A LITTLE ABOUT ME.




Herro.

So i decided to do a blog where I was writing more than pictures. Share a little about me as a person and not just the crazy ass on youtube. The following information was requests from people that commented on my facebook post. I love feedback when I have questions just as you all do.

here we go..

.A little about myself.
28 years old.
Mother of 7 year old twins.
Mexican/Filipino
Residing in Las Vegas for 17 years.
Hip Hop lover.
Sneakerhead.
I love food.
I read magazines from back to front.
I'm messy.
My height is 5'7" barefoot.
Always on filipino time.
I don't have very many close friends.


.top 5 songs.
(not in order)
Passin' me by -Pharcyde
Love of my life -Erykah Badu
Just Friends -Musiq Soulchild
Ready to Wear -Felix da Housecat
Juicy -Biggie

.How did I get here?.
I ask myself the same shit. I had a pretty big struggle my whole adult life until the last 3 years of my life. When I was 20 I got pregnant. Living check to check. Although now I still spend my money on things that the girls and I want. We only live once right? I save, but don't know why people pile it up so much for a rainy day. What, the rainy day when you die and you saved all that money for the day you die? My opinion of course. Anywho, I worked at MAC and left that job to move back to Vegas. I worked as an artist in a studio doing freelance work. I had the most amazing time. Kids were always with me and we were so tight. Push came to shove and I needed health insurance for my little girl. She has asthma. Paying outta pocket wasn't working and I was living with mom. Started Youtube somewhere in there and finally got a full time job cocktailing. Got a boyfriend and then stopped Youtube. I was too busy... 2 years later. I'm on my own. Very independent. Not much help from kids dad. I'm single. Starting to travel. Kids are honor roll every semester and I'm pleased to get back into Youtube and blogging full time.


.childhood.
I grew up in Santa Fe Springs, Ca. WHUUUUZZZUP!? Reppin 562. I left there when I was 9 and moved to Vegas. I was pretty depressed about it. My parents split when i was 9. divorced. dated. married. separated. divorced. WTF!? So you can only imagine what that was like. Other than that, my younger brother and I were pretty close til about high school.. When I was little I always knew I wanted to be a mom. I just knew it.. (as a matter of fact, I'm gonna call my kids. They are on vacay in Cali.. please hold...)
.........
Ok I'm back. Yea so what was I saying? (reading what my last sentence was...)So being a young mom. Yea, I always knew I wanted my own family. Be the boss and call the shots. I was given the best gift. 2 little girls. My life couldn't be better. (maybe a little boy?)

.Bucketlist.
(just a few)
Go to Spain.
Ibiza.
Fiji.
London.
Phillipines.
Barbados.
See Prince in concert.
Skydive. (maybe)
Scuba dive.
be known for something great.
Learn another language.
paint a mural.
buy a house.
own a sports car. (that I buy)
(these are all things that are not as personal as the ones not mentioned)

Thank you to...
Carmen L.
Ashley A.
Stephanie O.
Simone F.
Karen M.
Maria S.
Harriet M.
Kara B.

This was pretty fun. We will have to do it again sometime.

PEACE LOVE AND LIPGLOSS

  5. Thanks so much for the post. It is a great way to get more personal with everyone. I think people feel like they already "know" the people they read about/watch but this is honest truth. It's nice to know that people can relate. Thanks for the mention, btw.

  16. I really enjoyed your post, and I love that your back in the game. I began watching your videos by noticing your Chola Tag Game and when you stopped making videos, which caused me to watch your old videos 100X til this day. I love reading magazines and I love discovering new ones and I was wondering if you could drop some recommendations?

  17. Well Marissa, you can for sure scratch one of the lines on the bucketlist and that is be known for something great. You are a great role model for a lot, a great and beautiful person (inside and out), and a great artis full of passion for the world. Love all ur work, blogs, and videos. Thank you for not giving them up =)

  22. How did you get through life with twins?! you seem like you have such a fabulous life.. I am currently a 20 year old with a 1 year old living on my own and I feel like I can't do this. Im losing motivation. Reading this gave me a little motivation like hey she is raising twin girls and doing a fantastic job... I should be able to raise my daughter.

  28. I'm ready this in 2013 and I must say, I'm inspired by how far you've come. You are living proof that for every dark night, there's a brighter day, and you bring positivity and hope to your friends and followers through setting that very example :) there you go: "be known for something great," right? Haha it's amazing to see that you've already scratched a few things off that bucket list (traveling and getting the home with your momma) and it's only been what? A year and a half?! And as far as those things on your more personal bucket list... well I can only imagine how much you've accomplished in those terms. Good for you. I mean that sincerely :)
    Hope you get the chance to read this one day, and know the difference you make <3
