On Feb 24, 2023, I got an offer to work for the County of Riverside, and a couple of days got an email that
I am debt free from Student loans.
What a Big Blessing I have been having; those were the top 2 blessings I got that mean so much to me.
It's like the Holy water came to my place and washed everything, and I am starting fresh again its like
God gave me a new beginning with my goals to achieve them to continue growthing...
I have overcome to much in life and so happy I am here, standing here and supporting; other people.
I'm at this stage of mind.
I am preparing myself to continue to overcome and be
part of my community.
I love my community; here in Riverside.
The culture they're bringing to everyone is outstanding; feeling living in Riverside, and now with an open door, I got with the County of Riverside to continue overcoming a difference in life in my community.
Have you ever felt like that and had a Big blessing in your life.
You want to share it to everyone?
Please share it.
Love; to hear blessing moments in your life.

I am so happy for Pau Gasol and honored to see on
Pau Gasol Jersey Retirement Ceremony.
What an amazing; experience he had and an honor to
see his Jersey next to his good friend Kobe; that
means a lot to him and Kobe being next to each other
while they played together.
I enjoyed every moment of watching them play.
Believe it or not, my first Jersey of the Lakers is
Pau Gasol. Yup, Pau Gasol.
I am honored to have his jersey since 2008.
I got so emotional watching his speech. I can totally;
relate to him and see how far he got, with his skills and
knowledge, and also with his great friend Kobe.
I also have a great friend like that, and thanks to that person; I overcome.
I would like to see myself one day like Pau Gasol's experince.

He turns 8
We called him David The T-REX since he was a baby; he's all about the dinosaurs, and guess what?
He still is... and Guess what? I became his fan.
David mostly wears dinosaur outfits; he always rocks them.
(When we went to Universal Studios in Hollywood for his early birthday)
(You can follow him @davidthetrex at IG)
He finally got a David The T-Rex t-shirt, I even got an Auntiesaurus t-shirt, and his older brother and their mom (my sister) for David's Birthday Party.
Now David got me wearing Dinosaurus t-shirts to become his Cool T-REX Tia when I am around him.
Here are some other pictures of his birthday.
Have you ever had someone so obesssed on something and you end up too?

After many years living in Riverside, California.
I finally visit the Heritage House Museum
and know the story behind the Victoria House.
This house is from 1891
It's always nice to see and know about the history in your area.

Do I like Bad Bunny Music?
Let me tell you a story. I'm NOT a big fan of reggaeton. The only reggaeton music I like is Calle 13.
After I reunited with my cousin and her friend in early 2021, I noticed my cousin is all into Bad Bunny. she is in love with him as a person and his talent; what is all about it. I did mention to her I'm not a reggeaton kind of girl. I didn't like the song "Yo Perreo Sola" She explained to me; the meaning of that song.
This is the area I meet my cousin and her friend.
After that, I was curious about Bad Bunny songs. I started listening to Bad Bunny while I was at home cleaning, and every time I post something in my stories on my IG account nanzdelatorre it's funny my cousin notices what I'm playing in the background. The first thing she tell's me " wow! You, listing to Bad Bunny" To be honest, I was giving it a try to his music because my cousin always gives that powerful message to everyone about his music. Every time I call her, and she answers by saying "Hello," I always say " Yo perreo sola" she laughs, or she keeps singing the song.
So, my cousin and her friend are big fans of Bad Bunny. I have been hanging out a lot with them at Skyland Ale Brewing / Marsicos a mi Manera.
They always start singing Bad Bunny songs.
I do love seeing them in that vibe.
They make the party go.
Let's fast forward...
At the beginning of 2022, my cousin got her ticket to see Bad Bunny in the front roll. I am so happy and proud of her for attending; his concert. Before; she walked to the stadium, she called me via facetime to tell me the news. She is there seeing her reaction of joy makes me feel so happy she shares that with me. It was the best feeling seeing someone so happy and excited.
She made my night while I was at home.
After; that day. I saw a lot of videos of the concert, and I fell in love with that vibe and all the music he was bringing to the audience. I got myself; more involved with his music with the El Último Tour del Mundo 2022.
here's one of the songs I crossover with this song.
and this is the one I like in 2020 because of the beat of the song.
after getting involved with his music every time I hang out with the girls
I am singing " mami que tu quieres" and
bring Bad Bunny vibe.
I crossover at the beginning of March 2022. I already google him and youtube him who he is and how he got himself into the music district I do give him props for what he's about and what he does for the people.
I end up going to the concerts with the girls who got me into Bad Bunny music.
We also end up going on a paint-n-sip date while listing to Bad Bunny music.
Have you ever crossover a type of music you didn't like before and now you do?

Most people are scared or fear of changing, and to be honest. I don't know why we're all scared to let stuff go or people and let the nature of life guide us where we belong.
I enjoy letting go and facing my fears; tomorrow. I'm going to; revisit the Grand Canyon after three years of facing my fear. I am talking in general. I am scared of heights and other phobias I have. I went around this time. Perfect timing for me, these three years have been a challenge for me. I was able to accomplish some of my fears. Don't get me wrong; there were moments it was hard, fun, adventure, learning experience; you named it.
I am glad. I was able to; experience everything I had during these three years of facing my fears. Now is my next step to be fearless.
I am going again and seeing the Grand Canyon with a different mindset than three years ago. I am also going to revisit Sedona.
Dont be sacred of changes is; the best thing can happen to you; when you know.
You dont belong there...
Life gives you surprise in life; then you be more grateful in life when you are in the right path. Count your blessings.

I am honored and blessed I was able to meet my great-grandfather, Anastacio De La Torre he died at the age of 97.I believe I was 7 or 8 years old years.
I am blessed. I still have my godfather (grandfather) his my grandfather for my baptists. We're celebrating his 99 birthday this year on September 11.
I keep telling my dad we have some strong genes meaning being strong, healthy, and living for a long time.
My godfather, at the age of 99 years old, let me tell you, has a great memory. That's amazing! A couple of years ago. I interviewed; my godfather (Grandfather) if they were at war at that time growing up, and he said. "Yes, it was Guerra Cristero" (Cristero War in Mexico.) He mentioned how it was. At that time, he was around four years old. That says a lot being that age and remembering every detail. It was amazing; to know a little more about the history of Mexico and what my grandfather lived that day.
Being 99 years old, he can still walk using a cane to help him balance, and you have to speak louder to hear him; other than that, his in perfect shape.
