“Amphetamines… when taken in large enough doses produce a temporary psychosis similar to schizophrenia.” This entire chapter of mental disorders is fascinating to me.
It is not clear why women are more likely to become depressed than men, but one...– Psych Textbook.
Turn the other cheek...not yet.
You can ask questions and make statements that are inquisitive. Where you’re just trying to understand the person’s feelings and why they are saying the things they are. However, you can ask those same questions, make those same statements, and have it sound like you’re attacking the person’s morals, belittling them and questioning their intelligence…all of this can...
Everyone is rushing to be the first great_______. I’m just praying I make it.
I need to trust God more. Things always fall apart around finals and then in a few days it’s all back to normal. I have no idea how the fall is going to turn out. Whether I’ll be able to get the classes I register for tomorrow, will I be working in the education field in the fall, will I be a site leader… At this point, if it doesn’t happen then I’ll figure something...
Note to Self:
Never EVER go to a jazz club in the village by yourself. I felt beyond uncomfortable.
Advil and Louis Armstrong…help me out. I’ve hit a brick wall and don’t know where to go.
Get admissions to change my major? Nope Get advised by someone at Steinhardt? Nope Search my classes and make some schedules? Nope Keep myself from becoming broke for the 4th time in a row? Nope Panic and throw a fit?…getting there. Feel incredibly stressed and on the verge of tears as I watch my fall semester crumble? yea.. Two good things happened today though. I hung out with some...
The Price of an Earring.
So one of my pearl earrings broke a while back and I’ve been meaning to fix it with some super glue. I finally get the super glue and before I even put some of it on the earring it somehow lands on my pinky. It says to use warm soapy water…but there’s no warm water in my house. It also says use acetone to remove it, so since I know we have that I fix my earring and decide to...
You said the ____ word!
Context really matters. If you curse AT me, I get quiet and intimidated. If you curse because you’re angry and venting but you don’t direct it to me I feel uncomfortable. If you curse because you’re saying jokes and being funny then I laugh. If you curse on a regular basis, after every single word, I make a mental note not to speak with you again. I was just thinking about...

One day I’ll miss their quirks, but today I find it incredibly annoying. Privacy, consideration…look it up people it’s not that difficult.
Thermal NYU T-shirt EBC HS Sweatpants Coffee I am ready to make up a week’s worth of readings and assignments. Then I’ll run some errands! Busy Busy day.
Frustrated Rant- Sorry
I hate this blame game people tend to play. Everything has to be about who’s right and who’s wrong. Who has done the most and deserves the most credit and who should be judged and belittled. No one gets along, these little moments of laughter and apparent happiness don’t cancel out all the bickering and hatred. Everyone is looking out for themselves and is willing to lie their...
I don’t have the audacity to tell you I miss you after all that’s happened.
I replay it in my mind until it's...
just right. There’s no “taking it for what it is” for me. I over think absolutely everything. I feel like there’s so much miscommunication going on in the world that it’s necessary to take a few extra hours, days, months… to think things over. Just for the satisfaction of knowing that everything is clear, there are no misunderstandings, no rumors, or...
I can’t stand being dismissed.
Deacon until 2013!
Was ordained today. I’m now Diac. Rocio C. It was a beautiful service today and I got a lot of love and positive/encouraging words from everyone. It feels good to know that people have faith in me and believe I can do great things. My Sunday school teacher told me “you’ve always been special” that was probably one of the nicest things anyone has ever told me. It got me...
Don't Preach Equality...
if you’re going to rely on him financially. (or any other way) Random thought: Some girls/women are gold diggers and they don’t even realize it. A boyfriend isn’t there to buy you what your parents can’t, or what you can’t afford. You’re not being slick when you use boys/men for their money because their supposedly all cheaters and liars. No no no, you need...
Realized I can’t finish a reading tonight and this came to mind: I hate the phrase “make time for it.” If I could make the time to read all pages each of my professors assigns don’t you think I would. Because for all the hard work I put in HS and all the money I’m paying to get an education, I think it’s safe to assume that I want an A in all my classes. At...
Nobody likes being alone that much. I don’t go out my way to make friends,...– Toru, Norwegian Wood \ via berrynice (via quote-book) Thank you! I’m not up for making a thousand “friends” that can’t be there for you when you really need them. I much rather have a handful that care for me as much as I care for them.

Life responds when we risk– Rodney Smith (via hit-or-miss) I think this is very true. Sometimes it’s necessary to do something risky, or out of your comfort zone. It helps you realize your potential and encourages you to take things a step further.
You calling me fat?!
So I’m hanging out in the kitchen with my mother. I’m washing the dishes and she’s frying some plantains…naturally. Then she starts dancing by herself and says “we look exactly alike” I just laugh it off and agree. Then she says “but you have to lose your love handles and that little pouch of fat you got there, then we will look identical!” I...
If everything goes well this week, I should have just about the most spectacular weekend. 21st LSP Cruise, I have a great dress and I’m excited to be surrounded by my LPS peers. (Last year guys, we have to end it with a BANG!) 22nd Good Friday Service. I don’t think I’ve ever spent Good Friday at another church, so this should be new and interesting. 23rd Jazz at the Blue...
Sometimes I flirt with the idea that I don’t need anybody to keep me going. But in all honesty, there’s nothing like having a little chat with someone you care about to give you a boost.
Cut me some slack!
It’s weeks like these that really humble me and make me feel stupid for being self conscious all the time. Now…I would really like this to go away so I can lift my head when I walk and stop avoiding people and social events.
I was soo wrong
Never read old emails the night before an exam…especially if you’re cramming. So I’m reading emails from ‘09 and its incredible how different things look. Not only was I pretty busy but I tried so hard to appear responsible and professional that I completely forgot how to be affectionate. I was unbearable. As I’m reading the emails I sent I’m wondering why...
Out with the old!
There’s definitely going to be some new additions to my life very soon. (no babies) But some very good things, once the confirmation is made I’ll let the world know. I can’t wait until things get settled.
It’s definitely possible to be with someone for years and still not know them.
It’s great when you’re being incredibly corny and everyone around you is just accepting you and having a good time. No judgments. I’ve experienced that with a handful of amazing people.
