I'm Going To Mexico!!!

So for those of you who don’t know already, I’m taking a vacay and going to Mexico for my winter break….. well, actually half of my winter break. I’m going for two weeks!!! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about going. I haven’t been there in years. I’m ready to experience Mexico in a different way. My parents would take me and my sisters to Mexico about every 2 years when I was younger, but I haven’t gone in about 10 years!!!
The reason I say it will be a different experience is because I will be going with just my sisters. Now that we are all older and are able to travel on our own it will most definitely be a different experience. Of course we will stop by and visit my lovely family who lives there but we will also explore new and fun places! Places that we couldn’t go as children.

That being said, I’m super excited and I can’t wait. I will be there Friday night!! I still have yet to pack and my house is a mess at the moment. I did an update video on my YouTube channel and talked about how the last two weeks have been crazy! I have been studying and having sleepless nights and my laundry had been building up. So thanks to me not keeping up with it, I now have a fun filled evening or early morning of doing laundry. If I don’t do laundry, then I don’t have a few pieces of clothes that I want to take with me on my trip. I tried to go shopping but had little luck because I really wasn’t in the mood to shop… don’t you hate when that happens?

But…. I will not let this ruin my excitement. I’m slowly taking my time doing laundry and luckily my apartment has a washer and dryer, so I am able to wash my clothes and have the freedom of watching TV or surfing the internet. So since I have time, I chose to update my blog readers (you lovelies) about my trip and that’s what I’m doing now. Next, I think I will catch up on some YouTube videos that I haven’t had a chance to watch.

I’m going to try my hardest to vlog during my trip but since I haven’t been there in so long, I will try to be in the moment and not use my phone or camera. But I will try to capture a few moments here and there.

Okay guys! I will leave you with that update since I have a ton of stuff to do by tomorrow afternoon! Yay!! Mexico!! Can’t wait!! Talk to you guys next year ;)
Happy Holidays

New Year New Me?!?

So, I wanted to start off by expressing my deep apologies for not being active on my blog since this past summer! I've been really busy with school and my youtube channel that I started in May! I love expressing myself through my facebook, instagram and my youtube channel, but sometimes doing it through writing seems a lot more easier than photos, videos or short statues'.

Many of you don't know this, but yet some do, but I've gained about 25 to 30 pound this year! My weight has been juggling a lot lately and for the last few months it has remained at my current weight. I'm not totally unhappy with my weight but I would love to go back to the size that I once was. When my weight was juggling back and forth was when I was working out and eating healthy. But then, all of sudden I would give up and stop going to the gym, I felt that it was useless and I wasn't getting any results and then I would gain a few pounds.
On top of that I have been really stressed out with school lately and I would reach for junk food as my comfort food to help ease my stressed out self and make me continue on with whatever task I had at the time. Then I work out again loose some weight, but it wasn't long before I would gain weight back. 

This past week, I had the opportunity to go visit my family. My sister who is a couple years younger than I has been religiously going to the gym. I mean 5 days a week a few hours a day. Her and her husband go and have not made a habit out of ditching the gym. Trust me, they make sure they go get their workout sesh! After all, their gym is open 24/7!! I noticed how toned and fit my sister and brother-in-law were which made me feel unhappy about the way I looked.

Let's be honest! Guys, unless their workout beasts eat whatever they want when they want, and my boyfriend is no exception. When he totally gave up on going to the gym that's when if rubbed off on me. I don't want to make any excuses.... but really.... that's really when I stopped going to the gym. I felt unmotivated. It didn't help that he told me that I was beautiful each and everyday. Had he not told me that I might have felt a little motivation to get up and go to the gym.... i'm not saying that he shouldn't tell me he loves me and thinks I'm beautiful because I gained weight, a guy who truly loves you no matter what should always let you know you're beautiful. 
His eating habits were also rubbing off on me!! and I'm talking bad eating habits! I learned to eat just because he said it was time to eat, but not because I was hungry. I wanted to spend time with my significant other and if it meant enjoying some yummy food together, than why not?!

Fast forward to my thanksgiving break! As I spent time with my sister, I noticed her eating habits. She would eat if she was hungry. If anyone asked her, "Hey let's go get a bite to eat," she would tell it like it is. "I'm not hungry." She would of course not miss out on lunch date, but instead would enjoy a drink while I ate. I also noticed that her portions were smaller. Not significantly smaller, but smaller. That right there made me realize that I have been serving myself larger portions and eating all my food, because I hate wasting food! I realized that I had to take back control of my life. If I'm not happy and just "ok" I need to actually do something about it. I need to control how much I eat and when I eat!

I talked to my boyfriend, and he himself said that he also needed to get back in shape. So we decided that we would help motivate each other and go to the gym together!

Today is really the first day I have started this so called new diet per se, or a lifestyle! I woke up and made myself a cup of coffee and a bagel, because guess what? I'm hungry!!! I'm one to always eat breakfast because I wake up really hungry! It's 7:30am as I type this and I usually don't eat again until 12:30pm on Mondays! But today I will only eat if i'm actually hungry.

We are finally in the month December!!! With December comes food! Lots of it!! So I won't officially start my new lifestyle until the new year, but I will begin to practice so that when New Year's comes, I'm all set and ready and it won't be hard for me to follow through on my goal!

Blood Moon Ohhh My!

So tonight around 10:30pm my boyfriend and I decided to hunt for the moon. Luckily we didn't have to leave the comfort of our apartment and were able to slide open our porch door and pull out our camera and record the so called, "Blood Moon!"

I was excited because I'd been hearing about this "Moon" for the last two weeks on my social media sites as well as on the news. So I was really looking forward to it.

My boyfriend and I witnessed the lunar eclipse happen the moon began as a white moon and slowly it began to show a shade of blue as the eclipse began to occur. It really did look blue. I was a little bummed at first because I thought the moon was supposed to turn red, blood red for that matter.

I'm an impatient person, so I kept on switching back and fourth from working on my homework assignments to gazing at the moon. I was even multi-tasking (even more) by watching the lunar eclipse live.

Eventually, the moon was darkened by the shadows of the sun and appeared red. Well, not totally red, I would say more of an orange color maybe brown dust color. But it was definitely not white and shiny anymore. I was in awe and I even caught it on tape!

I am just so grateful that I was able to witness and experience this lunar eclipse along with everyone else who stayed up to catch a glimpse of it. I felt honored that I was able to see this "Moon" with my own eyes. It's different seeing it for yourself than seeing it on screen. It's just a mind-blowing experience. It was AMAZING!! Hope you guys were able to watch it in person too.

Here is my "Blood Moon" short video clip. Hope you guys like it! 

Besitos xo

What I have been up to...

I'm really, really bad at blogging, but I do update my instagram daily, so if you haven't followed me yet, please follow me at: intstagram.com/baibee87xo.

I have a ton of assignments I need to be doing right now, specifically one that is due today at 1pm. However, I did take a little break from that to update my blog. So, this past weekend, I went to LAS VEGAS baby!! Ohhh my god!! It was super duper fun and I got to do so many things! I'm planning on making a video and posting it on my channel, but that won't be until this weekend or maybe next weekend. I have 2 papers to write and an exam this Friday. In addition, I have a presentation I need to prepare for that will be on April 21st I believe. Ohhhh my! 

And to top it all off, poor little me caught a bug and am now sick with the flu and my bf as well. But, I can't complain too much, I did have fun in Vegas and that's probably where I caught this awful bug, but now I must deal with it and do what I have to do. 

Thanks for reading guys, I will also write a blog about my trip to Vegas soon, and will post lots and lots of pix.

So, what did I do for Spring Break you may ask?.....

First off, I wanted to apologize for not being able to write a post on here. I know I said I would at least post once a day even if it was a one sentence line. However, life happened. And with life I have no control. My professors just seemed to be giving me lots of assignments and then I also had to go shopping and try to find outfits for my spring break.

My spring break was last week and I must say it did go by fast! I did feel as though I was gone from school for the longest time. Nonetheless, I really needed a break from school and studying and papers. I also needed to get out of Chico, so I went back home.

I went back home and my siblings and I took a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe. We rented a really, really nice condo. On Saturday we went sledding, sightseeing and played in the snow and on Sunday we went snowboarding..at least attempted to snowboard....

I have been trying to keep up with making youtube videos, it's something that really makes me happy, I like making videos. Today I was able to create a vlog and I just uploaded the video. I pretty much talk about my spring break and what I did. I encourage you guys to check my video out, Spring Break Vlog, I've been playing with different features on my iMovie app. and it's just been a really fun time. I can't wait to do more different types of videos.



Thank you for reading my blog!! 
You guys rock!!

So Much Positive Feedback

Hey beautiful people! Yesterday after I posted my blog where I gave more details
about my internship I got a lot of positive feedback!!

I was so pleased to see that a lot of people were supporting me with this tough
subject. It really is considered a taboo subject here in America and a lot of
people are wearing blinders where they don't see and don't want to see that this
is affecting people everywhere. It could be your neighbors, your child's teacher
even your best friend. A lot of people don't come forward that they have been
sexually assaulted because they feel at fault and feel ashamed. When really they
were at the wrong place at the wrong time. Society has brainwashed us to blame
the victims and point fingers saying things like, "She was asking for it, she
wore that short dress!" But really, the person to blame is the perpetrator for
not controlling their impulses. Women shouldn't be afraid to wear a sexy outfit
when they are going out to a night club or be afraid to walk at night. The best
way to attempt to stop rape cases from increasing is to be aware. The media has
taught all of us that women want to be submissive and want "it"! But we need to
step back and look at the big picture and see that these individuals who have
been molested and/or raped are suffering and turn to drugs and alcohol and
become homeless. They don't just become homeless, they have gone through
something so horrendous that it has made them walk away from being themselves
and totally check out. This in turn affects our communities because the now
homeless addicts are stealing from common people who think of them as a waste of
space.

As a person who has become aware about this important matter, I'm helping spread 
the word. I ask that you too help by telling your friends and family, help spread like the ripple effect :)

A Little About My Internship

So for those of you who don't know, I'm attending college and working my way to attain a B.A. in Psychology. I want to possibly get a minor in Criminal Justice, but I haven't quite decided yet if that's what I want to do. I took it upon myself to search for an internship job that would help me get the experience that I would need once I graduate. After looking around I did find one that would give me the experience I would need and it was just a really good opportunity for me. I chose to be an intern with the Rape Crisis Intervention Center.

At first I was a little skeptical, it is a subject that is not very much talked about in our society and so that scared me a little bit. Also, I would have to commit a lot of my time to it, without getting paid, 6 months with 36 hrs each month worth of commitment. So in order for me to start working on the Rape Crisis Line I had to do 55 hours of training. Which is acceptable, since I had no knowledge really about how to help a person who is in crisis. 

During the training I learned so much. I also met lots of willing and committed interns who were going through the same training as I was, which was a relief in a way. I wasn't going to be doing this alone. The training wasn't easy, it was actually hard at some points, especially on Saturdays. We discussed subjects that were very hard to discuss, and I'll admit I did find myself crying at times along with my fellow interns. I didn't realize that rape was such a HUGE issue here in America, and in the world. It just really opened my eyes and made it more real for me. People's bodies are being violated everyday and some of these people who go through these tragic events will never be the same again. Their life changes. That was what got me the most, how could someone go and take all of a person's power and violate them in their most personal space? 

It just disgusts me and it made it clear for me, that this is going to be a great opportunity and that I would not only get experience but also be able to make a difference and help a lot of people in my community.

Yesterday was my last day of training and now I will begin taking phone calls on the Rape Crisis Hotline. I got my badge now, that I can wear when I have to go on out calls to the hospital, police station or court. I also got a certificate that verifies that I'm now a, "Rape Crisis Center Advocate." I'm just so proud of myself for doing this and holding on until the very end, because I'll be the first to say it, I almost quit twice. It was that difficult! Now I can help those in need and get hours towards my internship and it will all be rewarding to me. 

If you guys ever want to talk to me about your own situation, I just wanted you to know that I'm here for you, and I can loan you a hearing ear, not through the Rape Crisis Center, but as a friend. Because, from my training, now I know what it's like for someone to have to go through this. 

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you guys have a safe weekend!

Kisses xoxo

Below I have included picture of my really cool badge and my certificate




Here is the back side of my badge. It just has my picture so that hospital staff or police officers can make sure i'm Rosey when I go on out calls. Also state some codes that protect me as an advocate and state what I can do.



This is the front side of my badge, pretty much just has my name and states that I'm an Advocate for the Rape Crisis Center :)



I apologize for the picture, I look very blah, it was taken on a Saturday morning during one of the trainings.



Here is my certificate, stating that I completed the State Certified Sexual Assault Counselor program for Advocate Training!

I'm just really excited that I can start working and start helping people.
