School Daze...

Here is my school Cypress College. It's a nice campus. I chose to come here because of there Dental Hygiene program. This school has a 90% graduation rate once you are accepted. My other choice was Cerritos College but I like this campus better. Too bad the program is not offered at LBCC or CSULB. It would be a lot closer to me. That is where my math class is...I think that is where most of my classes will take place. Since they are either math or science! 

I love this little short cut trail! This school is very futuristic looking. It reminds me of the movie "Total Recall" with Arnold Schwartenegger. LOL!

It has a nice area in the middle of the school. I see a lot of students out here studying or eating their lunches or just socializing with friends.

I come here to take advantage of the Free Math Tutoring. So far so good. Math is my worst nightmare. As much as I try to avoid keeps coming back to haunt me!!

I have to scan my ID card. Then I just work on my assignment and if I get stuck there are 3 or 4 tutors there to help. The staff is extremely helpful thank goodness. I believe they really want their students to succeed.  It's a huge relief to have this service. Frankly I can't really afford a private tutor. Thanks Cypress College!

A Day at Work

I've been meaning to blog about work for the longest time ever. Well finally I have! This is me at the Main office on Cherry/Anaheim in the Telephone Info Center getting customers from point A to point B on the buses.

This is the Downtown Long Beach Information Center. There are 3 windows for transit information and 1 for visitor information. It's a brand new state of the art building.

I caught a picture of Phillip the vistor information clerk. He's standing outside and ready to approach visitors of our beautiful city.

There's Mickey helping a customer with transit info.

 Heres the transit guide racks!
We also have a "touch" kiosk that will display information and it has a "plan your trip" button as well.

The old Security Bank that houses offices and The Madison Restaurant below. I love this historical building!

Named after our old Cheif Operating Officer who recently retired.

My view down Pine Street. I can see LOpera, Alegria, and George's restaurants.  And lots of fashionable people walk by.

I just love these two paintings that they put in our building depecting Zeus and Athena "waterpolo themed at the Belmont Pool".

The Metro Blue Line going by.

The new Bicycle Station. You can park your bike for free for the day and rent a bike too.

Behind the bike station is this really cute park.
This little Ampetheatre were sometimes bands play at in the park.

There is water streaming down the ampetheatre. Pretty neat!
This iron fence has these cute little birds on it. Loves it...
This looks like airplane windows. Interesting...
Cute little fish squirting out water at some of the Lofts there.
I love these random mosaics they put in all around the bus terminals.
Sea creatures or eels?
Also, there are these random shells they put in some places! I love anything from the Sea.
The bus terminals display LIVE departure times. Very state of the art. I hope you enjoyed a day at work with me!!

AquaLink Boat adventure

One thing I wanted to do before summer ended was go on a boat ride. So Iris, Toni and I did just that and took a ride around the Long Beach Harbor on the Aqualink. It was a warm evening but the girls had their jackets and I brought my blanket just in case it got too cold.

Leaving Alamitos Bay Landing. Bye!

Hey girls! You all ready?!

It was perfect weather so far and we were going to see the sunset.

A great view! Nothing but ocean as far as the eyes could see...

Get your camera ready!

 Trying to take a pic of us both but missed by a hair or two. LOL!
Belmont Pier. A new stop.

Leaving the pier. I love how the sun is about to set.

There were many pelicans diving into the water.

Ah such a beautiful sight...

The Queen...Mary.

We were having a blast!

The lighthouse.

One last shot before the sun goes down. This was a great time!

Family Reunion(Mexico)

About a week ago my mom and I went to visit my grandmother and all of the family.
This is not even everyone! That is my grandmother sitting next to my mom. My mom is the oldest of her siblings, she has 10.
This is my Aunt Karla (who by the way is 1 year younger than me), my cousin Fernanda, and me!
It was cool hanging out with them after so many years. Last time I was there was in 2006. I'm drinking a beer with my familia! LOL!
I am the oldest cousin and this is the youngest, his name is Santiago.
These two are my cousins. Brianna and Monserat. I used to take care of Brianna as a baby. Now she's all grown up!
I had a blast over there!
