Super adventurous Soak City day with the boyfriend. Decided to go Soak City on a whim on Sunday just because! It was super fun (: the lines though… not the way I remember it ): there’s a line for the tubes and then another line for the slide itself. So it’s pretty bleh. But it was a fun day!
I actually really like having short hair. But I have withdrawals when I can’t put it up!
Yesterday’s movie night on the beach— showing of Disney Pixar’s Cars! I can’t believe that was my first time watching it! Loved it. (:
Hi, my name is Maricar and I have
acne beauty scars and holes in my face called pockmarks that left indentations. And no amount of make up can change or hide that. But it’s okay because the people that I care about think I’m beautiful. Most importantly, I think I am. Kbye!
I took Japanese for two years in high school. Then took two years of French. I hardly remember Japanese, but I can still read Japanese characters in katakana and hiragana. And even though I took French more recent, I remember only the basics. Probably because I used to ditch my French class my senior year almost every day, but still got an A.
I wholeheartedly believe in feeling beautiful in the skin that you’re in. And loving yourself and your body for what it is. With that being said, I believe you can STILL think you’re beautiful in the very skin that you’re in, and still be able to recognize that if you want to be a little healthier, or a little skinnier, or a little toner— then that is exactly what you CAN be.
It is everyone’s mission to love your very own body— every single inch of it. But sometimes you need a little motivation by comparing yourself to someone else. But it doesn’t mean you hate yourself for what you already have or that you’ve forgotten how beautiful you are the way that you are. Sure, we all hate to “compare.” But it’s human nature. If health, strength, and being fit is the motive, then why not?
"Healthy, not healthy, working on it— we are all human, we all deserve to be happy, we all deserve to love ourselves." And I shouldn’t care, and you shouldn’t care neither, about what other people think about you. You can look however you want if that’s what makes you happy. What YOU think is what matters. If I want to be healthier, then that’s up to me. It’s not about looking like a model, or wanting to be perfect, it’s about how you feel about yourself and not hating yourself for what you have. Even if you do want to change yourself, it doesn’t mean you have to hate yourself and your body for what it is now.
I captioned the picture above saying “My body on the left. Goal body on the right. My body looks like crap compared to the right. But seeing that is what keeps me motivated.” I want to tone up, yes. And I want to lose some body fat, yes. And I do admit to the misuse of saying my body looks like “crap.” It’s not what I meant or what I intended. And I admit that yes, comparing yourself can be a terrible thing. If it’s leading you to an unhealthy lifestyle.
But honestly, I’ve decided on working out because it is a healthier lifestyle. Because it will make me stronger. Because I want to not only look better, but also feel better. Because I think I should be cutting out more fast food than I am. Because I should be eating less “unhealthy” foods anyways. More truthfully, I still eat the same. I eat everything with moderation. Too much or too little of anything can be bad for you. I don’t want people thinking that I’ve “forgotten” how beautiful I am just the way I am. Or that I’m “trippin’” and doing nothing but “comparing myself.”
I don’t think it’s wrong or even bad at all to look in the mirror and tell yourself that there can or could be room for improvements, especially if it’s to better yourself physically and mentally. It’s wrong when you look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re ugly, or not good enough.
Flash back to a few weeks ago. I had an amazing opportunity to be a part of the CSUF lock-in where youth ministries from different parishes all over Orange County come together for mass and then a night of fun! The catch? No sleeping!
I also got to perform with a well-known and wonderful worship leader, Jeremy Bermander. Check him out! It was a lot of fun. Met a lot of young students! And I’m so happy to see a lot of people from Crossroads got to come out too! Definitely will be at next year’s lock-in!
Got to bowl, got to play pool, played dance central, danced, did karaoke, had a session with Joseph on piano! It was so fun. 8pm-6am, well worth it! So thankful for being a part of a great community!
Two years, one month (: Adventure time at Sea World!
Just tried messing with my hair. And it worked. Because apparently it looked.. Really.. Crazy. Bwahaha.
My boyfriend and I tried this new place on Katella. Thumbs up! The food and the ambiance. I want to go again and try something new again! Thumbs down: The waiter we had gave us poor service. However, every one else working there was actually very nice. One of the workers even complimented my hair. Woot woot. But yea, so hopefully if and when we go back, we’ll have a better waiter or waitress!
