Chocolate Hazelnut Review

Pinkberry yet again came out with another flavor, chocolate hazelnut frozen yogurt. It has decadent chocolate with hazelnut pieces mixed in for a sinful flavor. It's not too light or too heavy on taste, it also doesn't have a aftertaste like some flavors. You can taste the hazelnut pieces in the yogurt, I was very impress with Pinkberry, it didn't taste like yogurt either it tasted more like ice cream, which I love. You can get it as is in the picture with; roasted hazelnut pieces, crushed hazelnut wafer rolls and chocolate sauce.

The only thing is, Pinkberry took out the regular chocolate flavor so if you are expecting to get the regular chocolate frozen yogurt it's not going to be there. I had mine mixed with the strawberry frozen yogurt with granola, fresh strawberries, pineapples and Oreo bits. Next time I'll try the defaulted toppings that's in the picture, but if you love hazelnut plus chocolate this is a must try. My absolute favorite.

Texting Extremist

Lately I've been getting bombarded with text messages from my friends. Mainly about everyday things or how you doing kind of things. I have no problem with getting those types of text messages from time to time, not every single day or multiple messages of the same subject. If you are going to ask me those type of questions in much detail, I rather talk to you on the phone instead. I don't want to type up my entire life story in a text message, let alone you get a certain amount of characters per text message.

It just takes too long to type, abbreviate, and to explain in detail without taking too long to respond to the question. Plus my friends have the unlimited text messaging package which I can't afford, even if I had the funds to get it I wouldn't because it'll give my friends the excuse to text me more without even calling me once in awhile. I only text when I need to and when there is no way I can make a phone call. Sometimes we need that interpersonal conversation because it's personable, besides we are not robots. I don't even remember how some of my friends sound like, it's been a long time since I heard their voices.

What are your thoughts on text messaging too much?

So Far So Good

I hope everyone's weekend was good, I accomplished my mines yesterday. Today was the first day of being on the floor at work. I set up shop! meaning I set the printer to my computer, got all necessary docs for students and got my schedule. I worked a few students without too much problem, I'm still in the new phase trying to get used to being on my own for the most part.

All in all, I did pretty well on my first day out of training. I know every once in awhile I'll get some different challenges because every scenario is different, which I don't mind the challenge. I've learned with this job you'll have to have confidence, if you run across something that you are not sure of always ask questions. I also learned that everyone makes mistakes, just learn from them and make improvements.

Today's Agenda

On today's agenda I will be getting some frozen yogurt, every Sunday is typically frozen yogurt day. Usually Sunday's are my leisure days like; doing some laundry, running errands, cleaning the house, and study my materials for work. One of my guilty pleasures is frozen yogurt and cupcakes, since it's still summertime why not take advantage of eating frozen yogurt before summer ends.

I had a good night's sleep, watch the Sunday service on TV, I was able to vent on here yesterday and I wanted to treat myself for all the hard work I put into my final on Friday. So I'm taking advantage of my days off before the daily grind begins.

I hope everyone enjoy the rest of their weekend.

Sometimes Love is NEVER Enough

I need to vent right now, usually I don't vent on the internet, which is the worse thing ever but because there is no one I can vent to right now so why not do it here right? I want to be heard. This is all for the women because I'm speaking on their behalf... Girl Power!!! so this might be a little offensive to men. So don't read if you don't want to hear me complaining about you men.

I'm only speaking on my own experiences, opinions and my own observations so lately men have been getting on my last nerves and I'm a little unhappy at the moment. I feel like you guys lack communication skills and comprehension when it comes to relationships. Y'all tend to tune us out or have selective hearing when we are talking to you. This also happens when you are watching TV, it's like we don't exist. They say men are simple and we are complicated, I really really really think you guys are NOT simple if that's the case y'all wouldn't be single. You want us to be pretty, shut the F up most of the time, not have emotions or opinions, cook, clean, and give it up daily. Pretty much just cater to you 24/7 without talking, just like a robot.

Women should be able to express how they feel about something without getting a smart ass remark from men like, is it the end of the world? why are you dwelling on this? it's not a big deal, you are overreacting or you are so emotional. I want to be able to ask questions without getting the attitude or getting snapped on. What happen to feeling you are the center of their universe? feeling number 1 in their life or when they are anxious to see you or hear your voice before they go to bed or get up in the morning. I miss having that in my life, it's a great feeling when someone makes you feel like a queen. If you really love someone you'll do EVERYTHING in your power to make them happy. I know for a fact that a lot of men don't do nothing to make their partners happy, it's either they are completely lazy, selfish, inexperience in relationships, clueless or just don't give a crap. Like I said, they expect us to be pretty, have no emotions, cook and clean and give it up on a daily basis.

I want to feel understood, I want to be heard, I want someone to appreciate me and I want to feel important in their life. Maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic or too much of a good person. I think it's completely BS when I hear that if a man treats his mother with the up most respect then he'll treat his woman the same, not true at all. And why that exes treat you so awful in the relationship and when you leave them they apologize and want you back? and promise to change. First of all, why treat me like crap in the first place, and second, why are you realizing now, after the fact!!! I'm out of your life you decide that you want to change for the better to get me back?

Relationships are hard work and if that person is worth everything you'll work hard to keep them. Relationships are like buildings, you have to have the foundation to build a good structure so it can be strong, without it the building will fall.

I Passed with Flying Colors

I've been slacking on blogging lately only because I've been working hard at my new job, making sure I'm understanding the whole processing procedure. There is a lot to learn about processing in financial aid. Training takes 4 weeks and at the end is a final, the final is determined if you are competent on the floor or not. This shows the company that you've learned and grasps the basics and will be able to do your job correctly.

Right before taking the final we had a review on all the material we've learned over the past 4 weeks. Everything we were going over seemed fine, I knew the material and my notes were organized enough, well, I rewrote them so it does look organized and not confusing. But when it was time to take the final I got really nervous. A lot of things was going through my head like, what if I don't pass? what's going to happen to my job if I don't pass? I had to take a deep breath and calm my mind for clarity.

It took me 5 1/2 hours to finish my final, that's including double checking my answers and the ones I skipped over. I finally took a lunch break, spoke with my teammates and shadowed before they called me back in for the final results. I was super nervous because I didn't want to fail, I'm such an overachiever and I hate losing or failing at anything. All in all, I passed my final with flying colors and I would have had a much higher score if I didn't make silly mistakes but I passed that's all that matters. Whoot!!!

Photo of the Day

There is a teaser trailer all over the internet for the new Superman movie: "Man of Steel". The trailer consist of two different narrators, Russell Crowe or Kevin Costner but the trailer is the same for both narrators. Also if you watch the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises movie it will show the trailer in the previews before the movie starts.

Man of Steel is coming out next year and from the looks of it, it might be way better than the previous superman movie.

Batman: The Dark Knight Rises Review

I'm a big comic book/movie fan, so I've wanted to see this movie when it first came out but due to a horrific tragedy with the movie shooting in Colorado I was too paranoid to go. With that being said, I finally did put on my big girl shoes and went to go see it this past weekend. There are no spoiler alerts here because I don't want to ruin anything so others that didn't see it can enjoy it.

This is the third installment of the Batman trilogies, well Christopher Nolan's version. There are some of the original characters like Christian Bale as Batman, the butler, the mayor etc. but there was new additions like Cat woman played as Anne Hathaway and the villain Bane played as Tom Hardy. So the synopsis of the movie is after 8 years of "The Dark Knight" terrorists leader Bane comes to town and pushes Gotham City police forces to their limits. This also forces Batman to resurface from retirement after taking the fall for Harvey Dent's crimes. He has to save the city even though the city thinks he's the enemy.

Long story short, I liked the movie, even though at times I became paranoid in the movie theater. Watching people come in, sitting down, getting up etc. I enjoyed the movie for the most part. The movie is about 2 hours and 45 minutes but it didn't seem that way, there was enough action to keep the plot going. I wanted to also add that the character Bane was really good in this movie. Most people like the second installment a little bit better but this movie did its part also. It's a go see in my book.
