This is on a playlist of mine that I've been meaning to delete.. I'll get around to it soon.

This weekend I hung out with my excellent friend, James. He doesn't know it, but he helped me smile more than I had all week. We went on a few adventures which may or may not have included:

visiting the secret spot and face stalking people from our hometown
hunting down some shades and a hat for his job this summer
watching the king's speech (eh, a bit overrated)
Pwning each other via mario kart #toad4lyfe
trying Five Guys for the first time...not too shabby
talking about old times :)

We've been great friends since sixth grade and totally had a thing for each other when i was 12 <33 now that we're all grown up, we're no longer tween loves as we once were but great friends indeed :) He's leaving on his mission in August for Fort Worth, Texas and I couldn't be more proud of him. Best of luck Elder Daniel!

So, like I mentioned earlier, this last week I've gone pretty much without a smile. Too many things happened and I realized I didn't know myself as well as I thought I did. Since then, I've made some pretty big decisions in order to find out. I've felt something foreign from a mixture of about a million different emotions and struggled to understand that what I want isn't always going to be what is practical...and that's the hardest part.

I'm ready to pull a Tom from 500 days and get my life back in order...and I just really want a cool montage of me doing really successful things over these next few weeks played to a sweet song.

I don't regret this last week at all though. I found out more about who I really am, and that's never a bad thing. I'm moving forward from this point and I'm confident of getting somewhere.

p.s. Smile. you never know how that one thing can make someone feel..or a lot of little things all put together.

Mother Hen

...ok so this song has nothing to do with the post, but it reminded me of things.

Anyway, happy Mom Day! This is the first Mother's Day I'm spending away from my mom and it feels weird. Look, there she is! babe, i know.
1. cooks me real Salvadorian food
2. attends zumba classes regularly
3. always exaggerates the time when trying to wake me up from a slumber
4. is best friends with all the nail ladies at the salon.
5. is a champ when it comes to business negotiations
6. speaks English with an accent that all my friends like so much
7. listens to the Eagles
8. came to all my soccer games and would always lather my face with sun block. the embarrassment.
9. calmed my fear of an alien abduction when i was ten
10. raised me to be who I am today

This was taken almost a year ago. That day she told me she was proud of me. It's my favorite picture.

She's the person I admire the most, and I love and appreciate her more than any blog post can do justice.

Rinnie Rinster.

I am obsessed folks..with this song.

I am also obsessed with rinnie rinster:
Name: Corinne Morrison
Category: Best Friend
Fact: Likes to watch boring tv shows.
Hobbies: cupcake eating, doing things to get kicked out of peter and the chicks, being really little.
Birthday: irrelevant.

So I know I posted yesterday, and you're like dude you're weird, I totally regret clicking on this link. Ehh, fair enough. But too much has happened within the last 24 hours regarding this girl and I want the world to know the following:

 all of your best friends suck compared to mine.

Feast your eyes upon her fearsome demeanor!
Abilities: excellent voice, good at painting nails, has sweet collection of beanies
weaknesses: cries, is little.
Special Powers: Hermione look-a-like, can prank on command, shares cool stories, can break into heavily guarded forts.

If your best friend can do all of the above...then they are imaginary because there can only be one rinnie rinster.


In all seriousness though, I don't know how Corinne does it. She's the person I can think aloud with. We've talked about our fears, secrets, dreams and desires. I'm Holly Henrich, I hardly ever show my emotions. I'm the most bad-ay chick you'll ever meet (new lightsaber being added to collection soon). She knows who I really am and has still stuck around all this time. She's laughed with me, pranked with me, and as of late, cried with me. She's the most selfless best friend I could ever ask for. She knows exactly how I feel all the time and has always been there for me. Even when I first met her a few years back, she knew exactly how to be my friend in a time that I needed one the most.

Truth is everyone, Corinne is the best friend we all want to have in our lives. She'd do anything for me..even if it ends up hurting her. I don't deserve a friendship like this, but I don't ever want to lose it. I realized recently how much she means to me through an experience I wouldn't wish upon any foe. She's the person I need the most, and I'm blown away to even be considered her best friend. I wouldn't want to fight any sith lord without her.

location, location.

So last weekend I went back to my homeland to visit before I came back to Provo for another six weeks. I'm currently having a spring fling with the cadavers in Anatomy and rekindling my love with my calculator in math <33

That's right baby, the TI-84 Plus. I liken it unto Ash's pokédex, dexter. In class I turned to Annalise and referred to theta as pokéball. she said " -__- , that's theta". haterz gon' hate. But I mean, look at this thing:

what I would do to get my hands on one of those bad boys..

Anyway, like I was saying, last weekend I was able to spend some quality time with my family and friends:

pumping iron runs in our family, as you can see.

also, so does swag.


HEHEHEH. this is my friend Lei Lei. It's always a nice thing to sit down and have a meal with this one whenever I'm in town...even if it does take more than a few tries to accommodate. <33

Nothing compares to home :)

The new roomsters are pretty sweet though. Among them I have one from Spain and another from Peru! Voy a practicar mi español con ellas >:)

Also..i kind of miss this. kind of.

..well actually, that's a lie. That kool aid was disgusting.
