The New face of AminoKou


So, my portfolio just got a revamp, and it’s looking prettier than ever. I had the last design for about 4 years and even though I loved it (Hey, my favorite color is Grey, of course I loved it!) it was time for a change, actually It had been time for a change for a while, but lets not get into that.

Anyway, the thing is that I finally got a little time to get my portfolio looking the way I wanted, and now it’s here.

Before you say anything, yes, I like my portfolio looking all in black and white, for the longest time my colors were purple, white and black, until I learnt to accept the fact that it’s just not me. I’m pretty set on my monochromes, Black, white and grey are my babies when it comes to personal projects, and actually even now I struggle a lot not to have Ringo-Ish fully on grey, cause this is my colorful space (yes, I said colorful).

Click on any of the images to go.

Speaking of websites, I’ve been working on another personal one for a project I want to start soon. I don’t want to say much about it, cause it’s still a bit in the air, but you’ll see within the next month.

So, yey for websites? Bye!


Good things happen in life

The picture above has literally nothing to do with this entry, it is just a school assignment I just happened to love and wanted to share, I hope you like it as much as I do. It’s a collage, I just scanned it :).

I hate to get all hocus pocus in here, but I HAVE to say it:

It’s so amazing when you set your mind into something, when you decide you WILL accomplish something, and then let it go, so sure and confident that it will happen, and then, oh my gosh, it does.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to stop messing around and start actively working on everything I needed to *finally* start running my own business. I decided that by my next birthday, (not this year, but 2011) I’d have accomplished a specific goal I set for myself in this area. Well, today I got to talk to a very dear friend I had not seen in almost 2 years.

We just spent about 3 hours talking, and pretty much as we’re saying goodbye, he says ‘Oh, hey! I have this business proposal you might be interested in’ And guess what? I am…

I am so happy. I just have to share. Manifest, people, manifest. I have so much to do, and it’s so so late.

Good night.

I am…

… a ponicorn princess.
… quitting TV as a habit
… a full-time student, full-time investigator and a full time positive thinker
… planning a hell lot of things.
… deeply proudly organized
… not crying anymore… and it feels good.
… in love and fascinated by love. I can’t believe I am this deep into you.
… being proven wrong about some things that I found to be unfair, but out of my control
… feeling quite happy with the way my life is evolving.
… living so much, I didn’t remember how good it felt

The 88 days project

Your power lies in knowing that you are always changing and being responsible for the quality of that change. If every 88 days or so your body completely regenerates then in 3 months time you can be a whole new you! Now that’s real power. So what are you going to do with all that power?

Pretend it doesn’t exist and keep behaving like a victim in all your old habits? Or take charge of the situation and Re-invent yourself?
Go on I dare you!

The body coach reinvented

A few days ago, my friend Dafne showed me the quote above and it got me thinking about how hard would it really be to change my life, to transform myself into someone different, someone who made me happier than I am right now.

I made a short list about the things I would like to improve or even completely change about my life, things from fears, insecurities, etc. And after revising it a bit, I thought ‘Why not changing them in 88 days?’ That’s how I’ve come with the idea of The 88 days project.

I decided I would work on it for each and every single day on the following 88 starting last monday, which means that by  Oct 14 I will have accomplished all my goals, So to make it even more official (Cause I know that if I keep it to myself I will probably end up procrastinating and eventually forgetting about it) I am keeping a registry of this on my daily planner,and I’m also writing a part of the ever-expanding list of…

Things to work on the next 88 days

  1. Conquering my fear of the dark
  2. Cutting the negative people out of my life
  3. Improving my already awesome relationship
  4. Setting AminoKou as a formal business
  5. Writing more articles for El Espejismo
  6. Paying more attention to my health
  7. Working on my relationship with my mom
  8. Saving!!!
  9. Stopping my media dependance
  10. Reclaiming my identity
  11. Cutting my candy addiction from the root.

There’s more of course, some of the things I decided to work on are a bit more personal, but after all this whole process is just about redirecting your focus and re-entering your life with a new more positive attitude. It’s all about creating a new you.

How to do it?

As of Monday I started working on my intense fear of darkness. It may sound silly or childish to say so, or it may even remind you of that 90’s canadian-american TV show, but I’ve been terribly afraid of the dark for about 5 years. Yes,pretty irrational,but that’s precisely how phobias act: irrationally, messing with a part of your brain you don’t really get. I don’t really know how it started, cause I remember not being like this until recently. So I began exposing myself  to the thing I was most afraid of: Sleeping in the dark.

I normally sleep with my TV on, which I am aware is not the healthiest thing to do; not only you’re exposed to the radiation emitted by the TV during your sleep hours, but also, all this noise does not really allow you to rest properly, So, on monday night I decided I would turn my tv off, and instead of sleeping with my regular cartoon channel on, I left my laptop on playing When Harry met Sally until I fell asleep. Last night, instead of a movie I read a bit until I decided I was sleepy enough to go to bed without spending the well-known minutes worrying about the dark. It worked. I woke up at 3 am once and then again at 5 30 cause I was having a nightmare, but I consider this to be a huge success.

Even though waking up after my nightmare was terrifying and I even thought of slowing my pace. I did not turn the TV on, and I won’t do it tonight, instead, I am trying it again.

That’s what it’s all about, doing what it takes to help you reach your goal. For example, I want to cut my media dependance. How can I do this? Identifying where is my dependance coming from, and slowly walking away from it. In my case it’s all from TV and Internet,So I’m going to start slowly getting away from these two. I’m not cutting it completely, I’m just going to use them less and fill the extra time with healthier activities.

That’s All, just list what you want to change, identify how each point behaves and break it! You can even indulge yourself after you have accomplished one of your goals, I know that after I get to sleep quietly in full dark I will buy something to cheer me up! It doesn’t even have to be something expensive, even a cheap set of bangles will do.

I am aware that the most difficult part for me will be cutting off the negative people, but I have to try it, and I’ll set my most decadent prize for this one.

Are you joining me on this? If so, what are your plans for the next 88 days? I am so excited. I’ll keep you posted on my 88 days journey.

Sharing the Love

Cause it’s time for a good list to come.

As you may have read, I wasn’t feeling very happy last week. I am way better right now, mainly because I received a text during the night that pumped my mood, that’s why I suddenly decided to share some of my reasons to be happy, so here it goes from yourstruly with lots of love.

  • Recommending DAR comic to Gala Darling and then seeing how much she liked it on her Carousel. Then seeing how Erika Moen (DAR creator) loved being linked there. Erika Moen is one of my personal heroes and I even cite her as an influence on my artwork.
  • Receiving my business cards. They are so cute! I love how they look like two different cards in one. You have the Front picture up here, I won’t be posting the back, cause it has my personal info, and well, that would be stupid.
  • Working on friend and personal websites.
  • Medicinal Marzipan. I found this website on one of my nightly routines of reading through FML, OMG Facts, Six Billion Secrets, GMH and LGMH (in that order) before going to bed and I found it through the BlogHer network. Medicinal Marzipan? Such a great website!

  • These two guys make my life really awesome. I love them to pieces
  • Thinking about giving [] a small revamp. Next friday is the first anniversary (for real, not the one I posted about two months ago) and if things go as I plan them I will concrete the revamp on Aug-Sept. Too soon to talk, but still.
  • My Video Production class. If I’m not mistaken it will be over nest week and I just had the best idea for my video.

Sometimes you need a formal memo

  • The super funny, cute and amazing stationary lists on Modcloth. Pretty indeed
  • Trying to get my hands on a copy of Stardust, cause I love talking about movies and I know the boy would just love the story. Speaking of…
  • The boyfriend. I can’t stress how happy I am that this super amazing boy I am in love with got into my life. That’s all.
  • Wanting to go back to school. It’s not even that. I want to go back to my life, to my city, to my house, to the things I know and love, like seeing my friends, having a big-big store 50 mts. away and cooking for myself.

  • Why have I been watching iCarly so much for the past two days? Why have I been enjoying it this much? Have you noticed Miranda Cosgrove looks a lot like Lucy Liu? Is it just me? Yes? Ok Mysteries in life…
  • Wondering what would I do if I just had a couple of months to live. I wonder. I wonder… Do you?
  • Thinking through a lot… A lot…

What do you love right now, ponies?

Introducing AminoKou

I’ve been working on this for a while, and It’s finally ready to be shown. Let me introduce you to my online portfolio.

It took so much time to complete, that when it was finally ready, I wasn’t even sure it was really ready, so I spent about 2 weeks checking it over and over to make sure. But it’s done, so here you have it, after such a long time, it’s ready. I’m incredibly happy for this. Check it out please!!!

I also have other good news.

A few weeks ago I told you I was applying for two more majors, well, yesterday I received the results. The answer? I was admitted in both of them! I actually feel very happy and proud of myself, which, specially the last one, is very uncommon in me; I am aware of how hard it is to be accepted in one of those majors in particular, and I was accepted, on my first try. Yey!

Lately, a lot of things are going as expected, and even better than that. Which to be quite honest, even though it makes me happy, it also freaks me out a bit. Don’t they say that it’s a universal truth that if a part of your life improves another mysteriously collapses. I refuse to believe this, I don’t like to allow negativity into my life, but still it makes me wonder. I won’t think about that, I’ll just focus on being happy.

But enough with this self-centeredness. Tell me, how are you doing, ponies?
