Serenity Online

So I got a job to fund my game project, Serenity Online, and I've been extreeeemely busy.

It's good and bad, I guess. I'm not sure which one. I love my job, but I hate the fact that I don't have enough time to code my game more.

I've also been really behind on my blog and my research job and just generally everything.

Bitter-Sweet Summer Time

This post is going to be split between me (Kat) and Alvaro.

I've been having a hard time writing, mainly because of my new job... But I also haven't been able to collect my thoughts and put them into words for some reason...

It's officially summer time, college is over.

I've been meeting a lot of new people lately with my new job, and I've come to realize something... A LOT of us are not doing so well in college, or just not going at all.

Rough Patch & A Tattoo

I've come back from the dead!!!

No, just kidding. In all honesty, it's been a rough week & month in general.

A lot has happened since I wrote my last blog post, and I have so much to catch up on aside from blogging.

I don't want to get into my problems right now though, because I have one big life event I want to talk about: My Tattoo :)

Eight Birthdays in One

So yesterday there was a party at my house, and we were celebrating 8 birthdays! I think my birthday was the only one in March actually, because everyone else is in the month of April.

So to the left is a picture of my mom's cake (it was her 50th birthday), and below are some pictures from the night.

I think this is probably going to replace this week's Wordless Wednesday :P

Kat's Top 6 - Ways to Handle Depression

Aside from showcasing my new baby blue sunny nails (play along with me here, I need something cute and happy in my life haha), I'm going to give you my top 6 ways to handle depression that I use every single day.

It gets to a point where you don't want to let this feeling take control over you anymore. You want control over your feelings and your life... And you need to get out and do something with yourself before you dig yourself a deeper grave.

If you have any other suggestions aside from the ones I'm about to give, please feel free to email me or comment on this blog post :) All help is greatly appreciated during these times.

Happiness Through the Eyes of the Depressed

My boyfriend and a friend were discussing the times they've seen me "depressed" and they were trying to decide which time was the "worst" they've seen me very depressed...

But what really is the "worst"?

I could just be having a bad day and feeling down in the dumps about it. Or my life could be perfectly fine, but I'm just feeling depressed anyways. I really can't decide which one is worse. They're both equally excruciating.

Get UP and OUT

So today was one of those days...

But surprisingly, I've been able to do a lot while feeling depressed.

It's usually "I don't want to get out of bed today, let me just mope here all day and do nothing productive..."

I find myself in this dark hole very often, but I'm handling it better than before, that's for sure.

Wordless Wednesday #1

I found this idea at another blog that I follow [here], and I wanted to give it a try and see how it goes :)

So today I'm just going to post a few pictures that have to do from this past week.

Enjoy! <3

Kat Recommends - Snap Chat

SnapChat: The picture & video texting app that let's you be weird and never regret it. Not to mention, an extremely addicting form of chatting with your friends.

I have not been able to put my phone down or keep my weird faces at bay... You may see some sides of me that no one will ever, ever see again.

Because snapchat doesn't let your friends save the weird pictures you send them ;) hehe

I'm only going to share the ones that are 3 out of 10 on the weirdness scale (10 being the weirdest you will ever see in your entire life).

6 Week Challenge Update - Kitty Edition

So today is just going to be a quick update on this past week :)

I'm also going to share with you the new things I've gotten addicted to, so be warned already... 

I also want to say congratulations to my best friend (see picture on the left of us joking around), for FINALLY getting his number!!! The people involved know what I'm talking about, and I'll fill you guys in at a later date with the whole comical story ;)

For now, I'm going to start the post off with cats...

3 Things About Marriage

Today, I just want to share with you something I read the other day that has been stuck on my mind ever since. I wish I knew exactly who wrote it, but I'll link the page I got it from at least.

It reminds me a lot of the Leo Buscaglia video, and if you haven't seen that, then go to this post [here]. 

Let me know what you guys think of the article :)

Kat's Top 6 - Ways to Be Productive

You have work, or homework, to do... And you've been procrastinating it all weekend.

Then, there you are: The night before, cramming in everything you possibly can into those few hours before it's due. You know you're not sleeping at all until you finish what you have to do. 

Then the next day drags on until you finally reach your bed that night...

Unless you procrastinated something else.

I've been there, and definitely done that many times.

I've finally learned my way out of those habits, and I'm going to share with you what I did to get there :)

I am a SLUT & a 5K Runner!

Yesterday was the first ever Slut Walk Miami at Florida International University... And it was also the opening of registration for the Electric Run in Miami!

I've been pretty excited about both things, especially since I recently talked about the Steubenville Rape case and my current 6 Week Fitness Challenge

I'm glad I could be a part of the Slut Walk and I can't wait to run in the Electric Run, my first ever 5K!

Beauty School Drop Out, Go Back to... Where?

Serenity Online was featured in a blog post / article yesterday by my friend, Melisa Borges, over at New Scoops

It's really exciting to see someone not only write about Serenity Online, but also support it and also share the same enthusiasm as I feel for this project.

Kat Recommends - Nimble Quest

Today's post is going to be very short and sweet, mainly because this game, Nimble Quest, has been so addicting that I've procrastinated everything else, including my blog posts.

Heed my warning: This game is unbelievably fun, creative, and addictive.

6 Week Challenge Update for Fools

Happy April Fools Day everybody!

I'm not really into this whole pranking thing, so you won't have to worry about that from this post. I've seen some pretty good pranks here and there though from other blogs, my favorite being Nerd Fitness' post.

Any who, here's my weekly update on the 6 Week Challenge and a couple of other things I'd like to talk about :)
