i cant say that im a great photographer, but i like to think of myself as okay.
Okay enough to get me by snapping shots of Downtown Las Vegas while driving.

Annnddd since i was driving, i couldnt take photos of EVERYTHING that i wanted to.
But anyways here are a few pictures from my "after work" 20 minute touristy drive today.

Im thinking of maybe spending a a day or night where i just go around taking pictures...
i know Isaac wont like the idea of walking around and visiting random places, so i think i might go solo on this one, but either way, i think it will be cool (:

Gosh, i just realized its Thursday! Woohoo!

I always try to remind myself that its not always about the weekend, and that you have to seize every single day. Cause in all honesty every single day is another day to enjoy life, and all it has to offer. I'm slowly understanding the concept of just going for it.



The only one that is stopping you is yourself. Hey, if you want to travel round the world, do it.
If you want to move to another city, do it.
Learn a different language, take a random road trip, be a lawyer, an artist, read 100 books,
______________ (insert your to do here)

Are you simply just not going to do it cause people are telling you its stupid or it will never work?
Dont listen to them, if you want to do it, go for it.

Confined to My Own Thoughts

This is my "sitting in a white walled room, hungry, yet determined to write a blog post" face

So im sitting in what the library calls a typing room yet looks more like a jail cell, listening to the "Justin Nozuka" Pandora station. Its currently playing some Jason Mraz...who is amazing :)
Anyways back to my confinement story, Apparently all of their laptop plug in thingys are all used up, so the kind librarian man (or would it just be librarian? isint that what you call lady librarians?) told me i could use one of their "private typing rooms" for an hour. I thought to myself, "ooohh! private typing room! sounds fancy and special!" Wrong. He walks me to the waaaay back, and points to 1 one of the 4 rooms thats lined up neatly against the wall.. Looks like a room that you would put someone for being too loud in the extra quiet reading area, or for racking up too many fines.


so much for that rule. All this room has is a trashcan, 2 semi comfortable chairs, and a table size ledge to put your materials....

see...i wasnt kidding.

So anyways as we move right along...
**I got distracted with the internet, phonecalls, and email lol my time was up in the little library cell, so i moved on up to the outside patio..**

Its nice outside :) weather is perfect. This patio is nice! the only thing i would change is the big window that leads to the help desk, in which case they can see my every move. I would also take a picture but i dont want them to think im weird. Yet again, i blog about nothing so thats pretty weird in itself. There is a man sitting on one of the benches reading what seems to be a nice thick fiction novel. i hope my typing dosent bother him. I can hear the cars pass by although i cant see them. All in all, i like the library (:
Well anyways... what can i talk about?

Should i ramble on about my love/hate relationship with this week's rain? and how it made me realize i have crappy windshield wipers, causing me to BARELY see where im going while driving on the I-15 going to work? (which by the way is like 22 miles away...bleh)

or should i confess how completely in love i am with Landon Austin from YouTube? This guy can SING! i love how his voice isint the typical pretty voice, and it kinda reminds me of the lead singer from The Fray.. raspy yet smooth (:
OR should i just talk about how rough this past month has been for me.
Let me scratch that..
how tough the past few MONTHS have been for me... honestly if you know me well, you know that if im going through it, i kinda just isolate myself (non intentionally of course)from everything, and sulk into my problems. Not good, i know. However, i cant help it. Its how i cope with things. So if youre wondering, why i havent called you, messaged you, or havent stopped by.. its not you.. its this crazy life and all that comes with it. But no worries, its just a phase, and ill get right out of it (:
I heard this quote last night... && it made me think..

"Life is the longest thing you will experience, & ironically the shortest thing you will pass by"

So i leave you with that... what does that make you think?
What does that quote mean to you?

So im bounce out this place, head over to Rosa's for dinner. She sensed my need for food! Its like she has "ESPN or something" lol

Caffeee Shop (:

my little happy salamander (:

So im sitting in my new favorite place in the whole wide world...

Madhouse Coffee Shop.

So you ask yourself what makes this coffeehouse better than the rest? Well... it has pretty good coffee first of all (although not better than The Human Bean of course), awesome snacks, seating is pretty good, free wifi (well kinda... you sorta have to buy something in order for it to be free lol), and better than anything, ITS 24 HOURS! (: reason why i can be sitting here at 1:08 in the morning. Isaac is not a fan of these places, but HE was actually the one with the idea to come over here for a bit. The idea was ideal, since there is currently NO internet at mi casa. NONE, zilp, zero, nada. La mama forgot to pay the bill, so that means no service. Thats how the world works... you exchange something for something (unless you get lucky, and they just give it to you) and in this case the exchange would be $$ moolah $$ for internet service. No moolah no internet.. capeesh? Im starting to quickly fall in love with this place. Like young love once again <3 except this time, its not with some immature 14 year old, but with a wonderful calm awesome coffee house. I feel inspired here. Feel calm and collected. Where i can sit and think, and type.

So as i sit here and think of life... some things come to mind... but before that;

This couple, study buddies, or bro/sis are too cute. they are like to peas in a pod lol

and while they look cute heres what me and isaac do...

Currently as i type this he is most likely half asleep/half not awake.
I find it funny how everytime someone walks in... He acts "awake" (:

Well anyways...where were we? Oh yeah....Life.

Gosh...such a complicated word.

The word that many want to live, yet dont know how. The word many people fear is going by them too fast. The word that many have just begun, and others have finished saying. Many say its short, others long. Many keep it busy while others act casual towards it. Many feel they made a difference, while others say they stayed in their own selfish ways. Many look for its meaning, and while Websters' Dictionary has 19..I think no one will ever truly know the real definition of it.

So what does life mean to you? Is it a passion that you live for? A religion? A form of God?
Is it just something you live day by day? Carpe diem? Or something that you plan for? Does life mean having a significant other by your side? or simply having a good friend to live it with? Is it family, loved ones? or is it fame money and fortune that you strive for?

Whatever it means to you, pursue it. If it makes you happy, go for it.
The only one who can make it happen is you (:

So i leave you with that.... as Isaac gets impatient for a cozy bed and a tv. and i await a nice long ride back home :)
