Hey Stranger

Just when you thought you got rid of me... i come back.

Hey there strangers as you can see i am popping my head in to say "Hi" and that i miss you all soooo much. I find myself going through withdraw. I miss Reese's funny post, J's comments, heck everyone's comments. Desiree's, Marissa, Monica, Janette, Tannia, Kim, Jessica and Joanne's, Girl's encouragement, Mari's writting, Caro's writing.... Elle and Irene i miss you ladies also...damn i just miss all of you guys.

A lot has happened since i last wrote on here and from looking around here today i can see that i have alot of catching up to do. (Damn J you sure have been up to alot)

I dropped my American goverment class because eh i don't need it for my degree so i *should* have some more time to be on here again.

My padre was sick this week so i had to run the family business. Other then that and going to school nothing new has happened.

Well i should update you on what when on the last two weeks.

Right after my birthday i went through some sort of an emotional breakdown. It was the weirdest thing ever. If someone would have told me that was going to happen i would have canceled my birthday. Why didn't anyone tell me that this would happen to me once i turned 24? All these emotions just hit me at once and it was just to much for me to handle. So some how i tried to work my way through it and go to school and this week running a business. It's been nuts out here i tell you.

Bueno i am doing better and some how i made it out alive and in one piece. I realized something's during my two week breakdown and i let go of others. I never knew just how close Caro and I are until she was gone for those two weeks and i had no one to talk too. I missed her sooo much it's not even funny. Pero we made it. Ha Caro? some how we made it.

I ended the whole Adrian thing because in the end i was just not feeling him. He is a great friend but he was just not doing it for me in the boyfriend department. So i am still accepting applications if any of you know any cute single guys who happen to look like Daddy Yankee or The Rock send them my way :)

I never got that kiss and in a way i am happy about that since now Adrian and I are still just friends even though he claims i broke his heart ( yeah right..i don't believe him) he says i was/ am the only girl that he could ever see himself with for the long haul. Aww que lindo... he is a sweet guy its just to bad that i don't feel the same way.

No new guys to report about. Umm let see what else...*thinking* oh yes school is killing me or it was. I LOVE my music history and childrens lit class but i hated my american goverment class. I was soo happy when i found out i could drop it. I was checking and i should graduate in Dec. Woot go me!

I have to go to a wedding tomorrow. I really, really don't want to go to this wedding. This girl we know her name is S is getting married tomorrow. The thing is we ALL hate her. I mean no one can stand her, but she yet invited us (why i don't know) so now my parents are saying that we have to go. I have tried to get out of it but they are just not hearing it. So since i can't get out of going to this wedding i went out and bought some new clothes got my hair did ( i now have red highlights) and tomorrow morning i am getting my nails done. Shit if i have to go to this thing i am going to look good.

Ay que mas.... well it looks like thats about it. I am going to go spend some time this week reading everyones blog and commenting. I also have to read the 300 and something emails waiting for me on yahoo. The sucias have been busy :)

I missed you all... oh go check out Caro's blog she update with pic's from D.R. OoOoO i just remembered something else Caro comes home on tuesday...YAY!!! i am so excited. I can't wait! Caro when you come home we are so haveing a parking lot convo.

I am not going to spell check this and i know there are alot of grammatical mistakes but right now i don't care.

At the bottom of the lake.

At the bottom of the lake lies my family’s history...or at least it will once they build the damn thing.

So why is at the bottom of the lake? Why is this a problem I will tell you.

Some families pass their history down in the form of a family heirloom...for some families its jewelry, a doll, quilts, clothes, etc ,for my family is was land thousands and thousands of acres of land in a beautiful valley in the Dominican Republic which is where my family is from. So what does this have to do with the lake and my family’s history at the bottom of it?

The Dominican Republic is having trouble being able to supply electricity to all of its 8 million citizens, especially to the second largest city of the country, Santiago (which is about an hour away from the little town that my family is from called Inoa). So the government’s solution to this problem was hydro-electricity. For this they will have to build a man made lake, and surprise, surprise, where do they chose to make this lake about an hour away from Santiago in a little town named Inoa, in other words on our land.

So as you can see the problem with this is that it’s our land. Now yes they will pay my family for the land, but that is not the point it’s not just about the land, it’s about my families history. My family’s history is so intertwine with this land that it’s so hard to separate the two.

This land has been in my family for over 150 years. It belongs to my great-grandfather who gave it to my grandmother on her wedding day. It’s the land that gave birth to my mother and my 17 aunts and uncles. Its the land that saw my mother grow, its the land that saw her leave only to return later on with her own family. It’s the land that I was taken to as an infant. It’s the land of summer vacation. It’s the land that holds so many of my childhood memorizes.

The land where I have learned so much about my family, the land that keeps teaching me so many new things every time I return to it. It’s the land that calls me late at night when I should be sleeping, the land that runs thru my blood. The land that has made me who I am. The land that keeps my family together because no matter what is going on we always return to it. It’s a place where the new is mixed with the old. It’s the only thing that keeps my grandparents's my home and now it will lie at the bottom of the lake.

The Dominican Bachlorette: The Birthday Party

So our bachlorette goes to get ready for her birthday party and her phone rings.

Karla: " Hello"
B: " Karla, Where are you at?"
Karla: " Um at my house getting ready why?"
B: " What? the party was suppose to start an hour ago."
Karla: " What no one told me that, in fact no one told me anything?"
B: (sight) " What no one told you what time the party was?"
Karla: " eh no"
B: " Freaken Adrian."
B: " Let me call you back."
Karla: " Umm ok."

Karla in her head " and this is why we never let the men organize the parties"

So a few more phone calls like that later and Karla goes to her birthday celebration at Adrian's house.

At first the party is pretty slow and boring.

Before leaving for the party Karla gets in to an argument with her mother and so she is pissed when she arrives at the the party the boys take it as Karla being mad at them but she wasn't so at first everyone thought the boys had failed because they thought that Karla hated the party and was not having a good time.

Anyways so after a few drinks Karla is feeling better and the party get's under way. After a while everyone is having a good time and by 1 am everyone is on their way home.

Adrian bought me some nice roses as did my primo X.

Still no beso from Adrian but that is another story and you guys will just have to wait for the next installment of the dominican bachlorette.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!

Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me,

Happy Birthday dear Karlaaaaa. Happy Birthday to me.

Wednesday, June 01, 2005

So now for an update on everything else.

Ok well you guys know all about my so-called love life so I thought I would update you on very thing else.

Tomorrow is my last day at work…WOOT! I love being a teacher. Here I come summer vacation. …Lol. Tomorrow is also my birthday…Yay… I am going to be 24. Damn I am…Adrian is going to go with me to the end of the year party tomorrow. That should be funny having Adrian and G in the same location. I am going to go crazy with all these boys in one

In case you have not checked my profile lately you can now email me…I know you all want to email me…don’t lie you know you So go ahead and do it send me an email.

Caro left for D.R. yesterday. I have her number out there so if there are any messages you want me to pass on to her leave me a comment or umm email me (since now you can) and I will get them to her. I can’t wait till she comes back home because I know that she is going to have some amazing stories to tell.

We were all going to go to the Purple Martini tomorrow night to celebrate E and my birthday’s (Yes B’s wife and I were born on the same day.) But instead the boys are going to throw us (E, Jenna who was born on June 5 and me) a (Not so much a surprise anymore) Surprise Birthday party on Saturday. I wish my suicas and blog friends lived out here that way you guys could come to my fiesta.

The party is going to be at Adrian’s house and it is going to be a Barbeque kind of thing. How do I know this you ask? Well I was hanging out yesterday with B and Adrian (B bought a motorcycle) and they um let it slip. So I know that there is going to be a Barbeque get together but something else is going down and they won’t tell me.

B mentioned something about Tiffany’s and I had to remind him not to play with me like that. He knows that two of my greatest loves are handbags and jewelry with shoes and books coming in tied at third. I am a girl damn it you can’t mention Tiffany’s in front of me and then shut up tighter then a clam when I ask you “ umm what about Tiffany’s?” You got to give me something. Ok now that I have gotten over that.

Oh my nephew now has a blog as well. Everyone say “ Hi Gabe” and then go check out his blog.

Umm let me see what else….Oh yeah I might and that is a BIG MIGHT be going to New York in July for two weeks. I had plan on going for one week but my cousin asked me to go for two weeks. I really, really, really want to go but umm we will see what happens.

Oh it seems to be that I have lost some weight the other day E (B’s wife) said to B “ Karla is looking good she has lost some weight.” To which I responded with an “Umm, really? Have I?” So I guess I must have lost some weight I don’t know for sure because I have not been back to WW much less been on a scale in a loooong time so I have no way of really knowing but um thanks for the compliment E.

Ok I know this entry is all over the place. So I am going to take that as my cue to end this entry here.
