Every time I start writing, my biggest hidden feelings jump in (without being called) and my fingers start typing by themselves, and sometimes I can’t find good things to talk about. Unfortunately today is one of those days, but I made a promise to myself a long time ago that I wouldn’t type or write bad feelings or what is going wrong with my life. Instead I will only record good moments and happy days. This is what I’ll try to do today.

The best part of being in Brazil is meeting my friends. On Friday, me and 3 other girl friends went to a japanese restaurant (they had vegetarian menu) and it was the best meal I had since I got back, not because of the food (the place was VERY full and the service wasn’t great at all) but the company was worth it. Spending time with people you know since 5th grade is so relaxing, especially because you know that almost no one knows you that good, and nothing you say will be taken in the wrong way; sometimes you don’t even have to say anything. I can’t wait for next weekend!

Also, as always, I have been cooking a lot, and these past days I had the opportunity to try some whole-wheat baked eggplant and zucchini pastry, homemade soy strawberry/banana/orange juice ice-cream and stuffed sweet potato (eggplant&zucchini filling). Everything was very very VERY good! Being vegan is so great 😀 BTW today has been two months since I’ve became a veg. So nice! Especially because on Saturday I went with my dad to a brazilian “farmer’s market” and indulge myself with a lot of veggies and fruits. I’m packed for the week. My list included: Eggplants, zucchinis, carrots, sweet potatoes, 3 kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, regular potatoes, strawberries, bananas, pineapple and maracujá. It was very fun, and we spend less than $15 (R$26)!!! Soooo cheap!

Well, I think what I’m trying to say is no matter how bad things are, you can always find the good side of life and have fun. Coming back to Brazil is being hard and I wanna go back to California as soon as possible but we can’t have everything at once and life is about suffering, so lets just try to make our best of it and forget about the bad moments. “Everything is gonna be alright”. I will accomplish my dreams, my parents will stop judging me and I will find a guy that I love and loves me back. Someday…

Best Wishes,




In less than 4 days I will step in São Paulo once again, and I must say: I’m VERY excited! Excited to compare, to explore, to have fun, to kiss my family, to hug my friends, to hold Daniel in my arms and to take Marzipan for a long walk. I want to walk around by myself, go to Augusta St. in the middle of the afternoon for no reason, meditated in the middle of São Paulo’s hectic traffic, party my ASS off and enjoy this summer (winter in Brazil) like I never did before. Although this semester was a dream come true in every single way, I’m definitely prepared to take a break and to enjoy the most of it. With responsibility 😉 of course. I want to go to Cachaçarias, to Bubu Lounge, to Sub Astor, to Vila Madalena, to have lunch with my parents on Saturdays, to spends nights watching TV at Andréia’s house, to able to buy a drink without showing my ID, to drink a glass of wine while having dinner, to go to Pão de Açúcar, to be brazilian in Brazil and to WATCH THE WORLD CUP!!! Really, I’m very excited for that 😀 Going to bars to watch the game, or staying at home bitting my nails off and cursing the judge (and the players), or hearing people shouting out the window after a goal, or shouting out the window after a goal. BRASIL, AQUI VOU EU!

This pasts months were so perfect that the thing I want the most is to be delighted in my own country, sharing my experiences and telling people about the amazing characters I met in California, and how INCREDIBLE  is Hollywood 😀 I learned so much from everyone and it will be impossible to forget about those faces. Thank you, Santa Barbara! This firsts months were flawless. Thankfully is just the beginning. Anyways, I’m coming back so there is no need to write this “goodbye” post. In August 2nd everything is starting once again. Hostel, apartment hunting, paying for the bus… I can’t wait!

Best Wishes.

Tea party…

When I was still living in Brazil, I always asked my mom to buy some tea. She would, and I would drink once. Tops! But since I got here, I decided to make tea a part of my life, and now I drink it everyday, sometimes even twice a day. I love the warm feeling in my belly and how light I feel afterwords. My favorite (until today) was Herbal Tea, no sugar, no honey… just tea! However, walking through State St. today, I decided to finally buy my teapot (I didn’t have any, what a shame!) and choose Teavana to do so. Although is a expensive store, I found my pick (this), and obviously I had to take some tea also 😀 That was REALLY expensive, and let me totally broke, but it was worth it! They let you choose what kinds of flavors you want to blend and for me the perfect choice was the Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate and the Weight to Go! Pu-erh. When I got home, the first thing I did was to start boiling the water, and to prepare! The blend is AMAZING! The raspberry is so tasteful, the lime gives a citrus taste and along with mint this tea is perfection. Forget about Herbal tea, Raspberry Riot Lemon Mat-Weight to Go! Pu-erh t is one hundred times better!

My afternoon was delightful and the best way to finish my weekend.

(my new teapot and the actual tea)

BTW: 3 weeks until the end of school. Yey!!

Oh, thanks for everyone that took time to read my last post and supports my decision!! Even made me want to post more 🙂

Home Sweet Home…

219 W YANONALI ST, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

My new address 😀

Now I just need $915.000, maybe I should start a fun raiser. Would you help me? I promise I will invite you in, WHENEVER!!!

When I grow up…

“When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it”


My dreams are big, I know! But what’s the point of living if you won’t make your life worth it? I want more for me, I want all for me! All the passion, all the excitement, all the places… Everything life can give I want! I came this far and NOTHING will stop me now. Why don’t you join me, huh? It’s so much fun!

“Imagine first audition after college, I get the lead!” THING BIGGER! Always.

Best Wishes!

Spring Break…

It’s over! After a week of traveling, drinking, waking up at noon and having SO much fun, the brake is over and it’s time to go back to school. Although I love SBCC, it’s hard not to wish for an extra week of relaxation.

(Mission Bay – San Diego)

San Diego was really fun and the 4 days we spend there practically made my whole brake. I would like to thank the amazing people who made me laugh – Lipe, Aline, Tatiana, Linnea, Otavio, Felipe and Sergey – and shared with me the bests Norbas ever 😀 Oh, FYI room 219 is THE best! Sorry, yet I can’t say why… chumash!

(Hollywood Bl.)

In our way back to Santa Barbara, we stopped a few hours in LA to hang out, and FINALLY I  found the most shiny star! I love Britney Spears since 1999 – I was only 9 years old – and taking  this picture was definitely a dream come true for me.

I WANT TO MOVE TO LA! Two years to go 🙂

After that we walked around West Hollywood, had lunch in an amazing organic restaurant  (O!Burger), and had the best lime pie I ever had in America. I really wish I could remember the  name of the place, but the only thing I know is that they are GREAT and that it’s close to  Subway (8000 Santa Monica Bl.). You really should look around in your next trip to  Hollywood!

We also walked around Venice Beach but everything was closed (8pm) and it was freezing cold,  so we left home, to get some sleep – I was completely exhausted after driving 6 hours and  walking for 3h in Hollywood. Nevertheless I had a blast!

The rest of the days were expended in Walmart – the ultimate castle for cheap shopping – Camarillo Outlet, Sharkeez and chilling at my apartment. Every second was awesome! And after I took my friend to the airport – he went back to Brazil – I had a chance to do some homework, and just relax at home doing absolutely nothing! I mean, not NOTHING, I did watch “17 again”, the lasts episodes from “90210” and “Parenthood” 😀

But today everything starts again! College, homework, MONOLOGUES, SCENES… Ok, ok is not bad! Actually is pretty great!

Best Wishes!

(1 month and a half to go, and after that is SUMMER TIME!!!)

Too much…

Yes! Sometimes after few hours of sleep, road trips around the LA area (downtown and Hollywood) and 5 shots of tequila, your body can’t take it anymore, so it falls down. That happened to me over this weekend. I had so much fun that I couldn’t take it anymore! Yesterday I had a fever, slept the whole day and drank loads of tea. I do feel kinda better, and even got the chance to do some Astronomy homework (Did you know that Copernicus died in the same day that his first book was published?) and tonight I have to practice for my “Good Will Hunting” scene. Hopefully tomorrow I will be 100%!

Even though I was feeling horrible yesterday, I can’t forget about the amazing weekend I had. One of my best friends from Brazil got here to visit me, and the things are more than perfect. Yet, I don’t feel like going back to Brazil at ALL. Especially when I have the opportunity to see a place like these:

And… did I told you I’m going to move to Beverly Hills?? 🙂
