Speaking up about things I believe in was once a tough task, until I really experienced Life. Sometimes we get so accustomed to only thinking and speaking on good things that happen and that we want to happen, we often forget those bad times and things that made us who we are. Those bad things that pushed us to fight for what we believe in. In a perfect world we Always want things to go exactly how we want them in a precise time frame abs order. However, the way life is setup you will go through the complete opposite a million times before you get your "perfect" experience. I guess this is why our parents try to teach us patience, to prepare us for Life. So learn from all your experiences in life good and bad. The bad actually helps you appreciate the good.
In response to someone who still comes by this blog, yes, I have graduated (few months ago actually). So yes, speaking to you as a doctor. Not the useful kind.
Still impressed that people drop by every now and then. I came today to actually delete this blog and then well, ended up writing here instead.
No, not married. Probably will never be. Still with same guy, if that counts towards anything. He does not make me overwhelming happy, which is what I aspire to have and know is possible because I have had that before. But he's very good for me. He loves me a lot. And responds to my flaws impressively.
I'm still having a quarter life crisis (it's been a 4-6 year quarter-life crisis? think it's just called my life) i.e. not sure whom I am going to end up with, unemployed (and don't even care), depressed, anxious, suicidal.
Hah, can you imagine, I'll be 27 in 2 months' time. Can't even believe I'm saying that on a webpage that I started, what, 10 years ago? When I wasn't even an... (more)
During the first Presidential Debate New York City
was used as an example of effective use of stop-
and frisk, when it was in effect. Here are the
..Stop-and-frisk, as it was practiced in New York City,
was ineffective in reducing violent crime. But it had an
overwhelmingly disproportionate impact on young
black and Latino men. The New York Police
Departmentâ€™s data shows that 90 percent of stops
conducted under stop-and-frisk were young men of
color who had done nothing wrong. And the level of
racial profiling went from discriminatory to absurd:
In 2011, more young black men were stopped and
frisked than there were young black men living in
New York City. This suggests that many young men
were stopped multiple times. That same year,
weapons were found on 1.8 percent of black and
Latino people who were stopped, but on 3.8 percent
of white people who were stopped â€” nearly double

Want to create a word bank for Spanish words? All you need is a box such as a shoe box or other box, a pair of scissors, and paper. Collect words you have recently learned and write them on paper. Cut them up and put them in the box. You can inspect it monthly to see how many words you have learned.
You can also cut up words you see in a newspaper. Keep two columns titled, "words I know" and "words I don't know." Choose words you know and write them on paper. You can make it an activity to learn the words you don't know and eventually add them to the word bank.
Keep a tally of how many words you learn in a month. It will be exciting to see your progress each month.
Saving words will become a natural habit, and you will be surprised at how much you can really learn.
