Fires are really scary.

My family was evacuated from Diamond Bar. I'm staying at the boyfriend's in Fullerton/Placentia for the day, so we should be okay.. even though there were fires pretty close to his place yesterday.

Past fires have never really been this close to home, not even the ones in Irvine by my mom's house. The firestorm that's spreading to my houses in Diamond Bar is scary because of all the dry brush along both sides of the 57 freeway. I just hope that my family doesn't lose all that we have. My dad's a pretty bad man, but I don't think he deserves to lose our multi-million dollar home that we've been remodeling for almost 2 years. AND my car is at home..

From the reports, it doesn't seem like we'll be able to get home tonight.. so maybe no work tomorrow! haha. That's the one good thing.

And I know that jRose lives in Diamond Bar too. I really hope that you and your family are okay.

My First VIdeo!!

Here is my first successful attempt at a video tutorial of a look. This is a video of a green look I did a couple weeks ago.

I'm open to critiques or advice because I want to make them better in the future! (: Just don't be rude.

Oh and I know that one eye looks bigger than the other. It might be either lighting.. or the fact that one has more green than the other. I didn't realize it until after I was done filming, ugh.. so I fixed it before I took pictures, lol. Well, I swear that I'll be more aware of it next time.

Here you go!

Election Day.

Today is the absolute last day at 8 PM (for Cali readers) for your vote to COUNT!

Today is a monumental day.. and I can't wait to see Obama's name as the winner (: Although early polls have shown that Obama has taken the lead, he still needs EVERY VOTE out there.

Let's make a difference, people (:


I woke up earlier than I usually do just to vote today. I was lucky that my polling place was in my community! You gotta love living in The Country! (: hehe. It was literally less than a mile away, and I got in and out within a matter of 5 minutes. I double inked all of my choices to make sure they would be read. And they had this amazing machine that read the results for you right when you're done.. just to make sure there isn't any vote flipping or bullshit like that! I just hope that today's election doesn't end up rigged like '04.

Well. I'm not telling you to vote for Obama, obviously, but we all know we need change! Maybe McCain can bring it.. but so can Obama. People say that Obama is just feeding a bunch of rhetoric, but I believe that he really wants to make a change, and make it easier to live in America. Whoever you vote for today, just VOTE. But don't forget about your props (:


Btw. I'm not sure if it's entirely related to what I wrote earlier this morning, but I was really upset last night. I stumbled upon a documentary made back in 2004 about the families of fallen soldiers in Iraq. Those brave families read the last letters they received from their loved ones. It literally broke my heart. I had only heard of but not seen a documentary like this.. and it moved me so much. I literally cried for an hour and a half, sitting there watching this heartbreaking film about these families. Soldiers dying at 19, 20, 22.. even 34. These soldiers all had stories, families, and important things they left behind at home. It got me really upset and sobbing, and it brought me back to thoughts of the war. I never really educated myself about the war in Iraq, because it never really touched me before. But after seeing this, I feel like the war wouldn't have happened at all if Bush were not in office. A LOT of things wouldn't be wrong in this country if he wasn't in office.. but it just shows that WE NEED CHANGE. We CANNOT have 4 more years of the last 8. My heart broke for the families that lost their loved ones; I could NEVER imagine losing a husband or brother even after not seeing them for months on end. We need to end this war. We need Obama.
