3.8 Earthquake

I do not have the fondest memories of earthquakes. Who does, anyway?!
I woke up around 3:18 AM to a 3.8 Los Angeles earthquake. Everything was rattling. Everything was shaking. I was, too. And it's not because I'm such a coward that I started crying... but because I had no one in bed beside me--no mom, no sister. I was alone and awake and scared of what could have happened. Injury... I can take that. But death. No.
You see, on April 2010, I felt that ~7 magnitude earthquake centered somewhere in the California-Mexico border. I lived in San Diego then. And there were A LOT of aftershocks which lasted for days. And I was scared... so so scared.
So, yeah, I cannot go back to sleep. I'm too paranoid to even go back to sleep. Life is oh so precious. You never know what happens next. We could have been in the news or something had it been a massive earthquake. Something. It's crazy.
To end this... I just want to say: I love you Mama, Papa! I love you my dearest sisters! I miss you all so badly. I wish you were here so I can hug you.

baker beach

This was the first time we've actually been to Baker Beach. The place gave us a 'new' view of the Golden Gate Bridge. STILL. NOT. SICK. OF. THE. BRIDGE.  In fact, I will be back in September before the fall quarter begins.

childhood, i miss you

i like this picture. it’s not pretty, i know… but something about this picture reminds me about things from the past. happy things. sad things. i don’t really know. i wish i can find the words to describe what i’m feeling right now. lonely. alone. empty. perhaps alone. or maybe still in denial that i’m no longer a teenager… because being young is temporary. or maybe because i want to go somewhere else but can’t at the moment. these are emotions i don’t know how to describe… 
it’s hard when you’re the youngest in the family and your older siblings are getting ready to settle down… you know that feeling. and being the baby of the family, i’m still in school and unsure about what the future holds. it’s hard living alone for three months. it’s hard wanting something so badly. 
i wish i were a writer… because i have no clue why the heck i’m feeling like this right now. and because my writing sucks.

pacifica pier

It was a foggy afternoon in Pacifica and not to mention windy and fuh-reezing cold. We stopped by this pier anyway... just to kill some time.

Colorful houses--I'd like to own one. Perhaps paint it mint green or pink or light blue or purple.

negative space is beautiful

Negative space: space around and between the subject(s) of an image. 
Negative space is oh so beautiful, in my opinion.
