I'm Tanya. 20 & a UCI junior.
Laughing is my favorite exercise.
My family brings me joy.
My friends make me happy.
Smiles, hellos, highfives, and the like make my day.
People who try to make a difference are beautiful. I strive to become one of them someday.
Those simple, everyday moments are what count. And here I am, blogging away my life story. It may not be interesting, or funny, or even worth reading, but it's life through my eyes, and I cherish every good or bad, strange or cool, fun or boring thing about it.
And I love God for giving me all of these things.

When you start to know someone, all their physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize the scent of their skin. You see only the essence of the person, not the shell. That’s why you can’t fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and your body but not your heart. And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.
