Day Twenty-nine

Dear person that I want to tell everything, but am afraid to,

I want you to know everything about me, I really do.But I feel that if you ever actually get to know just a bit about me that you will just turn around and leave. Me acting more like myself around sometimes makes me feel like you do not like me as much. I feel like you getting to me, and listening to everything, you'll see that I am a disagreeable person. So perhaps I should keep everything to myself, to make life so much easier.

I am going to see a play by the Independent Shakespear Company at the Griffith Observatory in a couple of days, and I want to make something that we can snack on. French macarons have been in my baking list of thing I want to make. When I actually started looking for recipes there were so so many of them. Since I do not eat anything with chocolate that weeded out majority of the recipes. Here are some of my favorite:

Vanilla Cranberry Macarons

Day Twenty-eight

Dear someone that changed my life,

Everyone I met has made an impact in my life. I am more outgoing because you were outgoing and it was fun to be like that. I've made an effort in learning math because you told me that that is what was important in life. I am learning french because you always made it sound fun; and I am becoming a teacher because you were a great teacher who cared about all her students, even the ones like me that did not talk a lot. You who made me live life to the fullest and remind me to not dwell in thing that cannot be fixed. All of YOU I thank you.

Day Twenty-seven

Dear friendliest person I knew for only one day,

You started talking to me because we were stuck standing at the back of the class. You were such as nice person, that i took an immediate liking to to you. You told me about you experiences in Lake Cuomo, and how to be a good international relations representative. We were so engrossed in our conversation, i completely forgot to do the assignment.

Day Twenty-six

Dear last person I made a pinky promise to,

Surprisingly I still remember, or maybe is just that you mentioned it so often that that memory has been ingrained in me. I do not know how I came to promise what I did. I think you are the one that said it. Well anyways, all of sudden you said 'pinky promise me', and I just agreed saying sure; while thinking,this is not really going to happened anyways. But you told everyone about it. Now a couple years later I can still remember that I made that promise and I know that I can never fulfil that promise, so I am so glad you have forgotten. It had something to do with you watching a Harry Potter movie. Anyways you are the first and last person I've pinky promise, and it'll probably be the last time cause I do not like that there is promise which I cannot keep.

Day Twenty-five

Dear person I know that is going through the worst of times,

I know that you are going through a tough patch right now. I feel like you cannot trust me enough to let me help you. You give me that secretive smile every time I ask if you are okay. But I feel that behind that secretive smile, there are unshed tears that want to come out. There is a saying that I like: 'Tears are to the soul as soap is to the body.' If you need to talk tell me. I will try to just listen and not do what I did last time, I promise. Everything gets better after a while, remember in a year things will be different.


Day Twenty-four

Dear person who gave me a favorite memory,

Every time I am down or sad all I have to do is think back to that moment and i'll find myself smiling. You might not know it but it really has made it as one of my top ten favorite moments. Thank you!

Day Twenty-three

Dear last person I've kissed,

I do not really remember you much anymore. We had our moment and the sun has already gone down.

Day Twenty-two

Dear Someone I'd give a second chance,

As long as you do not hurt me or kill me, I'll will always give you a second chance.


Day Twenty-one

Dear someone I judged by their first impression,

My first impression of you was that you were antisocial and had a dry personality. You were someone whom I could not carry a conversation. I'm sorry that because my impression I was cold to you, but you were just shy. Sorry.


p.s. you are now one of my closes friend and you turn out to be a cool guy. Glad I ignored that first impression.

Day Twenty

Dear person who broke my heart the hardest,

I hope I would never meet you. I do not know you but I know you are lurking in my future.


Monday, August 16, 2010

Day Nineteen

Dear someone that pesters my mind,

Get out of there, let me be. I can't really understand why you are there.


Sunday, August 15, 2010

Day Eighteen

Dear person that I wish I could be,
I seriously do not know that would be.


Day Seventeen

Dear someone from my childhood,

Growing up I always envied you, I still do. You are so much cooler and knowledgeable. You were also my one constant friend ( that wasn't family), in my childhood. I regretted that we lost touch for a bit in high school, each following our own path. But it is so nice to see you now. Though you are now married and have your own responsibility we can still hangout like all times. You are like another sister part of our family, you and your whole family.

Day Sixteen

Dear someone who is not in my Country,
How are you??? I am so excited that you'll be back soon!! Though I did not really talk to you these pass few years after high school, I always felt you were reachable, but when you decided to spend this past year in Spain, I was when can i talk to you?? But I so hope we can hang out soon.

Day Fifteen

Dear someone I miss the most,
I just want to say I miss you.


Day Fourteen

Dear someone I've drifted away from,
We were very good friend, we had some really good times where we laughed and had fun. But those days have long pass. I took this path and you took that path. When I hang out with you, its like old times, but I know that the person I act around you is my high school self. You have not yet left high school, you are still in that state, while I have moved on. Its nice to remember high school, but I do not wish to go back. You on the other hand have stayed there, with no thoughts of leaving yet. Call me when you have left high school, and then we can enjoy each others company again. We will always ' death food' though :)

Day Thirteen

Dear Someone I wish could forgive me,

Unfortunately I don't think you would never read this because you said you'll never speak to me again. So I think If you did read this, I hope you can truly forgive me and know that I did it because I did not want to hurt you. If I did not do it then we both would have been more hurt later on. I know it is unacceptable now, years later but it better later than never right?

Day Twelve

Dear person I hate most,

You could have left me alone, but NOOO you have to pretend you cared and you just did it cause someone ask you too. Why did you decide to do this. That is not such a nice thing to do.

Day Eleven

Dear deceased person I wish I could talk to,
Abuelito i miss you so much, especially these past few days as we are reminiscing about you. It almost going to be six year since you pass away, but i still feel like it was only last year that i played cards with you, or listening to all your childhood memories. Oh how i loved just sitting at the kitchen table and listen to you talk. I still regret that you never made it to see me walk after high school and now college. I try and be a good person so that you could be proud of me. And I hope you and mi abuelita are really looking down at all of us and see that even though we have all separated, that we all love you, and we all miss you. Ignore how your children are acting, they seemed to have lost sight of the meaning of family, but i know that with time, we will all be on Big happy family.

~Tu nieta, Leli

Day Ten

Dear people I don't talk to as much as I'd like,

I see you often and we get along well, and it seems like we talk a lot, but we don't. We don't have as meaningful conversations as i wish we could. Sometimes we only skim the top part of what we should talk about but i think its me who does not try to plunge into real feeling. It takes courage and guts and I guess i am just a wuss.

Day Nine

Dear Someone I wish I could meet (future me),

I have so many questions to ask you. Are you happy? Are there things you wish to tell me so that I can make an even better you? I can picture you, being happy, going to work everyday, and coming home to a loving family. But what I cannot imagine is which road am I suppose to take in order for me to get there. It's like I know what I want but I don't know how to get there. I seem to have lost that piece of paper where I wrote all of it. oh, and if time travelling is invented yet, send me a sign (lol the nerd in me can only hope it can happen)


Day Eight

Dear favorite online friend,

Okay. You're my favorite because not only do I speak to you online, but I also speak to you in person.

Day Seven

Dear Ex,

When I think back all I can see is your angry face. Things weren't going well and still when it came at the end you were surprised, angry, mad. Because of that, I carry no fond memories.

Day Six

Dear Stranger,

I went into McDonald's to eat and I came out having a great conversation with you a stranger; and being told that I had what was needed to become a good teacher. Thank you.

Day Five

Dear Dreams,
Best night sleep is when I don't remember you. What I have remembered of you, you are just full of emotions, and why can't I see faces, huh? So please let me forget you before I wake up.


Sunday, August 1, 2010

Day Four

To my sisters,
I just want to tell you that you will always be my sisters, and if you need anything I'll always be there. I hope that even though we are always arguing and from the outsider view we are really mean, that you know we are arguing because that is who we are and we are actually having fun. I hope that you'll never take it anything seriously. I'll always criticizing because I want you two to become much better people than me. I know I'm can be sometimes mean, and you two are scare of me sometimes.I know I cannot change, I know that. Just bear with me.
