The 5am Club: Let's wake up at 5am!

For the longest time now, I have been wanting to become an early bird. As a nigh owl, this is definitely a great challenge for me because I have trouble sleeping early as well as trouble sleeping...period! The other day I tried going to sleep at 11pm and ended up falling asleep past 12am. Needless to say, I wasn't able to get up when my alarm went off at 5am. Another thing, I am a lover of sleeping and naps.  Even though I have failed my attempts to wake up early in the past few days, I am still trying. I haven't given up (I think I get early-bird points for that, no? lol).

I thought that inviting my friends to do this with me would be a motivator. However, none of those lazy butts wanted to join me. One even said,

"I'll wake up at 5am when hell freezes over but I will support you in spirit." 

Yes, I appreciate the "spirit" support, but will not come close to sharing the waking-up-early struggle. Then a miracle happened, my sister agreed to attempt this challenge with me! So, as of now, the plan is to start tomorrow - Tuesday, July 28, 2015. 

The reason why I am interested in getting into the habit of waking up at 5am (or 6am), is because I always read that the most successful people wake up super early. As many of us, I aspire to be successful too. It makes sense that staring off your day early will give you extra hours to get more things done. Also, to do the things you keep saying you "want" to do but keep telling everyone you have "no time" for. I have a feeling that if you're anything like me, those those things may include: exercise, do homework, have peaceful ME-time, or have more time for your hobbies.

Lately, I have read some articles that talk about personal experiences of people deciding to wake up at 5am, that have had amazing results. They claim it changes their lives, that it gives them more energy, and that they are much happier now. To be honest, another reason why I want to do this is  because those claims seem a bit too extreme. Too good to be true! Thusly, I want to see for myself. I want to experience waking up early for a good chunk of time and see what results I get. By "chunk of time" I mean a month or more.

Now, having said all of that, I would like to extend the invitation to all you lovely people reading this post. As I told my friends: Lets wake up at 5am to become better people (as in, an improved version of the person we are today) and accomplish more goals. Join me, we can do it together!

I will give updates on how its going on my social medias (Twitter, Periscope, Snapchat & Instagram), where you can find me at @NalaAdor

I am hoping to be able to keep it up. So:

May the force be with me!!!

5 Traditional Mexican Hats

After my last post about the Ricky Ricardo Straw hat, I became interested in other types of hats worn in different parts of the world. So here are 5 traditional hats worn in Mexico.

1. The Mariachi Hat The Mariachi hat is usually worn by someone that is a part of a Mariachi group. The hat is part of the typical Mariachi outfit. Compared to the charro hat (see below), the mariachi hat is much more elaborate and fancy looking. However, as with many other things, it varies. By the way, check out the details, on those hats! Prettyful.

2. The Charro Hat When I think of a Charro, what comes to mind is a Mariachi singer. However, Charros are usually men that participate in Rodeo Competitions. Also, I noticed that sombreros de charro are usually less decorated than those worn by Mariachi groups. 

3. The Vaquero Hat This is probably one of the most well known Mexican hats because these hats are usually used to depict the cowboy image.  Here's a spanish lesson for ya: Un vaquero = A cowboy

4. Th…

Review: Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta - Creamy Chicken Alfredo

Hi there Dear friends,  Today I bring you a food review that I just had to share! I feel I must share this with you because I was pleasantly surprised on how good this was. It's Pizza Hut's Tuscani Pasta in Creamy Chicken Alfredo. I have personally never tried these pastas, so I was skeptical. However, on this particular day  was at Targe and was starving because I had not eaten all morning. Thus, I decided to try this pasta. 
 I am happy to report that, yes, this is very creamy. It also has a good amount of chicken in it, which makes it that more filling. The top is somewhat crusty and when you get past it, its where the sauciness comes to play. The taste of the actual Alfredo sauce is also very flavorful and delicious. 
They say that when you are extremely hungry, everything tastes good. BUT, I can tell you that to me this creamy pasta was very delicious and definitely would recommended. So, if one sad day, you find yourself at Target with an empty stomach, do not hesitate …

The Routine...

As students, we all have that dreaded period where everything seems to pile up with no sign of slowing down. We also all have that friend that just seems to always forget they're a student and who happens drag you down their own stress lane without giving a second thought that you might be stressing too. "Hey, I have my own stressors ok! Calm down and get it together!" Haha. Steering back to course, here is a short story written and inspired by one such friend during our high school years. 
The red velvet curtains open up to a heavily breathing boy with sweat dripping down the sides of his temples:
"Oh, no! No, no, no!" cried Edgar an early morning.
"What happened?" said Rita tilting her head with an i-know-what-you-did kind of look. "Its my homework-- I..." "You didn't do it and its an essay thats due today by 3rd period" Rita said quickly interrupting Edgar. "Ha! Yes." Answered Edgar with a half guilty smile. "I did…
