My mom has always told me this story:
Her dad filled picked up a large empty mayonnaise jar and filled it with rocks, rocks about 2” in diameter. He then asked her if the jar was full. She said it was. Her dad then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. He asked her again if the jar was full.
She agreed it was. Then he picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
“Now,” he said, “I want you to recognise that this is your life.
The rocks are the important things - your family, your partner, your health, and your children - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car. The sand is everything else, the small stuff. If you put the sand into the jar first, there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children.
There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, give a dinner party and fix the car. Take care of the rocks first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”
How I found out about tumblr?.. all day in school i always heard people talking about it and about their blogs and stuff. so i went home to check it out. i made an account one thing led to the next and now im addicted :D
I’m thankful for waking up everyday and getting to live it like it’s my last. What happened to our friend Andy really hit me. It made me wake up from a dream and step into reality. I started to realize that WOW! don’t take life for granted cause anything can happen within the blink of an eye. You never know what you have till it’s gone. It’s funny how everyone is dramatized by this horrible thing. I understand it was bad but you can’t be afraid. You have to take risks to make it big sometimes. Be very thankful that today you got another day to be with the ones you love the most. My Love, Respect, and Prayers go to Andy Oquendo and his Family. <3

So today was the IB pinning ceremony. I wasn’t really excited at first i was just like yea okay whatever.. but as I sat with my best friend Jeannell Franceschi and we talked and looked amongst our classmates we realized that WOW!! we are more than classmates we are one big family. We had spent already 3 years copying homework, cheating on test, pulling all nighters, Starbucks runs, printing stuff for each other, etc. all to realize NOW we are juniors and NOW our last two years wont be easy like the first 2 years slack.. NOW that we were pinned today it welcomed us to many more of those all nighters, working in the FIU library, barnes and noble, cramming for test. Today was JUST the beginning to a stressful, hetic, crazy, fun, wild, and long 2 years. All for ONE thing to get our dipolma and say DAMN! that was DEFINITELY worth my 4 years in highschool! :) I Love You IB class of 2012!! <3
