Buen Dia! Buenas Tardes! Buenas Noches! Whatever time you read this I hope its tanto bien!!! Once again I want to thank everyone for their encouragement whether its virtually, physically, metaphysically...whatever I'll take encouragement anywhere I can get it. So today I got to eat lunch with Cindy and got dinner with Jared, two people who I admire greatly for very different reasons.
So I know a lot of yall have probably seen the movie The Butterfly Effect that came out a few years ago with Ashton Kutcher, but if you haven't one of the basic ideas is that if you change something in the world, even something as small as killing a butterfly, it can have a ripple effect that could change major things in the world. I started thinking again today about a few small changes in events that have brought me to where I am today. You know if you go back a few years for me to when I was a Senior in High School I was trying to go to College to play football. So I was sending out film going to camps and going through the whole recruiting process and eventually it started looking like I was going to go to the University of North Texas, however the entire coaching staff got fired, so I ended up going to watch an ACU football game and coming to ACU to play football here. I then ended up changing my major from Biology to International Relations, then I went to Costa Rica, then I quit football and signed up to go to Uruguay. In Uruguay I met some of the most incredible people ever, I then had the opportunity to go to Brazil, there I met some more of the people who have been affecting and continue to change my life. Sometimes when I think about what could have happened if one of North Texas' players would have went off and they would have won a few more games... or millions of other tiny things I would be living in Denton and probably still planning on being an optometrist... Now I love the life that I'm living and I cannot imagine living any life different from the one that I'm living now. Pues, I think that its phenomenal to look back on your life and see what it is that has brought you to where you are today... and to keep in mind that even the small decisions that you make can change who you are.
Well those are my thoughts for the day.
Yall be carefull and ojala que estes con una sonrisa!


  1. and you wouldn't have the coolest roommate in the world... and you wouldn't be writing this blog and so your life would be sadder.

  2. Here's another weird one for you... If I hadn't loved the church in Denver City so much my first semester as an AIM student (back when you were what, seven??) then I probably would never have moved back to Texas. Sheesh.
