Here's How To Win Every Single Argument Ever

Hey all! I have been so busy lately. Like...12-hour-shifts busy. But hey, tired nights and early mornings are what I live for sometimes.

I've been writing a lot on the side too and have been trying to make more of a priority out of it. (Will soon once I cut down from 2 jobs to 1 job.)

A lot of my writing is done for other sites, but a site I specifically love writing for is Thought Catalog. My recent article is called Here's How To Win Every Single Argument Ever and was featured on their homepage today.

& i'm callous & i'm cruel to everyone but you;

it has always been this way.

iced green tea with hints of mint and lemongrass
remind me of you.
and it reminds me of the girl i used to be.

every orchestra and choir full of sopranos and tenors
sing the songs we used to sing,

but maybe you're a baritone now
and maybe i've always been an alto.

i still like the words you sing
and how they vibrate through the air
even if you're trying too hard.
{its still cuter than everyone else}

you used to summon the angels with every note
and i used to cry every time you did.

when the curtains would open,
i knew one thing for certain:
my cheeks were blushing more
than each and every rose you would hold that night.

it was probably march or april or may,
but all i remember is my
long chestnut brown hair
with no tangles or tears
touching the wind for you.

i am reminded of you too often
and it feels so wrong
because you are standing right in front of me
laughing like a little kid
dancing for audiences bigger than before
yet i miss the acoustic hymns we used to sing in the small towns we inhabited.

i don't want to write anymore
even if everyone is reading,
unless it's about you.

so i sip on that iced green tea,
trying to take mental notes
of the notes of lemongrass and mint.

i close my eyes and dream of spring.
autumn and winter may make my heart do a temporary dance,
but the spring we bloomed together makes my soul do endless piroquettes.

Ratatouille - RECIPE // naturally vegan!

Ratatouille. I saw the film when it first came out and I remembered how hungry it made me. Then, I saw it in theaters for a special screening again a few months ago and it made me appreciate food in it's purest sense: the taste. To savor it, to enjoy it, to find unique flavors and combinations.

The second time I heard the word 'ratatouille' was in high school French class. We were discussing popular French dishes and I finally found out what ratatouille actually was. Now that I know what it actually is, I can make it. And now that I can make it successfully, I can share it with you!

{ ingredients }
2 roma tomatoes
1 eggplant
1 yellow squash
1 zucchini
can of tomato sauce
olive oil
{ what to do }
1. preheat oven to 425.
2. heat olive oil in pan on medium heat and lightly brown the vegetables.
3. next, take out your oven pan. i used a 9 x 9 but any size will work. place the tomato sauce at the bottom then line up the vegetables however you'd like. i put the eggplant on bottom and put the rest in a line on top, as you can see.
4. add your favorite spices & seasoning on top.
5. bake for 15 minutes, and wah-la! serve.

Ratatouille is a very artistic dish - full of vibrant colors and acidic flavors. Yet personally, I prefer to eat it with something instead of completely alone. It's great with basically any grain. Add it to spaghetti, quinoa, put it on toast or crackers. The squash and zucchini are my favorite part but the tomatoes are too acidic while the texture of the eggplant is off. 

There's a lot to take in when it comes to ratatouille which is why I appreciate it. Like the film, it's a complex yet simple dish. You can really savor it and appreciate the vegetables in their raw form. And plus, it's naturally vegan! 

You can make it in many forms - but I took the artistic savory approach, just as the film did. It's also amazingly delicious in soup form. X

5 Shades of Communication // {& how they make me feel}

Being a millennial is cray-cray because we've been through so many sudden changes in technology and communication within such a short period of time. When we were children, technology was minimal. In elementary school, video games and computers existed but they weren't so prominent. Then by high school we were all over texting and social media. 

It seems like we went from VHS to Blu Ray overnight. We're still so young but we really got the chance to immerse in every form of communication. Generations older / younger than us got to take part in the changes, but they didn't get to live it in the way we did.

So as I was walking to the grocery store to get my pizza lunchable and other groceries, I thought about this. When my phone breaks or isn't working, I have to find alternatives. Even if it just dies, I still have to find alternatives. When I don't have wifi, I have to find alternatives. The list goes on.

My phone has been broken for the past week or so and I'm still in the process of getting a new one - so I've had to communicate with people totally differently. It's almost kind of eye-opening, but it got me thinking: how do I feel about different types of communication? 

So, I thought I would elaborate through my favorite form of art: writing.

{ E M A I L }

I always secretly love it when somebody emails me. I feel so 90s. Usually, people just email me for professional reasons but for people that don't have my number, it may be the only way for them to contact me. I low key can't help but smile when I see an old friend pop up in my inbox.

Whether it be professional or casual, when somebody emails you - you know they went through the effort to do that which is pretty awesome.

Every morning when I sign into my email, I turn into an Elaine Benis-Dana Scully-Carrie Bradshaw Hybrid. Emailing is the most underrated form of communication.

{ T E X T }

When texting first 'came out,' people would text about everything and anything. We loved having full on conversations for hours on end through the wondrous world of text, even if that meant pressing the same key four times for one letter. Ironic how now that most of us have iMessage, we only text people when we need something. 

I remember back in DA GOOD OLD DAYZZZ, whenever I was bored, I would send a random person in my contacts a text and that was perfectly normal. Now you have to have a valid reason to text someone. "You on your way? Hey...random question! Wanna hangout soon? When are you working? Where's that sushi place you were talking about? Can you pick me up tomorrow? What size dress do you wear again?"

If you don't really have a reason to text them, the other party will start being suspicious. (Even I'm guilty of this.) Without a valid reason, they are either secretly your mom or they want to wife you up. 

Therefore, whenever I text someone, I feel like a brainwashed millennial. There's really no magic in text. I use to get excited when my screen lit up but now I could care less. 

There's too much thought put into it and I just want people to be real with me. 

{ I N S T A N T }
{ M E S S A G E }
This is a good one. Although it was short-lived, it opened the door for 90% of the social media we use today. I remember spending HOURS on AIM waiting for my 'crush' or my 'best friends' to sign in. Trying to find the perfect picture, the perfect profile, the perfect icon, the perfect away messages. It truly was an art. I rarely have to actually use instant messaging, but occasionally, and VERY rarely, I will use instant messenger via Skype / AIM / etc. And maaaan, it makes me feel some type of way. It's like a time machine to 2004. Disney channel is on in the background. I'm drinking my capri sun and eating my hot cheetos while in my hot pink pajamas.

Video game up in one tab (probably Runescape), music lightly playing in one tabs (probably Taylor Swift), a bunch of random websites in the other tabs, and lastly - AIM.

It's just one of those things that was crucial for growing up in the 90's / early 2000s, so when I actually get to use instant messaging, I start to get those smitten school girl feels.

{ C A L L }

There are two sides to calling for me: one that makes me feel like a businesswoman walking down Wall Street, and one that makes me feel like a smitten young girl who wants to indulge in your soul.

Most of the time, when someone calls me, I hate it. However, there's something so flirtatious and cute about it. You can learn so much about someone through call. Remember those late night, groggy all-nighter phone calls about nothing and everything? 

In a time where calling is kind of unheard of, I really like it. That doesn't mean I prefer calls to texts, it just means it's nice coming from the right person at the right time.

{ L E T T E R S }
As a writer, reading letters is beyond therapeutic. There's something so special about seeing what someone poured onto paper for you.  Because it's so old-fashioned, there's not many social stigmas about letters like there is about basically every other form of communication.

Whenever I write or receive a letter, I think I feel closer to myself. More like a renaissance or victorian woman, you know?

It's organic and I think it touches our hearts with a heavier energy. Little notes I find on my desk or in my lunch make me smile more than a text ever could. A long letter I find stuffed in the back of my closet brings back more nostalgia and tears than old voicemails or emails could. Ah, that's why I love writing so much.

Set the Scene With Passing Thoughts {another post with no point}

Sitting on my mattress drinking mint green tea looking forward to the pizza lunchable I will eat in a few hours. 

When I first got to California, I had an air mattress. It was all that fit in the 1998 Chrysler Concorde and it actually worked quite well. Then it decided, "Hey, I'm going to start deflating for no apparent reason even though there isn't any holes." After that, came the "sleeping on the floor" era. I gotta say - it wasn't as bad as I thought. Add a few blankets and pillows and you're in a cozy fortastic paradise. 

Anyways, back to the present tense. You know what? Just kidding. I'm going to get that pizza lunchable now.

Anyways, I'm currently wearing navy blue basketball shorts with white stripes on the side, and my black work shirt that I didn't bother to change out of from earlier because I took a four hour nap and forgot. 

I'm also wearing a bra that literally doesn't even fit me and that I probably got at Target years ago. I never bought a bra from Victoria's Secret or anything fancy like that because I always thought I didn't need to. To this day I still wear bras that never support me correctly. It's actually really uncomfortable and I'm just starting to actually realize this now.

Oh and my hair? My hair isn't even hair anymore, it's just one big never-ending knot. I'm probably going to have to cut my hair with my safety art scissors soon, and it's going to look bad because it's going to have to be really short. Or I can just pretend I'm Hermione and deal with the fact there are seventeen animals living in the nest on my head.

(I have a theory this happened because I was too cheap to buy good shampoo so I bought 89 cent shampoo and now my hair is filled with buildup. My fault.)

I'm wearing my outdated glasses. No one knows I actually need glasses because I refuse to ever wear them and I'm too sensitive to contacts. I usually can see pretty well but seeing far away gets me.

I was so excited when I ordered them in the 10th grade but now I hate them because I can see the details in my face and it scares me.

My mascara is smeared under my eyes, with little microscopic dots of black mixing in with my little microscopic orange freckles.

Now that I set the scene with my current state, you can kind of tell I'm a mess. Not even a hot mess. A lukewarm mess. A room temperature mess. 

Currently listening to Utopian Futures by Kimya Dawson, aka my mother from another grandmother. 
We're searching for something that was lost
And centuries all have covered up

We're flailing to find the smallest fragments of our liberated lives
And every tiny piece we find
We pick up and glue together
Collectively working for our utopian futures to collide
In snuggly beds and midnight talks
In wandering bike rides and wayward walks
Making up all of our own music, art, myth, food and news
It's happening everywhere we go 
Collective bookstores and basement shows
Sharing a song that we all know or making up new ones as we go

The air is cold but a good cold. Some would complain that it's too bitter but I like the way it sweetly bites my pale skin. It goes beyond the numbness and makes me feel something. I just went to check the mail and looked up at the stars and felt nothing. But the bittersweet cold made me feel.

I miss looking at the stars and nature and feeling things. I miss it when people made me feel things. Gosh, I miss reading. And I miss being cute. Why am I always missing something?

My writing doesn't make sense. And I don't really make sense either. I'm missing myself, maybe.

My lavender fleece blanket is wrapped around my like a burrito and my halloween lights are still up behind me because they weren't up long enough for me to feel like I got my moneys worth.

Today, I was talking on the phone and online with Apple Support for hours and I'm pretty sure I am never going to get a cell phone again because everything is so complicated and expensive and technology fucks up all the time. It really messes with my mood sometimes, you know? Like, our phones are such an important part of our day-to-day schedules now.

Now that mine is entirely useless, I have no phone at all. It feels so weird! I feel so shut off from society. I don't even use my phone that much but it just feels so unnatural not to have it.

But I also feel inhumane paying hundreds and hundreds of dollars for phone bills and phone repairs and phone cases and extra data and new phones and service fees. The older I get, the more I hate this shit.

The older I get, the more I hate capitalism.

I'm now staring at the ceiling and realizing how ugly and stupid and ugly and overpriced my apartment is. So I decided to look at Craigslist for other apartments in neighboring towns and I even looked at apartments in different states. Why is everything so expensive. It's like society wants us to fail.

I just don't understand. When I really experience life and look at the reality of things, I see the truth. But then I go on instagram and I see all these people with literally no career living in cute perfectly lit 3 BR Downtown LA apartments.  Or I'll turn on the TV and see all these millennials trying to make it while somehow affording perfect Midtown Manhattan apartments. You'll never know how truly unrealistic the portrayal of certain lifestyles are in music / social media / television / etc until you experience life in that place long enough.

I guess that's why I want to produce a TV show so bad. I could make it so relatable and I could hit the issues no one really likes to talk about without being too serious.

It feels like so much of me is lost within the ocean. It's still there, somewhere between those waves, but it's hard to find. What was once so important and valuable me is now wavering in all that is blue, looking for something to hold onto.

Passion. A word that used to be in my vocabulary, now means nothing but 'Passion Iced Tea." When I heard that word a few years ago, my mind would turn into a galaxy, but now, I just think of a hot pink iced tea with 4 pumps of classic syrup in it.

My lifestyle lately has made me a better person. It has made me struggle on the level that most people don't have to struggle on. I didn't exactly grow up privileged compared to most of my peers, but now, all of that privilege I had is in that metaphorical ocean I was telling you about earlier.

I love being able to look in the mirror and be like, "See that bitch right there? Yeah, she's one cultured, down-to-earth, compassionate individual."

It feels good to walk outside my apartment door every morning and appreciate every living thing for their contribution to society and truly see everyone as equals. I don't look down on anyone and I don't look up on anyone anymore. I've become a yes man. If someone talks to me, I reply. I will never dehumanize someone by ignoring them or trying not to help them.

I feel like Esmeralda lately. "I ask for nothing, I can get by. I know so many, less lucky than I."
My life certainly isn't near perfect and sometimes, opening my eyes is hard. Getting out of bed is hard. Biking to work is hard. Taking the bus to my other job is harder.

But I live with my best friend AKA the best person in the entire world to ever exist. Andrew and I wanted to live together ever since like 6th grade, so despite my annoying busy schedule it's nice to see him everyday.

I work for the best company in the world. It's literally my occupation to create happiness. Just the other day, an old couple came in from across the country to celebrate their anniversary and I could tell how excited they were to be at Disney. While they were waiting in line, I ran across DCA to get them two "Anniversary" pins so they could remember their trip. It makes me happy that I have the creative opportunity to give guests moments, tangible and intangible. I love doing everything I can to help people out. Just in one day, I met someone from every single continent. And that's not something everything can say.

 I get to eat pizza lunchables. Need I say more? I have a mattress. Yay to no more sleeping on the ground! My hair looks like Hermione's hair and Hermione is the best witch in her class, possibly all time.

I may be numb when I look at the stars but at least I still have the vision to see them and realize they're beautiful.

11 Things to Do to Get {Pumped} For Winter

I love every season and the unique opportunities each and every one brings, but winter is special. Think about it. What other season holds so many major seasons within such a short period of time? What other time of year would you want to drink really hot pepperminty drinks, eat soup, and wear a bunch of sweaters?

Not to mention, everyone acts different around this cheerful time. They tip more, say thank you more, appreciate others more. I mean, people should be doing this all year round, but it's better than nothing.

Within this transition period, it can be hard to get pumped for winter right away. But here's what I like to do. XO

1. Listen to She & Him's Christmas Album.
Oh, the precious beauty this album holds. Full of vintage-esque Christmas covers and Deschanel's angelic voice, you will be sure to be left in a romantic, cozy winter mood. 

2. Watch ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas. 
Can't you see the serenity in the picture alone? Vanilla spice candles, soft lights on the tree, and Harry Potter playing in the background. If that isn't a perfect December night, then I don't know what is. View the entire schedule here.

3. Eat winter white bean stew.
I made this last winter and fell in love with the warmness each and every bite conveyed. Recipe here.

 4. Get a winter coat you LOVE.
This is more important than you think. I feel like the majority of us love winter fashion, but we neglect it once winter actually comes because we're all so cold and tired basically ALL THE TIME. But getting a coat you like is important. Usually, they're decently priced and they last a few years so it's worth the purchase. Get one that captures your aura while keeping you warm. 

 5. Let the seasonal enthusiasm roll in.
Whatever that means for you, do it. Pumpkin spice coconut milk and soy holiday nog did it for me. But I also love how Disneyland decorates itself during the holidays. Maybe for you, that means sitting by a fireplace drinking hot cocoa. Maybe that means wearing ugly red and green sweaters. Regardless, there are so many things that are exclusive to the cold winter months, so make the most of them while they're here. 
 6. Use Pinterest as a second Bible.
Mark my words, you will thank me later. Use it for creative gift ideas. Use it for cute lil recipes. Use it for motivation. It's good for the soul and it will make the holiday season just a tad more valuable.
7. Make a hot chocolate bar.
Mine from two years ago is above, but Here's some ideas for how to use yours.
 8. Or, make some spicy vegetarian chili.
I created this recipe out of my love for all things spicy, all things vegetarian and all things chili. Recipe here!
 9. Jazz up your room.
 Dazzling lights, soft pillows, winter dream candles, little pine trees in the corner. It'll brighten your mood every morning and every night.
10. Peppermint mochas & sweater strolls.
Get your holiday espresso beverage, your favorite sweater and take a stroll at your local park. It's not cold enough yet, but the light bitterness in the air will make you feel excited about the months to come.
11. Scare your coworkers with your love of the season.
Damn right. I've been doing this every year of my life to my peers, classmates and coworkers. I'm usually pretty reserved because #introvert, but when it comes to Christmas? I GO CRAZY. You get a present. Your cousin's girlfriends mom gets a present. Your teachers dog's best friend get a present. Christmas music everywhere. Smiling 24/7. Do not underestimate my love for winter. Just the other day at Disneyland I was walking on stage basically shouting out of pure excitement because the lights were up in California Adventure and my coworkers were like "Okay..."

Hi all! The November issue of Local Wolves (the Girl Power issue) is finally out. You can read it here, I am on page 78! I'm so thrilled to be featured in such a quality magazine with lovely company. In the issue, I have a brief interview and I talk about what girl power means to me. Link below!

Finally a big thanks to Cathrine Khom and Christel Roberto.
