Conversations with My Little Brother

Now that I’ve finally upgraded to a “smart phone”, I can take screen shots of conversations. Bahaha >=] It was such a shame that I couldn’t do this before. But fear not, I can document them now!

A little background on my relationship with my bro. We go on a ton of food adventures, and usually when we’re together, we just eat the whole town. Like so:

Broski

Cupcakes

He just transferred to UCD, living the big boy life. We occasionally call/webcam each other, but during the week when he’s in school, and I’m at work, we text. Here are some convos we had recently:

We’re so silly. Thanks for always finding a way to make me laugh Aran. Happy hump day!

The Color Run 2013

Crossed off one of my yearly bucket list items! The Color Run! Our team was Cutting Colories 😉 Cute, no? Hahaha we also made our own tutus! It was a 5k run, with color stations every kilometer. The cool thing about this run is that it isn’t timed, so I saw an array of people. From old to mamas with babies in strollers, and big brothers running with their little sisters!  🙂 Overall it was SO MUCH FUN!

The aftermath was ridiculous. We stuffed our faces with Shabu Shabu and milk tea! It took forever and a day to wash all the color out, but it was all worth it. Even if I have pink boogers for a few days ;).

Rules to Live By

I read this off of AMS Design Blog and I just had to share.

Sometimes I feel that I may know something, and it kind of just…sits at the back of my mind. It doesn’t get done. There are no actions. Just because I know something, doesn’t mean I’m actively thinking about it. Reading a quote such as the one below is a nice refresher on what kind of a person I want to be, and how I can build my character around it.

It’s worth the read, promise. 🙂

Rules to Live By

Laugh as often as you can, the more you laugh the funnier life becomes.
Laugh at bad jokes and laugh at yourself, life is far too short to take yourself too seriously and it’s better to be ridiculous than to be boring.
Never assume that the people you love know how you feel, tell them, show them, convince them and prove it to them every day.
Listen first, then talk.
Defend your point of view but accept when you are wrong.
Learn to apologize, to admit your mistakes and learn to accept compliments.
Take care, take your time and take risks.
Make decisions, make mistakes, make fun of yourself and make friends of strangers.
Be modest but not invisible and always give credit were credit’s due.
Don’t be too quick to judge, first impressions are just that, impressions.
Be patient, be positive, and be vulnerable.
Be happy, be sad and above all be yourself.
Surround yourself with people you admire and never be ashamed to ask for help.
Embrace your flaws, perfection is boring.
Do things that you are passionate about, and you will soon realise that your life is full of things that you love.
Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, life is messy, get stuck in.
Don’t be a victim, be a survivor.
Learn to bask in the sunshine and dance in the rain.
Remember that youth isn’t wasted on the young, youth is just matter of perspective. Stop complaining about your age, in ten years you’ll wish you were the age you are now.
Never settle, never give up and never let go of your dreams, regret is far worse than failure.
Whatever happens, at the end of every day step back, take a deep breath and smile.
