When Nightmares Turn into Reality 

As many of you have seen Americas new fate, we begin this new era. Americans are afraid, sad, and really..devastated. We made jokes of this in the past but now this is our fate. It is no longer funny as people fear their lives and equality in America. This morning when I heard the news I shed a tear. Our new president who is a racist bigot let me remind you who belittles women and does not want rights for the LGBTQ community. All day I have avoided social media, fleeing the truth of what has happened. Tonight, I looked on social media once again and seen dozens and dozens of stories of racial discrimination. As a person who is an American  born citizen but is half Mexican I know my looks change people’s perspective of who I am. Racism in America has been hidden for so many years but now is showing its true colors again despite our new president. Our president who enables these people and pretty much tells them hey it’s okay to be racist. When it is not. I fear the equality for my niece and nephew who will have to face this head on. Today, my sister told me she had to explain to her children what racism is, that truly breaks my heart. I hope Americans stay strong and fight for our rights. Remember, we are all equal no matter the color, sex, origin, etc. We are one.

Mexico? Life?

Hello hello!

How is everyone? Good? Living? Recently I spoke of how I really don’t know what I’m doing. I had a thought of moving to Mexico…then an issue arose. I found it is very hard for people/Americans to find a job there and if they do it probably won’t pay well. You usually do not see Americans going to work in Mexico because of this issue. Mostly for vacation. The cost of living in DF is kind of high compared to other places in Mexico. You can relate it to living in Los Angeles but with its own spin. My job hunt ended rather…well you can say disappointing. For now I think my best bet will just be visiting as much as I can. Maybe, live there for a short period of time. Who knows!

Thought of the day: just because things don’t work out, doesn’t mean you should give up.

Chaos

Hello!

It has been some while since I have written, two months roughly. Right now my life is in a bit of a chaos. The high from traveling is no more and I am beginning to see reality. Right now my travel plans are on hold as I am unsure of where I will be going or if I am going. I think at this point in my life I have many things to figure out, then maybe I can travel. No matter where you run or go your problems will follow.

I think all college graduates go through this, an initial reaction of wtf am I doing with my life? It’s one of those things that is not talked about much, people just say enjoy your years of college as it will be the best years of your life. When you’re in college you think no way how can this be the best years of my life? Quizzes, tests, research that’s no fun (sarcasm). When you look back though you will realize it really was, the best years of your life. College was one of the best learning experiences and I made life long friends that made it even better.

Now, I can only hope and pray for the best to come. As my future is unknown but I will keep looking for what is right. Remember, always do what makes you happy!

America the home of the free…

Hello ladies and gentlemen! 

Wow how is everyone?! Great I hope! I am now back home in the United States. It has been almost one week home and I am more ready then ever to go back on my adventure. However, we all know that’s not how life flows. Of course I have to go get a job and work for a while then back on the road I go! Here is some photos from my trip. Also, if you’re reading this comment if you want me to write about anything more specific. Places, food, tacos jk, just let me know! 


Time 

Time where has it gone? 

So much has changed for me in the last year. I lost people and gained some people. My mistakes have taught me to know better. I am glad everything happened as I wouldn’t be who I am today. My stay here in Mexico is almost up, meeting my family for the first time, only speaking Spanish it was amazing. I will miss them but I will be back. My life will no longer be the same in two months. I am excited and scared for the future. But have high hopes for great travels and meeting new people. 

Shout out to my few best friends and family for being the real mvps! You will always be in my heart and be with me wherever I go. I am thankful for you all. So sappy I know. Haha. So cheers to lost pathways and new beginnings. 

Love, 

Alanna

My blog is a direct reflection of what’s going on in my mind. People say to be a successful blogger you must target a certain audience and interests. I must say as a new blogger I have much ways to go. However, I enjoy writing and using my blog for whatever reflections I am having. Really I don’t care if I have a few followers or such. What matters here is that I enjoy writing and I am more than happy to share my experiences with others. I am not directing my blog to any certain audience just if you like what you see, feel free to keep reading. 

 I think people these days are so indulged in trying to be successful that they forget the real reason behind things. Remember what is important to you and don’t care so much what others think. Do what makes you happy. As in life you can never make everyone happy. Many will want you to live the life they want or always dreamed of, so stay true to yourself. Blogging makes me happy. So, what makes you happy?

Mesmerize Me 

When you look back at life no matter your age what do you think? Do you wish things would have worked differently? The thing is, our lives all have a purpose. Some are written and some are unseen. God, has a plan for us all. Feeling lost in life is just us trying to find our next step. The step to lead us to higher grounds of understanding and purpose. In our lifetimes we will love, we will loose but we will never stop growing. We will learn to forgive, protect our beliefs, and remember to get up when you think you have lost all control. 

Life, is a journey, it is a unwritten book. Just remember follow your dreams and instincts. Be kind to others even when those are unkind to you. Greatness will find you when you achieve self fulfillment and understanding of yourself. As I hope someday my words will have positive influence on at least one person. I enjoy making others feel happy. 

Much love, 

Alanna
