hot july ain't good to me

i've noticed i've become a bit of a hermit/shut in these past couple of...weeks going out of my house only to hang out with friends/family or church and i haven't really been out to enjoy the beautiful southern california summers like i promised myself i would this year.
le sigh...
but i'm hoping to go to the beach again one more time hopefully with my friends before school starts. cuz y'know, i already messed up my new years resolution of not getting a tan this year. [[i was doomed from the start i shoulda known :p ]]
anyhoo, i digress. aj and i went to the park this past monday since he had the day off and we had fun hanging out, getting some vietnamese food and skateboarding. [[y'know, the usual couple-y things we always do]]

i haven't skated in what feels like forever and i tried to go skating in my new sandals which, by the way, was a bad idea since it had a bit of wedge to it and balancing just felt weird :/
i also have to get used to riding on crush, my cruiser, if i ever want to use her on campus once school starts. technically, we're not supposed to skateboard, rollerblade, bike or anything on campus but i've seen a lot of fellow classmates skating to and from classes and i've only seen one person get cited for skating on campus since he was stupid enough to do it in front of the campus police station
and as aladdin once said, "you're only in trouble if you get caught" ;)
aj told me that i'm more than welcome to use cheech, his long board, for school but seriously, that thing is almost as tall me and i don't really want to be lugging him around even though it's a lot smoother to ride on than crush :p
aj and i keep going back and forth on the whole crush vs. cheech thing and he keeps going on about how he should've gotten me a longboard instead but it's kinda too late for that since i love my cruiser very much :3 i just keep telling him that i need thicker wheels to go over sidewalk cracks better since, let's face it, no matter how cool and confident you are, it's still embarrassing when you fall and totally eat it in front of a bunch of people >:/
but whatever. whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger eh?

born and raised in a summer haze

it has been so hot here in southern california that it just makes me a bit uninspired to really dress more than a t-shirt and shorts :p
so naturally that's become my summer uniform.

usually my tee+shorts uniform just looks so blah and unpost worthy [[which is one of the reasons why i haven't really posted much :p]] that i just don't really see the point in taking pictures. well, and also i admit, i've been a bit lazy -_______-
but once in a while i'll try and put more effort in what i wear. hey, you never know where you're gonna go or who you're gonna see so you might as well look your best at least for yourself ;]
also nothing helps with style ruts than some new pieces to play with *ahem* the shoes and the hat. hahaha
i went shopping this past weekend with my mom, my auntie and yvanna and grabbed a few treasures for the new semester [[but that's for another post]]
so on monday the boyfriend and i went to the park together and he helped me take some pictures since it's been a while. we actually walked around the back where all the weeds and bushes grew wild since there was soccer practice going on at the time and i don't really like to pose for pictures with so many people around :p

aj tries so hard to take good pictures for me and every time he plays photographer for me it's always a learning process for the both of us. sometimes its a bit frustrating for the both of us because sometimes i can be a bit picky with pictures cuz of funny faces and cockatoo hair and what not and he just thinks i look beautiful no matter what, which is very sweet of him buuut it's just not what i'm looking for.
le sigh
o well, practice makes perfect yes? :]

we are always running for the thrill of it

i haven't worn this dress in such a long time. i bought it around my senior year of high school and loved how versatile it was. there are seriously, endless possibilities on how to wear it and only your imagination is the limit :D [[lol now doesn't that sound cheesy?]] plus i also loved the fun print and the fact that it had elephants on it :]
this is actually one of the outfits that i wore/brought with me to the beach for fourth of july. and yes, i did say "one of the outfits i wore" meaning, there were more than one. and no, it's not cuz i'm a diva or anything of the like, it's cuz i'm actually a pretty messy person especially at the beach+little cousins/nieces and nephews running around. but this specific dress i brought just for pictures on le blog~ and i really wanted to take advantage of the lovely scenery at coronado beach and also the sand dunes at this specific part of the beach. it's one of mine and my cousins' favorite places to go play during fourth of july. my cousin yvanna and i actually took a bunch of jumping photos at the dunes and i have to say, she's a lot better at it than i am :p
fourth of july was pretty fun and kinda perfect except for a couple of mishaps [[more on that next post]] but all in all, i'd have to say it was pretty memorable :]
what about you guys? :D

in the business of misery

every once in a while, when it's tested, my temper/sassy side flairs up and "chola" rosslyn comes out. and i'm pretty sure you guys mostly get the impression that i'm a nice, sweet girl and i am! it's just, sometimes i feel like my darker side needs to come out some how to keep me sane i guess.

in case you guys are wondering, [[or if you can even see it]] that is an egg in my hand. i've never egged anyone or anything in my entire life, though, i'll be honest, i've thought about it but i don't think i'd ever go through with it since:
  1. i think it's a waste of food
  2. it's a pain in the ass to wash off [[well duh, rozz that's the point!]]
  3. i'm too much of a good person to ever really go through with it

i was pretty mad when i took these photos, hence the "bitch face", evil grin and tough looking outfit. "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned" and as much as i'd love to be the kind of woman who puts this saying into action, i just can't. revenge isn't really something that i act upon, though it sure as hell is fun to fantasize about, but i know better then to act on hurt feelings. i'd rather rely on karma. if i don't do anything bad, karma will treat me kindly. but when someone treats me bad, well i just hope that i'm lucky enough to see when they get theirs.

how 'bout you guys? what do you do when someone's wronged you or you get "the mean reds"?
