    One Third Spanish

    I believe I am one third Spanish. I am dark and I can tan well. Though I don't know on what side I get this from. My mother is like me, so it must come from her side, I think!

    Been dating this guy... he is sweet and all, checks on me everyday and cares about me, except for one: he DOESN'T listen. When he thinks he's sure he's right about something, he doesn't care to listen to me anymore. I most of the time just give way to avoid further conflicts...

    I Am Spanish, Believe It Or Not.

    I was born in Barcelona, Spain and I moved to the US 3 years ago. I have no freaking idea who my ancestors are but I am guessing they have must been from Scandinavia due to my red hair, or maybe Ireland...no I don't think so because I don't drink beer.
