Cheers to the end of my first semester at UCF! The professor enjoyed teaching our class this semester, so he brought us cupcakes. But it's not just any type of cupcakes from Walmart of Publix, but a Cupcake Wars winner Sweet! By Holly cupcakes! This delish treat is her tiramisu cupcake, and it's really a guilty pleasure of mine. 

I'm so relieved that this class is over cause that's one less class to worry about. AND the best part is that I don't need to take the final cause I got an A! Holla! Almost there Marizette, almost there. 



 Today I was able to attend a sweet dinner that our YSA president and his wife planned for us as presidency of Elders Quorum and Relief Society. They showed us a video right here to settle a controversy that's been going on in our church. I received a lot of spiritual thoughts about the video, but I also gained an understanding of womanhood that doesn't have to be church related at all.

In our conversation about the video, we mentioned a few times that society really sets the game. Being a house wife in today's society shows everyone that she's a slave to her husband, that she's not capable of work, she can't make money. Being caring or respectful at work shows society that we're weak, that we need to be tougher for people to like us or respect us, that we as women need to be more aggressive. Why does it have to be that way? Why are we as women trying to be more like men? Why are we trying to abide to a mans rule in this game? We do still live in a patriarchal society, although we've come a long way as women, this whole time we've been ground set in a mans rule.

I've respected myself as a woman to know that we as women have our own way of handling things. I don't have to act masculine to get order in what I want at work or school. I just need leadership and confidence. I'm actually really grateful for womanhood because, honestly, we have and hold such a great divine nature of being a woman. The care or understanding that we have towards others in a way that is almost empathetic, experiences of motherhood, and our duties at work, school, or at home. We are hard workers! In my life I've seen more women work harder than men in a long shot and some women still insist that they're competing with men. There is no competition here. We, as human, are capable of all different aspects of greatness that is valued with our potential. I'm grateful for being a woman because I don't have to play a mans game to understand my potential. Womanhood is great and we should all (yes you too men!) understand not to degrade it, but respect it.





For liking a friends post on facebook, I guess I now must post 12 things that not everyone knows about me. This is a thing right?
  1. I absolutely hate lipstick marks left on cups or straws, even if it were my lipstick marks.
  2. In random normal situations (for example: studying in the library) I would sometimes think of ways in my head to make a total fool of myself just to see how people might react to my stupidity and see if I can get away with my weird manner (this is going on in my head of course, not irl).
  3. I want to build my own library and movie gallary in my future home.
  4. I want to be a stay-at-home mom.
  5. I don't only choose not to drink or smoke or do drugs because I'm Mormon, but also because I have a fear that I can get addicted to it. 
  6. I really enjoy going to Museums.
  7. I want to learn how to braid my hair in different ways but I just don't get how to do a simple French braid. 
  8. Honestly without my knowledge of the gospel and the plan of salvation, I'd be in a really dark place right now. 
  9. Before going out for the day, I really have to fit my outfit with my mood or I would feel uncomfortable the whole day and that's a no bueno.
  10. I'm so attached to How I Met Your Mother that I might know the exact episode title if you described the episode to me. 
  11. I want to settle in a place where there are beautiful trees with flowers, four seasons, and some streets with brick roads and bright painted front doors, and everything would be walking distance.



But according to my iPhone photos, here's what's been going on in my life:

I been noticing the blessings in my life through simple things that make me happy everyday. My best friend, Erika, left for her mission to Jacksonville, FL. My sister turned 18. Daniel sends me random letters in the mail that just makes my heart melt. My best friend Georgette began working with me at GAP. Watched Thor and realized how could I have never fallen for Loki? Work is opening up the opportunities for me to succeed. Received a box full of goodies from Daniel and my heart was content.
