I sometimes feel that people forget about the art of hosting. This includes anything to do with customer service, retail, catering, and even hosting guests at home or visiting a university. It is an art that some people do not see and do not know how to do. What is funny is that they are in it and see it as any other job. For those that see it or interpret hosting or customer service as any other job... They truly should NOT be doing it. If you do not love taking care of people and you can't seem to understand that your services to others could really bring happiness to
someone then you will be doing people a favor by not working in this customer service industry or hosting. Customer service, hosting for others is an art that I appreciate because you make people feel good and you can even make their day better by how you give them the attention and service they deserve. We all like to be pampered and love the idea to escape for a simple dinner, vacation, or be shown the respect you represent on behalf of the establishment you work for. All this ties into customer service. So please if you are in customer service remember that it's an art. Every person you host and attend to with customer service is a new canvas that needs to painted with our respects as great hosts!

From to 2012 and into 2013!

It has been a while since I have blogged. 2012 has been a busy year and there is much to talk about, but I also believe that we have experienced many moments in 2012 that take time to learn how to speak about them. It has been a year since our last blog, so I will do my best to sum up as much as I can. We would like to dedicate this post to all the people that we have met in 2012 and have shown to be TRUE friends. We are blessed with wonderful people who have come into our lives and have been there to help us through the year. We are always also very humble and appreciate everything that has come our way and the accomplishments we have reached this year. Victor and I both graduated with our Bachelors and both of us are the first in our families. We come from a long journey with many road blocks in our paths. We both have seen the road of being homeless, not knowing where our next meal would come from, and our families turning their backs on us during our young years. We both did what we needed in order to survive and strive forward. Many times we had to rethink our pathway and make adult decisions that 16 to 18 year olds normally don't make until their 20s. All in all we both stumbled upon an angel, Rick Schroder. He became our mentor and our savior and did what our parents did not. He guided us into a light that brought us to Idaho State University in 2006 and now we both can smile with our degrees in our hands thanks to this wonderful man! Thank you Rick for what you have done for us! You gave us hope and inspiration to one day pass this gift to someone who will need it. It is because of you coming into our lives that we saw a good path and graduated in 2012. Victor was blessed with a wonderful job at Portneuf Medical Center and has made friends with a lot of wonderful people that have accepted him for who he is. We also have been blessed with a great job that I love at Idaho State University and both Victor and I are grateful and thankful to have a great boss! As the International Recruiter/Study Abroad Coordinator at Idaho State University and the International Programs Office I have had the honor to have Maria Fletcher as a boss. She is a wonderful leader and Director that appreciates higher education. She believes in mentoring and leading with outstanding leadership! We are thankful for the great team at IPO and feel honored to be part of the team! But most of all I am doing what I love in my career and I am truly thankful for that. My goal in life is to pass the gift I have received from Rick and Maria and pass it to other students! Vic and I also have created wonderful and strong friendships with Kristina and Andy James who are the most wonderful couple ever with a great future ahead of them. Vic and I are thankful to you Kristina for how you have been there for us and you have kept it real. Rachel we remember when we first met you through Danson. I remember that one day after the first semester in Danson when we ran into each other in the LA Building. Ever since we became closer and good friends, which was unexpected and a great surprise! Thank you for always lending an ear Rachel. We had a great trip to Vegas with Kristina and Rachel that made us all grow as friends and we all learned a little more about each other. We love you Rachel and Tina and thank you for accepting us into your lives! But there are so many people we are thankful for and we wish you a prosperous 2013, so here it goes; Thank you Linda, Rosa, Glen, Brenna and Lori Oliver, Timmia, Hannah, Gena, Lauralee  and Chuck Zimmerly, Megan, Kendra, Abeer, Jesse, Gene, Adam, Shawn, Sam, Kinzie, Heather, Sheena, Amanda and her family, Scott, Beth Cork, and Chelsea Kaminska! Wooh, sure hope we did not forget anyone else and if we did, we wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Years!  Just like everyone we also lost someone that we considered close enough to be family. It saddens us that there could be people that could break your heart and sometimes what is broken cannot be replaced. So we learn to move forward, put a smile on our face, and learn to be stronger. But we wish them the best in 2013 along with health, happiness, and good fortune! We are also thankful for the Danson family and their hard work. 2012 was a strong year! Danson keep the dancing strong and know that your positive spirit is what keeps it going! Circus has been great and we are looking forward to Circus Pt 3 and "Bringing the Circus to ISU" in 2013 (fingers crossed)! This year I also was accepted into the MPA program and completed my first semester! We are also thankful for our vacation to Hawaii! Vic and I grew even closer together, caught up on a lot of nice conversations about our lives and where we want to head with our family. We got to take time to slow down and enjoy some time together and remind each other of what really matters in life. I am thankful for having Vic, having breath, health, and love in my life. Victor also lost his sister Alejandra in a tragic car accident that took her life. Alejandra we love you... Our hearts go to all the innocent people in this world that are no longer with us and were not fortunate enough to see 2013. Our love goes out to the innocent souls no longer with us and their families. To all of the people in our lives once again Happy New Years, we love you, and here is to making the best of 2013!!!

June & July

Every year we look forward to this to months because a lot of special things have happened with in. Our wedding Anniversary, Victor's Birthday, My Birthday, and most importantly it is time that brings a lot of good memories that will be remembered for years amongst good friends. These months along with the special events brought a lot of unity, happiness, and good people together. These people have grown within our hearts and have become very special to us. So we would just like to take a moment to thank those wonderful people for creating such amazing memories that we will laugh, cry, and talk about for years to come. These memories are the things that bring good to our lives and make it worth living and embracing life.
Thank you

Choose your Friends Wisely

There are many people that use the term friend loosely, but some of us when we call you friend we mean it in our hearts. In the end we as humans are responsible and should be smart enough to know that some friends are not truly friends, some friends are just their, and some friends will disappoint you, but most all friends will in the end just be acquaintances that pass through your life. And as these friends/acquaintances pass through your life they will have a lot, little, or no impact in your life. Some of us as friends only see the good in those people and hope that maybe we have made another good friendship that will last for many years to come or even a life time. Sadly, those friendships of many years or life time friendships are rare... A Wise man once told us, "You are not my friend until after I have known you for over 5 years". At the time I did not understand what he meant, but as we looked back at all the people we called friends and where they stood in our lives, we discovered that most of them could not be called friends and some of them we could not believe that we even called them friends! In the end some of these revelations break our hearts because you think you know someone, but you really don't... In college we have met many people that till now have become not just friends, but family in less than 5 years and that is because they genuinely have loved us and have been there for us through thick and thin (Thank you). We have also met people that have passed through our lives posing as friends with their own agenda and this make us feel used! We don't have much to offer, but we can offer you our true friendship through thick and thin. For those who posed as friends, stop playing mind games with people who have good intentions and good feelings of being your friend! Figure out your own life before you pretend to be a friend, and over all respect yourself and love yourself in order to have friends that you can call friends 5 years later down your life.

And to the Family and Friends that were present at our wedding and through preparations (you know who you are) thank you for being in our lives and being so supporting as family!

Neri and Being Gay with spiritual belief

My grandmother passed away on February 27th, 2011 at 11:30am... I had not seen her since the age of 5. I left my country (Nicaragua) after the president was assasinated and the sandinistas took over the government, everyone's property, and began to forcefully recruit young men/boys as early as the age of 7 for the military. My mom, dad, my brother Edward and I fled to the U.S. to avoid being caught in the turmoils of the country. I don't have many memories about Nicaragua and my family there, but the few that I do have I've made myself hold on to them and remind me of the happy times. When I heard my grandmother passed away those memories flooded my head. When I was 4 years old my grandmother Neri and I use to take long walks in Esteli. The houses were old and varied in pastel colors, the roads were unpaved, and the stray dogs were friendly. Neri lived with my grandfather and my aunts and uncles in this house where the floors would be cold at night because they were concrete, but I use to love laying and falling asleep on that floor during the hot days, because they were cool. The kitchen in the house had a huge clay oven on one end, a small rustic sink on the other end, and there was no floor but only dirt. I remember that when I would get upset, got hurt, or was just in the dumps my Neri would run to the corner and get me a snow cone. She would come back with the snow cone melting because it was so hot, but I still loved it because she got it for me. Non of my other brothers really knew her or shared those young memories like I did, and I miss her for that. I missed my time to see her once more in this life time. I think of her everyday now, more than ever. I think of how she is in a better place and hopefully looking down at me. This pass week I performed and decided to dedicate all my performances to my Neri. You see I was raised catholic and my family was raised strict Roman catholic. I don't go to church on a regular basis because I do not believe that I have to step into a church and pay my dues for god to know that I believe in him. Since I was 5 years old I always liked boys and now men. No one corrupted me, no one made me gay. So I truly believe that god made me this way, and he loves me for who I am. I still pray every night, and yes I still believe in my guardian angel, but I also believe that I can be in a center place within myself and my spirituality and be true to myself as a happy married gay man! And just to make things clear I believe in the power of ones self spirituality and not the religions that man has created through time. I believe in the good of people, I believe that my grandmother loves me for who I am, and that no one should pass judgment on others. I believe in true love and the power of self and inner strength. People should not drown in trying to hide who they are, but should be happy by being themselves and if those around you do not accept you for who you are, then those people do not have unconditional love for you and are selfish. It is more exhausting pretending to be someone your not, and trying to make those around you happy. It is less exhausting and even more liberating to be yourself and being surrounded by those who will protect you, love you, and accept you for who you truly are as unique human individual!
