Always wanna grow up




It's not until we've actually grown up that we realize Peter Pan wasn't talking shit...

Bright lights

      The past week I've been keeping my eyes on a particular star in the sky. Bright enough to see clearly through the city lights. Was told I've actually been starring at a sun from a different planet...


      If that's the case, I've been wishing on one hell of a star.

The 'ole crane game

     

 Summer 2001, family friend vacationing. More than likely visiting Cedar Pointe. A mini arcade included in the corner of our hotel's lobby. The crane game caught our attention (my buddy and I, shown above). The crane game was our shit. Of course we won. Then it gyped us. The crane pulled a "drop right in front of drop box" bullshit.

      This was unacceptable.

      Verified our arms and hands couldn't reach, even with anything as a prop (which usually worked for us). So we shook it. I don't even remember if we got our prize, because red alarms everywhere started going off. They had to evacuate the hotel.


      All for a shit quality plush toy. 
      Kids...

The snapchat epidemic

      I'm a tad out of date with the whole snapchat thing. Bitches be wearing cartoon flowers in there hair. Every Facebook profile pic.
      Seriously, go check
So long duck face, hello animated accessories.

Here's my experience


The infamous flower hair
Aside my lil cuz, who ranked #1 in choir! 

I now rep the unrealistic cute deer


My friend and I did an interesting experiment...

We swapped faces.
WHAAA!? 
I look incredibly real...

Can't lie, I'm impressed.

Love vs fear

      Is it better to be loved or feared?
"That's a good question. It's great to be both, but it's very difficult. But if I had my choice, I would rather be feared. Fear lasts longer than love."
- Sonny



      They protect you.
      Farmers give you complimentary produce, fresh off the money trees.
      They give a hand when needed.
      A shoulder to cry on.
      A place to call home.
      They support your decisions.
      They laugh at your jokes.
      They listen to your rants.
      They stand by your side.

      They feel obligated to do these things.
Because they fear the outcome of not doing so.
      Or maybe they sincerely want to do these things.
      Because they love you.
      If I had my choice, I'd rather be loved.

Last Christmas I gave you my heart

      This Christmas I got the most amazing gifts. Except the 2000 piece mandala coloring puzzle for my little cousin. No idea how that works, didn't think it through.
      Pup dope soap on a rope for brother & his fiance. Founders of Dope on a rope soap.
      The best of all was from the heart.
A scrapbook for my faja of his mother's childhood - now.
      I've made family scrapbooks but this one was special.

      Because we know nothing of her side of the family.
Thanks to my great grandpa changing his last name...

      Last month my wonderful cousin informed me my grandma's childhood pictures still existed. Gave me prints. Here's a few of my favorites.


One of two pictures of my great grandpa. My grandma on the far right
Notice the smile on his face? It's sincere. Unposed. Pure happiness. I Love it. Rare for the 1920's.


Grandma on the left with her tap shoes. Explains the dancing in my blood.


Does every grandma have a sexy beach pic? Mine do. I'd like to hang them up framed side by side.

       Given a picture of my great grandpa's obituary card too. Obviously
I gave the cemetary a call. Found his grave location, year he died, and his middle name

      Ironically my faja got me a DNA testing kit for christmas. You send it in, tells your ethnicity percentages.

      This will be an excellent 2017 adventure for my family and I.
