May Challenge(s) Day 8!: My Sky and Pet Peeves

You know what’s tough? Taking a picture of your sky before class, only to come out to a completely different day! That’s exactly what’s been happening today. All this week, actually! I’m not quite sure what’s going on with the weather in Southern California, but I’m not entirely sure I don’t like it. It’s almost like playing a guessing game! haha which makes it all the more awesome sometimes. One thing for sure is that, if the day starts off hot or is hot at any point, you know it doesn’t stay the same for too long! I guess it’d be better to be able to wear shorts and a tshirt than carrying around a jacket all the time, though.  Here’s my view from the top of one of our buildings!

Pet Peeves

I don’t feel like I have too many pet peeves.  There are times that frustrations do build up, though, and I’m left with being annoyed at small things. Totally unfair, I know. But hey, I’m sure it’s happened to most people at least once, no? Have you ever had those moments when you’re asking someone to do something and all they do is stare blankly and disinterestedly at you? Yeah, I get that. A lot. It happens almost every other weekend that I go home, mainly from my youngest brother.  He’ll just sit there and… nothing. I’m pretty sure I know what’s going on through his head at the point, but it’s just so bothersome and why can’t he just do what is being asked of him? There’s another thing that my family tends to do that annoys me.  Have any of you ever had those moments where you’re starting to talk about something that you feel needs to be said, especially when the people around you don’t seem to understand or are against and they tell you to ‘relax’ or ‘don’t get mad/ in a bitchy mood’? It’s like they completely squash what you were saying and make only their point important. Not only that, but by saying ‘relax’ or ‘don’t get mad/in a bitchy mood,’ the natural response is to disagree, which only makes the person say it more and causes you to get angry.

Smaller pet peeves would be things like leaving a mess in communal areas, when someone thinks its okay to interrupt my shows for whatever reason, when people think it’s okay to tell me what to do, what I should and should not be wearing, who I should or should not be talking to, what I can and cannot eat, that I should be more “ladylike” and not act the way I naturally do. Really, any time when someone tries to rule over my own decisions. Then there are issues that get me upset. I can’t call them pet peeves because it would be dismissing the issues and calling them annoyances and therefore not worthy of the attention they deserve. I have a problem with people who think they can point out any one and say they’re a) too fat, b) dressing like a ‘slut’, c) wearing clothes ‘not meant for their body type,’ and people that try and assume anything out of someone else’s life based on the way they look or act or do, or because they just so happen to be walking around at night. Then there are times when people talk religion with me. I don’t mind talking about religion, but these people are usually of another faith and are more interested in getting their own point across without respecting my own beliefs.  That’s really all I ask for–that they be respectful and remember that our beliefs, while somewhat similar, are still different and no matter what, there’s no way you’ll ever change them.

There are others, of course. I just don’t feel like thinking about them, because my day is going well so far and I don’t want to dwell on negative things. Hope this wasn’t that bad a read for all of you. I’m not looking for some agreements on what I wrote because then it’ll seem more like I’m gearing up for battle against people who do what I’ve described.

May Challenge(s) Day 2!: Breakfast and Favorite Quote(S)

I’m not exactly one to eat breakfast, but for this challenge I thought I’d make something fancy. Here you have, my hard boiled eggs and toast! Bon Apetit! Haha

Quotes.. I’m not one to really keep quotes.  There is one YouTuber that I feel is quoteable, though. Her name is Carrie Hope Fletcher.  I absolutely love her, she is all about being herself, and trying to be a positive force in her viewer’s lives.  When asked, Carrie says in a video that one of the ways she’s able to stay so positive is by thinking and remembering we all are stars. She goes on to say that, ‘scientifically speaking, the destruction and explosion of a star is called a supernova. From the shockwave of the explosion, new stars are created, then those explode and create new stars, and so on so forth.  Every atom of our bodies and every thing around was first created in the explosion of a star. Knowing that [she’s] connected with the universe in that way makes her feel less of a small, insignificant little person. She may be one small person, but [she’s] part of something huge.’

There are a lot more things she says that I’d love to put on here, but it requires going through loads of videos and I just don’t have the time for that right now. Still, if you’d like to check her out, I’ll put a link below.  Or you can just click on the links.

Thanks for reading! You can go ahead and leave a comment below or a like. Tell me what you think of her videos! Are there any quotes you’d like to share?

If you wish to start your own challenge, let me know. I’ll gladly follow you. I’ll see you guys next time. 😀

May Challenge(s) Day 1!: Selfie and 5 Random Facts

This is me. Hi. Hello! I’m guessing this is the first photo you’ve seen of me, eh? Lookie! I am a human afterall! I added another photo because, why the heck not? Silly, because I dislike how perfect selfies can seem. ’tilt your head this way, elongate your neck, pucker your lips just like so’ It’s tiring, and overused (not that I do it quite like that. Either way, I like normal selfies, too! Just not as fun.) So I give you two! These were actually taken earlier in the day, after coming back from my classes at the uni.

5 Random Facts!

1. I love pens. If you read two posts back from this one, you might have read that I have a habit of breaking the clips off pens accidentally. You may have also noticed that I have a slightly crazy love for these things, and that there’s nothing I value more in stationary than a beautiful pen with beautifully smooth black ink.

2. I am an art student. This isn’t something that I’ve talked about on here yet. I haven’t shown my work on here, either. This is partly to do with me wanting to start a mini-series on here once I get comfortable enough with my drawing tablet. I do have a character in the works that I may or may not use for this mini-series. It may also be a progress sort of thing? I’m not completely sure yet.

3. I’m originally from Texas. I moved to [another state] when I was about 16 with my mom and brothers.  I’d love to say we moved out here to follow my acting/singing career, but no. We did come out here to find new opportunities, though. I think we’ve done well. I probably wouldn’t be an art student if not for that. I definitely appreciate the fact that I can go anywhere with public transportation. We didn’t have that in Texas. We also didn’t have the beaches so nearby. It’s amazing, honestly. Still, I do miss Texas and everything associated with my childhood there.

4. I have a stuffed Sloth. My youngest brother brought him back for me from Costa Rica. He went with the church for World Youth Day in Brazil last year. He’s so sweet. 🙂 I forgot Slothy’s name. I did give him one a while ago, but it’s been too long since I’ve had to think on it. Maybe my brother knows. Slothy likes being a creep and staying in the background. He also likes flowers and playing the ukulele. Maybe I’ll introduce him sometime.

5. I’m a princess. At least, that’s what the birthday balloon mom brought a few weeks back says. Funny story though, in my family on my father’s side I’m the only girl and oldest girl of…. I don’t know how many male cousins. For some reason none of my aunts were able to conceive a girl. Same with my mom, I’m the only girl in the family of four children. When I was younger and my grandparents on my father’s side had their ranch, they’d call me ‘Reina de los Martinez’ or ‘Queen of the Martinez.’ The ranch was called ‘Rancho los Martinez’ so I’m assuming that’s what they meant I was queen of, as well as over my cousins. I don’t mind that one bit! haha

 

And there you have it! My selfies and five random facts! I’m not sure when my next post will be as I’ll be travelling the entirety of this weekend, including tomorrow Friday. Not all day, of course, but I’m taking a roadtrip to the northern part of the state for my cousin’s baby’s baptism. I’ll be sure to double up and write all the posts though! I’ll finish this challenge! [insert determined pose]

If you want to comment on anything written, you can go ahead and do that now. If you’re doing this challenge with me, go ahead and let me know! It doesn’t matter if you’re late or not. You choose your own pace and days. See you next time!

A Welcoming

Ladies, gents, people that don’t fall under the gender binary rules..I give you, my first post! -Applauds and bows- thank you, thank you. I suppose this first post is where I shall begin my introduction, yes?

I’ll start this by saying I was led here by my lovely cousins who have started (or continued) their own blogs on here. I have been playing the tumblr beat for quite some time now, but its so easy to get lost there among all the other posts. Do you know how hard it is to not reblog things you absolutely love?!

Anyway, I figured I’d had enough of resisting blog sites such as this. Through this blog, you will be slowly learning who I am, what I’m about. My name is Lyanne, but you may call me Wandreer if you’d like. It’s really all the same to me. I am female, in my early twenties. By some standards I’m still a baby, by other’s I’m ancient. I’d like to say I’m in my prime. Even then, I know that life in any age is at its prime, because there is nothing more magnificent than life at its current. The good, the bad, that which may seem insignificant or life-altering…it all adds up into this wonderful person you are. I believe I have experienced a lot in my twenty-some years of life. All these experiences have shaped me into the person I am now, the person you’ll slowly begin learning about. The stuff I haven’t experienced, I learn of in other ways. Likewise, I hope to get to know you bit by bit, too.
