Set The Fire to The Third Bar..

When J joined the army it was really hard for me to get through the day without thinking of him and then later on at night crying and letting it all out.. I had a really hard time accepting the fact that he was doing this for us and our future, the thought of him having left me gave me nightmares.. literally. Although I would put on a happy face, I was really miserable. And so I heard this song and it really comforted me. It's about long distance relationships and the love that they both have for each other even though they're miles away and just how much they long for each other. It's really beautiful.

"Set The Fire to The Third Bar"

I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines
The distance from 'A' to where you'd be
It's only finger-lengths that I see
I touch the place where I'd find your face
My finger in creases of distant dark places

I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I've found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

Their words mostly noises
Ghosts with just voices
Your words in my memory
Are like music to me

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
I, I pray that something picks me up
And sets me down in your warm arms

After I have travelled so far
We'd set the fire to the third bar
We'd share each other like an island
Until exhausted, close our eyelids
And dreaming, pick up from
The last place we left off
Your soft skin is weeping
A joy you can't keep in

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
And I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

I'm miles from where you are,
I lay down on the cold ground
and I, I pray that something picks me up
and sets me down in your warm arms

I absolutely hate that I can't sleep at night! I am seriously up till about 5 am every night and then for the next 6 hours I toss and turn :( I have no idea what's wrong with me but I am going crazy over here! I hate insomnia!! I'm hoping once I get my wisdom teeth out that'll help and I'm sure that this monthly gift of mine isn't helping either sorry that was tmi haha.. So I've been educating myself online about lots of things lol.. I came across the illuminati which is a secret society and like they're world leaders and politicians who want to take over the world and stuff, it's pretty intense! They're like a power behind the throne.. I totally believe that a lot of our world events are being controlled by these people.. No wonder I don't like any of them.. Also some of you are going to laugh at my theory but I think Tupac is still alive hahaha.. Okay I always thought he was dead until I started looking stuff up and there are sooo many clues and facts that lead to me believing he's still alive.. He was a very smart individual.. And ya I'm so retarded lol well that's all.. I guess I'll start getting ready for the day :) peace!

This weekend was definitely an exciting one!
About 2 years ago I was doing some work as a movie extra for the movie The Perfect Game, just recently they released it and from what I've been told I come out in it clearly during their little league world series scene. I'm such a dork and I would get excited over that.. Anyways you should all go watch it.. I'm wearing a yellow dress FYI and my brothers and cousins are in it too.. we had so much fun being in it :)
We finally got our furniture we had been waiting for! No more sleeping on a full bed haha.. We obviously still need to decorate and get a few more key pieces but it's totally looking more like a home and I love it.. If anyone has any interior designing advice please let me know..

Our lovely bed, it's missing pillows :)
The mirror and dresser..
J's favorite of course.. He loves his video games lol
Leather couches.. and missing pillows as well..
Our cute little dining table.. I want to put something in the middle but not sure what..

We just had a blast this whole weekend. From our Friday night adventures out on the town and the beach to our super late night, early mornings watching movies and playing kings cup and just hanging out at our house. Vincenzo, Doc, and Collins are awesome! J also made me breakfast in bed which was sooo cute! He totally made my day.. Then they cleaned our house, how amazing are they :)

When out and about, there are some really talented people out here..

Oh and this is just too funny.. J is gona kill me!!
I love you babe haha

When J's working..

Okay so J has been working these odd hours of 1 to 9 am.. and I mean they're okay because for the most part I'm usually sleeping but these past 2 nights I've been an insomniac and I'm left with either watching tv, playing video games, or going online.. Fun right?.. Anyways I've chosen to be online and on YouTube there's this Taiwanese boy that's become a big internet sensation, Lin Yu Chun, he's like an amazing singer the next Susan Boyle.. haha.. Well apparently he dances too.. It's pretty funny.. I find him fascinating because he looks like a cartoon.. Just see for yourselves..

Yesterday J and I went to the Sunset Beach to check it out and it's like extremely cute!! They have it closed off so that you can swim, relax, play some water sports and also because there are jellyfish out deeper in the water. There are little cabanas, restaurants, bars, etc. all around too. Super chill place.. I love it :)

Saying bye is always hard..

The hardest thing about coming to Japan was having to say bye to all my family and friends.. When I got the news I was leaving, I literally had 2 days to pack and leave! It was so sudden and I didn't get to spend enough time with everyone. Luckily my friends and family came over the day before I left to spend some time with me, and cry.. lol
Liz and Keioni
Alysia, Liz, Roxy, Michelle, Keioni, Don, Me, Aaron, and Sean :)
These next pics were at the airport.. There was a lot of hugging and crying happening here too..
Uncle Bryan and Aunt Lily
Mom and Dad
Jackie and Shaniece (hope I spelled it right) :)

We all have red eyes from crying so much :(

So I've been living on the beautiful island of Okinawa for about 3 weeks already and I absolutely love it here. It's so beautiful, the natives here are really nice and polite, and my hubby and I are having some really great adventures here together! Look how gorgeous it is :)
