NYC Metrocard 2

Its been a month already!! Time for a new monthly Metrocard, which means I'm $89 poorer. Curse you MTA for making my travel so expensive!!

This time I drew another Minion because they're just too cute! :) I drew the tall guy, anyone know his name? It was so hard to catch their names in the movie.
I drew the Minion really dark on my Metrocard and then I placed the receipt over it to stamp it on. I'm just lazy to re-draw it again.

I can't wait until the Despicable Me DVD comes out so I can watch it over and over again with my boyfriend. We absolutely LOVE the movie!!

Any suggestions as to what I should draw for next month's card?

Tornado in Queens

On Thursday evening September 16, 2010 a tornado ripped through New York City. This was my first time experiencing a tornado and we didn't even know it! I remember looking outside my front door and there was no visibility at all. All I saw was rain swirling around and I remember seeing the tree outside my door still holding up. I was glad the tree survived the storm! I just want to give it a great big hug :)
Queens College was hit really hard with 90mph winds. I haven't gone back to see how the school looks now but I hope its fixed up fast. The damage will take a month to fix but we're a strong community and we'll hang in there.
My friends shared some photos with me from around the neighborhood. The areas around me were hit really hard. Photo's courtesy of Kimberly Molina! Thanksss!

Money Saving Tips + Free Ziploc starter kit

As a college student we all try to save as much money as we can. I'm a commuter to college and school food just doesn't compare to home cooked meals. I like to bring my lunches and snacks using plastic containers or Ziploc sandwich bags.

I bring rice with some meat and vegetables occasionally for lunch. As for snacks sometimes I bring cut up fruits or whole fruits. There's always a bottle of water in my bag so I don't have to worry about buying drinks at school and plus NYC tap water is one of the best in the world! All in all I'd say I'm way healthier during school time than vacations and now you can be too!

Right@Home is offering free
Ziploc starter kits for the first 10,000 users that respond. Hurry and get yours now!!

Tutor Jitters

I remember when I used to be tutored I would rely on them to do the work for me all the time. I was the lazy type and I know I don't want to be that kind of a tutor. Relying on her to do my homework for me was not helpful at all, I didn't learn a thing. It made me work twice as hard when I got older in order to catch up with everyone because of me slacking off and making my tutor do all the work.

Tomorrow I start tutoring kids and helping them with homework. I'm both excited and worried that I might not remember the things they are learning. I'm not sure as to the grade levels of the kids I'll be working with but I'm hoping I can help a whole lot! I want to make a good impression since it's my first time! I know I want to fill the kids with tons of positive reinforcement and make an impact on those kids. So wish me luck guys!

Any tips as to what makes a good tutor? Have you tutored before?
Don't forget to leave those awesome advices on the comments below!

Despicable Me Review & Paper Craft!

I saw Despicable me finally and I loved it! Like everyone else, I would have loved it even more if the movie was a bit longer. Throughout the movie I looked for the scenes that included the Minions. Gru was an awesome character They're so irresistibly cute! I wish they were real life!! All I can say is the movie was great, awesome characters and you laugh your way through the whole movie.

I made another Paper Craft of a Minion. It took 2days but it was so much fun! I made this as a birthday gift for my best friend! Hope you guys enjoy it too!
