm a superwoman even when I'm a mess!!

heritage

I'm so proud to be latina!! It is awesome to have a heritage rich of culture, traditions, dances, yummy food and wonderful people. Latinos are well=known for shaking the bootie and our lively parties!! One of my best friend is participating in a beauty contest and so happy for her! This is not a normal beauty contest! cuz you dont need just to be pretty (obviously she's gorgeous). You need to represent also the culture of the country. She is representing Paraguay and Brazil! She just called me this morning to ask me if I can be her choreographer, I said yes!! Our choreography will rock your socks!!



I'm thinking of doing something like the first part of this video!!

Dating affairs


Oh yeah people might thought that i have tons of dates thanks to the dating environment here at BYU and my personal attributes (yes I'm humble haha) but actually not! It is not that I'm picky cuz I'm not! Yesterday, I talked over the phone with this old date mate (yes i like to call'em mates). He was asking me why I am not dating... this make me think... seriously why I'm not going on dates lately... This guy told me that I'm attractive and nice so that is not the problem! I guess, since my last boyfriend I became unapproachable.. I don't know what happen I used to be the girl who was really talkative, funny and flirt. It was easy for me to move on but not this time. I had the biggest crush on my ex and it is taking me a lot of time getting over this. Anyways I decided to do something in order to fix my datingless (no dates) life.. I will be more friendly more approachable and yeah less picky! I still have some standards, I don't want creepy guys so for the rest of you that don't fit in the last description!
I'm ready for you guys !!

Erase your draft messages.. for your own sake haha


Yesterday i did something dumb, by mistake i sent a text... It wouldn't bother me because I always send text messages to the wrong person and that's kind of normal to me.. BUT I send it to my ex boyfriend he replied yes he did but he seemed to be surprised... let me put it in the right words he didn't know who was texting him or at least he pretended that he didn't know. He sent me 3 messages asking who is this?? i didn't reply OBVIOUSLY. I was too asleep (it was 2 am) and ashamed.. but it is weird the night before I texted him on purpose and I wrote that this is Laura but he didn't reply, so my guess is that he knows that the the crazy texting woman was me!
I just laughed of myself and my foolishness this morning!!

Where the wild things are


I want to watch this movie so bad!! If someone wants a date with me take me to this movie and I will like you and for sure I will say yes to the 2nd date haha!!
