What do you say when...

...when people ask you to donate money for a good cause?

I always get embarrassed when people who work at the registers ask me if I want to donate money to organizations that help starving kids in the third world countries, brave soldiers who fight for their country, cancer prevention/treatment, march of dimes, etc etc.

I usually just wince in my heart and hand over $1, but this is getting old quick. I'm not saying that I'm a sucky human being (although, after the previous post, many of you might think that I'm AM one of those sucky human beings that exploit other ppl's privacy), and I'm not saying that I DON'T want to help out those people, but in today's economy, every bit counts. Besides, I don't really know where the money is going in the end. For all I know, the whole donation thing could've been a hoax.

So, to all my lovely readers: Have you ever been in one of these situations? What were your excuses? What did you do when they asked you to donate?

Thanks!

P.S. I know that celebs are real people, and that it sucks that they have no privacy, but it's a price to pay in order to make multi-million dollars. I'm not saying that Robert and Kristen are bad people, but they are not the Edward/Bella I had in mind. I know that Edward/Kristen were both involved in other great productions before Twilight, but it's like after seeing Harry Potter, you can not see Danielle Radcliffe without thinking Harry Potter. Yes, he was/will be in other productions, but he will always be known as Harry Potter.

P.P.S. For those of you wondering who HASN'T tried pot, I haven't. Never have and never will. I don't drink, I don't smoke, and I don't do drugs. I know a lot of you think that marijuanna isn't a drug, but RIGHT NOW, it is still illegal. Besides, from what I've heard, it gives you the munchies, so people who are watching their figure shouldn't try it. LOL!

More graduation pics

So, sorry for the lack of updates. Being w/o an USB cable sucks! I have so many cute pictures but I can't upload them!!!

I took these pics from my BF's mom's camera, so enjoy them for the time being. I will do a formal update soon.

This is me walking....I'm 2nd from the left. HOLY orange hair!


Me w/ my BF's HUGE family! Isn't his sister gorgeous?


My mom's friend Oscar, me and my mom


My mom and I! Yes, we are Louis Vuitton addicts (well, she is more addicted than I am)


My wonderful BF (with his "Do Me" tie) and I. Yes, he got me roses!

I think this is a more clear version of the pic I uploaded last time.


This one is clearer too!


Anyway, thanks for viewing and the blog will be back to normal postings in June.

Thanks for hanging in there!

A little graduation preview...

I'm so sorry guys! I've been so busy dealing with graduation, friends and families, and packing to leave for Miami. I don't really have time to go into details, but I will show you guys a few pics to tide you over til I get back in June.

The pictures this time are the ones in my camera. It's only my BF's graduation. Pics of my graduation are on my mom's camera. I will upload them when I get back.

Waiting for the BF's ceremony to start... My mom and I! Damn she looks like my sister!



My BF and I after the ceremony!


His mom, me, and my mom! My mom dressed like Michelle Obama that night!


My mom's friend Oscar, my mom, the BF and I!


I love to gossip with my friend Martine! BTW, Firehouse Subs are the BOMB!


I was trying on the cap and gown.


After my graduation, my family and I went to St. Augustine for fun.


Will update more later. Thanks for viewing!
