the spark that started it all .. *

welcome to La Bella Vita x0x

this is my little corner of the internet where i can express all the thoughts that go on in this noggin' of mine. i'm very vivacious, and most definitely cannot be tamed. What I post is what appeals to me, what I'm going through in life, and just what goes on in this mind.

It will be random. It will be fabulous. & I guarantee it will keep you addicted.

i am new to the blogging world; however, I've been writing all my life. i love to keep records of my life. things i go through, stuff i learn, the types of people i meet, the multiple jobs i have and how i got them, etc. etc. why? because at the end of the year, i just love reading back on it and most of the time i end up saying "wow, I'm so glad i wrote that down because I would have never remembered it." and of course the few times i say "omg, i was sooo stupid!!" lol I ex-cogitate everything, i carefully plan every litttle detail of every little thing. It comforts me to know everything has been planned out.

My Blog name is Rica -- It's a pseudonym. i am Puerto Rican. & i needed something to go by because i don't always like telling people i don't really know or like my real name-- not to mention i really hate my real name. haha ;]

i'm very domesticated. I'd make one amaaaazing wife. i can't tell you how many times i hear that a week .. i am obsessed with a clean home, and am therefore always cleaning  and organizing.

i love the smell of a clean home as well, and am constantly lighting candles. I also love looking at recently vacuumed carpets.

refer to the picture --> :: see what i mean hehe =p


i live in Chicago.

i will never love another city as much as i love this one.

I'm grounded __ with all i have i must realize can be taken away at a moment's notice, well with no notice at all really, and we all should therefore count our blessings every hour of the day.
I'm a child abuse awareness advocate-- i feel strongly for helping abused children, and am determined to work as a social worker/advocate for neglected/ abused/ confused children as i can relate to what they are going through on more ways than most would ever think.

I have hopes of making a career out of it but at this point my career is turning more toward my second love and that is event planning, so i do wish to continue advocating for youths through volunteering efforts as best as i can.

it wasn't until recently i started volunteering at Catholic Charities in which I get to do just that. i enjoy making people feel good about themselves, and pushing confidence back into girls who have lost their self-esteem, whether from a bad boyfriend, parents, or otherwise. I change it up a bit as to which department I am working in which varies by our services, and then divided into age groups.

I must say my heart smiles the most when working with preteen girls. i can't believe how much i can relate to them. it brings back all those feelings i had at that age, and looking back now how i would've done and handled things differently. things that seems to horrible then merely scratch the surface now.

so this is a little about myself.

i would love to read others' blog pages, and learn about you all as well!

please don't hesitate to post your blog link as a comment here, and i will share my two cents at my earliest convenience!

thanks dollfaces && i look forward to building my blog site up from the ground up to the stars in the sky.
