It’s hard to believe at how fast the days go by. I can’t believe that today we end the month of May of 2012. So much has happen this month for me, for one I shared my new site with all of you and I also started blogging and I really want to thank all of you who visit my blog, I really do enjoy seeing that people do come to see or read it, it really does mean a lot to me. My online blog is like a personal blog to me that allows me to let all of you to get to know me a little bit more and also for me to share my thoughts and photos with all of you. One of the main reasons for my online blog is for me to keep everything in one place and one day look back at all my blog post and remember those moments I had. It's also a really great place for me to organized everything and have everything in one place. With social networks these days it's hard to keep your life in one place because it's all over the place. Which reminds me, it would be a good idea for me to start printing my blog post out, just because while technology is good, It’s always best to have it in paper just incase. The month of May was a really good month for me, I got to hang out with my friends, watch movies, go swimming and so much more. I’m so excited to start a new month, the month of June 2012, it’s like a fresh new start for new things. But then again everyday is a new start for new things and a new you, never forget that. I can’t wait to see what adventures the month of June has for me and I for sure will keep you updated on what’s happening with me. Much Love,

On Wednesday May 9 and Thursday May 10, I got to hang out with my friend Kendall. Kendall and I have been bestfriends seems I was in the 7th Grade and she was in 8th but that’s not what I am going to talk about in this blog. Kendall is one of my more talkative friends, she talks to me about everything whenever she has a problem or needs someone to talk too, i’m always here for my friends. Kendall is also my more public friend as you can tell by the photos and videos. Okay now that you have a little background information about Kendall let me tell you what we did when we hung out. On Wednesday I went over to her place sometime around the afternoon. I went over to her condo which is about a 7 minute walk from where my parents live so it’s not too far away from where I live. Once I got there we went outside in her balcony, talked, watched TV, took pictures, she Skyped with a friend, blogged and then we listen to some music. While we listen to music I thought it would be fun to make a dancing video for our youtube and seems ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen was a big hit for making dancing youtube videos we decided to dance to it and Kendall really liked that song. We tested out her computer camera to make sure we were on frame and had good lightning and talked about what we should do for the video and began to dance. We made two versions of ‘Call Me Maybe’ because on the first one Kendall ahd no idea what we where doing, check out the first version here, and the second one will be up soon. After we made the two versions of “Call Me Maybe” and other random videos we did another dancing video to Kendall’s choice of song. This was the first time of me hearing this song, but I still danced to it as best as I could. I haven’t put that one out in public yet but i’ll let all of you have an exclusive look at it here before I make it public in the next couple of weeks. After that I went back to my parents house around 7 seems I had walked to Kendall’s place and it was going to be getting dark soon and I wanted to be home before the sun stared to go down. The next day, Thursday we had plan to hang out very early, but I had to change the times I could go over to her place because it was mothers day for me and I wanted to clean my parents place from top to bottom for my mom and that took a very long time. But seems it was still early and I was close to being done cleaning and we were both free I invited her out to eat Chinese Food. I order take out for the both of us and we walked back to my parents place to eat and watch TV. Once I was all done cleaning, we walked over to her place. Once we got to her place we talked and watched a documentary. A few hours later we eat the leftovers from our Chinese food while we watched the documentary and talked for a little bit. We had planned on making some more dancing videos that day but Kendall was tired so I made one by myself. After that it was getting late so I walked back home to give my mom her mothers day card and hug and that was my day dancing with Kendall, it was fun, I'm excited to see more of her this summer, Much Love

So a few weeks ago May 3, Anna and me got to spend time together. I hadn't seen her for a while then so we decided to spend sometime together. Our day started around 6:30 close to 7 PM. We went out to this really cool restaurant called ‘Red Robin’ that was just really nice in the inside. It had a really cool feel to it and view from where we sat. This was my first time at 'Red Robin' also. There were a lot of old iconic posters hanging from the walls, like ‘The Brady Bunch” “Audrey Hepburn” and many more. It had great chandeliers coming down almost all the way to the table of all different shapes, sizes and colors. There was just a lot of cool things there to make the place feel nice and enjoyable. It was really big and there were a lot of people there so the seats we got towards the end of the place were nice because that’s where all the cool stuff was at. I order the “Keep It Simple” cheeseburger because it’s the one that looked good to me from the menu, the rest were a little different then the normal burgers I had before. The burger was really good, I even got one to go. When I finally my burger, one of the fries on the side was super long, it was funny at how long it was and it was the longest fried I had ever seen so far. For drinks I had the ‘Root Beer Float, It was so good, I haven’t had one in a long time and I used to love them when I was little. My friend Anna had the ‘Very Berry Raspberry Limeade’ or the ‘Freckled Lemonade’ I can’t remember. And to go I had a ‘Strawberry Milkshake’ for desert. It was all so good and yummy. After we got done eating at ‘Red Robin’ Anna and I went to the ‘Holiday’ gas station which was right behind ‘Red Robin’ and rented two movies from ‘Red Box’. We got two movies in which we both agree on, we got a comedy which was ‘The Sitter’ and a serious movie which was ‘We Bought a Zoo’ based on a true story. After we got the movies we went to Anna’s place to watch the movies on her TV. Both movies were great. We saw the serious movie first which was ‘We Bought a Zoo’ because I didn't want to end the day sad and stuff. ‘We Bought a Zoo’ was a movie based on a true story. It was about this man name Benjamin Mee who was an LA newspaper columnist and adventure writer, who had done many adventures in his career. Benjamin had just lost his wife and faced the challenges of being single parent raising two kids. Trying to find a new life he decides to buy a new home for his family to get away from the past. Benjamin and his son do not get along at all and that's what the movie kinda goes about. But anyways they decided to go house searching and they come to this place that is not only a house but a zoo. Benjamin seeing his daughter so happy decides to purchase it, even tho he has no idea how to take care of a zoo. It’s when Benjamin purchases the zoo and goes thru the challenges of keeping a zoo that him and his family finally start to understand each other and get a long. This is a great movie to watch with the family on movie nights. After we got done watching ‘We Bought a Zoo’ we watched the comedy movie ‘The Sitter’. I love comedy movies, and ‘The Sitter’ was a great movie to watch. ‘The Sitter’ is about “Noah is a suspended college student, living at home with his single mom. When he is talked into babysitting the three, young, misfit kids next door, he decides to take them along on an attempted sexual rendezvous, and the night takes a wild and dangerous turn for the worse for which he is totally unprepared” yes this is the small summary of the movie from the ‘Red Box’ site, because I tend to write really long summaries for movies as you can see. ‘The Sitter” is a great movie to watch with your friends, you will be laughing through the movie. My day with Anna ended at midnight, that’s when we got done watching both movies. I probably got home close to 1 AM the next day. Once I got home I went to bed and that was my fun, quiet day with Anna. Much Love,

So today I got to hang out with my bestie Anna Banana. It was a very humid day in Minnesota, there wasn't a lot of sun but it was just a hot afternoon. Around 7 PM Anna came over and we wen't swimming at my parents place. The water was so warm and nice, it was my first time at the pool for the summer today. I don't go swimming a lot unless I have company with me, because it's no fun swimming alone. Anyways about half an hour later it looked like it was going to rain because it was very cloudy and kinda windy. But seem's our stuff was safe from getting wet we decided to keep on swimming, after all the water was perfect and the sky looked very nice even tho it was looking like a storm was coming. A couple of minutes later the Tornado siren went off and even tho the sky looked kinda cloudy we decided to keep on swimming for a few minutes more, until one of my neighbors came over to give us a speech about how we should not be swimming when there is bad weather and the siren was going off, at least that's what I think he said I put no attention, he really needed to go back to his place and mind his own business. But Anna and me decided that it was best to get out now and go get some dinner. Once we got back inside we changed into clean clothes and went to this place called 'Crossroads Delicatessen' to eat dinner. We all got burgers and fries, my little brother came a long too. This was my first time at this restaurant even tho I live near the area and pass it all the time. It was very beautiful inside, very welcoming and quiet which was great to me. Our waitress was an old friend of ours so it was really nice to see her. And also the restaurant is own by a friend and old neighbors dad. After we got done eating Anna wen't back home because it was getting really dark and windy and it was also raining. So today was a great day, swimming and dinner was good. So anyways the photo above is Anna and me after we got done swimming. Anna is not the type of person who likes to get her photo taken at all, she's a very private person so this is a rare moment of us taking a picture together. And it is also a rare moment for me because as hard as it is to believe i'm not into sharing photos of me and my friends or family with the world. I'm a very private person when it comes to them because I'm the one who has chosen a career to be public and not them and I respect their privacy very much. Anyways I hope everyone is having a great spring, summer is coming up soon which i'm very excited about, I will let you all know what I am up to, sending lots of love to all of you,

Hot or Cute?
CUTE, I am all up for cute %100 when it comes to someone I like, hot is good to look at, but hot is a thing of the past or the mind. When it comes to someone I like for a relationship it’s gotta be cute, inside and out, so adorable.

Summer or Winter?
SUMMER of course, I live in Minnesota and while winter is nice, it’s too cold and not as fun as the summer time but still nice sometimes.

Spring or Fall?
SPRING, I love to see the green grass grow and leaves and everything coming back to life. I also love that the warmer weather is coming.

Night or Day? 
DAY, I really want to say night, I really do because i’m a night person and I have more fun at night when I get to do something. But most of my everyday stuff happens during the day. I get to see and explore more during the day then night. Plus I am mostly sleeping during the night time when I have nothing to do during the night so i'm a day person.

Modeling or Acting? 
ACTING, I wanted to be an actor seems I was very little but I've always been very shy and in my teen years very insecure. I always wanted to see myself play cool characters in TV but now I also want to be on the big screen. But I love modeling just as much as acting, modeling brought me confidence and it’s something that I feel I have master at, so it no longer comes as a big challenge like it used too. I own a lot to modeling but it’s not something I wanted to do, it’s something I was told to do.

Coca Cola or Pepsi? 
PEPSI, i’m having Pepsi right now, but I had Coke a few days ago, they taste the same to me, there both good, I just choose Pepsi because i’m drinking it right now, but besides that they're both really good, give me any and i’ll drink it.

MacDonalds or Burger King? 
BURGER KING, i’ve been eating there seems I was little and every time I go there I get the same thing, a kids meal. But I also added more to my food now because a kids meal is not enough. I also eat at MacDonalds every now and then, but it's not my favorite.

Running or Biking? 
BIKING, I always loved biking seems I was very little, I haven’t biked much for years, I have actually forgotten how to ride a bike now, but I was a master at it when I was younger.

Books or Movies? 
MOVIES, don’t be silly while I do enjoy reading, movies always have my heart.

Outdoors or Indoors? 
OUTDOORS, I love nature, exploring new things and just the fresh air outside. I’m indoors a lot but outdoors is my all. 
 
 
So this morning I got my hands dirty by making a home made Terrarium. I had a 'Starbucks' glass coffee bottle laying around in my room so I peel off the front and back stickers, washed it off by rubbing off all the sticky stuff leftover by the tape with a sponge and dish soap. After I washed it I went outside, collected some small rocks of all sizes, mostly medium and gently dropped them in the glass bottle. Then I dug some moist dirt from the ground and poured it inside the glass bottle, a good amount because when you water it, it will wash some of the dirt to the bottom where the rocks are. Anyways after the rocks and dirt, I got some green moss, grass, and some small plants that where in the ground. I put the long plants in first and then dropped some more dirt in. And then I put the grass and small plants towards the sides of the glass bottle, not in the center but the sides. After I had planted the plants and grass, I added the moss on top being very careful not to cover the plants. Moss is great to work with because you can use small pieces and still make it look great once it's all cover. I used a long stick to help me place and move some of the things in there. After I was all done with the outside things I cam back indoors, washed my hands and got one of my little toys that where on my desk that you get in the .50 cent machines at stores and dropped it and carefully placed it where it looked good. Then I added water carefully, all around until it filled the bottom part where the rocks are. After that I was all done and I placed it on my window, but you can placed them anywhere in the house. All of this took me about 15 minutes and it was a really fun project for me. Much Love

So summer is just around the corner and that means it’s time for some summer reading. Yes I know what a lot of you are thinking, reading? in the summer? talk about having a life. But I do have a life as matter of fact I have a very busy life. This is my first time doing some summer reading, yes I have read during the summer before specially when the 6&7 Harry Potter books came out, I was outside glue to the book. But besides that I haven’t done a lot of reading in the summer time. Books have never been my thing and when you are younger all you want to do is be outside, swimming, exploring the world and hang out with friends, not be sitting down and reading a book. But this summer it’s gonna be different for me in the reading part. I am actually very excited about my summer reading I got all these cool books picked out that I can’t wait to get my hands on and sit down on a tree somewhere and start reading them. I never been a fan of reading, specially those books your teacher would give you to read and you were forced to read a bunch of chapters a day no matter how busy you were gonna be that day. But now I’m really into reading, for me reading is that special moment where I get to relax and have some me time. Everyone needs some alone time for at least five minutes everyday to relax, especially before going to bed to let the long day go and start a new and fresh one in the morning. But anyways my love of reading came back during one of my senior classes which was an ACT prep class. If there is one thing I got out of that class is my love of reading because everything else I was bad at. That class was hard stuff for me, but thankfully I had an amazing, wonderful teacher who was understanding. But anyways it was the book ‘Sarah’s Key’ that brought my joy of reading back. It was the first book I read for that class and the one I loved the most. It reminded me how great books are, as I read ‘Sarah’s Key’ I could see the picture, feel the emotion and feel the pain and for me that has always been hard to do because I never took the time to understand the book, all I wanted to do when I picked up a book is read it and be done with it. ‘Sarah’s Key’ made me think, wonder, and I could not put the book down at night, it was that great. After reading ‘Sarah’s Key’, I joined the school’s book club and in the book club we had to read a different book for each meeting, any book we wanted, it could even be one we were reading for a class and we had to talk about the book, while having cookies and milk of course. Oh and did I tell you, I was the only guy in the club? I know guys really? you need to start reading some more, you would be amazed at the new worlds a book can open for you. But anyways after High School, during the summer I read ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’ By JK Rowling, before I saw the 7th movie and this was my second time reading this book seems it had come out in my Freshmen year. After that I read ‘Modelland” By Tyra Banks, it had just come out so I got it to see what it was all about and it was really good, I even wrote a review on it. Soon after ‘Modelland’ I read “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone’ By JK Rowling and this was my first time reading it, the only Harry Potter books I read before where the 5th, 6th and 7th, but I don’t count the 5th because when I read it I didn't get the picture at all, as I said I read books to finish them not to enjoy them. I read the 1st book so I could be ready for Pottermore. Something that I really liked about ‘Sarah’s Key’ and ‘Modelland’ is that I got to picture the characters myself, unlike the Harry Potter books I had the characters in my head seems I had seen the movies before I read the books. But anyways the books that I got so far are ‘The Hunger Games’ By Suzanne Collins, ‘The Good Dream’ By Donna VanLiere, ‘Tarizon: Civil War Volume 2’ By William Manchee, ‘Illogical Nonsense’ By Janet McNulty, ‘Battle Hymn of the Tiger Daughter’ by Diana Holquist, ‘Zsa Zsa Gabor, My Story Written For Me’ By Gerold Frank, and ‘How To Catch A Man, How To Keep A Man, and How To Get Rid Of A Man’ By Zsa Zsa Gabor. The book by Gerold Frank was written on 1960 and I have the first edition of the book, so that's really cool to own a book from that long ago. And the one write by Zsa Zsa Gabor came out in 1970, but I have the pocket book type and that one came out in 1971, and it was only .95 Cents back then. It also has a cigarette ad in the middle of the book, something you won’t see today inside a book you buy. I got the book written by Zsa Zsa because one i’m a fan of hers and the other to make videos about it, because it’s about relationships and I thought it would be fun to make videos and blogs about that for all of you, and I also heard it was funny, Zsa Zsa was a funny lady back in her days. But anyways I am planning on starting my summer reading in June, with two books, ‘The Good Dream’ and ‘The Hunger Games’. ‘The Good Dream’ will be my morning/afternoon book and ‘The Hunger Games’ will be my bedtime book. I will make a review for the books once i’m finished with them and let you know how they are. We’ll I will talk to all of you soon, Much Love
