What a hectic last two weeks it has been! 🌪 Hurricane Irma has come and gone, and power and Internet has finally been restored for me here in Orlando. Speaking of Internet 🌐.. that's where a lot of people go to look for property! 🏡
I was super cooped up last week so I wrote a new blog 💻 touching on why seeing homes in person is 100% better and more effective than browsing them online. 💯 Check it out! Link in bio. 👆
Lauren was the name of my first ever girlfriend. I do use the term loosely since we were only ten years old so our “romance” consisted mainly of a few innocent kisses and hand holding at the movies. I met her during a mild Connecticut spring. Once summer came, I would eagerly wait all week at school to go and see her on Friday night and spend the weekend at her place. Her mom had this lovely traditional house with picturesque rolling hills in the back yard and tall trees that gave us ample shade. Her mom also put up a hammock in the yard and made us fresh lemonade. I spent so many summer days in that hammock with Lauren by my side. I’d hear about her school and which teachers did what and which friends said what and as the summer sun lit up the hammock and the leaves above us, I’d close my eyes and listen to her stories. The wind would throw her long, brunette hair at my face and she’d laugh. Her little brother would patiently wait nearby so I could go play with him instead of being glued to his older sister. What made me like Lauren so much, besides her dark hair and pale face with freckles all about, was how she looked at me. She had this subtle gaze that disguised itself as some nonchalant look when it was anything but that. Her big eyes had so much to tell me. These moments happened 26 years ago and I still feel them as if they’re the sounds of the palm trees outside. The greatest waste of life is not living in this very moment. There really is no past and no future. They’re not guaranteed. The past is so easily forgotten, misplaced somewhere in the mind between studying for a test and a nagging broken heart. The future has too many variables depended on everything from pure randomness to some unexpected tragedy or change of heart. Right now, though, is the crowning achievement of your life. If you’re in a relationship, now is when you get to hold hands, to say thank you, to kiss like never before, to go on a road trip, to write her a poem she never expected to see from you; this now that you have is really the only life you’ll ever have. What you do with this now is how you’ll always be remembered so enjoy it, be grateful for it and make it great.

Mama N. is telling us something, and #globalwarming is real.
It's a fact that when we subtract and deploy nutrients and fluids from our body, or mistreat it in anyway, it'll be affected, Earth as a living organism reacts in the same way, specially when we do not renew what we take from it (if we cannot renew it we should not take it, period.). Global warming... Global Exhaustion is Real! All these signs/symptoms that earth is giving to us must be listened, sooner or later we all be directly affected by a storm, earthquake, floods, plagues, etc. now you see that entire countries can disappear in a blink of an eye, what are we waiting for? Please go to your local/closest environmental organizations/activists and ask what you can do to help. ((( <3 ))) 🙏 - words by Diego Om
