LEAVING

Francis Kenneth - Leaving

“We’re brothers, we’re happy and we’re singing and we’re colored. Give me a high five!”

In all seriousness, this is my younger, not-so-little brother, Franz Stanley. Yes, he’s actually six years younger than me. Yes, my dad (Francisco Mendoza) loves his name so much that he named all of my siblings with some sort of rendition of his own name (more on that later). No ladies, he unfortunately is not available. He is currently a second year Environmental Engineering major at UCLA. I have to mention how proud he is to be a Bruin. Por ejemplo…

FS: Dude, my Physics midterm was so hard! (Blah blah blah, something about calculating the speed of a train and some other shit I don’t care about.)
Me: It can’t be that hard. Just wait until you have to start paying bills.
FS: I GO TO UCLA! You don’t understand!

This is an example of a typical conversation with his girlfriend, Talisa, (who’s also a full time cosmetology student and works part time) sounds like…

TR: I’m so tired.
FS: Why?
TR: Because I went straight to work right after I got off from school.
FS: Talisa, you don’t even know. I have 3 midterms. All I do is study. You don’t know how hard UCLA is.

With that being said, I can’t say enough about this kid. He’s worked ridiculously hard to get to where he is now and I’m proud of him. I’m also proud of this outfit I styled for him considering what little we had to work with (he leaves majority of his wardrobe at the dorm when he comes back to the South Bay). I’ve, more or less, shown him how to dress for as long as I can remember and I think that played a big part in my interests in styling. At any rate, I’m looking forward to more experiences and opportunities in styling this year and I’ll be updating the blog as they come along.
