Hello YouTube

Today I made the decision to reopen my YouTube channel for good….please check out my cover with the link below!!!

Before I continue, I want to say that the first video is dedicated to my team members, and to all of my kids that I have had the chance to mentor in leading them to know about the love of Jesus. My biggest wish is to continue to grow, and make the ministry into something even bigger. I have learned that sometimes God just wants to take his soldiers away from the comfort zone, and out to the unknown. 
I know for a fact that the calling God is giving me is something bigger then my imagination. However, it is making me nervous due to all the hate, and horrible comments that people make towards a certain type of music. I came to terms that I really can care less, I am ready for all the negative, positive, and even constructing comments. I would really love to share you guys my bucket list, but I won’t because there might be someone out there that might speak negative against my dreams. 

 

I learned to keep quite about my dreams, and goals because people like to speak negativity out to existence. I also learned to make a bucket list of every goal I want to accomplish this year. The only thing left to do is to act on every one of them instead of just dreaming about my goals coming true. It takes so much time, discipline, and a commitment to keep going for each goal. It is never easy but it is not impossible. 

It has been a while that I actually had the chance to sing on YouTube because I couldn’t afford to have the right equipment. After saving up money & working hard, I finally had enough to purchase my equipment!! It is taking a lot of time  to get used to everything because it is a lot to learn. I will be doing covers, vlogs, unboxing, reaction videos, and so much more. So please if you haven’t done so already make sure to subscribe, and if you are starting off your channel let me know to subscribe to yours!!!!

 

Are you following my series, it takes two to tango? If you are in a relationship, I hope my advices help because I am speaking from my own experience. I am thinking of doing a podcast later on so if you are intrestead of hearing me speak besides just reading my blog please let me know. I would like to help out many others out there, and give in my insights or even getting phone calls to personally speak one on one! Follow me on twitter for more inspiration, pintrest to see what I love, and instagram to keep updated! If you have snapchat add me as well to see all my adventures! I am as mishipcm on ALL platforms.
Love ya’ll and stay tuned for more!!! If you already subscribed thank you so much!!! Welcome to the fam!

The End of a Decade

As I sit here thinking about the previous years, the only thing that goes through my mind is, “Dang…Won’t he do it?!” Let’s go way back and see how much I changed. 

  • 2010– Started fresh at Triton college after taking a year off from school, had a job at a hospital, was thinking of starting a blog, deleted my YouTube channel, and I really did not know how to manage my anxiety.
  • 2011– Met my husband by the end of the year (we went to the same college), I was getting ready to graduate, I entered the worship team at my church, and got out from a really toxic relationship. 
  • 2012– Traveled to Colombia, Panama, Guatemala, Florida, and I forgot where else lol! I started taking classes that would help me out in my career, and I spent as much time as I could just figuring out my life.
  • 2013– I took some classes at DePaul University, my husband became my tutor, I lost control of my eating, gained weight, and was getting stressed a lot during school. 
  • 2014– I transferred out of Depaul, went back to triton, my husband became my boyfriend, and from that point on my whole life changed. I was able to reconnect with my creative self and started writing songs all over again. 
  • 2015– Met a few people that I am so glad they are out of my life, started to control my anxiety a little more, got done with triton, and ended up going to Dominican university. 
  • 2016– This year was the one that was very difficult for me. Started this blog, reopened my YouTube channel, had my braces all over again, made a channel with my other half, traveled a little more, and what broke my heart was that I lost my abuela. She was the rock of our family, and I can still remember everything that went through my mind when I got the news. 
  • 2017– A few friends that I love died this year, it was a very hard stage because I was really negative, had depression that no one knew, but throughout everything I know God was just making me stronger for what was to come. I was embracing my ministry at church a little more than before, and I started to fall in love with the Lord all over again.
  • 2018– I went to a retreat that changed my life (shout out to my youth pastor), started getting more into the word of God, prayed for the Lord to remove fake friends (which this year he did!), my confidence sky rocketed, made new friends, got closer with my sibling, started writing content for my channel, wrote more on my blog, took “me time” very seriously, my significant other and I conquered so many things, and last but not least God put all the pieces together in time. 
  • 2019– Got engaged in February, traveled with my sister and mom, wedding preparations were on point, got a new job, went back to the gym, changed the color of my hair, crossed the stage, got married in November, redo my blog site, moved to a new home, detoxed from social media, bought the stuff that I always wanted, learned to save more, turned 29 (last year in my 20s!), reconnected with an old friend of mine from church, and by the end of the year God showed me his love like you have no clue. 

So the question is…What lies ahead of 2020? All I know is that something great is going to happen this year, and I am letting the Lord take control of everything. It is sad to hear on the news of what is going on throughout the world, but I know that if God is on my side my faith shall not be shaken. I have so much to put out on my social media, and I cannot wait till you guys see what I have in store. Love you all and I hope this year is the best year for all of us!

Hellllooo!!!!!! ha!

What is up ya’ll?? It is my birthday week, and I am back!! I have been gone for a little while because I work so much now, and my times shift a lot now. There are times where I work in the mornings, and others where I work nights making me wake up super late during the day. It is always unpredictable of how my day may look like, and there are so many things that that I want you all to catch up on!!! 

Many of you know that I will be getting married soon so basically the preparations are going as planned. There are still a few things that I need to make sure that I have ready for my big day, and I am also cutting down on food so much now. It hasn’t been an easy journey because where I work there is ALWAYS something to eat. There are many times that they have all of my favorite things that it is so hard to resist, and when I say “no” to some I feel like I die a little lol! 

Also as you can finally see…I got my braces off!!!!
65303942_450455375746530_534921834366238720_n

This journey of 6 years is finally over, and now I can smile confident like I never did before. The only downside right now is dealing with my retainer, but that is something that I am trying to get used to. I have to take them off before I eat, and put them back on after I eat. However, before putting back my retainer I need to wash my teeth all the time. The retainers help me cut back on food because I don’t want to eat something that may stain my teeth, and then it will take me forever to wash them. The longer I have my retainer off the faster my teeth can shift, but that is exactly what I do not want which is why my retainer helps me out so much. 

Another thing is that I am already working on my music so I can upload it. I know I have been saying this since forever, but trust me it’s worth the wait. I was never confident being in front of a camera because of my braces, and now that they are off I finally feel comfortable. If you have any songs that you like make sure you let me know so I can do a cover on it. This week is kinda bitter-sweet because this is my last year in my 20s, and let me tell you it has been a roller coaster! I had my ups and downs but I am grateful for it all. I feel like this last year will be the best one yet! I have so much to look forward to, and so much to count down.

Tomorrow I will be posting something that might be an eye opener for some, and others the shoe might even fit lol!!! A lot of people get sensitive now a days, but that is because they think it’s directly to them when it really is not. lol! So how are you guys doing?? I hope all of you are having an amazing month like I am because June is literally the best month ever!! 😉

Hello mi gente

Hi…how are ya?

(cue Jeffree Star)

It has been a long…long…LONG while that I haven’t uploaded nothing on my blog, but here I am! No, I did not disappear at all I was just trying to catch up on a few things in my life which are very exciting. First off, it is refreshing to return to the blogging world as well as creating new content. I didn’t want my blog to be something that will get ya’ll bored, but rather a blog that will get you excited once you see a notification from me. 

SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED

I am so excited to say that I work at Loyola hospital, which I mentioned that in one of my previous post, and also that my wedding planning is coming together. Since I started working, I had been trying to invest and save up on something that I have always dreamed of. For some it might not be the “big deal”, but keep in mind I am coming up from having “not what I dreamed of” to something that I am getting everything I ever wanted! This is all happening in less than 2 months!! 

Also, I finally got the camera I wanted, a brand new computer, and now I am in the process of getting a new phone. Is it not a big deal to some? well yes because they already have the stuff that I always wanted. However, to me is a big deal because I worked, and continue working so hard on my dream goals. To top it off, I work with the most amazing people in this universe. I am so blessed to work in an environment where I feel that I am loved, and with people that are willing to teach me more each day. 

Another thing that I am so excited about, is that I can finally do my Youtube channel, and post up my music!!!! I have a computer with an amazing software that makes my music sound as if I was in the studio. Since I love music so much, I learned how to play with the software in a matter of 2 hours. I also got a new gel kit which a co-worker of mine recommend it to me. My nails FINALLY look FLAWLESS, and I do not have to go to a nail salon anymore. If you want to know which one I use send me a message, and I will send you the picture.

 

WEDDING PLANNING

If you don’t know this yet….yes I am getting married…THIS YEAR! I am planning little by little with my Fiancé because we had been busy. However, in this whole process we have seen that it doesn’t take so much to do plan for a wedding. It actually takes such little time, but so many love to plan it 2 years before or even 1 year. The only thing is that I have’t contacted my bridesmaids yet because I am still looking for the perfect design that I want them to wear.

My colors? that will be a surprise! You will see pictures of it once the wedding day arrives, and trust me its a color that is very classy. I really love doing life with my significant other because it is finally time to get our life in one. We have been together for 5 years, and it has been a wild journey. We have overcome every single thing because we put God in the center of it all. I love how the process works with my husband to be because we literally turn everything into laughter.

If you haven’t seen yet, I started a wedding series, not so long ago, so I will link everything down below so you can follow along. I have a few topics coming up such as who to invite, how much will it be, how to have a wedding under a budget, and much more. So many questions that a lot of people ask me will finally be shared on here, and if you have any advice for me then please go ahead and share it! I am open to any advice and it would be awesome if I can feature YOU on my blog. 

THE PLAN FROM NOW ON

I used to be scared to voice my opinion on certain topics, but that won’t be the case anymore. So baby if the shoe fits…WEAR IT! I will be blogging more now because I finally have a set schedule to do everything that I wanted to do. With a new equipment, I will be able to accomplish some of my goals on this blog. If you don’t so yet, then go ahead and follow me on my social media because I will be posting a little bit more. I will try not to disappear this time.. I PROMISE! 

The day that I do have a small vacation from posting I will make sure to let you all know so you can stay updated. Let me know if you want me to talk about politics (oh man lol), beauty, motherhood (I can feature some cool moms on here), or whatever you have in mind. I am literally an open book, and trust me I do not hide my feelings at all. With that being said the following are the blogging wedding series that I started doing: 

Wedding party favors

It’s all about the music

Engaged, but what happens now?I’m ENGAGED!!!

I’m ENGAGED!!!

I will be updating so many things on here so you better keep an eye out! Make sure you are subscribed to my channel because the content that I will be posting up will have you shook! I hope you are all enjoying this month because summer is just around the corner!!

Stay tuned every Thursday and everyday because I will be posting up at 6 pm and 7 pm central! Monday through Friday and probably on the weekend stay tuned! 

 

Leona Lewis- Bleeding Love

Closed off from love, I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough, but it was all in vain
Time starts to pass, before you know it, you’re frozen
But something happened, for the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground, found something true
And everyone’s looking round, thinking I’m going crazy
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
Trying hard not to hear, but they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears, try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal, is to keep me from falling
But nothings greater, than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness, I see your face
Yet everyone around me, thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe
But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open
And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars, for everyone to see
I don’t care what they say, I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away, but they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein, that I keep on closing
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
Oh, you cut me open and I
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

Train On a Track- Kelly Roland

Starting today I will be doing Throwback Thursday: ALL ABOUT MUSIC! So I will start with something like this:

Music of today= TRASH!

I want to take the road back to memory lane, and remember of the good music we had back then. That type of music where you can just roll your car window down, feeling the breeze, in your room during any 4 seasons, where every word meant something, when you can actually relate, that type of music that will put you in a certain mood, the one that will make you want to clean, or slow/speed up on that accelerator of the car. Better yet, that type of music when CDs were the only way we could listen with those A-tracks, cassettes, or even put on the radio and every time that EXACT song that we liked came on just in time. You remember those days? Shoot, I remember when I had to download my songs with limewire, and I would get a virus on my computer lol!

One thing I would remember about every old song is the feeling that I would get when I would listen to it. Till this day if I hear an old song I can still remember even the smell of the place that I would be in, and especially that feeling that creeps up slowly within you. That feeling that would just make you take a deep breath, have chills, make you cry, or even laugh. I catch myself tearing up, not because I miss those days, but because I am amazed at how far I have come. Also, because each song reminds me of something when I thought I would never make it, but HEYYY look at me now! lol! THOSE SONGS! So with all of this being said, let me take you back to one of my favorite songs back in the day by Kelly Rowland.

Down below the video, I will post up the lyrics for you to follow along, and also this will be my new thing every Thursday. Today was just an introduction so let’s start! Sit back, relax, and just listen. If you used to love this song, forgot about it, and you are barely remembering this melody…..you’re welcome. I hope that this #TBT songs help you see that no matter what song made you feel a certain way…you came through at the end. For all of you young folks THIS…IS…MUSIC.

Kelly Rowland- Train On A Track

I wonder
If he knows I been watching him
And I wonder
If he knows I can feel him
and I wonder
In my dreams when I’m sleeping, and I’m keeping him close to me
I’m thinking
He’s the thunder, I’m the lightning
And I’m thinking
Maybe we can come together
And I’m thinking
We can bring the rain with a lovely breeze with such harmony
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I’m glowing
And overflow of happy laughter
I’m growing
Closer to you more than ever
I’m blowing
Daffodils and kisses, baby breaths, and roses gently
Touching noses
I’m sailing
Without a destination
I’m sailing
Explore uncharted places
I’m exhaling
No more lonely seasons, I’m underwater breathing
Drowning in the sea of love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
I heard a song bird, a seed came through the earth
Strangers holding hands, a crowd cheering in the stands
I’ve already seen all the evidence
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
Saw dark clouds blow, chased by rainbows
Saw two roses bloom just like me and you
Caught up in the magic I can’t pretend
It’s obvious love’s in the air again
There’s no way to stop it
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
There’s no way to stop it, no way
Boy you and I
Are LUV in love you see
That you and I, are LUV in love
Like a train on a track like spokes inside a wheel
Involuntary motion like rolling downhill
And there’s no way to stop it
It’s a natural thing like sunrise and dusk
Snowflakes, waterfalls same thing like us
And there’s no way to stop it
Once you fall in love
Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.

It’s all about the music

Doing a wedding is a process….a LONG process! From getting the venue, the cake, and food there is so much to do! However, the real complicated part is literally the music, and I will explain why so keep reading. 

Image result for wedding music

So many people spend a TON of money to get a good band, or pay someone that is somewhat “famous” to perform for them. However, with tons of money already wasted why spend it on a live performance? We all have different types of music that we enjoy, but what we like can set the tone for the whole day. What I mean is, you can have the wedding in the most elegant place, but if the music isn’t right you better pray people would still like it.

If you are doing your wedding in a place where it is very simple, it doesn’t have a lot of “bling/glam”, but the music is on point then trust me that everyone will remember your wedding. My fiance and I think ahead of the game and by that we mean that we already know what we want. Not to mention, we are both very good in not spending so much cash for just one day because to be honest….. it is pointless.

Image result for wedding music

Knowing that I have to spend money on music, makes me super anxious, yet being a singer I already know what to do. The week I got engaged, I knew that the first thing that was going to take time was to find the music I wanted to be played. So guess what I did? I took two whole hours in creating a playlist on Spotify with the music Carlos and I love! Basically I am already ahead of the game with that because now I can rest knowing I got my music!

I have a ton of songs that will be played via spotify, and I already have an idea of what I want to be played in the ceremony too. For the ceremony, I have a few people that will play and sing for me so that is all fixed. Here is my advice for you: Pick the songs that you and your significant other like! Don’t go based on people’s opinions because that will take you no where, and be smart when picking out a band if you prefer to go that route.

So now for the big question: If you are already married, what advice can you give me? I would really like to know, in terms on how to plan an event like this. I have my own ideas which I will be sharing along the way, and I hope this helps out tons of girls out there prepare for their unforgettable day. Also, if there are girls that are still single, yet are picturing their wedding, I hope that once they read what I have to say they can have an idea of what they want.

If you haven’t done so already you can click on the links that I will provide for you so you can see how I got engaged, and also be updated with the “Engaged, now what?” series that I am doing. Remember I post everyday at 6 pm and 7 pm central so be subscribed to my blog to stay up to date!

Jonas Brothers

My childhood days are screaming right now……literally with every single right…..because….ugh…I am going to stop and just watch this…………….

 

They are BACK!!! Well to be honest they are brothers so this band never really “broke up”, but trust me all the other boy bands have LEFT THE CHAT! I am sooo exctied and hyped about this! I have been having this song on repeat, and what I loved most is that all of them are in this video with their significant other!!!!! I just can’t with this amazing video! If you want the lyrics they are the following:: 

“Sucker”

We go together
Better than birds of a feather, you and me
We change the weather, yeah
I’m feeling heat in December when you ’round me

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you

Yeah
Don’t complicate it, yeah
‘Cause I know you and you know everything about me
I can’t remember
All of the nights I don’t remember when you’re ’round me

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you

Yeah
(I’m a sucker for you)

I’ve been dancin’ on top of cars
And stumblin’ out of bars
I follow you through the dark
Can’t get enough
You’re the medicine and the pain
The tattoo inside my brain
And baby, you know it’s obvious

I’m a sucker for you
Say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly
I’m a sucker for you, ooh yeah
Any road you take you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things
No one knows about you (About you)
About you (About you)
And you’re making the typical me
Break my typical rules
It’s true, I’m a sucker for you
I’m a sucker for you

That is all for today, and let me know what you think! Are you excited for them to release this new song? I hear a concert coming and it is going to be LIT! *CueCampRock3* ha! 

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace. signature

Tori Kelly is the reason as to why I want to try to put my music out there! So much class, REAL TALENT, and most of all her love for God is just amazing to see! I loved seeing her glow when she made her speeches when accepting each award. I cried ya’ll!!! I didn’t have the pleasure in sitting down, and actually seeing the show but I went online to see the clips where she won the award. She has no idea but she is my best friend in my mind lol! This reminds me of a quote from one of her songs and literally it is SPOT ON! 

“Thinking maybe they’ll let me sing songs about real things
And baby who knows maybe I can sell out shows without taking off my clothes
God made me sexy I don’t care if only I know.”- Tori Kelly (Unbreakable Smile)

and THAT IS WHAT SHE DID! BOOM! Who was your favorite artist that won during that night? Go ahead and share it with me because I would love to know! I hope you guys are having an amazing day. 

Love ya’ll. God bless. Peace.
