So of course it’s Father’s Day and my dad isn’t hanging out with me. I tried to talk to him but he never responded back. It’s like now that I’m grown up (or as he sees it I already turned 18 so he doesn’t need me anymore) he doesn’t care about me. I love my dad even though we never talk. It still doesn’t make it any easier knowing that he wants nothing to do with me. I guess there’s just some family that’ll be absent from your life. He doesn’t like any of my life choices. Any time we do talk all he does is complain about me. That I’m irresponsible because a broke a couple of cameras in middle school, that all I do is hangout with my friends, etc. He doesn’t even know me anymore. He keeps this idea that I’m the same teenage girl in highschool. He hates that I’m in college. He’s always telling me to quit, that it’s a waste of money and time. I should just get a job at McDonald’s because at least I’m making money and not spending it. He acts like an education is equivalent to buying clothes or something. All I know is that if I ever have kids, if their dad doesn’t want to be around. That I’m going to be like my mom and fill in both spots that best I can and always be supportive.

I found a new series on Netflix called Arrow. It’s quickly became one of my new favorites. There’s only 2 seasons on Netflix, but altogether so far there’s 3 and a fourth renewed that’s set to premiere in the fall. It’s based on a Marvel comic. So there’s this guy. His name is Oliver, he went on a boat ride with his dad and girlfriends sister. Unfortunately the boat sunk, in whats thought to be an accident. His mother actually set the whole thing up. Anyways he gets lost on an island for 5 years. Having to change his lifestyle from billionaire to survival mode. When he returns he vows to take down the list his father asked him to. People who are trying to destroy the city for money.  Every super hero has something they’re known for. Olivers is his bow and arrow skills. He also wears a hood so they nicknamed him, the hood. People see him as a hero for helping with crime. The cops however see him as a criminal. In the war against bad guys, the hood stands alone, or so it may seem. Even though he’s the fore front, he has a team. Felicity, a young blonde girl from who graduated from MIT. She’s the brain behind the operation. She handles everything on the computer. From tracking, to lab samples, and more. John Diggie is their other brawn. In case Arrow can’t do the job alone his side kick isn’t too far behind.

Started off my morning right with sleeping in. Cut up fresh organic strawberries, put them in a bowl with organic raspberries and blueberries. My breakfast is usually coffee and fruit. Natures candy is the best candy. The plan for the day is finish my homework, practice the new song I chose for guitar, yoga, and if I have time take my babies for a walk. I’m really excited for next week because I have orientation for CMU Wednesday. I can’t wait to start the next chapter of my life. Hopefully with hard work and determination I can become someone people recognize. I’m tired of people acting like I’m invisible. I went to a mens league hockey game last night. The team I went for lost the championship unfortunately. While the game was going on people kept almost hitting me getting so close acting like they didn’t even notice I was there. Someone hit me with a door, no apology. One guy even stood directly in front of me blocking my view when there was barely anyone at the game, maybe 5 people. Like Gee thank you for picking thee worst spot jack ass.

It’s only been out a couple of days and I’ve already watched the whole season 3 of Orange is the New Black. Now I have to wait a whole year before the next season comes on. It was so good, they added new characters and threw in new curveballs. Stella is one of the new inmates, she’s my new favorite character. Her name in real life is Ruby Rose and she’s an actress/model from Australia. The best part of the new season was that they got new jobs, after the prison gained new management. 30 randomly selected inmates got to get 10 times the pay and sew panties. There was a whole scandal Piper started with her new job. Plus Susanne (commonly known as crazy eyes) writes a book everyone ends up loving it. In the finale they find a whole in the fence and outside there’s a lake everyone starts swimming in.

Blondes have more fun. Or at least that’s what they say. I bleached my hair this afternoon with the help of my friend. My hair was already half blonde, or balayage. Now it’s much lighter, more vibrant. A full-blown blonde. As we were waiting for color to develop we decided to watch Orange is the New Black. The new season (season 3) starts Friday and I couldn’t be more excited. I tend to get really interested in shows that give you an insight to all different backgrounds and perspectives. Piper is the main character along with Alex. They are ex girlfriends in prison. My personal favorite has to be the one they call “crazy eyes“. She always makes me laugh and although I don’t always agree with her actions I think she’s misunderstood. Rosa is also great, in so many ways. One of the funniest moments on the show is when Morello was driving Rosa to her Chemo treatments Morello starts talking about a movie she loves. Turns out its Toy Story, but the way she described it was morbid. I could say something I admire about every one of them, except V. Everyone hates V besides Tastee at first and her friends. They get manipulated by her maternal figure and benefits.

I had a good day. I got an oil change and my tires rotated. My baby is a 2014 navy Jeep Patriot. So while me and my mom waited, we decided to check out the Midland Mall since it’s so close to Feeny. Victoria Secret was having their Semi Annual sale so it was hectic. So many clothes, so many people. Rude too, nobody has manners I swear. Other than that everything else has gone great. I got to spend time with my mom, we went shopping, and got good sales. What’s better than that? I got two new swim suit tops, one white, one black. A new makeup bag and sweatpants as well. Great prices. After we left the mall and picked up my ride we decided to get lunch. Of course we picked Culvers. They have thee best burgers and custard on the planet. The flavor of the day was turtle and cookies n’ cream, had to scoop some of that up. We also got a walk in and I had time to work out. I feel refreshed. Then I got to spend time with my friends and eat tacos.I’d say that’s a win. Put in time for homework as usual. Played with the puppies and watched my new show. Now I’m here and ready for bed. Probably going to have to get a bowl of ice-cream first.

hawaii-five-0

Netflix, the one of many great creations of this generation. Binging Hawaii 5-O is an all day activity today. The episode I’m currently watching is all about one of the main characters Chin. He was investigating his father’s murder, trying to identify what really happened in the past. The flashbacks of his fathers funeral shows a different side of yet another main character Kono, or Chin’s cousin. She used to be a great surfer before a knee injury which made her change career paths. Their family all went into police force. In the flashbacks he tells police he thinks his brother-in-law is the one who murdered his father. They thought it was suspicious that Kono didn’t know anything about Gabriel being involved. Back in the time they’re really in, Chin’s boss Steve got interrogated about Chin covering it up. As well as Chin being interrogated. When Chin finally caught Gabriel in a chase he tells him that he killed his father because “he was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”.  Gabriel was robbing a convince store and Chins father recognized him so he killed him. After he tells him that they get into a fight were it looks like Chin’s about to lose, but of course he makes a come back. Even though he got bribed to let him go he arrested him. The people interrogating Chin think that he has the money since it was never recovered but he doesn’t. In the end of the episode Chin’s on the beach surfing when he meets a pretty girl, his wife.
