Check out some of the photos that we snapped in between winning money (LOL!) below! No, seriously! We (and by "we" I mean me) were on a roll! Every time I got on a machine, I was winning! (This marks my second time "legally" playing on the machines!)

Fun Day at Busch Gardens! 🙌

Hey guys!

Yesterday my friends and I went to Busch Gardens. To most, it may not be a big deal, but this was my second time visiting the park during my time living down here! (Yes! You read that right!) "Why?" You all may ask. Well... I am not really a rollercoaster type of person (especially the ones that does loops and goes upside down), and that is what Busch Gardens mostly has; there are very few rides that are not rollercoasters. Although I did not go on most rollercoaster rides with my friends, I still had fun watching them screaming their heads off LOL! (I was in the rollercoaster rides with them in spirit.)

It was a good idea that we woke up bright and early to head out to the park because it began storming in the afternoon. Regardless, we had fun!

Check out the photos below of our day at Busch Gardens! (Videos will be uploaded later only because they take so long to upload.)

My Grandma is Home For the Holidays! 🙌🎁🎄🎅

My grandma is home for the holidays!

You all have no idea how happy I am to have my grandma close with me, and to celebrate Christmas with!

Good deeds never go unnoticed! The gift that I received in return for helping spread holiday cheer was having my grandma fly in from Puerto Rico to be with us.

Check out the photos and videos below of how excited we were to see my grandma!

My Mom and I Spread Holiday Cheer and Presents to Children at a Recreation Center! 🎁🎄🎅

My mom and I spread holiday cheer and presents today by visiting children at a recreation center in St. Petersburg.

The recreation center was packed! I believe there was more than 100 children! (Don't believe me? Video will be uploaded soon!)

It was our pleasure to hand out gifts these children during the holidays. Seeing their faces light up when they saw they had a gift for them was completely priceless!

Check out the rest of the photos below! (There a few photos because we were obviously busy handing out gifts, but we took a couple of snapshots in between.)

Meet the Newest Addition to My Family: Oyuki! 🐱

Meet the Newest Addition to My Family: Oyuki! 🐱 (Leave it up to my mom to assign exotic and unique names!)

Oyuki was just a little, tiny kitten when she arrived to our house a couple of weeks ago. (My family and I believe that Oyuki is Chanel's daughter because they came to our house together.) I cannot distinguish the gender clearly, but I think this is a female kitten. I believe that my mom named her "Oyuki" because she is like a ninja or samurai. This kitten is so active and jumps anywhere, so I think that is why my mom found a Japanese name for her. Oyuki is the most playful kitty that I have ever met. Do you guys remember Boots? Boots was playful, but he never played with those toys that are for cats. Oyuki, on the other hand, has the time of her life chasing after the little ball with the feather attached. I am not really a cat person, so interacting with Oyuki by playing with the cat toy is changing my perspective of cats. (I had a REALLY bad experience with a black cat when I was younger, so I have this skepticism when it comes to cats.)

It was not until today that Oyuki got comfortable around us, so today marks the day that we accept her in our household. Oyuki can be my mom's daughter. My hands are full with Da Vinci LOL!

I Am Thanful For...

I am thankful for...
The alarm that goes off in the morning hours because it means that I am alive;
My shadow who follows me because it means that I am out in the sunshine;
The spot I find at the far end of the parking lot because it means that I am capable of walking;...
The lady behind me in church who sings off key because it means that I have no problem hearing;
A lawn that has to be mowed, windows that have to be washed, gutters that have to be fixed, and rooms that have to be cleaned because it means I have a home;
The huge pile of laundry and ironing because it means that I own a lot of clothes;
The parents that God has blessed me with because I would not be where I am today without their continuous love and support;
Everything I have been working hard for and more.
