I think this thing is a little TOO nice.

It makes me question if it even works.

i think it's so funny when the 16 year old girl behind the glass at the movies asks to see ryan's i.d. when we're going to a rated r movie and he asks her "you think i'm under age?" and she doesn't even glance to my little 17 year old sister standing there, but points right at me and says "no, but she looks like she is."

ha.

i'm in the third of 6 weeks i have completely off for summer and i don't know what to do with myself.

ryan goes to work every day, and if he's not at work he's on tour so i'm usually on my own. every wednesday in june the band is playing the house of blues vegas, and getting paid pretty well, but it's too quiet here. i try to hang out late with people but they all have school & jobs & get burnt out too early for me, so i get stuck watching re-runs of law & order all night with my dog.

sound check.

i know one day i'll look back at this jobless/schooless 6 weeks with envy. my day usually consists of: sleeping in, working out, showering, laying out, going out, and then going back to bed. i seriously have the best life. it's amazing how much i can fill my day up with nothing. i'm trying to get a bunch of reading for pleasure in (that is usually done during the laying out). so far i've read the chronicles of narnia, the da vinci code, lovely bones, a dr. laura self help book, and next i plan on reading freakonomics. the next time i'll have this much free time won't be until i'm retired and all my kids are grown, so i'm really trying to soak it all in and take advantage. if i want to, i can even leave everything and go on a road trip, which i think i might do next week to and go to san fransisco.

i'm nervous to go back to school. i'm getting so used to all this leisure time that i think all the stress might cause a shock to my system. at least i'll get to see my friends again and hopefully next year will be easier than last year because i kinda know what i'm doing now. my life has never been so hard as it was my first year of hygiene school and i don't think i can handle another year like that. i just can't wait until a year from now when i'm done with school forever, except maybe for some spanish classes or music lessons or something fun.

so i babysit for ruth for hair cuts. it's hard when i'm trying to spend my saturday studying and have to watch two little boys and a puppy, but i still feel like i'm getting the better end of the deal. those boys are so entertaining.

this picture just says it all.

i've turned into one of those white trash weirdo's who brings their dog with them everywhere they go. but i can't help it, he's so damn cute. he just lays in my lap while i study- and i study A LOT. he's in my lap right now. so we've had a lot of bonding time. it's nice because ryan is hardly ever home lately (because of the band and "yo gabba") and this way i don't get all freaked out that my house is too quiet. he even comes in the bed with me when ryan's gone. i've always been so disgusted by people who let their dogs in their bed, i said i'd rather live with an indoor smoker than have that smell. i take it back. oscar doesn't stink... yet.

i really do love him.

holliday hangover [Jan. 4th, 2006|12:54 pm]

[music |Postal Service - the district sleeps]

i feel so unproductive, but i guess that's what vacation is all about. it's 11:59am and i'm still in my p.j.'s and my teeth aren't brushed. i can't even enjoy this freedom because something deep down tells me i should feel guilty that ryan is slaving away at work, as he did yesterday and will have to tomorrow, to earn money for us to live. i deserve this though, i shouldn't feel any guilt. come next monday i will be slaving away in my own hell of school for 6 months.

unproductive as i am right now, my vacation has been eventful. especially christmas- which i consider a 3 day party starting with christmas eve...

(gma & gpa becerra with the gkids)

which we spend with ryan's extended family. we eat the tamale's we made and froze on tamale night and the older adults get slightly hammered on champagne and wine- that's when it starts to get fun. we take too many pictures then open presents. there are only three little kids (very different from my family.) my favorite part is when grandpa becerra brings out the toys for the little kids that he actually makes with his own hands in his wood shop. ryan has a ton from when he was a kid. i hope i have kids while he's still young enough to build stuff.

then on christmas morning...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
we get up at 4:30am to go to my mom's house by 5:30am (where all my siblings are already awake) and get to wake my parents up at 6am. my mom has a different secret code every year so we don't know whose presents are whose and get to guess on christmas morning. when she finally tells us (this year it was the type of card on the present)my little brother plays santa and passes all the presents out and we go in a circle- youngest to oldest, opening one at a time. around 8:30am we go to...

ryan's parents' house to do their christmas morning. we go in a circle opening one at a time. then bobbi, my mother-in-law, makes this huge amazing breakfast. (way different from my mom's breakfast of giving us poptarts in our stockings). then at 1pm we go to church. ryan didn't want to go but we decided to. after all, what were we celebrating?

then christmas evening...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
we go to my extended family (on my dad's side). each family (that means my dad's siblings, there are seven of them) has to do a talent before opening presents. the talents consist of musical instruments (piano, guitar, xylophone, flute and trombone), skits, stories, singing, etc. then after opening presents, everyone puts on the pajamas grandma got them for a picture (seen above.) then we do a white elephant gift exchange.

on christmas adam (day after)...

we did our 6th annual trip to knotts berry farm with the extended family. snoopy on ice and the whole bit. i was slightly depressed when i saw that they took out the swings.

on new years eve...

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
we celebrated christmas with my mom's side of the extended family in vegas. that side of the family is so big that we had to do it at a church building on a basket ball court. each family does a talent and then we do a white elephant gift exchange. max was devastated when nathan tried to steal his slurpe machine.everyone boo'd until nathan gave it back and then max guarded that thing with his life.

and then we went to pahrump.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
this was all we did there- lay around. i remember having to go there as a teenager, my mom used to hang it over our heads as the ultimate punishment "if i can't keep you under control i'm going to send you to live with your grandparents in pahrump." my poor little sister had to spend her new years there. but now i kinda like it. it's weird to step outside and realize that there are people out there who live in totally different conditions and surrounding than yourself. and it was ryan's first pahrump experience so it was fun to see his reaction.
prostitution is legal there so there are tons of "brothels," so you can guess some of the weird things we get to see there. they're opening a men's brothel, with male prostitutes. although they claim it's not targeted at the homosexual population, what woman would actually go there? women just aren't the same as men, they don't need to pay for it if they want it. and they're more concerned with the feelings involved. i just don't see how it would work.

anyway, if you think this entry was long and draining to read, just remember that i had to live it. that's why i have to keep telling myself that i don't need to feel guilty for being such a sloth today.

airports are natures way of making you look like your passport picture [Dec. 2nd, 2005|03:04 pm]

[mood |unproductive]

so... i've been really busy with school. i'm still really busy with school, i don't know why but i can't keep studying right now so this will be my little break.

i don't understand why finals have to be right after thanksgiving break. i'm still in vacation mode. i don't even know how i'm going to get through this. next semester is probably going to be the most difficult phase of my life so far. i'm terrified to give people shots. i don't mind getting them, but i don't want to hurt anyone. i'm a little scared that, as students, we practice on each other first. one of the side effect of a poorly administered intra-oral injection is facial paralysis! FACIAL PARALYSIS!

dental hygiene is my life and will be for the next two years. then i will be a mom and that will be my life and the dental hygiene will just be the funding.

i'm getting pretty close to my classmates since we're together allday, everyday. even when we're not in school we're still at school. the professors have us "by the balls," so to speak. or they would if we had balls.

we do things like...

and sometimes we get really bored and try on halloween costumes at old navy.


over the break i needed to get away so ryan and i went to utah to visit our friends sam & emilie. on the way home i knew half the people on the plane from church (flying from utah to orange county- go figure) and JP from american idol was on the plane too. got close to the long beach airport and started flying in circles. we were supposed to land at 7am (so i could go to school that day of course). i guess it was to foggy to land so we just circled for like a half an hour then we started running out of gas so they had to land in ontario, get gas and wait for the fog to clear. we were stuck on the plane in the wrong airport for hours. we weren't allowed off. they forgot to turn on the air conditioning for the first hour or so. it was horrible! i just read my book and tried not to think about where i was- stuck on a plane with a bunch of people i sort-of knew, all the mormons and their stupid crying babies and JP Lewis from american idol. to make a long story short, everthing worked out eventually.
i still love to fly.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
stuck. trapped. we look happy, but see the guy behind us? yeah, that's how we feel.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
finally off the stupid plane.

a couple weekend before that- HALLOWEEN! i hate not being young enough to trick-or-treat. i went until i was 18yrs old. i just can't anymore. i have to steal my little brother's candy now. i guess i can live vicariously through my little siblings and cousins. max and ollie were so cute!

cops & robbers

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
what max really wanted to be was "a mustache," because his dad grew a mustache to be funny (and so he could be tobias-the never nude, from arrested development for halloween)but he settled for being a cop with a mustache instead.
he has such an imagination. everyone was asking him what they should be for halloween because he was saying some of the funniest things. he told my mom she should be diarrhea. he was totally serious. didn't even crack a smile.

tobias & linsay from arrested development

i guess that pretty much sums it up since i last wrote. just school pretty much and the occasional breath of fresh weekend.

oh, and my puppy is getting big.

this weekend we went to the fair.

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

and i think i proved to myself that you don't need to have money to be happy because i had the so much fun and we didn't really spend anything - didn't even go on one ride... not even the zipper. we went around and looked at animals, talked to carneys, and pretty much just hung out. the one thing we did buy was the food! anything you ever wanted deep fried. and the fair experience just would not be complete without some...
