About Butterflies

A few years ago, I started a blog. It was pretty crappy and so I deleted it and created a whole new one! This blog is just my brother and I being real and who we are. We have started a YouTube account under the same name (Butterfliesnbowties). I want to give you a little bit of information about me so that you don’t feel like a stranger. Hopefully, in a few weeks, I can do an FAQ post. I plan on posting more than once a week but I am a student as well as I have a job so we’ll see how those both work out!

  1. I am currently 22 years old. My birthday is coming up in less than 2 months.
  2. I live with my parents but that will be soon be changing.
  3. I am a full time Humanities student.
  4. I am a transfer student going from a small community college in Northern California to San Diego State University this fall!
  5. I have two very handsome godsons. Hunter and Brady, they call me Nina.backup on 3.14.16 1155
  6. I do not have a favorite singer or band. I listen to almost every and anything. My boyfriend really likes country and so for him, I’m trying to listen little by little.
  7. My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a half and we will be moving to San Diego together and moving in together!
  8. I have the most supportive family that I know. I am so grateful that I have the parents that I have and that no matter what, they will support me in everything that I do.
  9. Humanities is my major and I want to go into counseling. I want to work with elementary aged students with mental and educational difficulties.
  10. On my dad’s side of the family, I am nicknamed “The Baby Whisperer”. Babies tend to come to me and fall asleep in my arms. I absolutely love babies and one day, I would love to be a mom.
  11. Pintrest is my addiction. I actually got my mom hooked as well. I plan on doing a weekly Pintrest Fail/Win blog post or YouTube video for you guys! If there are any suggestions, I’m totally open to them!
  12. I love to color. It’s my new hobby and for Christmas, I actually got my loved ones coloring books and colored pencils.
  13. I am not big on politics but there are several topics that I feel very strong about. One of those is immigration. My great grandparents were immigrants and because of them, I have the opportunities that I have.
  14. My brother and I shared a graduation day recently. He graduated from high school and I from the local community college.IMG_2961
  15. I want to start a Bullet Journal but am too afraid that I’ll do it wrong. I know that there is no right or wrong way to do a BuJo but still.
  16. I just learned how to make my grandma’s “World Famous Tortillas”. They are honestly the best tortillas I have ever had. She is getting older and now that I am moving away, my boyfriend wants me to be able to keep on the family tradition.
  17. One of my favorite seasons of the year is summer! I love the warm weather and so many birthdays (mine!) occur in August!
  18. One of my biggest fears is cats. I have always been afraid of cats for as long as I can remember.
  19. I love shopping just as any girl does but I save money when shopping. Just recently, I spent $10 for three Bath and Body Works products. I always shop sales before anything and I head straight for the sale that is 50% off or more.
  20. I love my family and they are really my number one priority.
  21. I am not superstitious or into astrology and I don’t believe in lucky numbers but I have a 

    favorite number which is 8.

  22. I probably could live off of Kit Kat bars.
  23. When I was little, I would read so many books. I would go to shower and while waiting for the water to warm up, I would go and read. 45 minutes later, I would be yelled at by my mom for reading and not being in the shower!!
  24. My longest job was a desk job and I was there for just under two years. I absolutely loved it!
  25. My brother and I are really close! Last year, we had a rough year going through a lot of personal issues but now we are both back home and spending as much time together before I leave in August. backup on 3.14.16 1207
