Just to inform all of my two readers, my biography on the “Meet the Chicas” page will be under construction. We ask that you please pardon our dust.

Why am I updating my bio, you ask?

Well, my friends, it is due to tragic breaking news. Please have a seat if you are the fainting kind.

My friends, it pains me to tell you but my boo thang and I have officially called it quits. We’ve actually been separated for a few weeks now. Both he and I will remain friends for the sake of the kids – okay, there are no kids but it’s pretty damn funny when celebrities use that line.

Now, move along, folks. There’s nothing else to see here.


French Kiss Martinis July 9, 2011

I know, I know. I haven’t existed for a while but don’t say I didn’t warn you. I made it clear that summer grad classes were kicking me in the ass. I’m basically writing because I’m way too many martinis deep. Martinis are disgusting, by the way. Anyways, I’m trying my best to type slowly.

So it’s nights like these that I regret coming to Pittsburgh. I feel bad because if I never would’ve come here in the first place I never would’ve met my friend Kameron (who went back home for the summer & has decided to head off to the Navy) and my boyfriend. I love and appreciate these two individuals.

However, I sometimes feel guilty. I feel guilty because most likely, if I remained in Chicago, I would’ve probably been amateur boxing by now. Boxing was something I loved. I would’ve had my friends and family. I would’ve been in the city that I loved. In other words, I would’ve been happier. I just doidnt see it back then.

I always wanted something new though. And honestly, after two and a half years of being single and seeing countless of guys, more than I can count on my two hands, I wanted someone who wasn’t an idiot. Seriously. I got tired of the countless of dates where in the first five minutes of talking to the dude I thought he was an idiot. My girly friends always thought I yearned for something more when in reality I just wanted a damn companion. I’m just not that “yearn for something more” type oif girl.

Now that I do have what I want in terms of something new and steady guy, a part of me is still not happy. That’s what makes it sad and makes me feel guilty. If I were to finish my business here in Pittsburgh this moment, I would leave for Chicago tomorrow.

I’m just not resilient enough and honestlyz, (since Kameron is now gone) one person isn’t enough to sustain me as a sane human being. I have been going through so much mentally that it negatively affected my relationship with my boyfriend. When I was back home in Chicago for the 4th of july weekend I realized that I had to suck it up and change my attitude because if I didn’t, it would make me even more miserable in Pittsburgh.

I don’t know. Too many martinis makes a person over analyze.


Always prepared for the President of the United States June 24, 2011

I always like to look pretty. I like dresses, heels, eyeliner, mascara and red lipstick. I would go out to dinner with my mom and sister a lot. My sister always complained that I would take forever to get ready. It takes work to look cute, you know!

She once said,”Sonia, we’re going to Olive Garden not the ball!”

“But what if I run into the President? I’m not going to look dirty in front of the President!,” I would reply.

My boo thang wouldn’t complain but he would sometimes tell me to take it down a notch. Don’t get him wrong. He always thinks I look pretty in dresses. Its just that when we would be hitting up, let’s say, Double Wide Grill for example, he would tell me to put on my booty shorts instead of my dresses because he felt too dressed down in his jeans.

“But boo,” I said, “What if I run into the President? I want to look nice in front of the President!”

Well, lo and behold! Today, I turned on the morning news, my usual routine as I get ready for work. Turns out that, today, the most famous (and fellow) Chicagoan is visiting Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) here in Pittsburgh. Yes, that’s right. Mr. President Obama is in Pittsburgh and I’m prepared.

I knew I wasn’t crazy and had good reason to look cute. Now, when I meet the President I’ll be looking extra fly. Too bad Mrs. Obama isn’t around. We’ve could’ve shared fashion tips!


A reason why women should invest in getting a boyfriend June 9, 2011

They build things for you. See, my roomie is moving out, therefore, I need to buy new furniture. I hate building things and I hate instructions even more. But you know what? I don’t have to worry about it because I’ll just have my boo thang do it. That’s what incompetent women like me do. We make our boyfriends do it. All we have to do is open a bottle of beer or make a glass of lemonade for them and they’re happy (or at least they pretend to be) to do it.

Ah, yes. Life is good. I have absolutely nothing to worry about.


Walking it off May 31, 2011

I don’t know what it is. Lately, I’ve been drained. I’ve been so drained that it’s taken a toll on me physically and mentally. My body hurts, my back hurts, I have snot in my nose all the time, I can’t focus, can’t remember things and can’t put a coherent sentence together sometimes. A few days ago I told my boyfriend suppressed when I meant oppressed. He looked at me and said, “Boo, you mean oppressed.” Yeah, I’m an idiot. I eat like shit and my nightly snack consists of a beer or two.

Part of me wants to say, “The hell with this,” and go home. But part of me tells me to suck it up. My old school Mexican dad always told me to shut up, suck it up and walk it off. The thing is I don’t know how much longer I can keep sucking (get your mind out of the gutter folks) and walking.

I just want to take a nap.

Excuse me, professor, but my boo thang told me to move your ass. We have a very important Bulls game to watch. Much appreciated!


I Don’t Do Computers May 23, 2011

I’ve been trying to post up something for the past week and I still haven’t. It’s not that I keep forgetting. Or that I’m busy with school. Actually, I like to WordPress because it keeps me from doing school work. The thing is that I need to password protect it and I can’t password protect it from my phone, which means I have to do it through a computer.

And I have a computer. I just don’t turn it on. It’s a pain to turn on. It takes forever to load everything up. I live in an age where I can get a message from someone in .02 seconds. I don’t do waiting. So in order for me to avoid waiting, I just don’t turn on my computer. I haven’t turned it on in weeks. The last paper I worked on was the last time I touched my computer. I know, I know. My boo thang was seriously disturbed by this too.

How do I stay in touch with the outside world then? Through my BlackBerry, which, by the way, isn’t any better. I should just move in with a nice Amish family. I am in Pennsylvania after all.
