Its comforting to know that through the best and the worst I have five lovely lady's to stand by my side, and make everything better.







Where do i begin..... he had me at hello.

We dated all through the summer, and just like all good things; it ended.
He left to Texas to live with his brother, and play music. Thats right he is a musician! :0 Just one more reason to like him.
He was gone for a month.... it really felt like six months. But after a lot of thought, prayers, and tears he came back four months earlier than expected.

Now that he is back we spent every second that we probably can together, its not perfect. Like any relationship with imperfect people, but we make the best of it. Still, i have no idea where this is going; where its taking me, where this is going, but i am holding on tight. In the end only time can tell.

About two weeks ago i did a pageant, the Miss Legacy pageant. This is was the second pageant that i have been involved in. And this time, just like the last time, I didn't place. I did the best i could in every event, and i honestly felt like i could not have done better; which, i guess, is a good thing because i have no regrets.... but it still left me wondering, why didn't i get it?

Some times the best we can do is just smile and give our selves a pad in the back for all of our hard work, some things are simply just out of our control. So why not enjoy the ride? Plus, i got to parade around a stage with five inch heals and a zebra print swim suite; how many people can honestly say that they have done that and enjoyed every second of it.

Before I went to Lake Powell I had a feeling I was going to meet someone very special, I know that sounds crazy, but its true. I think, or like to think, that intuition is one of my strengths. It has been since i was little.

I always think of this quote when I meet knew people:
"Some people walk into our lives and quickly go.
Some stay for a while and leave foot prints on our hearts,
and we are never the same."

It is too soon to tell what kind of person Josh will be....
Will he quickly go?
Will he stay?
Will he change my life in a way that I will never be the same?
I don't know...and usually that would scare me, usually I would push him away, but this time I am just going to let the pieces fall where they may.

Going and going
Not really knowing


Never seeing
Only speaking


Without feeling
Just holding


Keeping and leaving
Never needing

My heart is racing
But my mind is slow
I wonder how long it will be before i know

Where to look
And how to find
Maybe ill take a walk tonight

I see
I feel
I hear
I touch

Isn't that enough?

Not thinking about tomorrow

Most college students go to school Fall and Spring, and kick back in the summer. Well, I am not like most students. I am going to summer school full time, dancing, and working. Which is a great thing because I stay busy and accomplish a lot, but sometimes I get so caught up in what I am doing that I forget to look at the beauty that surrounds me...

I forget all the little things are the big things

When times get hard, get away from the lights and look up.

"Your soul and mind is what you are moving in actuality and your body just fallows. Movement is just movement if you are not moving with your soul and stretching your mind."- Sara Cynthia Johnson

I think that sometimes as dancers we tend to get caught up in what our body is doing, and forget that the purpose of our movement is to enrich our souls and enlighten understanding.


My father is visiting from Germany; his name is Fabio (No, that’s not a joke that really is his name.) Our family struggled for many reasons; I won't go into details, which lead to my parents’ divorce. After the divorce I rarely saw my dad, which I always thought of as a good thing. I understood that the separation on my parents was the best for the family. A couple of months ago, around January, it hit me. I missed my dad, and our broken relationship was hurting me in ways that I wasn't even aware of. He came to the U.S to visit in February, and we talked. We really communicated, for the first time in years, this talk was the beginning of the restoration of a bond that had long been broken. I finally felt like I had a father who loved me, and accepted me for who I am. All it took was communication. Communication is essential for any type of relationship, and I am so glad to have finally found that with my dad. He is currently visiting again, like I mentioned earlier, and things are better. He lives thousands of miles away, but we email back and forth and talk when we can. Morale of the story: Don't go through life burning bridges, and carrying the heavy baggage of broken relationships. There is always hope; relationship can be restored with communication and effort. Just try.

Blogging world, here I come!

Hello fellow readers!!
My name is Sandra Viviana Vega, and this is my very first blog!
I am overwhelmed with excitement. I have always wanted to have a blog, but have failed to do so in the past because I was scared. Mostly fearing that I didn't have anything worth writing about, but life has been good to me and I learn so much every day. So I thought to myself....why not share the wealth?
