POTD: 4.29.11

29 Apr

The moment everyone was waiting for… twice!


I didn’t exactly stay up for the entire wedding… The alarm was originally set for 12:50 am so I can stay up and watch the wedding festivities; however, I opted for my sleep and sanity. I eventually woke up around 4 am to a fussing baby Sofia and turned on the TV to (groggily) catch the final moments of the new bride and groom walking back down the aisle, and of course witnessed that now historic double kiss. Sofia could be less aware of what was going on, but definitely helped to make the wedding memorable. Soon after the royal kiss, Sofia proceeded to barf all over me. Classic.

At least I can tell her that funny “royal” anecdote when she’s older.

Kate certainly looked picture perfect. The Alexander McQueen wedding dress was stunning on her, equally elegant as it was modest. It’s sad that McQueen was not alive to see what would surely have been a proud moment for him. No doubt that design will be a popular request of brides in the coming year.

I remember wondering earlier why everybody was making such a big fuss about the wedding, but I realize now how special it really was. I wasn’t alive to see the wedding of Diana and Charles in 1981, but I imagine that the mood was quite similar. This was something that the world needed. It’s literally the “Superbowl” for women. It’s what nearly every young girl wishes and imagines for herself: to be a Princess swept off her feet by a charming Prince. We all wish for that moment of walking down the aisle, the center of attention, feeling like the most beautiful girl in the world. This was the moment everybody wanted to see. That fairytale of the ordinary girl becoming a Princess… It was the glimmer of good news that people could focus on in a world full of trouble and conflict.

Best wishes to the new bride and groom.

POTD: Don’t Forget Japan

22 Apr

It’s been over a month since the earthquake and tsunami ravaged Japan, but we should still remember that they still need help there. After living the first ten years of my life there, this disaster really hit home. I really appreciate everybody’s continued concern for my friends and family members living in Japan, they are all doing well.

I was looking through some photos from the most devastated areas of Japan this morning and this one really struck me: a reminder of life amid all the ruin.

Man, how many times have I said I’m bad at blogging? Well, I’m really bad at blogging, haha.

Things have been busy though. School has started, still doing projects on the weekends, keeping pretty occupied…

Halloween is a week away…’tis the season to face your greatest fears…

I’ve always been massively afraid of spiders. Ugh, they give me the creeps.

This little guy might be my only exception…

Time is flying…

Well, I survived my first week of Cosmetology School, but unfortunately I’m out sick today with a cold.

Hopefully I’ll recover and get back to the swing of things tomorrow…

In the meantime… ’tis the season for spooks.

Has everybody figured out their costumes yet? I’m still thinking of ideas…
