Do you know who you are? What was your original intent.. Are you fulfilling it? Life is a beauty. Catch the glimpse of happiness that surrounds you, hold onto it and prevent the darkness from bringing you down. #naturalhigh#yoga#dc#ucdc 😘

Last night I had the privilege to see my past and current residents sharing the same space. I was surprised with a going away party. I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t. These past two years have been so very unexpected. I would have never thought to be the one to mentor and become best of friends with so many individuals! The beginning of each year I was being set for failure. Last year I was told that my hall would be terrible because I had a bunch of athletes, this year I was told that I wasn’t going to have as close of relationships. But I sure have defeated the odds. I live my life using self-fulfilling prophency. If you think someone will be bad, they will be bad. But I chose and continue to think and see the good of each. I have had the fortunate experience to see the beautiful personalities of each one of you and …. Now I’m crying. Leaving riverside is going to be so tough.  I will be leaving the home that has overwhelming warmed my heart so many times. I absolutely love you all… And all equally! I have learned so much from each one of you and I hope that I have made a positive impact in return. See you when I see you. Love you all! xoxo, big D/ dmar(t)/ or daniela :) #ucr#ai#d3w#e3e#ra#friends#college#uc#undergraduates#olympians#travelers#family thank you Hana and Leslye for making this happen!

my pops left mexico at age 16 to make progress in his life. He chose not to stay in the town he was raised in and decided to risk what he had only to make a better future for himself. Here i am today, in my final year of my undergraduate studies, continuing to make the progress that my father initiated some 40+years ago. I don’t think i have ever appreciate my father this much in my life up until now. He is the reason why my actions have such profound intentions. I can not express how much i love and admire him. I just wish i can carry more in-depth conversations with him…i guess i have more of a motive to polish up on my spanish.Β 

Travel is rebellion in its purest form. We follow our hearts. We free ourselves of labels. We love the unfamiliar. We trust strangers. We search for better questions, not answers. And sometimes, we choose never to come back. #dcmetro

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see. Cold Thursday in Staten Island. #thoreau
