Ever had those days when your in a deep sleep, and having the best dreams? Well I was having one of those today until I got a call from Goobie telling me Tony needed us in the office right away. I was sooo pissed, having such a good sleep, and having to go to school when I don't have class. Any way, I got up, took a shower, and got ready, second after I was all done, Goobie was right outside to pick me up, it was good timing! LoL! Didn't even get the chance to have something for breakfast. As walked into the Student Life Office, Mayra (Student Life Secretary) looks at us with a smile in her face, I'm like "Don't even say anything, and don't you ever call us that early!" LoL! She laughed. Well the whole deal was that Tony wanted to swear us into office, Goobie and I were excited. Chester and Mayra were the witnesses, LoL! The funny thing was that we didn't have a Bible on hand, Mayra went looking for one and said that she had one, but it was a pocket sized one, LoL! Imagine us putting our hands one such a small things, we ended up not using one, and continued. FINALLY!!! Now I could say I'm the Student Government Vice-President of Miami-Dade College, Kendall Campus!!! We ended up cleaning up the office after that. We rearranged the furniture, moved tables, computers, lockers, EVERYTHING around, we wanted to see a new office, since it is a new administration. Well I gotta go to bed, I gotta wake up tomorrow at 5am, meeting the College President and the Board of Trustees...how exciting! ;)

Hey J! I'm sooooo sorry for not writing to you dear journal, there is no need for this negligence I have given you, but I have been very busy, lazy, and horny for the past few days that there was no time to write to you. Anyways, there is so much to tell that you are going to either going to be surprised or bored at what I'm about to say. So yeah where to start.....Oh yeah....semester grades....well it seems like I did pretty bad this semester. I ended up getting two C's and failing my Biology class and dropping my Math class. I went from a 3.4 GPA to a 2.9.....A 2.9 GRADE POINT AVERAGE J!!! HOW THE FUCK DID I GET THAT!!! I was soo disappointed in myself, I guess I won't be able to join PTK anytime soon. I registered for Summer, and I'm going to take Math and Biology again so that I could get back my GPA. This so called "Forgiveness" they have where they allow you to take the course(s) again as if I hadn't taken it before. I start classes on Tuesday, and I not in the mood to start classes again, I need a longer Vacation! My room is still a mess, I haven't even cleaned it up to start painting the bitch! Hopefully once I get myself organized I'll start painting, maybe by this weekend I think I'll start.

The SGA Road Trip was this week, It was ok, had lots of fun, but it was lots of drama, DRAMA...DRAMA...DRAMA!!! So much drama that I came up with this funny slogan, "Don't Join The Drama Club...Join SGA!" LoL!!! I'm sure that would bring lots of student to join, huh? What do you think? We went to Orlando, it was a 4 day, 3 night thing. We stayed at the Best Western in International Drive, it was pretty nice, the suites were pretty big, they had a fridge, a microwave, king bed, sofa bed, two Tv's, it wasn't that bad for the rate we paid. We left Wednesday like at 1pm and got there like a 6 to 7 something. We went to Islands of Adventure the following day, now that was lots of fun!!! And that's where the "Drama" began. It all started when Harold and Shaista started holding hands and being touchy touchy all of a sudden. Goobie and I were lost, we didn't know what was happening. One minute Shy doesn't like Harold, and the next, they are grabbing each others asses, holding hands non-stop in the park, to kissing in the line of Dueling Dragons. I felt bad for Goobie, after all she has told Shy about Harold, things like how much she is in love with him and this and that. And the things Shy has told Goobie about Harold. You see, Shaista didn't like Harold since their trip to Austria, where Harold got very close to Shy. Shy had told Harold to back off, but he insisted, making Shy disgusted by him, as I have been told by her. If you only knew all the things she had told me about him, negative stuff I might add. I just don't get it, after all the bad stuff she has said about him, she goes around and lets him do whatever he wants. And she just stands there doing nothing, you could still see that she doesn't LIKE or WANT him by the way she is around him, her face tells everything. But like I told Goobie, let them be, you know it won't last, and if it does, that's their decision, you go ahead and move on, cause you could do better than that....he just has you there as "Un plato de segonda mano" and that’s shouldn't be. You could find a million more Harold's out there of better categories, who would love to treat you with respect and dignity. Just let go of him, I promise you it will be for the better. As far as what I think about Shaista....to this point, I never knew she would do such a thing....How could she? Goobie told her everything, she gave you her heart , she told you how she felt about him, and all you did was just do the total opposite a friend would do and go for the guy your friend had a thing for, that isn’t a TRUE friend to me. You see J, Shy is the type of person who gets everything she wants, but let me tell you something, all that ended when she couldn't have me! She told me that when we had a convo of how she was surprised and hurt that I rejected her, because she is used to getting everything she wants in life, but no one gets no where with the mentality. But w/e J, that’s their life, I'll let them be, just don't come up to me when you feel sick and tire of Harold, because I don't want to hear it, come and talk to me and ask me for advice about something else, but don't bring up the subject about you and Harold, because you got yourself into this all on your own.

The Drama continues J! You know what I heard, I heard that the subject of me not riding in Shaista's car on our way to Orlando was brought up in her car...It has been said (the name of this person shall remain unanimous) that her response was that she didn't want me on her car, and that I knew that she didn't want me to ride in her car. Well first of all, I don't know why the FUCK she would say such a thing, because I didn't do anything to her for her to make such a comment. But you know what, I don't give a who, I just let her do and say whatever she wants, she isn’t going to stop me from having a good time. I just wished this person would have told me her comments about me when she said them, because I would have confronted he right there and then. But there's nothing I could do now, I'm leaving all this shit behind me, and leaving it in the past.

So yea...this trip was a eye opener for me and a few people, It showed the true colors of a few people in SGA. I think this trip was worth the $330 I spent. Thank you Braulia and Harold for this great opportunity, It was a great experience, I miss you all already....yes every one! LoL!

Till next time J!

Well, what can I say, this election has had its ups and downs, and by far the dirtiest of them all. It was a two day event, were we would have to campagne and bring students to vote, and comvince them to vote for you. I stood right infront of the voting booth, staying 5-feet away from the "Red Tiles" and the booths. It was a tough call let me tell you, Mike, which was the one I was running against brought his own possie of three guys. All wearing white shirts that said "Vote For Mike Jadoo". I was surprised, because I never saw it coming, but in all, I still kept my head up high. The guys just started taking over my spot being loud, giving me insults, and just being rude. It kinda blow me off, because Mike wouldn't be the person that would do such a thing, he's a very serious, and nice guy, so the whole time I was scratching my head, wondering why Mike would so such a thing. Well what seemed to happend was that Mike wasn't aware of what he's frineds were doing, and apologized for what happened. I was sooo pissed that day, and hurt with thier insults that I just wanted to quit. I started planning things for tomorrow, coming out with a stratagy of how I'm going to get them back! But I wasn't going to scoop down to thier level, I was going to play fair, because we shouldn't be putting each other down like that. I went home that day thinking of what I was going to do, I had to come tomorrow with a big bang! I made shirts, bought candy, and called a few friends to help me out. I said to myself that tomorrow was going to be a new start, and I just came with a positive attidude, I wasn't going to let those pricks get to me this time. The day went by good, Mike's frineds started being more social, and more people seemed to come and vote. I was a bit nervous and negative with how the results would come out to be. Because most of the people we're voting for the first names that appeared in the ballot, which were Farah Andre for President, and Mike Jadoo for Vice-President. Goobie and I were the next ones, so we had a disadvantage there. The voting ended at 6, and the counting began like around 7 something, Minnie, Nora, Shy, Harold, Gio and another girl from Student Life were the ones counting, while the others and I waited in our office. We played games, sang, ate, slept, and did pretty much eveyrthignt o kill time, because it was a long wait. Farah and Jadoo left home, so Goobie and I started worring if we were going to know the results that night, because they had said in the beginning that all candidates had to be there to read the results. But once they finished counting the ballots, they took us to the Student Life Office and Minnie called me up and said to go to her office, I was nervous, thinkinh she was going to tell me something bad. But as soon as she was closing her door, she said that I had won, I was sooo excited, I just wante dto look for Goobie and tell her, but as soon as that, Goobie was walking in her office, and said that we were her new President and Vice-President. We looked at each other with a smerk, and hugged each other. It was great, couldn't be a better day. After that, we ended up going to Denny's with the whole group, everyone was trying to ask me if she had told me, or if I knew if I had one, but we couldn't say anything, because Minnie wants to make it seem like if she is going to tell us as a group. So the whole night, Goobie and I kept a straight face, glancing at each other once in while at Denny's. I've truly learned something during this election, and that is to never give up! Always keep a positive atitude.

Coño J! Long Time No Write, LoL! Been pretty busy at school and home, we started painting yesterday my house. No more white wall, so I'm pretty excited about that. Four years looking at the same shit, just can't wait until we are all done. Yesterday was Nora's Birthday, everyone in SGA ended up going except Gaby and a few other people. The party, or should i call it the "get-together" wasn't all that good. Shy was being nothing but a bitch to me, she was just making jokes and putting me down the whole time I was there. I just wanted to get up and leave. The sucky part was that she was my ride. I ended up riding with Harold, Bra, Angel, & Alvaro. We left Nora' House around 2 something. From there these people wanted to smoke and I was like I ain't going to smoke, but I'll go with you guys. They ended up stopping at a gas station and buying some Black & Milds. Braulia was going to buy 5 but I told her to buy 4, cause I wasn't going to smoke. They got back on the car and stopped near by to light them up, in seconds the car started to be filled with smoke lingering in the air, LoL! It was funny, they offered me some but I was like nah, no thanks. It got to me, so I just grabbed Harold’s cig and started puffing, LoL! It felt good! I told the guys to fucking turn around and but me one, so they did. We were just cruising around 104 Street smoking. Once those ended, we stopped at another gas station and bought a pack of Black & Mild Cherry and a pack of Phillies Blunts, now let me tell you something, those blunts were fucking awesome! We rolled up the windows and puffed until we couldn't take it anymore, once we lowered the windows it was like Scary Movie style, LoL! I had a great time, being my first time, I thought it was going to be worse. But I guessed wrong. After that, they dropped off at my house, I immediately stripped down and went to the garage to put me clothe in the washer. (Hide the Evidence you know!) I was about to get into bed when I got a call from Tanya @ 3 something, telling me that we had to talk, clearly about Gaby, and our friendship. We ended up know Gaby was telling other people stuff we told her, and told her not to tell anyone. I got home like at 5 and went to bed then. It was a long day, and an interesting one at that. Hopefully I'll get into more detail soon. Till then!

Today was a very interesting day! It was my "Dress Up Nice...I Feel Like Shit Day". For some reason I woke up feeling like shit, but I didn't let that get to me. I woke up today on time, wore a nice blue shirt, black slacks with pin strips, and nice shoes and belt to go with it, and made it to my English class on time. Spent most of the day at the SGA office, doing minutes and flyers for my elections. I also posted my Alf flyers around school, so hopefully that will attract people to come and vote. The day went pretty fast, it was a good day, nothing to complain about. Just some though lingering around, but I forgot about those most of the time. Tanya was at my house today, doing some homework for Chemestry. She told me she's going on a cruise with Gabe and his family, and said that she was leaving the 25th. A bell rang and said..."My Birthday". She said she got everything covered and said she had a big surprise for me, hopefully I get to go with her, LoL! But I think its something else, who knows....I'm pretty excited to find out what it is, even though I kinda know what it is, LoL! But oh well, you never know. Ok J...Ciao!

Hey J! Man...what a weekend it was! First of all, let me just say that I spoke to the person I've been thinking about. And brought everything to the table and set it straight by telling the truth. I wrote a letter on Saturday at the beach with Tanya. It was hard, but at the same time very cleansing. I was getting rid of the shit I made up, and felt good about it for once. I sent the letter that night, and got a response the following afternoon at the beach again. Let's just say that we are talking again. But not all good news comes by itself. The bad news is that that person is now speaking to someone else, but I guess those are the consequences I get for being stupid. I think I should just move on...forget the past, you know. Hopefully better things are ahead of me. More People and Places to see! AnYyYWay! The beach was great, I had a good time, and got a great tan. Hopefully we might end up going next Friday as well, but with Gaby this time. Can't wait! Oooo! I had a bio test today, I felt good for once taking the test, and the funny thing is that I didn't study for it, we'll see on Wednesday how good I did, LoL! Well J! I'm off to bed, got a big day tomorrow. Till Then....

Ugh! I miss you...I got home thinking about this person J, someone that really means a lot to me! I had to confess to someone why I stopped talking to this so called person who shall remain unnamed. I told Tanya (My Best Friend) what was happening, and told her that I couldn't stop thinking about ****. You see, I met this person last year, around November, we clicked right of the bat. But I was just getting to close and attached!!! (I didn't want to hurt you. I was keeping a big lie from you, that I knew it would just break your heart. Talking to you started as a simple chat online...I never intended for our relationship to grow as much as it did. But you kept insisting....IMing me....calling me....and I gave in. Because you made me feel better inside, every time we talked you brought a smile to my face. You were nothing but honest, trusting, funny, and caring) You know J when you think about your future, you see your house, your kids, and stuff like that? Well when ever I think about those things, I picture that persons face in it. I just hope once I bring everything out to the table, this person will be willing to forgive me, and give me one more chance. And I just wanna say that I'm sorry for being so immature, and I hope when I finally confront you and explain why I stopped talking to you, you could understand me! Because losing you, especially as a friend, has been the worst thing that I have had to deal with this year. Te quiero mucho!!!

Today was a great day, It couldn’t have been more picture perfect!

APRIL FOOL'S!!!! =D

Today was an ok day. I woke up late today, and missed my English class for like the tenth time this semester, thank god my professor doesn't take roll. I even missed my Social Environment class too, ain't that a bitch! But that didn't really matter, I went to school basically to get my election flyer approved by Minnie, I was worried she wouldn't, but she did, she loved it. School was ok today, new day same shit, seriously! We had our senate meeting today, it went really quick, so I was happy about that. After the meeting, I finally got to talk to Shy, which wanted to talk to me for the past two days. She told me that I have to get my shit together if I'm gonna be next year's VP. I have to stop procrastinating, and start attending classes again. Lately, especially this semester I have slacked off school. So she had a point, but it sucked that it had to come from someone else, other than yourself. But I thanks her, cause she made me realize and see how I have changed...for the worse. But anywaAAy! I wanna thank Jade and my Brother for the flyer, I got a phat ass flyer, which has Alf on it! I went to Kinko’s today and made 40 color copies of it, hopefully it’s gonna stand out, especially stand out from Mike's flyers. Thankfully, the guy from Kinko’s gave me each copy at 60 cents each, because they are $1 each. Saved me a lot of money. Thank you Kinko’s Guy!!!

Where to start....Oh yes! Debates! What a day, I felt good the whole day until that dreadful moment. I was very excited about the whole debate thing, although I don't like them, there was something different about this time that I felt good. The debate was held in the Coffee House, and the turn out of student was pathetic. There were like 20 students in the coffee house, out of 40,000 students we have. And I'm pretty sure one out of those 20 people in the Coffee House came to see the debate, the others were there just enjoying their usual lunch. I'm gonna be totally honest, my speech and the way I answered my question were the worst, I know for a fact I could of done better. But that wasn't the highlight of the evening. The highlight started when Alex, one of our own SGA members asked a question for all the candidates, Presidents and Vp's. The question was brought up because Goobie, who is running for President, brought the fact that she would like to see more variety on our cafeteria menu. The question was, how would we implement to the students the fact that its going to be hard or impossible to bring more variety due to the fact that there is a contract within the company running the cafeteria. Goobie responded and said something that the contract the cafeteria had was a state contract, and in the background you could see our advisor, Minnie, shaking her head "no". After the debate Minnie was upset because Goobie was making things up, and she got pissed for that. She brought up the fact that she needed to talk to her, but it seemed like she couldn't wait. She had to talk to Gaby right there and then, screaming, yelling, and blaming her. You see J, this is not the only time we have had problem with Minnie, and she is kind of a bitch if I may add. You see, she has noticed that this years Prez & VP don’t take crap from her, and she has never had a tough group like this one. So she doesn't like Gaby or Me alot because she notices that we don't take crap from here either. Since she has Farah, which is also running for President, and Michael, which is running for Vice-President, on the palm of her hand, she would take any chance to embarrass Gaby or Me. So Minnie went at it with Gaby for a long time, right in front of the students and everything, I told her that they are noticing we are having a argument, and we should take this back in the office, in private. I felt sorry for Goobie, because this is a learning process, we make mistakes, but we learn from them. Minnie just made a big deal out of it, and just was being very disrespectful and loud. We asked her why she was being loud and she said she had some Latin blood in her, who fucking gives her the right to tell us that. Well the good thing is that Tony, the one who has final say on everything was listening to the whole thing behind a palm tree. And brought up the issue to Minnie. It was funny, because Minnie was telling Tony & Mayra, our Student Life Secretary, a different story. She told Mayra the reason she was yelling at Goobie was because she kept walking away from her, and she told us the reason why, was because she had Latin blood in her. I'm telling you, this Minnie issue gets worse every time, and if I end up winning, I'm going to have to deal with this shit everyday. Anyways, Braulia kept me smiling during the whole debate. She was playing around and sucking a Banana on the background, she just made everything better, she's awesome. LoL! Tomorrow is April Fool's can't wait, I got lots pranks up my sleeve. Well, I hope tomorrow ends up being a great day. I might even get to see on the flyer my brother or should I say Jade is working on for my campaign. It's gonna be tight! Bueno! Till then!

Hey J! What up! Well today was a good day. I actually woke up on time today and make it to my English class which is at 9:50am. It was funny, because as soon as I walked into the classroom, I saw no papers on the professor's table...our professor said in the beginning of the semester that if there are no papers on the table, it is most likely that he is not coming. But I sat down anyways and joined a few classmates. I was kinda excited that he wasn't going to show up today because I had a mess waiting for me up stairs in the SGA office. Julie (Corresponding Secretary) was attacking me with missing minutes. Well a sub ended up showing up collecting essay #2, which I didn’t do, lol! I headed back to the office and started organizing myself with SGA stuff. The rest of the day was good, Tony put me into a college wide committee, a so called "Technological Committee" I guess they are going to use me as a guinea pig, lol! I was kinda not wanting to be in it, cause I'm already on the Honor Code, now I’m gonna have to deal with more shit in my life! But hopefully its gonna be a great experience. Oh yea, I almost forgot.....guess what guys....debates are tomorrow! I'm super excited, I really can't wait to see what questions Bra (Full-Time Vice-President...Part-Time Clown...lol) came up with. Gonna show up to school in a suit, all sharp and shit! I'm telling you baby! I got the looks! Haha! Ok then...wish me luck! I'm going for the kill!

Well, it seems like there was nothing to do than start my own journal. It's been crazy these few days, election for SGA are around the corner, and the campaigning for my candidacy of Vice-President is driving me crazy! I posted up flyers today around the whole campus, I spent like an hour doing that. I was kinda annoyed because Mike, one of SGA members, who is also running for Vice-President got all the good spots, and had flyers like crazy posted around the whole fucking school. Debates are on Wednesday, I think I'm ready, so I can't wait for that. I got this paper due tomorrow for English, well it was due last Thursday, but the professor allows us to turn next class. I didn't do shit, I'll let him know that I'll turn it in this Thursday. I just couldn't do it cause I was studying for my Social Environment class, which we have a test tomorrow, or should I say today at 11:15am. I went to Kinko's today to make copies of the handbills I will be passing out in class. Hopefully people will come out and vote, cause we need 2000 students to show up for voting, or we are fucking screwed, I dont want the college president bitching at us or Tony, which is the student life director. I just wish I could go to sleep, sleeping helps shit to go away, but it won't do anything for me. Cause I need to get shit done. I just can't wait for this semester to be done. It's been a wild ride. Oh yea, I applied for a credit card for the hell of it today, hopefully I get it, cause by the looks of it, I ain't, cause I ain't got a job. Oh yea, I also tried making an appointment so that I could get my driver's license, I still have my restricted, ain't that a bitch! Well I'm gonna go ahead and sleep, gotta wake up early tomorrow, hopefully I'll make it to my English class on time. Till next time J!
